Trump's revised travel ban dealt first court setback

New ban, same biasWith just three weeks to go before the federal government is set to start issuing an annual allotment of visas for foreign workers, advocates for Americans displaced by foreigners are increasingly worried President Trump won’t take action in time to fix the problem, and thousands more American jobs will be lost.

Numerous companies have outsourced work in recent years to contractors that use foreign labor, mainly tech workers with coveted H-1B visas. That includes companies such as Disney, New York Life, and Toys R Us.


Two convicted of conspiracy in armed standoff at Oregon wildlife refuge

2 convicted of conspiracy in Oregon standoffA jury on Friday convicted two men of conspiracy to impede federal officers during last year’s high-profile armed occupation of a wildlife refuge in Oregon.

The verdict handed prosecutors some measure of redemption after they failed to convict occupation leaders Ammon and Ryan Bundy and five other occupiers in a trial last fall involving the takeover of Malheur national wildlife refuge in a protest over control of federal lands.


British tourists, other foreigners not allowed to take tours at Trump White House, officials say

White House tours exclude foereignersThe Trump White House is open to visitors — just not all of them.

Visitors from England and other foreign nations don't seem to be eligible right now to get a glance at President Trump's new home in Washington.

Earlier this week the Trump administration opened up the White House for tours for the first time since the inauguration, and noted that citizens of foreign countries should contact their embassies "for assistance" if they want to visit.


Man facing deportation gets extension after clergy support

Clergy supports deporteeA man who entered the U.S. illegally more than 25 years ago received a 60-day extension Friday to seek a stay of deportation after several dozen members of the clergy and a U.S. senator showed their support by marching to a federal building in Newark, New Jersey.

Cardinal Joseph Tobin, the Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey's largest Roman Catholic archdiocese, and New Jersey U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez were among those who rallied in support of Catalino Guerrero on Friday.


San Francisco Asks Federal Judge to Block Trump’s Order on Sanctuary Cities

SF challenges ban on sanctuary citiesSan Francisco has asked a federal judge to block President Trump’s order threatening to deny federal funding to sanctuary cities that don’t actively pursue undocumented immigrants. City authorities on Wednesday asked U.S. District Judge William H. Orrick for a preliminary injunction against the president’s executive order until a lawsuit against it can be heard.

The city’s motion argued that Trump’s order infringes on the sovereignty of cities and exceeds the president’s authority. City Attorney Dennis Herrera described Trump as a “bully” for threatening to withhold federal funding for public aid programs.


1M without power in Mich., N.Y., Ohio after windstorms

windstormsHundreds of thousands of people were without power Thursday after windstorms struck cities around Lake Erie.

The weather across the area Wednesday was sunny but winds of more than 60 mph caused damage across Michigan. Around 1 million people in the state lost power, at least temporarily. Three thousand power lines fell in southeastern Michigan, where a thus-far mild winter has created softer ground, leading to the uprooting of trees. More than 875,000 electricity customers statewide were without power Thursday morning.
