It's all about power and money, not the betterment of the country. Not even a smidge.

If they cared about the country they'd be doing something about the homeless crisis. Their only contribution was to make it legal for the homeless to camp anywhere they want. THAT isn't a fix, it has made it far worse.

I had a guy lay on the sidewalk in front of my home one night a few weeks ago. It was a first and the cops said they couldn't do anything about it. The new transient laws prevented them from doing anything. Now the guy is camping in the bushes at the bank across the street.


This is getting REALLY BAD!!!

They're muslims, they're not white. Rashida is a Palestinian. Of course they will hate Whites and Jews - especially Jews in the case of Rashida. The only people who are pretending to be dumb are White guiltridden liberals who think the world is one giant summer camp where everyone gets along except for those 'meanie' white racists out to ruin everyone's time!

It was kind of stupid to restrict places where many citizens, and government officials originated. Jews and Catholics were already here in large enough numbers to make a difference.
The 1924-1964 law restricted by national origin relative to who was in the US. It only restricted Eastern Europeans and Southern Europeans to the degree they were already represented in the US. It makes perfect sense to me to maintain the balance.

I agree. The side effect is the transformation of the country and I think that was the original intent of the 1965 immigration act.

I've often wondered about this. Rashida Tlaib is termed a 'woman of color.' She is of Palestinian ancestry. In appearance she reminds me of my 6th grade science teacher, who was Italian. We never thought of my teacher as a 'woman of color.'

Growing up, I had a good friend who was Palestinian, born in Israel and emigrated to the US. I am pretty pale, mostly N. Euro ancestry, and he was just as pale as me. I didn't think of him as a 'man of color.' Is Rashida Tlaib really a 'woman of color?'

Sorry darlings. Muslims are of all races and I think they are white - there might be Black or Asian blood there - I donít know enough about their families/ but I think white is the race here.

Tlaib is Caucasian. The Dems pull this "woman of color" BS for two reasons: one, that's their way of protecting people from criticism, and they want to protect her; and two, they are using it to drive their racism wedge as part of their campaign strategy.

There are really only three races: Caucasian, Mongoloid (Asian), and Negroid (black). It's possible Tlaib has a little black ancestry way back when, but she is primarily white.

Omar is not White, she's a Somali. Rashida is a Palestinian, and while some Palestinians can look "White", Rashida does not, she looks part Black. I'm guessing part of her ancestry is from Gaza, hence she has Egyptian in her (some Black blood). Look at her nose and lips. No one thinks "White woman" with that mug.
