Since Sen. Susan Collins seems to be struggling with the policy choices regarding the handling of refugees at the border, I thought I’d give her a hand.

Philosopher John Rawls used the concept of the “veil of ignorance” to test the moral fairness of a proposition: Imagine that you are going to draw straws where one out of X people will be subject to that policy – including, possibly, you. Is that policy one you would still choose?

So, does this help Sen. Collins choose the right path? Support S.B. 3036. #KeepFamiliesTogether.
