Trump: No Worries, DREAMers!

Especial/Notimex/Newscom via ZUMA

Hey DREAMers! Donald Trump has your back:

As always, keep in mind that this is a message to Trump’s base, not to anyone else. The message is: I’m anti-immigrant but I still have a heart. This is precisely the message they want to hear, because it is precisely how they think of themselves. They’re sick of people accusing them of being racist or xenophobic or just plain nasty because they’re opposed to the brown hordes coming over the border. Trump is the only one who understands this, and that’s why they love him.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
