Trump has ordered his new administration to publish a weekly list of the crimes committed by immigrants.

As he signed the order, Trump read out the names of the US citizens murdered by illegal immigrants.

The order, however, doesn’t specify if this relates to just illegal immigrants, or all immigrants living in the US legally.

But Christopher Hooton has pointed out a likeness between Trump’s latest policy development and an article from Nazi paper ‘The Criminal Jew,’ which published photos of Jewish people who had committed crimes including pickpocketing.

Taken from the book Hitler’s Ethic: The Nazi Pursuit of Evolutionary Progress by professor Richard Weikart, the text explains that "In 1943, a Nazi directive to the German press declared, 'Jews are criminal by disposition.
