The More Racist Donald Trump Gets, the Higher He Rises in the Polls

(ANTIMEDIA) When Donald Trump declared his candidacy for president on the Republican party ticket, he made a statement that has had wide-ranging repercussions:

“When Mexico, meaning the Mexican government, sends its people…They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Rather than apologize for these comments, he refused to back down, even after major corporations canceled their relationships with him or his products.

When a woman was gunned down by an illegal immigrant on a San Francisco pier on July 1, Donald Trump latched onto this event as evidence of the soundness of his previous comments. As CNN reported, he claimed that

“This senseless and totally preventable act of violence committed by an illegal immigrant is yet another example of why we must secure our border immediately…This is an absolutely disgraceful situation and I am the only one that can fix it. Nobody else has the guts to even talk about it. That won’t happen if I become President.”

This weekend, Donald Trump took his presidential road show to Phoenix, Arizona. In a speech to a crowd of 4,000 cheering supporters, he repeated what he said before, albeit with more appropriate language. According to Politico, Trump said,

“I love the Mexican people … I respect Mexico … but the problem we have is that their leaders are much sharper, smarter and more cunning than our leaders, and they’re killing us at the border…They’re taking our jobs. They’re taking our manufacturing jobs. They’re taking our money. They’re killing us.”

At one point, Trump even brought a man up to the podium to speak about how his son was “violently” killed by an illegal immigrant.

The common theme for Donald Trump is that illegal immigrants are criminals. Despite some anecdotal cases of criminality within the illegal immigrant community, the facts are decidedly against what Donald Trump claims.

On October 2013, the Pew Research Center published its work on immigrants and crime. As the chart below shows, first generation immigrants have a lower crime rate than native-born Americans.

On July 10, 2015, The Economist weighed in on the link between immigrants and crime. What it found was similar to what the Pew Center previously discovered. The Economist reported that

“Mr. Trump has claimed that ‘[w]hen Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.’ Yet the evidence suggests that the people America has been taking in are truly and remarkably civil. If not the best, they’re awfully good. Undocumented killers such as Mr Sanchez [the man who killed the woman on San Francisco’s pier] may inflame the xenophobic imagination, but America’s violent criminals are much more likely to be home-grown than imported.”

Trumps claims about “illegal immigrants” hurting the U.S. economy are false as well. According to in-depth research done by the Manhattan Institute, immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, act as a boost to the nation’s economy.

“The most important way immigrants benefit the U.S. economy, according to academic literature, is their possession of different skills and job preferences from those displayed by native-born Americans, thereby making the latter more productive. As a result, immigrants complement rather than substitute for native-born workers, with capital moving accordingly to maximize available labor. Although immigrants will no doubt be substitutes for some primarily low-skill workers (many themselves immigrants), the negative effects experienced by such workers are far smaller than the positive effects enjoyed by everyone else. In short, the economy as a whole gains, with considerably more winners than losers.”

The most important point to take from all of this is that Donald Trump is a fear-mongering demagogue. He uses fear to whip up an anti-immigrant frenzy to gain ground in the polls, a strategy that seems to be working. One poll suggests that he is leading the crowded Republican field of presidential nominees while another poll shows Trump in a tie for first place with Jeb Bush.

This is nothing new for opportunistic megalomaniacs who seek to win elections at any cost. In 1994, California’s Republican governor Pete Wilson successfully used an anti-illegal immigration proposition (Prop. 187) to propagate support for his re-election campaign, which kept him in office. The proposition passed with 59% support but was later found unconstitutional—as most laws like these are. More recently, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used fear of Israeli-Arab voters to convince the Jewish voters in Israel to turnout and vote for his Likud party in the March, 2015 parliamentary elections. His party won the most seats in parliament and he once again became prime minister of a right wing coalition government.

This is not to suggest that Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination for president. Given his lack of political experience, it is highly likely that Trump is just the flavor of the month in the crowded Republican field. As more Republican voters begin to pay attention to the nomination process, he will likely fall to other more experienced, less hate-mongering candidates in the polls.

