“Every issue has its two aspects: positive and negative”. On a blog called, “Will Texas States Follow Arizona’s lead on Immigration?” Sohil wrote about immigration is something that need to accept it. MY colleague saying, “It would also require police officers to question a person about his or her immigration status if there is "reasonable suspicion" that person may be illegally in the country” is true. The illegal immigration problem is one of the most challenging issues in US. He also said that illegal immigrants are hurting US citizens in many ways. They are enjoying more facilities than a citizen does. We can see in our real life that lots of illegal immigrants with food stamp facilities, Medicare facilities, and many more without paying any tax. The federal government should have done all these before the problems are seen but still they are not showing attention. I disagree with my other colleague Tina that building the wall can work out but, I think it will be worthless to do so. How many places can government build the wall? Who are the one who build wall? Besides that, government should think that does it go a work if we build the wall. Illegal immigrants don’t even have the driving license and if they get a wreck the other people have to suffer. The federal government is not showing interest in the problem that’s why the state has stepped up to find out the solution as, Sohil said.

“Unnecessary expenses create dawdling development”. Miller’s view in this article “Electronic texts might not benefits students education” is true and practical. State’s public schools are planning to replace printed textbooks with electronic ones. Although some states leaders prefer moving in this direction, “miller”, the Texas state board of education member for district 12, in Dallas urge that, it not be a top-down approach or a cost-shifting strategy for the state. He says education should lead any such transition, not the state. “Technology creates problems”, when they change printed text books with electronic ones there gone a be lots of problems for setting up the devices, training teachers, total cost of buying the devices, making sure they work for blind students, maintaining, insuring and protecting them from damage and providing uninterrupted internet connectivity with internet filters. These are all new costs that must be addressed at a time when school districts are facing financial crises and laying off teachers. There should be proper agreement among state, district and schools. For the long term it might have more advantages but looking at present economic condition, it sounds incompatible.
Because of this new legislation, child might not have material to bring home. The equipment is simply the means to access the content, and we must always remember that it is the content on the devices that is most crucial to the students. Printed books are possible to carry anywhere and can have a short look even if we are at work but the electronic devices are impossible to do. Miller says, “The state Board of Education certifies the accuracy and alignment of this content to the curriculum. I think this idea will best to ensure the students a quality education. The thing student expect from school is education. This idea will be worthy if the states public schools have sufficient funds, but if they dont have enough funds to complete the programe then it will be big threaten to the management group. In other side, students will not be benefited by this program as they used to be with printed text books.

Providing public safety and security is the main job of police department so I think its good idea to install security cameras in highly crime area. We can see most of the private owner install security cameras for their safety and security. People get scare to create crime in that area where there are security cameras. That’s why ‘safety’ is more important than ‘privacy’.
I have the same opinion as she got about installing security cameras in highly crime area around Austin downtown. She says “public safety should be their (police department) number one concern, that’s the entire reason they was founded was to protect and serve” so, police department have full right to take any action for public security. I think my colleague did an excellent job with this article post. She got all the precise and appealing across and I agree all the way with my colleague.

When three people associated with US consulate in Juarez were killed, US government was very upset with Mexico. These kinds of violence against US interest are regarded as an act of war. Besides that, every day lots of illegal Mexican who enters US, supplies drugs, cocoon and other illegal drugs. Mexican government is not showing interest to stop these kinds of illegal activities, instead they encourage them because them good money from these kinds of activities. Attract have become common place at Mexico because more than 2600 people slaying in Juarez in 2009, 16000 car theft, and 19000 carjacking. Criminals have given hard time to all the US citizens travelling in their vehicles in border areas. I think it will be the good idea if US government apply strong border patriots in the border area and urge student to void the spring break trip to the Mexico border cities until Mexican government provide peace and security to travelers.

“Every problem has its solution” so, there is no way to delay on the problem. In my opinion, cause of an accident is lack of show out by the city. If city shows this laziness then there are high chances of having big accident because the driver coming from the corner to turn on woodland cannot get the traction. City and watershed department should be responsible for any kind of accident occur there. Writer of this article “Ricardo Gandara” has clearly mentioned about this issue. “If there will not be control on the flow of water, then on couple days there will be traffic hazards” says Gandara. Gandara has clearly described about cause and effect giving threatens to the government. I am in favor of Gandara because he is adding public voice to the article describing about the accident, its causes and future affects. I think it would be better if city of Austin take this issue seriously and find some clue to be safe from future affect.
