The Trump administration on Tuesday issued new guidelines that constitute a “sweeping rewrite” of Obama-era policies on immigration, greatly expanding the number of individuals that can be forcibly deported and further emboldening the current crackdown.

The memoranda on implementation (pdf) and enforcement (pdf) of President Donald Trump’s recent executive orders on immigration, which were dated Monday February 20, 2017, and published by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), were leaked to news agencies over the holiday weekend and sparked wide concern among immigrants and civil liberties organizations.     Continue reading

Groundings: “Guyana Speaks – Guyana, Yesterday & Today”

My brief today is to speak about what is known about the term “Ole Time Story”. There is a ditty which goes like this:

“Every time I remember ol’ time story, water come a meh eye.”

Baldwin’s only equal as a 20th century essayist is George Orwell. If you have not read Baldwin you probably do not fully understand America. Especially now.     Continue reading