  7. Trump also said that he supports legal immigrants. “They flow in like water, and I love legal immigration. I love it,” he said. “We should make it easier, and faster.”

    I usually like the articles on this site… but this one is clearly bent on character assassination and cherry picking from questionable sources.

  9. No it does not. But what Trump said is racist. When you lump Mexicans together and not mention ILLEGAL immigration in your initila speech, then yes he is a racist. Here is the full quote from the speech:

    "When do we beat Mexico at the border? They're laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. But they're killing us economically.

    The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems.

    (APPLAUSE)

    Thank you. It's true, and these are the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

    Where does he once use the term ILLEGAL immigration in his initial speech.

    Find me the word ILLEGAL in that quote. This is what started the whole issue. That quite is from his declaration speech.

  15. No. He actually said the Mexican people. He kept referring to undocumented people as "the Mexican people." And he continues to use that term. He recently said, "I love the Mexican people." He is stereotyping immigrants. He's also doing it for votes.

  16. There is still no correlation because since the passage of NAFTA illegal immigration into the US doubled. But the crime rate did not. So, if more people are coming into this country illegally by your logic, we should see an uptick in crime. That's not happening.

  18. We had an upsurge of illegal immigration into the US after the passage of NAFTA (which is where your anger should be directed at–the corporations and politicians who shipped your jobs overseas for lower wage labor). But we are not seeing an uptick in crime. Here is the evidence. "An influx of highly subsidized corn flooding the Mexican market has displaced millions of rural farmers, According to McClatchy Newspapers. Prior to the implementation of NAFTA, Mexican officials claimed that factory JOBSwould fill the void left by disappearing work on family farms.

    Mexican officials had promised that NAFTA would result in the “export of goods, not people.” That, however, has turned out to be far from reality.

    Since NAFTA was signed into law, illegal immigrants in the U.S. has increased to 12 million today from 3.9 million in 1993, Accounting for an overall increase of over 300 percent. According to the Pew Hispanic Center, 57 percent of those entering the country illegally are from Mexico." http://economyincrisis.org/content/illegal-immigration-and-nafta.

  22. White people are more likely to commit crimes than immigrant people. White juveniles are more likely to exhibit anti-social behavior than their immigrant counterparts. White people are more likely to end up in jail than immigrants. The question I pose: Why the whites the most violent people? Look at those statistics. Whites commit more crimes or end up in jail. What is wrong with the whites in America? Look at Dylan Roof. Why can't they be more like us law abiding people whose national origins originate from outside the US?

  23. "Those displaced workers are largely the result of U.S. corn exports to Mexico. Heavily subsidized American Agribusiness not only put hundreds of thousands of American family farms out of BUSINESS, but also dumped billions of dollars worth of American agricultural products into the Mexican market, putting millions of peasant farmers out of business.

    Between 1994 and 2001, the flood of cheap, subsidized American corn caused the price of the crop to fall 70 percent in Mexico. The drop in prices caused millions of farm jobs to disappear, with the numbers falling from 8.1 million in 1993 to 6.8 million in 2002.

    Those out-of-work farmers make up the bulk of the illegal immigrants entering the U.S. each year. Unable to compete with their highly subsidized American competitors – $10 billion in 2000 alone – rural Mexican farmers have increasingly sought employment in the U.S."

    I love the White people. I respect the Whites. Some of my friends are White. But the problem we have is that their people are more lazy, criminal and more cunning than my people, and they’re killing my people at the border.

