Re: “DREAMers Deferred

So much for deep thinking. After the election Pelosi and Schumer called President Trump, Hitler reincarnated. They had dinner with him last night and seem to believe they are ready to do business with him. They sound like white supremacists to me.

Re: “DREAMers Deferred

All of the Republican, conservative, Trump-supporting, anti-Latino whites completely ignore the documented facts that 8 MILLION undocumented workers came across the border from Mexico during the George W. Bush reign. It became more obvious to them during President Obama's terms in office because their hate meter was at the boiling point after having to endure a Black man in the White House . There was enough hate and disgust left over to go after the DACA children. My advice is to never TRUST a Republican in government. They will lie, cheat, steal, and kill to get their objectives met and they don't care who is the collateral damage in their actions.

Re: “DREAMers Deferred

The plight of these kids SUCKS!
They have a RIGHT to be pissed!
Because their parents listened to the "Pied Pipers" of the left wing;
For DECADES they listened to Raoul Grijalva, Isabel Garcia, Kat Rodriquez and
The rest of the "Pro-Raza" Open Borders crowd
Who promised them Amnesty, Jobs, Citizenship and a "Raza Revolution."
So they came with their children
And NOW the American people have woken up.
They want their borders secured.
Newly minted American citizens who waited in line
ESPECIALLY want the border secured.
One of them told me:
"Mr. Warden. I didn't emigrate from Mexico to have Mexico follow me here!"
So The DACA kids have a right to be pissed!
But they should focus their anger on those who led their parents astray.
Focus their anger on Grijalva, Garcia, Rodriquez and the rest
Of the "Pro-Raza" crowd!

Re: “In Congress' hands

There's also the RAISE Act to limit legal immigration and give American workers (primarily minorities and lower income Americans) a raise in pay. But every liberal opposes it.
Here's a deal: pass the RAISE Act then pass DACA.

Re: “DREAMers and Dollars

What level of immigration is too much? What level of population is too much? What level of wages for American workers is too low?
At what point would any one at the weekly support anything other than unlimited immigration?

Re: “DREAMers Deferred

Why is every article about this subject exactly the same?
Find some admirable example, get some quotes and build sympathy. Sprinkle the emotionally charged and factually inaccurate term "DREAMers" throughout. Completely ignore the other side of the story. Call it a day.
Journalism these days is terrible.

Re: “Children's Crusade

Fitting that the Weekly would call this a "Crusade". A Crusade, after all, is a war of conquest, which is precisely what massive, uncontrolled, unending illegal immigration is - a slow-motion war of conquest. Moreover, I keep seeing this reference to "children". No one is eligible for DACA who was brought here after 2010. So no DACA beneficiary can be under the age of seven, by definition. The average age of a DACA beneficiary is 25. The majority are adults, not children.

Re: “Children's Crusade

"Children's Crusade?"

How STUPID can you get!

You mean that empty headed, 13th century effort of European "Children" to follow a "Pied Piper" and travel to the Holy Lands to convert Muslims to Christianity? Who were betrayed by their leader and sold into slavery?…

About as STUPID as DACA supporters who oppose Trump!

If these kids have a beef it is with the local Pied Pipers Isabel Garcia, Raoul Grijalva, Bishop Kicanas (who NEVER saw a child's bottom without feeling lust in his heart), etc. who aided and abetted, enticed and invited, and otherwise ENCOURAGED the parents of these kids to illegally enter in the first place so the left wing could accomplish the long awaited "reconquista." (And the Republicans pigs could grow RICH off of "Cheap Labor")

Grow up, read history and realize The Raza Revolution is now OVER! These kids were betrayed, but not but Donald Trump!

Re: “Children's Crusade

I see all of the DACA marchers, and signs, and rallies, and night vigils, and crying Facebook videos which are appealing to the empathetic emotions of individuals who can help their plight. It's not going to work. In order to get the attention of those in power you have to hit them in the pocketbook. By completely boycotting large businesses and industries including the Tech companies you will get action within a week after you start a boycott. All the suppressors at the top want, love and lust for is money. If you take away their money they are nothing but empty soulless shells .

Re: “White Flight

Wow, if your any other race but white, you can say your proud of their ethnicity? Talk about racists, I think these "critics" need to look in the mirror.

Re: “Storm Warnings

As a species, we are standing in the middle of the road waiting for those with wealth and power to make a decision about the "reality" of the quickly approaching semi-truck that is climate change.

We can all see the semi-truck by now, feel the rumble as more and more severe weather shakes the ground, but some doubt its existence and attribute its approach to politically-motivated alarmist bent on disturbing the status quo of living in the middle of the road.

After all, as a species, we have been living in the middle of the road for ages, and with a few exceptions of semi-trucks carrying ice ages and mass extinctions back when the middle of the road was just dirt and inhabited by dumb animals, a semi-truck has never hit us before, what make you think it will hit us this time?

Science! Phish posh. Science is nothing more than the collective opinions of people with too much education and not enough experience in the noble fields of business and politics.

Trust the politicians and business people, and if they are wrong -- well there will not be any one left to tell them and that is a win-win.

Re: “Storm Warnings

"Climate change impacts will hit low-income communities and communities of color hardest" -- just like the high immigration rates that the left (and right) consistently support.

Re: “White Flight

to me, this is more fake news similar to CNN's constant and consistent blowing up any comments that are perceived as racist or not 'progressive'. I don't know Ally Miller, but judging one social media comment to define her is ridiculous.
a lack of critical thinking about issues of the day seems to be the norm in this alleged public forum.

Re: “White Flight

There is a person lurking amongst this thread that is VERY unhinged.

I will not name names because that is considered to be rude.

But...I will drop hints.

It isn't Jerry, sg, Peabo, or Palisades.

It's some fuck that reminds me of one half of my favourite cartoon.

Which is currently Rick and Morty.

Figure that one out.

Re: “New Sheriff in Town

I think it's probably time to stop calling us the leader of the free world. It's ostentatious and untrue at any level even before we elected a president who lacks the diplomacy to elicit support from former allies, most of whom have been offended by him. There is no free world without our friends around the globe who are willing to work with us to make it so. Not trying to pick an argument, just the way I feel from years of living overseas and interacting. We're not special, we are all one. The sheriff sounds reasonable and we need reasonable. We also need a worker visa program, maybe something high tech that actually works, not a wall. We also need to begin to look forward. China is putting a high speed train out there that will travel 300 miles per hour (and acres of solar panels to bypass drilling and fracking and pollution, and even making them in the shape of a panda). We need solar, not punishment for having it. We need high speed rail between here and Phoenix, between here and CA, and eastward. It would have us in Phoenix in the time it takes me to drive to TIA, and us to another employment center. We need roads and bridges and a safe power grid, a huge change in the way we teach, interacting via Skype or other methods with public schools across the world where our kids can learn more languages, more about other countries, where they are, who they are, and to engage in healthy competition. We need so much and we are mired in petty politics with big money buying whomever they think will make the laws they want. Off topic I know, but it's time for us all to grow up. Miller lost her temper and said something that sounded condescending. It was, don't vote for her, I won't, but we shouldn't have to read about it every single day when there is so much that needs to be done and said. Horse and buggy pettiness will continue to grip us until attitudes are adjusted.
