Trump Would Have Flunked His Immigration Terms

–Vitus Ozoke

Donald Trump has finally released his much hyped immigration plan. The plan has three major highlights. Prospective immigrants will have to:

1. Learn English 
2. Learn and pass American Civics, and 
3. Pass medical screening

First of all, if Donald Trump were an immigrant, he would never be admitted into the United States even under his own plan. His vocabulary is severely limited. There is more to English than ‘fantastic’, ‘incredible’, and ‘believe me’. English also requires correct spelling. Dude can’t spell anything. And, by the way, bigly is not an English word.

As for American Civics, Donald Trump will get a big fat F. If Trump knew anything about American Civics, he would not be colluding with Russians. He would not be obstructing justice. He would not be hiding his taxes. He would not be siding with Vladimir Putin over America’s intelligence chiefs. He would not be siding with the Saudis in the brutal murder of an American journalist Jamal Khashoggi. He would not be paling with Russians in the Oval Office as he celebrated his firing of FBI Director James Comey. He would not be scamming innocent American students with a fake and fraudulent Trump University.

If Donald Trump knew anything about American Civics, he would not be lying from the presidential pulpit on average of 100 times per day. He would not be hiding and redacting the Mueller Report. He would not be personally profiting from the American presidency in violation of the emolument clause. He would not be courting the friendship of murderous dictators around the world. He would not be separating children from their parents. He would not be locking children in cages. He would not be taking porn stars to his matrimonial home. He would not be trying to destroy every institutional bulwark of American democracy. He would not be constructing false equivalences between the KKK White supremacists and decent protesters.

If Donald Trump knew anything about American Civics, he would not be resisting congressional subpoenas. He would not be demanding monarchical loyalty from his cabinet staff. He would not be golfing more than he works. He would not mock a disabled reporter. He would not toss paper towels at victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. He would not disparage John McCain’s heroic and patriotic records, especially given that Donald Trump himself chickened out of going to war, citing a nonexistent bone spur. He would not collude with a doctor to provide him a false medical report. If Donald Trump knew anything about American Civics, he would learn to be civil himself.

As for medical screening, we must insist on making mental health part of the screening. If we did, Donald Trump would never make it to the American shores.
