Fighting for Freedom From Surveillance: Redefining "Sanctuary" for Trans, Queer and Immigrant Communities 30.11.2017
Since Trump's election, several cities around the US have declared themselves sanctuaries. But can a city really call itself a "sanctuary" if it has regressive policing tactics and a surveillance apparatus that disproportionately targets certain communities -- especially queer, trans and poor people of color? Jennicet Gutiérrez of Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement and Hamid Khan of the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition weigh in. Protesters drape themselves in the LGBTQ+ pride flag and Trans pride flag at a dance protest celebrating trans youth in Washington, DC, February 24, 2017.

When the historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., published his bestseller  The Disuniting of America  in 1991, he didn't seriously entertain the worst-case scenario suggested by the title. At the time, the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia were imploding, while separatist movements in Quebec, East Timor, Spain's Basque country, and elsewhere were already clamoring for their own states. But when it came to the United States, Schlesinger's worries were principally focused on the far smaller battlefield of the American classroom and what he saw as multiculturalism's threat to the mythic "melting pot." Although he took those teacup tempests seriously, the worst future Schlesinger could imagine was what he called the "tribalization of American life." He didn't contemplate the actual dismemberment of the country. Today, controversies over hate speech ...

Protect the Dreamers, but Don't Fall for an E-Verify "Compromise" 12.10.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Democratic leaders working with Trump to protect DACA recipients may be unwilling to fund a border wall, but they seem open to concessions on E-Verify -- a system for checking on work authorization. However, universal E-Verify would only drive undocumented workers into the underground economy, costing billions of dollars in tax revenue and mostly benefiting big businesses that use subcontractors. US Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano speaks during a news conference to announce the launch of E-Verify Self Check service March 21, 2011 in Washington, DC.
