It is a time of fear in America.  But fear is not an American value. 

To our great regret now, we turned away Jews who sought safety in America during World War II. Many hundreds died in concentration camps because we closed our borders. We interned over 100,000 Americans of Japanese descent following Pearl Harbor. All because of fear. Let us stand on the side of principle and our values rather than the illusion of a safety no government can ever truly guarantee.

The MS St. Louis was turned away by the US government in 1939.  Many Jews on this boat later died in the Holocaust.  While the situations are not perfectly analogous, there are many similarities.  The nations was gripped in fear of infiltration by those wanting to cause harm.  Outsiders were vilified as a threat.  Those fleeing persecution were seen as a source of possible harm. People were persecuted because of their ethnicity and religion.
