"Pro-Immigrant" Liberalism and Capitalist Exploitation: Why Corporate Democrats Do Not Support Immigrant Justice 18.2.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Rep. Luis Gutierrez and Rep. Kyrsten Sinema pose for photos with immigration reform activists after a discussion on immigration reform October 23, 2013, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. With the fate of DACA up in the air, Democrats have been relatively silent on the plight of nearly 10 million other undocumented immigrants.

Trump's Campaign of Terror Against Immigrants 9.2.2018 Truthout - All Articles
In these troubling and surreal times, honest journalism is more important than ever. Help us keep real news flowing: Make a donation to Truthout today. The racist extortionist in the White House has issued an ultimatum: either he gets every item on his list of extremist anti-immigrant measures -- or 1.8 million immigrants will suffer. And to show what they'll face, Trump's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is stepping up its campaign of anti-immigrant terror across the country -- everything from a newly official policy to hunt down the undocumented at courthouses to a huge operation specifically targeting sanctuary cities in California. Trump even said this week that he would "love" to see another government shutdown if Democrats didn't capitulate to every last demand, including the "great" wall on the border. DREAMer Juan Escalante rightly called this a "racist ransom note" -- the offer of some form of legal status for 1.8 million immigrant youth in return for the border wall, more Border ...
