In recent weeks, President Donald Trump’s immigration executive actions have dominated the news cycle. Nothing has created more furor than Trump’s order to impose temporary restrictions on refugee resettlement.
I admit right up front that when the subject is immigration, I’m what the media loves to call a “hardliner.” When or why journalists came to embrace hardliner as their preferred word to describe Americans who believe in enforcing immigration law, I’m not sure.
