WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump picked the grandest stage to unveil one of his first immigration initiatives: Appearing before a joint session of Congress a month after taking office, Trump announced the creation of a hotline to help victims of crimes committed by immigrants.

Almost immediately, the Victims of Crime Engagement hotline was immersed in controversy and confusion.
=============================================
Trump was playing to his xenophobic, racist base with this stunt. Costing millions of $$$ & sewing confusion, the hotline called VOICE was seen by many as a way to turn in neighbors & coworkers suspected of being here illegally. It all was based on the false notion that illegal immigrants commit more crime than legal immigrants.

“I think the whole premise of it is racist,” said Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights. “It uses their pain and suffering and their legitimate tragedy for a very political goal, which is to create the support for President Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.”

Since this lady is lying...Trump doesn't have an "anti-immigrant" agenda...why should anyone listen to anything she has to say...about anything?

Trump boldly announced his anti-immigrant agenda when he rode down that escalator in Trump Tower to announce his candidacy. Or did you miss that?

Is someone going to call the hotline and report the illegals that Donald Trump employs himself?

This is a really bad comedy.

Do you like a little (or a lot) of hypocrisy with your politics?

Really...hows about a link?

Before you start searching frantically, make sure he's talking about "anti-immigrant"...not "anti-illegal-immigrant". Okay?

You don't want to do the same thing that other lady did, right?

You are dismissed.

Hail Trump!

Hail The Dear Leader!

I dismiss all who speak against him!

Anything negative about him is a lie!

He is glorious and can only do right!

Hail Trump!

Glory To His Name!

Glory To His Stable Genius and Good Brain!

Misery Upon His Enemies!

So...you DO want to do the same thing that lady did.

You are dismissed.

I gave you the link you requested. What else do you want? Trump is a racist & a bigot. Happy now? You were dismissed a long time ago.

sigh...

Trump was talking about illegal immigrants.

You don't realize that, do you? Or are you deliberately doing the same thing that lady did...dishonestly conflating two different things?
