Under Trump, only white Christian people should be considered citizens. Karen J. Greenberg, Director of National Security at Fordham Law School, argues in this discussion that expanding the definition of enemies moves us toward unraveling society. By taking away citizenship as the administration is trying to do, you make people stateless. And stateless people have nothing to lose; it does the antithesis of bolstering national security. And the use of the increased fear of late night police knocks on your door makes citizens silenced.But how many voices can you silence, she asks in her essay “Citizenship in the Age of Trump: Death by A Thousand Cuts.” Trumps border wall is but a symbol of a much larger cleansing of America. Silence enables it.
