questions. Make sure you download the pdf to follow along
and check the show notes for the answers. Let’s get started. Simón Bolívar led armies against Spain for
independence of its former South American colonies: Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, Ecuador,
Peru and Bolivia. He is hailed as El Libertador. 1. There were 13 original states. Name three. 2. Who is the “Father of Our Country”? (69) Pedro Hernandez was convicted for murder by
a Texas court that systematically excluded Mexican-Americans. In 1954, the US Supreme Court required that
Hernandez be retried by a jury whose jurors were chosen without discrimination. The Court held that the 14th Amendment protects
persons beyond the racial classes of white or black, and extends protection to nationality
groups as well. 3. What is one responsibility that is only for
United States citizens?* (49) 4. What movement tried to end racial discrimination? (84) “The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
(DACA) was an U.S. immigration policy that allowed some individuals who entered the country
as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation
and to be eligible for a work permit.” “As of 2017, approximately 800,000 individuals—referred
to as Dreamers after the DREAM Act bill—were enrolled in the program created by DACA. The policy was established by the Obama administration
as an Executive Order in June 2012 and rescinded by the Trump administration in September 2017.” As of September 2017, groups across America,
many of which are led by Latino youth, have mobilized to support DACA and comprehensive
immigration reform. 5. What is the “rule of law”? 6. Who makes federal laws? 7. Who signs bills to become laws? 8. Who vetoes bills? 9. What are two rights of everyone living in
the United States? 10. What are two ways that Americans can participate
in their democracy? (Jennifer introduces Sklp) Skip says: “What makes us great is our diversity…. The strength of our many talents, philosophies, and cultures that have grown together to make our union stronger.” (Jennifer asks Skip: Do you have any advice for students who want to study English or Citizenship at our Adult Schools?) Skip says: “Get rest and know that we are here to support your dreams.” Thank you, so much! Thanks to the students and staff from Milpitas Adult
