Migrant caravan re-forms in Mexico, members vow to reach US

Migrant caravan reaches MexicoDespite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, about 2,000 Central American migrants swam or rafted across a river separating that country from Guatemala, re-formed their mass caravan in Mexico and vowed to resume their journey toward the United States.

The migrants, who said they gave up trying to enter Mexico legally because the asylum process was too slow, gathered on Saturday at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo. They voted by a show of hands to continue north en masse, then marched to the bridge crossing the Suchiate River and urged those still on it to come join them.

US student detained in Israel

A 22-year-old American graduate student has appealed against her detention at Israel's international airport over her alleged support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Lara Alqasem appeared in a Tel Aviv court on Thursday. She will remain in detention until the court delivers a ruling; no date for the ruling has been fixed.

Israel has come under heavy criticism for its handling of Alqasem's case.

Alqasem, who is of Palestinian descent, has been held at Israel's Ben Gurion Airport for more than a week since arriving from the United States to begin a master's degree at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, despite having a valid visa.

DHS not prepared for family separations under Trump zero tolerance policy, watchdog finds

DHS not prepared for family separationshe Department of Homeland Security was not ready to carry out the Trump administration's family separation policy, and some of the government's practices made the problem worse, according to a report issued Tuesday by the department's inspector general.

"DHS was not fully prepared to implement the admiistration's zero-tolerance policy or to deal with some of its after-effects," said John Kelly, the acting inspector general.

Prior to the walkout, dozens of rights groups held a protest in the Senate office buildings, as well as outside the Supreme Court.

Trump Administration Aims to Sharply Restrict New Green Cards for Those on Public Aid

Trump to deny green cards to legal immigrants on welfareTrump administration officials announced Saturday that immigrants who legally use public benefits like food assistance and Section 8 housing vouchers could be denied green cards under new rules aimed at keeping out people the administration deems a drain on the country.

The move could force millions of poor immigrants who rely on public assistance for food and shelter to make a difficult choice between accepting financial help and seeking a green card to live and work legally in the United States.

Older immigrants, many of whom get low-cost prescription drugs through the Medicare Part D program, could also be forced to stop participating in the popular benefits program or risk being deemed a “public charge” who is ineligible for legal resident status.
