Do you think we should build a wall on the Mexican border: Why or why not: Explain..

Wall on the Mexican border

****  After reading the information presented on the website, I do not believe the wall should be built. First of all, it is estimated to cost over $25Billion. Mexico has said in the past that they will NOT pay for it. If they did the original plan of putting a tariff of 20% on all imports from Mexico, yeah it could pay for the wall, but it would most likely hurt our ties with Mexico. The wall will also hurt the ecosystem. It will hinder some endangered animals ability to mate.

******

The topic of immigration is a very sensitive topic. I myself I’m an immigrant, therefore I will try to be as unbiased as possible. When it comes to the topic of President Trump building the wall on the Mexican border; I believe that the wall should not be built. Reason being: the cons in building the wall, such as price outweighs the pros. While there might be pros, but we can all agree that the main reason for the wall being built is for immigration purposes.

This costly wall which is estimated to be about 10 billion dollars or more is an investment that needs to be weighed on if the cost will outweigh the benefits or vice versa. While a wall itself, I believe will not deter illegal entry from the border; we must ask ourselves, what is its purpose. Along with purpose is motive. What is the president’s motive in building this wall? Is this wall a product of tightening our border; or merely grounds of racial biases. Sadly, I’m driven to believe the latter. It can be argued that our President, Mr. Trumps motives are racially and discriminatory driven.

Do you think we should build a wall on the Mexican border: Why or why not: Explain.

Supreme Court Ruling Makes Same-Sex Marriage a Right Nationwide

Supreme Court Ruling Makes Same-Sex Marriage a Right Nationwide.

Supreme Court Ruling Makes Same-Sex Marriage

WASHINGTON — In a long-sought victory for the gay rights movement, the Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote on Friday that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.

“No longer may this liberty be denied,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the historic decision. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”

Marriage is a “keystone of our social order,” Justice Kennedy said, adding that the plaintiffs in the case were seeking “equal dignity in the eyes of the law.”

The decision, which was the culmination of decades of litigation and activism, set off jubilation and tearful embraces across the country, the first same-sex marriages in several states, and resistance — or at least stalling — in others. It came against the backdrop of fast-moving changes in public opinion, with polls indicating that most Americans now approve of the unions.

The court’s four more liberal justices joined Justice Kennedy’s majority opinion. Each member of the court’s conservative wing filed a separate dissent, in tones ranging from resigned dismay to bitter scorn.

In dissent, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said the Constitution had nothing to say on the subject of same-sex marriage.

“If you are among the many Americans — of whatever sexual orientation — who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today’s decision,” Chief Justice Roberts wrote. “Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal. Celebrate the opportunity for a new expression of commitment to a partner. Celebrate the availability of new benefits. But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.”

In a second dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia mocked the soaring language of Justice Kennedy, who has become the nation’s most important judicial champion of gay rights.

“The opinion is couched in a style that is as pretentious as its content is egotistic,” Justice Scalia wrote of his colleague’s work. “Of course the opinion’s showy profundities are often profoundly incoherent.”

As Justice Kennedy finished announcing his opinion from the bench on Friday, several lawyers seated in the bar section of the court’s gallery wiped away tears, while others grinned and exchanged embraces.

Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired in 2010, was on hand for the decision, and many of the justices’ clerks took seats in the chamber, which was nearly full as the ruling was announced. The decision made same-sex marriage a reality in the 13 states that had continued to ban it.

How a Love Story Triumphed in Court

John Arthur died in 2013, but the legacy of his marriage to Jim Obergefell, center, is at the center of the Supreme Court same-sex marriage case.

Outside the Supreme Court, the police allowed hundreds of people waving rainbow flags and holding signs to advance onto the court plaza as those present for the decision streamed down the steps. “Love has won,” the crowd chanted as courtroom witnesses threw up their arms in victory.

In remarks in the Rose Garden, President Obama welcomed the decision, saying it “affirms what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts.”

“Today,” he said, “we can say, in no uncertain terms, that we have made our union a little more perfect.”

Justice Kennedy was the author of all three of the Supreme Court’s previous gay rights landmarks. The latest decision came exactly two years after his majority opinion in United States v. Windsor, which struck down a federal law denying benefits to married same-sex couples, and exactly 12 years after his majority opinion in Lawrence v. Texas, which struck down laws making gay sex a crime.

In all of those decisions, Justice Kennedy embraced a vision of a living Constitution, one that evolves with societal changes.

“The nature of injustice is that we may not always see it in our own times,” he wrote on Friday. “The generations that wrote and ratified the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment did not presume to know the extent of freedom in all of its dimensions, and so they entrusted to future generations a charter protecting the right of all persons to enjoy liberty as we learn its meaning.”

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen G. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan joined the majority opinion.

In dissent, Chief Justice Roberts said the majority opinion was “an act of will, not legal judgment.”

“The court invalidates the marriage laws of more than half the states and orders the transformation of a social institution that has formed the basis of human society for millennia, for the Kalahari Bushmen and the Han Chinese, the Carthaginians and the Aztecs,” he wrote. “Just who do we think we are?”

The court decided in Obergefell v. Hodges and three related cases that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.

• Same-sex couples can marry in three dozen states, but federal appeals courts have been divided over whether states must allow same-sex couples to marry and recognize such marriages performed elsewhere.

