Day One of the Democratic National Convention is now over, and tonight seemed designed to allow Bernie Sanders supporters to vent their frustrations, given the lineup of speakers.
The anti-Muslim rhetoric of Gingrich is exactly what ISIS wants to hear.
We live in confusing immigrant times. One moment, undocumented immigrants are filled with hope and optimism. The next is flush with dread and despair, especially since last week's Supreme Court 4-4 decision.
The Court should avoid going down a path that would lead to enormous-- and unnecessary-- constitutional and political turmoil.
• Adoption provides children a "better" life with more opportunities, right? • There are no differences in how adopted children are loved, cared ...
On December 22, 1941, two weeks after Pearl Harbor, LIFE Magazine, one of the most respectable, indeed iconic, publications in American history, offered its readers an article entitled "How to Tell Japs From the Chinese." In it the editors expressed their concern.
Thanks to Mr. Lyon's lawsuit, detained immigrants will finally be able to work on securing the documents and support they need, rather than grasping at a lifeline that is always just beyond their reach.

The roots of this deportation regime must be eradicated and replaced. But this will not occur by asking the federal government to be more "humanitarian" in carrying out its regime of immigrant and territorial exclusion.
A robust public conversation is currently unfolding led by the formerly incarcerated and seized by President Obama himself to reflect on our current criminal justice system and the lasting stigma and damage it causes those who have been in contact with it. But does a nation of second chances include those of us who are immigrants?
Ahead of their highly anticipated meeting in Washington on Thursday, putative Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has called for the deportation of House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Texas and 25 other states filed a lawsuit to block President Obama's November 2014 executive action to help keep immigrant families together. The DAPA and expanded DACA initiatives would help parents remain in the U.S. temporarily to work, further their education, and support their families.
Once again, immigration policy has taken a front seat in our nation's policy debates. The focus of much misleading and even hateful campaign rhetoric, the fight over changes in immigration policy proposed by President Obama has now landed in the US Supreme Court for oral argument.
What would have been unimaginable a mere decade ago, Republican front-runners have both promised to deport every last one of the estimated 11 million undocumented migrants in the United States while as a bonus banning Muslims from the country.
Immigrant rights advocates are encouraging families to get ready for the possible implementation of two programs that could go into effect later this year. Both programs provide beneficiaries with temporary relief from deportation.
This week the nation had to clean up the collateral-mud-damage from watching Thursday's Republican debate. To call it a circus would be to insult the dignity, decorum and poise of the circus. "This guy's a choke artist, and this guy is a liar," said Trump of Rubio and Cruz, who finally took on The Donald. Meanwhile -- irony alert! -- Trump said former Mexican President Vincente Fox "used a filthy, disgusting word" and "should be ashamed." Even worse, the substance matched the atmosphere. After an extended debate on poll numbers, it was hard not to wonder how much better it would be if the candidates cared about meaningful data as much as poll data: like the new report that the seas are rising at their fastest rate in 28 centuries. Or that 22 million people would lose healthcare with Obamacare's repeal. Or that deporting 11 million people would cost an estimated $400 - $600 billion, take 20 years and lower real GDP by $1.6 trillion. But, of course, facts are for losers.
