Can Trump Supporters And Immigrants See Eye To Eye?

Can Trump Supporters And Immigrants See Eye To Eye?


Those are things we don’t want in the United States and one other thing There’s people with predatory behavior in every– Excuse me, but you get mad at me But if I could say this, it’s not baked into their religion Trump supporters, can I have you over there. My immigrants can I have you in the other light? Sometimes I feel anxious about how the other side views me. Uh, so it’s not necessarily about the idea of immigrants, but I’m Muslim and there can be a lot of directed aggression from Trump supporters that I think I felt and other people in my Muslim community have felt and That’s why I’m here sitting with you guys. I own a clothing line Magga preneur. This is my clothing line. I’m a political strategist and a political activist and when I leave my house, I am in fear for my life because every day I get death threats So I think we both should be able to freely express ourselves. I love everybody, I’m here for everybody I’ll fight for your right for freedom, but I expect for you to fight for mine too because that’s why we’re in America My name is Shastina, so I absolutely love immigration but I believe that we need to secure our border and it’s the same thing of I wouldn’t just let anyone in my car or in my house. Alright, disagreers come on in I used to get anxious about How I’m perceived not just by some quote-unquote other side because my identity is very apparent in standing in my truth I think it allows other folks to stand in theirs and to invite people to also learn more about me rather than Be worried about how I’m perceived. I think my group gets represented unfairly in the media. [laughter] Well I’m a Mexican and I hesitated because when Trump said that things about Mexicans being criminals and all that I I didn’t take it personal because I’m not that So I was like that does not represent me like I’ll take things yeah, so that’s why I hesitated But then I’m like I am not only one Mexican individual who’s an immigrant I’m part of all the immigrants no matter. What country You’re from We can say the same thing for Trump supporters right I mean Now we have to maybe I wasn’t called a racist, but you were called racist well guess what we’re both Trump supporters So now we have to band together Could I, could I ask both of you a question and I’d like an honest reaction to this in my mind, It’s languaging I’m a writer, and I think if we made a distinction between jihadists and Muslims that would solve a big problem That’s plausible and I think a lot of that goes in it’s really the realm of how much people really are interested in understanding that kind of diversification and uh, allowing the community that does know that really I don’t know take the lead and Initiative and show other people what that’s about. I feel threatened by this presidency. When President Trump got elected as president. I was scared even though I had Not a reason to because I’m legal here power becomes scary in hands of a monster power becomes scary in hands of ignorance, and I’m scared about My people and not only like I said the Mexicans all the good, hard-working immigrants. Yeah, I think the election night was when I felt alarmed. I’ve been a community organizer and an activist for 15 years now right that night It felt like a slap in the face To all of the work that we have always tried to do in terms of humanizing ourselves. My name is Kipasha I think we realize as immigrants how lucky we are to be here, and that’s why we want to create a society That’s more welcoming for others to be here>>You said it was a slap in the face, and I take offense to that because You’re saying you work so hard And yet we work so hard to to Elect a president of the United States that we think will enforce the the laws We’ll enforce the United States Constitution and it wasn’t to be racist or it wasn’t to Boot you out of the country, and it was to enforce the First Amendment It’s actually to enforce your freedom of speech. I understand why you’re scared That as a white Trump supporter I am scared of this presidency because I have lost my freedom of speech I have lost my freedom of religion I have lost my freedom to wear this shirt in the public just because I have a different political view Now I’m the enemy in my own country I think that that’s unfortunate about happened to you But it’s almost like you have some semblance of the reality that people of color live with for centuries here And I’ve never seen that and I’ve never the first time you felt that right, right But I I’m just gonna let you know that my neighbors are black. I have Muslim neighbors