    As former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich says in his May 23 Alternet article:

    Trump's Budget is Cruel and Deviant

    "He proposes to cut federal spending by more than $3.6 trillion over the next decade, much of it for programs that help the poor...in order to finance a huge military buildup and tax cuts for corporations and the rich.

    In fact, the biggest losers would be people who voted for Trump - whites in rural and poor areas of the country who depend on Medicaid, food stamps and Social Security disability."

    As I point out in more detail in my May 23 ilw.com blog post, some of the money diverted away from helping less well off Americans would also go to locking up more Latino and other non-white immigrants and to building Trump's favorite obsession, the Mexican Wall of Humiliation and Hate against immigrants of color.

    But Trump's proposed budget shows that it is not only immigrants who are the objects of Trump's hatred, anger and contempt - but also many millions of less well off Americans, including those whose votes gave him the electoral majority he needed to gain entry to the White House despite losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton.

    Reich's latest Alternet comments can be found at:

    If you want to consider another perspective on Trump's travel ban, Andrew Arthur, someone I worked with when I was a Judiciary counsel, just wrote an article on it. In addition to being a Judiciary counsel, he worked for INS and has been an immigration judge.
