Late-day news yesterday revealed how Trump may have potentially abused his presidential powers by having two former FBI agents, who just happened to be critics of him, subjected to in-depth IRS audits. It’s serious enough that some law professors are opining the legal ramifications and others are stirred to launch a ‘Safeguarding Democracy’ project;...

For as long as Latina Lista has existed (2004-present), I have been advocating for DACA. In short, it’s the program that has recognized offspring of undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children should not be penalized for their parents’ actions. The white extremist factions have always wanted to do away with the program. Now, that they’ve succeeded...

Saying politics is an ugly business is a sadly laughable understatement, even more so these days in the US.

Overnight, 46 men, women and children desperately fleeing their homes elsewhere to find peace and opportunity in the United States were found either dead or half alive in the back of a locked, unventilated 18-wheeler trailer. The story is not new, nor are these people’s motivation for coming. Yet, the Texas governor and other Republicans immediately...

National polling reports that the majority of Americans disagree with the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling, and many fear other precedent court cases upholding or strengthening individual rights and liberties will also be targeted by a court that many are starting to see as extremist and ruling on ideology rather than law; In the meantime, the economy...
