Trump Administration Reverses New Policy
Last week, USCIS announced that their deferred action program for immigrants facing undue hardship as a result of severe medical problems would end. The old policy allowed a small number of illegal residents to remain on US soil if they were receiving medical care or taking part in medical studies for extreme health problems.
Many people were upset about the abrupt end to this program. Over 100 Democratic lawmakers sent a letter to USCIS voicing their displeasure with the shift, prompting the Trump Administration to extend an olive branch and intervene.

While the policy isn’t being fully reinitiated, USCIS will honor applications for deferment already submitted. All new applications will be denied.
NJ Labor Day Parade Canceled Due to Explosive Devices
South Plainfield, NJ, was forced to cancel its annual Labor Day parade last week after officers were alerted to a suspicious package containing an unspecified “destructive device.” The Sea Bright Police Department (SBPD) was able to secure and deconstruct the package, where they immediately identified links to a local man by the name of Thomas Kaiser.
Officers also found a variety of other potentially dangerous devices near the man’s home, which is located a short distance away from the parade’s starting point. Kaiser was arrested and charged with two counts of Possession of a Destructive Device as a result of the findings.
Both the Governor and his wife planned to participate in the Sept 1 parade. However, there is no evidence to prove Kaiser was targeting them or even what the man’s motive really was.
Kansas University vs Chick-fil-A
A new Chick-fil-A at the University of Kansas has Left-leaning Americans triggered.
Faculty from the school’s Sexuality & Gender Diversity Council sent a letter to KU Chancellor Doug Girod expressing their concern that the popular food chain could be harmful to the mental health of KU’s LGBTQ students.
The Sexuality and Gender Diversity Faculty Staff Council released a statement Monday morning denouncing the University of Kansas’ recent moves to “deepen its relationship with Chick-fil-A.”https://t.co/9XSMxBQW1F

“In the Spring, we spoke out to denounce the decision to relocate the business, which has a history of supporting organizations that are hostile to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people, families and communities,” the letter reads.
Chick-fil-A isn’t new to the KU campus, in fact, it has been in operation for 15 years. The location was moved to a more popular location this summer to pare back on the estimated $2.6 million in upgrades required by the school’s contract with the restaurant.
These professors aren’t doing anything to protect any of the students at KU. In fact, they are harming them more than any restaurant ever could.
What will these students do if they have to drive past a Chick-fil-A one day? Or, heaven forbid, they have a boss that asks them to pick up lunch at the closest location?
