You can discover yourself in a country that you may not feel part of, or you feel that your [concerns are] being dismissed. So [you have actually had] an enormous amount of insecurity and instability. Contribute to that, someone can be found in and plays on your racial stress and anxieties, and blames a massive amount of this on the ‘other’ from the southern side of the border, and you’re going to have an audience for those views. I generally believe that [the issue] is the exceptionally quick pace of change that’s occurred in the United States that’s gone unaddressed by both administrations, Democrat and Republican politician.
