Let's just clear this up. Illegal immigrants are criminals. Criminals don't have many rights. They lost them when they committed the crime. Also, the Democrats wanted the shutdown, not the republicans. And immigrant isn't a race. Therefore discriminating against illegal immigrants isn't racist. They do not contribute to the economy, as someone else has previously said, but that does not mean they can stay here. Foreign tourists contribue a lot to the economy, but they can only stay here until their visa expires, then they're hunted and eventually deported. What about the poor and homeless in the USA itself. How do they, American citizens, feel about having people from another country come over and be treated better than them? If republicans are trying to keep white supremacy going, then why is there support in non white communities for trump and the republicans? Oh, because they're not white supremacists. And trump will only be locked up when he does something illegal.
