Dear Mrs. Trump,
Walking through the School of Social Work on Wednesday morning, I overheard you on TV. You said many lovely things about issues so near and dear to my heart, but I was confused upon hearing you say them. It seemed incongruous that you spoke earnestly about “fighting injustices” when just a stone’s throw away from you, our lawmakers were discussing how to best gut our nation’s healthcare system. You spoke eloquently about how we must have “respect for people from all backgrounds and ethnicities,” while immigrants are treated with great disdain by your own husband. I am curious, why not talk more about how you too were an immigrant to this country? Do you realize what an incredible advocate you could be in reminding others of the worth of immigrants and the importance of treating them with compassion?
