“We must recognize the full human equality of all of our people before God, before the law, and in the councils of government. We must do this, not because it is economically advantageous, although it is; not because of the laws of God command it, although they do; not because people in other lands wish it so. We must do it for the single and fundamental reason that it is the right thing to do.” – Robert F. Kennedy, June 6, 1966
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” – President Donald Trump, January 11, 2018

We should be ashamed.
