'Turn The Plane Around': Federal Judge Threatens Sessions With Contempt

A federal judge threatened Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, III with contempt of court for deporting asylum seekers after Department of Justice lawyers assured him none would be deported before Friday.

After learning that a mother and her daughter were on a plane to El Salvador, the judge was furious, thundering that the DOJ should get that plane turned around and the two asylum-seekers returned to the United States, posthaste. He also threatened Sessions with contempt of court before he issued an order stopping all deportations of asylum seekers fleeing gang and domestic violence situations.

Jacob Soboroff reports: "And [Judge Sullivan] quite literally said to the government, get these people back here as soon as you can. You can't deport plaintiffs in the middle of a case when we're adjudicating this rule in the first place!"

The deported mother and daughter were hand-picked to send a message to women and girls fleeing violence in Central American countries: Don't come here.

In the meantime, the plane will indeed be turned around in El Salvador and "Carmen" (a pseudonym) and her minor daughter J.A.C.F. will return to the United States for a proper asylum hearing.

This case is one brought by the ACLU to challenge the DOJ's policy change with regard to women and girls who flee their country and the violence they're experiencing to come to the United States and seek asylum. Earlier this year, the DOJ announced they would no longer consider domestic violence or gang violence criteria for asylum.

Seriously.

          Judge Threatens Jeff Sessions With Contempt, Orders Deported Mother and Daughter Returned to United States      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A federal judge threatened Attorney General Jeff Sessions with contempt of court on Thursday after the government broke a promise not to deport a mother and daughter fleeing gang and domestic violence in El Salvador until the judge had a chance to rule on their case.

“Turn that plane around,” U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan reportedly told the government after learning that it had deported a pair of plaintiffs, Carmen and her daughter J.A.C.F.

“We are complying with the court’s order, and upon arrival in El Salvador, the plaintiffs will not disembark and will be promptly returned to the United States,” the Homeland Security Department responded in a statement.

The ACLU has filed a lawsuit on behalf of 12 immigrants against Sessions’ recently announced ruling making it harder for domestic and gang violence victims to seek asylum. The group said that the government had issued “assurances in open court [on Wednesday] that no plaintiff would be deported before midnight [Thursday].”

The Washington Post reported on the dramatic events that led the ACLU to discover that two of their clients had been deported in contravention of the government’s promise:

[L]ead ACLU attorney Jennifer Chang Newell, who was participating in the court hearing via phone from her office in California, received an email during the hearing that said the mother and daughter were being deported.

During a brief recess, she told her colleagues the pair had been taken from a family detention center in Dilley, Tex., to the airport in San Antonio for a morning flight.

After being informed of the situation, Sullivan granted the ACLU’s request to delay deportations for Carmen and the other plaintiffs until the lawsuit is decided, and ordered the government to “turn the plane around.”

Justice Department attorney Erez Reuveni said he had not been told the deportation was happening that morning and could not confirm the whereabouts of Carmen and her daughter.

Four of the plaintiffs had already been deported, but on Thursday Judge Sullivan issued an order enjoining the government from deporting the eight remaining ones, including Carmen and J.A.C.F.

The case of Carmen and J.A.C.F. demonstrates the cruelty of Sessions’ decision in June to unilaterally overturn a Board of Immigration Appeals ruling that had granted domestic violence survivors the opportunity to apply for asylum on the basis of persecution for “membership in a particular social group.” That board had determined in 2014 that women in a certain country who are unable to leave abusive relationships counted as such a group for asylum seeking purposes, but Sessions’ overturned that decision.

Here’s how Carmen and J.A.C.F.’s case is described in the ACLU lawsuit:

Carmen’s husband routinely raped, stalked, and threatened her with death, treating her as his property, even after they were living apart. … Carmen also fears that she and her daughter would be killed by a violent gang, who targeted her because she was a vulnerable single mother living alone with her child, and because she had a good factory job. They held her up at gunpoint in May 2018 when she was on her way home from work and demanded that she pay a monthly “tax,” making clear that they would kill her little girl if she did not comply. The gang also threatened to kill her if she went to the police. Because four or five of her co-workers were killed by the same gang in the past year, she knew the threats were serious and fled with J.A.C.F. to avoid death.

“This is pretty outrageous,” Judge Sullivan said, according to the Post, upon learning that the pair had been sent back to El Salvador. “That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?”

“I’m not happy about this at all,” he continued. “This is not acceptable.”

Carmen and J.A.C.F. are exactly the type of asylum seekers who would have had the opportunity to pursue their cases under the previous regime. The ACLU says that they were “found to have testified credibly” in their credible fear interview in June, but rejected anyway, apparently because of Sessions’ earlier ruling. That rejection was affirmed by an immigration judge last month.

Now, though, the pair are apparently to be returned to the United States where Judge Sullivan, a Bill Clinton appointee, will rule on their eligibility for asylum and on Sessions’ decision to overturn the previous policy.

“In its rush to deport as many immigrants as possible, the Trump administration is putting these women and children in grave danger of being raped, beaten, or killed,” Chang Newell said in a statement. “We are thrilled the stay of removal was issued but sickened that the government deported two of our clients—a mom and her little girl—in the early morning hours. We will not rest until our clients are returned to safety.”

Por su parte, en México el Presidente de la plataforma Dilo Bien, Carlos Ramírez, celebró en Twitter que “¡ganó la vida!” y dio “¡gloria a Dios!”.

Rodrigo Iván Cortés, Presidente del Frente Nacional por la Familia de México, aseguró que la decisión del Senado en Argentina “es algo que tenemos que celebrar: ganó la vida”.

“Desde México lo que tenemos que hacer es seguir el ejemplo que se ha dado en Argentina, tenemos que dejar atrás la cultura de la muerte”, aseguró en un video publicado poco después de la votación en Argentina.

Ante reciente el intento de legalizar el aborto en el estado mexicano de Veracruz, Cortés alentó a “ponernos las pilas” y “hacer que esa ola celeste llegue hasta nuestra patria y defender la vida de los mexicanos”.

La portavoz de la plataforma española Derecho a Vivir, Dra. Gádor Joya, destacó en un comunicado que “hemos visto en Argentina una movilización ciudadana muy masiva y muy mantenida en el tiempo, defendiendo la vida de la de la madre y los niños que van a nacer. Por ello, los representantes políticos se han sentido respaldados y animados a la hora de votar en contra de un proyecto que atenta contra el derecho a la vida”.

Joya recordó la campaña de CitizenGO que recogió más de 100 mil firmas en todo el mundo en contra de la legalización del aborto en Argentina, y celebró que “los argentinos han hablado alto y claro para posicionarse en contra del aborto”.

“Lo han hecho sin miedo. Su lucha servirá de ejemplo para muchos países”, aseguró.

La Arquidiócesis de Monterrey (México) se sumó a la oración en defensa de la vida a través de Twitter, e invitó a todos a acudir este Jueves Eucarístico “a Hora Santa y pide a Dios por la vida”

La Organización Mundial de la Salud considera el 95% de los abortos que se realizan en América Latina, como inseguros. Las cifras superan los 7 millones de abortos al año y la tasa anual en este continente es de 44 abortos cada 1.000 mujeres en edad reproductiva. El aborto no está permitido bajo ninguna circunstancia en la República Dominicana, El Salvador, Haití, Honduras, Nicaragua, Surinam, donde incluso hay penas de cárcel para quien lo practique. En Cuba el aborto es legal hace más de medio siglo. También en ciudad de México.

          Argentina's Senate trashes bill to legalise abortion      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

[Argentina], August 9 (ANI): Argentina's Senate on Thursday rejected a proposed bill on legalising elective abortion in the country.

The bill would have allowed women to terminate their pregnancy in the first 14 weeks. According to current Argentine laws, abortions can be carried out only when the mother's health is at risk or in rape cases, CNN reported.

The Senate voted against the bill, 38 to 31, with two abstentions and one absentee. As the outcome of the vote was announced, demonstrators got engaged in clashes with the police outside the National Congress building in Buenos Aires.

In June, Argentine Chamber of Deputies or the lower house of Congress narrowly passed the bill 129 to 125 with one abstention.

The proposed abortion bill, which was a raging issue in Argentina in the past few months, saw protestors, both in favour and against abortion taking to the streets. While the anti-abortion demonstrators protested under blue coloured "save both lives" banners, pro-abortion protestors flashed banners and wore green bandanas, loosely wrapped and tied around their necks, as per the CNN report.

Most Latin American countries permit abortions for medical reasons. There is a blanket ban on abortion in many countries such as Chile, Suriname, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, Sputnik reported.

In Mexico, abortion is legal only in the nation's capital Mexico City. The voluntary termination of pregnancy is legal only in Cuba, Uruguay, Guyana and Puerto Rico. (ANI)

Hispanic Heritage Month is a nationally recognized, not-quite-a-month. (It's the back half of September and the front half of October). That, according to the government's website , is because Sept. 15 marks the anniversary of Independence from Spain in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala and Costa Rica. (Mexico declared its independence a day later). And Oct. 12 is Día de la Raza , loosely translated as Day of the Race, or "Columbus Day" — a national holiday in a number of Latin American countries. Día de la Raza marks Christopher Columbus' landfall in the Caribbean, and is celebrated in various Latin American countries as the start of the "hispanicization" of the "new world." (Though it seems weird to me that the month spans both September AND October to include a day many believe marks the beginning of the rape, pillage and genocide that began with Columbus' voyage. But, I digress.) Now, the whole notion that those of us from the Latin American diaspora refer to ourselves as

          Judge Orders Return Of Deported Asylum-Seekers       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Updated at 9:40 p.m. ET

A federal judge in Washington, D.C., has threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in contempt of court if they fail to return to the U.S. a mother and daughter seeking asylum. The immigrants were deported ahead of a scheduled hearing with the court on Thursday.

A transcript of Thursday's hearing shows U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan angry after being told the asylum-seekers had been deported and were on a plane out of the U.S. even while a government attorney was telling him they wouldn't be deported before midnight.

"This is pretty outrageous," Sullivan said, "Somebody in pursuit of justice in a United States court is just — is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?"

