Get informed, vote

President Trump has three problems with being able to live up to his campaign promises: 1) DACA; 2) our crumbling infrastructure; 3) media focus on his frankness. Spokane has three problems too: 1) potholes; 2) the lack of attention to the construction Highway 395 - the fabled North-South Freeway - to Canada or California; 3) the lack of jobs in construction for those who are able bodied and/or in college.

Congress can do something about all three of Trump’s problems and Spokane’s. So can non-citizen immigrants. But first, they must pass the citizenship test, vote and know where the congressional connections lie. And connections in Connecticut, and decisions in Delaware, Georgia and Maryland, mean Massachusetts will have three new highways joined in New Hampshire, New Jersey, and New York with North Carolina and Pennsylvania, and roads to Rhode Island, South Carolina and Virginia.
