"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.

President Donald Trump attends a roundtable discussion in the Cabinet Room of the White House on February 6, 2018, in Washington, DC. (Photo: Mandel Ngan / AFP / Getty Images) Trump may not currently be in possession of storm troopers or planning genocidal acts, but he represents a form of fascism that is distinctive to the United States and needs to be remembered, analyzed and engaged for the lessons it can teach us about the present. While these ghosts of fascism can be terrifying, they can also educate us and imbue us with a sense of civic justice. President Donald Trump attends a roundtable discussion in the Cabinet Room of the White House on February 6, 2018, in Washington, DC.
