What Donald Trump thinks about Immigrants

“I do business with the Mexican people, but you have people coming through the border that are from all over. And they’re bad. They’re really bad. You have people coming in, and I’m not just saying Mexicans, I’m talking about people that are from all over that are killers and rapists and they’re coming into this country.”

We are going back about 60 years. Donald Trump’s racist comments contradict the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965.This is disappointing to learn considering he is our President-elect. While many immigrants come to America believing it is a safe place from racism, many would be surprised to learn it is much different than Acts such as this depict. When your own President is disregarding this Act there is clearly a major disconnect between government and their policies.

  1. Is Trump unique, though? It seems like you might be able to draw a clearer thread to the history of immigration in America (that you are discussing in other posts). In what sense is Trump an inheritor of this history, rather than a break from it?


  2. What policies does Trump want to use to reform our immigration system? How has the election effected peoples views on immigrants? Overall your post where very short with little analysis done. I also don’t see how your theme and post connect and change over time. You should explain that more.
