Hundreds of women across America, and the whole world, stayed at home from work yesterday to demonstrate how much women contribute to the U.S. economy. This kind of strike may be an example of how Trump’s presidencycould be revitalizing American democracy.

#LosEsclavosNoSonInmigrantes El por qué Ben Carson está equivocado

 03/09/2017 - 03:39

“De eso trata América, una tierra de sueños y oportunidades”, dijo Carson. “Hubo otros inmigrantes que vinieron aquí en el fondo de barcos esclavistas, trabajaron por mucho más tiempo, más arduamente y por mucho menos. Pero ellos también tuvieron el sueño de que algún día, sus hijos, hijas, nietos, nietas, bisnietos y bisnietas pudieran ser prósperos y conseguir la felicidad en esta tierra”.

"That's what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity," Carson said. "There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.”

The approval of a new Law on Crimes of Human Trafficking, which identifies prostitution with exploitation, plus the closing down of tolerance zones where prostitution is permitted, have forced sex workers into dangerous areas. One of the darker aspects of the trade is police persecution, since cops have been known to abuse their authority over women working illegally.

 El Alcalde Kenney ruega por la unidad durante su discurso sobre el presupuesto
Spanish

El Alcalde Kenney ha lanzado su segundo presupuesto y su Plan de Cinco Años, pidiéndole a los miembros del Ayuntamiento que aprueben nuevas inversiones en dos áreas clave: salud y servicios humanos que podrían mejorar las comunidades más vulnerables, y las iniciativas creadoras de trabajo que resultarán en una oportunidad económica para todos los Filadelfianos.

Pero sus esfuerzos parecieran permanecer opacados por una inquietud persistente que rodea la ciudad y la política en Filadelfia.
