Donald Trump (Pharaoh), the Book of Exodus, and the Latina/o Immigrant Community

A modern day translation of Exodus 1: 8-14 (Contemporary Chican@ Version).

Now a new president arose over the United States, who did not know César Chávez. Donald Trump said to his people, “Look, the Hispanic people are more numerous and more powerful than we. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, or they will increase and, in the event of an escalated war on terror, join our enemies, fight against us, and take back the land that was once theirs. Therefore they set taskmasters over them to oppress them with forced labor. They built supply cities, Los Angeles and New York, for the president. But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread, so that the white nationalists came to dread the Latinos. The white nationalists became ruthless in imposing tasks on the Latinos, and made their lives bitter with hard service in construction and domestic service and in every kind of field labor (making California the top agricultural producer in the world). They were ruthless in all the tasks that they imposed on them…Exodus 1: 8-14
