Letter: Trump is not the only one who should explain himself

Trump is not the only one who should explain himself

Castigation of “The Donald” for his prejudicial remarks towards Mexicans seems appropriate but isn’t the media’s lack of coverage and milquetoast position on illegal immigration just as bad?

With U.S. jobs going to South America and Mexico’s Carlos Slim being among the richest billionaires in the world, why does our media react to the invasion of millions of illegal Latino immigrants like we owe these foreign nationals amnesty and immunity for breaking our immigration laws while stealing U.S. benefits and jobs?

How did Spanish as a second language in the United States ever get enacted without a referendum? This facilitates illegal entry and creates confusion and inefficiency in our workplace. Why are Latino immigrants not expected to obey our laws, assimilate and learn English as with all other nationalities?

If “The Donald” is to be considered the outcast, what about the other players in this scenario?
