Pay attention to talk like this, folks. Birthright citizenship, the veritable bedrock of our country, affects every single person born in this country.

Every. Single. One.

Mess with that, and any of us can be rendered non-citizens. Stateless.
Defacto non-entities in the country of our birth. Stripped of our rights: to live, work, seek an education, vote. People born here could be "deported" to the country of their parents birth. Or their grandparents.

Or rounded up, expelled from certain areas, put in camps. Two black-clad goons, labeled ICE, drag away Lady Liberty, saying:
It's been done before.
By the American government.
Just ask Japanese-Americans.

And, of course, there are other examples. Just ask the Jews of WW2 Europe. If you can find any.

The world has been here before.
Have we learned from the horrors of our past? Must we repeat them? I can't keep calm, I'm a history teacher.
Paying attention is a political act. History may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme. So keep paying attention. We're all depending on each other.

Stay frosty, folks.

#HistoryMatters Each time history repeats itself, the price goes up. - Ronald Wright
