The actions of those among us and those in the positions above us speak volumes about the corruptibility of human nature as the elected President of this country is empowered enough to impose upon us bigotry in the form of a Muslim ban.
The cost of ending the government shutdown this week was the shutting down of something else: a lot of hope. When 33 Democrats in Senate voted to end the recent government shutdown with a temporary spending bill to Feb. 8 instead of resisting the pressure, the hope for DACA beneficiaries plunged a little deeper into the ground.
