In advance of the December 23, 2015 deadline, nearly 100 Mexican citizens who were identified by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sought relief under the settlement agreement reached in Lopez-Venegas v. Johnson, No. CV 13-03972-JACK (PLAx), (C.D. Cal, Mar. 11, 2015). The settlement agreement was available to qualifying individuals who accepted voluntary return in Southern California between June 1, 2009 and August 28, 2014.

Although Clinton would be an improvement on Israel over the atrocious Obama/Kerry policies of the last three years, she would be far worse for Israel than nearly all of the Republican candidates. I do not have a horse in the Democratic race, but a second President Clinton would probably be the least bad (everything is relative) of the three options. However, I hope that she is defeated in the general election by a strong Republican such as Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, or Jeb Bush.
