doesn't see Latinos as AmericansPresident Conald Trump's bigoted hatred of Latino immigrants has been clear from the beginning. Now his administration is aggressively persecuting Latino citizens as well.Imagine how they and their American families must feel – and how their distress must make Trump and his fellow xenophobes feel warm inside.Denial of passports effectively renders the victims stateless – meaning they cannot travel outside the country, because they would not be readmitted – and potentially vulnerable to being deported. The Trump administration simply doesn't see Latinos as full-fledged Americans.These same midwives, however, also delivered many more Latino babies, at least tens of thousands, who were legitimately born in the United States.The Trump administration appears to be denying passports simply because the applicant is Latino, was born in south Texas and was delivered by a midwife – something the federal government explicitly promised not to do in a 2009 court settlement with the ACLU.Suddenly, because of your Latino heritage, your core identity is challenged and your right to live in the United States is threatened.
The table is set for Democrats
to take the House
Trump can’t make America white again
Democrats must not defeat themselves, again
