Trump’s Immigration Policies Aim To Preserve The White Majority

President Trump’s new effort to limit legal immigration, as well as his other immigration policies, helps to fulfill the mission of white supremacists.

President Trump made clear in his reported “shithole countries” remarks in 2018 that he prefers white wealthy immigrants over poor brown immigrants. Today, we saw that attitude reflected in policy. CNN reported:

The rule means many green card and visa applicants could be turned down if they have low incomes or little education, and have used benefits such as most forms of Medicaid, food stamps, and housing vouchers, because they’d be deemed more likely to need government assistance in the future.

The 837-page rule applies to those seeking to come to or remain in the United States via legal channels and is expected to impact roughly 382,000 people seeking to adjust their immigration, according to the Department of Homeland Security. However, immigration advocates say millions of people could be affected by the regulation.

Andy Slavitt—former head of Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act for President Barack Obama—put this in perspective.

Make no mistake, this has never been about curbing illegal immigration or creating a “merit-based” system. This is about preserving the white majority that Trump’s base fears losing. The United States Census projects that America will become “minority white” by 2024.

Fox News Anchor Tucker Carlson has echoed white nationalist fears of diversity in America and has fear-mongered about an imminent diluted American culture. Many of Trump’s actions, partially engineered by White House Advisor Stephen Miller, align with the white supremacist mission of creating a white ethnostate.

President Trump previously implemented the cruel “zero tolerance” policy which led to over 3,000 migrant children to be separated from their parents. Trump currently has in place metering policies that limit the number of asylum claims that can be processed at the border. Trump has made illegal efforts to end the asylum process as we know it, made continued calls to end due process rights for migrants, and detains migrants in inhumane conditions.

Today, President Trump moved to limit legal immigration. 9 days ago, a white supremacist terrorist echoed Trump’s anti-immigrant cries of an “invasion” and targeted Latinos in El Paso, murdered 22 people and injuring 24. Last week, ICE detained 680 immigrant workers in Mississippi.

Over the past two years, President Trump’s racist rhetoric has fueled the threat of white supremacist terrorism while he has actively restrained government efforts to combat it. If you’re still wondering why 2020 Democratic candidates are accusing Trump of being a white supremacist himself, and his well-documented history of racist comments wasn’t enough, look no further than his bigoted policies.
