British born actor Alan Cumming attacked Americans who oppose open borders on accusing them and their President of racism in a new op-ed published by NBC news.

He also unleashed a seeming conspiracy theory that President Trump somehow 'brainwashed' his supporters into supporting anti-immigration policies.

As Breitbart reports:

Cumming, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Scotland, assailed and generalized Americans in an op-ed published by NBC News in which he conflates supporting immigration laws with being a racist. The actor also sets up a series of base assumptions and straw men that he then knocks down to scold anyone who wishes to put limits on immigration...

But to Cumming, people who support limits and regulations on immigration are just “racists.” And it is all Donald Trump’s fault:

I see that all the time: Things that are being said about immigration and the ideals of immigration are basically just being used as a thinly veiled form of racism. It’s so blatant. The president himself actually said he doesn’t mind people coming from countries like Norway — white people; it’s the people from “shithole countries” he doesn’t want. It seems almost pedantic and obsolete to actually have to talk about the fact that it’s racism...

This government is trying to brainwash its citizens into believing that the very thing that has made America what it is and has made America great — immigration — is a negative thing. That is complete doublespeak. The idea that if you’re pro-immigrant, you’re anti-America, and if you’re anti-immigration, you are pro-America is completely wrong.
