06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

A year later, whilst walking on the Coney Island shoreline, she was approached by amateur photographer Jerry Tibbs who suggested she try modelling and introduced her to the world of 'camera clubs'.

The most important thing happening in the student loan market is states stepping up to protect their borrowers. And the reason why is simple: they know that the student debt crisis isn't something in the horizon. It is here.
Data from @NewYorkFed demonstrate what states are facing. Here are a few quick stats:
In the last year, 46 states saw an increase in student loan debt, and 26 saw it jump over 5% in that time.

Can we have a serious discussion about something?
The main reason I am hustling hard - apart from wanting to fly Emirates Business Class - is because I really want to travel the world with the #Caramellos

Manie asked me something the other day

"Mom, are all people that clean houses and schools brown like you?"
I told him that people that clean houses and schools can be any colour. I told him that in #NewYork he'd see people of all colours cleaning houses and schools

I need to work hard and take my kids to New York

They need to see something else ... something other than South Africa

Immigration & Customs Enforcement—more commonly known as ICE, is a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the U.S. tasked to enforce the immigration laws of the United States & to investigate criminal and terrorist activity of foreign nationals residing in the U.S.
ℹ️ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). It is an agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security and was established in 2003 following the 9/11 tragedy.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Immi…
ICE was designed to keep us safe from terrorists—for instance, the terrorists who took over the planes on 9/11 were living undetected in the U.S. for over a year.

Pls read this thoroughly before commenting. The Trump administration has corrupted this agency to do horrific acts.
