While the political world (and everyone with a Facebook page and a half-baked opinion) wrangled over how our country should treat Syrian refugees, it may have gone unnoticed that U.S. Customs agents in Los Angeles quietly saved our Republic this week by seizing and destroying hundreds of immigrant tamales. Heaven knows what would have happened if those delicious pork products had snuck by our border patrols.
For his part, Governor Wolf is sticking by his decision to welcome Syrian refugees with open arms. It bears mentioning that thanks to a 1980 federal law, he pretty much has no choice. Not that anyone will care, we are sure there will be no controversy surrounding this decision at all.
