The racist hatred that Trump extorts from his base drips down into our neighborhoods, all under the thinly disguised veil of “law and order.”

Do not be misled, it’s racism, pure and simple, just hidden under patriotic platitudes, and worked into a froth by politicians for their own benefit.

Undocumented workers have been a known reality for generations, they have been doing the hard work in full view, working the fields and service industries. And now all of a sudden, we need to build a wall, create a political catastrophe and evict hardworking folks who have been here for 20 years? Really?

You’re being led down the pathway of hate, all for the benefit of politicians. These are your neighbors, friends, co-workers — not some evil “bad hombres” as Trump wants you to believe.

The country’s been lied to, the swamp has been filled — not drained — 60 percent of the “tax cut” will go to the top 0.1 percent of the people, honorable news organizations in business for 100 years are being labeled fake, science is called fake, and the Russians are having meetings in Trump Tower with his team. Is this the America you want?
