— FRONT PAGE WITH BIG PICTURE: Behind the wheel without a license: Migrants buying cars to make a life in Chicago – NELL SALZMAN (COMMENT: Where did the money come to buy these cars? I bought my first car in 1964 when I was 16. It was a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air. The money came from what I had earned doing yard work and delivering newspapers the previous 2 years.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Behind a West Loop migrant shelter, dozens of cars sit without license plates. Several of their owners stand nearby, acknowledging they lack licenses to drive them. But they increasingly have been driving, according to a Tribune analysis of police data that suggests sharp rises in arrests among migrants for breaking traffic laws. The analysis found many are now being detained in Chicago each week for driving- or vehicle-related infractions, roughly at five times the rate from last summer. “Start where you are. Do what you can. Use what you have,” said Jose Fernandez, 30 from Trujillo, Venezuela. It’s difficult to know for sure how many migrants are charged or ticketed because police don’t keep precise data on when they arrest asylum-seekers. But what is often available in arrest data — the arrestees’ country of birth — suggests that driving- and vehicle-related offenses have become the primary reason migrants end up being detained by officers. The Tribune focused on arrestees born in Venezuela because census figures show few native Venezuelans lived in Chicago before Texas Gov. Greg Abbott began busing migrants north 18 months ago, and city officials say that Venezuelans make up the majority of the over 37,000 migrants who’ve arrived since.)

He immediately, rudely, if not threatenly fired me. But then, Oldsmobile withdrew its job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint.)

— What limited your career advancement the most? For me, it was a) my majoring in management instead of accounting, b) my refusing to become a Democrat, c) my opposing political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, d) my becoming an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 when I was 40 that charged my superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, and e) my bad demographics: conservative, Republican, White, male, draft-avoider, Protestant, German American, and my ancestor have been in America for a long time.
