Most Americans Support Trump’s Immigration Order, And They’re Not All Racists

As Trump considers fighting the courts or drafting another executive order, it’s important to remember many Americans view things very differently from the so-called mainstream.

Last week, the Ninth U.S Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court decision to halt President Trump’s controversial executive order on immigration. The decision, which many have pointed out as legally precarious, follows weeks of protests, celebrity calls for action (see Tribe Called Quest’s call to “resist” at the Grammys on Sunday), and endless stories of families detained or turned away at airports.

Many Americans have expressed deep distress over an order they feel goes against the shared values of a country made up of immigrants. But as Trump considers fighting the courts or drafting another executive order, it’s important to remember that there’s another America out there that views things very differently from the so-called mainstream. And they aren’t racists or radicals. They are our friends, our family members, our co-workers.
