Legislators take tough first step in fixing state’s battered roadways

When the state Legislature did what it had to do to find a solution to start fixing California’s battered highways, bridges and roads, it did so on a mostly partisan manner that revealed a) Gov. Jerry Brown successfully pushed an unpopular tax and fee increase because $52 billion will not appear from out of thin air over the next 10 years; and, b) Republicans continue to mistrust Democrats whenever there is a tax increase, no matter what the cause is.


Congressman Nunes: Nation’s principles, integrity and district needs less important than protecting Trump

Congressman Devin Nunes has been derelict in carrying out his duties as a Member of Congress since his election in 2003. The most recent and notable negligence is his role in undermining his own investigation as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee of a precedent- setting provocation by Russia of our democracy. His convoluted explanations, logic and actions have placed this very important work in jeopardy of lacking the bipartisanship, integrity and thoroughness such an investigation must carry. His recusal from the Russia inquiry was announced shortly before the House Committee on Ethics made public that he was under investigation because he “may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information.”

Immigration crackdown handled badly

The Trump administration’s green light for immigration enforcement – from looking for hardened criminals to making sure that so-called dreamers were not affected – has gotten off on the wrong foot.


No one is advocating for open borders

The never-ending debate over this country’s immigration system will continue as long as folks on both sides of the imaginary wall continue to hurl alternative facts. As we have mentioned through the years, fixing a broken immigration system presents a complex problem with many moving parts.


Politics aside, Latinos have a reason to celebrate 2016

Who would have thought at the beginning of the year that a brash New York billionaire would become president? Or, that an icon in the Spanish-language music world would be dead? Or that the Chicago Cubs would be lifting their first World Series trophy in more than 100 years? Or that tacomania would sweep the country?