In addition to ordering the government to get the mother and daughter back, Sullivan blocked the Trump administration from deporting eight other immigrants — currently held in detention — who are part of the same lawsuit against the government for allegedly wrongfully rejecting their claims for asylum.

The order issued Thursday stated that the defendants, including Sessions, Nielsen, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service Director Lee Francis Cissna and Executive Office of Immigration Review Director James McHenry, "shall return 'Carmen' and her daughter to the United States FORTHWITH."

Carmen is a pseudonym to protect the woman's identity.

Court documents chronicle a sequence of events that appear to have outraged Sullivan and initiated the unusual order to return the pair to the U.S.

The judge had scheduled Thursday's emergency hearing on the motion to block the deportation after learning of their imminent removal on Aug. 9. The government agreed that Carmen and her daughter "would not be removed prior to that time."

But despite the government's guarantee, Sullivan learned from the American Civil Liberties Union in open court that the two had been removed from the Dilley South Texas Family Residential Center. It wasn't until after the hearing that the government confirmed in an email that the two plaintiffs "were, in fact, on an airplane while the Court was hearing arguments" on their case.

As a result, the order states, "The Court informed government counsel that it would neither tolerate nor excuse any delay with compliance with this Order."

The lawsuit — involving a group of asylum-seekers still in custody and others already deported — was filed Tuesday by the ACLU and Center for Gender & Refugee Studies.

It argues the administration is wrongly rejecting asylum claims based on domestic abuse and gang violence. The ACLU is asking the court to invalidate a decision by Sessions that says most victims of domestic abuse and gang violence cannot qualify for asylum.

"In its rush to deport as many immigrants as possible, the Trump administration is putting these women and children in grave danger of being raped, beaten, or killed, Jennifer Chang Newell, managing attorney with the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, said in a statement.

"We are thrilled the stay of removal was issued but sickened that the government deported two of our clients — a mom and her little girl — in the early morning hours. We will not rest until our clients are returned to safety."

The Trump administration's position is that many asylum-seekers are gaming the system by exaggerating their fear of returning home.

In the event that the government does not "fully comply" with Sullivan's order to return Carmen and her daughter from El Salvador, the judge said, Sessions, Nielsen, Cissna and McHenry must appear in court to "SHOW CAUSE why they should not be held in CONTEMPT OF COURT."

Sullivan directed the administration to give him a status update by Friday afternoon.

          Argentina says no to legalized abortion as battle moves through region      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Very early Thursday morning, the Senate in Argentina voted down a bill that would legalize elective abortion. The vote was 38-31, which included two abstentions and one absentee vote. Current law will remain in place which allows abortion in the case of the mother’s health is at risk or rape. Women can be imprisoned for up to four years if the current law is broken.

The proposal would have legally allowed abortion up to fourteen weeks. After the more liberal lower house, the Argentine Chamber of Deputies narrowly passed the bill by a vote of 129-125. President Mauricio Macri said he would not veto the bill if it passed both chambers.

Pro-abortion supporters were buoyed by the vote to legalize abortion in Ireland, also a predominantly Catholic country, last May. Support for the bill was framed in much the same way it is framed through-out Europe and in America. Those in favor describe abortion as a human right and a health care issue. Both descriptions seem ironic to me, though, as the lives lost in an abortion are denied the ultimate right to life and if the concern is health care, legal abortion is allowed in a hospital in the case of the mother’s health or if the woman has been raped.

As expected, the anticipation of the vote in the Senate Thursday morning brought out protesters from both sides of the argument. A large screen outside the National Congress in Bueno Aires building brought the news to the crowd. A heavy police presence tamped down skirmishes as they emerged. Abortion movement leaders from outside the country weighed in. They vow to continue the fight.

Celia Szusterman, trustee of the UK board of Pro-Mujer and director of the Latin America program at the Institute for Statecraft, told CNN that is was “a step backward for women’s rights and women’s health.”
She says it’s a “sad day… not only because of the way the vote went but the way the campaign for and against went. It was so divisive.”
Activists say they’ll keep pushing the bill, in the hope that it passes one day soon.
“It will happen because that’s the world — to increase rights and this is one of the fundamental rights that is still not available to women in Latin America,” Szusterman said.
While pro-abortion supporters chanted “legal abortion at the hospital” outside the National Congress, the Catholic Church held a “Mass for Life” in Buenos Aires. Pope Francis didn’t weigh in during the battle in his native country but he did issue a statement earlier when the bill passed in the lower house. He issued a letter as the debate began earlier this year.
While Pope Francis hasn’t addressed the legislation directly, he did speak out strongly against abortion just days after the bill was approved by the lower house — comparing abortion to avoid birth defects to Nazi eugenics.
The pontiff also issued a letter in March, as the abortion debate began, urging Argentines to “make a contribution in defense of life and justice.”
The movement for legalized abortion is called the green wave and it is spreading across South America. Supporters wear a green bandana as a symbol of the movement and they are now being spotted in Brazil where the legislation is being considered. Last year Chile voted to ease the country’s strict ban.
Supporters of the bill rallied across the region Wednesday, in Chile, Uruguay, Mexico and Peru, as well as across the Atlantic, in Spain.
The vote in Argentina was important because of the scope of those affected. Argentina’s population is the fourth largest in South America and would have become the largest country to allow legalized abortion. With the green wave moved on to Brazil now, legalized abortion has the potential to be allowed in the continent’s most populated country. In the case of Brazil, the proposed legislation would allow abortion up to twelve weeks.
Despite not passing in the Senate, the bill is significant: Argentina is the fourth most populous country in the region and would have become the biggest country to permit abortions. Brazil, the region’s most populous country, is also in the midst of exploring permitting abortion—the Supreme Court held a hearing earlier this week to decide whether to decriminalize it up to 12 weeks.
This would amount to a potential of 126 million women granted the right to legally end a pregnancy in a hospital. Abortion supporters in Chile, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, Spain all hoped the vote in Argentina would help their path to legalization.
Currently, only three of the 33 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean allow elective abortions: Cuba, Uruguay, and Guyana. Abortions are also permitted in Mexico City. Meanwhile, six countries—Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Suriname—ban abortion entirely.

As an American woman, I’m struck by the short window being proposed by these bills. Fourteen weeks in Argentina and twelve weeks in Brazil seem quite restrictive compared to U.S. law. Also, these abortions in South America are intended to be performed in hospitals. Argentina is seen as a leader in the region.

Amnesty International’s Argentina director Mariela Belski explained that “Argentina is a country that has shaped the agenda for the region in terms of human rights,” referring to Argentina leading the way in legalizing same-sex marriage. And according to an Amnesty survey, 60% of Argentinians are in favor of abortion. The fight might not be over yet.

The legal battle moves on to Brazil now. Let’s hope for a similar outcome.

          'Turn the Plane Around': Government Wrongfully Deports Asylum Seekers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Judge orders administration to 'turn the plane around' and temporarily blocks deportations of asylum seekers fleeing sexual and gang violence.

The ACLU and the Trump administration squared off in court on Thursday over Jeff Sessions’ new policy that denies asylum protections to immigrants fleeing domestic violence and gang violence. The hearing focused on whether U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan would issue an emergency order to block the deportation of our plaintiffs, many of whom are women and children fleeing extreme sexual and gang violence, while the case proceeds. 

As the judge deliberated the stay, disturbing news came to light: Early Thursday morning the government had pulled two of our clients—a mother and her young daughter—out of their detention rooms and put them on a deportation flight back to El Salvador. This directly violated government promises in open court the previous day that no one in the case would be removed before 11:59 p.m. Thursday night.  

Judge Sullivan was outraged, saying “it was unacceptable” that someone who had alleged a credible fear and was “seeking justice in a U.S. court” would be “spirited away” while her attorneys were literally arguing on her behalf.

He ordered the government to “turn the plane around.” Further, the judge suggested that if the situation was not fixed, he would hold contempt proceedings for those responsible—starting with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Our clients on that deportation flight, Carmen* and her daughter, fled El Salvador to escape two decades of horrific sexual abuse by her husband and death threats from a violent gang. Carmen was repeatedly raped, stalked, and threatened with death by her abusive husband, even when they were living apart. In June 2018, she and her daughter escaped, seeking asylum in the United States. Despite asylum officers finding that their accounts were truthful, they were ultimately denied them asylum protection because they did not have a “credible fear of persecution.”

This disconnect is the direct result of new policies issued by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that wrongly instruct asylum officers to deny whole categories of asylum claims, specifically gutting protections for immigrants fleeing domestic violence and gang brutality.

Sessions has now characterized these types of persecution as insufficient to invoke asylum protections, despite decades of settled domestic and international law which recognize gender-based persecution as a basis for asylum. Federal courts have also recognized asylum claims in a variety of circumstances involving gang brutality.

The ACLU and the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies filed a lawsuit on Tuesday challenging the new policies. At the conclusion of Thursday’s hearing, Judge Sullivan issued the stay, temporarily blocking the deportation of any of the plaintiffs while the case proceeds.

What happened to Carmen embodies exactly why the stay is necessary: This administration has shown time and time again that in its rush to deport as many immigrants as possible, they will flout the law and callously put the most vulnerable people’s lives in danger.

