CounterCurrents: The worst case scenario unfolds in USA
The worst case scenario is unfolding in USA. The Washington Post reported, "U.S. immigration authorities arrested hundreds of undocumented immigrants in at least a half-dozen states this week in a series of raids that marked the first large-scale enforcement of President Trump’s Jan. 26 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally."
Protesters took to the streets in Los Angeles on Thursday evening after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reportedly raided homes and communities around the city and detained over 100 people in a mere three hours.
E.P. Milligan writes that this Trump order could affect 8 million immigrants.

Trump Orders Could Affect Up To 8 Million Immigrants As Deportations Begin
by E.P. Milligan
Though the travel ban has been halted by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the other elements of the immigration orders are only just beginning to take effect.

For millions of undocumented immigrants living in the United States, the future poses the immediate danger of deportation. According to an analysis by the Los Angeles Times, the new orders could result in the deportation of eight million people, with millions more family members effected. The Trump administration’s move to scapegoat millions of immigrants is part of a broader attack on the democratic rights of the working class as a whole.

Despite being pressed by the bench, and by the lower District Court to adduce evidence that the US was at such immediate and dire risk, nothing was forthcoming.

Book Review: Global Theory From Kant To Hardt And Negri By Gary Browning
by Dr Sanil Malikappurath Neelakandan
Gary Browning’s book unfolds the academic space that endorses the hegemonic reception of global theory.Contemporary intelligentsia do view global theory as a radical theoretical tradition that problematizes the assertions emerged in the context of globalization.In other words,the social movements that emerged against the ruthless penetration of globalisation are categorised into political categories called global theories.Browing in an incisive,theoretical critique does offer new insights into the claims related to the novelty of global theory.This book challenges the gargantuan status of global theory through the critical analysis of earlier,radical ,social theories.
