Dear Editor:

Donald Trump continues to make clear what many of us knew to be true in throughout the 2016 presidential election cycle: he is a racist whose bigotry and ignorance guide his decision-making.

For far too long, his allies and validators have excused his shameful behavior and discriminatory policies, refusing to hold him to the standard of the Office of the President.

This nation is made great, due in no small part, to the contributions of immigrants of all races, nationalities and religions. The very fiber of America is strengthened when we uplift and include everyone seeking to achieve the American dream.

With an agenda that prioritizes protecting our Dreamers, comprehensive immigration reform and continuing efforts to increase national security – it is a disgrace that the leader of this nation has reassured the nation and global community of his woeful incompetence.
