Trump tweeted about a “breeding concept” in sanctuary cities.
From this CNN analysis:
“Taken literally, the most likely explanation is that he’s talking about sanctuary cities as places where undocumented immigrants breed.
If that’s right, there’s a racial undertone in the comment should slap you in the face.
Fear of immigrants from certain countries “breeding” has been a staple of nativist thought for hundreds of years. The “breeding” fear has been affixed to Jews from Eastern Europe, Catholics from Ireland and Italy, Chinese and, now, Latinos, Filipinos, Africans and Haitians. This is dog-whistle politics at its worst.
“Breeding” as a concept has an animalistic connotation. Dogs and horses are bred. So his use of it is, at best, dehumanizing to the immigrants he appears to be referring to.”
