There is good news to be found -- if you know where to look. It's in the conviction and courage of everyday people stepping up to move our country to higher ground. The actions these people have taken are silver linings in an election that has tested our belief in America and, at times, humanity.
Maybe this, together with all the dark talk of "rigged elections" from Trump will finally provide a dash of enthusiasm for Clinton, here at the homestretch -- it'd certainly be a fitting end to the most bizarre presidential campaign of everyone's lifetimes.
Age is irrelevant to me. Sharp minds usually stay sharp. It's the ears that stop listening or don't listen at all that bothers me and, I'm sure, that all the grieving parents in Arizona want is to get the same unpaid time off as someone who has a child, or cares for a sick family member, or service member. It's not about business, it's about compassion.
The much-anticipated, chaotic, sometimes laughable, but mostly terrifying 2016 Republican National Convention has come to end. And, oh, what a ride. There were certainly the highly publicized moments: Melania Trump's partially plagiarized speech and Ted Cruz being, well, Ted Cruz.
According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 76 percent of Latinos support Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Only 14 percent of Latinos said they back Trump.
Don't worry. Donald has lots of prominent Americans, representing a broad and diverse spectrum of America, who've endorsed him and can be expected to campaign for him. Here's just a few of those who are likely to stump for Trump. With these folks in his corner, how can he lose?
On May 2, a federal court in Arizona allowed Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to continue his workplace raids to search for undocumented immigrants using false identities to work. In the wake of this decision, we should reconsider how we define identity theft.
Donald Trump is so reckless and unpredictable that he just might decide to select as his running mate Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the most dangerous law enforcement official in America. Indeed, Trump and Arpaio are soul-mates with much in common.
Would the construction of an 18-foot high concrete fence running the length of the border greatly disrupt the flow of illegal people, drugs, and weapons into the U.S.? Certainly. Will it be 100 percent effective? Certainly not.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio has blood on his hands and has been running amuck for far too long. It's high time we see him in striped uniforms wearing pink underwear underneath.
Arizona stands unique in that it's rise to the partisan battleground is not based on outside investment or competitive federal elections but rather owes its success to the grassroots movement that has successfully resisted local anti-immigrant laws.
This week Pope Francis makes his inaugural visit to the United States. As he is greeted with well-wishes from people of faith and conscience, I am reminded of his compelling message for the 2013 World Day of Migrants and Refugees.
President Trump, surrounded by his entire cabinet, held his 750th daily press conference today. The following is a rough, annotated, somewhat edited, extremely cleaned-up transcript.
Republicans ought to be ashamed for using tragedies to advance their political agenda that can only promote an increase of hate crimes against brown-skinned people.
Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee showed everybody just how out of touch with reality they are by posting an asinine "press release" that relies on tired misrepresentations about the Obama administration's track record on immigration, wrapped in adorable gifs from your favorite teen movies.
According to the Associated Press, "Arizona became the first state in the nation on Thursday to enact a law requiring high school students to pass the U.S. Immigration citizenship test on civics before graduation."
