Trump is now revoking the passports of American citizens. It's straight-up racist.

It seems like every day brings another outrageous story of the Trump administration’s racist policies, but even in a year that brought us children separated from their parents at the border and held in cages this story from the Washington Post on Wednesday stands out as a dark moment for American history.

The report revealed that Trump’s State Department is now denying passports to US citizens of Hispanic descent who live near the US-Mexico border, bringing their citizenship into question.

The story reports: “The Trump administration is accusing hundreds, and possibly thousands, of Hispanics along the border of using fraudulent birth certificates since they were babies, and it is undertaking a widespread crackdown.”
------
This kind of behaviour is perhaps dismally unsurprising, coming as it does from a president who began his campaign by calling Mexicans “rapists”. The policy of separating the children of illegal immigrants from their parents at the border was itself completely indefensible and monstrous.

But the fact that American citizenship, an American birth certificate, is no longer any bar to being targeted by Trump’s enforcement agencies is a sign that we may have entered a dangerous and dark new phase.

One has to wonder, what next after this..... how far are they going to take this? What happens when the inevitable court injunction comes to put a stop to this...what will they do to these citizens then?

This???


Or this???

2. Trump might as well revoke Obama's passport while he is at it......


Because he may have stated Barack Obama was born in the US, but he NEVER produced the evidence his Investigators found in Hawaii, nor issued an apology to Pres. Obama, or the country for his racist position.

This is DEPLORABLE behavior coming from this illegitimate president.

5. He is implementing our Nuremberg Laws

by executive decree:

...after the Nazis seized power in 1933, they began to implement their policies, which included the formation of a Volksgemeinschaft (people's community) based on race. Chancellor and Führer (leader) Adolf Hitler declared a national boycott of Jewish businesses on 1 April 1933, and the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service, passed on 7 April, excluded non-Aryans from the legal profession and civil service. Books considered un-German, including those by Jewish authors, were destroyed in a nationwide book burning on 10 May. Jewish citizens were harassed and subjected to violent attacks. They were actively suppressed, stripped of their citizenship and civil rights, and eventually completely removed from German society.
