'The excitement of the first day of school; children in their best clothes, looking forward to meeting their new teacher. But when school is over, their parents are nowhere to be found. They were arrested by ICE.   The owners of the chicken processing plants are wealthy. They have had labor problems and fought efforts by their workers to unionize. They have been fined millions of dollars for violating the civil rights of their workers. Raids spanning seven cities, six work sites and five companies ended in arrests for 680 people — and underscored an industry’s reliance on foreign-born workers at a time when federal immigration policy is the focus of intense debate. Labor activists say it’s the latest raid to target factories where immigrant workers have organized unions, fought back against discrimination or challenged unsafe and unsanitary conditions.'

Dr. Ravitch asks: "Are the ICE arrests any different than the action of the brownshirts against the perceived enemies of Nazism? The targeting of Latino families by the Trump administration is tantamount to the targeting that was no different than the Sturmabteilung, a paramilitary storm troop detachment dressed in brown shirts. These were Hitler's thugs who violently intimidated Germany's leftists and Jewish population. Hitler used them as security forces at rallies, used violence and threats to purge and assault.

"Labor activists say it's the latest raid to target factories where immigrant workers have organized unions, fought back against discrimination or challenged unsafe and unsanitary conditions."

"Where do you stand?"

and the hypocrisy of this president: "'If you're a good worker, papers don't matter': How a Trump construction crew has relied on immigrants without legal status" "For nearly two decades, the Trump Organization has relied on a roving crew of Latin American employees to build fountains and waterfalls, sidewalks and rock walls at the company's winery and its golf courses from New York to Florida. "
