Know Anyone Who Thinks Racial Profiling Is Exaggerated? Watch This, And Tell Me When Your Jaw Drops.


This video clearly demonstrates how racist America is as a country and how far we have to go to become a country that is civilized and actually values equal justice. We must not rest until this goal is achieved. I do not want my great grandchildren to live in a country like we have today. I wish for them to live in a country where differences of race and culture are not ignored but valued as a part of what makes America great.

"If she obtained her green card through the 'Extraordinary Ability' category what was the basis of her claim?" asks David Leopold, an immigration attorney who once served as president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and who supports Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. "The law requires a showing of sustained national or international acclaim and that her achievements have been recognized in her field. 'Extraordinary ability' is defined as 'a level of expertise indicating that the individual is one of that small percentage who have risen to the very top of the field of endeavor."

To meet that qualification, Trump would have had to offer "evidence that the alien has sustained national or international acclaim and that his or her achievements have been recognized in the field of expertise." That can be something like a Nobel Prize, for example. Otherwise, there's a list of things from which Trump would have needed to demonstrate three examples. The list is not insignificant, requiring membership in organizations based on merit, leadership positions at distinguished organizations or publication "in major trade publications or other major media." Which of those boxes Trump checked isn't clear.

Leopold also noted that Trump's description of having to return to Slovenia each year to renew her visa, something that Wildes said was necessitated by her particular sort of visa, doesn't comport with his experience. As he noted, that's more common for a tourist visa."
