Bad, Disney, and Family: "You Trumpsters better pray that liberals never gain control of the WH again because we are going to pay you back so fucking hard for all of this shit. Planned Parenthoods on every damn corner. We're going to repaint Air Force One, pussy hat pink and fly it over your beloved Bible Belt 6 days a week, tossing birth control pills, condoms & atheist literature from the cockpit. We're going to tax your mega churches so bad Joel Olsteen will need to get a job at Chik Fil A to pay his light bill. Speaking of Chik Fil A, we're buying all those and giving them to any LGBTQ person your sick cult leaders tortured with conversion therapy. Have fun with the new menu you bigoted fucks. Try the McPence. It's a boiled unseasoned chicken breast that you have to eat in the closet with your mother. We're going to gather up ALL of your guns, melt them down and turn them into a gargantuan metal mountain emblazoned with the face of Hillary Clinton. ALL parks will be renamed Rosa Parks asap. We're replacing Confederate statues with BLM Leaders & Mexican immigrants. Every single public school will be renamed after a child that was kidnapped by this regime. And after we fumigate the WH, we're repainting the whole thing rainbow. Fox News will be taken over and turned into a family refugee shelter. We're turning Hannity's office into a giant unisex bathroom with changing tables & free tampons. And every single time a Trumpster complains about any of the changes, we're adding an openly gay character to a Disney movie." This will make your day...
Children, College, and Drinking: This 17-Year-Old Mexican-American Student Was Accepted to 18 Prestigious Universities Source: Remezcla Courtesy of Children's Defense Fund José Alberto Aceves Salvador, with his mother and father. Courtesy of the Aceves family MUSTREAD When next fall rolls around, José Alberto Aceves Salvador will begin his undergraduate career. But whether that’s as a student at Harvard, Cornell, Princeton, Yale, MIT, UC Berkeley, UCLA, or any of the other 11 schools that accepted him remains unknown. José – the son of two Mexican immigrants – will graduate as the valedictorian of his class at New Open World Academy in Los Angeles. He also has a pretty impressive résumé. Even then, he felt surprised that so many schools accepted him. “When I applied to all these universities, I felt overwhelmed,” he told La Opinión. “I thought I didn’t stand a chance, and that they wouldn’t accept me.” For the 17-year-old student, getting to this moment hasn’t been devoid of obstacles. His parents, who arrived in the country in their 20s, have always worked very hard to provide for their three children. But they’ve struggled financially at times. José’s father, Ricardo, juggled multiple jobs. To cope with the stress, Ricardo turned to alcohol. “The worst part of my drinking is that I’ve left good jobs where they’ve paid well, but I quit because of my addiction,” Ricardo said. The family stayed afloat during those tough times because of José’ mother, Isabel, who works at a hospital. The family of five lives in Koreatown in a one-bedroom apartment. José jokes that he “learned to study with noise.” Over the course of his life, he’s also learned how to manage a busy schedule. Every day, he wakes up between 5 and 5:30 a.m. so that he can arrive at water polo practice by 6 a.m., which runs for an hour and a half. He then begins school at 8 a.m. After school, he participates in a mentor program. In a December 2016 video announcing him as one of the recipients of the California Beat the Odds Scholarship, José’s classmates thanked him for selflessly devoting his time to helping them with chemistry, pre-calculus, and even with college applications. immigration education

Memes, Oscars, and Shade: How 4 Undocumented, Mexican Immigrant High School Students & Their cheap Robot Beat MIT Source: WIRED (2004) THE TEAM: Carl Hayden Community High School Falcon Robotics Club @undocumedia 🇲🇽🇺🇸🙌✨👏To the date - one of our favorite stories flashback - & they named their robot "Stinky" "While other teams machined and welded metal frames, the guys broke out the rubber glue and began assembling the PVC pipe. They did the whole thing in one night, got high on the pungent fumes, and dubbed their new creation Stinky. Lorenzo painted it garish shades of blue, red, and yellow to designate the functionality of specific pipes. Every inch of PVC had a clear purpose. It was the type of machine only an engineer would describe as beautiful. Carl Hayden Community High School doesn’t have a swimming pool, so one weekend in May, after about six weeks of work in the classroom, the team took Stinky to a scuba training pool in downtown Phoenix for its baptism. Luis hefted the machine up and gently placed it in the water. They powered it up. Cristian had hacked together off-the-shelf joysticks, a motherboard, motors, and an array of onboard finger-sized video cameras, which now sent flickering images to black-and-white monitors on a folding picnic table. Using five small electric trolling motors, the robot could spin and tilt in any direction. To move smoothly, two drivers had to coordinate their commands. The first thing they did was smash the robot into a wall. “This is good, this is good,” Oscar kept repeating, buying himself a few seconds to come up with a positive spin. “Did you see how hard it hit the wall? This thing’s got power. Once we figure out how to drive it, we’ll be the fastest team there.” By early June, as the contest neared, the team had the hang of it. Stinky now buzzed through the water, dodging all obstacles. The drivers, Cristian and Oscar, could make the bot hover, spin in place, and angle up or down. They could send enough power to Stinky‘s small engines to pull Luis around the pool. They felt like they had a good shot at not placing last. ... “And the overall winner for the Marine Technology ROV championship,” Merrill continued, looking up at the crowd, “goes to Carl Hayden High School of Phoenix, Arizona!” (2004) Picture by @liviacoronabenjamin immigration undocumented Mexico Mexican robotics arizona SpareParts MIT HereToStay
