    In 2001, after massive earthquakes killed more than 1,000 people and displaced more than 1 million in El Salvador, the United States made room for people who had come here illegally fleeing the catastrophe. It was an act of generosity taken by President George W. Bush under a federal program known as temporary protected status.

    As rumors of Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens’ sex scandal spread through the Capitol before Wednesday’s State of the State speech, it must have been difficult for Missouri legislators to muster enthusiasm, knowing the hypocrite who would stand before them.
