“A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.”
– Dwight D. Eisenhower
The United States of America is a nation of immigrants. There are vast numbers of refugees in this world desperately seeking a safe haven. We should be mindful that, for so many of us, the rights and privileges we enjoy are largely due to the fact that this great nation permitted our forebears to enter this country. We should not be pulling up the ladder simply because we have already found our safe haven.