  25. I live in Florida, shame north FLA. Skynard country .It was paradise in the woods on the ocean growing up. They come inbto do work at 10 cents and work for nothing, yet they drive the nicest cars and so on.The people think they are all Mexicans well few of them are from Mexico. Most of the migrate workers are from Guatemala , and the surrounding countries all South Americans. .I was mad at them but why most of them are just looking for a better life away from gangs and cartel owned cities. It is the rich WHITE people that own the jobs here they own all fern farms and citrus. My girl worked at Puckett s for 10 years they paid her shit as she ran the business. Puckett s is one of many big rich families that own most of the land they hate each other showing their greedy ways.I now see they are the true problem they hire them at pennies and the law does not do their job .Call the law and see what happens nothing !!! I do not think we can change anything now .The rich white folks that are few .I am a white man no work for me it is old rich money if you are white and rich your parents were rich. I have not seen many whites move up the latter.Back to the families that give the aliens work like the Puckett family on Stone Rd. 200 illegal aliens hard at work outside inside 5 woman white and born an raised here do any work that they can claim that they do have work for whitey ,5 woman inside doing secretary work.I don't know who would you blame. This is no longer the place I knew so thank the hippie , ……… loving assholes that have turned north Florida into shit and the more the New Yorkers that come every year they are worse than anyone.So bend over and spread um wide cause we are fucked anyway you look at it.I have to pay child support for my last of 3 children $ o sadly enough for me I will be in jail cause some over paid asshole in a robe has no idea what a white mans life has become in America.

  27. Can't believe all the racist trump supporters on here complaining about the media's portrayal of their unfiltered ginger voicebox. Y'all realise Trump is a media tycoon, and he's been manipulating public opinion for decades right?

    Crime is a problem. Immigration is not. Many of the laws in the US are so badly writen (either by design or accident) that they create criminas where there shouldn't be any. The immigration process is one of these (along with the tax code, drug laws, three strikes, etc..).

    You're all so concerned about dirty Mexicans coming here raping and pillaging, but immigrant don't kill people, guns kill people. And where immigrants have settled in large numbers, the rates of gun crime have fallen. http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/07/24/you-cant-blame-immigrants-for-gun-violence/

    As for the case of the man who killed the woman in San Francisco, that could very well be a case of accidental discharge. He claims to have found the service weapon of a federal agent (stolen while he was in prison by the way, so he definitely found it) wrapped in a t-shirt at the pier and it went off. He didn't even realise he had killed somebody. And what was he serving time in a federal prison for? Illegally entering the country. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/07/08/san-francisco-murder-case-that-sparked-sanctuary-city-debate-takes-unexpected-turn/

    But it's easy to blame other races, call them stupid or evil, point to their own countries terrible living standards and say, "any intelligent race of people would have sorted out that situation". But then, take a look at America's record on poverty, corruption and crime. There are more people incarcerated per capita in the US than Mexico by a looong way, poverty in the US is the scond worst of any western nation, only mexico is worse. http://sitemaker.umich.edu/salas.356/usa_vs._world

    Donald Trump labels the illegal immigrants as "not Mexico's best people", of course that depends on your definition. Clearly he means people like him: wealthy, "educated" (supposedly), intelligent (Ok, maybe not like trump, but you get the picture). The fact is he means people who can afford to come here legally, and are not from a demographic that will be outright refused at the border. I don't know about y'all hard working blue collar types, but listening to a rich pick who did nothing but bluster and bumble his way through one bankruptcy after another, telling me that people who are determined and focused enough to physically extract themselves from desperate poverty, crime, state corruption and social repression to walk, swim, tunnel and fly over our border into an unknown future for which they will work harder than any american to achieve a better life aren't the best mexico has to offer is like a slap in the face of hard working people the world over.

    And yet, you just go along with it, because he's "saying what we can't". Couldn't BE MORE racist.

  28. Naji Dahi ….. I would hope you would have greater assets available to you, to find such data if it exists, however, I have seen a lot of reports of people being deported MULTIPLE times after being arrested AGAIN AND AGAIN for crimes. …. I am fully supportive of LEGAL immigration, and without restrictions on numbers, and think that the U.S. should be able to deal with people who want to come here at LEAST as efficiently as the U.N. manages refugees.