I have I have neighbors of all kinds when we go to the grocery store, and I’m picking out yogurt I’m picking out yogurt this looks like someone just like you, but it doesn’t mean that you experience the same thing I think even though we eat the same yogurt but nobody in my County treats people like that it’s Just not. I don’t think you would be able to say that I’ve lived in Orange County up until a few months ago If I’m at a mall or if I’m even at the beach right I get a lot of strange stares I even feel like a lot of people after the election came up to me asking me about my positions my religion my identity so what I’m trying to say is like I can actually relate to what you went through because that to be honest is a shred of similarity to what people of color we came here, and then we were born basically sure I Believe in immigration, but I am against illegal immigration My whole thing is assimilation right so like making sure that the culture’s match if you know someone in the Middle East who’s Gay will be killed right That’s a thing and it’s horrible if someone with that culture is somehow makes it through vetting and comes here And then sees a gay couple you know kissing or whatever They’re gonna Freak out or they’re gonna react very differently in a way that you know we’re trying to move past or not trying to be held back by so I believe assimilation is Probably one of the most important factors of why we need legal and not illegal immigrations my thing is about money An awful lot of people who came here legally don’t want Illegal people being able to come or get free college it costs a hundred and eighteen billion Dollars in welfare benefits, that’s a huge Why do I have to pay so that Walmart has cheap workers my name is Ken hunger? I don’t have anything against immigrants. It’s a political problem. It’s not an immigrant problem. I Was an illegal immigrant at one point in my life I am not anymore but ultimately we left a country of war a country where extremism and terrorism was a reality and This is something that was on a daily oppression towards women If we don’t have legal immigration And we’ll have that here we want you to come and be safe But don’t you want that for everyone else? doesn’t matter where you’re coming from I think it might be a misconstrued and/or a misconception to think that the Illegal immigrants might bring up the crime rates and when we’re talking about what happens After immigrants or refugees or illegals or anything coming to the state and how can we help them from here? I think that is the real essential question we have a humanitarian duty to help one another out regardless of if we’re Afghan if we’re Israeli if we’re American we’re all humans ultimately it’s so fantastic But what about our vets what about our children that are starving? What about our foster homes that are full? What about them? We’re not helping them, we’re taking in all these refugees if we can’t fix our citizens How can we fix others? It’s just kind of like if I can’t love myself. I can’t love another person It should be easier to immigrate into America It should be easier the way time should be shorter, right But I believe that it’s so lengthy not because the process is so extreme. I’ve I mean personally I think it’s so lengthy because it’s mismanaged. Yeah, I think that Well that too, but I think it’s just like there’s a way in a process That should be put in place so it’s not 15 years. Let’s say that they fully cooperate, right Let’s say they have everything they have all the documents, and they’re ready yeah, I think it should be a lot shorter Do you think make it less bureaucratic yeah basically, okay? I mean I think I would agree with that I just feel like when it comes to Trump you support the individual, but then the bureaucracy the Administration all of that is so painstaking just so inefficient and in all of this it doesn’t really compute for me So I think we’ve been in there a year, right? Yeah, we have so many changes that we want to make so let’s talk about a couple of policy things What about the Muslim banner the travel ban the travel ban to me was more about? Obama But it was enacted by Trump. Don’t don’t get me wrong I agree with the travel ban right and I agree with refugees But that’s two separate things to me so what I’m trying to say is that none of these policies that are happening are Not to do with one another they’re all Intertwined when we say we support the travel ban, but we also support refugees But we also want to like help them get vaccinations And we also want to do that some islands want to well don’t forget We’re funding the same bombs that are causing The Yemenis to have to