Commentary: Right now everyone in America should be thinking seriously about what they want this nation to become.  In talking with family and friends about the 45th presidency whose catch phrase is "Make American Great Again", clearly the administration's usage of "great" does not match ours.

President Trump: Keep DACA in Place

Jul 18, 2017

Commentary: Washington, DC – The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the initiative that has provided deportation relief and work permits for nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants, is under attack. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has threatened the Trump Administration: if DACA isn’t ended by September 5th, he will sue to block it before a federal judge named Andrew Hanen, the notoriously anti-immigrant judge who blocked DAPA. Paxton seems to have a willing ally Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has long opposed DACA.
