    Hello and I hope you are able to answer my request.

    I sincerely believe immigrants will be what saves the United States of America. History is proof and supports my belief.

    I am 3rd generation Polish-American and desire to keep the hopes of peoples not only here in the USA, but those with a desire to come here for a better life.

    I also believe we need to have those families residing here now to vote and or register to vote. This Presidential elect year is key to their hopes for the future in this country and for our country.

    So to get to the question I am posing: how can I find a source for all newspapers or publications that serve first, second...generation immigrants.

    I hope you can be of assistance.

    Respectfully requested,

    Ronald D. Roberts

    Update: March 14, 9:34 pm

    Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) posted the following on Facebook on March 14:

    "There's a history of demagogues calling those those they disagree with 'terrorists' and using that a justification for intimidation and violence - and that history is ugly and dangerous. There's also a history of people staying quiet for too long, hoping for the best but watching silently as the threat metastasizes. Donald Trump is a bigger, uglier threat every day that goes by - and its time for decent people everywhere - Republican, Democrat and Independent - to say No More Donald. There is no virtue in silence."

    There need to be more political figures and leaders in both parties with the courage to speak out bravely, as Elizabeth Warren has, and to tell the truth about Donald Trump - while they still can.

    My original letter follows:

    For another article that is well worth reading on the possible consequences of Donald Trump's addiction to authoritarianism and violence, see Jonathan Chait in New York Magazine:

    Trump Poses an Unprecedented Threat to Democracy

    http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer...democracy.html

    Remember, it all began with Trump's speeches aimed at stirring up hate and prejudice against Mexican, Muslim and other minority immigrants. Where will it end?

    Here is another view of what a Trump presidency would be like from one of America's leading conservatives, National Review Editor Rich Lowry. Lowry, far from being a pro-immigration advocate, was a leader in the movement to derail comprehensive immigration reform after it was passed by the Senate four years ago. Therefore, his following criticism of Trump is not based on any basic disagreement over immigration policy.

    It is based on something more fundamental - contrasting attitudes toward democracy itself. The following is an extract from a March, 2016 article by Lowry in POLITICO:

    "Trump's iteration of the Republican party won't have a bleeding heart; it will be out for blood. Far from eschewing negative campaigning, personal abuse - and threats - will be its calling card. It will care less about policy than attitude and shibboleths. Electorally, it will repel minorities and hope to run up the score with whites. It won't have an open hand on immigration but will talk of mass deportation. It won't care about human rights, and in fact will be happy to violate them - or threaten to - as the national interest and desire for vengeance dictate."

    Is this the kind of president that America may be on the point of electing? Again, the above words are not those of a left wing protester such as the ones who shut down Trump's rally in Chicago. They are not the words of one of Trump's Democratic opponents.

    The above are the words of a major opinion leader within Trump's own party, someone with an impeccable conservative record going back many years - who is now a voice standing up for decency and democratic values at one of the most dangerous times in American history - a time when America is being tempted to embrace the same fascist ideology that it spent four years defeating during WW2, the biggest war in this country's entire history.

    Mr. Obama is no better than Mr. Trump. He keeps ignoring my claims for the violtion of Human Right of the Buenos Aires Embassy. OK, now he is coming to Argentina and he will see my banners and protest just across his residence. What you want is what you get. Watch the news.

    Many of us sympathize with your plight, but since you live in a country that has gone through a terrible experience with fascist dictatorship only a few decades ago, you should know better than most people what the difference is between President Obama and Donald Trump.

    When you demonstrate against President Obama on his visit to Argentina, you will not be knocked down or beaten up, at least by US security. But if you demonstrate against "President" Trump, certainly in the United States, and possibly elsewhere as well, you will be in danger of being beaten up or worse by Trump's security people.

    You also must know well Argentina's history of murder and torture against the Desaparecidos under fascism in the 1970's.

    We do not want that to happen here in the United States. And it can happen here. Donald Trump can make it happen. He will make it happen if he becomes president.

    I am ending my letters for this week on a pessimistic note for those who care about tolerance toward and equality for non-white immigrants, and the survival of America itself as a democracy governed by the rule of law, rather than the will of a bigoted, demagogic autocrat, who admires foreign dictators such as Vladimir Putin and threatens the use of violence and torture as a means of governing.

    The latest media reports are full of talk of surrender by the leaders in his own party to Donald Trump and his proto-fascist agenda for America, including mass deportation Latino and Asian immigrants, a ban on entry to the US by Muslims based solely on their religion without any evidence of harmful intent, and the abolition of the pillars of America's skilled worker legal immigration system - H-1B visas and green cards through labor certification.

    It was probably too much to hope that the leaders of a Republican party which has done so much over the last twenty or thirty years to create the atmosphere which produced Trump would put the interests of the American people ahead of political expediency, or choose courage over cowardice by standing up to him before it is too late.

    It is now up to the Democrats to stop Trump, which raises a host of other problems. This is a perilous time, a very grave time, not only for our immigration system, but for our democracy and for all the American people.

    True. However, Mr. Obama is ignoring the illegal behavior of his friend, ambassador Mamet, regardless of what Argentina is, or is not.... Get my point?

    Here is the latest comment on Trump from Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential standard bearer, as reported in the Huffington Post on March 18:

    "Through the calculated statements of its leader, Trumpism has become associated with racism, misogyny, bigotry, xenophobia, vulgarity and, most recently, threats and violence. I am repulsed by each and every one of these."


    Many pro-immigration advocates, if not nearly all, opposed Romney and his "self-deportation" policies in the 2012 election. But the above words were those of a principled Republican and a courageous and true American. They should be taken to heart by everyone who cares about this country.

    To start the weekend off, the Huffington Post reports that half of all Americans, including more than a quarter of Republicans, see "Fascist Undertones" in Donald Trump's campaign. See:
