Freedom Socialist Party: ‘Take a righteous stand against Trump’s police-state deportation orders’

The Freedom Socialist Party denounces Donald Trump’s Feb. 21 outrageous, inhumane deportation orders, commits itself to defend immigrants of whatever status in every way possible, and urges others to do the same.

Trump directed these orders to be enforced against any and all of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants that federal agents or local authorities round up or merely encounter. In doing so, his administration condemns a significant part of the U.S. population to life under a police state — and not just immigrants without papers, but everyone who might be seen as such.

And what is the rationale for this? On the campaign trail, Trump connected the “problem” of immigration to the so-called fight against terrorism. In fact, his crusade against immigrants is state terrorism. What danger do immigrants pose? The threat of harvesting the country’s fields, cooking its food, raising its children, cleaning its buildings? Trump’s claim that undocumented workers are “threats” is another example of his war on reality.

And he is not responsible alone; he is helping to fulfill a longstanding right-wing agenda. A spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform called his deportation orders “Christmas in February.”

What can supporters of immigrant rights and human rights do?

We can encourage our schools, churches, and community centers to advertise themselves as refuges for immigrants needing sanctuary and open up our homes.

We can demand that our legislators condemn the actions of the administration, refuse to help implement them, and insist that constitutional protections cover every U.S. resident, regardless of status.

We can resist! We can demonstrate, stop buses at deportation centers, refuse to cooperate with police.

No human being is illegal! ¡Ningún ser humano es ilegal!

    My complaint abt covering the Freedom Socialist Party is that they do not do any electoral work at all since 2012 and their half-hearted attempt to garner the Peace and Freedom Party’s POTUS line.

    If IPR wants to give coverage to Leninist groups I would suggest Socialist Alternative.

    Yeah, this is one of those “parties” that seems to really just be an advocacy group with a website. Not really something to cover.

    From a coverage standpoint, it is easier for us to cover parties if we get their emails and/or if they are linked in the IPR blogroll. For some reason that still escapes me, when we had a discussion about which parties to link here, the owner decided that Socialist Alternative and PSL were not what he considers political parties (I disagree). We’ve since added a lot of the Marxist parties as news sources, which their websites/newspapers are, even if we question to what extent they are parties. As for FSP we have ended up on their email lists, which makes it less of a task to cover them.