          Comentario en ¿Por qué y cómo amar a Dios? por rosamagarcia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Homilía III: basada en el Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica«Si me amáis, guardaréis mis mandamientos» I. LA PALABRA DE DIOS Ex 22,21-27: «Si explotáis a viudas y huérfanos se encenderá mi ira contra vosotros» Sal 17,2-3a.3bc-4.47 y 51ab: «Yo te amo, Señor, tú eres mi fortaleza» 1Ts 1,5c-10: «Abandonasteis los ídolos para servir a Dios y esperar la vuelta de su Hijo» Mt 22,34-40: «Amarás al Señor tu Dios y a tu prójimo como a ti mismo» II. APUNTE BÍBLICO-LITÚRGICO Segunda consigna (véase Domingo anterior) para la vida de la Iglesia: el amor a Dios y al prójimo, que «sostienen la Ley entera y los profetas». Por un lado, «el que ama ha cumplido la Ley» (Rm 13,10b). Por otro lado, «en esto conocemos que amamos a Dios, en que cumplimos sus mandamientos» (1 Jn 5,3). La caridad cristiana es la moral fundamental del bautizado. Y la caridad cristiana ama según Dios, que conoce al hombre y los caminos de su felicidad. La gran diferencia entre los mandamientos de la ley antigua y los mismos trasladados a la Ley Nueva está en Jesucristo que los ha convertido en vida y en modo de ser. Son más exigentes, pero tenemos por delante un guía y un amigo. III. SITUACIÓN HUMANA En el centro del ser humano, el corazón hecho para amar. Los interrogantes se agolpan cuando se elige el amor: a quién o a quiénes amo, cómo amo ¿y cuando no satisface la expriencia del amor? Cristo ofrece hoy a los hombres el Amor, que en cristiano se llama Caridad, sin mezcla de egoísmo, y por eso con las mejores garantías. Cuanto más amor hay en el corazón del hombre, mejor refleja la imagen de Dios que hay en él. IV. LA FE DE LA IGLESIA La fe – El amor a Dios y al prójimo y los mandamientos: «Los diez mandamientos enuncian las exigencias del amor de Dios y del prójimo. Los tres primeros se refieren más al amor de Dios y los otros siete más al amor del prójimo... Los diez mandamientos están grabados por Dios en el corazón del ser humano» (2067; cf 2072). – Para la relación amor-mandamientos: 1822-1829. 2052-2074. La respuesta – Primero la esperanza de que la gracia convierte el corazón: "... «Yo soy la vid; vosotros los sarmientos. El que permanece en mí y yo en él, ése da mucho fruto...» El fruto evocado en estas palabras es la santidad de una vida hecha fecunda por la unión con Cristo... el Salvador mismo ama en nosotros a su Padre y a sus hermanos... Su persona viene a ser, por obra del Espíritu, la norma viva e interior de nuestro obrar..." (2074). – Segundo, nuestra cooperación al impulso de la caridad. Nos lo recuerda S. Pablo, que entiende los mandamientos como Jesús en el Sermón del Monte, como «la ley en su plenitud»: «no adulterarás, no matarás, no robarás, no codiciarás y todos los demás preceptos se resumen en esta fórmula: amarás a tu prójimo como a ti mismo. La caridad no hace mal al prójimo. La caridad es, por tanto, la ley en su plenitud...» (2196). El testimonio cristiano – «La culminación de todas nuestras obras es el amor. Ese es el fin; para conseguirlo, corremos; hacia él corremos; una vez llegados, en él reposamos (S. Agustín)» (1829). – «O nos apartamos del mal por temor del castigo y estamos en la disposición del esclavo, o buscamos el incentivo de la recompensa y nos parecemos a mercenarios, o finalmente obedecemos por el bien mismo del amor del que manda...y entonces estamos en la disposición de hijos (S. Basilio, reg. fus. prol.3)» (1828). Para que el amor sea auténtico ha de lograrse con la práctica de los mandamientos, camino de Dios que conoce el corazón humano, hecho «a su imagen y semejanza». Para ello hay que esperar con seguridad en que el Amor de Dios se nos da como gracia, no es fruto espontáneo del corazón humano, y hay que dejarse llevar de su impulso divino.

          HanesBrands Reconocida Como Una de las Compañías Más Admiradas de CentroAmérica Y El Caribe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

La revista Forbes reconoció a HanesBrands, empresa socialmente responsable líder en el mercado prendas para vestir de uso cotidiano, como una de las compañías más admiradas de Centroamérica y el Caribe. Hanes es la única compañía del rubro textil y de confección que forma parte de este primer ranking realizado en la región.

Para identificar y seleccionar a las 30 empresas más admiradas, Forbes realizó una encuesta con públicos de interés, estudiantes y consumidores en siete países. La encuesta evaluó los distintos atributos claves de cada compañía, incluidos el valor de la marca; la reputación; la calidad de los productos y servicios; el compromiso medioambiental; la innovación; la imagen corporativa, la inclusión de mujeres; la presencia local y global; y la responsabilidad social.

"Es un honor para HanesBrands ser reconocida por nuestras operaciones que más allá de tener un impacto directo en la vida de nuestros empleados y sus familias, también lo tiene en las comunidades donde operamos", dijo Javier Chacón, director global de operaciones para HanesBrands. "Especialmente estamos muy orgullosos de los más de 30,000 empleados que trabajan en nuestras operaciones en Centroamérica y el Caribe, quienes son finalmente los responsables de nuestro desempeño estelar en la región durante los últimos 45 años."

A diferencia de la mayoría de las compañías en la industria textil y de confección, Hanes manufactura principalmente en plantas propias en 20 países alrededor del mundo, incluyendo en la República Dominicana, El Salvador, Honduras y Puerto Rico. La compañía ha obtenido múltiples premios y reconocimientos internacionales, entre ellos:

  • Ser nombrada una de las 25 mejores compañías multinacionales para trabajar en América Latina por el Great Place to Work Institute en 2015 - la primera clasificación de este tipo para cualquier fabricante de ropa.

  • Obtener el Sello FUNDAHRSE de Empresa Socialmente Responsable durante ocho años consecutivos, así como ser premiada cinco veces por el Centro Mexicano para la Filantropía por sus prácticas y programas de responsabilidad social.

          HanesBrands Recognized as One of Most-Admired Companies in Central America and the Caribbean      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Forbes magazine has recognized HanesBrands, a socially responsible manufacturer and marketer of leading everyday basic apparel, as one of the most-admired companies in Central America and the Caribbean. Hanes is the only apparel company included in the region’s inaugural ranking.

To identify and select the 30 most-admired companies, Forbes conducted a survey with stakeholders, students and consumers in seven countries. The survey evaluated company attributes, including brand value; reputation; quality of products and services; environmental commitment; innovation; corporate image; female inclusion; local and global presence; and social responsibility.

“HanesBrands is honored to be recognized for our operations, which have a direct and positive impact on our employees and their families, as well as the communities where we conduct business,” said Javier Chacon, chief global manufacturing operations officer for HanesBrands. “But, most of all, we are incredibly proud of the 30,000-plus employees in our Central America and Caribbean operations who ultimately are responsible for our stellar performance in the region for 45 years.”

Unlike most companies in the apparel industry, Hanes primarily manufactures its garments in company-owned plants in 20 countries across the globe, including in the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Honduras and Puerto Rico. The company’s supply chain operations have earned multiple awards and international acclaim, including:

  • Being named one of the 25 best multinational companies to work for in Latin America by the Great Place to Work Institute in 2015 – the first such ranking for any apparel manufacturer.

  • Earning the Honduran Foundation for Corporate Social Responsibility Seal for eight consecutive years and the Mexican Center for Philanthropy Award five times for socially responsible practices and programs.  

  • Receiving a 2016 Responsible Business Award for best employee engagement from The Ethical Corporation. Hanes’ innovative Viviendo Verde (Green for Good) philanthropic program, which operates in Central America and the Dominican Republic, mobilizes three of Hanes’ corporate social responsibility pillars – environmental commitment, employee volunteerism and community improvement.

    The program utilizes savings from energy-management and landfill-diversion efforts to fund community projects focused on education, health, environmental protection and disaster relief that are conducted by employee volunteers. Since 2010, more than 15,000 Hanes employees have donated 600,000 hours to complete 70 projects supported by $4 million in company funding. Projects have included school and hospital refurbishments, medical clinics, clean water projects, tree plantings and beach cleanups.

La Prensa

Washington, Estados Unidos Doce países de la Organización de Estados Americanos (OEA) integran a partir de hoy el "grupo de trabajo" para Nicaragua, que busca apoyar el diálogo nacional y contribuir a la búsqueda de soluciones para la crisis, la más sangrienta desde los años 80 del siglo pasado.

La embajadora de Costa Rica ante el organismo, Rita María Hernández, que ocupa la Presidencia del Consejo Permanente, informó de que los integrantes serán Argentina, Brasil, Canadá, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Estados Unidos, Guyana, México, Panamá y Perú.

Durante la sesión, el ministro nicaragüense de Asuntos Exteriores, Denis Moncada, reiteró su oposición a la que sería una de las mayores competencia de ese "grupo de trabajo": designar una misión que visite el país, para lo que siempre es necesario el consentimiento del Ejecutivo correspondiente.

"Nicaragua rechaza y condena esta acción irrespetuosa de un grupo de países de este Consejo al intentar constituirse en una autoridad extranjera, inmiscuyéndose en los asuntos internos que competen exclusivamente a los nicaragüenses", subrayó Moncada.

Otra de sus misiones más importantes será respaldar el diálogo nacional en Nicaragua, que comenzó en mayo con la mediación de la Iglesia católica y que se encuentra estancado debido al rechazo del Gobierno a adelantar las elecciones fijadas para 2021, principal exigencia de la oposición.

En declaraciones Moncada, aseguró que el Gobierno sostiene que el diálogo es "una vía de solución" y explicó que se está debatiendo si los garantes del proceso deben seguir siendo los obispos, o si por el contrario debe ser el SICA, organismo que podría ser más favorable al presidente nicaragüense, Daniel Ortega.

"Esa es la cuestión, cómo recomponer el diálogo en Nicaragua, cómo se recompone la mediación dado que hubo algunos sectores de la Iglesia, algunos obispos que expresaron muy parcialmente su opinión común con la parte opositora y los grupos opositores", consideró Moncada.

La Prensa

San Salvador, El Salvador.

El Gobierno de El Salvador advirtió hoy de la "posibilidad" de deslizamientos en los alrededores del volcán Chaparrastique, en el departamento de San Miguel (este), por lo que pidió precaución a la ciudadanía.

El Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (MARN) informó que "debido a la ocurrencia de un flujo de escombros por lluvias intensas en las laderas del volcán Chaparrastique, se prevé condiciones de alta susceptibilidad a deslizamientos en la zona".

