THE “PALMER RAIDS” OF 1919 – 1920 ARE BACK

THE “PALMER RAIDS” OF 1919 – 1920 ARE BACK

One news source http://www.newser.com/story/238213/major-raids-across-us-have-immigrants-panicking.html  described the raids on immigrants going on now this way:  "People are panicking." That's the message from one immigration lawyer after hundreds of undocumented immigrants were rounded up this week by ICE agents in raids in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and the Carolinas, the Washington Post reports.

THE UNIMPORTANCE OF TRUTH AND HONESTY IN AMERICA
