After President Trump rejected a bipartisan solution to aid so-called Dreamers, reportedly disparaging African, Latin American and Caribbean countries in the process, California Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra said Sunday that Trump was showing himself to be a racist “in every respect.”
“Let me put it to you this way: mental instability, mendacity, having any one of those in the White House is dangerous — having the combination, that is lethal,” Becerra said on “Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace.”
Last week, Trump reportedly asked why the United States should accept immigrants from “shithole countries” during an Oval Office meeting as he rejected a compromise to resolve the standoff over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. The program has provided temporary work permits to 700,000 people brought into the U.S. illegally as children — roughly 200,000 in California, more than any other state.