La entidad gubernamental indicó que, según el pronóstico meteorológico, se tendrán tormentas eléctricas y chubascos dispersos este jueves, con énfasis en la cordillera volcánica, producto de una Onda Tropical que va de salida del territorio salvadoreño, lo que "aumenta el riesgo de deslizamientos".

Lea más: Terremoto de magnitud 5,5 sacude Guatemala y El SalvadorAnte esta situación, el MARN pidió a las personas que viven en las cercanías de dicho volcán estar pendientes de su actividad, tomar las medidas de precaución necesarias, acatar las recomendaciones de Protección Civil y de los cuerpos de socorro, y evacuar, si es necesario.

El 29 de diciembre de 2013 este volcán expulsó una enorme columna de ceniza que se expandió a varias zonas del país, sin que se registraran víctimas mortales ni daños materiales severos.

Después de esa erupción, la primera en muchos años, Protección Civil emitió una alerta naranja (vigilancia) que se mantiene permanente en las faldas del volcán, que se localiza cerca de la ciudad de San Miguel, departamento del mismo nombre, a unos 138 kilómetros al este de la capital salvadoreña.


          US judge orders migrants on deportation flight to be brought back      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A federal judge on Thursday ordered an immigrant mother and daughter brought back to the United States after learning during a court hearing that the government had put them on a deportation flight to El Salvador. The pair were among 12 plaintiffs in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) challenging changes in asylum policies ordered by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Washington DC District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan was hearing a request to stay the plaintiffs' deportations, when the ACLU learned that two of them were already on a flight to Central America, the civil rights group said. Upon hearing the news, Sullivan ordered their flight returned and suggested that Sessions could be held in contempt of court, according to the ACLU. An official from the Department of Homeland Security said in an e-mailed statement that the agency is "complying with the court’s order, and upon arrival in El Salvador, the plaintiffs did not disembark and are currently en route back to the United States.” During the hearing, the judge ordered a temporary stay on deporting the nine women and three children who filed the lawsuit, according to a court filing.

          Las peticiones de Venezuela disparan las demandas de asilo en la región      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
La difícil situación que atravesaban o el peligro que corrían en sus lugares de origen llevaron a 290 personas a solicitar algún tipo de protección internacional en la región durante 2016. A día de hoy estas peticiones se han disparado y sólo en el primer semestre de 2018 ya son el doble -600- y prácticamente igualan a todas las que se registraron en todo el ejercicio pasado (766). Este aumento se explica, sobre todo, por el importante número de solicitudes de personas procedentes de Venezuela que buscan cobijo en la Comunidad escapando de un complejo escenario en su país. Tan sólo dos personas demandaron asilo procedentes del país venezolano en la región en 2015, pero al año siguiente ya comenzó a notarse la subida: 97. Pero fue durante el ejercicio pasado cuando las peticiones se dispararon y sólo hasta el 30 de junio de 2018 llevan el mismo camino, con 344 y 297, respectivamente. Es de lejos la nacionalidad más numerosa que pide protección internacional desde Castilla y León. Pero, desde las organizaciones encargadas de prestar atención a los refugiados ya advierten del aumento que se está registrando en los últimos tiempos de países centroamericanos como El Salvador u Honduras. Por el momento, en este año, la segunda nacionalidad que más solicita asilo desde la región es la colombiana, con 125 peticiones respecto a las 60 que se registraron durante todo 2017. Tras ella se encuentran las peticiones procedentes de Ucrania (38) e inmediatamente después las de El Salvador (35) y Honduras (25). Después se sitúan Georgia (13) y Rusia (11). Donde se ha notado un descenso importante respecto a otros periodos, pues las peticiones procedentes de Siria en los seis primeros meses se han registrado tan sólo tres. De estas solicitudes, se suelen estimar por parte del Ministerio alrededor de un 40 por ciento, aseguran desde Accem, una de las organizaciones que trabaja en la atención a las personas refugiadas desde Castilla y León. Más plazas Desde 2015 se están duplicando cada año las peticiones que se realizan desde la región, pero ¿por qué?. En su opinión, por un lado, la Comunidad registra el mismo fenómeno se está produciendo en todo el territorio español, pero, además, en Castilla y León las plazas para acoger a estas personas han aumentado en los últimos tiempos y eso hace que se derive a muchos solicitantes a la región. En el caso de Accem, han pasado de 40 plazas a 350 en tan sólo tres años, explica su coordinador regional, Daniel Duque. En ellas se acoge durante unos seis meses a personas cuyas solicitudes se han admitido a trámite, por lo que durante un año suelen pasar por allí alrededor de 800 demandantes de protección internacional. En una primera fase, estas personas se alojan en las viviendas que pertenecen a las organizaciones. «El trabajo de los psicólogos en esta etapa inicial es muy importante porque algunos vienen muy tocados», indica Duque, pero tampoco se descuida la inserción social y el aprendizaje del idioma para poder ganar en autonomía. Una vez superada esa fase y el varapalo emocional, arranca la segunda etapa en la que, con ayudas de las instituciones, se intenta que accedan a una vivienda y a un empleo. «Muchos tienen un perfil y una formación media-alta y no es difícil encontrar un hueco para ellos», indica el responsable regional de Accem. Pero en lo que sí hay más reticencias es en que los ciudadanos les alquilen un piso. «Ésta es quizá la parte más difícil», asegura. Por eso, trabajan codo con codo con la Administración para que estas personas puedan acceder a un techo y comenzar una nueva vida.
          Trump Administration Largely Phasing Out TPS, But Legal Challenges Are Ongoing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Temporary Protected Status (TPS) may be an endangered species.  Having terminated TPS for Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone during the past year, the Trump Administration has turned its attention elsewhere.  There are currently ten remaining countries whose citizens are eligible for TPS.  Of those, six will be terminated over the next 18 months. The Trump Administration has announced the termination of TPS status for Haiti, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Nepal, Honduras and Sudan.  Somalia, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen for now remain in the protected category. USCIS grants TPS to nationals of certain countries who are in the U.S. (legally or illegally) when conditions in that country “temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately.”  Common grounds for granting TPS include highly destructive natural disasters or…

"Judge threatens to hold Sessions in contempt over deportations"

"DC District Judge Emmet Sullivan then blocked the administration from deporting the two plaintiffs while they are fighting for their right to stay in the US -- reportedly excoriating the administration and threatening to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt.

The government raced to comply with the court's order, and by Thursday evening the immigrants had arrived back in Texas after being turned around on the ground in El Salvador.

During court, Sullivan was incensed at the report that one of the plaintiffs was in the process of being deported, according to the ACLU and The Washington Post. Sullivan demanded to know why he shouldn't hold Sessions in contempt, according to the Post and the recollection of lead ACLU attorney Jennifer Chang Newell."

           Al menos diez ríos se han secado en El Salvador por la falta de lluvia       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
El Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales del país centroamericano lleva adelante una campaña para plantar unos cinco millones de árboles en el país. 


Al menos una decena de ríos de la zona oriental de El Salvador se han secado debido a la falta de lluvia en el país centroamericano.

Se trata de ríos que "para esta época del año siempre tienen agua y en este año no presentan caudal", dijo Roberto Cerón, gerente de Hidrología del Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (MARN), ente que ha recibido reportes de la red de observadores locales sobre esos afluentes, reseñó La Prensa Gráfica.

Según Cerón, los registros reflejan disminuciones de hasta 90 % en los caudales de los ríos del oriente, como el caso del río Torola, que tuvo una sequía similar en 2015 y 2016. El caudal de este afluente es de aproximadamente 40 metros cúbicos de agua por segundo, mientras que en julio apenas llegó a 4.

A finales de julio, el MARN informó que el déficit de lluvia en el país continuará en los meses de agosto, septiembre y octubre. Pese a que el noveno mes del año es típicamente el más lluvioso en la mayor parte del territorio salvadoreño, se prevé que en 2018 las lluvias sean 45 % menos del promedio.

Algunas de las razones que el MARN ha señalado como responsables del déficit de lluvias son la probabilidad de que el fenómeno de El Niño se desarrolle "de débil a moderado (menos lluvias)", y un fuerte enfriamiento, el más alto desde 1994, en el océano Atlántico Tropical Norte y el mar Caribe, lo que suele alterar la temporada de lluvias y el desarrollo de los ciclones tropicales.

Plantar 5 millones de árboles

El MARN lleva adelante una campaña para plantar unos cinco millones de árboles en El Salvador con el objetivo de hacer frente al cambio climático, causante del déficit de lluvia en el país.

La campaña es una iniciativa del Consejo Nacional de Sustentabilidad Ambiental y Vulnerabilidad (Conasav), que contempla la plantación de los árboles en las zonas más degradadas del país.

          Giornata internazionale delle popolazioni indigene. Onu: proteggere le donne indigene anche durante le migrazioni (VIDEO)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Nel mondo ci sono circa 370 milioni di “indigeni” che vivono in 90 Paesi e, anche se costituiscono meno del 5% della popolazione mondiale, rappresentano il 15% dei più poveri del mondo. In occasione della Giornata internazionale delle popolazioni indigene(International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples),il segretario generale dell’Onu e António Guterres ha messo in luce i fattori che spingono gli indigeni a migrare «all'interno dei loro Paesi e oltre i confini internazionali nonostante il loro profondo legame spirituale con le loro terre e risorse».

Nel suo messaggio per l’International Day Guterres ha sottolineato che «Alcuni [indigeni] sono soggetti a dislocamento o trasferimento senza il loro consenso libero, preventivo e informato. Altri stanno sfuggendo alla violenza e alla guerra o alle devastazioni dei cambiamenti climatici e al  degrado ambientale e molti migrano alla ricerca di migliori prospettive e occupazione per se stessi e le loro famiglie».

Guterres ha affermato che «Mentre la migrazione è un'opportunità, comporta anche rischi intrinseci», in particolare per «Le condizioni insicure e non igieniche nelle quali in molti finiscono per vivere, specialmente nelle aree urbane. Ad esempio, in America Latina, circa il 40% di tutte le popolazioni indigene vive in aree urbane, con una cifra che alcuni Paesi della regione arriva all'80% in. Molti non hanno accesso ai servizi pubblici e spesso subiscono discriminazioni».

