The principal reason for the existence of all government is to confer safety to its citizens. If the government of Israel did not respond to the escalating danger from Hamas, it would be failing in its most basic reason for being.
Since October 2013, over 50,000 children from Central America have crossed the U.S.-Mexican border. The central cause of this escalating humanitarian crisis is the U.S.-led drug war, but public awareness of this link is disturbingly low.

U.S. intervention in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala may seem like a hazy memory now, but these countries used to feature prominently in our headlines.
Once again those families and communities that have long been and continue to be subject to discriminatory (and often predatory) behavior, pay a high price. But so do many who have not traditionally been victimized by these practices.
This is the story of a child, refugee, and immigrant now cataloged as a humanitarian emergency who, in debilitating languor, waits for the good will of an American government to save him.
We are the undocumented immigrant youth who struggle alongside our families and in our communities against the detention and deportation regime which every day works to displace and to harm us and which succeeds too-often in claiming our lives.
There's a big difference between how Mexican and Central American kids are treated once they cross the border. Mexican children and teens are deported almost immediately, in what's called expedited repatriation. The Central Americans aren't-- that is, yet.

Why is the city of Pasadena so far behind on this issue, especially if there is really nothing to hide or fear with regard to the conduct of its police officers? Why do certain city officials object to this idea?
