DEARBORN – “When he talks about shutting the door of America to Muslims, all he’s talking about is scapegoating minorities,” Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders told a diverse crowd of local residents at the UAW Local 600 hall in Dearborn. “We will not accept that bait.”
Local 600 Vice President Tony Richard told The Arab American News that Sanders’ speech resonated well with not only the local UAW, which represents 9,000 Ford workers, but with the Detroit community and local Muslim residents as well.
Dearborn Heights resident Fahtme Abdallah said the majority of Arab and Muslim residents should back Sanders over Clinton, because of his record on foreign policy.
“He is not afraid to come out and support us,” Abdallah said. “He is not afraid to go out there and mention Palestine, which is huge in the political world. Everyone shies away from that. He’s not afraid to say that he does not support Netanyahu. I think that’s huge for us…especially for Muslims.”
Others expressed slight disappointment that he didn’t stress stronger points on Muslim and Arab issues, topics he was projected to elaborate on during his trip to Dearborn, a city with a Muslim population of greater than 40 percent.
Sanders is charming the working middle class community of Michigan, which includes Muslims and Arabs.
Sanders will return to Michigan to face off against Clinton in a debate on March 6 in Flint. Michigan’s primary will be held two days later on March 8.
Sanders is an open-borders fanatic who will carry on Obama’s dictatorship and expand it even further. Read his immigration policy – essentially erasing the border and granting amnesty to one and all:
In a Sanders Administration, a legislative solution to modernize our immigration system will be a top priority. In addition, Senator Sanders will not stand idly by waiting around for Congress to act. Instead, beginning in the first 100 days of his administration, Senator Sanders will work to take extensive executive action to accomplish what Congress has failed to do and to build upon President Obama’s executive orders.
Through legislation and executive action, Senator Sanders will…
- Dismantle inhumane deportation programs and detention centers;
- Pave the way for a swift and fair legislative roadmap to citizenship for the eleven million undocumented immigrants;
- Ensure our border remains secure while respecting local communities;
- Regulate the future flow of immigrants by modernizing the visa system and rewriting bad trade agreements;
- Enhance access to justice and reverse the criminalization of immigrants;
- Establish parameters for independent oversight of key U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agencies.
Expand DACA and DAPA
Provide Permanent Immigration Relief to Families (of illegals)
Decouple Local Law Enforcement from Immigration Enforcement
ensure the return of
unjustly deported (illegal) immigrants
End Family Detention
Much more socialist no-border insanity here.
