Thank you, Mr. Trump

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUNDAY OPINION -

The July 18 Metro ar­ti­cle “Afghan girls ar­rive in time for ro­bot meet” re­ported that an Afghan girls’ ro­bot­ics team had ar­rived in the United States to par­tic­i­pate in a ro­bot­ics com­pe­ti­tion. The girls’ ef­forts to get visas to en­ter the coun­try had been met with re­jec­tion by the State De­part­ment un­til Pres­i­dent Trump in­ter­vened on their be­half, which was men­tioned al­most in pass­ing in para­graph three. I am no fan of Mr. Trump. I be­lieve the nu­mer­ous crit­i­cisms of his poli­cies and be­hav­ior are jus­ti­fied and nec­es­sary. But I also be­lieve that his ac­tion in this case de­serves some praise. He en­abled these young women to ful­fill a dream. The pres­i­dent did the right thing this time. We should rec­og­nize him for that. Ross Shaver, Lau­rel
