“Are you really a racist, the young man, inquired ?”
While running some errands, I was confronted by a young Hispanic man who asked if I was a racist after he noticed my “Trump for President” sign. I asked him why he felt Trump supporters were racist.
He stated that Trump does not like Mexicans. This allowed me an opportunity to present some facts to this young fellow. I pointed out to him that Donald Trump is not against the Hispanic population. Donald Trump wants America to enforce our current immigration laws so that those who come to America must do so legally.
One of this young man’s concerns was that Mr. Trump was going to round up all the illegal aliens and deport them. I made the point that Donald Trump is not going to go out and round up millions of illegal immigrants, but he will require those here illegally to seek legal status the same way other legal immigrants have sought legal status. Donald Trump also wants to stop those who are using the system to bring drugs through our southern border, stop the criminal gangs that are overwhelming law enforcement, and remove those involved in criminal activity to prevent them from coming back to America after being deported multiple times.
I then began explaining that Donald Trump wants to stop those who are using the system to bring drugs through our southern border. He seeks to stop the criminal gangs that are overwhelming law enforcement, remove those involved in criminal activity to prevent them from coming back to America after being deported multiple times.
After tackling that topic, we strayed into the subject of how those who are here illegally have placed a significant burden on our government services including school, housing, medical, social services, court, and law enforcement. I explained to him that if an estimated 10-15 million illegal immigrants are here in America, doesn’t that place a burden on those government services? He agreed that it is the taxpayer who is paying for all of these services.
I then explained; there are many Americans who are struggling to obtain jobs, but must compete with those here illegally to get jobs. Those that can’t find jobs will often resort to crime to survive.
The conversation then strayed into the Bernie Sanders promises of “free college” for illegal immigrants. I explained that; Shouldn’t the families of veterans or other deserving Americans receive such services? Also, if one were to go to Mexico or any other country, they would not receive any services if they were there illegally. Isn’t it better to assist those here legally and those who are Americans? Our young fellow was catching on, and he agreed once again.
I also pointed out to him how there are those who hate America and use our open borders to come here.
As this young man listened, I said that most of my Hispanic friends publically or privately support Donald Trump. Those that support him publically feel it is not right those illegal immigrants are allowed to come to America illegally and receive the same benefits as those who have come here legally. Those friends that support Donald Trump privately know people who are here illegally and simply prefer not to have a confrontation. This is why they stay silent on the issue.
I explained to him that Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood, who used Planned Parenthood to “weed out” colored people. In her book, “Pivot of Civilization,” Sanger penned her thoughts regarding immigrants and the poor through her writings stating, “They are…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ’spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” Now, tell me who the real racist is?
In 1926, Sanger spoke at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silver Lake, New Jersey. It is also documented that Democrats organized the KKK.
I asked the young man if he knew that Hillary Clinton actually admired a racist? He did not. I went on to explain that last year, Hillary Clinton had accepted Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award. In her remarks, Hillary stated, “Now, I have to tell you that it was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision …”
Hillary praises the ideals of a known racist. So tell me again, “Who are the real racists?”
