FEATURING FRANCISCA PORCHAS – Donald Trump, desperate for a legislative win, is eying a crackdown on legal immigration this week. Trump has decided to back a reactionary Republican effort to cut residency sponsorship applications particularly of those people who emigrate through family ties to US residents and citizens. The move is perfectly in line with Trump’s pandering to his white American base.

Meanwhile a man that Trump has claimed to admire as “America’s toughest sheriff,” Joe Arpaio, has been convicted of criminal contempt. Arpaio is notorious for his anti-immigrant and racist targeting of Latino and immigrants from Latin America. He now faces up to 6 months in prison for refusing to abide by a 2011 ruling barring him from unconstitutional activity aimed at suspected immigrants.
