Donald Trump is more than unabashed letting his racism and white nationalism run rampant. He solidified that point today when it was reported by Politico that he wants to appoint Julie Kirchner to lead the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) — which is the agency in charge of processing immigration and naturalization.
This is quite the revelation considering that Kirchner, who is already serving as the ombudsman of the agency, used to be the leader of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). FAIR is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center “because it promotes hatred of immigrants, especially non-white ones.”
John Tanton, a proud white supremacist, and eugenicist — a group of people that aim to “cleanse genetic quality” of humans by excluding “inferior” groups and promoting “superior” ones — founded FAIR in 1979. Tanton has said that the immigration policies implemented by the US must preserve “an ethnic white majority.” The Pioneer Fund, a group that supports “race betterment” by safeguarding the genes of people “deemed to be descended predominantly from white persons who settled in the original thirteen states prior to the adoption of the Constitution,” has also shown their support for FAIR.
USCIS is currently under the administration of Francis Cissna, but his ousting is expected by this week’s end. Reports indicate that no final decisions have been made in regards to his replacement, but that Kirchner is definitely a contender as well as Trump’s first pick.
This comes as just one leg of Donald Trump’s latest attempt to completely dismantle and rebuild the entire Department of Homeland Security — which he seems to be planning to refill with his own hand-picked batch of villains, fully prepared to stoop to the lowest and harshest forms of cruelty under Trump rule.
It’s clear that Trump is so confident in himself and his dictatorial control of this nation that he can brazenly promote the leader of a hate group into a position of power with not so much as an eyelash bat.
