Immigration Quotes From "President Trump"

Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips went to the campus of American University and asked students to react to several quotes “from President Trump” talking about the need for border control. Here are the quotes:

“Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress.”“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked.”“I voted numerous times… to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.”

As you would imagine, today’s college students were put off by all of this reactionary talk. One student called it “divisive.” Another called it “kind of hateful speech in general.” A third student called it a “rude” way to talk about illegal immigrants. A fourth student said, “there are racial biases kind of deep-embedded in there.” Other terms used to describe the quotes: Jingoist, unacceptable, dehumanizing
