The mistake primarily stems from an online form change to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, made Jan. 1 that expanded the field to enter income.

I’m going to take a strong stance on what I perceive to be biased reporting by a majority of the Latino media – most notably Univision, Telemundo and similar stations. In my opinion, these networks are presenting a prejudiced take on the crisis at the Texas border, in which thousands of children from Central America are crossing over into the United States.
