DSA Statement- Close the Camps

 Donald Trump has used divide-and-conquer tactics to divide the working class from the first days of his campaign. And he’s used that playbook throughout his administration, escalating a failed and cruel immigration policy into an all-out war against immigrants, banning Muslims, slamming the door on refugees, and tearing children from their parents’ arms.
That’s why DSA is endorsing a national weekend of action to #ClosetheCamps on Indigenous People’s Day weekend, Oct 11-14. Our national Immigrant Rights Working Group is leading this action in partnership with organizations including the Coalition to Close the Concentration Camps and the indigenous socialist group The Red Nation.

PS: Have you seen our National Political Committee’s statement on impeachment? It makes the connection between Trump’s systematic immigrant-bashing and caging of children and his attacks on the union movement — and points out that when democratic socialists originally raised the call to impeach, they were ignored for months. It’s compelling reading, especially now.
