Letter to NYT: We can help the Europeans with migrants by airlifting them to the US

To the Editor:

Re “Europe’s Duty on Migrants” (editorial, April 21): While it may be convenient to place responsibility for migrants created by the Arab Spring and North African political instability on the European Union, it shirks a responsibility that should also be borne by more distant countries. A migrant airlift could decompress the disaster facing a few Mediterranean countries overwhelmed by refugees seeking their shores.

America and other countries do not deserve a pass as your editorial spells out “Europe’s Duty” to the rushing tide of refugees.
