Editorials

From the editorial: Republicans have made their point. They got the attention they wanted. Now it’s time to engage Democrats to solve the problem. ... And Democrats, you can cover your eyes and pretend the border isn’t a problem. Texans don’t have that luxury, and they will show it at the polls.
From the editorial: Donald Trump’s courtroom comeuppance ultimately would serve Americans of all political stripes because it would affirm a concept that badly needs affirmation: That no person is above the law.
From the editorial: Just because the nation has numbed itself to the pernicious and persistent effects of this virus doesn’t mean it no longer qualifies as a pandemic. And the country is heading into another likely winter surge. The president could do all Americans a favor by maintaining a cautious tone and strongly emphasizing the importance of vaccinations and boosters — at least helping ensure that infections yield the mildest symptoms possible.
From the editorial: These busing immigrant ploys of Abbott and DeSantis ploys could be dismissed as little more than cynical campaign gestures — if not for the serious history of racism at their roots.

Latest Headlines
From the editorial: As for the feds, their inaction or outright incompetence is what facilitates Abbott’s actions. Instead of standing by and letting this play out, the administration should recommit to helping place and take asylum seekers where there’s capacity across America. We can be both more humane and more efficient.
From the editorial: Every immigrant in Florida should remember the pain of their first days in America. How heartbreaking it would have been to be used as a pawn by such a heartless politician as Gov. DeSantis.
From the editorial: Housing and supporting the influx of migrants across our borders should be another “fair share” situation. ... Martha’s Vineyard rose to the occasion — who will follow?
From the editorial: In contrast, federal judges receive lifetime tenure, specifically to shield them from public pressure. Their job is to abide by the U.S. Constitution and laws passed by Congress, not impose their personal opinions. That’s the “rule of law.”
From the editorial: The right to marry whom you love should not be subject to the whims of an out-of-step conservative court or be left to a patchwork of state regulations. Congress must make the Respect for Marriage Act the law of the land.
From the editorial: Studies indicate nicotine is as addictive as cocaine or heroin, which makes it doubly appalling that any company would target their products at kids.

From the editorial: Don’t expect a legislative fix anytime soon
From the editorial: "The fallout from Google's and Facebook's practices on local newsrooms is disturbing to anyone who values reliable information."
From the editorial: His new student loan policy is a win not just for the president, who has been on somewhat of a roll recently. Nor is it solely a win for current borrowers. The spiraling cost of a college education and the fundamental unfairness of being charged compound interest by lenders has derailed the college aspirations of too many young people and saddled 81% of adults with so much debt that they have been forced to delay key milestones like getting married, having children, saving for retirement, or buying a home.
