Today is a particularly significant day, and not just because it is the 261st birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Today was the March for Life in Washington. “Life is winning again in America,” Vice President Mike Pence said to the gathered crowds.
Today President Trump signed his “extreme vetting” executive order which, among other things, bans Syrian refugees until further notice, and caps refugees entering the US in 2017 at 50,000, out of fear that radical Islamic terrorists will smuggle spies and saboteurs in with refugees.
Today is also the 72nd anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the Nazi death camp where an estimated 1.1 million Jews and others were killed. Many of these Jews might have been able to flee to the US but for the fact that at the outbreak of World War II, “immigration officials tightened visa policies for immigrants and non-immigrants . . . out of fear that the Nazis could smuggle spies and saboteurs in with refugees.”
Life is winning again? Really?
