Interesting that you ran your opening item in the paper in several languages but not here. Unfortunately, you got at least one language backwards:

"There he goes again, the blabbermouth nativist, Donald Trump, the wall-building xenophobe.

We have a massive poverty population coming into our country virtually every day from Mexico, whines the guy who vows to build a beautiful wall along the southern border.

Oops. Beg your pardon. Misread our notes. Those actually were the words of Walter Mondale, Democratic senator, Vice President, presidential candidate, Minnesota progressive, speaking in the early 1970s."

Gail inspires me ...from the first time I heard her story over 20 years ago to just a month ago when I made my first trip to Nicaragua and she shared it yet one more time. Thank you for highlighting her life's work...we should all try to do something to make our Earth safe for all of God's children!!

Re: “How Undocumented Immigrants Can Avoid ICE

Its a darn shame that some people are so liberal that they have lost their common sense. Did you people really espouse, in print, methods by which illegal aliens can avoid federal law enforcement, for the choice that they freely made, to come to the US illegally? Your citizenship should be revoked. Stop and think about what you are doing.............Any other laws you want to give advise on HOW TO BREAK???

Re: “Will America Ever Become the Mother of Exiles?

Just touched on lightly is Illegal Immigration. Most Immigration into the US has been LEGAL Immigration.

Also, ever since Reagan, enforcement has been the problem. Our Immigration Code has not been strictly enforced especially after the last eight years under Obama.

Re: “Raleigh landlord Bhola Gupta arrested for allegedly breaking into his own house, stealing tenants’ stuff

Perry Edwards who own the rooming house on 1209 E Jones St., Raleigh, NC, 27601 needs to be investigated. I been hearing bad complaints about that rooming house, so I decided to check it out. When you rent from Perry Edwards he have to see your social & ID. You have to give him the rent money and deposit. The rent that I have to give was 450 plus the deposit which was 50. It's severely mold in the bathroom, kitchen and the very last bedroom. That rooming house have bed bugs and roaches really bad. Perry rents to anybody. Crackheads, drunks, criminals, child predators, etc. He have a racist couple stay in the second front room attacking black women. He knows this but don't care. He just only cares about receiving his money nothing else. He doesn't give no rent receipts. He just come by the rooming house to pick up the rent money or you have to come to his office that looks like a drug spot. He pays off health inspectors just to pass him If he gets reported. And after the person reports him, he will kick them out and throw a restraining order on them and lie saying the renter never stayed there. And what makes it so bad he is an ex cop that use to work for Raleigh Police Department. The cops came over to the rooming house not to long ago. They came to the rooming house around 3 in the morning. I don't know what for. But I decided to be nosey. The cops are really racist over here as well. When how the cops was treating people of minorities over here. I felt sick to my stomach. I never heard so much racial slurs coming out cops mouths like this. I just lefted after that before taking pictures of the rooming house. I seen all I need to see and experience for myself. Perry Edwards needs to get put in jail.

Re: “Charles Murray's Duke Appearance Avoids the Blacks-Are-Inferior Thing, Talks About “Cognitive Elites” and the White Working Class

More bottom feeders attacking Murray without even having the faintest idea of anything he is actually written or believes. Hey, at least one of the protesters at "heard" about the book. I guess five minutes of Googling was too much to ask of the smear merchant who wrote this. I can't imagine while the whole campus antics movement is a national laughing stock. That is, when they aren't destroying property or sending female faculty members to the hospital.

Re: “How Undocumented Immigrants Can Avoid ICE

Did you know Independent weekly any of this?

http://www.illegalaliencrimereport.com/murder/

http://www.ojjpac.org/memorial.asp

Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States.

All these stats don't include murder, rape, assaults, burglary, identity theft, tax evasion, drug running, human smuggling and so much more that American's have to put up with on a daily basis.


Here is a PARTIAL list below of what ILLEGALS are costing us now.

Most the facts below are 3 years old or newer so some of the numbers have risen dramatically since then.

12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English.

$17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

$2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

$22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year.

$3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.

30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.
Does not include local jails and State Prisons.

In 2012 illegal aliens sent home $62 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin. This is why Mexico is getting involved in our politics.

$200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

Re: “Evangelicals Overwhelmingly Support Trump. Not All of Them Support His Refugee Policies.

I will never understand how people who claim to be Christians could possibly think the republicans in general, and Rump in particular, share any aspect of life, especially religion. They are evil liars that care only for the billionaire class and the power they can achieve using their money.

Morality to them is a joke they force others to observe while they do whatever they want. Republicans are nobody's friend...unless you got tons of dark money.

Re: “Garner Residents in Subsidized Housing Face Increased Rent, Eviction

Huh. Eller has stopped accepting Section 8 before:

http://www.dailytarheel.com/article/2015/0…

Now there are two stories. The story of these residents in Garner, and the ongoing story of Chapel Hill's affordable housing problem. If Eller was praised by the chamber for his affordable housing work, there's definitely a different standard out there.
