Fiorella is ashamed of the way Murietta treated the refugees from South America. It's unkind and un-Christian--and so many of the hopeful immigrants are children who have made this terrible journey unaccompanied. Fio understands that the United States cannot continue to absorb great floods of people, but it can certainly afford to treat them humanely while they are here.
And shame on the countries from which these people have fled. Their leaders revile us at the same time their people flock across our borders. Instead, these countries should emulate us. We are't perfect--witness Murietta--but we try.
