As I See It

Nadia Schroeder: Dear Gov. Sam Brownback, let me tell you about Syrian refugees

Nadia Schroeder, an Arabic lecturer at the University of Kansas who prior to 2011 lived in Damascus, Syria, writes: Perhaps if you knew — if we knew — better who Syrians are, who the refugees are, as we know our friends, colleagues, classmates, then Kansas might not only open her doors to Syrians but might even realize that she has to gain from their coming.
