The Trump regime has a solution in search of a problem.
According to the Associated Press, the Trump regime wants to deport Haitians allowed to live inside the United States because an earthquake devastated their country, but they need an excuse to deport them.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is reportedly looking for evidence that Haitians commit a higher number of crimes and secretly take advantage of social welfare programs.
The inquiries into the community’s criminal history were made in internal U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services emails obtained by The Associated Press. They show the agency’s newly appointed policy chief also wanted to know how many of the roughly 50,000 Haitians enrolled in the Temporary Protected Status program were taking advantage of public benefits, which they are not eligible to receive. [...]
The request for criminal data for an entire community is unorthodox. The law doesn’t specify it should be a consideration for Temporary Protected Status and the government has never said it would use criminal rates in deciding if a country’s citizens should be allowed to stay under this program. Introducing new criteria is likely to cause consternation among law-abiding Haitians who may feel they are being penalized for the wrongdoing of their compatriots.
There's a wealth of things you could say about this patently-racist broken windows policy, but I was just reminded of Trump's racist campaign against Indian casino operators in Atlantic City.
Trump created a fake "pro-family" advocacy group that warned locals that an Indian casino would bring “increased crime, broken families, bankruptcies and, in the case of the Mohawks, violence." And the irony is Trump's own casino business ultimately collapsed and contributed to plenty of broken families and bankruptcies. You could make a case that Trump personally destroyed Atlantic City. Local taxpayers have covered most of the cost every single bad decision Trump ever made there.
This brand of whisper campaign intended to move public policy is as old as America itself.
