Fear, hope and deportations

In this Washington Post article, Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan look at white working class support for President Trump's immigration enforcement binge and diatribes against "anchor babies."  The story focuses on the views of North Texas school bus driver Tamara Estes.  It offers a sobering -- and well worth reading -- assessment of the reasons why some low-and medium skilled white workers support Donald Trump's immigration policies.  I wonder what the chances are of American workers being better off with mass deportations of Latinos.
