The Trump White House

Chapter One

Oh, Canada!

Two questions occur to me “will I ever be allowed home again? And “Do I want to go home?”

I am eighty years old, living in my Toronto home.  In my adopted country, which I moved to in order to avoid being deported from the only Country that I had ever lived in, The United States. Several million others were deported, including a former President, were forced to leave when the 29th Amendment to the Constitution, known as “The Cruz Amendment,” was ratified. The once controversial Amendment, grew exponentially in popularity, with the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States in 2016.

This amendment, which removed nine words from the 14th Amendment changed America from a “melting pot” to an “exclusive golf course.” The amendment which simply read “The Fourteenth Amendment to this Constitution, shall from this day forward, be amended to omit the word, ‘All persons born or naturalized in the United States’ was ratified on April 18, 2017.

Let me give you some background.  In 2017, I had just turned 60 years old. President Donald Trump, fulfilling his promise to rid the country of all illegal aliens, had many of us arrested.    I was born in New York City.  I never missed an election since I became eligible to vote in 1973.   Yet suddenly, I was jailed, my citizenship revoked and threatened with deportation.      So like many other children of immigrants, I crossed the northern border and found a new home.

How could this have happened?   It seemed that my Maternal Great Grandfather in 1896, didn’t spell his name the same way that it was spelled at Ellis Island, this combined with the 29th Amendment to the Constitution made me an illegal Alien.   Suddenly I was without a home.   I grew up in Queens, the most ethnically diverse county in the country, maybe even the world.  Why?

In 2015, the Country was looking for a quick fix, and along came Donald Trump.   A man with a severe case of Xenophobia.   It was a familiar pattern, but we didn’t connect it.A loud, xenophobic egotist who blames another ethnic group for our problems and has an unusually large percentage of the population following him like lemmings.

I remember the quote of Hilary Clinton, in late 2015.   She didn’t realize that the microphone was on and she told a group of people, that “the election will be a slam dunk, if the Republican are stupid enough to nominate Trump.”   She was wrong and although it was a tight race, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida surprising went for Trump, setting into effect, what would later be classified as a "Revolution."

Then one evening INS came and said that I was going to be deported, but to where?   My roots are Polish, Russian and Romanian, but I’ve never been to these places. So along with 10 other Jewish Lawyers, we cramped ourselves into the backseat of an Audi, Convertible, carefully hiding ourselves from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and arrived in Ontario.
