Withholding Money, Sending Muscle Instead

/

Editor’s Note: This piece is in response to a call from the editors of DigBoston in their editorial of a couple weeks ago, “Editorial: Resist Ice & Border Patrol Immigration Raids,” for news publications to stand up to the growing elements of fascism both in the White House and in Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.
