    Thank you, Duane, for putting a human face on the issue.

    I think we need to get back to seeing “people”, and not just “issues”…

    My cardiologist and her husband are both immigrants…both astoundingly good doctors and members of the community.
    I have always maintained that if I could take the harshest anti- immigrant folks into Juarez for an hour they would react with appropriate compassion and see the need for immigration reform.

    I hope I am estimating our collective hearts correctly…

    I hope that you are right…

  5. Michael says:

    Duane,

    I have my doubts…but thinking otherwise would make me unbearably cynical.
    I’m bearably cynical now… 🙂

    Dr. Duane, one on one, your view makes all the sense in the world, but on a national level? The sheer numbers of the world’s suffering make your desire to bring them here in obedience to our Lord… maybe i am shorting grace…. ?

    I simply think we need to see people, rather than issues…

  8. Em says:

    But isn’t the condition of the people the issue? Aren’t the two things one and the same?
    One or a few seems quite doable, but hundreds?
    Is triage a cop out? Or is it wisdom?
    Would you surprise your wife by calling her to inform her that you’d invited 50 people for dinner that nite?
    Maybe i’m logistically challenged…. ?

  9. Duane Arnold says:

    Em,

    As I said, it is a complex issue. My plea is simply that we do not blind ourselves to the real people who stand behind the issue.

  10. Em says:

    Yes, Dr. Duane, it is a sorrowful, complex condition. I could say, “come soon, Lord Jesus.” But that sounds shallow, i know.
    The question to as is, perhaps, are we doing the best we can with what we have?
    My condemnation without equivocation is aimed at everyone involved in recreational drug trafficking – from my neighbor to the guy in the corner office with his Beamer in the parking garage
