Trump insists that the need to build a wall responds to “a humanitarian and security crisis.”
[Trump's] verbal abuse and dehumanization of Mexican and Latin immigrants take the traditional U.S. policy against persons living or entering the country illegally to another level.
Trump asserted that we are all one family ... If he truly wishes to promote national harmony, then he should ... repair the fissure in society that he caused.
Trump’s wall plan ... buries the image of the United States as a land of welcome.
Deep down it’s not Trump, but the many millions who bought his idea that their neighbor is the problem.
People who pretend there are more parallels than the mere concept of a wall are doing two things: they trivialize the old construction and they distort the planned project.
