The Countdown #14

Restricted and Suspended Legal Immigration

The xenophobia of Donald Trump has been well documented throughout much of his career in real estate and in politics. The policies that develop from these ideas strike against the foundation of the United States of America. 

 

One of the primary reasons early Americans fought so hard to stay was due to the suppression and violence they faced in the lands they came from. In the Declaration of Independence, the new Americans listed their communications to the British and what those founding the nation would stand up and fight for. 

“We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here,” they wrote near the end of the Declaration and described it as a call for justice that the British had become ‘deaf’ to. Somehow that origin of protecting those seeking to emigrate here has been lost in the Trump Administration as they continue to restrict and suspend legal immigration. This week, the immigration policies of this administration head to the highest court due to the atrocities tens of thousands of asylum seekers continue to face. 

 

‘The Biden Plan for Securing Our Values as a Nation of Immigrants’ is a plan to stop the assault on traditional American values and the strong history of people from across the globe choosing to leave where they are and emigrate to America. Joe will restore the sanctity of our laws by reaffirming our commitment to those who turn to America to be protected from intolerance, oppression, and injustice.
