The New Arizona Immigration Bill…In the eye of an immigrant born ...
Legal discrimination in the United States was supposed to have come to an end nearly half a century ago, and technically it has. Today, thanks to the sacrifices of so many Americans during the civil rights era, the federal government has outlawed and deemed unconstitutional any law or regulation that could even be perceived as racist in any form.

Patterson grasped a strap and helped lower the untreated pine casket holding his wife’s linen-wrapped body into the ground on a clear January day in Georgetown, he felt it was a fitting send-off for a woman of strong faith and simple tastes. Rita Patterson took joy in the pleasures of participating in Bible study groups and cooking for her family. She never made a fuss about herself.