become route there has to be a reason right so so it’s so it’s all it’s all it’s all connected Right so, so why are we bombing Yemen personally? I haven’t looked into Yemen. I guess I’m missing your point Refugees you support Yes travel, ban this one, ban you support. It’s not me. It’s not a mother. Yes. I support a travel, ban So we can assess who’s coming in. I just think it’s important to contextualize like you’re saying nothing happens in a vacuum Yeah, right, and I think that if we start to actually connect the dots like I’m encouraging us to do then It’ll become a lot more understandable, I mean I don’t believe anyway I Would like to answer your question about why we’re bombing Yemen We’re not palm in Yemen were bombing radical jihadists in Yemen who were killing people That’s why we’re bombing parts of Yemen Selectively to kill people who are doing terrible terrible things, and there’s a tremendous amount of rape happening in England Taking these little girls grooming them because they feel they have the right to do we don’t want that here those are things We don’t want in the United States and one other thing. There’s people with predatory behavior in every excuse me If I could say this and you’ll get mad at me But if I could say this it’s not baked into their religion There are a hundred and nine passages in the Quran where people are told to kill infidels and in Christians and Jews there’s nothing like that in our Bible or in the Bhagavad-gita or in anything Buddha taught or any other religion. I’m aware of in the world until people renounce those values then They scare me I don’t think so I haven’t renounced any part of my religion in front of you, so I hope that you don’t feel threatened by me So I’m not sure what you mean by that And I won’t renounce any part of it slam the point that I’m trying to make is that you didn’t really answer the question No, he did. He said the reason why we’re bombing him on Yemen is to save the people because I’m assuming that in Yemen. We’ve Managed to keep out people like that guys remember. This is a video of a trumpet immigrants. We’re mixing too much the religion Well, I think the race the Taliban yes, yes that you shouldn’t question somebody’s religion. I am very religious very religious and I’m not putting anything About my religion in here I’m here to talk about me as an immigrant you guys are here to talk about Donald Trump’s like supporting him and yes I’ve learned a lot like you guys are human, too. You have values you Who would have thought you know that we would have found? Common ground and we wouldn’t like hit each other right here You know because after the media portraying you guys as bad, or closest terrorist whatever right? I think the media is getting us all in a different light Yeah, I think that we’re portraying ourselves in a very different light, too I mean I feel very attacked just now for my religion when I did start to talk about myself as an immigrant You don’t say you kept talking about the travel, ban. It’s a Muslim, but that has nothing to do with immigration It’s not a Muslim But what I’m trying to just say is that no one should have to explain Muslim Christian Jewish none of the above What they are to you, but Muslims? Continuously have to defend. Not only their religion, but their humanity what I love about this country is the Diversity I just when I came here from Mexico I just loved how there was different religions different colors different people like it’s amazing It’s it’s beautiful, and I don’t I don’t understand how empty of a human you have to be to discriminate someone just because of their looks, it’s it’s these pre-programmed thoughts in our head from just media as what I believe just blowing things out of proportion just Consistently just the outlook on Minorities or the outlook on people in certain situations is just bad once you humanize someone when you’re having a conversation When I and I look past you know whatever these biases that people try to Enact on me right or that I see and I start looking at you as a person I start listening to what you’re saying you really realize that it’s not that different I mean we just we have different situations we have different information But we’re all trying to do the best that we have I think the real interesting aspect that I guess a lot of discrimination is really about is taking this general idea of phenomenon where you can associate my case at least like Muslims Terrorists equal each other and take individuals and group them so easily with that sort of discrimination And I think that’s something that we have to work towards in terms of separating ourselves from doing that Thank you.

