When Trump uses racist rhetoric and marshals state power to target some minorities, he empowers and informally deputizes dangerous racists across the country who feel emboldened to act on their own, and there are no boundaries to their targets. The sloppiness of the ICE and CBP agents rounding up non-immigrants is mirrored by Trump’s racist followers who attack Muslims, non-Muslim brown people, immigrants, non-immigrant brown people, and also Jewish people. And when Trump doesn’t say anything about it, these violent racists know they have the tacit approval of this administration.
