Can't Happen Here?

• by Claire Bernish

Authorities swarmed towns, knocking on doors, questioning neighbors, rounding up those who now, suddenly, didn't belong — couldn't be considered Americans — to detain them until the problem could be sorted out. Later.

Those targeted by the sweeps cowered in fear of being ripped from the familiarity of daily life — knowing, ultimately, the unreal had become the new reality — and the situation would never return to a static 'normal.'

Although this could facilely describe present-day ICE raids and the detainment and deportation of people living in the U.S. without official approval, this has happened before — and though our previous flirtation with discriminatory fascism might have been a bit uglier, nothing prevents the same from happening today.
