On Friday, January 27, President Trump issued an executive order that all but openly brands Muslims as terrorists, unless they can prove they are not. It treats desperate people fleeing all kinds of horrors as criminals — and denies them the most basic humane acts, such as providing safety and sustenance for them and their children. Trump launched a criminal attack on refugees from the non-Muslim world as well.
In response, thousands of people over the weekend righteously disrupted business as usual at airports across the country: welcoming immigrants and demanding the lifting of Trump’s ban.
* What is behind the largest refugee crisis in history…and what does U.S. imperialism have to do with it?
* What are the big lies and “alternate facts” that Trump is spreading? And why is he targeting, and vilifying, people who are in fact victims?
* How would a humane, emancipatory society deal with refugees?
