Lesson From P.R. and Las Vegas: When Will Trump Stop Scapegoating Immigrants and Focus on Aiding and Protecting Americans Instead? Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
What is the biggest lesson that we can learn from the horrible shooting massacre in Las Vegas by an evidently deranged white, native-born American citizen who might never had access to a weapon if America had the kind of gun control laws that the Democrats and much of the American public have been clamoring for a very long time - laws which have been vigorously opposed by a president who has been obsessed instead with keeping Muslim students, skilled workers grandparents and refugees out of the US?

It is the same lesson that we learned last week when the president dragged his feet in sending military and other federal assistance to Puerto Rico to help its 3 million American citizens deal with the worst national disaster in that US Commonwealth's entire history, even as his DHS had been spending time and resources in rounding up almost 500 immigrants nationwide, including 317 people charges mainly with minor crimes, such as 86 alleged DUI offenders (see my October 2 Immigration Daily blog comment).

It is a very simple lesson: Scapegoating immigrants by blaming them for all of America's security, crime and economic problems (as, in the latter case, by the president's "Hire American" attack on the H-1B visa and other employment-based immigration programs while he seeks to deprive millions of Americans of essential health insurance in order to pay for tax cuts for billionaires) is not benefiting the American people, as Trump promised it would.

To the contrary, it is distracting America from this country's real problems. If there is any doubt about this, I would suggest asking the grieving family members of the 59 people, who were killed in Las Vegas (not to mention the more than 500 victims who were injured, some of them critically) in a shooting which a government that really cared about protecting its citizens, as opposed to demonizing Muslim, Latino, Asian and black immigrants, would most likely have been able to prevent through effective gun control laws.
