[Ed. – How do liberals hate Trump? Let us count the ways. If their argument that a border wall is immoral falls apart when it is pointed out that they approved such a wall in the past, they revert to the ‘Trump is Hitler’ theme.]
Thursday MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) said President Donald Trump wanted to stop legal immigration into America from all “folk of color.”
This has never been about a wall. He actually could have gotten funding a couple of years ago or a year ago for a wall. It was part of a deal that was proposed. Not all of us agreed with that deal and he turned it down because his ultimate goal is, as you said, to make America pure in the sense of not having immigrants, not having folks of color here and shutting down every form of legal immigration. All to throw a bone to those people. And the only thing I can hope is that the people he’s throwing the bone to are actually a minority of people. What’s interesting is if you look at where immigration fared in the 2018 elections, we actually found people turning away from this view—that it was too racist, too bigoted, too xenophobic.
