The US Deportation Industry – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The US Deportation Industry – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

US- Detention Prison

Families are separated without any pity. The parents are in Texas while the children are in New York, or elsewhere. Deportation is a million-dollar industry in the United States. A number of private contractors are rubbing their hands with anticipation at Donald Trump’s immigration policy. The deporting of 12 million undocumented immigrants, and splitting of families, will make a number of businesses rich.

Obama said recently, ‘It is the imagery of Trump’s proposals that will hurt. The sight of children being wrenched away from parents is most troubling. It is un-American.’ It is definitely contrary to the values of America and indeed to any decent society. But this ‘wrenching’ is exactly what is happening under Trump; people are deported for trivial reasons and families are split with little hope of being reunited.

    Dr. Narine, your article reveals a very disturbing image of America. Disaster capitalism is not a new concept, but our profit-making system for handling illegal immigrants and refugees is immoral. Where is our soul, America?

    The U.S. Army Is Quietly Discharging Immigrant Recruits

    SAN ANTONIO) — Some immigrant U.S. Army reservists and recruits who enlisted in the military with a promised path to citizenship are being abruptly discharged, the Associated Press has learned.

    The AP was unable to quantify how many men and women who enlisted through the special recruitment program have been booted from the Army, but immigration attorneys say they know of more than 40 who have been discharged or whose status has become questionable, jeopardizing their futures.

    ETHNIC CLEANSING … by another name?

    Thanks Clyde. In Britain, if you are not White you are Black. There are no shades of color in between. As we have seen from the Windrush evidence, Blacks cannot claim to be equal because the system is designed to promote inequality. The Grenfell fire tragedy is another clear case of neglect against the minority population in Britain.

      All We Have in this World is Hope:

      Unfortunately, Dr. Narine, there is little evidence at the moment to suggest that ‘White-dominated’ Britain (and elsewhere in the world) has reached, or approaching, the threshold where they are willing to officially (and unconditionally) state that everyone born on English soil, irrespective of color, is English.

      The process of assimilation, integration, and acceptance is a painfully slow one and may ultimately be achieved with the passage of time.

      It has been merely a few decades since the beginning of Windrush, following centuries of widespread exploitation and unfettered plunder of the colonies, the brutal abuse and unconscionable degradation of the slaves and their indentured replacements. But the dawn of change will one day appear on the horizon.

      Today, seemingly, change in Britain remains an elusive dream as powerful remnants of the ‘Massa’ culture stubbornly persist.

      But in due course, in Britain, as people of color gradually increase in numbers and then begin to ascend the hierarchy of power, through the portal of education (and determination) the census forms in Britain will inevitably change to indicate that you are defined as English by birth; and not by the color of your skin. This abomination must come to an end!

      Regrettably, there is a long way yet to go before the shackles of discrimination and bigotry are finally dismantled. But deep in the souls of the fighters against injustice burns a raging, inextinguishable fire that will one day raze to the ground the walls of discrimination.

      Ron.

    Thanks Ron, your comments are erudite and to the point. A scenario that plays out daily in Britain, and in America, is one in which the system can randomly convert a person into several domains based on color. Here is a case in point: You are watching the Olympic Games and this young lady Tessa Sanderson is throwing her heart out for her country. She wins the gold for throwing the javelin and wraps herself with the British flag.
    The press raves how this English girl has brought glory to England. A week later, her relatives are seen in Brixton demonstrating and calling for justice from the police. The press describes ‘those bloody West Indians as troublemakers.’ It so happens that Tessa is of Jamaican parentage. The point is that in Britain racism is ingrained in the system, from the media to the usual practice in one’s daily life.
    Windrush, Grenfell, and others, are but symptoms of a much bigger problem: how does one match the statements about equality with the discrimination that occurs on a day to day basis? Theresa May doesn’t have the answer but neither did Thatcher, Heath, or the rest.
