Today I’m going to be direct. Our new administration’s efforts to keep people from being able to come to America are horrendous.
Beyond the #MuslimBan, there has also been a change to the H-1B visa program which means thousands of wonderful, intelligent, and innovative people won’t be allowed in, and won’t be able to contribute their talents to a society that clearly needs them.
Our country, at least the one I was brought up in, was formed by immigrants, built on the hard work of refugees and established by people from all corners of the globe.
It’s a sad time we are living in, and I hope we continue to voice our deepest opinions about the way things are shaping up.
