Letters to the Editor

Bursting at the seams

Jim Morin’s Aug. 20 cartoon suggested that the poem on the Statue of Liberty meant we should take in all in need across our borders. In 1886, when our population was less than 20 percent of what it is now, we might have been glad to take them.

The children from Central America would have been welcomed in our factories or our farms. There are millions of people in the world living in need. How many can we take?
