“Go Back Where You Came From!”
That has been the cry of bigots and racists throughout American history. It was shouted at Irish, at Jews, at Italians, at anyone who spoke with an accent or whose skin was darker or “swarthier” than those with “Nordic” complexion and hair color. (Read the book, “The Guarded Gate” to understand how such bigotry became institutionalized in the United States.) And now the President of the United States has spoken those words.
|These are the subjects of the President's racist attack.. Three of these Members of Congress "came from" |
or were born in the United States and the other was brought here as a child with her immigrating parents.
