Trump’s Hate Is Our Shame   (2018Jun28)

I don’t know where the stupidity comes from. People rail against immigration, now, after it has been a pride and a blessing (even a necessity) for the two-centuries-plus of our history. Yes, there are bad actors amongst the immigrants—but not nearly as many, proportionately, as we already have among us (i.e. you and me)—there’s even evidence that large immigrant influxes have lowered the crime rate of the neighborhoods they enter.

There’s really only one excuse—9/11 happened, we became professional cowards, and suddenly ‘securing the southern border’ became an issue of national security—where it never before had been, not since the War with Mexico (1848), anyway. Nobody sees the beauty and the horror of what’s happening—the United States, Mexico, and Canada have no military at our borders—we’ve never had, and we’ve never needed them—and now, conservative fear-mongering is trying to destroy that.

We are all neighbors. But the United States of America seems dead-set on becoming that asshole neighbor that nobody else can stand.
