James Kerian: Have Courage And Be Kind Towards Immigrants

My family was eating at the food court at the West Acres Mall in Fargo a few months ago when my daughter pointed towards a table behind me and said “I like her dress, it’s so pretty.” I turned around and saw that my daughter was pointing towards a little girl wearing a hijab (very

James Kerian: Our Immigration Policies Will Continue To Be Driven By Demographics

Following the recent attacks in Paris western nations are pretending, once again, to have a discussion about how many immigrants they should allow into their country and where they should allow those immigrants to come from.
