On Monday, one of Trump’s dystopian tweets announced “Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in.” But in opposition a new report says “The figures and facts collected show that, although migration takes place in all parts of the world, it poses no threat to the social fabric of the countries of neither destination nor origin.”
In Berlin, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung released a 50 page report titled “The Atlas of Migration Facts and figures about people on the move.” that addresses the many realities and facets of migration and promotes a differentiated approach. In the current social climate, it takes courage to address this issue calmly and to recognize that immigration pluralizes our societies in the democratic sense.
