The War on Terror Comes Home

George W. Bush began the "War on Terror" in 2001 to battle Al-Qaeda as a result of 9/11.  Now, 18 years later, it has come full circle and fears of otherness have created a a war of terror on our own soil, with ICE agents detaining and imprisoning taxpaying citizens.  We have literally become the very enemy that we purported to fight when the WTC fell.  Rather than making our community safer, these pickups have broken up families and created feelings of suspicion and hatred of whites in the Latino community in Durham.  It is shameful to see our government using these tactics to support its political positions on the wall at the Southern border and on illegal immigration. Shame!
