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: “How Undocumented Immigrants Can Avoid ICE

Did you know Independent weekly any of this?

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: “27 Reasons We Love the Triangle Right Now

Ditto on #10. Eric signed with Minnesota last off season. Jordan came here in 2012. Maybe if the Canes can pull off a miracle and make the playoffs one of these years, people will have names like Skinner, Aho, Rask, Faulk, and Staal (Jordan, not Eric) on the tips of their tongues!

Re: “For Some Breast Cancer Survivors, Nipple Tattoos Offer a Return to Normalcy

I had breast cancer last year, and I beat the cancer. My question is, do you have any promotions. I have had implants and they are fine. I also have scars across my breast and I'm so self conscious. Can you please help me?

Re: “Hope Tyler’s Little Girl Became a Boy, and She Became an Activist

Your son is exceptionally lucky to have you as a parent.

The tragedy of Leelah Alcorn and of all the Leelah Alcorns in North Carolina and around the world should haunt those who pass hate laws like HB2...sadly they seem to ignore the overwhelming evidence that acceptance and love are the only appropriate responses to transgender children.

Instead they peddle fear - unreasoning, unfounded fear. And I say that as a member of my local school board's Financial Advisory Committee, someone very familiar with the right and wrong way a school system can deal with transgender students.

Last year I was approached by a local school official asking for help with a bathroom policy. I suggested that they not draft one and simply let things move on their own, because an official policy, something that might attract controversy, just isn't needed.

There are four transgender students in our system right now (out of just below 4000 total students). They are not the first transgender students and they won't be the last.

And in the 12 years I've been in the district we have had exactly zero issues, complaints or incidents. Instead our local students have thrived and moved on to college, whether transgender or not. And that's the way it should be.
