Trump will actually drive more female voters into Hillary's arms. He has such as trail of verbal aggression towards accomplished women that Hillary will trump Donald with the "first female President" card and his hostility towards women.
The wider Mid-East region remains convulsed by its unprecedented numbers of "huddled masses", worsened daily by the brutal warfare in Syria, but response in one Mid-East country is going largely unreported in the West.
I recently interviewed Harry DeMell, an immigration lawyer since 1977 and a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, about the current ...
When news arose that the killings in San Bernardino last Thursday was probably terrorist related - that the perpetrators Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfe...
Here are some of the things I wish I had known before I started my job search in the US and what I tell my immigrant clients. Whether you're a native-born American or an immigrant, these are good reminders for when you're out job hunting.
Donald Trump's political rhetoric has historical resonance--it exposes how our worst fears and anxieties can lead to shameful conduct that not only imposes real costs on "outsiders," but also the American public.
For Donald Trump, this is not going to end well. What began as a lark has turned into an albatross, and he now carries around his neck the ultimate bu...
We in education must reject the notion that immigration is just an immigrant issues, that the educational solutions to disproportionality in immigrant education are more about immigrants assimilating to us than we in education learning vastly how to respond to and accommodate them.
I'm not angry. I'm not even worried. When I watched him say that no Muslims should be allowed in the United States until we "figure out what the hell is going on" I felt....relieved. And actually kind of grateful.
Just when we thought that Donald Trump couldn't possibly go any further off the deep-end, he surprised us all with his abhorrent plan to ban Muslims from entering the country. There's no need to even address the lunacy of that idea at this moment, because thankfully, at least as of now, he can't actually enforce his bigotry on the world. Thank the heavens.
Because of his notoriety and the ratings it garners, the media grants Trump credibility and constant coverage of his continued falsehoods and ugly assaults against those whom he has named as enemies -- who are mostly people of color.
France's wrenching shift to the right in last Sunday's regional elections should serve as a warning to American liberals.
The story we tell ourselves is that the American identity is rooted not in place, but in the acceptance of a common set of ideals, irrespective of race, religion or ethnicity. The politics of the last decade, however, have strained the notion of e pluribus unum, revealing among whites three definitions of the American nation that are exclusive rather than inclusive.
It is the season of lists: best movies, best books and on and on. Since I teach and write on globalization and international political economy, I thought I would continue a tradition I started several years ago of creating a different type of list: a geo-political-economic list -- a list of globalization's top five trends for the year.
I've been following the advice of the Freakonomics guys, who advise us to think like a child and ask seemingly naive questions in the pursuit of higher truths. So I asked myself, "Would something like the Homestead Act for undocumented immigrants be a good idea?"
Brooklyn is a fine, well-acted, technically-proficient, inoffensive film that is very easy to like. But when a white Christian immigrant in a movie is extended more compassion, understanding, and humanity than actual non-white Muslims fleeing for their lives, we should all wonder why.