  29. What is with this anti-white bullshit. Where are your facts for this. You know I worked for the Air Force dealing with immigration and illegal activity in South America and Mexico. Do you know how many kilograms of narcotics are illegally transported and captured by U.S. assets? I bet you have no idea but yet you aren't addressing that issue or the fact that in Mexico there are huge gang wars over drugs. Oh but white people must be the problem, right? Do you know how many innocent people are killed in Mexico for demonstration purposes. Did you know Mexico doesn't only smuggle in Mexican immigrants? I know you don't. What an ignorant fuck, go spread your bullshit somewhere else because it's easily identifiable. Calling out illegal immigration and crime is one thing, but blaming a race of people for Americans identifying a REAL problem is indeed racist. I'm not racist at all but I've looked at the crime rates in the U.S. and Mexico first hand in the military from illegal immigrants and I have to say, it's a big fucking problem.

  32. Illegal immigration includes a giant sum of nationalities, whereas Mexico referenced as a whole is accurate and is not racist. Mexico doesn't even have control of itself, it's mainly corrupted and ran by drug lords who have the government wrapped around their finger. Mexico is allowing illegal immigration to happen, which also Mexico happens to be run by Mexicans by the way. Population percentage and government figures show predominately Mexicans on top of the country being called "Mexico" so what else do you call them. Donald Trump isn't saying Hispanic people because Hispanic people are all over the world, instead he is calling charge towards the country of Mexico because they are allowing the issue to persist and no do anything about it themselves. ISIS members are even crossing the border to commit crime in the U.S. because Mexico does nothing to secure the border or itself, therefore Mexico is a problem. When the crime from Mexico crosses into the U.S., it is indeed Mexico bringing it, not illegal immigrants.

  35. You should change your title to the Anti-America! This article is completely misleading. The need to be politically correct is killing freedom at the behest of our for-profit prison system, the world banking cartels that profit from both sides of fabricated conflict and the illegitimate issues that progressives are using to systemically dismantle the constitution so corporations can enslave you and bring an end to Christianity.

    We are talking about the problems in America right now. Problems like Dylan Roof shooting up a church and assassinating in cold blood 9 African-American worshippers while in church.

    We are not talking about the problems in Mexico right now. And that is not the focus of this article. But as this article points out, the immigrants coming into this country as a whole are a law abiding people compared to the White people. It's that simple.

    The whites need to fix their own problems. Problems like the 9 churches throughout the South that were set ablaze by arsonists.

  41. Here's my opinion yes illegal immigrants are just that illegal and breaking the law they should be deported. But them working our jobs is not our main problem with just crime or life as we know it . We don't need to close our borders up. We should open them let everyone in to have tourism and bring jobs here stop importing everything and start exporting and making everything in America again. When our country was proud to make great quality here and we only bought American we had the best economy basicly no job shortages and no need for welfare programs period. We had trades back then and didn't have colleges that ripped people off to study something they may never use and we didn't have a national debt and people paid cash for everything instead of charging everything and devalueing ourselves.

  42. He also says he isn't talking just about Mexicans he talks about all illegal immigrants. There's a difference. And guns dont kill people . People kill people take away guns and people will poison you stab you beat you or do anything that will take your life . All it takes is a motive. Now if you support guns being taken away you won't solve anything only empower the people who have guns as well even after you make it law like the government who wants to enslave you and the criminals who will kill you with or without a gun.

  45. Actually by the way its about illegal immigrants not just immigrants . And there's been more violence than just a white boy killing people in America and Mexico crime is everywhere. Did you also see where the black panthers have declared war on all white people before that supposed shooting that never occurred also where six Mexican gangs also all illegal immigrants waged war on all police in America and have killed hundreds of our police civilians for just wearing a badge and trying to protect the people . We have at least 10 officers every week killed at our borders by illegal drug cartels. Every culture and every race has people who are violent criminals and unlaw abiding . Your not perfect we aren't either. But if you point one finger there's four fingers pointing back at you. The problem is the governments that fund them to make the laws and provide the means to break them. How does all the illegal products get into the country on the streets that are government assets in the first place .

  47. Excuse me! Excuse me!! Where is your proof that Dylan Roof is a false flag? If Dylan Roof is a false flag then the 30 million who are undocumented here were brought here through a multinational conspiracy of bankers and multinational corporations hungry for cheap labor. You are a nut.

