When considering the growing numbers of immigrants coming into the United States and the mass rates of detentions and deportations, many fail to acknowledge the impact these immigration procedures cause on the minors in these families. There must be modifications in regards to the immigration enforcement policies, which include the raids, as well as detention and deportation processes to help diminish the harsh impacts that overwhelm these children. The continued and growing rates of split families caused by immigration policies reflect substantial psychological, physical, social and economic effects that transpire on these children. As a nation, the welfare of the children involved in these cases should be of our priority, because let us not forget that they are tomorrow’s people and the future of our country. Since the commencement of this country, efforts to remove criminals and protect the country’s safety have been of great importance. However, since the overwhelming events that impacted the safety of our country on September 11, 2001, the border’s protection and deportation practices have been stronger than in previous years. Nearly 400,000 deportations took place in each year of 2010 and 2011, which consists of the highest number of deportation cases in the past decades. The re-election of President Obama had promised modifications to the immigration policies that had instilled hope in undocumented people. In 2012, he announced some changes that impacted undocumented students who were brought to this country illegally as children under the age of sixteen. We had yet, to see his promise for an immigration reform take into place. However, on November 20, 2014 he announced his executive action to provide temporary stay to undocumented people who have been living in the country for more than five years, have children that are American citizens or permanent residents, apply and pass a background check, as well as are willing to contribute to the country’s economy. He promises to “keep focusing deportation on actual threats to our security. Felons, not families. Criminals, not children.” Although, I am concerned about the “temporary” grant of stay, however I am glad that there is a change for the positive in the status of undocumented people and this will help with the major problem and consequences that derive from the splitting of families. As we will see in this essay, the effects on families and primarily on the children of deported parents are detrimental. ((What is the prosecutional discretion? ALTHOUGH THERE HAVE BEEN PROTESTS AND BILLS PASSED TO ONLY DEPORT CRIMINALS- MORE THAN # HAVE BEEN DEPORTED WITH NO CRIMINAL ACTS)) In researching the effects of detention and deportation practices on children, I found the group Human Impact Partners who researched the overall health effects that impact families of these detained and deported parents. As they emphasized, “Extensive research recognizes that health is a product of social, environmental and economic conditions that create opportunities for individuals, families and communities to lead healthy lives” therefore we can very well assimilate that when a parent is deported these factors are undobtedly bound to change; leaving the family to suffer the absence of the parent and causing major differences in the children’s social, environmental and economic status. According to their report, How Family-Focused Immigration Reform Will Mean Better Health for Children and Families, “nationwide, an estimated 4.5 million children who are U.S. citizens by birth live in families where one or more of their parents are undocumented.” The children of undocumented parents live with the constant fear that their family might be split or that they might be put into the foster system; this fear essentially provokes additional complications. Furthermore, psychological problems such as behavioral issues, fear, anxiety...

...meetings with Atletico this season. The Blaugrana won the Supercopa of Spain after two draws (1-1 and 0-0 in the Calderon at the Camp Nou). The only goal was scored by Neymar. In the match of the first round of the League, the club added a point with a 0-0 mattress ground. And in the Champions League, Tata Martino's team was eliminated in the quarterfinals after a 1-1 Camp Nou (Barca goal was scored, again, Neymar) and 1-0 from the Calderon.
Getting the first win in six games (no Neymar, the only Blaugrana striker, injured) is the final challenge of this generation of players that deserve close its cycle with another title. A league title, if Atletico win on Saturday, it will conquer and enjoy deserved.
Andres Iniesta starred a long press conference in which he tried to convey an optimistic message facing the last league match and tried to focus on the work of the staff and their options.
"Every game is different and this also for the final importance acquired; hopefully overcome while Atletico and we can get this league." He praised the work done by the Cholo and his players. "I take my hat off for what he has done Atletico, but we also will deserve if I get."

Essay #1 - Part Two
In my creative piece, I used Lassel’s technique of depicting photographic moments to convey what home means to me. Just the topic of the southern lifestyles comes as a sensitive yet powerful subject for me. In my essay I decided to thoroughly develop strong mental pictures of the place I was raised and explain what it is that makes that friendly community of Lake Travis, Texas so special to me. Pinpointing the things that jog my memory of what it’s like to be from the welcoming town of LT in Austin, Texas. My main goal of the creative piece I wrote was to make everyone from different origins and hometowns, think about where they’re from and discern what having that place to call home means to them as I so passionately specify what it means to me.
When reading my paper aloud in my head, precise pictures of the rolling hills covered in deep greens, the still lake water that breaks as the boat cruises along and the over the top weird souls that roam 6th street keeping Austin’s reputation play in my mind form. Relating to the statement that I mentioned in my creative piece, “Where everyone embraces the fact that were a weird city filled with weird people who thoroughly enjoy doing weird things.” To people who aren’t from Austin, the details that perfectly describe the memorable parts of the weird city are all jumbled together on a sheet of paper....

Top Song: thefinal
Channel 5 Tuesday 8 p.m.
Last night’s highlight was the final of Top Song. This week the final three contestants had to sing a disco song and a slow ballad.
Lil was very nervous and she forgot the words. But Lil is a determined woman and she started the song again. The judges loved it and said very positive things.
Simon was the next contestant. Simon was working as a teacher when he saw the first series of Top Song. He was in the bottom three last week, but the viewers voted for him. Last night he didn’t sing very well.
The final contestant was Erika. Erika complained last week because she thought the judges were really strict. She was feeling a bit lonely and wanted to visit her family, but the judges didn’t allow her to go. Her disco song was OK, but her slow ballad was fantastic.
Who won? Watch it online and find out!

...picture would soon become boring if I had no background and had the same type of coloring. Also, in this sketch, I only had one material, which may have made the final result boring had I left it like this.
3. Final Sketch:
After we completed our experiments with materials, I came up with a more developed concept and sketch. I used the same basic concept, but I added a city on the bank. I also put pieces that I thought described my life in the river this time. I decided to try and use powder paste for the river, and gouache for the background. This was my final sketch before creating the piece, but it still changed while I was creating it.
4. Mid-completion photo:
I decided to use magazine cut-outs for the city instead of drawing it. I also decided to do this for the background so that it didn’t look so pastely. It was after this stage that Mr. Noguera suggested that the river looked a little bit out of place compared to the sharpness of the photographs. I agreed with this, but I wasn’t quite sure how to change it. He thought that maybe I could use paint and apply it with a painting knife instead of a brush to give it more texture. Also, I used paint gel to give it a shinier look. Because I did this, the river fit into the overall piece slightly better.
5. Final Piece:
