It definitely seems as though if Trump becomes POTUS again that the issue of proving citizenship will become the central issue of the day. If you’re actively trying to deport 20 million people — many of them with American children — then you find yourself in something of a quandary.
What is going to happen is Birthright Citizenship will be abolished one way or another and then things will only get worse. The greatly expanded ICE infrastructure will be used for not just rounding people up — which is popular with the MAGA base — but also coming after, well, people like me. I’m a drunk crank who occasionally writes that Trump can suck my cock.
Just like how we built the A-Bomb to go after Germany, only to use it on Japan, so, too, will we build out this massive Gestapo to kick undocumented people out of the country, only to go after Jews, gays, the mentally ill and drunk cranks. It’s the oldest story in the world — the law of unintended consequences.
It definitely will be interesting to see how everything works out. I can still see a revolution then civil war happening in 2025 if Trump goes “full tyrant.”
