SAN ANTONIO — For years Riaz Sardar Khil, a soldier with the Afghan army, assisted U.S. troops during their mission overseas. He was rewarded with an immigration visa to start a new life in America. Three years ago, Sardar, his wife and a newborn daughter resettled in a sprawling apartment complex in a working-class neighborhood in San Antonio. The Sardars were reminded of the dangers they left behind during a visit back home last summer that coincided with the chaotic exit of U.S. armed forces. Sardar’s wife, Zarmeena Sardar Khil, and daughter, Lina, found themselves feet away from a suicide bomber who killed 13 U.S. soldiers and hundreds of Afghans.

Y los mandatarios republicanos de Florida y Texas podrían apenas estar empezando. Los gobernadores Ron DeSantis, de Florida, y Greg Abbott, de Texas, insisten en que esas medidas drásticas son necesarias para exponer la verdadera crisis en la frontera entre Estados Unidos y México, por donde miles de migrantes ingresan a diario de manera ilegal en suelo estadounidense. Pero cuando faltan algunas semanas para sus reñidas reelecciones, amigos y enemigos por igual han reconocido que esas tácticas radicales han funcionado para cambiar el énfasis de las elecciones intermedias de noviembre, al menos temporalmente, alejándolo del derecho al aborto y acercándolo a un tema más favorable a los republicanos. DeSantis criticó el martes la inacción del presidente Biden … [Read more...] about Táctica republicana con migrantes trastoca debate electoral
