I ask that you open your arms to immigrants and refugees alike, proceeding with a normal degree of caution as before, and have America shine like a New Colossus once again, welcoming those "huddled masses yearning to be free."
The fine line between prosecution of the guilty and persecution of the innocent is a perennial problem, and a major theme in the Bible. It is addresse...
We cannot afford to lose a generation of scientists, mathematicians, entrepreneurs, and faith leaders of Jessica's caliber. We must provide equitable postsecondary educational opportunities for undocumented children.
The GOP establishment is scared that Trump will drive a record number of Latino out to vote. I can think of no better way for Latinos to reject Trump than to make that Republican nightmare a reality. Register. Vote in record numbers.

Oh, how I blushed when President Obama told a Muslim American audience at a Maryland mosque "We are one American family". As a working father from Dea...
