While it would be prudent for President Donald J. Trump to proclaim that the state of our union is “strong” when he faces the nation for his 2018 State of the Union Address, behind the scenes there is no clearer evidence for the division that has been sewn throughout this country than the immigration debate. But while the debate that surrounded last week’s short-lived government shutdown about the future of former President Barack Obama-era's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was centered around Republicans and Democrats, the more interesting divide on the immigration debate exists solely within the Republican Party, with the ethnic concerns of hardline nationalists clashing with the business interests of the establishment right.
As of 2018, Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake has become one of the most game-changing politicians that the country has witnessed since President Donald J. Trump’s continuously disappointing presidency. Much of the objection to our president was never about the electing of a Republican or even the differing views regarding immigration and citizenship status. Instead, what was truly infuriating is the president’s incapability to stand up for what he believed in. That is right — even for someone as pugnacious as Trump, instead of facing criticism, the only thing he was really capable of doing was wagging his finger and claiming that everything that did not inflate his ego was “fake.”
The first time I ever read The Daily Targum was in 2015 – the special magazine-style summer edition that was sent right to my front door.

The attempted invalidation of news sources, even the most prestigious and well-respected of them, has become rampant in this country despite the fact that the press is one of our nation’s most important institutions. The press is seen by many as the “fourth branch” of the government, with an unparalleled ability to check for wrongdoings and hold officials accountable for their actions. This is part of the reason blatant attacks on the media which aim for its collapse are somewhat puzzling, especially when these attacks come from advocates for a less powerful central government.

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.
