“Democrats are the problem. They don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13.” (Donald Trump)
Dear President Trump:
In your latest statements in reaction to the child detention issue,you stated that Democrats cause rampant crime and illegal immigration to occur because they don’t care about this issue. How insulting this statement means to me as a native born, white male and former reading teacher/professor who dedicated his life to teaching high standards of citizenship and moral behavior to his culturally diverse classes for almost thirty years.
As an informed Democratic voter who studies the issues intently, these thoughtlessly disparaging statements also imply that I am anti-American if I reject your strict enforcement of border laws for illegals and their children. Your daily temper tantrums and blame game if you don’t get your way only invites my hardened opposition and more intense questioning of your strict immigration policies. Very simply, my multiculturalistic attitude cannot be ended by authoritative decree.
Let us “turn the tables”a bit. Picture Little Barron crying “Daddy, Daddy” lying in a hot cage far away from the comfort of home as overzealous soldiers determinedly enforce the law to keep outsiders out of their country. Or imagine Ivanka screaming as her children are torn from her arms to await an unknown fate in a hostile land. Step into a war torn disaster zone where martial law threatens everyone to stay off city streets or risk being shot. Do these situations make you proud of country?
Heartless treatment of foreigners along our borders does not make “America Great ”, as you so desire. Understand that talking tough about mass deportation and placing children in cages to ignite your political base sends the wrong moral message. Ardent Democrats like me are not the enemy as well, considering our two party system invites lawful compromise through freedom of discussion. When you calm down, look around and ponder a way to be a President for “all” people in our country.
