In a meeting with lawmakers on immigration in the Oval Office. Donald Trump asked, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” He finally said out loud which few others have said directly when he suggested we should bring more people “from countries like Norway.”
His comments came after lawmakers floated the idea of restoring protections for people from Haiti, El Salvador, and some African countries after Trump unilaterally rescinded them, sending hundreds of thousands of people back to those countries beginning next year. There are predominantly white countries receiving the same sorts of protections which weren’t rescinded and the answer is now very clear. Their people look more like those from Norway.
Trump’s and Sessions immigration policy has always been about race and now there can be no doubt. We always knew what, “Make America Great Again” meant, and now he’s gone and made it official that he means, Make America White! While Trump is the poster boy, its long been part of the Republican Platform to oppose immigration from countries of color as they’ve been blocking comprehensive immigration reform for well over a decade. No doubt some elected officials will come forward and denounce the President’s words yet continue to adopt the policies supporting them.
Since he took office I’ve been wondering if I would ever find something this President did I could support. I can now say yes, he told the truth for all to see. May he be Impeached and deported to a shithole country and given the reception he deserves.
