Shame on North Carolina: Education Is Denied to Immigrant Youth at DMI Blog. Sadly the opportunity to attend community colleges has been taken from DREAMers in North Carolina.
Despite her 4.0 grade point average, Laura, an aspiring engineer and a recent graduate from Charlotte high school in North Carolina will not be able to go to college. The land of opportunity has denied her access to a college education.

America needs labor, cheap labor, we enlist help from our "south", we get irritated with the "help" and send them home. Some time later, not a long period of time mind you, we realize that we need more cheap labor. We send out the "bat" signal, calling all cheap labor, and next thing you know, we have immigrant workers, legal and illegal. Clearly, many of the immigrant workers, legal and illegal who are hispanic are not all from Mexico, but I believe the premise of the article, this country needing an expanded unskilled work force, holds true for many of our southern neighboring countries.

Do you remember your First Book? asks Liza at Awearness Blog. I don't know that I remember my first book, but the first book I remember is "Pierre" by Maurice Sendak. In this book, in a similar manner to Bartleby, Pierre responds "I don't care" to everything he's asked until he's eventually eaten by a lion.
A home without books is like arid land. Sure, on that land life is supposed to grow. Yet the lack of water, nutrients and minerals and a whole ecology of bugs and worms and bacteria will make it impossible for the hardiest of plants to grow.

In a post titled Oops Greg Siskind's Blog points us to the article titled Report: Faulty design turned border fence into dam at azstarnet.com.
Simply put: The fence did not live up to promises made by officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Border Patrol or Kiewit Western Co., the private company that built the fence for $21.3 million, the report said.
An Anecdote at Problem Chylde.
We've lived in an environment that has distanced itself from seeking nexus for a while now. The only prevalent times when I still see people reaching out and helping each other - total strangers lending a helping hand to someone else - are when I ride the bus to school. I watched a mother insist another mother's 12-year-old daughter sit on her lap, while a fellow mother rearranged her shopping bags to sit alongside her on a crowded bus. I've heard recovered drug addicts counsel recovering drug addicts, and together they discussed the strengths and weaknesses of the rehabilitation model frankly and conversationally. No PowerPoint presentations, no textbook citations - real talk. Organic knowledge.

Forever 21 warehouse is much more necessary than food, right? at La Chola. Also why fire bombing will not work… on why violence is not going to do any good in the world of protest and positive change.
Come November, Floridians will vote to eradicate a provision of their State Constitution that went into effect in 1926. It's called the "Alien Land Law" and it prohibits anyone ineligible for citizenship from owning property. It was directed squarely at Asian immigrants. Proponents for wanting to get rid of the archaic law say that the language used to define who is ineligible is entirely based on race and therefore is "patently unconstitutional" and as such, repulsive to current-day Floridians. In describing why the law was passed in the first place, Senate Minority Leader Steve Geller, D-Hallandale Beach, said that at that time white America had both "an inferiority complex and a superiority complex" about Asian immigrants.
