Immigration law not applied fairly- Cubans have it easier

Consider the bizarre situation at our southern border. A wave of migrants is expected to appear there, hoping for safe passage into the U.S. and an expedited path to legal status and eventually full citizenship. They will get it.

These lucky migrants won’t be Mexicans fleeing drug cartels. They won’t be Hondurans, who must endure the world’s highest murder rate. And they won’t be citizens of El Salvador, where the Peace Corps just suspended operations because of increasing violence.

No, we deport those people.

They will be Cubans. In recent months, increasing numbers of Cubans have been leaving their island country, flying to Ecuador first and then traveling northward through Central America. They wish to migrate to the U.S., fearful that thawing diplomatic relations will end the special treatment that Cubans who leave the island have long received.

That special treatment needs to end.

Sid Miller has been sued

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is facing a lawsuit from a former agency employee who says she lost her job because of her race.  

Shelia Latting, who is black, filed a lawsuit in state district court in Travis County Tuesday, claiming she lost her job a year ago as deputy chief financial officer due to racial discrimination at the agency.  

“We’ve established race discrimination by the mere fact that they terminated a highly qualified woman with an excellent history with the state and replaced her with two Caucasians who were less qualified,” said Susan Haney, Latting’s attorney