  1. Having a world "leader" stamp your entire heritage as a group of rapists and criminals is NOT the same thing as being called a racist because you support a racist…you made a choice to support him. She didn't choose her ancestry.

  2. I don't think the blonde woman is capable of any original thought. Typical. Just watch her immediate change in attitudes toward bombing.

    Next episode suggestion: Woman wearing hijab goes off on as many Trump supporters as possible.

  3. “Power becomes scary in the hands of a monster, power becomes scary in the hands of ignorance” that was one of the most powerful thing said by anyone in this entire thing mostly because you could feel her fear when she said it and that it’s truth.. I felt it when she said that

  4. "we are bombing BAD PEOPLE jihadist"
    tell em again why innocent children died on the thousand due to disgusting bombing commited by the usa?
    DISGUSTING

  5. lol the cunt insults the quranbut the torah and the bible have plenty of ultra violent quotes. evenmore than the quran
    lmao

  6. We're not bombing yamen, we bombing radical jihadists. someone tells to that old yellow hair man to shut F-UP. he does not know a s**t.
    HE'S NOT TRUMP SUPPORTER. HE'S TRUMP D**K S**KER
    D I S L I K E ! W E A R E H U M A N S N O T E V E R Y T H I N G S H O U L D P A I R E D T O R E L I G I O N .

  7. As a legal latino trump supporter , if youre legal im cool with you, if youre not, you gotta go simple as that, you violating the law and i dont respect that

  8. That old white guy just looks like a trump supporter. Like, if I saw him walking down the streets, I'd instantly think he is a trump supporter lmao

  9. Jane Elliot said it best in her "Brown Eye/Blue Eye" experiment. "White peoples #1 freedom in the United States is the freedom to be totally ignorant about those who are other than white. The number two freedom is the freedom to deny their ignorance!" This whole discussion is case and point!!!

  10. That girl in the MAGA shirt doesn't think she is enforcing her freedom or speech, or her freedom of religion. She thinks she doesn't have the MAJORITY anymore. She thinks that she will maybe lose and that thought terrifies her because she has never dealt with it before. Sucks when you can't just run the world, right? You have to actually consider everyone else

  11. “I am in fear of my life because everyday I get death threats”

    well honey, the people your talking to likely get death threats when wearing a tshirt and jeans. Just because of their religion or race.

  12. Am I the only person of color who screamed "join the mf club!!" when the white lady bought up being afraid to leave the house? 🤔

  13. "We're bombing the people in yemen to save them"

    There you have it ladies and gents, the blonde is just hilariously misguided and that sums up trump supporters"

  14. Random but blonde lady is saying that the yogurt thing is saying that figurativily speaking the yogurt is we all are humans and we breath the same air and we should be equal

  15. There all for illegals immigration… yea I’ll pass… the second you allow open boarders… you mess up the country for those who live here

  16. I notice the trump supporters (mostly the lady) often interrupt the immigrants when they’re talking, and then complain about how they don’t have a freedom of speech

  17. I'm Mexican student who ended up on an academic and cultural exchange program during the fall of 2016 in Maryland. In this program 30 students and my self got the opportunity to attend an American University. Election night was one of the most stressful nights I have ever had. Our international coordinator texted us later that night to give us warnings and instructions of what to do in case we might face problems of racism and xenophobia. The following days weren't easy for us. I listened people talking ugly things about us, some of them even showed us the middle finger… And one night a car full of young men followed me several blocks in a row yelling at me to go back to my country.
    For me all this was a tremendous shock because days before the election I had no incidents, however everything changed after that night. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed my stay there despite all this: I met beautiful people and you have an interesting culture. But nevertheless I can agree with some points the immigrants made here. I had fear, I felt prejudiced just because of who I am, how I look and where I come from.

  18. That MAGA lady got me heated bro I can spit facts out to her like oh you have nothing against immigrants and yet you are SUPPORTING someone who does. Just because you yourself do not have the same morals and values as Trump don’t mean you do not support. By supporting him you are supporting what he values because he HAD the POWER to enact his values on everyone.

  19. The title should say ( illegal ) immigrants & Trump supporters! It has nothing to do with the immigrants, they do it the right way. So get it right with illegal & legal.

  20. President Trump said illegal Mexicans but again that part got edited! Just like the disabled video that went around making it look like President Trump was mocking a disabled person, that was edited too. He was not mocking a disabled person. The lying leftist deep state propaganda MSM. Ugh. ( Superman’s Wife)

  21. well i dont say trump is right but mosly immagrants destoroying which country they went i dont talk about every immagrant like this of course there is a lot people working hard really hard but immagrants effecting bad way to places they went it is not racism or something it just true story

  22. It’s funny.
    The blonde lady speaks about how the left took her freedom of expression and speech just because of her political view.

