I write in response to David Murray's letter, http://www.newsday.com/news/local/longisland/politics/ny-nybres243144609feb24,0,2135199.column?coll=ny-lipolitics-print, that excluding Bernadette Devlin from the US is "bone chilling" and somehow Nazi. As the articles noted in section (h) of today's issue notes, she is an open member of a communist front organization and has engaged in political violence. No Bolshevik ought to be admitted to the US without a tangible benefit accruing to these UnS because of that visit. Our law bans and has banned Nazis and Communists from admission to the US for good reason - these two groups are history's most effective thugs and murderers. My wife was threatened with immediate execution at gunpoint by Communist secret police and still routinely has to assert that she is not and has not been a member of a communist party when she enters the US. Given the relevant history, that strikes neither of us as being unreasonable. Mrs. Devlin was properly excludable before September 11 and remains so now. Jimmy Breslin might like her because of her ethnicity, but I have never unerstood hatred of the English to be sufficient justification for giving aid and comfort to mass murderers.
