The announcement by President Trump and Attorney General Sessions ending the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program represents a new low in the xenophobic and white supremacist assault on immigrants in our country. This is a transparent attempt to use a vulnerable population as a political bargaining chip: to further limit legal immigration, to further militarize the border, and to further cut taxes for the wealthiest in society.
What kind of system produces these conditions? In the richest country in the history of the world with the wealthy class living like kings of greed and gluttony, how is it possible that little children of hard working people cry from hunger and veterans live on the streets?
The moment in human history that it became clear that one could enhance their social and economic status by demanding that others labor for a share of their resources, there have been poor people. The relationship between those who have and those who do not have has basically not changed.
