Are we sending migrant children back to their deaths? [Letter]

July 18, 2014

A visit to Auschwitz a few days ago really put the immigration crisis on our borders into perspective ("Carroll's revealing 'illeagle' graffiti," July 15).

I can only wonder if Europeans escaping the Holocaust in the 1940s had the means and proximity to come to the U.S. whether we would turn them away with such ease and how we would feel decades later looking back.

Its evident that despite Carroll County's numerous churches and "strong family values," the most basic human value, having a heart, is left out.

It's not a Republican or Democratic issue, it's a human empathy issue. I am embarrassed to call Carroll County my home.
