Dimaya that has received extensive press attention because Justice Gorsuch cast the deciding vote against the Trump administration. The opinion is available here: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/17pdf/15-1498_1b8e.pdf.

Reporter wanted to nail Trump with a ‘gotcha’ on human trafficking, instead she stepped on a rake – Washington Examiner

He added, “Human trafficking is worse than it’s ever been in the history of the world.” Of the many things Trump…

Brennan Excoriates Fathers’ Depictions in Pop Culture

April 18, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Terry Brennan’s fifth article in his series on fatherlessness takes on communications media depictions of Dad, both now and around mid-century (Daily Caller, 4/17/18). That of course seems always to be an issue. Have movies, television programs, advertising and the like improved over the last, say, 20 years? They have.

Erie County, NY Child Protective Services: Not Enough Caseworkers, Too Little Pay

April 16, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization As we’ve seen from California to Arizona to Texas to Mississippi and South Carolina, the serious business of protecting children from abusive and neglectful adults isn’t taken very, well, seriously by states.
