    For years, we have been hearing about how conservatives are not against LEGAL immigration, just ILLEGAL immigration. There is no one more LEGAL than an immigrant newly sworn in as a new citizen. And now Trump is announcing more roadblocks to obstruct those here LEGALLY in completing their transition to full citizenship.

    Trump has given us many indications that this Orwellian “newspeak” about respect for LEGAL immigration was never true. What they really meant was that WHITE European immigrants like those from “Normay” [sic] or eastern Europeans where Trump imports his wives from, were always welcome, but it was really all about blocking brown-skinned immigration.

    Trump disparages those in “sh**hole countries” (specifically identified as countries with brown-skinned people such as Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Haiti and “Africa” [as if Africa was either monolithic or a country instead of a continent]), and terminates TPS (Temporary Protected Status) for refugees from countries with brown skin, and targets employer who hire undocumented workers with brown skin.

    But Trump does nothing of the sort for employers who hire white Europeans who overstay temporary student or tourist visas and then work illegally, such as Slovenian models who pose nude for cash despite NON-WORK visa status. Trump thus confirms that, no, it is not about the status, it is about the skin color.

    Now, with his newly-announced standards making LEGAL immigration more difficult for all but the few richest elites, Trump has shed even the pretense about the issue being legal immigration vs illegal immigration. Trump welcomes white Europeans, but is waging war against brown-skin immigration.

    It is not about the status, it is about the skin color.

    And if you’re an American citizen and brown enough, you’re valid ID just might not be enough.

    Reagan brought on “newspeak” calling the MX (Missile eXpensive) the “peacekeeper”. Bonespurs IS more dangerous to America than Big Brother, a very sick virus.

    Send Trump back to where he came from. Merkel will turn him from a rooster to a hen before he can utter one foul tweet.

    I’m sure the white employers who were exploiting those undocumented immigrants will be rounded-up and prosecuted any day now.

    Sad to say I’m glad my parents aren’t around to see what America is being forced to endure with this administration.

    A university study of the attitude of O.W.M. was released last month. It stated that this group was strongly pro-immigration. Provided the immigrants agreed to forget their previous culture, were Christian and were white."

    The USA is a paradise for rich rip off artists, liars, con artists and white nationalists under right wing rule.

    While waiting for a table with some friends, I overheard a conversation in a restaurant lounge a few nights ago. Two individuals at the bar were discussing the “Heal and Console” trip to El Paso and the now infamous photograph of the orphaned child with Mr. and Mrs. Trump. One gentleman remarked that, to be fair, that picture did make Mr. Trump appear a bit narcissistic. His companion angrily retorted, “What? Are you saying our President is a f#####g pansy?” I had a sudden violent ‘coughing’ attack.

    Glad to see that the Vulcan in the middle of the back row will no longer be considered an alien.

    The only thing preventing ICE from being jackbooted thugs is that jackboots aren’t part of their uniform.
