Me + @doubleuill. #Whistleblowers for #peace in #Congo #fallingwhistle #Africa #deadliestConflict (at Washington D.C)

It’s been a while…

So, excuse my word vomit:

Obama #2terms. Sandy Cook.
Boston Marathon. Hilary Clinton has a Twitter. Zimmerman was acquitted. LeBron won…again. Pierce & KG are now Nets?! Kerry Washington got MARRIED. House of Cards is my new obsession. John Kerry-SOS. Susan Rice -National Security Advisor. DOMA. SCOTUS. VOTING RIGHTS. FOX’s: The Real. Kate & William: it’s a boy!

I’m back…

My Taxes Are Documented. I Am Not.

Undocumented American workers paid $11.2 billion in taxes in 2010 — putting money INTO systems like health care, Social Security, and education, not taking it out. Attacks on American immigrants have claimed the opposite. Ironically, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection annual budget is $3.5 billion — an amount covered by undocumented Americans three times over. Share this with someone who doesn’t see the value that new Americans bring to our communities every day through their work and through their paychecks.
