Congress: Reject Trump's racism
Reject Trump's racism and all the policies that stem from it. Pass a clean Dream Act now, repeal the Muslim Ban, and protect from deportation those who had been covered by the Temporary Protected Status program that Trump is determined to end.
Why is this important?
I am an immigrant, a former White House aide, and a Haitian-American.
Yesterday, in a moment of unbridled racism and during a meeting concerning changes in immigration policy, Trump referred to my homeland, El Salvador, and African nations as "shithole countries." Trump's recent comments just prove what we’ve already known for a long time: that the man who occupies the Oval Office is indeed a racist.
Trump has always been a racist. He started his business career as a racist. He started his political career as a racist. Now, in the White House, he is using his racism to drive his policy.
Will you stand with me and call on Congress to reject Trump's racism and all the policies that stem from it?
