Philly.com Mixed-status families highlight immigration issues Philly.com In January, her husband of more than a decade, Israel Resendiz Hernandez, 34, a construction contractor, was arrested by immigration agents in Norristown.
Abigail Beinborn's insight:
Immigration is another public policy issue the government has had for years. The 14th amendment, all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States, protects their children as U.S. citizens. There are a lot of mixed emotions about this topic. It is sad that their dad is going through all these charges that could lead to death, but what he did many times is illegal. Immigration is a very controversial topic in government and with citizens.

Abigail Beinborn's insight:
There has been a lot of discussion about privacy with phone calls and texting. I think is a big issue with a lot of people and phone privacy. I think the government needs to give people more privacy unless there is a probably cause.
This is an interesting issue the government haD. Many places, like Minnesota, have to show an ID to vote. Different states, such as Texas, decided not to have to show an ID. I think without the ID, there could be a lot of issues that follow.
I think this is a great thing the government provides. There are many that can't afford a nicer car that functions properly. When you go to a car lot, they have to make money by selling it for more than they received it. This gives people the chance to afford a nicer vehicle for transportation.
This article makes a lot of great points. The constitution is made so people don't have too much power. It is made to limit the people and government. We have developed against the constitution in some ways, such as people having different wealths and classes.
Obama violates the first amendment, right of religion. He is not letting soldiers express their freedom of religion. He is violating the constitution which relates to government and law. I think this is very sad that our president who can express his religion won't let his own citizens fighting for our country express their religion.

This article relates to government. Government is trying to get access to people's personal business. Google is growing with users. The government thinks if they get access to the user accounts, it will help them get evidence when they need it. They shouldn't need to get access to personal documents unless they are suspicious.
Analysis: Recent stories have shown bloggers and reporters are posting pictures up and doing things such as videotaping police. Emily Good of Rochester, NY was recently caught by a cop when videotaping him off of her camera. He went over to her and told her to stop and stated it was illegal. When taken to court, she was later charged with obstruction of justice for arguing with a police officer. As it turned out, the police officer was wrong. Videotaping the police and anyone else in a public place is perfectly legal in New York state. The chief of police apologized later on and found out that the 1st amendment does protect these citizens who are deciding to do this. I don't agree with the 1st amendment toward this situation. I feel that everybody should have their own privacy, especially a cop. Why should somebody be able to videotape somebody else or take pictures of somebody else if it isn't okay with the person being captured on camera? I know that if somebody was videotaping me or taking pictures of me, i would feel that its against my personal property and i would definitely say something. I do agree with the 1st amendment, but when it comes to invading personal property, i feel its not right.
this article relates to the 1st amendment and freedom of speech. this article is asking if freedom of speech applies to internet bloggers
This article relates to the constition. It relates specifically to the first amendment which is freedom of expression. This person videotaping the police should not have gotten charged with anything because he was not violating any laws.
Do You Have What It Takes To Pass The US Citizenship Test? Huffington Post These questions were taken from the 100 civics questions about U.S. history and government given to applicants for naturalization by the U.S.
This is the test that immigrant have to take in order to become a U.S. Citizen. It is not an easy test. They have to have a lot of knowledge of the country. Many people born in the U.S. Cannot even pass this.Gaining citizenship is not an easy task, but it is needed if you want to legally live here.
Government spending has led to a massive debt. I believe there are ways we can spend less to help reduce our debt, but we can't stop spending governemnt money. We have to pay for the troops that fight for our country and many other people and things to keep this country going. We need to watch our government spending more closely and cautiously.
There is really no perfect minimum wage. This has been a public policy issue for a long time. Many people complain about their hourly wage. They don't sit back and look at the positives of their job over others. This article shows a lot of perks to a minimum wage job. Being paid overtime is a big perk because many people work overtime, but don't get paid any extra for staying late. This article showed that working at McDonalds is not as bad as some think it is. The government has been in a big debate of what the minimum wage should be. What the people need to make in order to have a family and afford all the expenses.
This can be a big issue when the government isn't getting taxes out of paychecks. People are breaking the law by not getting taxes pulled on their pay rolls. Their are exceptions, like if you get paid in cash. I think that people are sneaking out of taxes because taxes can pull a lot out of your pay checks.
I thought this was an interesting article. The government is giving hackers and technology smart people the opportunity to hack into systems. I feel that this is giving the wrong message to some by giving people the okay to hack into systems. It may also educate some into different technology skills.
In this case, the judge found that police had illegally questioned someone about a crime they commited. The woman being questioned was denied her right to having a lawyer present and she never consented to the questioning. Also, the police made an effort to downplay the importance of her 5th amendment rights. All of these things are a clear violation of the 5th amendment.
This article relates to the law. They are breaking many aspects of the fifth amendment. Everyone has equal rights and should be given the same opportunity. They violated the lady's right she had in court. They should be held at lawsuit for their actions.
The second amendment is the right to bear arms. There has been a lot of controversy over starting a new law stating that you don't have the right to bear arms. That would go against the second amendment in the constitution. There are different ways to make it safer for citizens, such as making it more difficult to buy a gun or go through testing.
This article talks about custody over the mother and father for a child which relates well to the government. Parents have to go to court, which is ran by government, to gain custody of their child after a divorce or separation. Some fathers get very little custody and think it is unfair for the mom to get more custody. It can go both ways. Who do you think should get more custody?
Federalism is not a gift that Washington bestows on state houses and city halls. Rather, it is a special, often dormant, vehicle for galvanizing and unleashing the talents and energies of an entrepreneurial nation. The president has an historic opportunity to usher in a new era of pragmatic, collaborative federalism that capitalizes on the economic power of metros and the policy creativity of state and local leaders. Remaking federalism is the path toward an economy that is productive, sustainable and inclusive. More broadly, it can be a vehicle for economic prosperity, fiscal solvency and political comity—if the next president is willing to take it.
This article relates well to government and law. It talks specifically about federalism. I think it was smart to remake federalism to have a positive impact on the economy. It was good timing to make these adjustmemts.
