Xenophobia is irrational prejudice. Should people with irrational prejudice be elected to office in the U.S.? No. We need intelligent, open-minded people to represent us in government, particularly when issues like immigration are on the agenda. We won't resolve issues like that if our government's policies are made by xenophobes. Xenophobia is especially inappropriate in the U.S., a nation of immigrants.
Yes, politicians who support xenophobic policies should be elected in the United States, if that's what the people want. If people are concerned about illegal immigration, they should be able to reflect that by electing leaders that are willing to say they are committed to addressing the problem of illegal immigration.
Politicians who support xenophobic policies should be elected in the United States. We should not base our decision on who is elected based on their beliefs. However, that does not mean that we should allow them to do something that would endanger anyone or anybody else in the country with their ideas.
If they win the vote, they win the vote, and this just exposes where America needs to clean up its act and improve itself. I would hope the American people, as a whole, would not elect a xenephobe into office, because of the sheer stupidity it takes to be xenophobic.
People who have a fear of people from other countries should not be elected to a public administration position because they are not fit for the job. This great country of ours is made for equality and fairness to all, and we cannot have any bias that is really noticeable.
