Trump rhetoric has created ‘atmosphere of terror’ for immigrants, advocate says

On paper, last week’s raids of immigrants seem routine: Both federal enforcement officials and local activists agree the arrests align with raids that occurred under former President Barack Obama’s administration. But the timing of the raids, less than a month into an administration vowing to crack down on people living in this country illegally, has intensified the fears of immigrants, even those with legal status.

Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., were also advocates of the “pizza-gate” theory, where people believed a family pizza parlor in Washington, D.C., was the home of a pedophile sex club run by Democrats.
