Uncovering The Dark Roots Of Modern Anti-Immigration Policy | MSNBC 1


There are high hopes that President Biden can reform immigration in America, but the only way to find solutions is by understanding what and who is working to stop them. Immigration lawyer and advocate Hassan Ahmad joined American Voices with Alicia Menendez. Ahmad is suing the University of Michigan to uncover sealed papers from the late John Tanton, a man Ahmad says is key to today’s modern anti-immigrant movement. Aired on 04/05/2021.

      @Julie Brown It’s amazing to me that any part of the poem at the Statue of Liberty appears to anger these unpatriotic folks. Sad that they are so filled with hate.

      @CasinoVa Beach And how did your family arrive in America..?

      That was written by a Frenchman and put on a gift that was not solicited by America. It should not be used to describe the ethos of the USA.

      @Dan Pedersen Sweetie it was written by Emma Lazarus an American poet . Perhaps you should consider knowing something about a subject before you make a comment.

      @CasinoVa Beach Sweetie, Emma Lazarus wrote the poem for the statue of liberty, not me. You are the uninformed one🤣😂🤣😂😂

    Interesting, very interesting!

    • Yes it is. Good luck to Mr. AAhmad in his research. Will be a very interesting read when he finishes.

      @CasinoVa Beach What countrys did your family immigrate from? If you are even a real resident of the USA? You are talking silly nonsense here.

    Secrecy + racism + narrow-minded attitudes + ignorance + greed + atheism + power-politics = FASCISM
    Transparency + decency + sagacity + erudite + piety + reflective + democracy = HUMANISM + FREEDOM.

    • Atheism??? The fascist’s motto was “God, Country, Family”. They introduced the compulsory teaching of Christianity in public schools and those progressive racist laws.

      You wouldn’t know know a fascist even if they took over your country and ran it to the ground… oh wait

    • @Robbie Zander i see what you did there.

    Weird that people should be so obssed with ethnicity and base it on such baseless nonsense. Intellegence is not defined by ethnicity and niether is ignorance. The blind BELIEF that this or that group is superior to another is based in ignorance, but then most often blind BELIEF is based on ignorance.

  7. Hey video title, check out the pigs– reeling.

  8. Like we didn’t know this already 🤨

  9. There is an older word for modern anti-Immigrant ideology–Fascism.

    • Dan Pedersen | April 7, 2021 at 2:49 AM | Reply

      You are conflating issues and name calling. This is a sign of ignorance. There are laws that simply should be enforced uniformly. As I said, my wife is a non-white immigrant that went through the process. The problem is we are letting in alot of people that we should not because the standard process is not being used. It is a simple process. Go to the embassy and apply there. Don’t go to the border.

    • So Canada and Mexico are both fascist? They have anyi illegal immigrants laws, just like us

    A hundred years ago, when huge numbers of immigrants came over from Italy, Germany and Ireland, nobody cared… because they were white people.

      @robert caldwell There is a difference between immigration and an asylum seeker

    • robert caldwell | April 7, 2021 at 8:08 PM | Reply

      @Buddy Christ persecution is persecution. The underlying reason may be different, but the result is the same. If you suddenly saw your neighbors disappearing, you might be inspired to leave yourself. The fact is,people immigrate for a variety of reasons. That doesn’t effect our laws. Doesn’t matter where you’re from, or the underlying reason. What matters is, if we have a law,the law is applied equally.

      @Buddy Christ duh

    • Buddy Christ | April 7, 2021 at 8:19 PM | Reply

      @robert caldwell But the underlying reason for coming is important. There are massive differences in the law between asylum seekers and economic migrants.

    • robert caldwell | April 7, 2021 at 9:22 PM | Reply

      @Buddy Christ So,are you going to go gather radishes in California? Look buddy,I’ve got better things to do than argue immigration with you. Quit asking me questions, offer an opinion, and move on. Oh,I know, write your congressman/person, and ask them. I feel there should be,and there is,a legal process for immigration. There are laws pertaining to asylum. Follow the process, and enforce the laws. Your turn,but don’t expect me to respond.

    Does this mean that the general public have no right to have any access to the “plan for development” of the United States?

  15. Robert Wysocki | April 5, 2021 at 9:47 PM | Reply

    The very fact that Tanton’s papers had to be sealed just shows how nefarious both he and his work was.

    The task is to make it impossible for the legacy of whiteness to reproduce itself.

  18. This ties the two main talking points of Trump’s GOP and Fox News together: ‘border security’ and ‘election fraud’ are the two imaginary threats they use to defend their support for a white supremacy agenda. And they use secrecy to hide the evidence of their big lies.

  19. How are illegal aliens supporting themselves? Is the US beginning to reward those that break the law?

  20. Send them to Israel to be loved by ” Gods chosen people”
