What’s the point? Trump’s policies on immigration and refugees rely on blatant cruelty and they accomplish nothing. According to researcher and author Arnold Isaacs, who has written widely on refugee and immigration issues, Trump’s policies hurt people instead of fixing the system. In truth immigration is down and the government takes in $63 billion more than it spends on refugee care, because they are hard honest workers. And there have been no acts of terrorism by immigrants. The politicization of immigrant issues has resulted in a policy of cruelty, when compassionately fixing the system is what’s needed.
