After hearing the news about Trump's joke about hanging LGBT's and his plan to speak at the Voter's Values Summit, I'm suddenly thinking about quitting school and legally renouncing my citizenship. What should I do?
I think you should do whatever seems like the best option for you. I don’t want to sound like I’m fear mongering but things aren’t going to get better anytime soon and if you have the means to go somewhere you feel safer then do that.
Personally my mom has always has “plans” if things ever get too scary for us (my mom is an immigrant and my dad came here as a refugee, and a lot of our families are here under similar circumstances both documented and undocumented) but this past year I think she’s been even more fearful. We’ve done little things like make sure we know each other’s information and where certain paperwork is if anything happens.
I just… I think a lot of targeted communities are trying to see what we might have to do. Obviously not all of us have the ability to leave, so we find ways that make us feel safer or feel like we have a plan. But I think if this is what’s best for you then you should do it if you want.
