This is where the left is on this issue now. If you’re not basically for open borders, you’re a racist.

Ithaca College Republicans called racists for anti-illegal immigration statement

The Ithaca College Republicans faced massive backlash and were accused of supporting racism following a strongly worded statement the group put out in support of stricter immigration policies following Mollie Tibbetts’ murder.

In their Sept. 4 statement, “Mollie Tibbetts unable to begin fall semester after illegal immigrant murders her,” the Ithaca College Republicans condemned illegal immigration and motioned for stricter border policies. They also mentioned Tibbetts is “just one of a long list of American citizens who have been slain by the viciousness that is illegal immigration.”

“Illegal immigrants come to our country and have no respect for the rule of law. They smuggle in drugs, dismantle communities and abuse the welfare state,” the statement added. “The role of government is to protect its citizens and uphold the rule of law, this starts with protecting the border and enforcing a strict immigration policy.”

They ended their statement by quoting President Donald Trump, who said: “Mollie Tibbetts, an incredible young woman, is now permanently separated from her family. A person came in from Mexico illegally and killed her. We need the wall. We need our immigration laws changed.”

In response, a Sept. 12 editorial in the campus newspaper The Ithacan slammed the College Republicans for their statement.
