This article promotes social capital in the sense that it bonds political parties together againts a common goal. In a way it still hinders social capital between people causing conflict and opposing ideas.
This article is a good example of social capital because it promotes awareness to crimes in the hispanic community and what how the community is trying to deal wiwth it in Mexico as well as the U.S. It also shows social capital in the fact that the communities are involved and aware of the crime rate and the decline of crime that is in the heavily immigrant populated cities, and communities.
After reading this article it is very to see that it is written around race/ ehnicity and geagraphy fault lines. The hispanic/latino population of New Haven, CT are being targeted, harrased, fasley arrested, beaten and raided, just because they are Latino. It also focuses the story that it is taking place in New Haven, although there is this type of racial profiling going on all over the U.S. The article is focused on the city of New Haven, CT. This article also demonstrates the cultural value of individualism because it was written to bring awarem=ness to the corruption of the New Haven police.
This article shows the race/ethinicity and class fault lines. It feels as if they speak towards immigrants as if they are a race within themselves. And this article compares immigrants to criminals, in the sense that they are of a lower class. i see a bit of an ethnocentric side to it, for the simpple cause that they use the term "anchor babies" making it seem that immigrants are leaving their home country to have children in the U.S in hopes of gaining citizenshit, although some of these facts may be true, this is looked through an American lens point of view, and the immigrants are beng judged on how they live up to American standards.
This opinion peice uses a personal responsibility frame. Mirkinson uses the information in Isabel Macdonald's peice to give the reader a sense that he thinks that what Dobbs did was wrong.

Also this article has a personal frame because it directly uses the argument between two people, Dobbs and Macdonald.
This article mainly uses a legality frame. It focuses on the laws surrounding documents for hired workers in big companies. It gives you the story of how these companies are not following rules and the consequenses they recieve due to hiring workers and not following up with their documentation. This relates to society today because immigration is a big government issue, and with name brand companies hiring what could possibly be "undocumented" workers, it contradicts what the U.S government is trying to enforce.
A. I do think that the article explained the complexities of the issue because it gave the reader information of how the economic crisis of this country is falling and how the census is failing acknowledge the face that the poverty levels in the U.S are actually far worse than led to believe.
B. Yes, the article did offer an in-depth view on the issue because it offered both sides of the story, with given examples on how the counting system in the census may be flawed and be giving miscalculated information about the poverty levels in the United States.
C. Overall the article did answer my questions that I had for the issue. It told me why the numbers the census has been giving us for the poverty percentage can be wrong and ... More »
A. I do not think that this article explained all the complexities to the issue because it still left me with questions of how the “Dream-Act” would work, what the problems the republicans see with this act, and why they do not want to let it pass.
B. For the most part it basically stated that the republicans are going to do everything in their power to stop any plan for amnesty created by the democrats. I do not feel like it went very much into depth because the article did not explain the concepts of the act in the first place.
C. The article actually raised more questions than it answered for me, it could be due to the fact that I did not know much about the issue in the first place, and the bit of information they gave ... More »
