A Trump supporter was knocked unconscious after he clashed with demonstrators who were protesting Trump’s Muslim ban at the Portland International Airport yesterday.
This weekend, nationwide protests were held in response to Donald Trump’s executive order that places a 90-day immigration ban on seven Muslim-majority countries. Some of the largest protests were held at major US airports, in cities like New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and Los Angeles. For the most part, the events were peaceful, though during yesterday’s protest at Portland International Airport, a Trump supporter entered the anti-Trump rally and got knocked unconscious.
The protests at PDX began on Saturday, drawing 100 to 150 demonstrators, though Sunday’s crowd of about 600 protestors made for a much bigger event, reports The Oregonian. Across the country, the protests have been mostly comprised of anti-Trump participants, which perhaps explains the overall lack of violence. The man who was assaulted has been identified as 39-year-old Grant Chisholm. He was one of four men from a group called Bible Believers who went to the airport in order to stage a counter-protest.
Is Going to Law School Worth It Anymore?A 2015 study by the Access Group Center for Research and Policy Analysis found that only one in five people who graduated from law school between 2010 and 2015 strongly agreed that obtaining a law degree was worth the cost. Perhaps more troubling, only 38% of law school graduates, down from 56% between 2000 and 2009, described themselves as having a good job after graduation. With four out of five recent law school graduates at least somewhat regretting their decision to attend – and six out of 10 failing to find a good job after graduating – it makes sense to examine whether going to law school is still worth it in 2017. Keeping in mind the high tuition costs, interest rates and potential salaries, another good metric to consider would be its ROI (return on investment), calculated as its salary-to-debt ratio in a new study by online lender SoFi.
