Trump's season of fear: inside the devastation left by immigration raids

Trump season of fearJust after 8am on the first of March, Lucia Gomez sat snarled in traffic on her way to her office when she received a call from an undocumented worker – an elderly member of the labor union where she works as an organizer.

Two officers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) were knocking at the door of the man’s apartment building in Union City, New Jersey. Should he let them in? Was it unlawful to not let them in? If he didn’t open the door, would they find a way to arrest and deport him anyway?


Video poses new questions about 2014 Ferguson police shooting

Michael BrownPreviously undisclosed video of Michael Brown, recorded hours before the unarmed black 18-year-old was fatally shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, has raised new questions about his final hours.

The footage shows Brown - whose death in 2014 prompted national protests and kindled a debate about how U.S. police treat minorities - at a convenience store the night before he was killed. It was unearthed by a documentary filmmaker, according to the New York Times.


Mayors resist Trump's immigration policies: ‘We cannot submit to a bully’

Trump faces mayor rebellionDonald Trump is a bully whose immigration policies represent a threat to the safety and prosperity of American cities, according to the mayors of sanctuary cities Santa Fe and Philadelphia.

Federal Judges Find Racial Gerrymandering in Texas

Texas gerrymandering biasedFederal judges found more problems in Texas' voting rights laws, ruling that Republicans racially gerrymandered some congressional districts to weaken the growing electoral power of minorities, who former President Barack Obama set out to protect at the ballot box before leaving office.

The ruling late Friday by a three-judge panel in San Antonio gave Democrats hope of new, more favorably drawn maps that could turn over more seats in Congress in 2018. But the judges in their 2-1 decision didn't propose an immediate fix, and Texas could appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.


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.
