One of the greatest asset of the US is diversity because it allows for a more balanced society and prevent "fundamentalism" to polarize public policies. The resignations of the 16 Asian Americans/Pacific Island Americans as advisors to the President sounds a warning about the threat to this diversity. The Berlin wall was dismantled as sign of tolerance of diversity as tool toward reconciliation. Now, a wall will be erected between the US and Mexico and social walls between US and other countries as a message that conservative fundamentalism will guide and therefore, polarize US policies and that diversity is not well tolerated. Such, the resignation is sad.
