Former United States President Barack Obama, who does not often comment on current politics, seemed to endorse on Saturday (July 27) an op-ed written by 148 African Americans who served in his administration that called out President Donald Trump for recent comments degrading four congresswomen of colour.
Under the headline, "We are African Americans, we are patriots, and we refuse to sit idly by", the former Obama administration officials vowed to stand up against the "racism, sexism, homophobia and xenophobia... wielded by the president and any elected official complicit in the poisoning of our democracy".
"There is truly nothing more un-American than calling on fellow citizens to leave our country - by citing their immigrant roots, or ancestry, or their unwillingness to sit in quiet obedience while democracy is being undermined," they wrote.

Funny how Donald Trump was never considered a "racist" until he became President. Americans like Immigrants that come in the LEGAL way. Are we a nation of laws or not. Democrats don't want improve our border wall or get rid of loopholes in our Immigration laws that allow fake Asylum seekers to say in US, until Asylum claim makes it through the court system.
Over 40 years now Congress has kicked the immigration can (problem) down the road. It's time for the government to address this problem.
