Trump’s Racist Citizenship Director Busted For Finding Group Who Attacked Immigrants As ‘Invaders’
Donald Trump’s administration has been under a lot of fire lately over their harsh immigration policies and the man running it all has a history of xenophobia.
On Saturday, CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski reported that Ken Cuccinelli, acting Director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, was a co-founder of a virulently anti-immigrant group called “State Legislators for Legal Immigration” in 2007.
The group was known for spreading racist propaganda about illegal immigration, even going as far as to call it an act of war by foreign countries.
The group blasted such immigrants as “invaders” responsible for “serious infectious diseases, drug running, gang violence, human trafficking, [and] terrorism.”
Cuccinelli has largely used the same rhetoric as the group – in a 2014 speech he said rush of unaccompanied minors at the border was an invasion that gave then- Texas Gov. Rick Perry the right to enter treaties and wage war under the Constitution. https://t.co/AcdEMak3Hp pic.twitter.com/q88lSVyuI4
