    Do you also have the numbers of those Hispanics/Latinos who, after living in the country for many years, or even decades (with studying or having a regular job), now are going to be expelled from the country (or are in danger of getting expelled), due to Trumpian changes of certain policies (like the DREAM act)?

    • Obama had greater job creation growth for all groups.



      How I miss hearing this man and seeing him in the oval office. And that smile. I almost want to cry for this country.

      ​​​​​Btw, wage growth and job growth is slowing under Trump. Wage growth for most Americans has actually started to decline!!!
      For there is [another] kind of violence, slower but just as deadly, destructive as the shot or the bomb in the night. This is the violence of institutions -- indifference, inaction, and decay. This is the violence that afflicts the poor, that poisons relations between men because their skin has different colors. - Bobby Kennedy (Mindless Menance of Violence)

        My partner is here on DACA. It has been hell. He may be able to renew only because of court order. Now I am trying to petition for him so he can get his green card. ****ing costly and the lawyer said the process has slowed to a crawl under Trump.

                You should be thanking Obama. The numbers were far improved under him. But now job growth is slowing and wages are starting to decline.

                            She betrayed her liberal leaning state and went against the wishes of her constituents. No worry. She will be gone by 2020. They are already funneling money to any opponent.
