Editorial: Congress must seize the moment to provide legal status for Dreamers and TPS holders



Now for the politics. With Democrats in charge of the House and in control of the tie-breaking vote in the Senate, and with a Democratic president, this may be a unique moment to finally push through legislation that would provide legal status for the Dreamers and for long-term TPS recipients. To that end, bills to give Dreamers and TPS recipients a path to citizenship have been introduced in both houses.

Now that the Covid Relief Act is just about done...

Iíd like to see them focus on an immigration bill that grants DACA and TPS holders permanent status. I have a vested interest in this. My husband from Honduras has been here since 1997 and TPS since 1998 and has been working and paying taxes and is not a criminal and shouldnít be forced to go back to Honduras.

Cold in Houston!

Well it started out with no internet from Comcast and spotty service from T-Mobile but my electricity was on and I was comfortable. I just couldnít work because I work from home on the internet.

Then no water and at 10:36 pm on Tuesday the electricity went out. It came back on Wednesday morning about 2:30am but went out about 9am went out again. I went to a friendís house who had electricity for a few hours (my husband stayed home in the cold because my friend has animals that mess with his allergies.). I came home because he was hungry but all I could find to bring home were Doritos and bean dip and coffee. It teased me for about 5 minutes when the electricity came on and went right back out.

Iím sitting in my car charging my phone and getting warm. Itís 55 degrees in the house.


Update: We now have electricity. Still no water for bathing or dishes. We are under boil water orders but no water to boil. But due to my husbandís niece, we now have plenty of drinking water.

I have a question about Covid-19

Anyone live somewhere where there is a curfew because of Covid-19?

I have to say I donít understand why they would institute a curfew as a COVID-19 measure. How does that help? I understand the mask mandate. I understand banning large group gatherings. But how does making me be home by 10 keep me safe from a virus. I mean, if I get in my car and drive around by myself at 3am or take a walk by myself, how is that any more unsafe (virus wise) than doing the same thing at 6pm?

I love watching reaction videos

These young black twins listening to Smooth, Santana with Robb Thomas



They have a YouTube channel where they listen to music theyíve never heard of as varied as Phil Collins, Dolly Parton and Adele.
