Haitain refugees: the US was right

Regarding the Opinion page article "US Loses Its Bearings on Refugees," Dec. 17: Many United States citizens do not favor accepting millions of so-called refugees into the US.

The US is absurd in its old desire to be everything to everyone. It needs to take care of business here. E. Symmonds, Delores, Colo.
