During an interview, Iowa Republican congressman Steve King speaking on the adoption of DACA stated “I don’t think we thought through this very well.” I believe he’s egregiously dismissive of the consideration that was indeed given to the issues regarding the implementation of DACA. Ironically I believe his statement more accurately reflects the situation regarding the repeal of DACA. The military has nearly 900 individuals serving in the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) Pilot Program. If they are indeed “vital” then what happens if they can no longer serve? And in this short piece The Atlantic raises the question about the status of DACA recipients working in the health care field.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
