DHS, Under Trump Administration, Begins Public Shaming Campaign Of Sociopolitical Refugees
In the wake of the toppling travel ban issued by Trump, He, and the DHS (Dept. of Homeland Security) have announced plans to produce 2 public lists. One list is that of any "sanctuary cities", cities refusing to detain undocumented persons for deportation, to be amended as needed. The second list will be that of crimes committed by undocumented persons(view govt. PDF) in said areas. The first list, of sanctuary cities, will likely do little to shame them into altering their status as such, given their original boldness in their non-compliance with Trump's executive orders. It will serve as one thing- an advertisement for those sociopolitical Mexican refugees to know where they may go to be safe from legislative bigotry. The second list, however, is a dangerous one, as it disproportionately examines one set of statistics without comparison to the whole, giving the appearance of an "abundance" of crime within a geopolitical group that statistically commits *less* crime than native-born Americans.
