This is a great story:
Immigration is a hot topic these days and an important one. Does our current system need to be reworked and improved? Sure. Every system does after a while. Do we need the kind of hysterical, nativist talk that we’ve been getting? Certainly not.
While much of this didn’t affect me very much (my family has been in the US for over a century), the sentiment does spill over towards people in various groups, sometimes when they don’t have much attachment to a foreign power. This is part of the corrosive nature of racism.
