Letter: Deny which immigrants?

To the Editor:

Has this great country of the United States of America, before Donald J. Trump, ever had a president who has shown such disrespect for so many people? Donald J. Trump will insult anyone who may disagree with him. Donald J. Trump will use vile, disgusting language to insult anyone.

Donald J. Trump does not understand or appreciate that our great country was built by immigrants, including some who did not come to the United States of America voluntarily. It would be difficult to name one country which has not provided people who migrated to our great country. Even though Donald J. Trump may feel that our country is not great, most likely immigrants came here because they felt that the United States of America is great.

We now have a president who believes that people from certain countries should be discarded into a trash heap rather than be allowed to move to a country they consider to be great. They would be denied the chance to move to a country where they may have the opportunity for a better life for themselves and their families. The United States of America is not a country of opportunity for those who are told they are not wanted.

People came to our great country to better their life, to seek liberty and to pursue happiness. Immigrants came to the United States of America to create businesses, build factories and to lay the lines for our railroad system.

Immigrants came to our great country to farm the land, work in cities or to provide their labor efforts so others could become extremely wealthy. Some provided us with fantastic music. One immigrant taught us to sing “God Bless America.” Some immigrants may have provided their labor efforts in Donald J. Trump’s casinos, golf courses and hotels. Which immigrants should have been denied the opportunity to better their lives by moving to the United States of America? How about your relatives who migrated to our great country?