    And excuse West Savage. What an appropriate last name by the way. The United States has the most people in jails than in any other country in the world. And the white people are a majority here.

    Get your facts straight pal! Stop making excuses for punk kids like Dylan Roof. He posted his racism on Facebook. And he posted pictures of himself burning an American flag. He is not protesting that he is innocent.

And I thought I made it clear that some of my friends are white! I don't hate the white people. But some of their people–not all– are violent and lazy. They don't want to work hard. Their people are not civilized. They did not create a religion like other people's.

    But they are a great people. They have great leaders!!

  49. Naji, I am FAR from a defender of T-rump,Iam just pointing out that there are a lot of stats that we DON'T have……. From the Washington Post: "On CNN on Wednesday night, he (Trump) offered a defense to anchor Don Lemon.

    “If you look at the statistics, of people coming … I didn’t say about Mexico, I say the illegal immigrants —if you look at the statistics on rape, on crime, on everything, coming in illegally to the country, they’re mind-boggling,” he told Lemon."

    Now, on the one hand I don't know what stats T-rump is citing (I doubt he knows them either), BUT on the other hand , he is talking about ILLEGAL Immigrants, and while I have heard him bounce around on what he calls them, he does (try to) clarify that HE is talking about the problem with ILLEGAL immigrants, ones that have been deported (many of them multiple times) and still come back and commit crimes.

    Ezequiel Aguilar This article is about Trump being racist for comments he made in context of the illegal immigration and amnesty debate. It goes on to try to make the case that he is against all mexicans when he clearly states himself… several times that he doesn't dislike mexicans… he dislikes illegal crime committing pieces of shit that get a free pass from the US government in some attempt to be worldly and super PC.

    If you're here illegally, you have already committed your first crime. Furthermore, when taken in context… he does not lump all immigrants into the same category. To deny that immigrants commit crimes is ridiculous, and to assume that ILLEGALS commit no crimes is… well… laughable.

    Don't get it twisted, I don't think Trump should be running everything… but I also don't think that people should go around mis-characterizing what someone has said for views and to stir the pot.

  54. "Some" people from every race are violent and lazy. And how are white people not civilized? You're throwing out generalizations based on personal bias. I have all of the incarceration rates which don't include illegal immigrants, and it still show's white people to have the lowest incarceration rates (rate being number x out of 100,000). I don't know why you're speaking out of your asshole but we all see that you're full of it. Also, what do you mean by "They did not create a religion like other people's"? That makes no sense to me. The chart in the article shows no racial or ethnic denomination, therefore any fact we try and pull out of it can be negligible except as a generalization of all immigrants of all races in the U.S. and so forth. Your logic and arguments and opinions are flawed without a doubt. We are here for the United States' issues, and illegal immigration is not a race issue but it just so happens that the country below us is Mexico which happens to have high crime rates and poverty levels. By that I mean the U.S. is the U.S., to include all races living in it. Mexico has the largest influx of illegal immigrants coming from it's borders. Why is this a race issue to you when the U.S. is comprised of multiracial people? I mean, doesn't it scare you to know a country with a high per capita of crime is trying to come into the U.S.? It's not about race, its about our well-being (our being everyone in the United States).

  55. Well look at your filthy mouth. You just made my point about being uncivilized. You don't make any sense because you are not addressing the studies mentioned in the article. You are ignoring them. The fact remains that the majority of people in this country are white. And many of them do drugs. But because of racial profiling many more African-Americans are targeted for non-violent drug offenses than the Whites are. It's a reality of white privilege that people like yourself enjoy in this country. Law enforcement enables you people. But it does;t enable people of color. And again, you want to change the subject. We are not talking about Mexico. We are talking about immigrants coming into this country.

  56. Donald Trump for Peesident! He owns himself and will not be swayed by donors! This country is being sold out! I don't see a better way to attempt to dig out but exposing the truth about the bullshit going on in government today. Go Donald!

