What would you do?

Yesterday, we were told, would be a day of mass raids in many of our cities. That didn't seem to happen.
Immigrants and advocates had been bracing for the arrests, which Trump last warned of on Friday, saying he wanted agents “to take people out and take them back to their countries.” But federal law enforcement officials said they worried that the unusual public disclosure of the plan endangered officers and threatened their effectiveness.

Trump has vowed repeatedly to deport “millions” of people who are in the United States illegally, and the long-planned blitz aims to target families who entered the country recently and have received deportation orders. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has for years regularly arrested and removed immigrants who a judge has deemed should be deported after court hearings.
What we have now is more fear being thrown into an already chaotic situation. In other words, no one knows if or when these so-called migrant raids will happen.

We're in a bad place. In years past, it was simply a hypothetical question when discussing the Holocaust, the Nazi party and the so-called "good Germans", "What would you do if you see your neighbor being taken away?"

In this year 2019, Just under a hundred and one years after the end of the First World War and 75 years after the Second, we have to ask ourselves that question in the United States of America.

What will you do, now? The time for philosophical speculation is over. Do you have a plan, white friends?
