Trump is #2 in GOP Field - Page 289
The whole idea that muslims all have the same customs, cultures and outlook on life is one of the more curious assumptions that I have come across. I have an ex from Singapore with roots in Malaysia (some were smart/lucky enough to move/live in S'pore before independence) and a sister-in-law from Morocco. While both were born and raised in Muslim environments they couldn't have been more different due to culture and custom. When going to the mosque, the Singaporean would don a salwar kameez and a very thin silky head covering that really didn't cover anything while the Moroccan would like a Jawa extra from a Star Wars set.
All Jews are bankers and lawyers.
I see it as him challenging the idea that immigration is always good. People have been hearing this for so long they're shell shocked when someone says differently. A lot of people have finally realized that mass immigration, legal or illegal, is not without consequences.
People asked him to clarify. He clarified that he meant that the government of Mexico is deliberately sending criminals to the US. There's no ambiguity there, no big analogy. Trump's pushed his anti-immigration case in much better terms in other statements, but this was not one of those. He even had a chance to weasel back off that statement, and he doubled down on it.
If you're an (legal) immigrant, you want a sane solution for fixing America's immigration system. You don't want to face a generation of getting pulled over and asked for your papers.
Its funny we're the 4th largest country by area and 3rd by population.
Where do you live? Your country is probably like 5% the area and population as us.
nobody is going to deport 12mil people, this would be routine stuff with maybe slightly increased rate
Trump has proposed mass deportations.
He's since rolled back on that, I guess trying to get some Hispanic voters. They're not terribly likely to forgive him for proposing it in the first place though.
