The US Supreme Court Voted to Protect Dreamers

On June 18, the US Supreme Court voted (5-4) to protect nearly 650,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation. The Trump administration had proposed to dismantle DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), but for now, the dreamers will be able to continue to study, work, and live in the in the country where they have spent most of their lives. This article gives a clear explanation of DACA and its current status.

Here’s a response from one DACA recipient.

 

NASCAR Racing Community Rallies to Support Bubba Wallace

This is a good news, bad news, good news situation. I believe the good news outweighs the bad and shows overall progress. First, NASCAR heeded the call from Bubba Wallace, their only black full time top level NASCAR driver, to ban confederate flags from NASCAR. Then there was a backlash. A noose was found in Bubba Wallace’s NASACAR garage. The FBI is doing a full investigation. Third, the NASCAR community has shown clear and overwhelming support for Bubba, escorting his car in a mass show of solidarity at Monday’s race. ( Update: The video has become unavailable, most likely due to new developments in the case. I still feel the support was good news.)

A Bride’s Surprise

José Vitor Flach married speech therapist Cíntia Bonfante Pereira recently in Brazil.  José wanted to do something special for his bride who works with children with down syndrome. Watch the her surprise as Cintia sees her students coming with flowers and rings.

Got good news?
