Strengthening, deepening bonds with México By President Barack Obama
Obviously, the bonds between México and the United States are long and deep, not only because of economic ties and strategic ties between our two countries, but most importantly because of the people-to-people and cultural ties between our two countries.

We are going to defend our rights
History is being made in the tomato fields of Florida. In the past, as women in the fields, we used to face sexual harassment on a daily basis.

Time for Congress to catch up to reality
Last week we celebrated Veteran’s Day. So naturally there was a lot of talk about the military. But there was also a lot of talk about President Obama taking executive action on immigration and it got me thinking about Harry S. Truman.

Election day loser: the 'American voters'

Get ready for the real fight
Debacle. Bloodbath. Call it what you will. Democrats, as expected, fared poorly in red states in an off-year election. Worse, unpopular Republican governors survived. This was ugly.