    I can say the SAME thing about the right.
    It’s both ways.

    I completely agree that there shouldn’t be discrimination from either side.

  23. The white woman did something worse then saying "I'm not racist I have a black friend" she said "I know black people I buy things that people who look like you buy"

  24. what happened to the days when everyone supported the president? i mean he was elected for a reason and we should support that. if we all worked together to make changes america wouldn’t be in the situation it is in now. just cause i didn’t agree with obama and didn’t like him doesn’t mean that i went out and attacked him or even posted anything anti-obama on social media. Look at FDR, the dude was in a wheelchair but the media only took pictures that made him look like he was standing up and never made him look weak. The media wanted a strong, unified nation. not a split nation who can’t agree on a single thing.

  25. I hope the YouTubers offered mental health check ins from professionals to the pro-immigration people because they literally had them just sit there while the other people were dehumanizing them. That sounds super tramatic.

  26. the deleted comments are obvious. Its all pro-libtard.

    Fact Check: ILLEGAL alien is the correct term. Legal aliens arent the concern.

  27. white lady: "i dont take things personally"

    also white lady: "you said you worked hard to be here well i take offense to that"

  28. What bothers me about some Trump supporters, is that they try to play victim for getting hate for being a Trump supporter, as if it comes even remotely close to what immigrants or anyone of color has gone through. Oh, you got a death threat, once, for being a Trump supporter? Well, people of color have been beaten down, called racial slurs, been assumed to be criminals, wrongfully jailed, etc. Yes, I understand that a death threat can be scary, but it’s not nearly as scary for being beaten or actually killed for the color of your skin.
    Also, the blonde lady has such a condescending tone. It’s annoying.

  29. the trump supporters acting like americans aren't killers, rapist's, or bad people in general half the time🤦🏽‍♀️.

  30. the blonde lady's logic is so flawed, ''we're bombing yemen to save the people". like does she hear herself talk, how is bombing them going to save them!?

  31. I feel bad for the blonde. She’s been so entitled her entire life she doesn’t even realize how many hypocritical ideas came out of her mouth. She may not be hateful but she’s so blind to racism that she’s apart of the problem.

  32. That white woman is the most ignorant person i think I've ever seen, and glad to have never met. I'd be enthused to find out her profession. Also would not be surprised at ALL to find out she never even received a bachelor degree.

  33. Damn son, that blonde chick kited out of there like she was trying to avoid the pox! Even the older blonde dude who seemed a bit more extreme on his anti-muslim stance stayed behind and HUGGED THE MUSLIM DUDE! Everyone else socialized and got chummy afterwards, but she probably bee-lined to her SUV to apply a gratuitous amount of hand-sanitizer.

  34. Sharia Law is a thing! Look it up! 60 year old with 12 year old wives is not right! Killing your wife just because is not ok!

  35. The government is not interested in ending racism because they have no power to do so. If you feel hurt, unheard, or discriminated against realize you can not change others. Your enemies have every right to have their feelings like you have every right to have yours. You only have the power to change your perception. Assuming people do or say something with good intentions makes you much more likable.

  36. Can Trump Supporters And Immigrants See Eye To Eye?

    Sure can! So long as they are on the southern side of our border and not trying to cross.

  37. It's been a year and everybody seems to agree trump is wrong at this point. How can you deny it when kids are in horrid conditions on our boards with no idea if they will see their parents again? Or how our planet is dying? What about the gun problems? How you can't feel safe going to school or walking into a Walmart anymore? If you still wanna deny it I'd like to hear why.

  38. If youre not White, you will always have to appeal to Whites by doing twice as much as them and twice as good to get their respect

  39. Is it just me or most of these episodes don't actually meet a "middle ground"? It just seems like both sides are always trying to fight for their reasons and who's right rather than trying to understand each other and see their point of view…

    This is the only case where Immigrants should've won tho.
