Then they came for me
To the editor:
We of the Judeo-Christian faith need to express our outrage at the detainment by immigration officials of American Muslims — the son of Muhammad Ali (Muhammad Ali, Jr.) and his former wife, Khalilah Camacho-Ali. This incident reminded me of the poem by Martin Niemoller:
“...Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.” We need to be in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of all faiths for the future of our country.
