Imrati was killed when she raised her voice against the injustice.

Recommendation 2 from ‘The NY Times’

Article Name:‘Clean water and the spruce mine’

By: ‘Editorial’

An organisation like environment protection agency should have the right to revoke the licences, if there is damage to the environment, even if licence revoking power clause is not mentioned in any act. Such organisations work on the level where these know what kind of work is done or not. So, in every case courts should take E.P.A like organisation’s view into consideration regarding revoking of licences.

Summary:

The article talks about Obama administration’s decision to revoke the permit of a huge mine in West Virginia, as it could and was causing unacceptable damage to the environment. However, Judge Amy Berma Janckson that E.P.A had resorted to magical thinking by claiming that under Clean Water Act hey had the right to revoke the permit, so the judge has rules that E.P.A had exceeded it authority by doing so. So, now Obama administration has to re-appeal and as the article states that we trust the higher court will read the Clean Water Act in the same way as E.P.A did.

Recommendation 3 from ‘The NY Times’

Article Name:‘A dream act without the dream’

By: ‘Editorial’

Of course, when it comes to controlling the inflow of illegal immigrants in one’s country, people might resort to things and acts as mentioned in the article. However, they have missed the point again, which is that illegal immigrants are those who cannot come to the country easily due to financial and legal constraints. Instead of restricting people to just legal status, they should focus on making the entry process tough, but at the same time friendly and yes, assimilate, as the article states.

Summary:

The article talks about a stripped down version of dream act of Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, which says that unauthorized immigrants can be given a legal status without the citizenship, as it is feared that if given citizenship they might end up sponsoring their relatives to enter legally. However, the article states that this act has shimmer, but without any promise for the future. The article states that the only act that needs to be passed is simple that says to every individual who comes to America to make of themselves whatever they want to. Further, the article states that republicans and acts stating the contrary have strayed from the American values of welcome and assimilation.
