After the terrible events in Norway, we must remember that immigration restrictionists are not the enemy. We cannot let one bad apple distract us from the fact that this is really a movement of peace. We must be wary of any backlash, and look to see if we can understand the frustrations that drive someone to do this. We must continue with our openness that allows us listen to all voices and all treat all opinions with respect. We must not fall back into narrow thinking that allows us dismiss such beliefs as “extreme,” indeed we must redouble our efforts to reach out to those in the immigration restriction community with tolerance and respect for their views. We must not use the actions of one evil person turn us against the legitimate concerns of a large group of citizens.
