Trump’s welfare reform plan does not consider transportation to work

Trump’s plan does not consider that those who need assistance have limited access to transportation.

Republicans in Maryland have already killed the Red Line in Baltimore that would have increased access to jobs through public transportation.

Here is an opinion column pointing out the racism in that decision.

This lengthy article discusses the history of transportation in Baltimore and its impact on white flight to the suburbs.

The Trump administration closed a complaint against cancellation of the Red Line with no explanation.

More background: “Allegations of racial discrimination linger, with civil rights activists noting state money designated for transit that would have served poor, African American communities went instead to road projects in rural, mostly white areas of the state.”

Sad!
