Enough is enough!
We must stop praising these politicians who trying to win the nomination of the Republican Party by threatening to evict 11 million aspiring Americans and potentially millions more American citizens whose parents are not yet citizens.
It is disgusting, racist and un-American.
By now you have already seen this video of the pompous asshat Donald Trump forcibly removing one of the nations most respected journalists from his press conference in an attempt to avoid answering questions regarding his immigration policies.
As if the actions of the Trump campaign were not enough, the story does not end there.
After being evicted from the press conference, an unidentified man tells Jorge Ramos (who is an American citizen) to “get out of my country.”
Donald Trump is leading the charge against immigrants, specifically latino families by accusing them of being drug dealers & rapists, “and some I presume are good people.” Other GOP wannabe’s are also following Trump’s lead by promoting this idea that we should rescind “birthright citizenship.” Some of these Presidential candidates are first generation Americans themselves.
I am appalled at what these people are saying about the millions of hard working people who have come to the United States in hope of finding a better life.
We need to fix our broken immigration system and never forget that we are a nation of immigrants.
We need more people like AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka to speak out against this divisive, racist, anti-immigrant rhetoric that flows from the political right. Just listen to how President Trumka calls the GOP out for their racist anti-immigrant messaging.
For millions of immigrants the Statue of Liberty was the first thing they saw as they immigrated to the United States. She was, and still is, the beacon of hope for the millions of aspiring Americans with her immortal words:
“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
To be anti-immigrant is to be anti-American.
