Dear Filipinos Who Are U.S. Or Dual Citizens:
What makes you think that Donald J. Trump truly cares about you?
His record is an open book: he has tagged Mexicans as criminals or rapists and Muslims as terrorists, making little distinction between those who are foreigners and those who are U.S. citizens.
He has accused the Chinese of inventing the concept of global warming to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.
He disrespects women, despises people with disabilities, and wants to take away the healthcare of millions of Americans.
He wants to take away a woman’s right to choose and LGBTs’ choice of who they want to marry.
He wants to place seniors’ security and health during their years of retirement in the hands of private entrepreneurs and profiteers.
He says that NATO is obsolete and that the United Nations is nothing but a political game.
So, you think that in his vision of “Making America White again,” and “Making America sick again,” he’d care about your rights as a naturalized citizen, or more so as a dual citizen? As a Filipino American?
We didn’t think he was serious when he said he wanted to build a wall to keep Mexicans out of the U.S. We thought he was just grandstanding when he said he’d like to create a Muslim registry. What makes us think he’ll not come up with other crazy ideas like ending naturalizations altogether, or even invalidating dual citizenships?
Oh, and for many of you who have relatives in the Philippines employed under BPOs (Business Process Outsourcing), be prepared to come to their aid when they start losing their jobs, or find it impossible to find one.
So when Donald J. Trump takes his oath as your president this week, say a little prayer, and keep vigil always…
