On Thursday Feb. 22, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services changed its mission statement to embody America’s new agenda. The federal agency in charge of handling immigration in the U.S. has removed the phrase that indicated America was a “nation of immigrants.” The new statement now reads, "U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administers the nation's lawful immigration system, safeguarding its integrity and promise by efficiently and fairly adjudicating requests for immigration benefits while protecting Americans, securing the homeland and honoring our values."
Last Wednesday, students across the country took part in the national walkout in symbolic support of stricter gun laws. Naturally and reasonably, some people disagreed with the walkout for varying reasons. Instead of a walkout, some suggested, students should take part in a "walk up." Instead of a protest, the idea is that students would go up to kids who seem left out or alone and do something nice for them to make them feel welcome. In many respects, this is a good and necessary idea which should happen more often — but it is questionable with regard to the purpose at hand, which is to help solve the issue of gun violence in schools. Truthfully, neither demonstration will likely have a significant or direct impact on the issue.

Built in 1915 and one of Rutgers’ oldest landmarks, Ford Hall on the College Avenue campus is slated by the administration to be demolished. The building, which acted as a dormitory, was constructed with a donation of $110,000 by former Board of Trustees member John Howard Ford and was designed by Bertram Goodhue, a historically well renowned architect. Located across the street from the new Hillel House and not far from The Yard, Ford Hall does well to bring the old feel of Voorhees Mall to the increasingly gentrified College Avenue. In response to word of its intended destruction, a Change.org petition has been created to preserve the building, which has already garnered more than 300 signatures.
Our constant push-and-pull games regarding stricter gun control laws or the lack of desire to relinquish our right to bear arms has made our country into the biggest possible parody of itself. With students facing potential disciplinary actions by staging walkouts because of their fear of becoming sitting ducks in a classroom in a world of assault rifles — when will it end?
As the issue of gun control has continued to hold a prominent position in the national political discourse following last month’s school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, attempts at reform have been met with immense backlash from gun advocates who consider any further attempt at restricting access to guns to be antithetical to the Second Amendment. The most high-profile example of this comes from the National Rifle Association (NRA), who is filing a lawsuit against a new Florida law, which raises the minimum age to purchase a weapon from 18 to 21, claiming that it infringes on the Second and Fourteenth Amendment rights of those who are 18 to 20.
