Letter: Helpful Muslims

When our son, a U.S. Marine, was in Iraq, his unit worked with a local interpreter. Since the young Iraqi man helped the Americans, all of his immediate family was killed.

Our son, with the help of my husband, was able to assist this young man to enter the United States. He is now a productive American citizen.

Not all people in “Muslim-majority” nations named in the recent executive order are terrorists intending to harm Americans.

Unfortunately, there are Americans of all religions who can be hateful and inflict harm on fellow Americans.
