The fear of immigrats is the absence of courage?
So here we are, a room full of freedom lovers, where it is safe to cheer for freedom and to denounce repression I think of the amazing courage that it takes to flee oppression, to leave behind everything that is familiar, and to chance the hostility of a completely alien culture in order to find freedom, opportunity, and a better life. When I think of that courage, I am greatly emboldened. How much easier it is to speak to a friendly audience, than to risk one's life in a rickety boat facing storms, pirates, and sharks. Or to risk one's life by crawling under fences

If breaking the law makes one a criminal, then the Founding Fathers were all criminals. But no one still believes that today
Courage is to welcome competition. Fear is to shut out competition. Courage is to embrace the newcomer. Fear is to expel the newcomer. Courage is to champion liberty. Fear is to strangle liberty.
