Power is like energy and in context to migrants fleeing terrible conditions the power is found in those that choose to either receive them, send them back home or, in this case, deceive them. This is the second case of a person with a role in ‘protecting us’ from migrants being charged for this type of offense in the last few months. So basically, if we believe the logic of the anti-migrant crowds all people working to protect us from immigrants must be doing the same thing.
This is exactly what will continue to happen until we remove the title “criminal” from those seeking to live in the United States. As long as they must hide they will be victimized by those with the power to do so.
