because he was black. Similar occasions have occurred previously, notably in 2005, when supreme court allowed a man to be sentenced to death even though one of the jury members was recorded saying that although he was unaware if the person committed the crime, it is something the “nigger deserved”. The article mentions the injustice of death penalty and how the act of death penalty is popular in areas where lynching had previously occurred. The acts of mob lynching were replaced by death penalties that were legally justified. The article mentions how Keith Tharpe suffers from an intellectual disability and possessed a low IQ of 97, and still is under the threat of being sentenced to death just because the jury member was racist and wants the person to be dead just because of his race. The article promotes the liberal view that a man who is less intellectually superior should be granted protection by the supreme court from racist agenda.

Immigration Immigration (liberal) The editorial begins with giving an anecdote of a married couple, Alejandro and Maria, being separated from one another, one of the many cases of deportation that are a consequence of President Trump’s policies on immigration. One of Donald Trump’s methods to reduce crime rate was to arrest and deport undocumented immigrants from the united states, even those who had no previous criminal records. He has witnessed to have made a generalization that the illegal aliens bring in crime, such as illegal guns and drug trafficking, along with them and hence affect the condition of the country. According to him, a method to reduce crime rate was to deport unregistered immigrants who illegally crossed the border. Donald Trump’s views align with the conservative view which is to Support legal immigration and prohibit illegal immigration. Those who enter the united states undocumented are not to be granted equal rights as those who entered legally. They are to be refused amnesty, be arrested and deported. They are not to be granted the same health and educational benefits that are granted to an American citizen. The government should also put in intense effort to secure the

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
