Robert Reich: Morality and the Common Good Must Be at Center of Fighting Trump's Economic Agenda 20.2.2018 Truthout - All Articles
As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump made a promise to the American people: There would be no cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Well, the promise has not been kept. Under his new budget, President Trump proposes a massive increase in Pentagon spending while cutting funding for Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Trump's budget would also slash or completely eliminate core anti-poverty programs that form the heart of the US social safety net, from childhood nutrition to care for the elderly and job training. This comes after President Trump and Republican lawmakers pushed through a $1.5 trillion tax cut that overwhelmingly favors the richest Americans, including President Trump and his own family. We speak to Robert Reich, who served as labor secretary under President Bill Clinton. He is now a professor at the University of California, Berkeley. His most recent book, out today, is titled The Common Good. TRANSCRIPT JUAN GONZÁLEZ: As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump made a ...

Jorge García is no " bad hombre ." Before being deported to Mexico in mid-January, he was a hard-working, tax-paying landscaper in Michigan. He's also a hband and father -- although now an absent one. Many deportees -- most, like García, good people -- return to countries they no longer know, some of them unable to speak the language. Others are thrt into life-threatening situations . Families and communities fracture; some deportees die. In 2008, Laura was an undocumented Mexican mother of three living in Texas. Actually, she did have one US "paper" -- a protection order issued against her violent ex-hband, who'd subsequently been deported. He said he'd kill her if she returned to Mexico. The following year, Laura was detained after a traffic stop. She told the police officer, and later a Border Patrol agent, her very reasonable ...

"Pro-Immigrant" Liberalism and Capitalist Exploitation: Why Corporate Democrats Do Not Support Immigrant Justice 18.2.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Rep. Luis Gutierrez and Rep. Kyrsten Sinema pose for photos with immigration reform activists after a discussion on immigration reform October 23, 2013, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. With the fate of DACA up in the air, Democrats have been relatively silent on the plight of nearly 10 million other undocumented immigrants. (Photo: Alex Wong / Getty Images) The immigration debate, which teeters between racist vitriol from the right-wing and pro-immigrant discourse from corporate liberals and multicultural elites, deliberately ignores the fundamental issue of exploitation under a capitalist system. Immigrant workers are, above all, a means to turn a profit for both those in the detention and deportation business as well as industries that thrive on cheap labor. Rep. Luis Gutierrez and Rep. Kyrsten Sinema pose for photos with immigration reform activists after a discussion on immigration reform October 23, 2013, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

After Surviving London's Grenfell Tower Disaster, Immigrants May Face Deportation 14.2.2018 Truthout.com
 A number of survivors from London's Grenfell Tower tragedy last June, which saw at least 71 people die in a tower block blaze caused by poor fire safety measures, may now face deportation after the deadline for applying for an immigration "amnesty" passed on Jan. 31. There is also a risk that family members might be investigated and deported. Undocumented migrants living in Grenfell Tower were offered an amnesty period of a year, provided they applied before this deadline. Critics say the deadline was inadequately publicized and that the process risks hampering the forthcoming inquiry into the fire by potentially discouraging and preventing residents from giving evidence. Prime Minister Theresa May announced in Parliament just after the fire that she would not use the tragedy as a way to clamp down on residents' immigration status. She then performed a U-turn and undocumented immigrants were promised only the year-long amnesty. "The  Justice4Grenfell  campaign is outraged that survivors of the Grenfell ...
