Jennifer Rubin: Nixon went to China. Maybe Trump will go for ‘amnesty’ 19.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
President Richard Nixon, the quintessential Cold Warrior, could pull off an opening to China because his anti-communist credentials were never in doubt. President Donald Trump, the quintessential anti-immigrant xenophobe who called Mexicans “murders,” exploited victims of crimes allegedly committed by illegal immigrants and vowed to enact mass deportation, could be the one to bury the anti-immigrant right’s agenda and its incessant crusade against “amnesty,” which amounts to any immigration stan... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Trump's "Victims of Immigration Crime" Hotline Is as American as It Gets 28.5.2017 Truthout.com
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer in Calexico, California, March 21, 2005. From "Neighborhood Watch" programs to crime hotlines, the US justifies profiling by creating an army of snitches. (Photo: Ann Johansson / The New York Times) The Trump administration's immigrant-baiting crime hotline draws on a longstanding US tradition of making civilians responsible for surveilling each other. By creating an army of snitches, the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies can justify racial profiling by declaring that they are merely following up on intelligence provided by "our fellow citizens."

Cass Sunstein: Yes, Trump is making xenophobia acceptable 27.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
In the U.S. and Europe, many people worry that if prominent politicians signal that they dislike and fear immigrants, foreigners and people of minority religions, they will unleash people’s basest impulses and fuel violence. In their view, social norms of civility, tolerance and respect are fragile. If national leaders such as President Donald Trump flout those norms, they might unravel. The most careful work on this general subject comes from Duke University economist Timur Kuran, who has studi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

The Pitfalls of "Buy American" 25.5.2017 Truthout.com
Backed by a huge banner reading "Buy American -- Hire American," President Trump declared in March that his administration would make the US the "car capital of the world" again. "For decades, I have raised the alarm over unfair foreign trade practices that have robbed communities of their wealth and robbed our people of their ability to provide for their families," Trump said. "They've stolen our jobs, they've stolen our companies, and our politicians sat back and watched, hopeless. Not anymore." Who is "they"? Based on the president's previous comments, two safe guesses are Mexico and China. Since the inauguration he has been pushing to restrict trade and immigration. Meanwhile Auto Workers (UAW) President Dennis Williams has announced that his union will launch a new "Buy American" campaign. US history has seen at least three waves of "Buy American" fervor. Chris Brooks interviewed Dana Frank, history professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and author of  Buy American: The Untold Story ...

Neoliberal Investment Banker Macron Defeats Openly Xenophobic and Racist Le Pen in French Election 8.5.2017 Truthout.com
Former investment banker and political centrist Emmanuel Macron has been elected president of France in a landslide victory over far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. Macron won over 66 percent of the vote. Even though Le Pen lost, she received nearly 7 million votes -- more than any other candidate in the history of her party, the anti-immigrant National Front. Le Pen had campaigned on an openly xenophobic and racist platform, calling for France to crack down on immigration and leave the European Union. Macron ran on a pro-trade and EU agenda. We speak to the French human rights and civil liberties activist and researcher, Yasser Louati. He recently wrote an article titled "French Elections: Marine Le Pen or Emmanuel Macron?
