Salceda bats for Trump ban in PH

2

LEGAZPI CITY: Albay lawmaker Joey Salceda is seeking Congress to ban the entry of United States presidential candidate Donald Trump (Republican) in the Philippines for labeling Filipinos as citizens of a “terrorist state.” In a statement sent to The Manila Times, Salceda said Trump’s derogatory remark against the Filipinos that was carried by international news organizations put the people in a bad light. “There is no feasible basis or reasonable justification to the wholesale labeling of Filipinos as coming from a ‘terrorist state’ or that they will be a Trojan horse in foreign lands,” the lawmaker said. The international media reported that Trump warned that immigrants, including those from the Philippines, could create a potential pool of recruitment for “Islamist terror groups.” Salceda said the remark shames both Filipinos and Filipino Muslims as well as oversees Filipino workers who have been recognized as modern-day heroes of the country. He urged Congress to adopt his House Resolution 143 seeking to bar Trump from entering the country as it will be prejudicial to the national interest. Salceda cited an Immigration order that list grounds for barring foreigners from entering the country.

    Donald Trump is billionaire and a U.S. presidential candidate that cannot tell the difference between his mouth and his asshole and they both stink. He is so dumb and ignorant, and he should have known that he, himself, was an immigrant. The only real Americans are the Native American Indians, and the rest of American population are immigrants, and they came from every country in the world. Diversity made the U.S. a very powerful and successful democratic country in the world. I am a second generation U.S Citizen by BIRTH, and many of my friends still proudly call ourselves PINOYS. Our hearts, minds, and the blood flows in our bodies will always be Pinoy.

    Proud Filipinos all over the world should not even be bothered by this dickhead Trump because he is not going to win the U.S. Presidency. Just recently, 50 top GOP personalities said that Trump will put the country in jeopardy if he is elected, and some of them voiced their frustrations that they are going to vote for his opponent.
    To Joey Salceda, take it easy muna because nothing was taken away from us and Trump is just voicing his worthless opinion about us.

    • Sinusulong na rin po na iban siya siya sa United Kingdom kaya baka naisip ni Joey Salceda na dito rin.
