Two sides to crisis on the border

Regarding “Immigrants could be dangerous” (Letters, July 14): I thank the writer for feeling “empathy for those forced to flee their countries.” Yes, immigrants could be dangerous, just like anyone else. But they can also be a blessing for a great country. Yes, they are illegal, but in all fairness, their positive contributions must be acknowledged. The writer also states she will not open the door to a stranger; I understand her concerns. But what if she was the one knocking at the door, wouldn’t she want the owner of the house to open the door? The golden rule is very clear: Treat others as you would like to be treated.
