Happening Now: Protesters Form Human Blockade to Stop Deportations

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

Despite all the current Republican noise attacking brown people seeking to survive Democratic-Republican policies of U.S. dominance and exploitation of Latin America, it is the actually current Democratic Commander in Chief who has outdone the former Republican Commander as the now record-breaking Deporter in Chief, sowing more misery than all those evil words by Republican candidates combined. Who will stand up to Obama and the Democrats on this besides marginalized rights campaigners? Why won't Sanders criticize Obama on this (or maybe he has been strong and clear on this for the past year, but I haven't noticed)?
