From the equality of rights springs identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own. Carl Schurz

A letter to my MP on Trump's Muslim ban

Dear Mr. Maloney, I am writing to you today to register my dismay at Trump's ban on Muslim refugees.

In the thirties Canada along with other nations turned away Jews fleeing the Nazi's, today we are presented with an opportunity to redress that tragedy by offering sanctuary to US visa holders from these banned nations.

We not only have this duty to each other as humans but also as active members of NATO which is  to a large extent responsible for this refugee crisis.

As World War 2 taught us appeasement of evil is itself a crime against humanity so I implore you and your government to stand up for what is right.

Open your (our) arms to those in need .
