Leftist reporter pushes bigotry farce
That tripe is what you’d be fed if you read the hemorrhaging subscriptions Arizona Republic. A recent column in the one-sided Viewpoints section titled, “There’s no other way to explain Trump’s immigration policy. It’s just bigotry,” shamelessly attempts to make the fallacious case. This is the opening salvo:
“It was never about protecting the border, rule of law or the U.S. economy. And it was never about “illegal” immigration, for that matter.
Trump’s anti-immigrant bigotry was always just anti-immigrant bigotry.
There’s no other way to explain the Trump administration’s latest onslaught against foreigners of all kinds, regardless of their potential economic contributions, our own international commitments or any given immigrant’s propensity to follow the law. Trump’s rhetoric may focus on “illegals,” but recent data releases suggest this administration has been blocking off every available avenue for legal immigration, too.”
Truth is not a concern for either the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating newspaper or the agenda-driven columnist who conveniently omits the fact that Trump‘s own mother was an immigrant. The writer is merely identified by name and her twitter account, where the dwindling readership is invited to follow her. There is no mention of the fact that Catherine Rampell is an editorialist for the radically left Washington Post. She was previously employed by the ideological counterpart New York Times. Neither newspaper endorses Republicans for president, although the Times made an exception 64 years ago when it endorsed Dwight Eisenhower.
American workers do not need competition from imported workers. Our economy is strong based on the fact that record setting employment has been attained under the Trump administration. The unemployment rate holding steady at 3.5% is the lowest it has been since 1969 — over 50 years ago. All Americans are benefiting from the labor market’s continued improvement. We are witnessing historically low unemployment rates for Black and Hispanic Americans, celebrated by President Trump, yet he is routinely described by his left-wing detractors as a “racist.”
Rampell’s assertion regarding “Immigrants propensity to follow the law,” cannot go unchallenged. Since the leftist media uses the words “migrant, undocumented and immigrant” interchangeably to describe illegal aliens — unwilling to make the distinction for actual lawful immigrants — it’s important to note that while legal immigrants may have a lower crime rate, crimes committed by illegals is, and has been, disproportionately higher. The border state of Arizona stands as an example. Following their initial crime entering the U.S. in violation of the law, compounded by using counterfeit or trafficked/stolen ID to gain employment, rent an apartment, access benefits or enroll their kids in school, other crimes, including felonies, become standard operating procedure. America is a country to be used, not revered.
Leftist myopia is the problem. It is not President Donald Trump.
