Trump’s Immigration Order Creates Fear

By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The mere mention of the word ICE was enough to drive people in the underground.

The man from the barbershop complained of poor business; the roti shops were empty and those West Indian stores stopped playing the music. What’s the point, they argued? People were not buying. They were staying home. But it’s not only about business.    Continue reading
