Olympic silver medalist Feyisa Lilesa cannot safely return to Ethiopia because of his brave protest against his government’s brutal oppression of the Oromo people. I have an Oromo friend who has been sending me firsthand reports of the government violence. It is sickening. If Lilesa wants to come to America, we should welcome him.
