Trump Pulls on His Jackboots

Trump is advocating deporting people without a hearing.

Let's be clear on this: Due process is a Constitutional right that applies to everyone on U.S. soil, regardless of how they got there. Without due process, there is nothing that would stop the authorities from snatching you up and then shipping your ass to another country. Do you carry proof of citizenship with you at all times? Do you have your passport or your birth certificate or naturalization papers on you, right now?

This is one more bit of Trump's frog-boiling. If he's successful at taking away due process for undocumented immigrants, do you really think that he'll stop there? If you don't take a stand for the undocumented immigrants, who are entitled to due process, then who is going to stand up for you when the time comes?

I'm surprised Trump hasn’t claimed that having deportations without hearings is protecting the Constitution.

Trump hasn't read the Constitution. He has a different set of reading materials.
