NY primaries are June 28th. We need national attn & support on who wins. White people have all been or have ancestors who have been immigrants and were accepted by this country. Why do these racist people think they can deny new folks!? Immigrants are humans and are not illegal.

Parlament resumes this week and Trudeau reveals his action plan. I can tell you there's nothing new with this socialist government. We'll have more intrusions into exclusive provintials jurisdiction, with our national child care program. More censorship with legislation that will regulate online content. More mass immigration with an increase in the number of refugees and elderly immigrants. And more spending with a recovery program that will cost one billion dollars. As inflation continues to reach new highs each month and everyone gets poorer, Trudeau's priorities are climate change and the imposition of more restrictions on our rights and freedoms.

In an interview with Rolling Stone

I’m not gonna jump on the Donald Trump bandwagon. I don’t like that. I get that a lot of people don’t like him for obvious reasons. But, what stuck with me was the children being taken away from their parents when they came into this country. That really bothered me because I was one of those immigrant children coming to America to flee poverty. And I couldn’t imagine a little child going through all of that, trying to get to another country because they didn’t have money in their country, or whether you’re fleeing from war … and then being taken away from the one person that makes you feel comfort. That is what really raised my eyebrows. That is what made me go, ‘Something about this doesn’t sit right in my spirit.’ But! On Celebrity Apprentice, I think he was funny as hell.

I’m not a Christian. But I try to live by the teachings of Jesus. There is nothing more morally profound than treating people as you would like to be treated. There is nothing less moral than taking babies from their mothers. As the birth of Jesus is celebrated, consider.

In an interview with People, talking about Donald Trump's zero tolerance and family separation policity on immigration

I know for myself with family members and friends who are fierce in their liberal politics and point of views as well as conservatives, all of them talked about their heartbreak when they saw these babies and young children standing in court without legal representatives with their families that were being detained separately and losing each other. Not only being pulled away from each other but not being able to be reunited. That should not be a political issue.

Trump’s new rule change would damage public schools for generations. The impact? Devastating! FYI-1/4 of kids in the U.S. have at least 1 immigrant parent & 1/2 of America’s public school students live below the poverty line. Let’s act + #ProtectFamilies http://bit.ly/submitcomment

Making America great doesn't mean building walls to keep people out; it means continuing to embrace the dreams of immigrants who add to our culture, our economy, and our humanity. [...] Making America greater most definitely doesn't mean turning asylum-seekers away or kidnapping their kids to turn them away from coming here.

I came to this country as an illegal immigrant @ 5 years old. I can’t imagine the horror of being in a strange place & having my parents stripped away from me at the age of 5. This is so scary to me. Please stop this. Can you try to imagine the terror & panic these kids feel right now? Not knowing if their parents are dead or alive, if they’ll ever see them again…

As an immigrant, I know the magnetic power of America's greatness. As a former border Governor, I know the importance of securing our border and fixing our absurdly broken immigration system. As an American, I know that kids shouldn't be pawns while the "adults" figure it out.

We have people coming into the country are trying to come in. We’re stopping a lot of them but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals and we’re taking them out of the country at a level, at a rate that’s never happened before and because of the weak laws they come in fast.

The United States is a compassionate nation. We are proud that we do more than any other country to help the needy, the struggling, and the underpriviledged all over the world. But as President of the United States, my highest loyalty, my greatest compassion, and my constant concern is for America's children, America's struggling workers, and America's forgotten communities. [...] I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties Democrats and Republicans to protect our citizens of every background color religion and Creed. My duty and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber is to defend Americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities and their right to the American Dream because Americans are dreamers too.

In a speech during the Grammy Awards

Tonight, in this room full of music’s dreamers, we remember that this country was made by dreamers, for dreamers, chasing the American dream. I’m here on this stage tonight because just like the Dreamers, my parents brought me to this country with nothing in their pockets but hope. They showed me what it means to work twice as hard and never give up. And honestly no part of my journey is any different from theirs. I’m a proud, Cuban-Mexican immigrant, born in eastern Havana, standing in front of you on the Grammy stage in New York City. And all I know is that just like dreams, these kids can’t be forgotten and are worth fighting for.

In a tweet

I’m all for limiting legal immigration on the grounds that we don’t need people who will be likely to end up on welfare. But the economic “raising wages” argument is no better than the argument for minimum wage. Artificial attempts to limit the labor supply by regulation achieve their goal, but also make business less competitive. This leads to outsourcing and technological change that actually kills jobs in the medium-long term. So if you’re going to make the argument to limit legal immigration, do it on cultural and/or public cost grounds, not jobs grounds.

As someone whose family member is a victim of terrorism, having lost my father–if we’re trying to combat terrorism by banishing people from coming to this country, we’re recalling going against the principles of what this country is about and creating fear. It’s the wrong way to go about it. If anything, we could be breeding anger and terror, and so I’m completely against what’s happening. I think it’s shocking. I think it’s a horrible idea and I feel for everyone who is affected, families are being torn apart. And I worry in the big picture what this means to the security of the world. It’s going completely opposite. You want to solve terror, you want to solve crime, it’s not the way to do it.