The majority and dissenting opinions took differing views about whether the decision would harm religious liberty. Justice Kennedy said the First Amendment “ensures that religious organizations and persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths.” He said both sides should engage in “an open and searching debate.”

Chief Justice Roberts responded that “people of faith can take no comfort in the treatment they receive from the majority today.”

Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., in his dissent, saw a broader threat from the majority opinion. “It will be used to vilify Americans who are unwilling to assent to the new orthodoxy,” Justice Alito wrote. “In the course of its opinion, the majority compares traditional marriage laws to laws that denied equal treatment for African-Americans and women. The implications of this analogy will be exploited by those who are determined to stamp out every vestige of dissent.”

Gay rights advocates had constructed a careful litigation and public relations strategy to build momentum and bring the issue to the Supreme Court when it appeared ready to rule in their favor. As in earlier civil rights cases, the court had responded cautiously and methodically, laying judicial groundwork for a transformative decision.

It waited for scores of lower courts to strike down bans on same-sex marriages before addressing the issue, and Justice Kennedy took the unusual step of listing those decisions in an appendix to his opinion.

Chief Justice Roberts said that only 11 states and the District of Columbia had embraced the right to same-sex marriage democratically, at voting booths and in legislatures. The rest of the 37 states that allow such unions did so because of court rulings. Gay rights advocates, the chief justice wrote, would have been better off with a victory achieved through the political process, particularly “when the winds of change were freshening at their backs.”

In his own dissent, Justice Scalia took a similar view, saying that the majority’s assertiveness represented a “threat to American democracy.”

But Justice Kennedy rejected that idea. “It is of no moment whether advocates of same-sex marriage now enjoy or lack momentum in the democratic process,” he wrote. “The issue before the court here is the legal question whether the Constitution protects the right of same-sex couples to marry.”

Later in the opinion, Justice Kennedy answered the question. “The Constitution,” he wrote, “grants them that right.”

Assignment Description

Animal Kingdom

Organisms are placed in taxonomic classifications based on differences and similarities of their traits. If you know what critical traits to look for, it is possible to separate any animal into a taxonomic category using a dichotomous key.

The common taxonomic categories are Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species (Specific Epithet). This assignment will explore the Phylum and Class categories.

The assignment document contains a table with nine images. The images are examples of nine different animal phyla: Porifera, Cnidaria, Nematoda, Arthropoda, Platyhelminthes, Annelida, Mollusca, Echinodermata, and Chordata.

  • In column 1, determine and list the correct Phylum name for each animal using the nine Phyla listed in your text.
  • In column 2, using the dichotomous key provided, determine the class for each animal. List all of the dichotomous key steps chosen when using the key to arrive at the class for each animal.
  • In column 3, the Classification Column, write the class name for each animal from the dichotomous key provided and your key steps.

First download U5 Animal Table 2018 document.

Use the dichotomous key to determine the class category, as shown for each animal (picture), and write the class names under the Classification Column on the table.

Consider the environment, potential threats, and changing climate, and then come up with an adaptation that would further benefit your angiosperm: Explain the potential concern your plant will face and how your new adaptation would benefit the plant

Consider the environment, potential threats, and changing climate, and then come up with an adaptation that would further benefit your angiosperm: Explain the potential concern your plant will face and how your new adaptation would benefit the plant.

Explain the potential concern your plant will face and how your new adaptation would benefit the plant

Angiosperms (flowering plants) are the largest Phylum in the plant kingdom Plantae. These plants have true roots, stems, leaves, and flowers. The roots grow into the soil to anchor the plant in place and take up water and nutrients. The leaves are above ground and act as the main organs for photosynthesis. Stems provide above-ground support for the plant and operate as conduits to move nutrients and water throughout the plant. Flowers contain the male and female reproductive organs of the plant.

Plants develop specialized roots, stems, leaves, and flowers to make them better adapted to their environment. With the anatomical features described above in mind, do some research to find an angiosperm that has modified leaves, stems, roots or flowers that are structurally different from the norm, do not function in the normal manner, or that function in an unusual manner. For example, a cactus has spines in place of leaves. The spines help reduce water loss that would occur through a large, expanded leaf in a desert environment, and they also help to prevent herbivory.

Recommended:

Complete all of the following steps:

  • Choose an angiosperm with at least 1 unusual organ, characteristic, modification, or adaptation.
  • Describe the anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) of the angiosperm you chose.
  • Explain the unusual characteristic(s) or modification(s) and how it differs from the standard root, stem, leaf, or flower.
  • What benefit does the modification provide to the plant you chose?
  • Research at least 1 other plant, or review posts made by your peers to devise a potentially advantageous new adaptation that would benefit your plant.
    • Consider the environment, potential threats, and changing climate, and then come up with an adaptation that would further benefit your angiosperm. Explain the potential concern your plant will face and how your new adaptation would benefit the plant. For example, gypsy moth is an introduced species spreading west and south from New England. The caterpillars can strip all of the leaves from a maple tree but do not eat the waxy leaves of holly that produce a toxin, theobromine. If maple trees had waxy, toxic leaves like the holly, then they would be protected from these pests.

Utilize at least 1 credible source to support the arguments presented in your post.

In your own words, post a response to the Discussion Board, and comment on at least 2 other postings. You will be graded on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.
