President Barack Obama's effort in 2014 to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation was one of his top achievements on immigration.

The program should have rolled out this year, but zealots who are determined to block any immigration reforms are fighting to ensure that his order will remain tied up in legal battles.

Letters To The Editor

Dear Editor,

I do not understand why it is taking so long to remove the Confederate flag from South Carolina's state capitol. The flag represents one thing only: slavery.

This is not what I think or believe, it's a fact. If there was no slavery, no Civil War, which means no Confederate flag. Pretty simple, right?

Some southerners claim it is their heritage. Really? Your heritage is to enslave, beat and hang black people from trees?

What scares me is what are these southerners who claim the Confederate flag is their heritage teaching their children?
