Trump’s immigration policy unfair

Print Article

Trump is so fixated on immigrants, always claiming they’re rapists, murderers, MS-13 gang bangers and bringing drugs. How about the families who have had their loved ones killed by police? They’re never coming back. They state they investigate, but they’re never charged for corruption. There are good officers that are given a bad reputation because of those that are corrupted.

How long is the government going to have immigrant children separated from their mothers and fathers? You wish to blame them for bringing their children across the borders to a better life. You wish to call and state a lottery visa on immigrants. How about racial groups in our country that have killed many throughout the years? They’re not punished for their wrongdoing throughout history. There have been several immigrants deported, young and old, who have been killed after being deported. How is this any better than families being separated?

It’s unfair to speak of others’ misfortune in other countries. You praise Putin in Russia. How is he any different? This is why many Russians are here in the U.S., for a better life. So how come Mexican immigrants are treated differently?
