It is easy to say, “Come to America. It will be fine.” But nothing is that simple.
I remember when Hmong refugees were brought to America after the Vietnam War. Thousands of churches and individuals worked tirelessly to resettle the newcomers, family by family. It was hard.*
I hope all the folks calling us to open our nation to today’s refugees are ready to roll up their sleeves and open their arms. If you think it is the right thing for America to do, then it is the right thing for you to do.
