Fight to end Trump’s Capitalism

President Trump is the son of a racist Klu Klux Klan member. Trump inherited a white nationalist world view and has pursuant to his views discriminated repeatedly in his rental properties in violation of Federal and State open housing laws. Trump companies have been found quality of this activity especially in the New York city metropolitan area. Upon becoming president Trump has sought to shape immigration laws to his racist views. Trump attacked “ chain” migration whereby immigrants can sponsor relatives. His attacks on chain migration did not, however, apply to his wife bringing her parents from eastern Europe. Instead, Trump applies this anti-immigrant policy to people of color from the southern hemispheres whose countries Trump famously referred to as “shithole” countries. Trump has changed the immigration policies in the following ways:

  • Banned nationals of eight countries, most majority-Muslim, from entering the United States.

  • Reduced refugee admissions to the lowest level since the resettlement program was created in 1980.

  • Reversed the decline in arrests of unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. interior that had occurred during the last two years of the Obama administration.

  • Cancelled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which is currently providing work authorization and temporary relief from deportation to approximately 690,000 unauthorized immigrants brought to the United States as children.

  • Ended the designation of Temporary Protected Status for nationals of Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan, and signaled that Hondurans and possibly Salvadorans may also lose their work authorization and protection from removal in 2018.

  • Imprisoned 15,000 and counting children with many in tents in the Southwestern desert where temperatures exceed 120 degrees F.

  • Lost the records of 3,000 children many of which cannot as a result be reunited with parents.

The racist anti immigrant policies of the Trump administration extend to the comical demands of a border wall. A wall that will never be built. Trump represents a rising fascist movement of the right in America and this must necessarily be defeated and never allowed to rear its ugly face in America ever again.

What is needed is a mass movement of opposition with demonstrations, civil disobedience, and every imaginable act of resistance. Without such a movement, the depravity of the Trump administration and the underlying racism of capitalism will continue. Racism has always been used by big business capitalists to divide and conquer workers movements in the United States. Henry Ford famously created two towns in suburban Detroit. One was created by Ford as a city for Ford’s white workers called Dearborn. The second city Ford created was called, by him, Inkster as a pun on the fact that it was to be for all his black workers. These cities continued to be racially segregated until the late 1960’s with what were known as covenants to the deeds. These legal covenants prohibited property in Dearborn from being sold to anyone but white people. Eventually, the Supreme Court invalidated these restrictions but the Detroit suburbs remain today among the most racially segregated places in America. But Ford was not the only industrialist to practice pitting one group of workers against another in order to divide workers along lines of race, sex, national origin and other irrelevant factors. Such discrimination will not end until we wipe capitalism from the face of the earth.

All people must, for the sake of their humanity end the degradation promulgated by the rich against everyone else. Trump’s immigration policies are merely a reflection of the hate promulgated by the capitalists. But we can unite and defeat them as we are many and they are few. We must start by taking the fight to the streets and say such divisions and hate started by the bosses will not stand.
