In immigrant communities, the fear is palpable, with parents asking themselves if they should risk taking their children to school, or going to work or reporting a crime, lest they become vulnerable to a sweep by immigration agents."

The President retreated, somewhat, from his "zero-tolerance" policy today due to mass public outrage over family separation blackmail to force funding for his Great Wall. "The thought that any state would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable," said a top UN human rights official. But Trump's executive order to end child kidnapping will do little to alleviate the terror of migrant familes over the last few weeks. Allowing children to suffer in their parents' arms is no antidote to the depraved indifference to human rights asylum seekers face. 

Disdain for human rights is one of the defining characteristics of fascist regimes. But human rights law alone is unlikely to protect democratic institutions from a fascist take-over, says Lecturer in Law Eva Nanopoulos; "we are far from immune from the atrocities of the early twentieth century." She urges the necessity to build alternative strategies of resistance.  recognizes that the Trump/Pence Nightmare Must End and invites you to join with thousands of people who have left the confines of their comfort zones to stand together in an unprecedented, sustained resistance to a regime that imperils humanity and the earth itself.

In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!
