Three Takoma Park/Silver Spring students have had their essays on their personal reactions to recent statements made by presidential candidate Donald Trump, featured in the online journal titled <i><b>ArLiJo</b></i> (short for Arlington Literary Journal).

Amanda Bellatin, originally from Peru, states that: "Donald John Trump is trying to make the United States a better country by limiting immigrants in it. I believe that a country with different nationalities and different cultures and traditions makes it a better one. We all learn about each other even if we are from different cultures. Trump wants to prevent this from happening by kicking out immigrants and prohibiting their entrance. I believe that a good presidential candidate is one who accepts people of all ethnicities and wants the country to be a multicultural place, which it already is."

Layth Jamal, originally from Iraq, states that: "Donald Trump is the perfect candidate for that role because he's a worldwide successful businessman who knows how the economy works and has worked with all different kinds of people, so he knows how they live and what they need. Donald Trump is also a self-made billionaire, so he's a perfect example of what people can become in this great nation if they work hard and pursue their goals."

Sashalee Swaby, originally from Jamaica, states that: "Supporters might have experienced situations with immigrants who are not very decent, and this might have given people an unpleasant impression of immigrants in general which leads them to endorse Trump's statements about immigrants."

All three students are currently taking ENGL101A with Professor Robert L. Giron.
