    Well if you mean Thomas Jefferson's policy toward Haiti then I am familiar with it. I understand Trump idolizes Jefferson and he is well on his way to exploiting people just like Jefferson.

    Among the most controversial aspects of Thomas Jefferson's presidency, indeed of his political career, is his policy toward the country that is now Haiti, then known as St. Domingo. While eschewing substantial research on his Haitian policies, most historians condemn Jefferson as a racist who implemented his anti-African American agenda by plotting with Napoleon to "starve Toussaint," Touissaint Louverture, Haiti's ruler, into submission to the French armies. When the strategy failed, and Haiti became independent in 1804, Jefferson allegedly exerted his efforts to force Congress to impose an embargo on Haiti from 1806–1809. This is the orthodox, mainstream interpretations of Jefferson's Haitian policies today.

    I never knew this. That's revolting.

    In general, I agree with the principle that a legal immigrant should be self-supporting or be deported. Obviously this is a complex issue and needs a complex response, but OVERALL, I don't disagree with Trump here.

    What say you?

    excellent.
    Thanks from Madeline
