Examples of Whose in a Sentence

  1. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders:

    The president was very clearly referring to MS-13 gang members who enter the country illegally and whose deportations are hamstrung by our laws, this is one of the most vicious and deadly gangs that operates by the motto of ‘rape, control and kill.’ If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they’re more than welcomed to. Frankly, I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough.

  2. J. G. Ballard:

    Hell is out of fashion -- institutional hells at any rate. The populated infernos of the 20th century are more private affairs, the gaps between the bars are the sutures of one's own skull. A valid hell is one from which there is a possibility of redemption, even if this is never achieved, the dungeons of an architecture of grace whose spires point to some kind of heaven. The institutional hells of the present century are reached with one-way tickets, marked Nagasaki and Buchenwald, worlds of terminal horror even more final than the grave.

  3. Anuj Somany:

    A person whose heart is broken or shaken by an unjust treatment can only attain an excellence in any profession

  4. Former Obama:

    My son, born in El Paso on the American side of that same Rio Grande where the bodies of Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and Alberto Martínez Ramírez daughter were discovered, in the same city where 22 people were just killed by a gunman whose purported' manifesto' echoed the inflammatory language of our President, turned 7 this month. I can no longer justify to him, or to myself, my complicity in the actions of this administration. That's why I choose to resign.

  5. Parisa Tabriz:

    What we've seen in the last couple of years is what we suspect to be governments trying to intercept communications, in one case, there were Iranian-region Gmail users whose connection was being intercepted.
