Accomplished Immigrants Invited by Democrats to Trump’s speech in Congress

At least three immigrants who contributed to the well-being of their communities in unprecedented way will be among invited guests to President Donald Trump’s first speech in Congress.

A move is intended to confront US President and his White House that recently issued Executive Order with a ban on Muslim immigrants.

 

Although White House advisor Stephen Miller tried to explain the reason for an unfortunate decision with supposed “terrorist threat” it was clear that such broad-spectrum decision was consistent with Trump agenda. That is an anti-immigration sentiment that borders on racism and a brutal approach, which is based on his approval for aggression demonstrated number of times during his campaign. Although Trump probably have never read his Order (he is television and golf-addict what leaves almost no time for thorough reading and studying), that was written by the duo of other executives Bannon and Miller, nevertheless the document had a Trumpite character.

Since it was however unprofessionally written, mindlessly introduced and chaotically implemented the Court did not encountered difficulties to stop it. Before the Court acted, the consequence of Bannon and Miller actions were widespread suffering, financial lose and emotional stress to many visa-holders. The message that was send through such ill-concealed document could have been the only one: ban on Muslims that has been an element of the Bannon enlighted program. Trump has been always an instrument in his hands since Bannon’s IQ is much higher, his motivations are more sinister and his character much more darker than President Trump himself.

In effect after thirty days or so of this unfortunate Presidency the new White House has presented itself as narrow-minded, fighting and hostile especially toward immigrants.

To send a message to Trump, Democrats have invited the Iraqi-American doctor who discovered elevated levels of lead in the blood of many children living in Flint, Michigan; a Pakistani-born doctor who delivers critical care to patients in Rhode Island; and an American-born daughter of Palestinian refugees who aids people like her family in their quest to come to the United States.

“I want Trump to see the face of a woman, the face of a Muslim, and the face of someone whose family has enriched and contributed to this country despite starting out as refugees,” said Rep. Luis Gutiérrez, D-Ill., whose guest Tuesday will be Fidaa Rashid, a Chicago immigration attorney.

One of the people caught up in Trump’s executive order was Sara Yarjani, a 35-year-old Iranian graduate student studying in California. She was held at Los Angeles International Airport for nearly 23 hours before being sent back to Vienna, Austria, where she had been visiting family.She was able to resume her studies at the California Institute for Human Sciences after a judge halted implementation of Trump’s order.

She’ll attend Trump’s speech as a guest of Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif.

“Mr. Trump needs to see the people he has hurt,” Chu said.

A group of Democratic lawmakers recently wrote a letter to colleagues earlier this month urging them to invite guests who have, despite discrimination, made positive impacts on their communities.
“Mr. Trump needs to see the people he has hurt,” Chu said.
