Trump's Anti-Immigration Regime Takes Shape 22.2.2017 Truthout - All Articles
People wait at the Mexican Consulate in New York, February 17, 2017. Mexican consulates across the country have been flooded with calls and visits from worried constituents about Donald Trump's promise to crack down on immigrants living in the US illegally. (Photo: Todd Heisler / The New York Times) Homeland Security chief John Kelly  issued a memo  to department leadership Monday, outlining how agencies will implement anti-immigration executive orders given last month by President Trump. The guidance broadens the criteria of individuals eligible for removal from the country. It also loosens restrictions on immediate deportations, and orders Department of Homeland Security (DHS) offices to reallocate funding away from immigration advocacy programs. The move also allows for the hiring of 10,000 more Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, and for the dismantling of safeguards erected for undocumented immigrants during the latter years of the Obama administration. Kelly's directive begins to put ...

Arrested for Wanting Ohio University to Be a Sanctuary 15.2.2017
Seventy protestors calling for Ohio University (OU) to proclaim itself a sanctuary campus for those threatened by the Trump administration's anti-immigrant policies were arrested for peacefully occupying a university building. The February 1 action began as a rally of about 300 students, faculty, staff and community members in response to the administration's lack of action in defense of university and community members affected by Trump's recent immigration ban. While discussions around making OU a "sanctuary campus" have been building since his election, Trump's executive order brought the issue to the forefront of attention. OU President Roderick McDavis issued a  January 29 statement repeating the university's typical platitudes  about the issue: I share the increasing concerns from many members of the Ohio University community who are reaching out to me regarding the executive order entitled "Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States" signed by President Donald Trump ...

Translating the White House's White Words 15.2.2017
The words coming from the White House, whether as tweets or executive orders, are invariably full of racialized criminal imagery. The "Blue Lives Matter" and "Transnational Criminal Organizations and Preventing International Trafficking" orders use coded language and themes to make clear that the police under Trump will be working in the service of white supremacy. (Image: Lauren Walker / Truthout ) A recent episode of Saturday Night Live opened with Melissa McCarthy's now- notorious impression of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. This time, a brief new cameo was made by Kate McKinnon portraying the recently sworn in Attorney General Jeff Sessions. After commenting on the battle over his confirmation, McKinnon's Sessions character launches into a discussion of his policy points: "So, we all know there are two types of crime, regular and Black...." McCarthy quickly returns as Spicer to hurry Sessions away from the microphone before any more damage is done. Though the SNL skit was clearly meant to ...

A growing number of asylum seekers are braving freezing temperatures in an attempt to cross from the United States into Canada. Several refugees have suffered frostbite after trekking for hours in sub-zero weather, and aid organizations are overwhelmed. Many of those seeking refuge in areas including Manitoba come from one of the seven countries targeted by Donald Trump's anti-immigration executive order. They say they are worried about being deported if they remain in the U.S. We speak to Clayton Thomas-Muller in Winnipeg, Manitoba. TRANSCRIPT: AMY GOODMAN: Clayton, you're speaking to us from Manitoba, where many refugees have been braving freezing temperatures and trekking through deep snow in an attempt to reach Canada from North Dakota.

Bloomberg View: How French politicians can defeat Le Pen 6.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Marine Le Pen could be France’s next president. Sure, her lead in some polls exaggerates her strength before the field narrows to two candidates — but voters’ discontent with normal politics isn’t subsiding. Failing to take the anti-immigrant, populist insurgent seriously would be a huge mistake. For France’s sake, and Europe’s, Le Pen must be defeated. Her party’s blend of virulent xenophobia and economic statism makes Donald Trump seem moderate. But with her support still building, defeating h... <iframe src="" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
