Trump’s office of anti-immigrant propaganda will hurt all immigrants

Despite many studies showing that undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than native-born Americans, President Trump is creating a new office called Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) to publicize crimes committed by unauthorized immigrants. The new office will not only further demonize undocumented immigrants, but will increase hate crimes against all immigrants.

President Trump, stop scaring away foreign tourists. Take a lesson from Costa Rica.

International searches for flights to the United States have dropped significantly since President Trump’ s election, and tourism industry groups say it’s due to the president’s harsh rhetoric against immigrants and potrayals of an alleged “American carnage” in U.S. cities. Trump should follow the example of Costa Rica’s president, and go out of his way to make foreigners feel welcome.

Trump will bring jobs back from Mexico — to be replaced by robots

New studies confirm that President Trump’s claim that he will “make America great again” by bringing jobs back from Mexico is a nationalist-populist hallucination. It’s a political, not economic, plan aimed at consolidating Trump’s base of displaced manufacturing workers in a handful of Midwestern states, which account for a very small percentage of overall U.S. employment.
