The two classically trained dancers surpassed a strenuous auditioning process and made it to the 2018 squad for the Los Angeles Rams. They were chosen from 76 finalists. On Wednesday, they joined the Good Morning America table to share the news. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When discussing their journey, Peron shared that he should be able to participate like anyone else. "I thought, 'Why not me? Why can't I do this?' And called my friend and I asked her when auditions were for the Rams and she told me Sunday [March 11] and I showed up," Peron said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ LA Rams cheer captain EmilyLeibert said the two simply fit in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “They really just fit the bill to be a Los Angeles Rams cheerleader. They are intelligent, they are eloquent, they are more than qualified to be ambassadors out in the community. They bring so much energy and there’s something so magnetic about their performance, you really can’t take your eyes off them.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While the Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts have stuntmen, this will be the first time males have ever danced alongside females on a professional NFL cheerleading team.

Arguing, Memes, and New York: WE March u Today, We Count! Fill it Out Mail it Back 2010census.gov cReek U.S. NEWs THE 2020 CENSUS Mar 28 The 2020 census will ask if taker is a U.S. citizen, causing at least 12 states to file lawsuits. The U.S. Census Bureau announced on Monday they will be including a question to the 2020 census that asks if the taker is a U.S. citizen. The decision caused at least 12 states to sue in order to stop it from being implemented. Individuals opposing the addition argue that it will deter immigrants from participating, which will skew the results. The Constitution requires all residents to be counted regardless of citizenship status. New York state attorney general Eric T. Schneiderman is leading a multi state lawsuit to stop the move. Officials in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Washington plan to follow suit. California filed a separate lawsuit Monday night. ___ Census results are used to determine political boundaries, as well as school boards and House seats. The census also decides where federal grants and subsidies are allocated. Attorney Schneiderman says that the change “will create an environment of fear and distrust in immigrant communities that would make impossible both an accurate census and the fair distribution of federal tax dollars.” ___ Photo: Jason E.

Queen Latifah, Life, and Love: Queen Latifah's Mother Rita Owens Dies From Chronic Heart Condition@balleralert mao Queen Latifah’s Mother Rita Owens Dies From Chronic Heart Condition - blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dana Owens a.k.a the great Queen Latifah, announced Wednesday that her mother, Rita Owens, has passed away from a severe heart condition that has been ailing her for more than a decade. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It is with a heavy heart that I share the news, my mother, Rita Owens passed away today... Anyone that has ever met her knows what a bright light she was on this earth. She was gentle, but strong, sweet, but sassy, worldly but pragmatic, a woman of great faith and certainly the love of my life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Heart failure is a chronic progressive condition where the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently through the body. Rita Owens was on medication, had a defibrillator implanted in her chest to prevent heart attacks, and a strict diet of low salts and fats with lots of vegetables. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ”She had struggled with a heart condition for many years and her battle is now over... I am heartbroken but know she is at peace. Thank you for your kindness, support and respect for our privacy at this time. Much Love, Dana Owens (aka Queen Latif‎ah), forever Rita Owens’ daughter.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Latifah mentioned to PEOPLE in a previous interview in 2015 that when she was not in California, she was at her mother’s New Jersey home helping with caregiving duties. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She broke the news to PEOPLE about her mother’s death and impact on her life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I watched her come through so many things, ups and downs, hospitalizations – I mean really being in the ICU for that matter – you know, going through tough times and watching her come back and bounce back and still maintain this sense of humor, and love and drive and will...

Family, Memes, and Money: Street Vendor Robbed and Brutally Beaten in South Los Angeles By Christine Kim Públished at 6:40 PM PDT on Mar 18, 2018 | Updated 2 hours ago 1.7k Justice for Pedro! Please donate: bit.ly/justice4pedro Please Donate! 💜🙏🏽🙇🏾‍♀️ LINK in our BIO! @UndocuMedia. . If you made a donation COMMENT “Done ✔️" . Via NBC News: "A family is pleading for the public’s help after their loved one – a street vendor - was robbed and brutally beaten right before his shift. Pedro Reyes, 54, was among a group of street vendors setting up shop around 5 a.m. Sunday at San Pedro Street and 31st Street in South Los Angeles. Two vehicles pulled up and a group of young men inside demanded money from three street vendors, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Reyes told detectives he threw his money at the suspects and ran – and that’s when they chased after him and beat him up. His stepson told NBC4 that the group of people knocked out three of Reyes' teeth, cut his throat, fractured his face and left him unconscious. Reyes was the most severely hurt – the other two vendors had minor injuries and were not taken to the hospital. Police say the suspects took money from all three of them, though. Reyes remains hospitalized at California Hospital Medical Center in downtown Los Angeles. He's set to undergo surgery Monday on his face. Speaking from his hospital bed, Reyes said six men attacked him, leaving him unconscious and waking up in the hospital. His stepson said doctors are estimating it will take Reyes at least six months to fully recover from the attack. He does not have health insurance and a GoFundMe has so far raised almost $40,000 for his medical costs. He said his father is a man who works everyday – does roofing six days a week and on Sundays sells fruit. His main worry now is how to support his family. If you would like to donate to a GoFundMe account set up for Pedro Reyes, you may do so here. Note that GoFundMe deducts 2.9 percent of all funds raised, plus 30 cents per donation, in the form of payment processing charges."

Just before 7:30 one Friday morning last March, Alejandro said goodbye to his wife Maria and his two small daughters and headed off to work. He didn’t make it far. Four blocks from his home near Bakersfield, Calif., two unmarked vehicles, a white Honda and a green Mazda pickup truck, pulled up behind him at a stop sign. Plain-clothes Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents spilled out. They wore vests emblazoned with the word Police. . . Alejandro dialed Maria from his cell phone and told her what was happening. Her heart dropped. She said later that she knew it wouldn’t matter that Alejandro had no criminal record, not even a speeding ticket. Or that he’d driven these same roads every day for the past decade, picking grapes, pistachios and oranges in California’s Central Valley. Since 2006, when Alejandro overstayed his visa, he had been considered a “fugitive alien,” in ICE parlance, and therefore subject to immediate deportation to Mexico. Now he was arrested on the spot. . . A few days later, he was given an ankle bracelet and allowed to return home to say goodbye.
