Trump Attacks Immigrants Not Married to or Working for Him: ‘We’re Dealing with Animals’

Last updated on July 17th, 2023 at 07:18 pm

Even as speculation arises that Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, may have illegally entered the country, the former reality star is warning of the dangers of immigration. In at least one case, an immigrant has plagiarized a speech and lied about having a college degree. So there is that.

It appears the only immigrants Trump likes are the ones he imports either to marry or when they work for him.

The New York Daily News put the problem for Trump in simple English, so presumably the candidate and his wife can both understand it:

Melania Trump may have once been an undocumented worker who illegally made a living in this country — one of the very issues her immigrant-bashing husband has made a cornerstone of his hypocritical presidential campaign.

Speaking at a rally in Portland, Maine, Thursday, where a man was tossed out for asking about Trump’s tax-returns, the candidate claimed,

“We are letting people come in from terrorist nations that shouldn’t be allowed because you can’t vet them.”

“You have no idea who they are. This could be the great Trojan horse of all time.” He told his fellow fascists, “This is a practice that has to stop.”

Because there are Somali refugees in Maine, he of course went after the Somali’s with particular relish:

“We’ve just seen many, many crimes getting worse all the time, and as Maine knows — a major destination for Somali refugees — right, am I right? Well, they’re all talking about it. Maine. Somali refugees. We admit hundreds of thousands — you admit, into Maine, and to other places in the United States — hundreds of thousands of refugees.”

He also worried that Somali refugees were causing problems in Minnesota, a blue state that is economically prospering doing the opposite of what Trump says will work, claiming that the refugees are “having the unintended consequence of creating an enclave of immigrants with high unemployment that is both stressing the state’s… safety net and creating a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.”

If we are going to start getting rid of ethnic groups because some of them are radicalized into joining terrorist groups, we better start deporting white people while we’re at it.

Yet the crowd responded enthusiastically to Trump’s claim that,

“Hillary Clinton wants to have them come in by the hundreds of thousands. You’re going to have problems like you’ve never seen.”

It turns out, of course, that immigrants are by and large very law-abiding – more law abiding than natives, in fact – have had their immunizations (unlike many of those Republicans hating on them) and that there is a huge economic benefit to immigration.

We can rightfully laugh that Donald Trump married a person whom his own immigration reform would not have allowed into the country, and that she may be an undocumented worker herself, but there is nothing funny about the campaign of terror Trump is mounting against immigrants.

Trump sounded like Hitler railing against the Bolshevik Jewish menace:

“You see it happening. You read about it. You see it, and you can be smart, and you can be cunning and tough, or you can be very, very dumb and not want to see what’s going on, folks.”

This is a repeat of what Trump told a rally in Daytona Beach, Florida:

“We’ve got to stop being the stupid country run by very stupid people. We’ve got to stop. We’ve got to stop.”

We’ve already seen where cries like this get them: People like Trump, who make Bobby Jindal seem sane and reasonable by comparison; Trump has proven that voting for him is not a solution to the problem.

You cannot make up a bunch of fake problems motivated and fueled by racism and scapegoating, issue a slew of outrageously hateful and bigoted solutions to those problems, and expect to make things better, let alone great. Hate is never a viable solution.

The people who are acting like animals aren’t those fleeing war, persecution, and starvation, but those salivating over Trump’s hateful rhetoric against them.
