Donald Trump has already proven himself to have one goal in mind, and that is to have a totalitarian state. And it doesn’t come as a surprise since Trump’s recent executive orders all point towards that direction. He’s taking the people away from scientific facts, he’s doing away with healthcare for millions of Americans, and now he has gone into extreme deportation mode.
Trump’s latest policy, according to leaked copies of today’s executive order, show that he wants to tear apart families. The policy proposes “making public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens.” The policy will increase the power Immigration and Customs(ICE) agents have to deport illegal immigrants.
This means that millions of people that have done nothing wrong in this country, that contribute to society, that help with the economy, and live every day of their life in fear will get sent out. Millions of families will be torn apart.
Under the new policy, ICE agents are encouraged to focus on deporting immigrants who have committed “fraud or willful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter,” which suggests that rather than sending out the few violent illegal criminals Trump is going for peaceful people that have done no wrong. This policy means that ICE will focus on rounding up immigrants for carrying out everyday tasks like driving without a license that are part and parcel of everyday life for illegal immigrants.
Trump cannot hide his xenophobia any longer. The man has made it clear that he wants a country full of white men. He has no intentions in keeping this country diverse. He’s not making this country great, he is slowly killing it. This is truly scary. God help us all.
