Rafts of life

Editor,

Children crossing our southern borders are much more than immigrants — they are brave refugees who are smart enough to better their circumstances from crime, drugs, hatred, starvation and violence. They don’t want to be swallowed into holes of brutal infamy. They know that good things can happen to them with a better life in the United States. To refuse admittance or acceptance is great disrespect for human welfare and not what this country is all about.  

I know when I was allowed to enter the U.S., at a young age, I thought I was in paradise. And I still do.

Daily Journal Quick Poll
 
What do you think of the pending closure of Tpumps in downtown San Mateo?

Surprised, it was super popular
Makes sense, the shop was too small
Hope they find their way back to San Mateo soon
There are plenty of other boba tea places
Glad, boba drinks make the sidewalks a sticky mess
