It was a strange moment of triumph against racism: The gun-slinging white supremacist Craig Cobb, dressed up for daytime TV in a dark suit and red tie, hearing that his DNA testing revealed his ancestry to be only "86 percent European, and ... 14 percent Sub-Saharan African." The studio audience whooped and laughed and cheered. And…

 A tiny insect is placing Florida citrus in jeopardy, but residents can help.

Citrus trees in the Sunshine State are under attack from the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), a tiny mottled brown insect about the size of an aphid that feeds on the new Leafs of citrus trees and some ornamental plants.

It also leaves behind plant bacteria and leads to what's called citrus greening disease.

Researchers have found a wasp (Tamarixia) that controls the bug, and homeowners are asked to set some of them free into their own yards and gardens.

The Florida Department of Agriculture is mailing out packages of the wasp to anyone who requests them.

Jim Notestein, a long-time Gainesville resident, is helping spread the word around the state. He says the wasps don't sting and are easy to release.

"When the good wasps are sent to you, you want to open your package fairly quickly and put the wasps out to go to work,” he states. “There'll be instructions on the package.

“They'll be sent in the overnight mail. You wouldn't want to get your package of bugs, and let them sit on the counter for a week. The wasps only live for about three weeks."

Environmental groups urge the use of natural predators as opposed to toxic pesticides.

Florida has already had to deal with the Citrus canker, Whitefly infestations, fire ants, and other viruses and diseases. Notestein says this is a problem that Floridians can help solve.

"We're hoping this is going to be kind of a human network that once people who find out that have kind of a vision of a better future that they could be part of making, the so-called citizen scientists,” he states.

Notestein says if enough people release the wasp and it becomes established in neighborhoods, it can become the first line of defense to save fruit trees in Florida.

Rep. Deutch Co-Introduces Bill to Protect Immigrant Youth

American Hope Act will protect DACA recipients and DREAMers from deportation


Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) joined with Congressman Luis Gutierrez (IL-4) and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to introduce the "American Hope Act of 2017," a bill to provide a permanent legislative solution to the immigrant status of more than 800,000 young people enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).
"The foundation of the relationship between DREAMers and the U.S. government has been built on trust. These children placed their trust in us when they came forward to register under DACA. They, and their families, are vital parts of our communities. They do not deserve to have their trust betrayed and the roots that they have grown here to be pulled out from under them," said Congressman Deutch. "The President's callous treatment of immigrant youth demands a strong response from Congress. I'm proud to stand up for DACA and all of the DREAMers in South Florida by cosponsoring the American Hope Act."

The American Hope Act would:
  • Allow DACA beneficiaries and other immigrant youth to apply for conditional permanent resident status;
  • Allow those granted CPR status to obtain full lawful permanent resident status after 3 years if they have no arrest record;
  • Provide a 5-year path to U.S. citizenship;
  • Allow minors to apply for conditional permanent resident status through a legal guardian or counsel; and
  • Improve college affordability for undocumented youth and other immigrants by repealing rules that limit their access to in-state tuition and college loans.
Deutch supported passage of the DREAM Act in the House of Representatives in December 2010.
