Speaking of 1965, another pivotal event was the Hart-Cellar immigration act.
The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, also known as the Hart–Celler Act, is a federal law passed by the 89th United States Congress and signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The law abolished the National Origins Formula, which had been the basis of U.S. immigration policy since the 1920s. The act removed de facto discrimination against Southern and Eastern Europeans, Asians, and other non-Northwestern European ethnic groups from American immigration policy.The National Origins Formula had been established in the 1920s to preserve American homogeneity by promoting immigration from Northwestern Europe. During the 1960s, at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, this approach increasingly came under attack for being racially discriminatory. With the support of the Johnson administration, Senator Philip Hart and Congressman Emanuel Celler introduced a bill to repeal the formula. The bill received wide support from both northern Democratic and Republican members of Congress, but strong opposition from Southern Republicans and Democrats, the former mostly voting Nay or Not Voting. This issue served as an inter-party commonality amongst constituents and reflects the similar Congressional District and Representative voting patterns. President Johnson signed the Hart–Celler Act into law on October 3, 1965. In opening entry to the U.S. to immigrants other than Northwestern European and Germanic groups, the Act significantly altered immigration demographics in the U.S. Some sources assert that this alteration was intentional; others assert that it was unintentional.

A federal judge Wednesday sentenced Erik Quiroz Razo, 28, to 21 months in prison for aiding the flight of the accused killer of Newman police Cpl. Ronil Singh.A jury in September convicted Razo and another man of helping Paulo Virgen Mendoza, 33, avoid capture during a 55-hour manhunt after the shooting on Dec. 26, 2018. They are among several people with ties to Mendoza who were prosecuted in U.S. District Court in Fresno.Razo is an undocumented immigrant from Michoacán, Mexico, who was living in Merced when the shooting happened, a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.Authorities said Razo helped Mendoza hide his truck after the shooting, drove him to various locations, and got rid of his loaded gun.“This defendant, a convicted felon and previously deported alien, played a critical role in helping a man accused of killing a police officer to elude apprehension,” U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott said in the release. “He disposed of the murder weapon, and he urged those close to him to not tell anyone about his activities.”
The District Attorney’s Office will seek the death penalty against the man accused of fatally shooting Newman police Cpl. Ronil Singh the day after Christmas in 2018.“After thoughtful consideration, deliberation, and much consultation with the victim’s family and their wishes, we are seeking the death penalty in this special circumstance murder case,” Chief Deputy District Attorney Jeff Mangar said in an email to The Bee.He made the announcement in court last week during a hearing for Paulo Virgen Mendoza.Also during the hearing, Judge Ricardo Córdova denied a motion by defense attorney Stephen Foley to put off Mendoza’s preliminary hearing, which is scheduled to begin Tuesday.

When 4.4 million Californians can vote for the GOP presidential candidate in2016 and not have their votes "count", when their votes alone, even as 31% ofthe CA electorate, outnumber those cast for president in 40 other states....something is busted. A similar imbalance in the other direction in Florida andTexas. It's messed up.

If a $400 strike costs you $100, the company needs to go down to $300 before you even just recoup the purchase price.
It may well be true that black people are genetically inclined to a mother + maternal grandmother system of raising children. To even suggest that is "racist" but race is very real.Historical evidence does not support the absent dad as genetic. Before the welfare system emasculated low income dads, Black illegitimacy was rather low. Also, rural Whites have gone down the path of collecting welfare in lieu of a husband. Add to that England. which also has a very generous dole system that caters to young knocked up women, who are overwhelmingly White.
The White House, in response, described Taylor as a “low level, disgruntled former staffer.” Taylor was the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) chief of staff under former Secretary John Kelly, although his NY Times article gave the impression that he was a higher-level employee inside the White House. “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration” is the title of the article, published in September 2018.White House chief of staff Mark Meadows wrote on Twitter that the reveal was unimpressive. ...The White House press secretary’s office responded on Oct. 28 to Taylor’s revelation, saying he is “a liar and coward who chose anonymity over action and leaking over leading.”“He was ineffective and incompetent during his time as DHS Chief of Staff, which is why he was promptly fired after only serving in this role for a matter of weeks,” the statement continued. “It is appalling that a low-ranking official would be granted anonymity, and it is clear the New York Times is doing the bidding of Never-Trumpers and Democrats.”
