Charity begins at home [Letter]

June 27, 2014

The administration tells us that the influx of illegal immigrants is an urgent humanitarian crisis, but it is not; rather it is an abject admission of failure to secure our borders ("U.S. considering new Md. sites for immigrant children," June 17).

Forcibly evicting homeless veterans from the squalor they're forced to call home is a humanitarian crisis. An administration that would frantically fall all over itself accommodating people entering this country illegally while ignoring those who honorably served and put their lives on the line in service of it has lost its moral compass and should be ashamed of itself.

This veteran is already ashamed of it. If we're going to solve the problems of the world, how about we start right here at home?
