Former Mayor of "Nazi City USA" Pushes Legislation to Defund Sanctuary Cities 12.1.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Congressman Lou Barletta, co-chair of Trump's Pennsylvania campaign committee, has declined the labor secretary post. Instead, the former mayor and champion of the xenophobic "Illegal Immigration Relief Act" in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, will be spearheading attacks on sanctuary cities -- a cause dear to Trump -- during his next term in Congress. Rep. Lou Barletta arrives in the lobby of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, on November 29, 2016. (Photo: Sam Hodgson / The New York Times) Donald Trump offered Congressman Lou Barletta the post of secretary of labor in his new administration. Surprisingly, Barletta declined. The reason is now clear: Barletta will champion the cause of slashing funding to sanctuary cities in his next term, a cause that is near and dear to Trump's heart . From 2000 to 2011, Barletta was the divisive mayor of Hazleton, Pennsylvania, who championed the " Illegal Immigration Relief Act " (IIRA), an ordinance that would have penalized landlords and business owners for ...

Facing a Trump Presidency, South's Immigrant Advocates Build on Networks of Resistance 28.12.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Immigrants have been the target of hateful rhetoric and actions since President-elect Donald Trump launched his campaign over a year ago. Galvanizing his base with promises to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and to ban Muslim immigration, Trump has dramatically shifted the tone of the national conversation on immigration and raised fears that he'll follow through on his harshest campaign promises. What a President Trump will actually do around federal immigration policy remains unclear. In a recent interview with Time magazine, he scaled back his rhetoric, expressing some openness to  "work something out"  with beneficiaries of President Obama's 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which gives certain undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children temporary work permits and reprieves from deportation. At the same time, Trump has been adamant that he will deport what he says are at least  2 million  undocumented immigrants with criminal convictions -- even though ...
