Just read this, from Stephen R. Kelly at the Washington Post.
I wonder if they sent us a bill for all that.
The nativists her have gone completely ape-shit crazy. A family of 6 from the Democratic Republic of Congo arrived here a couple weeks ago and the Republicans and the John Birchers and the Teabaggers have gone completely out of their mind. They’re circulating a flyer with a picture of a masked supposedly Syrian person holding an assault rifle warning that we’re being invaded and, of course, blaming on the Democratic governor. It’s crazy enough to get covered by Mother Jones…and by somebody other than Tim Murphy!
Six people. With little more than the clothes on their back. Not even from Syria. And suddenly half the State needs to change its diaper. Can’t blame Trump for all of it. Steve Daines has been rousing that rabble for a couple years now. But still. It fucking humiliating to see that shit.
Some of these nativists-types are embarrassing. Well, all of them, really, when they start wingeing on about immigrants. We have the same thing. It’s kind of horrifying.
It’s the kind of ugly I don’t like to see on my people. Trump’s legitimized it. It going to take a long time to knock that shit back.
I believe you’re right. I also believe we’re bigger than this.
