Everyone has seen the bullied grandmother by 7th grade boy’s video. It’s amazing how videos can go viral and earn someone over half a million dollars. This week the Department of Education heard the call of the bullied grandmother and has developed training materials for bus drivers so that bullying on the bus won’t reach such reprehensible proportions.
Another big decision by the Supreme Court about immigration law will stop deportation of certain immigrants, but will allow police to demand a person’s immigration status by letting stand a provision allowing police to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws. AB 1081 (the TRUST Act), would give local governments the right to opt-out of the controversial Secure Communities program.
The Department of Education also allocated funds to 9 states for immigrant students, about $6 million for the High School Equivalency Program (HEP) and the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP). It will help migrant seasonal farm workers and their families to receive quality education.
At least the bullied grandmother and others who are treated so harshly get some compensation for all their hard work, but for some threatened by high under employment and unemployment, high taxes and low compensation means lower quality of life.
