Donald Trump is a racist, a xenophobe, and a white nationalist. For verification of those claims, just ask any liberal. Better still, read liberals the president’s views of illegal immigration and the need to deport illegal aliens who are in the U.S. despite have deportation orders.
That’s what Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform did with students at Georgetown University. He read them the following statement and then asked them to comment:
We are a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous. That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s why we’re going to keep focusing on threats to our security.
One respondent said, “O think that policy comes from a place of white American nationalism.” Said another: “Donald Trump has embraced this rhetoric of racism and xenophobia that’s not beneficial to our country at all.”
Only it wasn’t Donald Trump who articulated those ideas. It was Barack Obama in 2014. Watch:
Townhall’s Katie Pavlich provides another quote from 2014 that paints an even bleaker if distressingly familiar picture of the Obama’s immigration policy. The words are those of a Border Patrol agent.
It’s just chain-link cells so we have aliens sleeping all over the floor and they told us to probably expect another thousand over the next week, week and a half. We have these huge chain link cages, 20-feet tall with razor wire around them, this is inside a warehouse. They are probably 50 by 100 [feet] and there’s probably 10 or 11 of these big cages like that and so there’s probably 100-200 aliens in each cell, or cage and there’s just park benches right down the middle, two rows of park benches and then they give them these little rubber mats, a little foam pad to lay on. We don’t have enough blankets so they’re issuing out those foil blankets, it’s like a piece of tin foil and that’s all they get. There are so many people crammed. The smell is just horrendous, horrendous.
The quote demonstrates two things. First, the cage-like conditions in detention facilities that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasts the Trump administration for existed long before he took the oath of office. Second, the Border Patrol and ICE are not the heartless task masters Ocasio-Cortez insists they are. They are caring individuals doing a tough job.
Spread the word.
