The president has ordered ICE to begin the process of deporting up to one million people from the United States who have deportation orders from the government from the court system the other part of this situation that should concern the potential deportees is that anyone in the vicinity of those who happen to be also undocumented can can be arrested and deported as “collateral damage” to the arrests. This process will begin this Sunday a day that is related to religious tolerance and lest we forget the racial message of intolerance for people of color who will once again will live in a fear of being arrested and deported no matter what life they have managed to attain in a country that has always depended on immigration to make America a world power and the envy of others across the globe.
America like most developed countries across the globe is an ageing society that cannot survive without what I call” young blood” we will not survive as a society unless there are people to support the millions of “baby boomers” as they hope to age gracefully. The workforce of the present and the future are those who are here already here and are positive in their contributions to our society as a whole.
This coming round up of people that the courts say can legally be deported on top of the Trump administrations to require that anyone counted on the 2020 Census prove that they have a right to be here. The United States as a country and our values as a Democratic society will truly be tested on the world stage especially as we have a election for the next person who will demonstrate to our citizens and the world American society at its finest.
