Professor Tanya Marsh writes in The Huffington Post about the greening of American burials

As Jessica Mitford explained in her 1963 blockbuster, The American Way of Death, American funerary and burial practices are incredibly consumptive and expensive.

Professor Margaret Taylor quoted in L.A. Times regarding immigrant children ordered deported without going to court

More than 7,000 immigrant children have been ordered deported without appearing in court since large numbers of minors from Central America began illegally crossing the U.S. border in 2013, federal statistics show. Margaret Taylor, a law professor at Wake Forest University, says in the article following from the Los Angeles Times that “immigrants who have been ordered deported may eventually file motions to reopen their cases. To do so, an immigrant must prove that he or she did not receive a notice to appear or couldn’t show up for the hearing.” Taylor further states that, “Those future cases will create new strains on what she calls an underfunded, overburdened and ‘antiquated’ court system.” She noted that immigrants are required to file address changes through the mail, instead of online, which may open the door to errors.
