"Persecuted minorities, having been historically traumatized, feel the future before the rest of us do. They feel it in dread, anxiety, despair, shock. They feel it deep down in their bones. They don’t need statistics & charts to tell them what’s coming."

What this piece leaves out: we follow in the footsteps of decades of resistance by immigrant communities, in the face of harsh repression. For example, even our primary tactic of using non-violent direct action to shut down ICE facilities was pioneered in 2010 by #Not1More.
And we are far from the only historically or currently persecuted group sounding the alarm and taking action! Just take a look at the coalition of Latinx, Japanese-American, Black, Indigenous, & Jewish groups who stopped the re-opening of the Japanese internment camp at Ft. Sill
