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.

“Just being able to have a city people can feel proud of,” said Santa Fe mayor Javier Gonzales, “that is under threat because of the president’s efforts to expand the role of Ice and disrupt and demonize many immigrants and their families in a way that’s very harmful to our cities.”


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.

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.
