SEP/IYSSE public meetings
Mobilize the working class to defend immigrant rights!
12 February 2017
In his first weeks as president of the United States, Trump has launched a full scale attack on immigrant workers and refugees. Executive orders ban immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries, lay the framework for the detention and deportation of millions of immigrants, and initiate the building of a heavily-militarized wall on the US-Mexico border.
Opposition to the Trump administration must not be channeled behind the Democratic Party! The Democrats have responded to the election of Trump with a combination of cowardice and complicity. The road Trump is taking—including the attack on immigrants—was paved by the Obama administration. The protection of immigrants and the defense of democratic rights can be advanced only through the unification of the working class, of all races, ethnicities, and nationalities, against their common enemy, the capitalist system.
At these meetings, representatives of the Socialist Equality Party and International Youth and Students for Social Equality will speak on the significance of Trump’s election and the political perspective that must guide opposition to war, inequality and dictatorship.
