Trump’s New Head Of ICE Under Fire, History Of Racism And Bigotry Revealed On Live TV



President Donald Trump has a horrific track record of appointing totally unqualified people with outrageous views to extremely powerful positions within the government. When he is finally kicked out of office, we will still be stuck with federal agencies stuffed full of blatant racists and bigots for a very long time. He has recently added to that tally by selecting a man by the name of Mark Morgan as his pick for the position of director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE):

Morgan served as Border Patrol chief for the last six months of the Obama administration before he was fired in January 2017 by Trump’s first Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly. Since he was let go, Morgan has made public statements of support for Trump’s hardline immigration policies, from a physical wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to a family separation-esque dramatic action to curb migration. In April, Morgan appeared on the president’s favorite television network, Fox News, to support his proposal to release migrants, whom he labels as “burdens,” into sanctuary cities. “I’ve been [to the border],” Morgan told Fox News.

“The Border Patrol, ICE, their facilities are overwhelmed, the faith-based organizations and other nongovernmental organizations are overwhelmed. They have no choice. They’re going to have to start pushing these individuals out. Shouldn’t we kind of share the burden throughout the country?” This proposal would target primarily blue states and cities that did not vote Trump into office. “Here’s phase one of what ‘tougher’ looks like, in my opinion,” Morgan told The Los Angeles Times in an interview last month. According to Morgan, administration officials must “stop expecting that Congress is going to do their job. DHS is going to have to address this issue all alone.”

This is unbelievable to watch. The President is turning America into his personal laboratory of ultra conservative ideology, with no consideration whatsoever for the rights of American citizens, led alone those of immigrants. Ever since he became President of the United States and leader of the free world, he has consistently been living up to his reputation as a totally inept bigot with zero leadership ability and a wealth of prejudices to inform his policy, and this latest move just keeps in line with that trend. Of all the people he could have picked for this job, he went with Mark Morgan. There is, surely, no shortage of people who are not racist looking for high ranking public jobs. Those people, of course, would simply never register on President Trump’s radar.
