Someone, that even if they had every teacher they ever went to school with pointing at graphs and every person they ever knew showing them pictures while both parents and best friend have there arms around them pointing to the sun, still does not believe its day time because Drumpf said it’s NIGHT and everyone else is FAKE NEWS
someone who has given up all free thought to bow to his master god who is a living person that has brainwashed them to think that he is infallible
~Mass Deportation May Sound Unlikely, But It’s Happened Before~
Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s proposal to deport all 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally, along with their U.S.-born children, sounds far-fetched. But something similar happened before.
During the 1930’s and into the 1940’s, up to 2 million Mexicans and Mexican-Americans were deported or expelled from cities and towns across the U.S. and shipped to Mexico. According to some estimates, more than half of these people were U.S. citizens, born in the United States.
It’s a largely forgotten chapter in history that Francisco Balderrama, a California State University historian, documented in Decade of Betrayal: Mexican Repatriation in the 1930’s. He co-wrote that book with the late historian Raymond Rodriguez.
“There was a perception in the United States that Mexicans are Mexicans,” Balderrama said. “Whether they were American citizens, or whether they were Mexican nationals, in the American mind – that is, in the mind of government officials, in the mind of industry leaders – they’re all Mexicans.
So ship them home.”
It was the Great Depression, when up to a quarter of Americans were unemployed and many believed that Mexicans were taking scarce jobs. In response, federal, state and local officials launched so-called “repatriation” campaigns.
They held raids in workplaces and in public places, rounded up Mexicans and Mexican-Americans alike, and deported them.
The most famous of these was in downtown Los Angeles’ Placita Olvera in 1931.

Today, Torres serves on the board of La Plaza de Cultura y Artes in Los Angeles, a Mexican-American cultural center. In front of it stands a memorial that the state of California dedicated in 2012, apologizing to the hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens who were illegally deported or expelled during the Depression.
“It was a sorrowful step that this country took,” Torres said. “It was a mistake. And for Trump to suggest that we should do it again is ludicrous, stupid and incomprehensible.”
On August 12, 2012, the inaugural World Elephant Day was launched to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants. The elephant is loved, revered and respected by people and cultures around the world, yet we balance on the brink of seeing the last of this magnificent creature.
The escalation of poaching, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and mistreatment in captivity are just some of the threats to both African and Asian elephants. Working towards better protection for wild elephants, improving enforcement policies to prevent the illegal poaching and trade of ivory, conserving elephant habitats, better treatment for captive elephants and, when appropriate, reintroducing captive elephants into natural, protected sanctuaries are the goals that numerous elephant conservation organizations are focusing on around the world.
World Elephant Day asks you to experience elephants in non-exploitive and sustainable environments where elephants can thrive under care and protection. On World Elephant Day, August 12, express your concern, share your knowledge and support solutions for the better care of captive and wild elephants alike.
The Trump-Univision feud had its source in the real estate mogul’s verbose presidential campaign announcement on June 16 in New York City in which he complained about rapists and other criminals allegedly coming across the southern border from Mexico.
A huge backlash resulted, and Univision subsequently announced that it was terminating its business relationship with Trump’s firm — including pulling the plug on broadcasting the July 12 Miss USA Pageant — because of the reality TV star’s “insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants.”
In a letter to the Spanish-language network today, Trump notified the company’s CEO that Univision employees are no longer allowed to use the Trump National Doral resort or golf course which is a neighbor to Univision’s Miami campus. He also told his counterpart to close the gate between the two properties.
Trump’s letter to Univision contained this postscript
“Please congratulate your Mexican Government officials for having made such outstanding trade deals with the United States.
However, inform them that should I become President, those days are over.
We are bringing jobs back to the U.S. Also, a meaningful border will be immediately created, not the laughingstock that currently exists.”
