Is the US Legally Obligated to Accept Refugee Children?

Tens of thousands of Central American children, mainly from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have been fleeing from increasing violence in their own countries. Women are being raped and murdered in masses, and the rate of children getting raped and murdered has gone up steadily every month since January 2014. It is a crisis in the most tragic sense of the term. All these children are fleeing from almost certain death, leaving their parents behind, reaching the border of the USA with survival as their only goal. Unfortunately, they are treated as criminals by the US Government, and in most…

The Gays Are Coming To Take Your Guns: Rational Inquiry Into Prop 8 And DOMA

“We are not endeavoring to chain the future, but to free the present. We are not forging fetters for our children, but we are breaking those our fathers made for us. We are the advocates of inquiry, of investigation and thought. This, of itself, is an admission that we are not perfectly satisfied with all our conclusions.” – Robert Ingersoll FEAR AND FAIRNESS As fallible human beings, we are typically guided by either fear or fairness. Fairness is an inherently American concept that has animated and defined our country from inception. We care deeply about fundamental fairness. And what is…

Immigrant Detainees Held in Solitary Confinement for Weeks (Video)

According to a New York Times report, new federal data shows that about 300 immigrants are held in solitary confinement each day at detention facilities overseen by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, throughout the country. Half are held in isolation for 15 days, and about 10 percent are held for up to 75 days, a period which psychiatric experts say can cause serious mental damage. The report says the US has the highest rates of solitary confinement out of all democratic states. There were varying reports for why these immigrants were held, usually because of violation of facility…

This is America! We speak English- and Spanish, and French, and Chinese, and…

In spite of what you might have seen on the Internet, the United States does not have an official language.  Some states have chosen official languages for themselves, but English has never been the official language in this country, because it has never been the only language in this country. Even at the time of the Founding Fathers, there were other languages being spoken in and around the 13 colonies.  The Founding Fathers themselves were well-educated and multilingual.  People have come- and continue to come- from all over the world to participate in this grand, messy experiment that is the…
