Sexual Prey in the Saudi Jungle
He was an officer in the Saudi Royal Navy assigned to the strategic Saudi base of Jubail in the Persian Gulf. She was a single mom from Mindanao, in the Philippines, who saw, like so many others, employment in Saudi Arabia as a route out of poverty. When he picked her up at the Dammam International Airport in June, little did she know she was entering, not a brighter chapter of her life but a chamber of horrors from which she would be liberated only after six long months.

Zenger’s vs. Fox on “Undocumented” vs. “Illegal” Immigrants
Does it look to you like he’s wearing a dress? That’s just one of the loonier accusations leveled against Zenger’s Newsmagazine associate editor Leo E. Laurence, J.D., shown being made up for one of his two recent appearances on Fox News. He was invited on “Fox and Friends” and “The O’Reilly Factor” to discuss his campaign to get the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) to recommend that immigrants in the U.S. without official papers be referred to as “undocumented” rather than “illegal.” What he got was a firestorm of bigoted, prejudiced and frequently ad hominem attacks from members of Fox’s core Right-wing audience; “idiot” was actually one of the less mean things he was called in the hundreds of e-mails that flooded in to his accounts after the shows.

text The Migrant Condition Walden Bello 2010-10-23 12:32 AM
When I was recently named chairman of the Committee on Overseas Workers’ Affairs of the House of Representatives of the Philippines, I was approached by members of the press for my views on migrant labor. I remembered a speech I delivered last year at the Global Forum for Migration and Development in Athens, Greece. The thrust of the speech was that migrants’ rights have to be addressed on two fronts: ending the neoliberal policies that are responsible for creating poverty in their home countries, thus forcing them to emigrate, and demanding that they are given full rights in their host countries.

This must be a mistake!!! The Republic endorses Libertarian Andrea Garcia over racist, police state thug Russell Pearce in the Mesa Senate race!!!! You know Russell Pearce, he is the police state tyrant that created Arizona's racist SB 1070 law. Russell Pearce is also an ex-cop who thinks marijuana smokers should be executed, while Andrea wants to legalize drugs. Hey Andrea, have you been sneaking around doing something we don't know about???? On the other hand sometimes the Republic makes a mistake and actually gets it right. (text/html + 3 comments)
