    Ted Cruz Introduces Legislation To Make Mexican Drug Lord Pay For Border Wall – The Ring Of Fire

    Republican Senator, Ted Cruz has a plan to pay for Donald Trump’s border wall without making a dent in the Federal budget. According to legislation that Ted Cruz has introduced, he is going to have El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord pay for most, if not all of the border wall between the United States and Mexico. As it stands right now, the United States is trying to recover 14 billion dollars in assets from El Chapo. Ted Cruz has introduced legislation to just take that 14 billion and put all of it towards this border wall that most Americans do not want in the first place. Now, they’re are…

    Free To Choose 1980 – Who Protects the Worker?– Union Legislation

    Unions have long recognized that the surest and most effective way for them to get power without violence is to have the federal government on their side. That’s why so many strong unions have made it a point to locate their headquarters close to the source of power. The heads of the trade unions that cluster near Capitol Hill know this place very well. It is the room assigned to the Committee on Education and Labor of the House of Representatives, and it is where much of our labor legislation is discussed and shaped before presentation to Congress. I know rooms like this myself very well, because I’ve often testified…

    Restrictive Legislation Hurts Us All

    What do people who identify as one or more of the following have in common? They are all targets of restrictive legislation often by the very same lawmakers. ISPU gathered hard data from over 3,100 bills filed across all 50 U.S. states and found that between 2011 and 2017 lawmakers have proposed restrictive bills that limit access to the polls, immigration and asylum seeking, women’s reproductive rights, the rights of LGBTQ people, labor unions, and Muslim religious freedom. Among those proposed laws were 177 anti-shariah bills introduced in 37 state legislatures. But what do anti-shariah bills have to do with other kinds of restrictive legislation? Let’s look at one of…

    After failed legislative attempts on DACA, fate of ‘Dreamers’ lies with Supreme Court

    JUDY WOODRUFF: Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will hear arguments that could decide the fate of hundreds of thousands of dreamers. That’s the younger generation of undocumented immigrants brought to this country by their parents and protected from deportation. The justices will hear arguments over a series of lawsuits around the Obama era decision and President Trump’s efforts to end it. Whatever the outcome, it will be one of the signature decisions of this session and will land right in the middle of the 2020 campaign. Amna Nawaz looks at the stakes and how we got to this moment. AMNA NAWAZ: In 2012, then President Barack Obama was running for reelection…

    Party Systems: Crash Course Government and Politics #41

    Hello, I’m Craig and this is Crash Course Government and Politics. And today we’re gonna talk about, well, mostly history. Wait Stan, this isn’t Crash Course History. This must be some kind of exception, like the Mongols. [Mongoltage] Apparently we’re not stepping on anybody’s toes by talking about the history of American political parties, as long as we stay away from history in general. Thank goodness, we wouldn’t want to start a Crash Course interdisciplinary feud. Just kidding, I’m totally feuding with that Phil guy over at Astronomy. [Theme Music] Political historians like to divide America into eras according to which parties were active at the time. These are called…

    Adam Ruins Everything – How America Created the “Model Minority” Myth | truTV

    Boy, I’m sure glad we left the pool party, Trey. Math homework is way more fun! Computer, that’s the first thing you’ve ever said that doesn’t add up. (canned laughter) You’re so studious, Computer. Trey, you could learn a thing or two from his people. They’re very wise. (canned laughter) Whoa, time out! (whistle blowing) Here we go again! TV and movies are rampant with Asian stereotypes. Especially the idea that Asian people are some kind of “model minority.” Smart, successful, polite, obedient, and of course, inherently good at math. What’s the big deal? Those are all compliments. Well, these “compliments” actually originated in a government propaganda campaign. And not…

    The Try Guys Try Immigrating To America

Am I allowed to lie on this test? – Okay. – Both my parents are immigrants. But I have no idea what the steps are. I don’t know if they had to, like, submit head shots, or do like an audition reel. Hello, my name is Jay. I like freedom, rap music, and I like cowboy boots. American now? – Well, I’m Hiroshi…
