Son and Grandson of Immigrants Wants to Halt Immigration

Son and Grandson of Immigrants Wants to Halt Immigration

Donald J. Trump, grandson of an unskilled Bavarian draft dodger and son of a Scottish domestic servant, wants Congress to pass laws that would have barred his own ancestors from moving to the United States. Mr. Trump’s thoughts on immigration are informed by White House resident troll Stephen Miller, whose immigrant great-grandfather, a refugee from Belarus, flunked the U.S. Citizenship Test.

Clearly, this is a case of pulling in the Ellis Island gangplank after your own folks have landed.

    … while those of us who try to subscribe to the principle of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” are trying to steady that gangplank. Even if our kin came in through Angel, instead of Ellis, Island.
