In their first official meeting, the President of the United States and the Indian Prime Minister talked about trade and defense cooperation, terrorism, but avoided immigration and climate change, issues in which both leaders differ. India is the country most affected by Trump's decision to tighten controls on granting the H-1B visa, which benefits foreign workers.

[OP-ED]: Who’s afraid of the ‘administrative state’?

 03/07/2017 - 15:28
It’s time to make the administrative state a mainstream concept, through the creation of a regulatory budget. The point is not to justify the instant repeal of most rules, as Bannon’s critics fear, but to improve understanding and accountability.

Just what White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon meant when he recently suggested “deconstructing the administrative state” is unclear. To critics, he would gut the whole superstructure of social and environmental safeguards, starting with the Environmental Protection Agency (which, say news reports, may face a staff cut of one-fifth). But regardless of Bannon’s meaning, the relentless growth of the administrative state is a reality that we can’t escape.

On Monday, the Fifth Circuit Appeals Court ruled to uphold the block on President Obama’s November 2014 executive action on immigration. The result of the ruling has long been a forgone conclusion, but the delay in issuing the ruling is raising eyebrows.

Generalizaciones no sirven

Cuando la gente se apasiona, se vuelve descuidada.

Ésa siempre ha sido mi queja con los activistas de la inmigración, ya sea con el lobby que exige fronteras abiertas o con los nativistas que piden sellar el país y esconder a niños y mujeres. En su celo por probar que su solución es las mejor para el futuro de nuestro país, cometen el error de generalizar excesivamente el término "inmigrante".
