From the outset, the rearguard movement that is Trumpism has been honest, at least, about its intentions to deliver the United States back to an earlier era in its history. We have heard this sort of appeal to an Edenic past from conservative politicians for decades—for so long, in fact, that those who wished to avoid the more alarming implications of Donald Trump’s resentment agenda could see him as simply a more rough-hewn version of that variety. They imagined him capable of the fabled …

Defend ‘Dreamers’

by Houston Chronicle Staff
Septiembre 5, 2017
Phew! Don’t you feel better? And safer? And more principled?
No, we’re not talking about this community’s heroic response to Harvey. We’re responding, sarcastically, to President Donald Trump’s hypocritical decision regarding the Obama-era executive order known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. The order provides so-called Dreamers two-year work permits and a reprieve from deportation.
 On Tuesday, the president took the Pontius Pilate approach to the plight of DACA recipients, nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who were brought to this country as children.

As the fallout from Hurricane Harvey continues, a potential public safety crisis has emerged affecting Houston’s nearly 600,000 undocumented immigrants. President Trump could announce as early as today that he will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which provides legal status for some 85,000 Houston residents and nearly 800,000 people nationwide. Without the status, many residents will be unable to work and rebuild after the storm.

Immigration helps our economy

Immigration has dominated local news of late, from the so-called “Muslim” travel ban to the potential deportation of Iraqi Chaldean Christians who may face ethnic violence if deported. These are headline-grabbing issues and unfortunate value statements about what Americans aspire to be as a nation — presenting an America in fear and disengaging from the world. But what has been undeniably missing from the headlines is an analysis and discussion of the negative economic impacts provoked by Trump’s immigration policies.

The Immigration Effect

President Trump has promised to increase U.S. economic growth – in fact, he’s banking on it. The budget he proposed to Congress in May assumes a 3 percent growth rate, and the White House website promises a return to 4 percent annual economic growth. Both predictions are far higher than the roughly 2 percent growth rate assumed by the Congressional Budget Office or the Federal Reserve.

While partnering with the federal government around immigration enforcement may seem like a “free resource,” local law enforcement and taxpayers need to be clear that when they partner with ICE, it will cost them.
In The Cost of Crimmigration: Exploring the intersection between criminal justice and immigration, the Justice Policy Institute explores the financial and social costs connected to increased participation by local law enforcement in enforcing federal immigration laws.

A decision by the Trump administration to delay and possibly rescind an Obama-era rule could cause the U.S. to fall behind other countries in attracting immigrant entrepreneurs who bring investments and create jobs, experts say.
The so-called International Entrepreneur Rule that the Obama administration introduced in August 2016 aimed to grant parole visas for up to five years to qualified immigrant entrepreneurs.

Social workers and lawyers say deportation raids targeting teen gang members are misguided

By Julienne Gage
Julio 25, 2017
What do they think they’re accomplishing by doing that?” she asks under her breath as two of her teenage male Latino co-workers bag groceries at neighboring registers. “Most of us are here to work hard. Just because you see kids with tattoos hanging out in parks or at the movies, it doesn’t mean they’re going to jump you. Authorities should put their efforts into arresting the people who really push all this criminal business.”
