  1. DACA Youth: Trump said that he would end President Obama’s executive order setting up the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (SE) program for youth who came to the U.S. as children. It may be ended abruptly. This is a federal program allowing qualified undocumented youth to apply for deferred action on possible deportation and giving them work authorization and educational opportunities in two-year renewable segments. They will lose jobs and scholarships that allowed many of them to attend college and start careers. They will be vulnerable to deportation, as some 800,000 applicants had to give personal information, including their home addresses in the process. There are nearly 1,000 DACA youth in Mississippi. WE URGE ALL DACA YOUTH TO CONTACT THEIR ATTORNEYS, SERVICE AGENCIES, OR MIRA–WHOEVER HELPED THEM APPLY–FOR ADVICE AND ASSISTANCE. FURTHER, WE URGE THEM TO TALK WITH THEIR SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND/OR THEIR EMPLOYERS AND ASK THEM TO PREPARE A LETTER TO THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND POLITICAL OFFICIALS URGING THEM NOT TO END THE PROGRAM. Click here for critical information for DACA recipients from Northwest Immigrant Rights Project
  2. The Wall: Trump has promised to start construction right away on a massive wall across the Mexican/U.S. border that was the rallying cry of his campaign. That will take action from Congress, but other actions he can implement with a stroke of a pen. Rep. Filemon Vela, D, Texas, who represents the Lower Rio Grande Valley along the border, in a September 24, 2016 CNN interview, when asked about the wall, responded, “Mr. Trump, you’re a racist, and you can take your border wall and shove it up your a–. (See November, 2016, Texas Monthly article, “Up Against the Wall”).
  3. “Criminals”: Trump said he will round up, arrest and deport what he claims are two million undocumented immigrants with criminal records. He would ramp up enforcement with widespread raids in communities and workplaces.
  4. Asylees: Trump wants to increase detention centers (privatized, of course), along the border for unauthorized crossers, ending the Obama administration’s policy of releasing many families who have come fleeing violence in their Central American countries; so they can seek asylum in immigration courts.
  5. “Sanctuary Cities”: Trump says that he will punish municipalities who have enacted ordinances curbing their cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by withholding federal funding to those cities. Jackson, Mississippi? One of the bills killed by MIRA’s allies many times attacked Jackson’s anti-discrimination ordinance proposed by the late Chokwe Lumumba and enacted in 2010.
  6. Syria: Trump says that he will block all Syrian refugees seeking a home in the U.S. Mississippi’s Gov. Phil Bryant joined other xenophobic governors refusing settlement of these victims of the bloody war in that country. He will start “extreme vetting” for other refugees, including an “ideological certification” by which they must demonstrate that they share “American” values.
  7. Visas: Trump says that he will ramp up scrutiny throughout the immigration system, increasing inhumane backlogs. They will target people who apply for work visas, tourist visas, ecc. He will make it harder for family members to reunite with relatives in the U.S. He also wants to reduce “legal” immigration from current levels, but that must get congressional approval.