Il segretario generale dell’Onu ha ricordato che «Le donne e le ragazze indigene sperimentano tassi sproporzionatamente elevati di tratta e altre forme di violenza. I giovani indigeni devono affrontare domande complesse riguardo alla loro identità e ai loro valori».

Propria alle persone più vulnerabili dei popoli indigeni, le donne, pensava il direttore generale della Fao, José Graziano da Silva, quando ha invitato i Paesi a unirsi alla campagna per promuovere i diritti delle donne indigene e incoraggiare la loro partecipazione alle discussioni politiche per raggiungere l'obiettivo di sviluppo sostenibile della Fame Zero.

«Chiediamo ai Paesi di impegnarsi per garantire un posto alle donne indigene nei processi decisionali – ha  detto da Silva in un videomessaggio per la Giornata internazionale delle popolazioni indigene  - Senza di loro, non possiamo raggiungere l'obiettivo di Fame Zero e non raggiungeremo uno Sviluppo Sostenibile. Ci sono circa 400 milioni di indigeni nel mondo; circa la metà di loro sono donne. Le popolazioni indigene svolgono un ruolo importante nel porre fine alla fame. I popoli indigeni sono i custodi della biodiversità del mondo. Sono i difensori delle terre e dei territori di cui si prendono cura, per le generazioni future. Tuttavia, troppo spesso le popolazioni indigene non hanno visto rispettati i loro diritti collettivi alle loro terre ancestrali, ai territori e alle risorse».

La Fao ricorda che »Le donne indigene allevano bestiame, coltivano, pescano e cacciano per raccogliere cibo per le loro comunità. Sono anche considerate guardiani di sementi e piante medicinali. Nonostante il loro contributo, le donne indigene non fanno parte delle politiche e dei processi decisionali che influenzano le loro vite. Spesso le politiche di protezione sociale non riescono a includere le loro opinioni e necessità. E, nonostante la loro ricchezza di esperienza, il loro lavoro, le loro conoscenze e i loro bisogni non sono rappresentate nelle statistiche. Tutto questo le rende invisibili»,

Da quando ha adottato nel 2010 la Politica sui Popoli indigeni e tribali, la Fao ha potenziato il suo lavoro con le popolazioni indigene che comprende l’inclusione del Consenso libero, prioritario e informato nei progetti e nei lavori della Fao che fornisce una guida agli operatori sul campo nell'impegno con le popolazioni indigene. La Fao sostiene anche la promozione e la conservazione dei sistemi alimentari indigeni e l'emancipazione delle donne e dei giovani indigeni, anche attraverso le Scuole di leadership delle donne indigene in Asia e America Latina. Da maggio 2015, oltre 100 donne indigene sono state formate per diventare promotrici dei diritti umani, della sicurezza alimentare e della nutrizione in Bolivia, Perù, India, Filippine, Panama, El Salvador e Paraguay.

Per i popoli indigeni i cui territori sono divisi da confini internazionali, Guterres  ha chiesto che ha chiesto una maggiore cooperazione inter-frontaliera  «In modo che la loro identità, le loro occupazioni e le loro pratiche tradizionali possano essere salvaguardate».

Anche Audrey Azoulay, direttrice  generale dell’Unesco,  si è concentrata sulle migrazioni, spiegando che «La migrazione influenza il modo di vivere di molte popolazioni indigene, siano esse società pastorali nomadi, o popoli di cacciatori-raccoglitori che percorrono diverse centinaia di chilometri, al fine di beneficiare delle risorse uniche del loro ecosistema e di preservare un delicato equilibrio. Tuttavia, le popolazioni indigene sono ora sempre più esposte alle migrazioni forzate, che sono spesso il risultato di disastri ambientali o conflitti sociali e politici. Mentre sono cacciati dai loro territori, i popoli indigeni vedono il loro stile di vita e le loro culture disintegrarsi e svanire, spesso senza alcuna prospettiva di ritornare».

Riferendosi al Global Compact per la migrazione, che gli Stati membri dell’Onu si sono impegnati ad adottare entro la fine dell'anno, Guterres è convinto che «Stabilirà un quadro internazionale per la cooperazione regionale e globale e fornirà una piattaforma per massimizzare i benefici della migrazione e del sostegno ai  gruppi di migranti vulnerabili, compresi i popoli indigeni». Poi ha chiesto  la piena attuazione della Dichiarazione delle Nazioni Unite sui diritti dei popoli indigeni , «compresi i diritti all'autodeterminazione e alle terre, territori e risorse tradizionali» e ha concluso: «E’ essenziale proteggere i diritti e le identità delle popolazioni indigene, E, ovunque vivano, facciamo in modo che le popolazioni indigene godano del riconoscimento per i loro contributi e dell'opportunità di prosperare e prosperare in pace su un pianeta sano».

L'articolo Giornata internazionale delle popolazioni indigene. Onu: proteggere le donne indigene anche durante le migrazioni (VIDEO) sembra essere il primo su Greenreport: economia ecologica e sviluppo sostenibile.

"Turn the plane around"

by Tom Sullivan

The Trump administration's rush to deport as many immigrants as possible as swiftly as possible met with a swift kick from a federal judge Thursday (NPR):

A federal judge in Washington, D.C., has threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in contempt of court if they fail to return to the U.S. a mother and daughter seeking asylum. The immigrants were deported ahead of a scheduled hearing with the court on Thursday.

A transcript of Thursday's hearing shows U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan angry after being told the asylum-seekers had been deported and were on a plane out of the U.S. even while a government attorney was telling him they wouldn't be deported before midnight.

"This is pretty outrageous," Sullivan said, "Somebody in pursuit of justice in a United States court is just — is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?"
During a court recess, ACLU lawyers for a woman known in court filings as Carmen received word the woman and her child had already been placed on plane to El Salvador.

“I’m not happy about this at all,” Sullivan continued. “This is not acceptable.” Sullivan issued an order blocking the removal of eight more immigrants from the same lawsuit and ordered federal officials to “turn the plane around,” the Washington Post reports:
“In compliance with the court’s order, upon arrival in El Salvador, the plaintiffs did not disembark and were promptly returned to the United States,” a U.S. Department of Homeland Security official said Thursday evening.

Eunice Lee, who is co-counsel for the plaintiffs in the case and co-legal director at the University of California at Hastings’s Center for Gender and Refugee Studies, said: “It must have been absolutely terrifying for them to think they would be returning to a country where they raised very credible claims of persecution and death. It’s outrageous to me that while we were working around the clock, filing briefings for this case’s early morning hearing, that people in the government were actively arranging for Carmen’s deportation.”
The ACLU issued a statement on the proceedings:
Our clients on that deportation flight, Carmen* and her daughter, fled El Salvador to escape two decades of horrific sexual abuse by her husband and death threats from a violent gang. Carmen was repeatedly raped, stalked, and threatened with death by her abusive husband, even when they were living apart. In June 2018, she and her daughter escaped, seeking asylum in the United States. Despite asylum officers finding that their accounts were truthful, they were ultimately denied them asylum protection because they did not have a “credible fear of persecution.”

This disconnect is the direct result of new policies issued by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that wrongly instruct asylum officers to deny whole categories of asylum claims, specifically gutting protections for immigrants fleeing domestic violence and gang brutality.

Sessions has now characterized these types of persecution as insufficient to invoke asylum protections, despite decades of settled domestic and international law which recognize gender-based persecution as a basis for asylum. Federal courts have also recognized asylum claims in a variety of circumstances involving gang brutality.
Seeking asylum is not a crime. It is protected under U.S. and international law. From the introduction to the CONVENTION RELATING TO THE STATUS OF REFUGEES:
The Convention further stipulates that, subject to specific exceptions, refugees should not be penalized for their illegal entry or stay. This recognizes that the seeking of asylum can require refugees to breach immigration rules. Prohibited penalties might include being charged with immigration or criminal offences relating to the seeking of asylum, or being arbitrarily detained purely on the basis of seeking asylum. Importantly, the Convention contains various safeguards against the expulsion of refugees. The principle of nonrefoulement is so fundamental that no reservations or derogations may be made to it. It provides that no one shall expel or return (“refouler”) a refugee against his or her will, in any manner whatsoever, to a territory where he or she fears threats to life or freedom.
Not that we bother with niceties like adhering to international law anymore. (Or to any other kind of law, for that matter.)

Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday outlined the Trump administration's plan to create a "Space Force" as a sixth branch of the military as soon as 2020. It would be the first new branch of the military since the Air Force was created after World War II. President Trump in June ordered the Pentagon to establish the force to ensure U.S. dominance in space, calling it "so important" and explaining that it would take over space-related duties from the Air Force. Pence said the Space Force will help the U.S. "meet the emerging threats on this new battlefield" with dedicated space technology experts and defense systems. The White House reportedly wants to get the new department off the ground by 2020, but is expected to face opposition from Congress. [The Washington Post]

2.

Kansas' too-close-to-call Republican primary for governor got even tighter on Thursday, with Secretary of State Kris Kobach's 191-vote lead over incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer shrinking to 121 out of 311,000 ballots cast. The tally was adjusted as two counties reported that their counts differed from what Kobach's office put on its website. Colyer said some clerks had received incorrect information on what ballots to count, and he bitterly called on Kobach to recuse himself. Kobach said he would step aside from overseeing the count. Kobach, an immigration and voter I.D. hardliner who got a late endorsement from President Trump, told CNN his role in the process was largely symbolic, but that he would be "happy" to recuse himself if that's what his opponent wanted.

A federal judge on Thursday threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of court after the Justice Department tried to deport a mother and daughter in the middle of their appeal. "This is pretty outrageous," U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan said after learning of the removal. "That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?" Sullivan halted the deportation and ordered the Justice Department to "turn the plane around." An administration official told CBS News that the woman and her daughter never got off the plane in El Salvador before it returned to Texas. The woman is a plaintiff in a lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union filed this week challenging Sessions' decision to refuse asylum based on claims by people seeking refuge from domestic and gang violence. [The Washington Post, CBS News]

4.

