If only the president of the United States would stop his stereotyping of political foes.
Such as what he did on thisTwitter message: When people come into our Country illegally, we must IMMEDIATELY escort them back out without going through years of legal maneuvering. Our laws are the dumbest anywhere in the world. Republicans want Strong Borders and no Crime. Dems want Open Borders and are weak on Crime!
Hang on a second.
I happen to align with the Democratic Part. Do I “want Open Borders” and am I “weak on crime!”?
I beg your pardon, Mr. President.
I happen to support the president’s desire to invoke “extreme vetting” of immigrants. I also want to see border security increased, updated, modernized.
I do not favor building a wall along our southern border. I do not favor separating children from their parents. I do not favor Donald Trump’s desire to deport illegal immigrants immediately.
None of this seems to deter Donald John Trump from inflaming passions by his mischaracterization of his foes’ motives. It does fire up the base, which is the only audience that matters to the president.
As for his desire to toss all immigrants out without going through a legal process, I find that to be inherently un-American.
It’s the kind of rhetoric one hears from autocrats and, oh yeah, dictators.
