Rencently at a White House meeting with local California leaders opposed to “sanctuary city” policies, Donald Trump made one of his most offensive comments yet. In front of countless sheriffs, cameras, and members of the press, he said that immigrants “are not people, they’re animals.”1Thats right–the President of the United States referred to millions of human beings as animals.
This isn’t the first time Trump has glibly insulted marginalized communities. From calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” to African nations “sh*tholes”, Trump has rarely missed an opportunity to categorize Black and Brown people as less than human.2To make matters worse, Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio—who have famously supported DACA and claim to care deeply about immigrants have remained mum on Trump’s latest attack.3
Rubio and Graham have had plenty of time to take to Twitter today to insult other world leaders—but have refused to denounce Trump’s dehumanizing attack on immigrants. This deafening silence as millions of people are insulted by the Commander-In-Chief is yet another indicator of how Trump’s disgusting rhetoric has become normalized on the public stage. After all, both Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio were vehement anti-Trumpers; first claiming he was unfit to be President, then falling into line after he was elected—bragging about playing golf with him and proudly endorsing his damaging policies.4
If Graham and Rubio remain silent and refuse to reject the characterization of immigrants as “animals”, they are complicit in upholding a hostile political climate. Their silence enables violence that we see being enacted now on a policy level. Since Trump’s election, the immigration gains activists made in previous administrations have been massively rolled back with several attempts at a Muslim ban, the expansion of ICE agents’ abilities to detain and deport any undocumented immigrant, and the appointment white nationalists to ICE.5 Just this week, Trump’s administration just announced that they’re gearing up to tear immigrant children away from their parents and hold them alone on military bases.6
We know that Trump’s public attacks on marginalized communities have disturbing real-life consequences. The Southern Poverty Law Center reported the second straight year of hate crime increases—largely due in part to “The Trump Effect: with a tripling of anti-Muslim hate groups since 2016 and surges of hate crimes nationwide.7
Now more than ever, leaders must take a stand against the status quo and defend the most vulnerable among us.
On October 5, 1775, General George Washington writes to the president of the Continental Congress, John Hancock, to inform him that a letter from Dr. Benjamin Church, surgeon general of the Continental Army, to Lieutenant General Sir Thomas Gage, British commander in chief for North America, had been intercepted. Washington wrote, “I have now a painful tho’ a Necessary Duty to perform respecting Doctor Church, Director General of the Hospital.”
Washington described how a coded letter to a British officer, Major Crane, came into Washington’s possession by a convoluted route from “a Woman who was kept by Doctor Church.” Washington “immediately secured the Woman, but for a long time she was proof against every threat and perswasion[sic] to discover the Author, however, at length she was brought to a confession and named Doctor Church. I then immediately secured him and all his papers.”
The woman Washington interrogated was the mistress of Dr. Benjamin Church, a renowned Boston physician, who was active in the Massachusetts Committee of Safety and served as a member of the Provincial Congress. In July 1775, Washington had named Church the first surgeon general of the Continental Army, only to find out three months later that he had been spying for the British since 1772. Church faced an army court martial on October 4, 1775.

** Sept. 10, 2022 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert due to concerns that ground beef products in HelloFresh meal kits may be associated with Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7 illness.

FSIS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and state public health partners are investigating an outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 and raw ground beef is the probable source of the reported illnesses.

FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160 F.