U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III, who has repeatedly berated prosecutors in Paul Manafort's trial, on Thursday backed down from one such incident after one of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's deputies filed a motion complaining that Ellis had unfairly scolded them, potentially giving the jury the false impression that prosecutors had acted improperly. "This prejudice should be cured," prosecutor Andrew Weissman wrote. Ellis had criticized prosecutors for letting a witness, IRS agent Michael Welsh, sit in the courtroom before testifying, although Mueller's team said Ellis had granted permission earlier for the witness to be there. Ellis said he was "probably wrong" and instructed the jury to disregard his remarks. [The Washington Post, Fox News]

The Army has halted discharges of immigrant recruits who enlisted with the understanding they would get a path to citizenship, The Associated Press reported Thursday, citing a memo. "Effective immediately, you will suspend processing of all involuntary separation actions," said the July 20 memo, signed by Acting Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs Marshall Williams. The disclosure came one month after the AP reported that dozens of men and women who enlisted under the special immigrant program were being discharged or facing canceled contracts. The Army also reversed the discharge of one reservist, Lucas Calixto of Brazil, after he sued. [The Associated Press]

6.

Southern California prosecutors on Thursday charged a suspect, 51-year-old Forrest Gordon Clark, with arson and other offenses for allegedly starting the Holy Fire, which has burned more than 10,000 acres in Orange and Riverside counties. The blaze has damaged or destroyed at least 14 structures and forced 20,000 people to evacuate. It was just 5 percent contained as of Thursday. Clark, who was arrested Tuesday, reportedly sent an email last week saying, "This place will burn." He faces several felony charges that could result in a maximum sentence of life in prison. His bail was set at $1 million. The Holy Fire is one of 18 wildfires raging in the state, including the Mendocino Complex fire, the largest in the state's history. That blaze has burned more than 300,000 acres in Northern California. [USA Today]

7.

Tennessee on Thursday carried out the execution of Billy Ray Irick for the 1985 rape and murder of a 7-year-old girl. It was the first time the state had carried out the death penalty since December 2009. The Supreme Court denied Irick's request for a stay hours before the execution. Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued a forceful dissent, saying that the state's drug protocol for lethal injection, which includes the controversial sedative midazolam, results in "torturous pain." Irick was convicted in 1986 for the rape and murder of a Knoxville girl he was babysitting, 7-year-old Paula Dyer. Asked if he had any last words before the lethal injection, Irick said: "I just want to say I'm really sorry and that, that's it." [CBS News]

8.

First lady Melania Trump's parents, both Slovenian immigrants, were sworn in as U.S. citizens in New York on Thursday. They had been in the country as legal permanent residents with green cards. They were eligible for residency and to apply for citizenship because their daughter, also an immigrant, had citizenship. Many immigrants get green cards and eventually citizenship through links to relatives who are citizens, but President Trump has vowed to roll back such family-based immigration, which he calls "chain migration." Trump's paternal grandfather and mother got into the U.S. the same way. They migrated from Germany and Scotland, respectively, to join siblings already in the U.S. [USA Today]

Tesla shares dropped by 4.8 percent on Thursday, giving back the gains from a rally sparked two days earlier when CEO Elon Musk announced that he was considering taking the electric-car maker private. The stock fell to $352.45, far below the $420 mark at which Musk said shareholders would be bought out, as investors questioned whether Musk could pull it off. Musk sent the stock soaring 11 percent higher on Tuesday after claiming he had "funding secured" at a price that would value the company at $82 billion. Since then, he has not provided any evidence he had it lined up. People with knowledge of 15 financial institutions and technology firms said they knew of no financing lined up to execute Musk's proposal. Tesla's board is seeking more information on Musk's plan.

A Chilean prosecutor said Thursday that officials had raided the office of the bishop to the armed services as part of a broader investigation into possible cover-ups by Roman Catholic Church officials of sexual abuse claims against priests in Chile. Provincial prosecutor Emiliano Arias said the search of Santiago Silva's office was done under a court order with authorization by the defense minister and commander in chief of the armed forces. Silva also is president of the Chilean bishops' conference. Investigators, accompanied by military officials, seized documents linked to 20 years of sexual abuse complaints sent to Silva and his predecessor, former bishop Juan Barros. Seven other offices of high-ranking church figures also have been searched for evidence. [Reuters]

          La FIFA confirma la inhabilitación de dos años al técnico hondureño Maradiaga      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

PARIS, Francia. La Comisión de Apelación de la FIFA rechazó el recurso de Ramón Maradiaga, exseleccionador de El Salvador, y confirmó la inhabilitación de dos años al técnico hondureño para ejercer actividades relacionadas con el fútbol, informó el jueves la organización en un comunicado.

Maradiaga fue inhabilitado el 2 de mayo por su implicación en un intento de manipulación de partidos, denunciado por futbolistas de la selección de El Salvador.

“Tras analizar y tener en cuenta todas las circunstancias del caso, la Comisión de Apelación estimó que la conducta de Maradiaga constituyó una violación del art. 21 (Cohecho y corrupción) y el art. 18 (Obligación de denunciar, cooperar y rendir cuentas) del Código Ético de la FIFA de 2012”, señaló la FIFA.

La comisión se mostró conforme con los principios y argumentos del órgano de decisión de la Comisión de Ética para calcular la sanción, y dictaminó que la inhabilitación de dos años así como la multa de 20.000 francos suizos impuesta a Maradiaga eran adecuadas.

El procedimiento contra Maradiaga empezó el 18 de julio cuando la Comisión de Integridad decidió investigar la acusación de los futbolistas salvadoreños, que afirmaron públicamente que una persona les ofreció dinero por alterar el resultado del partido contra Canadá.

Las pesquisas del órgano de la FIFA concluyeron que el exseleccionador salvadoreño “permitió y no dio parte de la reunión mantenida por los jugadores y esa tercera persona”, por lo que fue considerado culpable de infringir el Código Ético de la organización mundial.

Hug by Nefesch - DVD

HUG is the new "Thumbs up, Go like this" opener taken to a whole new level of visual madness.

"HUG is a DVD with a collection of 6 effects. 5 of these effects are new, fresh and astonishing body illusions that you can perform anytime anywhere. In February 2008 I decided to perform HUG for some reporters of a National Newspaper of my native country (El Salvador) The Journalists were very impressed and made a nice article about me; and as a result of my HUG performance they gave me a "title", a title I had never expected to get, this "title" was something that I had never claimed to be, but they gave me that title because that was what they thought of me after seeing my performance; they called me: "An Expert in Contortion". Nowadays, I use HUG as the opener for my Show. The DVD also includes a mentalism routine with the ploy "Hugging a person" This mentalism Routine is the one I use as a link between my opener and the rest of my mentalism show."
- Nefesch

The 5 Body illusions are totally impromptu, easy to do and they will look as if you can penetrate parts of your body through others parts of your body in a very visual way. The mentalism routine requires a fast and easy set up and it plays huge.

Effects included:

1) Arms Through Body
2) Hands Through Neck
3) Sleeveless Arm Twist
4) Arms Through leg (3 Variations Included)
5) A Jacket Levitation
6) A bonus Mentalism HUG Routine

"Destined to become a classic and a staple of many acts!"
- Cameron Francis

"Nefesch's HUG fills me with giddy delight! It's so fun and clever. A brand new interactive puzzler that's an instant classic!"
-Dan Harlan

"This is absolute killer. It's very rare that these kind of gems are offered to the community...Guaranteed to become a classic in magic."
- Peter Eggink

"Nefesch created an amazing yet practical body illusion. When you thought they invented it all... He strikes again with an original and practical concept! Amazing!"
- Guy Bavli

"Hug is one of those offbeat effects that many entertainers will start using straight away as a modern, more deceptive alternative to the much overused old version. You can involve a whole audience, or a single person with no prep, no set up and nothing required. What more could you want. It's a great piece to have in the back of your mind for when you just need to do 'something' to impress people as you can go straight in to HUG with a moment's notice and still blow people away with a visual penetration of your own body."
- Ken Dyne (Mentalist and HUG Fan)

"I can see every magician around the world performing these illusions for generations. This will make history."
- Titanas

"Hug is what I would call the perfect anytime, anywhere, effect. It is visual and stunning, and creates that magical moment of astonishment without cards or coins, just you and them. Hug will have them thinking for a very long time!"
- Justin Miller

"This will definitely freak people out"
- Dan Hause

"I was impressed with what you've developed with HUG, a visually stunning piece of any time, any place magic. And, the fact that it can involve the entire audience certainly makes it a rare effect in the world of magic. Well done!"
- Michael Grandinetti

"A natural, and logical step in an old gag that takes it and kicks up to date sharply and quickly! You WILL perform this."
- Alan Rorison

"Hug is the perfect intro to any show! A fun and ideal way to break the ice and greet your audience. A beautiful set up for the rest of the show!"

