USF Professor and Director of Immigration Bill Ong Hing on ICE's endorsement of Trump for President

USF Professor and Director of Immigration Bill Ong Hing on ICE's endorsement of Trump for President | USF in the News | Scoop.it

"The union that represents immigration officers revealed its true colors this week by endorsing the presidential candidate who has built his campaign on demonizing Mexican immigrants.

“I was just endorsed by ICE. They’ve never endorsed anybody before on immigration,” Donald Trump boasted during Monday night’s presidential debate."

 

...

 

“This is totally inappropriate for them to be acting in the political domain because they are government employees” said Bill Ong Hing, a professor at the University of San Francisco School of Law. “It signifies bias against groups like Mexicans, who are the most significant number of undocumented immigrants.”

Hing said the endorsement could even lead to legal accusations of racial profiling. And that’s not insignificant considering that Mexican nationals topped the list of 235,000 immigrants that ICE deported last year, according to ICE data."

Professor Ken Goldstein on premature projections of Presidential election results

Professor Ken Goldstein on premature projections of Presidential election results | USF in the News | Scoop.it

“A group of data scientists, journalists and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs is seeking to upend that reporting tradition, providing detailed projections of who is winning at any given time on Election Day in key swing states, and updating the information in real time from dawn to dusk.”

“The networks actually do this quarantine room because they do not want this info to leak out,” said Ken Goldstein, a professor of politics at the University of San Francisco and a member of ABC’s decision desk. “That’s to their credit.”

USF Provost and VP of Academic Affairs Donald Heller on nominee for Secretary of Education Betsey DeVos

USF Provost and VP of Academic Affairs Donald Heller on nominee for Secretary of Education Betsey DeVos | USF in the News | Scoop.it

"President-elect Donald J. Trump last week announced one of his first cabinet nominees, naming Betsy DeVos, a Michigan billionaire, as his nominee for secretary of education. If confirmed by the Senate, DeVos would bring to Washington a well-defined agenda in the K-12 education arena. What she would bring to higher-education policy is less clear, but we can find clues in her free-market outlook."

 

...

 

"Former governors who have led the Education Department, like Richard Riley and Lamar Alexander, had track records in all aspects of education. Newcomers to policy making, like DeVos, are harder to predict, but extrapolating from her advocacy work we can make some good guesses."
