The Message of “Send Her Back”

In a presidency full of new lows, the “Send Her Back” mantra could be the most quintessential un-American statement ever made by any President. Telling 4 US citizens of any race, creed, or color, 3 of whom were born on US soil, to go back to where they came from demonstrates an utter lack of understanding of the entirety of US history and what it means to be an American. It is both disappointing to have a President make such a statement and saddening to see masses of people joyfully chanting it. In the face of such poor leadership and behavior, we need to remember where we came from and how this nation became great in the first place. Our melting pot of people and ideas have made us strong, and will continue to guide us through these troubling times!
