Anne Frank could have been a 77-year-old living in the USA today, if the United States didn't enforce draconian limitations and constantly changing rules on Jewish refugees seeking to flee Nazi Germany. Her father, Otto Frank, struggled to find safety for his two daughters in the United States, but the process was fruitless in the face of a bureaucracy bent on limiting the numbers of Jewish refugees in the United States. She ended up dying in a Nazi concentration camp at the age of 15, along with her mother and sister.

The recent Supreme Court decision allows President Trump's Muslim Ban to stand, except for those with a "bona fide relationship" in the United States. This may sound like a concession, but is poised to establish a system as horrific as the system that Otto Frank struggled to satisfy 75 years ago as he sought to save his children.
