What Can We Learn from the Boston Bombings?

The New York Times has a poignant editorial about immigrant children in today’s issue.

“Taking in what Emma Lazarus called the ‘wretched refuse’, including asylum seekers like the Tsarnaev brothers, without providing a scaffold of support undermines the promise of America.” write Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco and Carola Suárez-Orozco in “Immigrant Kids, Adrift” (read it all here).

“The alleged involvement of two ethnic Chechen brothers in the deadly attack at the Boston Marathon last week should prompt Americans to reflect on whether we do an adequate job assimilating immigrants who arrive in the United States as children or teenagers,” the authors assert.

This is something that Muslim-Americans can agree on. Even though we’re not all mosque-centric, as immigrants and the children of immigrants, we must to a better job of acculturating our young people. We know — often first hand — the challenges they face “fitting in” to a new home.
