Here in Massachusetts we are faced with a Governor and State Legislature who are openly embracing the Trump agenda. In Massachusetts local police departments have been given the green light to arrest and detain migrants based solely on their immigration status. Back in June Governor Baker reversed an executive order put in place by Gov. Deval Patrick that prohibited the State Police to act on behalf of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to help detain and imprison people. The State Legislature has yet to pass the Trust Act which would outlaw this practice. The voters of Massachusetts have overwhelmingly rejected Trump and his agenda yet the State Government is currently serving the Trump agenda. The migrant community has contributed so much to this state and Governor Baker has chosen to respond with a slap in the face and an effort to criminalize decent hard working people. The time is NOW to take the fight to the centers of power. They are conducting naked class warfare. We must act now and build a fighting movement capable of defending ourselves as working people and youth against the general assault on working class people. The leading edge of this assault is the criminalization of migrants. An injury to one is an injury to all. Join in the resistance.
