Bennett was the first Seattle player announced during pregame introductions before the home opener against the 49ers and ****received one of the loudest ovations.**** (NFL fans are becoming...

    Former President Obama lashed out at President Trump for ending the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program, which was thought to be on shaky legal ground. Obama ripped Trump as “cruel,” lacking ” basic decency” and acting “contrary to our spirit, and to common sense.” “To target these young people is wrong – because they have done nothing wrong. It is self-defeating – because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love. And it is cruel,” Obama wrote in a lengthy Facebook post. “What...

"Whatever concerns or complaints Americans may have about immigration in general, we shouldn't threaten the future of this group of young people who are here through no fault of their own, who pose no threat, who are not taking away anything from the rest of us,"...
