A New Gentleness

An NPR report in the last few days described a new immigration policy initiated with the beginning of 2010 that would no longer separate parents from children who had illegally entered this country while they waited for disposition of their cases in holding or detention centers. This kindness to those who have primarily come here in search of a better life speaks for a sense of common humanity that we may cherish and hope to see more of in this coming year. Hopefully, in the same vein, it will ultimately elicit a review of our immigration policy that is not based on fear but on this same sense of humanity.
