If Donald Trump had been president when Anne Frank was alive, would he have turned her away?

My blog post today was inspired by this news story: http://www.haaretz.com/us-news/.premium-1.786132

The news article is about Donald Trump’s policy of admitting immigrants.

Everyone knows the story of Anne Frank. How would she have fared if Donald Trump had been president of the United States when she tried to escape from the Nazis?

When the Nazis came to power in Germany, Anne’s father tried to come to America, but he was turned away became he had a criminal record.

But it doesn’t matter why he was turned away. He was Jewish and the Nazis were trying to eliminate the Jews. Anne’s father should have been allowed in and his family should also have been allowed in. His brother, who was also a criminal, was admitted into America. He lied about his criminal record.

I have written, at length, about the story of Anne Frank on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AnneFrank/AnneFrank02.html

  1. Otto Frank was, in the Netherlands, a counterfeiter of ration coupons. He hoarded and profiteered in foodstuffs acquired by use of these coupons. Since he was German, the Dutch let the Germans handle him (and his family, who were also German).
    His city of Amsterdam was riven by starvation during the winter of 1944-45, the one following his deportation. He was safe in a concentration camp by that time.

  2. If they’re criminals,don’t let them in. Live in Texas,you’ll see what I’m talking about. How about Florida. Mariel Boatlift. Castro cleaned out his prisons and asylums. Dumped his trash on us.
    Some of the people in the Boatlift,were law abiding people,just wanting a better life. Hard to separate them,because shit got outta hand and INS started cutting people loose without checking them out properly. Talk about crime rate climbing in south Florida.
    We’re so damned concerned with nailing people that may or may not have been nazi war criminals,that the real criminals ( the illegal aliens),are slipping right through their (immigrations) fingers.
    No,if they’re criminals they don’t get in.
