So states Retired Judge, Elsa Alcala.

Quote:
”It has taken me years to say this publicly but here I go. President Trump is the worst president in the history of this country,” Alcala wrote Monday. ”Even accepting that Trump has had some successes — and I believe these are few — at his core, his ideology is racism. To me, nothing positive about him could absolve him of his rotten core.”

Every day with the Republican Party seemed worse than the day before. Trump speaks about brown people like me as lesser beings,” Alcala told the American-Statesman on Tuesday. ”It’s cliche to say, but the Republican Party left me.”

”Trump, Alcala said, seeks to exclude “people who look like me.”

“I thought that maybe Texas state politics at the Legislature might be better than the national Republican politics, but it was more of the same,” she said.

The current Republican Party supports Trump, so I cannot support that party in Texas or nationally. The past Republican administrations were not Trump-like — they wanted an inclusive party — and I appreciate their past support of me, but that is no more,” Alcala wrote.

Including time as a Harris County prosecutor, Alcala said she spent 29 years in government service and loves the United States.

”And don’t tell me to go back where I came from. My relatives have been in this Texas area since it was before the USA and I was born in the USA,” she wrote.

Tough words from a Republican who no longer recognizes her Party.

“we don't need any more white faces that don't want to be a white voice.”

The real reason is that she will now not be held accountable for
' Interrupting ' the laws rather then enforcing them...Just Watch


For a Judge making this an issue clearly sends a message that
she has an agenda.

And the GOP purifies itself to its Trump core, and gets a little smaller.
