Title 42 is set to expire this Thursday, May 11. Title 42 forbids refugees from seeking asylum in the U.S. if they first came through Mexico. Trump put this in place and expelled hundreds of thousands. Biden kept it in place and expelled over two million human beings. Right now, hundreds of thousands of people are at the border waiting for this to expire. They want to escape horrible violence, crushing poverty and environmental disaster.
Why are their countries filled with violence, poverty and pollution? Because the U.S. capitalist-imperialist system has used military invasions, coups, and puppet governments to dominate their economies and keep the people oppressed.
And when people try escaping these conditions, to feed their families, in desperation, traveling thousands of miles, with children in their arms, they will be met at the border with 1,500 troops that Biden is sending, 2,500 National Guard troops, on top of thousands of border patrol agents. They tell you and act like it's an “invasion," sending a message to be afraid of these migrants, slapping the label of “criminals” and “animals.” NO! NO HUMAN BEING IS ILLEGAL! These are our brothers and sisters! They are human beings, and no one should accept this as “the new normal.”
This system of capitalism-imperialism has created this crisis and will continue to force millions more to flee their homes. This will not and cannot be stopped under this system, it will only get worse. We, the revcoms (revolutionary communists) are getting organized for a real revolution to overthrow that system, and to replace it with a much better system based on the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, written by the revolutionary leader Bob Avakian. With this Constitution in place, it would enable us to welcome these people, fleeing horrific conditions, who want to contribute to building a new society.
To make all of this real, you, and thousands like you, need to be part of this revolution. If it hurts you deep in your heart when you see our brothers and sisters at the border, being put through these horrific conditions, if you wish you could do something to help them and millions more, YOU need to be part of this force who is fighting for the emancipation of all humanity! Only through the overthrow of this system will we be able to deal with this tremendous crisis that this very same system has created.
Instead of falling behind the lies that Biden and the Democrats will pass some kind of humane “immigration reform” while the reality is they mass deport and detain immigrants by the millions... instead of thinking and acting on the terms of this system... people need to learn about and become a part of working to make this revolution at the soonest possible time.
We are calling on you to get with the revcoms, to be part of standing up against all of this—as part of preparing for revolution. Spread this revolution, spread these slogans and the posters available on revcom.us. Put them up everywhere, reaching all those who agonize over what is happening. Be part of pulling people’s head out of the sand and giving them real hope.
Be part of bringing forward thousands and then millions into a movement for an actual revolution. Now's the time to get with this revolution!
