Those of us appalled at the Trump admin’s immigration policies expected Biden and his team to eradicate all the anti-immigrant, anti-humane, anti-just immigration practices in one fell swoop. We were naive. From still seizing border land that has been in families for generations, dropping off migrants in obscure rural border towns and immigrant parents searching for their children in US custody, policies haven’t changed quick enough. We ask, will they?; Scientists are on the path of unlocking genetic secrets using an up-and-coming tool; Extreme weather is no longer a “once-in-a-lifetime” occurrence. Each year brings worsening weather events than the year before but some towns are tackling the turn of Mother Nature with innovative ideas that are turning adversity into an advantage.
