The Dallas Morning News once supported Republicans, like Gov. Mitt Romney in 2002, and of course President George W. Bush, President George Bush and President Ronald Reagan. In 2016, it went for Hillary Clinton, and then in 2018 for Beto O'Rourke.
President Joe Biden’s administration, which promised a more humane and responsible immigration policy, seems to have been caught flat-footed by the massive surge of migrants from Central America to the United States, and has made a bad situation worse by issuing messages that are as clear as mud.Administration officials have spent the last few days trying to send the belated message that the border is closed. But for weeks, those officials also emphasized that they were reversing the Trump administration’s border policies and would be more welcoming.No wonder the border is in crisis. When the message is so muddled, people who are desperate to flee dangerous situations at home hold out hope that they will be allowed to enter if they simply show up at the border.And the administration can’t say it didn’t know this was coming. In promising to roll back Trump’s immigration policies, Biden had asked for time to implement “guardrails” to avoid winding up with “2 million people on our border.”
'Expectations were created that with the government of President Biden there would be a better treatment of migrants'
I don't know where this is going to end but I wouldn't want to be a Democrat running in a competitive district in 2022. High gasoline prices and chaos on the border is not a good platform.
Tom broke with the Braves in 1987 and lost 17 games in 1988. However, his career turned around in 1989 (14-8 & 3.68 ERA). He became one of the best pitchers in baseball in the 1990's and beyond.
Tom retired with 305 wins, 244 with Atlanta and the rest with the New York Mets. He was 14-16 in the post season but did pitch very well in the World Series (4-3 with a 2.16 ERA).

A few days ago, the retro channel showed "Houdini", a 1953 film with Tony Curtis & Janet Leigh. It is the story of the famous Harry Houdini and based on the 1928 book "Houdini" by Harold Kellock.
I found this movie to be very entertaining. Curtis & Leigh make a great pair.
