How to save the world from Trump’s agenda
Posted On August 8, 2021
Trump’s immigration policies have the potential to bring chaos and death to the United States.
But what can we do to stop him?
The Trump agenda has already started to deliver on its promise to deport undocumented immigrants, which will force millions to seek refuge in other countries and make it more difficult for them to find jobs.
It has already unleashed a wave of violence that threatens to undermine international relations and endanger the lives of Americans and their families.
And as we work to prevent the worst-case scenario, we should remember that Trump’s policies and the rhetoric that has been used to justify them have the capacity to bring about catastrophic changes to the fabric of our democracy.
In the days ahead, the president’s allies in Congress are expected to pursue legislation to create a system of merit-based immigration for undocumented immigrants.
The bill is expected to include provisions that would grant priority to low-income workers and individuals who have been in the country less than three years.
Trump’s policies will also force businesses to hire people at a much higher rate than they were before.
But we should also remember that these policies were designed to encourage illegal immigration and not to make America safer.
They will create a pathway for people who have already been here illegally to enter the country legally, which could lead to a higher unemployment rate for Americans.
And they will further exacerbate the divide between the rich and poor.
Trump has pledged to increase funding for the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies that will focus on deporting criminals, drug traffickers and violent criminals.
The United States already has an expansive and powerful border security apparatus that is designed to deal with violent criminals and other threats.
But Trump’s plan will increase that apparatus and increase the cost of enforcing immigration laws.
Trump’s proposal to create an “open border” with Mexico and then force Mexico to pay for it will make the United Sates less safe, but it will also increase the demand for drugs and other illegal immigrants.
And Trump’s proposed budget plan for 2018 does not include any revenue to fund border security.
The administration is also considering a $2 trillion increase in the defense budget, which is in part a response to Trump’s executive order that would allow the military to take military action against North Korea, an escalation of a war that has already claimed over 200,000 lives and cost $1 trillion.
And the president has promised that he would “send a strong message” to North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Un by threatening to destroy the regime.
We should also consider that, in addition to the economic costs that these actions will have on American workers, they will exacerbate the problems facing the middle class and those struggling to survive on lower wages.
And in the future, as we rebuild the nation, the cost to our economy will rise with it.
There are many things we can do to save our democracy from Trump and his agenda.
We can begin by making it clear that we will not accept the racist, sexist, xenophobic and classist policies that Trump has promoted.
We will not tolerate Trump’s continued bullying of immigrants and his attempts to divide our country.
We must make clear to him that his racist rhetoric and rhetoric alone will not protect our nation.
We also must make it clear to the Trump administration that we are with them when they try to silence our voice and intimidate our institutions.
The only way to stop the dangerous Trump agenda is to make sure that the institutions of our society that we love are not intimidated.
I will fight back against Trump’s authoritarianism with every breath in my body.
