We are proud to share an excellent Letter to the Editor by Martha Ann Kirk on the treatment of Haitian refugees at the U.S.-Mexico border that was published in the San Antonio Express-News on 10/2/2021.
Haitian migrants move along a dirt road after crossing into the United States from Mexico last month. Readers continue to express their disgust with the treatment of Haitian asylum-seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border.
No more golden rule
Re: “6,000 Haitians removed from Del Rio,” Metro, Sept. 21:
If my ancestors had been deprived of education, ruled over by dictators and more recently been stricken by earthquake and storms, if I fled in desperation seeking a basic decent life, would I want to be met with horses and agents waving reins? We are failing the golden rule.
