Jelani Cobb at the New Yorker explains Trump’s Move to End DACA as Echoes of the Immigration Act of 1924.
By ending daca, President Trump seems to be trying to resurrect a national immigration policy defined by racial engineering.
In the innocent days of 2015, when it was not yet apparent what kind of threat Trump posed to global stability, it was easy to laugh off his grandiosity, to lampoon his grandiloquent pledge to “make America great again.” What Trump really wanted, many jeered, was to make America white again. [Scriber: MAWA.] The joke was on us. As the Administration’s immigration objectives come into focus, one thing has become clear: to their minds, those two things have been synonymous all along.
Huff Post reports that Former Mexican President Vicente Fox Tears Into Donald Trump Over DACA.
“Ending DACA is on the top of the vilest acts you’ve pulled off. You’re destroying the legacy of greater men before you.”
He then suggested that Trump was terminating the program, which allows the children of undocumented immigrants to legally stay in the U.S., because he needed to prove himself “worthy” after “TrumpCare failed.”
Fox later posted a 64-second video in which he claimed that Trump had “failed America” by canceling the program, which has now been punted to Congress.
“.@realDonaldTrump cancelled the future of 800,000 kids who are the cornerstone of America and didn’t even had the balls to say it himself.”
“It is the worst action you have ever done against the ones that cannot defend themselves,” he said. “This measure is cruel and heartless, worse than any machine. You’re cancelling the future of 800,000 children and young people.”
Fox said that the “future of any countries is in the minorities which will be majorities in a few years” and warned Trump that he “cannot stop the change, the progress, the future of that great nation.”
