Thank you for the commentary by John M. Crisp in The Tribune on Sept. 2 (“The southern border isn’t necessarily a fine line”). I find the increasing focus on borders very sad.
Donald Trump wants a wall on our southern border, Scott Walker suggests a wall on our northern border and Hungary has constructed a razorwire fence along its border with Serbia. All of these are meant to keep out people, humans like the rest of us, seeking an escape from violence and a chance at a better life.
We need to hear more voices like Mr. Crisp’s and see more actions by countries trying to help migrants and refugees rather than shut them out. We need to remember our common humanity.