          FERROCARRIL DE ANCON: Recuerdos del pasado      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Ubicado al norte de Lima se encuentra el balneario de Ancón, el point de moda en épocas pretéritas y que estaba conectado a la capital por ferrocarril, pero el desarrollo del automovilismo y la construcción de la Panamericana Norte acabo con su época de esplendor y el tren pasó a mejor vida. Como parte de una línea férrea que llegaba hasta Huacho, presto importantes servicios de carga y pasajeros durante su existencia, el cual se inició en 1867 como el proyecto del ferrocarril Lima-Huacho. La primera etapa puesta en funcionamiento a comienzos de 1870 fue la sección Lima-Ancón de 42 km y trocha ancha de 1.435 m. A finales de ese mismo año se inauguró la sección Ancón-Chancay, siguiendo el trazo del peligroso tramo llamado Pasamayo. En 1881, las tropas chilenas al mando del infame Patricio Lynch, destruyeron la vía férrea en la sección Ancón-Chancay, la cual fue reconstruida en 1884 cuando los invasores abandonaron el país y que funciono hasta el año 1930, siendo la ruta abandonada por causa del viento, que arenaba constantemente la zona de tránsito, en el Serpentín de Pasamayo y parte de la Variante, lo cual resultaba muy costoso su mantenimiento. En cambio, la sección Lima-Ancón, no fue afectada y quedó a partir de 1890 a cargo de la Peruvian como un ramal del FFCC Central. En Ancón tenía un desvío hasta Polvorín de 7 km abierto en 1953. Estaba unido en Lima al ferrocarril Central mediante un puente llamado Puente La Palma, que cruzaba en diagonal sobre el río Rímac y lo conectaba con la estación de La Palma y Desamparados. Originalmente antes de la guerra, la estación estaba en la margen derecha del Rímac entre las calles Tajamar y Cabezas (hoy Virú), a la que se llegaba pasando un puente llamado La Palma desde el jirón Rufino Torrico. La línea seguía casi el trazo de la actual autopista a Ancón. Quedó abandonada en 1964 cuando la Peruvian Corporation suspendió definitivamente el tráfico. Los únicos vestigios que quedan aun en nuestros días, son la Vieja Estación de Ancón, al lado de la Plaza de Armas del balneario y un túnel que cruza debajo de la Carretera Panamericana Norte a la altura del Recreo Vacacional Las Tres Ruedas, pero el resto como estaciones de La Palma, Pilares, Puente y las líneas férreas desaparecieron definitivamente. Las estaciones y paraderos de la sección Lima-Ancón eran: Viterbo, Desamparados, La Palma, Inca, Fray Martín de Porres, Nampla, Repartición, Infantas, Pro, Collique, Gallinazo, Tambo Inga, Puente Piedra, Zapallal, Arenal, Desvío Polvorín y Ancón. Esta sección en sus últimos años sólo funcionaba en temporada de verano del 1 de diciembre al 15 de abril, hasta su definitiva desaparición en 1964, cuando se cerró por su crisis financiera y la decisión política del corrupto gobierno de Belaúnde Terry, para favorecer intereses particulares, cerrándose de esta manera un capitulo histórico de esta tan importante vía férrea para Lima. Que distinta habría sido su historia si en vez de cerrarlo arbitrariamente, hubiese sido modernizado y hoy podría haberse interconectado con el Metro de Lima, del cual si bien la línea 2 del Callao a Santa Anita esta en plena construcción, lamentablemente no esta previsto en los planes de Pro Inversión llegar en el futuro hasta Ancón y ello es incomprensible dada la gran cantidad de población que reside en el llamado Cono Norte de Lima que podría movilizarse rápidamente y a un menor costo evitando el actual embotellamiento que se ve a todas horas en las avenidas que se dirigen al centro de la ciudad. Como recordareis, durante sus promesas de campaña, el conocido lobbysta y Traidor a la Patria Pedro Pablo Kuczynski ofreció la construcción de un Tren de Cercanías de Barranca a Ica, pero tras su ignominiosa renuncia evitando ser deshonrosamente destituido por el Congreso acusado de graves casos de corrupción, se creyó que el proyecto pasaría al olvido, mas no fue así ya que su sucesor Martín Vizcarra en su reciente Mensaje a la Nación por Fiestas Patrias se ofreció a seguir adelante con la idea, que demandará una inversión de S/ 10,520 millones, para lo cual anunció que los inversionistas podrán presentar sus propuestas para el desarrollo conjunto de esta iniciativa pública, el cual se espera que este en funcionamiento para el 2021. Este tren beneficiará a las localidades situadas a lo largo del eje, el cual se tiene previsto que se conecte con la línea 1 del Metro de Lima (que ya está en funcionamiento) para continuar su ruta hacia Ica por Villa El Salvador según el video adjunto, ignorando olímpicamente a Ancón, que quedaría fuera una vez mas, cuando lo lógico hubiese sido que siguiera la ruta del antiguo ferrocarril - que es la Panamericana Norte - para seguir por Evitamiento y continuar por la Panamericana Sur, beneficiando a mucha mas gente ¿no os parece? ¿Hasta cuando ese desinterés por parte de las autoridades? :(

          'Opportunity' Drove This DACA Recipient To Leave El Salvador, Enter U.S. Illegally       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Marlon Portillo came to the U.S. as an unaccompanied minor from El Salvador 12 years ago, a 25-day journey included an expensive and dangerous border crossing.

“I was 15 years old and I always wanted a higher education,” Portillo says. “That was the main reason why I moved here.”

Here & Now‘s Robin Young talks with Portillo, who’s gone on to attend school and work in Boston area, about his experience of entering the U.S. illegally and the ongoing debate about immigration issues.

Interview Highlights

On the journey from El Salvador

“For me it took 25 days. It was a long journey. It was very dramatic, hard. But I did it.

“First of all I was alone. So many days, you know. Sometimes in cars, sometimes in buses, sometimes walking. Sometimes there [was] not enough food or enough water.”

On if he ever thought he should go back

“There was one moment crossing Mexico. My friends, they were caught by the authorities from Mexico. I was the only one who escaped. That was traumatic because I was alone, I got lost, I had no friends.

“But if I’d [gone] back, it would’ve been way more difficult to come back again.”

On what it felt like to cross the border illegally

“For me, now I understand that better. I feel like I did wrongly, the wrong way. But when I was there, 15 [years old], I didn’t know much about it. Obviously, for people like me, in my country, it’s very difficult to get a visa. That is like a privilege only for the rich people, for the politicians.”

On being a DACA recipient

“It opened a window for me. If you don’t have Social Security, if you don’t have a green card to go to college, it’s way more expensive. It’s like three times more expensive. So when I got my DACA, I got a work permit, I got my Social Security, so that window opened for me.

“Obviously I am very worried about anything happening. If DACA ends, my situation will get a little difficult. I am confident something beneficial will happen, but if it doesn’t happen I am ready for anything. I already fight throughout my life. So many hard situations, hard challenges. I don’t want to stop here.”

On those who oppose people entering the U.S. illegally like he did

“We’re talking here about people, human beings, people willing to do anything to put food on their table, the family table. People are going to do anything in order to survive because some cases, the people are running away, trying to save their own life. Facing violence, facing unemployment, just many issues.”

“In order to understand this point, you also need to go to the root of the issue. Poverty, violence, unemployment, social conflict.”

          Here Are 4 People Who Join Omarosa in Alleging That Donald Trump Made Racist Remarks on 'The Apprentice'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The president faces a slew of allegations about horrifying racist language.

In her soon-to-be-released book “Unhinged,” Omarosa Manigault Newman speaks candidly about her former boss, President Donald Trump—alleging that claims he used racial slurs when he was on the hit reality show “The Apprentice” are absolutely true. Newman has asserted that although she never heard Trump use the n-word herself, she knows for a fact that “Apprentice” tapes of him using it “multiple times” exist. According to Newman, “three sources in three separate conversations” alleged that during his years on “The Apprentice,” Trump “hadn’t just dropped a single n-word bomb. He’d said it multiple times throughout the show’s taping during off-camera outtakes, particularly during the first season of ‘The Apprentice.’” And Newman is not alone in alleging that Trump wasn’t shy about making racist remarks during his years on “The Apprentice,” which debuted in 2004.  

Here are four others who allege that Trump said racist things during his years on “The Apprentice.”

1. Bill Pruitt

Bill Pruitt, who worked on the first two seasons of “The Apprentice,” has alleged that Trump made bigoted comments about “African-Americans, Jewish people, all of the above” when he was on “The Apprentice.” In 2016, when Trump was campaigning for president and the infamous “Access Hollywood” recording from 2015 surfaced, he was criticized for his sexist “grab them by the pussy” comments. But according to Pruitt, Trump’s “Access Hollywood” comments pale in comparison to things he said on “The Apprentice”—and on October 8, 2016, Pruitt tweeted that as the producer of “The Apprentice’s” first two seasons, “I assure you: when it comes to the #trumptapes there are far worse.” For legal reasons, however, Pruitt could not be any more specific.

2. Chris Nee

In 2016, screenwriter/producer Chris Nee tweeted that when she was working on “The Apprentice,” head producer Mark Burnett had her sign a contract stating that she would have to pay $5 million if she ever released footage of the show without Burnett’s permission. And according to Nee, that footage included Trump using the n-word to describe blacks. In 2016, Nee addressed the “far worse” that Pruitt was referring to, tweeting, “Hearing from producers/crew N word is the ‘much worse.’”

3. Tom Arnold

Actor Tom Arnold has alleged that he has outtakes of Trump using racial slurs when he was on “The Apprentice.” Interviewed by KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson in 2016, Arnold alleged that when Trump used those slurs during his “Apprentice” days, “He wasn’t going to be president of the United States. It was him sitting in that chair saying the n-word, saying the c-word, calling his son a retard, just being so mean to his own children.” And according to Arnold, Trump said “every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever” in the outtakes.

4. Randal D. Pinkett

After President Trump described Haiti, El Salvador and some countries in Africa as “shithole countries” and said he would much prefer to have immigrants from Norway instead, Randal D. Pinkett—one of the African-American stars of “The Apprentice”—said of Trump, “There’s no question in my mind: he’s a racist.” And Pinkett felt that way when he was on “The Apprentice” in the mid-2000s. In 2016, the Hollywood Report quoted Pinkett as saying, “After Donald declared me the winner and said, ‘Randal, you’re hired,’ he asked me a question that he had never asked any contestant prior and never asked of any contestant after me. He asked me if I wanted to share a title with the white runner-up. The better question is: why did Donald ask me to share? And my only answer is that he did not want to have an African-American have a clear, clean, full victory.”

La Prensa

San Salvador, El Salvador.

La Fiscalía General de la República (FGR) de El Salvador comenzó hoy el proceso de extinción de dominio de los bienes del expresidente Elías Antonio Saca (2004-2009), quien enfrenta un "juicio abreviado" por la malversación de 300 millones de dólares de fondos públicos.

El proceso del Ministerio Público comenzó en la casa del exmandatario, en el cantón El Carmen en las faldas del volcán de San Salvador, valorada en más de 8 millones de dólares y que fue comprada con fondos públicos, informó el fiscal general, Douglas Meléndez, quien se hizo presente en el lugar para verificar el operativo.

