TO THE EDITOR:

     President Trump knows exactly what he is doing; he loves America.

     “[Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military,” Trump tweeted. ...

     The Democrats’ version of immigration is to bring people from impoverished countries. Keeping DACA/Dreamers is all about voters for Democrats.
Take a good look at the places Democrats run with no checks and balances, people are impoverished. Democrats want to keep you poor; they need a growing class of people who keep voting them into office, handing out food stamps and welfare, burdening taxpayers. ...

     Putting the American taxpayer first is not racism.