  57. Liberty For Joe I was very specific in what I said. In his first declaration for the presidency he made no mention of Illegals. He just took a shot at immigrants from Mexico. The original text is linked to in the article, please read it. The article is based on that original text. Go read before you accuse me of shenaningans. The man is a racist and he also said that the US should invade Mexico. That came after the article got published. Again go read it.

  58. @Naji Dahi Your characterizations hardly scream Racism as much as it proves you wish to engage in political football. Most of your article consisted of link-backs and commentary on commentary…. just saying… there are better things and more honest ways to cover the subject without aiding the growing social justice warrior crowd in their cries of racism.

    It would have been tolerable had at least even tried to be objective… but it seem'd like you wrote the headline and then found information to fit your narrative. This reads like so many pieces that IMO are the exact thing the ANTI-MEDIA strives to distance themselves from. You seem to have completely glazed over the very real things he said which were positive in addition to his track record on the matter.

    I am by no means advocating Trump here as much as trying to hold a respected publication responsible for clearly biased MSM style useless breeder style articles. I look to this publication for information I didn't know, not information parroted incessantly by the 4th Branch of Government.

    You cite as proof of your claims that some other guy in 94 ran a campaign based on racist unconstitutional immigration policy and oh yeah Benjamin Netanyahu did too. To me, this is where most of your resources are cited and yet it has nothing to do with the heart of the cherry picked article that precedes it. Not only were you not objective but you missed the bigger story right in front of your face all to jump on the Fuck Trump Bandwagon, perhaps for personal reasons… who knows.

    Anyway… If I was your editor, I'd remind you of your responsibility to your readers and encourage you to pursue the bigger story "How immigration policy drives the mass." Or perhaps "Is Donald Trump using an age old tactic?" If you're going to use recycled garbage at least bring a fresh perspective to the table, rather than parroting the observations of politico, CNN, MSNBC, ABC et al.

    In any case, I look forward to your follow up piece on how immigration policy and general forms of nationalism send a country down a road that not many Americans or others in the free world would like to go down. Then maybe temper it with some information on what can go wrong in a country that has rampant immigration and completely open borders.

    I also take large issue with your statement "He refused to back down even after major corporations dropped him" as though somehow he should have bent to his corporate overlords, or maybe it was a poke at his net worth… I'm not real sure because apparently, neither are you. That statement reads like so much worshiping of the state and the court of public opinion that its ridiculous. While his position may be abhorrent to you I hardly see it as a point of mention that he has stuck to his guns in the face of corporate pressure to change his views to the bending fickle public.

    Finally, if you wish to insult a large portion of the country, at least be a bit more direct. You seem to suggest in the underlying tone of your article that Trump is only seeing a surge in the polls because those who would support him are as racist or more racist than his obviously (according to all of the media) racist views on all immigrants, when perhaps it might be argued that ILLEGAL immigration hurts many Americans in diverse ways. Additionally you seem to suggest that there is no separation between ILLEGAL immigrants and immigrants in general, and in fact go on to point out that Americans are bigger pieces of shit than even immigrants are.

    Unfortunately you have neglected the facts by being unable to separate the illegal subset from the legal subset and have only painted a picture of your inability to critically think about information. I'm sure you will staunchly defend your parroted narrative that was packaged and sold to you by other media, but for the love of everything, please leave that shit off of alternative media. You're poisoning the well bro.

  59. Who gives a fuck about my "filthy mouth" because you're the one starting shit. I addressed what you said I didn't address, maybe you're even dumber than you already seem because you can't read or comprehend what I said. This discussion is over because you're too dumb to have a debate with.

  60. His statements aren't racist , they are truthful, undocumented illegal aliens do not belong here , have you seen some of the people they are allowing . If Mexicans want to come here legit there is a way to do it where they won't have to worry about being deported if they follow the laws that people have always done . They are sending deug dealers etc, all they do not want here just like cuba sent their people from prisons before during carters time in office.

