What should the state do about the undocumented population?

Opinion: Leaving these 10.5 million people without an economic safety net is extremely counterproductive and dangerous for the pandemic. Many undocumented immigrants are working in essential industries and don’t have paid sick days, which economically forces them to go to work even if they are sick.

The FIRST International Day of Conscience was observed online, right here on Facebook, with approximately 30000 views and responses from leaders around the world and the global community sharing their views on conscience in videos, photos and art. If you have never heard of this NEW United Nations day, this news coverage is a good start 🙂 #InternationalConscienceDay #ChangeTheWorldWithConscience
As the COVID-19 pandemic feeds global anxiety, we need the power of conscience now more than ever to transform the world. APRIL 5- Observe the FIRST International Day of Conscience - ONLINE!!! #InternationalConscienceDay #ChangeTheWorldWithConacience
What a great Track....
Many people join the ranks of champions of conscience during a Lunar New Year celebration:
“The time is always right to do what is right.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
See this this is at URM Downtown this has been here in the Courtyard about a week and it's Christmas and it's still her e this morning and wet it rained instead of taking the clothes to Donate they left them rats been all through them SHARE THIS..
These raves that the city allows to happen ONE BLOCK from our homes cause tons of disturbances, including even vibrating our entire home. Next weekend's event, the Secret Project Festival, will do this for 16 FULL HOURS. Not sure how this is legal, it's a full blown assault on citizens. But concert goers also flood our residential streets after the concert and loiter, yell, drive drunk. How can I get ANY CITY AGENCY to listen to our complaints and reduce the amount of pounding noise and possible safety threats to our residential streets? 1756 Naud Street is a very inappropriate location for a concert, especially one that is techno music. Raves usually take place in the desert or sports arenas. Not sure why citizens are expected to suffer for so many hours each year so some multi-million dollar company can make more money. These events cause us financial loss, physical agitation, stress, rob us of hours of rest etc. Our community receives NO BENEFITS WHATSOEVER from this pounding noise. PLEASE LET US KNOW WHERE COMPLAINTS CAN BE LISTENED TO THIS IS GETTING VERY TIRESOME AND MAKING US ANGRY
