SURPRISE! TRUMP TARGETS POOR DEFENCELESS IMMIGRANTS WHILE IGNORING RICH AMERICAN WALL STREET BANKERS

Remind me: it was rich white American males (like Trump) who caused the financial crisis of 2007/8, wasn't it?

The greatest financial crisis since 1929.

Only one banker went to jail, and that was for something very minor.

The two executive orders signed by President Donald Trump on Wednesday at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) constitute an assault not only against immigrants, but against the working class as a whole.

The main order called for beginning construction of “the wall” on the Mexican border that was endlessly promoted by Trump in the course of his presidential campaign, and for an escalation of the criminalization of undocumented immigrants.

These measures are aimed at whipping up xenophobia and anti-immigrant chauvinism in order to carry out a wholesale assault on the democratic rights and social conditions of the entire working class, together with an accelerated transfer of wealth to the corporations and financial oligarchy in the name of “America First.”
