It is no secret that the president, the astute business man that he is, is in bed with many of the corporations that secretly run the country thanks to Citizens United. One industry that has really cozied up to the president is the prison industry. These bedfellows have long since shared many a pillow talk but now more than ever has oppression, capitalism, classism and racism become the lullaby that rocks the cradle of elitist greed to sleep.
Trump has reversed Obama-era legislation that scaled back the reach of the private prison industry giving it free reign to run at optimum financial gain. Following the basic tenet of supply and demand, these private prisons hold hostage regular Americans through asinine laws and mandatory minimum sentences in order to stuff their coffers. If that wasn’t enough, Donald Trump has added more gristle by sanctioning the internment of illegal immigrants awaiting deportation.
The land of the free currently boasts the largest prison population in the free world surpassing that of allegedly oppressive Russia, China, North Korea and more. Donald Trump has decided to increase those numbers.
In an interview on 60 Minutes, the commander-in-chief stated that he was looking to deport 2-3 million undocumented immigrants and said he was not against locking them up even if they haven’t committed a crime. He also admitted that his plan for the wall was just a steaming pile of cow dung. When asked about the plans Trump said that he would indeed build the wall but it would be more or less just fencing like what currently lines part of the border currently.
“For certain areas I would, but certain areas, a wall is more appropriate,” he said. “I’m very good at this, it’s called construction. There could be some fencing.”
Trump then told 60 Minutes‘ Leslie Stahl that 2-3 million undocumented immigrants were criminals and was considering locking them up in the private prison system.
“We are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” he said. “After the border is secure and after everything gets normalized, we’re going to make a determination on the people that they’re talking about who are terrific people, they’re terrific people, but we are going make a determination.”
According to Opposition Report:
In other words, Donald Trump is talking out of his ass and would literally be imprisoning human beings who are guilty of nothing more than wanting to escape certain death and misery in their homeland by coming to the land of the free.
And because Trump intends to round people up and order mass deportations, he would have to put these people in a place to wait until they get deported. That means a prison population boom, not to mention the separation of families, which is exactly what happens in concentration camps.
Welcome to Nazi America. 2018 is going to be one hell of a year.
