Remember when Donald Trump told everyone that México sends “rapists” to the US? As a Mexican immigrant I took his rhetoric about México sending its worst personally. Since then I have been on a mission to show Trump’s hypocrisy when it comes to immigrants. The latest example of hypocrisy is how Trump talks about Mexican immigrants and those from Saudi Arabia.

Many readers know that a Saudi citizen, an immigrant taking military classes in Pensacola killed three and injured various others in a U.S. military base. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani was in the United States as a student immigrant.

The Saudi citizen was sent by Saudi Arabia to study military tactics in the U.S.

You can argue that Saudi Arabia sent “its best” to kill U.S. citizens at the U.S. military base.

How does that square with the rhetoric that México sends its worst, while Saudi Arabia sends its “best”?

Let that sink in for a moment.

Remember Jamal Khashoggi? He was killed by a kill squad sent to kill him by his own government, the Saudis. His crime? Talking about Saudi atrocities.

But it gets worse. Remember 9/11?

Of the nineteen 9/11 terrorists, 15 were Saudi citizens.

You read that right, almost all of the 9/11 terrorists were Saudi citizens.

Yet Donald Trump has no problem allowing a Saudi air force killer to come to the U.S. and take military aviation courses at a U.S. military base. Hmm, what could be wrong with that picture.

The 9/11 Saudi terrorists used airplanes to terrorize U.S. citizens. A Saudi air force member comes to the U.S. to take aviation classes and kills U.S. citizens on a military base.

Am I the only one that sees a problem with that?

Better yet, tell me again how México sends its worst, and yet Saudi Arabia sends its “best”?

One reply on “Remember How Mexico Sends Its Worst? How About Saudi Arabia?”

  1. The Kingdom is a huge customer for American built military technology. That airman was probably learning to fly F-22s or some other piece of US deathware. Money talks.

    How many poor Saudis do you see in HACEP?
