Trump’s ‘shi**hole’ insult demands censure

  Martin Luther King Jr. Day in America is supposed to be a celebration of the civil rights giant. But as we approach the holiday, there is an undeniable truth. The American president is a racist, having branded himself a potty-mouth pol by use of the term "shithole" to describe people from poor countries, specifically immigrants from Africa, Haiti and El Salvador. Racist. Disgusting. And considering what the Philippine president has said about Obama, practically Dutertian. But if Trump's pussy grabbing rhetoric wasn't enough to sink his candidacy in 2016, why do you think Trump's latest racist insult will faze him? Still, the president has gone too far. His ra...Keep on reading: Trump’s ‘shi**hole’ insult demands censure.....»»

Trump comments highlight racial impact of migration platform

DENVER --- For years, a movement to limit the number of migrants into the US and end a system that favors family members of legal residents has had to fend off criticism that it's as a poorly veiled attempt to produce a whiter America. Then its most prominent supporter told members of Congress in the Oval Office this week that the US needs fewer immigrants from Haiti and Africa and more from places like Norway. President Donald Trump's use of a vulgar term to describe African countries triggered widespread condemnation, and left the small cluster of immigration hard-line groups whose agenda Trump has embraced scrambling to distance themselves from the president. "They say it...Keep on reading: Trump comments highlight racial impact of migration platform.....»»

Who’d prefer their country to Trump’s US? Norwegians would

STAVANGER, Norway --- Norwegians generally live longer than Americans. There's a generous safety net of health care and pensions. And although it's pricey, the country last year was named the happiest on Earth. President Donald Trump says the United States should take in more Norwegians, but is it any wonder that more Americans are going the other way? The country of 5.2 million people that seldom makes global headlines awoke Friday to the news that Trump wanted to have more immigrants from Norway, rather than Haiti and countries in Africa that he disparaged with a vulgar term. The comments came after Trump met Wednesday with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in Washingt...Keep on reading: Who’d prefer their country to Trump’s US? Norwegians would.....»»

Trump revives push to limit family sponsorships for immigrants

NEW YORK --- When the U.S. government approved Ricardo Magpantay, his wife and young children to immigrate to America from the Philippines, it was 1991. By the time a visa was available, it was 2005, and his children could not come with him because they were now adults. More than a decade later, his children are still waiting. Magpantay gets worried when he hears the White House is aiming to limit the relatives that immigrants-turned-citizens can sponsor, a profound change to a fundamental piece of the American immigration system. "It is really frustrating and it is very dreadful for me, because after a long wait, if this will be passed, what will happen for them?" said Magp...Keep on reading: Trump revives push to limit family sponsorships for immigrants.....»»

Tears, exuberance as ‘Black Panther’ opens across Africa

JOHANNESBURG --- "Black Panther" has burst onto the screen in Africa, handing a powerful response to the unfortunate remarks about the continent by President Donald Trump. As the red carpet in South Africa swirled with stunning outfits and exclamations in the local Xhosa language used in the film's Wakanda kingdom, cast member John Kani laughed at the U.S. president's views, which several African nations have openly scorned. (Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o said simply: "No comment.") The South African actor Kani, like many at Friday night's Johannesburg premiere, expressed pride at seeing an Afro-futuristic society that celebrates traditional cultures and dreams of what t...Keep on reading: Tears, exuberance as ‘Black Panther’ opens across Africa.....»»

DACA ‘Dreamers’ left in limbo as U.S. Senate nixes immigration bill

  WASHINGTON, DC --- The Senate left hundreds of thousands of "Dreamer" immigrants in limbo Thursday, rejecting rival plans that would have spared them from deportation and strengthened the nation's border security. Senators dealt President Donald Trump an especially galling defeat as more than a quarter of fellow Republicans abandoned him on an issue that helped propel him to the White House. Also defeated was a plan by a bipartisan group of senators who offered a compromise that would have shielded the young immigrants and financed Trump's demands for money to build his coveted border wall with Mexico, though more gradually than he wants. Eight Republicans joined most...Keep on reading: DACA ‘Dreamers’ left in limbo as U.S. Senate nixes immigration bill.....»»

Trump calls for optimism in spite of warnings of danger

WASHINGTON --- Addressing a deeply divided nation, President Donald Trump summoned the country to a "new American moment" of unity in his first State of the Union, challenging Congress to make good on long-standing promises to fix a fractured immigration system and warning darkly of evil forces seeking to undermine America's way of life. Trump's address Tuesday night blended self-congratulation and calls for optimism amid a growing economy with ominous warnings about deadly gangs, the scourge of drugs and violent immigrants living in the United States illegally. He cast the debate over immigration -- an issue that has long animated his most ardent supporters -- as a battle betw...Keep on reading: Trump calls for optimism in spite of warnings of danger.....»»

Trump wants Jay-Z to know black jobless rate at record low

WASHINGTON --- President Donald Trump is urging his followers to inform rapper Jay-Z that "because of my policies," unemployment among black Americans is at the "LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!"   Trump's tweet on Sunday appears to be in response to a CNN interview in which the rapper said the President's vulgar comments about African countries and Haiti were "disappointing" and "hurtful."   Jay-Z said on the debut episode of "The Van Jones Show" on Saturday that lower unemployment among blacks does not make up for the President's attitude.
