Donald Trump's immigration policy includes plans to build a giant wall to divide Mexico and the United States, which is all anyone needs to say about Donald Trump. And though that aspect of his policy sounds like something a four-year-old might say, he's also said some really gross, racist stuff, like "when Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
It's the same shallow, vile bigotry these two Boston brothers allegedly cited as the reason why they beat up and peed on a Hispanic homeless man early Wednesday morning. According to the Boston Globe, one of the brothers told police “Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported" when asked why he did what he did.
The Globe reached out to Trump's campaign for comment; Trump told the paper that “it would be a shame…I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.”
Passionate! That's one way to describe it.
