Destroying our job market with a trickle down effect
……One of the largest and most influential trade unions in the country is calling out Democrats for boosting guest worker programs and open borders policies.
North America’s Building Trades Unions—an umbrella organization representing three million workers and 15 major unions, including the Laborers and Teamsters—sent outgoing Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D., Md.) a letter Thursday accusing her of selling out workers by importing foreigners to work for “Close to Slavery” wages. Mikulski pushed for increasing the number of temporary H2B visas that allow companies to bring guest workers to the United States to fill seasonal jobs.
……….. “Flooding a loose labor market such as the construction industry with additional low-skill labor hurts the wages and reduces the job prospects of both recent immigrants and native-born workers who are struggling the most. To be blunt, Senator, your actions will induce a race to the bottom on wages and benefits for U.S. workers.”….
Nothing will change until fathers take responsibility
The new goals of the department were clear, easy-to-understand and distributed to department employees on business cards. Focused on home ownership, reducing homelessness, ridding drugs from public housing and jobs and economic development in the inner cities, the mission of the department quickly became ingrained in the organization’s culture. Contrast that with the present approach where addressing climate change and an ill-defined goal of “strengthening rural, tribal, suburban, and urban communities” pit HUD bureaucrats against an alphabet soup of other departments and agencies vying to advance politically-correct philosophy.
Unlike the Washington-centric approach today, Kemp routinely visited public housing projects in ghettos across America, promoting tenant ownership and enabling residents to seize control of property from notoriously corrupt local public housing authorities. Following the Los Angeles riots in 1992, sparked by a police confrontation with Rodney King, President Bush and Secretary Kemp visited the city, challenging conventional wisdom on urban renewal policies. President Obama and current Secretary Julian Castro, on the other hand, stayed away from Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, choosing instead to announce grants…”
……..Just three years ago, Holloway spoke of how her life was taking a turn for the better.
“Boy, have I come a long ways,” Holloway said in a 2012 video by the Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center, which helps at-risk youth with education and career training.

What kind of fathering did Lakeisha have? What kind of fathering or no fathering did her child have?
Youths with fathering like Lakeisha are fodder for terrorist grooming and/or gang grooming
Assuredly, exceptionalist fathering would have stopped this from happening.
Fathers are the main problem
Fathers are the solution.
“Let’s get rocks; let’s get bricks, and let’s get bottles,”Stokes told CNN affiliate WJTV. “And we’ll start throwing them, and then they won’t come in here anymore.”
“When you have these police officers coming from other jurisdictions and they will not respect human life, then I said we should use rocks, bricks or bottles to try to get the message over: stop endangering our children,” Stokes told Jackson’s The Clarion-Ledger newspaper.“
If he wants to stop endangering children, teach them to obey ALL laws and never to run from the police.
Shifting blame onto the police will only accelerate the problem
