That morning, a little before eight o’clock, Damms drove his automobile to the vicinity in Milwaukee where he knew Mrs. Dams would take the bus to go to work. He saw her walking along the sidewalk, stopped, and induced her to enter the car by falsely stating that Mrs. Grant was ill and dying. They drove to Mrs. Grant’s home. Mrs. Damms then discovered that her mother was up and about and not seriously ill. Nevertheless, the two Damms remained there nearly two hours conversing and drinking coffee.
I felt very uncomfortable being there any longer. I called my gram, she arranged for me to take a Greyhound bus to my Aunt and Uncle's house in Missouri, that way I could ride back to New Hampshire with them when they drove here to visit. I was excited to get back home and see everyone, I had been gone for almost 5 months. When we finally pulled into my gram's driveway we were met by my whole family. It felt great knowing how much they missed me, my Aunt, Uncle and their children.
The author opens the story with “Mandy stole my boyfriend, Tiny.” The first sentence already sets the story’s conflict and lets readers understand the plot right in the beginning. The story takes place on the streets of south Minneapolis and deals with the rough lives of Southeast Asian gangs in America. Focusing on the girls in those gangs, the author takes a step away from stereotypical male gang violence stories and places the audience in shoes of an Asian woman. Vang’s descriptive writing is depicted when the two black girls were mugged, “Nikki, my best friend, did a pretend karate kick she saw in a movie just to scare them as we approached cursing and threatening. She loved to perpetuate the myth that all Asians knew Kung Fu.

The case that I will be writing a brief on is the case DICKERSON v. UNITED STATES, 530 U.S. 428 (2000). In this case, Charles Dickerson, the petitioner, confessed to committing a crime during his questioning by law enforcement. The petitioner motioned to the court that his confession was obtained by his law enforcement officer before being read his Miranda rights. Subsequently, “[t]he District Court granted Dickerson’s motion and suppressed the statement as evidence, but the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit (the “Fourth Circuit”) allowed the statements into evidence.”(casebriefs) Ever since the case Miranda v.

Chief Justice William Rehnquist referred to the Miranda case during the ruling of the 2000 Dickerson v. United States.

DHS merged 22 federal agencies and dissolved INS, which had been part of the Department of Justice since 1941. The terrorist attacks of 2001 became a catalyst for passage of far-reaching laws with implications not only for suspected terrorists, but also for foreign-born individuals already in the United States and all noncitizens seeking to enter the country. The most well-known among these has been the USA Patriot Act, which then President George W. Bush signed in October 2001” (Retrieved from http://www.migrationinformation.org, 2011). The act expanded the law enforcement powers of the federal government to uphold illegal immigration
