  • Dear America,
    I think your post was really interesting and thoughtful because of how you explained that immigrants have to go through a lot of struggles and how Trump is only making it harder for them to succeed. A line that stood out to me was “Immigrants care about each other and their families like everyone else, and these new policies are d…Read More

  • Dear Jade,

    I feel like your post “Protests in Oakland” is very interesting because you explain the importance of protests and the beneficial effect it has in our communities. I enjoyed reading about the different perspectives people have on protests because it shows an understanding on more then one point of view. One sentence that stood out to…Read More

  • Dear Jesus,
    I am really enlightened and amazed about the topic you decided to talk about because it emphasizes different perspectives and views on gangs. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “In summary, the next time you see a gang member, treat them with respect, maybe even try to get their story.” This line stood out to me because…Read More

    • Dear, Divianca
      I feel very moved about your post “Migration” one sentence that stood out was” In spite of having quality workers, the boss decided to take advantage of the migrant worker by threatening to turn him in to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency”. This stood out because I have known a lot of immigrants that have worked very hard and they get robbed by only paying them a little. However one thing i disagree with is when you said “Nowadays since ICE is more active due to President Trump’s administration, more undocumented people fear even setting a foot outside their own home” because even before trump with barack obama administration obama deported 5 million this deporting problem started way before trump.
