Migrants in Chicago are on edge as evictions from temporary shelters loom: More than 13,000 people are under pressure to find homes and work before they are mass-evicted from city-operated shelters.

… in interviews last week with more than a dozen migrants, many who spoke to NBC News expressed fear that they won’t make that deadline, especially because it is nearly impossible for the newest arrivals to get rental assistance and quick access to work permits. Advocates say it’s unlikely that everyone will be able to successfully transition out of the shelters and instead will need to reapply for access to another shelter. They fear some will end up homeless.

“I can’t even sleep. I’m staying up all night thinking,” Cinfuentes said. “It makes me sick.”

It is a fucking disgrace that the purportedly richest country in the world sees these kinds of headlines daily. What. The. Fuck.

Not to mention that we have the highest percentage of mass killings compared to any other country. Despite spending more on defense funding than any other country in the world by a very very large margin. When you vote, do you actually look at, in depth, who you are voting for?

Oh, I forgot. We also have the highest percentage of incarceration.

I dare you to look at the education rates though. You will be depressed.

We need to make America Great, again. By spending more on education, far less on so-called defense, and actually electing leaders who give a shit about us. In case you think I am endorsing Trump, you’re wrong

I apologize. I’m on a bit of a tear. I used to be very proud to be an American, and now I am only pissed off.
