A ray of light shined in Arkansas during a town hall meeting with anti-immigrant Senator Tom Cotton, as a 7-year-old boy called out the elected official for supporting Trump’s border wall.
“I’m Toby,” the boy spoke into the microphone after Tom Cotton asked for one last question. “Donald Trump makes Mexicans not important to people who are in Arkansas who like Mexicans, like me, my grandma,” Toby continued, “and he is deleting all the parks and PBS Kids just to make a wall … and he shouldn’t do that.”
The full exchange can be seen in the video below:

Tom Cotton’s response offered no comfort to Toby.
The Senator, who is likely to replace former-Alabama Senator Jeff Beauregard Sessions as the Senate’s chief immigrant basher, is one of Donald Trump’s strongest supporters and his immigration proposals are even darker that Trump’s.
I guess that Cotton’s idea of the “fabric of America” being a “melting pot,” not only exclude PBS Kids but also immigrant mothers like Lupita.
