  • Trump introduces Border Patrol agent: He ‘speaks perfect English'

    1 month ago - By Politico

    President Donald Trump wanted to congratulate Border Patrol agent Adrian Anzaldua, who the president proclaimed had saved 78 lives a little over a week ago after he arrested a human smuggler. But Trump stepped on his own message when he announced on national television that Anzaldua, whose last name the president didn't attempt to pronounce, could speak "perfect English." Trump has a history of making assumptions about people based on their ethnic backgrounds, including claiming a U.S.-born judge couldn't be impartial because of his Mexican heritage. His commentary on the language skills...

    Trump singled out a Hispanic US Border Patrol agent for speaking 'perfect English' and misnamed the agency in bizarre ceremony remarks

    1 month ago - By Business Insider

    President Donald Trump singled out a Hispanic US Border Patrol agent and seemed to misname the agency in his remarks during a ceremony to honor border and law enforcement officers on Monday.
    While inviting the agent to the stage, Trump said "he speaks perfect English" and mistakenly referred to Customs and Border Patrol as "CBC" several times, despite a teleprompter reportedly having the correct abbreviation.
    The White House did not identify a specific impetus for the event, but Trump issued a vague hit at activists and politicians who promote the movement to abolish ICE, calling them...

  • Trump praises border agent for having ‘perfect English' at event honoring immigration ‘heroes'

    1 month ago - By Think Progress

    At a White House event Monday honoring the “heroes” of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Patrol , President Trump invited Latinx U.S. Border Patrol agent Adrian Anzaldua to the podium to describe how he arrested a human smuggler for transporting 78 undocumented immigrants in a trailer.
    “You're not nervous right?” Trump said as Anzaldua approached the lectern. “Speaks perfect English!”
    Aside from the fact that the comment carried racist undertones - Anzaldua, after all, is a federal employee of the U.S. government - it was a strange, off-color remark to make...

  • Trump Brags That Latino-American Border Guard “Speaks Perfect English,” Repeatedly Gets Name of Border Patrol Agency Wrong

    1 month ago - By Slate
