In less than 100 days, Donald Trump has already proven he is committed to following the hateful and racist rhetoric of his campaign with an expansion of race-based surveillance and policing by his administration. Under Trump, law enforcement agencies have been given carte blanche to criminalize and pursue immigrants and people of color. Their efforts will be aided by a vast and unaccountable surveillance system that will make it easier to track, arrest, and deport targeted communities.
Resistance to these dangerous conditions is needed now more than ever, and must be rooted in the leadership of the communities that will be most heavily policed under this administration: Black, immigrant, and Arab and Muslim communities.
