Doesn’t the director have what sounds like a Latin name? WHY AREN’T YOU MEXICANS EVER HAPPY? WHY DON’T YOU JUST EAT A TACO? WHY IS EVERYBODY SHOUTING? [Mas…]

LBJ: War on Poverty. Nixon: War on Drugs. Trump: War on Immigrants

by Dr. Alvaro Huerta August 3, 2017 El Now

President Donald J. Trump and his administration’s immigration agenda centers on draconian, enforcement-based policies and executive orders, exacerbating an already dysfunctional immigration system.
