Donald Trump Jr. wrote an opinion piece expressing his racist views about immigrants. And even though they published it, The Des Moines Register also pointed out immediately that what Don Jr. had written was not true.
The family of murdered Iowa college girl Mollie Tibbetts has asked politicians and the media to stop using her killing to push a “racist, false narrative” about immigration.
“Mollie Tibbetts cousin: Stop using her death to push “racist, false narrative” on immigration.”
The GOP keeps attacking undocumented immigrants for being murderers, and claiming Democrats are responsible.
It’s true that maybe .001% of all murders in the United States are committed by people who have come into the United States without proper documentation. But it’s also true that many such people are aided and abetted by Republicans — and even work at Republican-owned businesses.
The family of Mollie Tibbetts is not happy that Donald Trump and other Republicans are politicizing her death. The 20-year-old Iowa college student was murdered by an undocumented immigrant from Mexico. He had been working in Iowa for the past four years at a farm owned by a prominent Iowa Republican.
When he’s not busy attacking Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton or Bob Mueller, Donald Trump loves to attack undocumented immigrants. He knows that whenever he talks about the immigration “problem” he scores political points with his base of supporters.
