The Obama administration Monday abruptly halted plans to shelter some of the children surging across the border at a defunct college in rural Virginia, as the White House has continued to see its efforts to house the children throughout the country be thwarted by opposition from local officials.

As many as 500 children were to start arriving this week at St. Paul’s College, a recently closed historically black college in Lawrenceville, Virginia. But the Health and Human Services Department’s plans were stymied, at least temporarily, after town and county officials objected to the short notice and complete lack of community input

Immigration: Major businesses are calling for immigration reform this year, one that would include a massive amnesty for those here illegally. It might be good for their bottom lines, but it's bad for America's.

The Business Roundtable, a group of 208 major U.S. companies, has come up with its priority list for 2014. Not surprisingly, that list includes immigration reform.

Sounds innocent. But to the Roundtable, immigration "reform" includes "a path forward for undocumented workers already living in the United States." In other words, amnesty for those here illegally.

We're glad they think it would be good for them. But for the rest of us, amnesty would be a lousy deal. And it's not really reform — it's a surrender to open borders.

a co worker who recently changed his job hasn't got his last salary from his former employer. told me that he now has to live two weeks with 0 money and no food whatsoever. i offered him 100 euro for food - with the option to never pay it back if he can't afford it (you never know the real financial situation of a person). he declined - probably because he was ashamed or something. later he asked me if he could have 20. i think i'll give him 50. haven't seen him after work so i'll give it to him tomorrow.

i think he should sue his former employer. or at least open legal dunning proceedings. but it takes years until you reach a verdict here... :/ and until then he won't see any money.
