If a company is done with an employee, guest workers often find themselves stranded in the U.S. without a job. After five years as an H-1B, employers are required to start paying social security, so the worker becomes less attractive. When the job is over, so is the visa, making them into illegals.

Alice O'Leary Randall

Learning history will not solve the world's problems and despair is an appropriate response to recent events but it must be a temporary response. We must place our own time in context with others because that is how we advance, that is how things get better. There will always be terror that darkens our days but there is always light and nothing casts a brighter light than knowledge.

At the fourth nuclear security summit this week, world leaders will discuss how to prevent ISIS and other terrorists from getting their hands on the ingredients of nuclear terror. And Belgium's prime minister might be the leader with the most to say. Since the 2014 summit, Belgium has suffered a number of suspicious and alarming activities at its nuclear sites.

If the U.S. government obtains the information from the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone, what will they do with the evidence if it points to Saudi Arabia or another U.S. ally? I fear that justice for the San Bernardino victims' families will follow the same fate of the 9/11 families and receive no help from those government officials who "know the truth."
