The Des Moines Register’s Rekha Basu is disheartened at the Trumpling of immigrants and refugees. Here’s a snippet from her column:
I’m not Muslim or from one of the affected countries, and I’m now a U.S. citizen. But emotionally, the actions shake me to my core.

I have as much to do with terrorism as any Muslims being turned away at the airports. And tomorrow the targets could be India’s Sikhs, the religion of my mother.
Do please read the rest.
