These kids are too busy trying to get good grade to be out committing crimes.
In today's article there were thousands of illegal immigrants arrested. Most of them criminals and fugitives. I just wanted to tie this back to yesterday's article. I'm sure that what you are thinking is "why would we help illegal immigrants with the dream act when they are all criminals?" Well they aren't. This is the stereotype that that illegal immigrants have been given but they are not all criminals. If you would let these students come forward and show you that they are good standing people then they would break this stereotype. If you would reach out and help them they would prove all of the sterotypes wrong. All they need is som recognition. But of course they won't come forward by themselves because they are afraid they will get deported.
The name of the article for today is called "GOP Tries to Woo Hispanics"
It talks a lot about the immigration laws. Rubio wants to pass the Dream Act. Originally the Dream Act was going to allow illegal students to gani citizenship if they were to do at least 2 year of college. Rubio has reviewed the law so that it does not grant these students citizenship but it will grant them legal status. Romney is altogether against it. Romney thinks that laws like the one in Arizona will make people self-deport and come back legally. I don't think he understands the dream act is not for everyone. It is for students. For children brought here before they knew any better. Rubio bring up a girl that was brought here when she was 4 years old, she is her class valedictorian and on her way to college but she received a deportation notice. She was 4 when she came here! She had no choice it's not fair that they are uprooting her from everything that she knows to be home. This is not some delinquent school drop out selling drugs, she's has the potential to contribute to this country if they would let her. There are thousands and thousand of kids in her situation. Romney is out if his mind is students like her are going to self-deport. This is their country. This is the only country they've known. And I bet you anything that most of these students don't even know the language of the country that they were born in. There has to be some sort of immigration reform. Romney can not think that the only solution is to deport EVERYONE. Romney has lost so many respect points in my book.
This article is really fun! It just tells you all about the awesome iPhone camera apps that there out there. It's written in the perspective of an old digital camera. This camera is talk to its fellow cameras that have been left in junk drawers. It's funny and informative! It's everything that I want in a news article. If you have an iPhone you can check out all the apps that you can get for your phone's camera. If you don't own one, get one. Or be jealous. The article has also given names to some of the poses that people camera phones do while taking pictures. There is one called the statue of liberty and rightly so. This pose is the one you get into when you are in a crowd, you are behind a lot of people but you really want a shot of what's going on. What do you do? you stretch your arm up really high and you take the shot. Can you imagine it? Haha.
Featured below is one of my awesome Instagram pictures that makes me feel like Ansel Adams....not.
This picture was taken on instagram and tweeted at the Hoodie March for Trayvon Martin. This story isn't new but I think that it is important to talk about. There is so much talk about this kid and the guy who killed him. A lot of people are talking about how this was a hate crime. Some say that this kid was armed others say that he had a bag of skittles in pocket. Some say that the man that killed him was told my authorities to stay in his car, others say that he shot him because Trayvon came at him in a threatening manner. Personally I think that there is too much publicity on the fact that he was black. So he was black. Isn't it a shame that a boy has been killed, no matter what color his skin was. As far as I can tell the reports have said that Trayvon was not armed. That, right there is what we should be focusing on. Not that he was dressed in a big hoodie. There are also some pictures going around of Trayvon where he is making obscene gestures at the camera and people are saying that this is a testament to his character but what teenager doesn't make obscene gestures as cameras these days? I can name a handful. The things is that people are starting to lose faith in America's justice system. It's corrupt for sure but in the end I really do believe that Trayvon's killer will be brought to justice. Have some faith people.
What do you guys think about this whole mess?
