    An episode of "American Experience" on PBS which can be watched at the link at the bottom of the quote box its entirety for a limited time:

    Though the faulty work of eugenics lasted less than 40 years (discredited during the Depression, when even the rich became paupers), American eugenics influenced Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, and its legacy is with us still.
    "The Eugenics Crusade" tells a chilling story and shows how easy it is to use fear of "the other" to bring about the most inhumane treatment of human beings.
    Pasted from <https://www.ncronline.org/news/media/ncr-today/documentary-tells-chilling-history-us-eugenics-crusade>

    The goal of the movement was simple and, to its disciples, laudable: to eradicate social ills by limiting the number of those considered to be genetically “unfit” –– a group that would expand to include many immigrant groups, the poor, Jews, the mentally and physically disabled, and the “morally delinquent.”...
    Its doctrines were not only popular and practiced, but codified by laws that severely restricted immigration and ultimately led to the institutionalization and sterilization of tens of thousands of American citizens...
    The Eugenics Crusade is an often revelatory portrait of an America at once strange and eerily familiar.

    As an example of the "eerily familiar":

    "Can we build a wall high enough around this country, so as to keep out these cheaper races?"

    -- Charles Davenport , a leader of the American eugenics movement.
    May 1920 in a letter to Madison Grant.

    True enough, but changing the minds of those in this country who subscribe to this garbage is a tall order, since most of them believe with all their body and soul that their leader is a divine being sent from heaven to keep America on his shining path.

    Securing the border has nothing to do with racism half wit.

    A secure border is needed to keep out people like MS13, and they are not even hard to spot. The idiots tattoo themselves head to toe showing who they are.

    Once the border is secure, then we can have a discussion as to who gets in, but until then, we have nothing to discuss because anyone who wants in just crosses the border regardless of what we think or want.

    In Iceland, Eugenics is alive and well as they abort ALL Downs Syndrome children.

    Yet another shining example of Progressive hypocrisy.