"Haré todo lo posible para que este inmueble (casa de Saca) sirva de hospital para adultos mayores o para un centro infantil", manifestó a la prensa el fiscal.

LEA: Saca confiesa desvío de más de 300 millones de dólaresMeléndez explicó que el jueves el Juzgado Especializado de Extinción de Dominio "avaló la incautación de bienes del exmandatario" e indicó que el proceso se realiza simultáneamente en diferentes lugares del país centroamericano, en los que Saca tiene inmuebles y bienes.

Los bienes que la Fiscalía busca que pasen a dominio del Estado, según lo detalló el jefe del Ministerio Público, son 35 inmuebles, 46 vehículos, 36 productos financieros, 86 frecuencias radiales, 16 distintivos o marcas comerciales.

Además de once locales ubicados en los departamentos de San Salvador, San Miguel (este), Sonsonate (oeste), Usulután (sudeste), Ahuachapán (oeste), La Libertad (centro) y La Unión (este).

Meléndez indicó que el "conjunto" de inmuebles incautados "podría" estar valorado entre 30 y 40 millones de dólares.

Saca confesó el jueves, durante un "juicio abreviado", la forma en la que organizó y ejecutó el desvío y lavado de más de 300 millones de dólares del presupuesto estatal, y de los que más de 50 millones fueron a parar a su patrimonio y al de sus allegados.

La confesión de Saca forma parte de un trato alcanzado con la Fiscalía, con el que se espera evite la pena máxima de hasta 30 años de prisión por una de diez años de cárcel en un "juicio abreviado", beneficio judicial al que se acogieron cinco de sus seis excolaboradores procesados.

Se trata de los exsecretarios Privado, de Comunicaciones y de Juventud Elmer Charlaix, Julio Rank y César Funes, respectivamente, y del ex gerente financiero de la Presidencia Francisco Rodríguez Arteaga.

Saca es el primer expresidente de la democracia salvadoreña en enfrentar un juicio por delitos de corrupción, dado que su predecesor en el Ejecutivo, Francisco Flores, fue enviado a esta etapa en 2015, pero falleció antes de que se instalara.

But, life comes at you fast. So grab a cup of coffee and settle in for this quick and dirty guide to stories you might’ve been sleeping on (like, literally. It’s early.)

Kansas Secretary Of State Kris Kobach's Lead In GOP Governor Primary Cut In Half After Vote Mistake

A spokesman for Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer's reelection campaign revealed on Thursday that 100 votes for Colyer were found in a western county, meaning that his opponent, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, is currently only 91 votes ahead in the GOP primary. According to the clerk of the county the votes were found in, Shelly Harms, the secretary of state's office is responsible for the error. She told the Kansas City Star that she submitted 522 votes for Colyer, but the vote total reported for the county was initially 422. 

Bryan Caskey, the director of elections who works with Kobach, told the Star that "there was a discrepancy." His office plans to update the primary's results online on Friday, including mail-in ballots for the first time. Thousands of provisional ballots have yet to be counted. "[The] discovery of 100 votes for Gov. Colyer that had not previously been counted highlight the need to thoroughly check and double check each vote and to make sure that every legitimate vote is counted in this race," Colyer's spokesman Kendall Marr said

After Colyer called on Kobach to recuse himself from the vote tally process, Kobach said on Thursday night that he plans to do just that. He hasn't officially done so yet, though. 

A Judge Threatened To Hold Jeff Sessions In Contempt Of Court While Halting A Deportation

During a court hearing in which the American Civil Liberties Union was fighting the deportation of two asylum seekers, a federal judge learned that they were already on a plane to El Salvador after being deported. DC District Judge Emmet Sullivan erupted at both the Trump administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, calling the deportation "outrageous," according to The Washington Post. "That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?"

Sullivan not only halted the deportation, but he also called the Justice Department demanding the government turn the plane around and bring the two back, CNN reported. Then, he threatened to hold Sessions in contempt of court. Sullivan also ordered that if the two being deported did not return to the U.S., along with Sessions, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Lee Francis Cissna and Executive Office for Immigration Review Director James McHenry would all have to appear in court and explain why they should not be held in contempt. 

Sessions said in June that people seeking asylum cannot cite fleeing domestic and gang violence as reasons for doing so. The ACLU was challenging that on Thursday on behalf of the two deported and ten other plaintiffs. 

Police Arrested A Suspect Linked To One Of California's Current Wildfires

51-year-old Forrest Gordon Clark was arrested for allegedly starting what's been dubbed the "Holy Fire" in California on Thursday. Since Monday, the blaze has forced the evacuation of 20,000 residents and has so far destroyed a dozen structures, according to fire authorities. Just two weeks ago, Clark reportedly sent a text to a volunteer fire chief that said, "The place is going to burn."

The suspect has been on Holy Jim Volunteer Fire Department Chief Mike Milligan's radar for a long time, though. "I've been trying for years to get someone to pay attention and nobody has really had the opportunity to do that until now," Milligan said, adding that he's known about Clark being dangerous for decades. He's currently being held in jail on a $1 million bond, with charges of "aggravated arson, arson of inhabited property, arson of forest, criminal threats, two counts of resisting and deterring an executive officer, and arson burning multiple structures," CNN reported. 

The Holy Fire is just one of three that are currently burning across California. It's only 5 percent contained, schools are closed in multiple counties, and excessive heat warnings continue to be issued.

          Más de ocho millones de dólares vale mansión que compró Saca con el desvío de fondos      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

San Salvador, El Salvador.

La Fiscalía General de la República (FGR) de El Salvador comenzó hoy el proceso de extinción de dominio de los bienes del expresidente Elías Antonio Saca (2004-2009), quien enfrenta un "juicio abreviado" por la malversación de 300 millones de dólares de fondos públicos.

El proceso del Ministerio Público comenzó en la casa del exmandatario, en el cantón El Carmen en las faldas del volcán de San Salvador, valorada en más de 8 millones de dólares y que fue comprada con fondos públicos, informó el fiscal general, Douglas Meléndez, quien se hizo presente en el lugar para verificar el operativo.

"Haré todo lo posible para que este inmueble (casa de Saca) sirva de hospital para adultos mayores o para un centro infantil", manifestó a la prensa el fiscal.

LEA: Saca confiesa desvío de más de 300 millones de dólaresMeléndez explicó que el jueves el Juzgado Especializado de Extinción de Dominio "avaló la incautación de bienes del exmandatario" e indicó que el proceso se realiza simultáneamente en diferentes lugares del país centroamericano, en los que Saca tiene inmuebles y bienes.

Los bienes que la Fiscalía busca que pasen a dominio del Estado, según lo detalló el jefe del Ministerio Público, son 35 inmuebles, 46 vehículos, 36 productos financieros, 86 frecuencias radiales, 16 distintivos o marcas comerciales.

Además de once locales ubicados en los departamentos de San Salvador, San Miguel (este), Sonsonate (oeste), Usulután (sudeste), Ahuachapán (oeste), La Libertad (centro) y La Unión (este).

Meléndez indicó que el "conjunto" de inmuebles incautados "podría" estar valorado entre 30 y 40 millones de dólares.

Saca confesó el jueves, durante un "juicio abreviado", la forma en la que organizó y ejecutó el desvío y lavado de más de 300 millones de dólares del presupuesto estatal, y de los que más de 50 millones fueron a parar a su patrimonio y al de sus allegados.

La confesión de Saca forma parte de un trato alcanzado con la Fiscalía, con el que se espera evite la pena máxima de hasta 30 años de prisión por una de diez años de cárcel en un "juicio abreviado", beneficio judicial al que se acogieron cinco de sus seis excolaboradores procesados.

Se trata de los exsecretarios Privado, de Comunicaciones y de Juventud Elmer Charlaix, Julio Rank y César Funes, respectivamente, y del ex gerente financiero de la Presidencia Francisco Rodríguez Arteaga.

Saca es el primer expresidente de la democracia salvadoreña en enfrentar un juicio por delitos de corrupción, dado que su predecesor en el Ejecutivo, Francisco Flores, fue enviado a esta etapa en 2015, pero falleció antes de que se instalara.

US migrants: Judge orders deportation plane turnaround – BBC News

A federal judge has ordered a mother and her daughter be flown back to the United States, after learning they had been deported mid-appeal.
The two were being represented in a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who said they had fled “extreme sexual and gang violence”.
The judge said it was unacceptable they had been removed during their appeal.
He reportedly also said Attorney General Jeff Sessions could be held in contempt of court for the deportation.
The mother and daughter were part of a case filed by the ACLU and the Centre for Gender and Refugee Studies on behalf of 12 mothers and children who said they had fled violence, but were at risk of deportation.
The government had pledged not to deport anyone in the case before Friday at the earliest, ACLU said.
But ACLU said they learned during Thursday’s emergency hearing that the mother and daughter had already been put on a flight back to El Salvador by US authorities.
Washington DC District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan said that it was unacceptable that people claiming asylum had been removed while lawyers argued their case.
He branded the situation “outrageous” and ordered the pair be returned immediately, according to reports.
An official from the Department of Homeland Security told the Reuters agency that the agency worked to comply with the court’s order.
“Upon arrival in El Salvador, the plaintiffs did not disembark and are currently en route back to the United States,” the department said in an emailed statement.
The mother and daughter are said to have arrived back in Texas, where they were being held, by Thursday night.

Image captionAccording to the ACLU, hundreds of migrant children remain separated from their parents after a policy change
According to the lawsuit, the migrant mother, known under the alias “Carmen”, came to the US with her young daughter after two decades of sexual abuse from her husband and death threats from a local gang in her native El Salvador.
But their case was halted when officers found they did not have a “credible fear of persecution”.
The case comes at a time when US migrant policy remains firmly under the spotlight after it emerged in June that migrant children were being separated from their families at the US border.
The policy led to widespread outrage and condemnation.
Mr Trump signed an executive order seeking to end the policy, but more than 500 children remained apart from their families as of Thursday.
