tattoo the following on our brain as “WE” are allowing

It is most timely “WE” choose to tattoo the following on our brain as “WE” are allowing Trump to move inexorably in that direction…

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Socialist.

 

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

 

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Jew.

 

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

 

Leaked Trump order proposes deporting legal immigrants who use social services

 

By Joan McCarter    Be still whatever Paul Ryan has that passes for a heart! Popular vote loser Donald Trump is working on another immigration restriction and this one is right up Ryan’s alley: punishing the poor.

 

The Trump administration is considering a plan to weed out would-be immigrants who are likely to require public assistance, as well as to deport—when possible—immigrants already living in the United States who depend on taxpayer help, according to a draft executive order obtained by The Washington Post. […]

While Trump’s immigration ban last week focused on national security and preventing terrorism, the new draft orders would be focused on Trump’s campaign promises to protect American workers and to create jobs, immediately restricting the flow of immigrants and temporary laborers into the U.S. workforce. The administration has blamed immigrants who end up receiving U.S. social services for eating up federal resources, and it has said immigrant workers contribute to unemployment among Americans who were born in the United States.

“Our country’s immigration laws are designed to protect American taxpayers and promote immigrant self sufficiency. Yet households headed by aliens are much more likely than those headed by citizens to use Federal means-tested public benefits,” reads one draft order obtained by The Post, titled “Executive Order on Protecting Taxpayer Resources by Ensuring Our Immigration Laws Promote Accountability and Responsibility.” The draft order provides no evidence to support the claim that immigrant households are more likely to use welfare benefits, and there is no consensus among experts about immigration’s impact on such benefits or American jobs.

Yes, you read that right: This is about deporting legal immigrants.
