Punchline: "At the end of this year, I am worried for what comes next:
What comes after tear-gassing children in diapers? As we move into 2019
and prepare for the swearing in of a new Congress, we need to take stock
of the lessons we have learned. We must not allow cosmetic changes to
racist policies to distract us from their underlying animus or their
continued harm to vulnerable populations. We must view the treatment of
migrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers attempting to enter the United
States as the human rights issue that it is. Critically, we must hold
our elected officials accountable for their action—or inaction—on
challenging the Trump administration’s racist, xenophobic zero tolerance
agenda. Immigration is this administration’s chosen vehicle to advance
white supremacy, and we must respond to it as such."
