"I’m a Latina and here's why I support Trump and his immigration plan" - Denise Galvez, co-founder of Latinas for Trump

Excerpt from http://www.cnbc.com - Politics
See the entire article here: Latinas For Trump
No matter your race (black, white, Asian, or Latino) or where you stand on immigration (Left or Right) – something has to give. As a Cuban-American living in the immigrant-rich city of Miami, I see the beauty of the diverse cultures converging in this country firsthand. But like so many Latinas and Latinos in this country, I consider myself American first. I appreciate all of what this wonderful country has to offer and the democracy and freedom it has provided me, probably even more so than most -- thanks, in part, to the incredible stories of struggle passed on by my parents and grandparents.
But Latina or not, the American Dream comes at a price — It comes with strings attached such as the profound belief in and the support of Democracy, the Bill of Rights and the laws that govern this country and its sovereignty. A growing number of Latinas and Latinos just like myself agree with Mr. Donald J. Trump on his plans for immigration because it puts America and its citizens first. While some may see that as lack of compassion to the millions of illegals living in this country, I see it as an appreciation and respect for this country and the hard-working Americans who came before us and made this great nation what it is today.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos Says
Common Core is NO MORE!
During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump vowed to end the disastrous Common Core – a failed experiment where the federal government took over the education of our children.
And, true to his promise, that’s exactly what is happening.
On Monday, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said Common Core is no longer an issue for states.
“There’s isn’t really any Common Core anymore, and each state is able to set the standards for their state,” DeVos told Fox News.
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said Monday that Common Core isn’t an issue states have to deal with anymore.
“There’s isn’t really any Common Core anymore, and each state is able to set the standards for their state,” Ms. DeVos said on Fox News.
Instead, the department is focusing on the Every Student Succeeds Act, which was passed in December 2015 but is still in the process of being implemented. It replaces the No Child Left Behind Act, but gives states more authority in how to rate and address schools’ performance.
It also prohibits the department from influencing states to adopt Common Core, a set of educational standards all 50 states could opt into with the possibility of receiving federal grants depending on their performance.
“The Every Student Succeeds Act, which is in the process of being implemented now, essentially does away with the whole argument about Common Core,” Ms. Devos said
