Hi, Robert. First and foremost, thank you for your service. Like you, my father served in the Army, so I have great respect for those who have sacrificed for our country. In fact, I’m going to a funeral today for a recently identified soldier who gave his life in Korea in 1951. Also as in your case, my father’s military service gave our family opportunities we wouldn’t have otherwise had (he’s from a coal-mining family in Northeast Pennsylvania). As a veteran, I’m sure you’re aware of the countless immigrants and children of immigrants who have served in our military. My childhood was very multicultural because of this. And you’re right in your assessment of me. I am very fortunate to be both educated and comfortable. That might be due in part to the fact that I juggled up to 4 jobs at a time while going to school and had student loans until I was 32, but regardless, I don’t understand how that makes my perspective any less valid. While I hear what you’re saying, technology has changed the world we all live in, and has undoubtedly hurt some communities far more than others, but villainizing immigrants seems a massive distraction - not to mention, very predictable because we regrettably have a long history of that here (Know Nothings as one example).
