President Trump talks a lot about fake news and witch hunts. This same person tries to scare us with speculative tales about all the bogymen coming across our boarders to do us harm. Immigrants coming to the United States are for the most part people who have the intelligence and initiative to get out of a bad situation and attempt to better their lives.
Immigrants are less than a sixth of our population yet they have been awarded over a third of the Nobel Prizes in science given to those connected with universities in our country. These people constitute 16.9 percent of the nation’s workforce and have started a quarter of all new businesses. These immigrants are young people ready to start paying social security taxes to support our aging population.
It should be obvious who is delivering fake news. We need to be very carefully critical of information that comes to us. Ask what the original source of the information was. We need to ask ourselves if the information makes sense or is it self-contradictory? Is the information helpful in making decisions or does it feed prejudice?
