There are two events that have occurred during the past one hundred years that are similar in how they will affect the lives of millions. There are the two countries involved: Germany and America. Hitler said he wanted all Jews gone from the Reich and he didn’t care where they went. The president’s goal is to all of the people who are not legal citizens deported period. Hitler had the Gestapo, and now we have ICE. The only thing that changes in life is the date on the calendar. The disruption of the family due to world events continues. Europe is seeing increasing numbers of migrants from the middle east and Africa who are overwhelming the social services and the culture of Europe. The surge of humanity continues on both sides of the Atlantic ocean.
America’s problem concerns the fact that there are millions of people living here as our neighbors and sometimes co-workers. They own homes and businesses. The president has empowered ICE to arrest and deport anyone who comes under their radar for something as simple as a traffic ticket. California is a sanctuary state for the undocumented and will surely pay a price for its stand on this subject. Agriculture is a multi-billion industry in the golden state. I believe the cost of food that is not harvested by immigrants will bring an honest view of reality about the cost of living that will mostly affect those at the bottom of the economic ladder. Access to food will be a powerful weapon in the future and those in power has known this forever.