  61. It's a well know fact , backed by stats that Serial Killers are predomantly White ( I'm white). Also theirs a lot of talk about the "facts". Donald Trump never use facts, what ever he feels like saying is "his Facts"

  65. The common theme for Donald Trump is that illegal immigrants are criminals…. Hence the word illegal.

  66. Simply by the FACT that a person entered this country illegally, Trump (and most of the US population not in big cities ) has every right to call them criminals. They broke the law at the exact line the law begins. Nothing else really matters.

  67. We know that Mr. Trump was talking about illegal immigrants but when put out to the public as who is an illegal and who is legal, they will both be discriminated against because of the color of their skin.. Many people, like Mr. Trump, could not tell the difference unless trying to employ a person and asking for a green card/visa. As for his statement that Mexico doesn't send it's best, I know right now of a dozen people (university educated) that could have been a benefit for this country but this gov't wouldn't even let them take a 2 week vacation here. 2 weeks. So they traveled everywhere else in the world, with no issues and refuse to step foot here and spend their money.

  68. ^^^^ " I love the white people. Some of my friends are white" do you not see the blatant racism of those words? If a white person said " I love black people. I have a black friend" they are blasted for being racist. Your people (as you say) would not be getting killed at the border if they would stop trying to cross it illegally. If you dislike white people so much and your country is so great GO BACK.

  70. Reba, you may be right about SOME people in this country, but I , and many others I know have no problem with legal immigrants, and in fact I wish the govt would streamline the process and just beef up compliance monitoring on visas…. However ILLEGAL Immigration is bad because the decent hardworking illegals can get ripped off by people here because they can't go to the authorities and complain, and the "not so decent" ones commit crimes with impunity.

  71. Janice Land You missed the entire point of my post. You are completely clueless. Those are all things people like Donald Trump has said.

    You have quite rightly seen the absurdity of my comments. So why don't you focus instead on the absurdities of people like Donald Trump, Donald Sterling, and the judge in the courtroom during Dylan Roof's hearing?

    I feel sorry for people like you. You remain ignorant about the very society you live in.

  72. Janice Land No!. It has been white people who have used the excuse, "Some of my friends are black." And it is interesting that you focus on black people instead of Latinos or Brown people like myself. Why didn't you instead write "If a white person said, 'I love the Mexican people…'" Oh wait, Donald Trump already said that! See!

  73. have YOU seen these people? you live in pennsylvania, across the entire country. i live in phoenix where a lot of these people actually end up and have never had a bad experience. the vast majority of mexicans i've met have been pleasant people who do hard work with a good attitude which is better than most americans. do you have any idea how difficult the legal immigration process is or how ridiculous the tests they're forced through are? you're extremely misinformed. they are not "sending drug dealers." most of these people just want to provide for their families and feel they have a better shot of doing that here.

  75. You're a special kind of stupid aren't you? REREAD the first two sentences of the second paragraph of YOUR post.
    "I love the white people. Some of my friends are white." . Who says only white people are racist.? And to make you happy I like Latinos. I dated one once. I also like Brown people. I do have a brown friend. Actually, I have white, black, Latino and brown (Honduras, Guatemala) in my family.
    But since you're interested Donald Trump does not have my vote. I heard that speech you are referring to and I am not ignorant. I'm very aware of the society I live in thank you. People like you who are focusing on the absurdities of Donald Trump are the ones who are giving him the opportunity to spout his nonsense..every time he says something stupid folks like you give him free publicity to keep doing it.

  77. Interestingly enough, each and every illegal immigrant that comes over is a criminal. Not saying they all commit other crimes but just the act of entering the Country illegally makes them all criminals. So the data chart on illegal immigrants committing crimes would have to be 100% as the act of entering just made them a criminal.

  78. Illegal immigrants are criminals. See that "illegal" part that you put in your own article? That's breaking the law. I'm not saying I support Trump, but this bullshit thinking that we need to let another country invade ours to "work" is nonsense. No other civilized society allows this, but we are so Politically Correct here we put up with it. Deport them all and no their kids are not citizens.

  79. They aren't more likely to commit crimes you pinhead, there are more whites in the country so statistically whites are going to have a higher percentage.
