Though Martin ended his post by saying that Donald Trump and the U.S. governors have it “wrong, wrong, wrong,” and that his hometown of Santa Fe, New Mexico, would welcome those refugees fleeing ISIS, his fight continued against angry commenters who slammed the author’s views…

Martin shot back, “History has demonstrated many times that immigrants revitalize a society, and create much more than they take. The sort of ‘they are just a bunch of lazy leeches’ sentiment you are expressing here was also directed at the Irish, the Italians, the Germans, the Polish, the Chinese, and many other immigrant groups in the past, all of whom over time have vastly enriched the culture of America. I have no doubt that the same will prove true of the Syrians.”
