 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.

[OP-ED]: Hacer de los inmigrantes chivos expiatorios es ahora política oficial

 03/02/2017 - 10:35
Personas detenidas esperan su turno en la cárcel de la Cuarta Avenida, en Phoenix, Arizona. Los cambios en las políticas del sucesor del polémico Joe Arpaio en la Oficina del Alguacil del Condado de Maricopa (MCSO) en Arizona, Paul Penzone, quedan patentes con la liberación de una treintena de personas que estaban detenidas por orden del Servicio de Inmigración y Aduanas (ICE). EFE

Sí, ya lo sé, esto pudiera parecer escandaloso, pero después de escuchar la deplorable reacción de tantos expertos y comentaristas al discurso pronunciado por Donald Trump el martes, he comenzado a entender por qué le ha sido tan fácil a este satanizar la prensa.

Detainees await their turn at the Fourth Avenue jail in Phoenix, Arizona. Changes in the policies of the controversial Joe Arpaio's successor at the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Arizona, Paul Penzone, are evident in the release of about thirty people who were detained on the orders of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Yes, I know, this sounds scandalous, but after watching the deplorable reaction of so many pundits and experts to Tuesday’s speech by the showman in the White House, I am beginning to understand why it has been so easy for him to demonize the press.

When a liberal city faces a conservative presidential administration, the result is a battle similar to David and Goliath.

But as the city bands together to protect it's values and diversity, it's clear that David is pulling back his slingshot.
