  3. Gina Barton, of USA TODAY, is a fake-news journalist. She twisted the truth to portray a false narrative. The following partial narrative is much closer to the truth:
    “Those brave souls….”, said the 24-year-old Jeremiah telling a lie, knowing full well those he spoke of were cowards, “They were heroes,” Said the racist, telling another lie.
    The cowards that rushed to harm Rittenhouse had no interest in peace or justice. Even the shooting of Anthony Huber was justified. Huber, had used his skateboard as a weapon against the young man. Huber acted without any care that the youth was but acting in self-defense. Both Jeremiah and Huber had chosen to join the hate-group of BLM whose mission was to incite a race war. Jeremiah even admitted to the fake-news journalist that he was a member of an organized mob that had been traveling around the country with the intent to cause violence and incite other protestors and members of looting mobs to do the same.

  4. So who pays for it ? Million people world wide came to USA and pay for education… make free education for everyone

    It takes courage to share your personal journey with the media. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. If a USA American visits a foreign country we are treated respectfully and are showered with exposure to their culture and land. Why should anyone who comes to America be treated indifferent? Current WH occupant feeds his ego in mistreatments of brown migrants. His ego implodes when his directive to traumatize children is carried out. November 2020 is one of the most important elections of my life time. I am a Republican & a Christian! I believe in moral conduct when it comes to leadership! I believe our Savior is displeased when Proverbs 6:16-19 is played out in our lives w/no regard of the suffering!

  8. Undocumented is illegal

  9. Your level of entitlement is astronomical. How about fix your status by leaving and coming back legally before you demand anything?
