Hi! My name is Abby Harari and I am a sophomore at the University of Maryland College Park. I am a public relations major, and hope to eventually work in the entertainment industry. As someone who reads the news every day, I have noticed the rise in discussion of Trump’s immigration
I am in extreme opposition to Trump’s immigration plan. In my opinion, this ban is fueled by racism and ignorance. Not only is it prejudice to an entire group of people, but it is economically impossible as well. This country is build on the foundation of immigrants.
This ban strikes a personal nerve because my dad immigrated from Israel 25 years ago. He is now a citizen of the United States. He came here with the American Dream. Trump has now threatened the American dream for millions of immigrants, and we must fight back.
