[FDR’s rejection of refugees] is an example of what went on and still does (“What We Can’t Forget When We Remember Anne Frank,” June 20). We either have an open door or we don’t. People who need a place to be safe should be able to come here and know they can be safe. From what I have seen, refugees come here, they get jobs and they move forward. All of us came here at whatever date to be free and to build our lives. Being here first doesn’t make us special.

All in the Family
I write in reference to “Taking a Stand for the Jews of Europe” op-ed (June 13). This content is what I always hope for when reading the Exponent. You are our informer, representative and newspaper that reports all Jewish causes whether they be positive or negative. No matter where, no matter who, no matter [how] politically correct, we depend upon you to report the true facts. In our family, we take care of our own. In the Exponent family, we depend upon you to report any injustices to Jews so that they never escape our site and minds.
Look what’s happening in the U.K. and France and the growth of anti-Semitism in the U.S. by politicians and other groups. I know it [seems it] can’t happen here, but it can.
