DOJ: Give Us Two Years to Reunite Families at Border

first_imgThe Trump administration says it needs up to two years to find thousands of children who have been separated from their families at the Mexican border.In a court filing made on Friday, the Justice Department says it will likely take at least one year to review approximately 47,000 cases of unaccompanied children who were taken into government custody between July 1, 2017 and June 25, 2018 — the day before U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw stopped the practice of separating families.The administration plans to work through the list by seeking out traits that are most likely to indicate separation, such as children under the age of 5. It would provide information about separated families to the American Civil Liberties Union on a rolling basis.Lee Gelernt, the ACLU’s lead attorney, says, “We strongly oppose a plan that could take up to two years to locate these families. The government needs to make this a priority.”….In the meantime, the Democrats in Congress must help the Republicans (we need their votes) to end the horrible, costly and foolish loopholes in our Immigration Laws. Once that happens, all will be smooth. We can NEVER allow Open Borders!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 6, 2019 ….it’s powerful common sense Immigration Laws to stop illegals from coming through Mexico into the U.S., and removing them back to their country of origin. Until Mexico cleans up this ridiculous & massive migration, we will be focusing on Border Security, not Ports of Entry….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 6, 2019 On June 26 of last year, Sabraw ordered that more than 2,700 children who were in government care be reunited with their families. However, in January, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department’s internal watchdog announced that thousands more children could have been separated from their families since the summer of 2017.Sabraw said last month that he might hold the government accountable for families that were separated before his June 2018 order. He also asked the government to submit a proposal outlining the next steps. A hearing on that proposal is scheduled for April 16.According to reports, most of the separated children are released to relatives other than their actual parents. The government’s plan aims to reunite the remainder of the separated children with the parents, when possible.center_img We have redeployed 750 agents at the Southern Border’s specific Ports of Entry in order to help with the large scale surge of illegal migrants trying to make their way into the United States. This will cause traffic & commercial delays until such time as Mexico is able to use….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 6, 2019last_img read more

GFF’s Forde and Williams happy over CFU approval

first_imgPRESIDENT of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), Wayne Forde has expressed his delight at the approval by CFU of the Leonora Stadium,for Guyana’s crucial 3rd round Caribbean Cup match against defending Champions, Jamaica.In a Press Release from the Federation,the GFF’s boss expounded on how much a plus it is for the sport.“I think, apart from the venue being available for the Jamaica game, we now have one additional venue in Guyana that is certified for International football, and I think that gives us a second set of options,and it couldn’t have been any timelier… I think Guyana needed to have home court advantage. We all know that Jamaica is a formidable opponent and apart from the advantage that we needed, it has been almost forty years since we last played Jamaica in Guyana”.Also sharing the happy feelings on the ‘Green Light’ for the venue is Operations Manager, Trevor Williams.“We are grateful to be able to have the facility stand scrutiny and reviewed by the CFU. It is very encouraging for us because a lot has been invested in this facility and to know that outside of the National Stadium, we can actually play International football, is good news for Guyana, the Government,and the GFF who has done a lot to encourage the growth and development of the sport. “So we are very happy and I am sure the entire Government will be pleased”.last_img read more

Kevin O’Neill faces new questions

first_img“The 19th Hole” runs Mondays. To comment on this story, email Joey at jrkaufma@usc.edu or comment below. USC athletic director Pat Haden’s rationale for retaining men’s basketball coach Kevin O’Neill, despite a 6-26 record last season, has always been simple: His players go to class, graduate and keep their noses clean.For months, he has reiterated as much.Questions · USC coach Kevin O’Neill is known for running a clean program, but the arrests of two players are making that image blurred. – Luciano Nunez | Daily Trojan“He graduates kids, and the kids don’t get into trouble,” Haden told the Los Angeles Times on March 7.That remains, to a large degree, why O’Neill will return for a fourth season as head of the Trojans’ basketball program. And that’s more than fair. Running a clean program is nothing to scoff at.But that general perception is fading.Last month, junior forward Ari Stewart, who had been sitting out the season because of NCAA transfer rules, was arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Arizona while traveling with the Trojans on a road trip. Charges are still pending after the case was referred to the Maricopa County attorney’s office last week.Next season, Stewart will likely start for USC, along with incoming junior college transfer guard J.T. Terrell, who carries his own baggage, so to speak.Terrell left Wake Forest in September after he was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated.Neither charge is unheard of in today’s world of big-time college basketball, sure. Neither is exactly shocking.But remember this is one of the primary reasons O’Neill is back: He runs a clean program and his players stay out of trouble. Yet, two players, with arrest records, could start for the Trojans when the season tips off come November. And that’s fine, but they better win. They can’t afford to wallow in mediocrity much longer.The saving grace for O’Neill, who holds a rather pedestrian 41-55 mark in three seasons with USC, has been two-fold: He’s managed a mess in the wake of NCAA sanctions stemming from improper benefits former guard O.J. Mayo received while with the program in 2008, and his players have been high-character guys.But Stewart and Terrell’s pasts devalue that latter notion and frustrate a growingly apathetic fanbase. Perhaps more than anything, they increase pressure on O’Neill to win in his fourth season, pressure that will only grow as the season draws nearer.O’Neill said he expects things to turn around. He said USC will be markedly better in 2013, that the team’s performance from last season was, by and large, an anomaly.“That will be our goal — To be in the NCAA tournament — and I think we have a chance,” O’Neill said about his team’s prospects following its season-ending 55-40 loss to UCLA in the Pac-12 tournament.Haden has uttered similar statements.After a six-win season, it’d be pretty tough not to recognize USC has to be better.Coaches don’t typically get the benefit of the doubt forever. Eventually they have to win.At some point, if O’Neill hopes to keep his job in the coming seasons, USC has to get back to the Big Dance. It can’t afford not to. He recognizes that. After all, USC loses money when it comes to basketball.It suffered losses of $464,000 and $1.1 million, during the 2010-2011 and 2009-2010 seasons, respectively, according to the NCAA Equity in Athletics report. Data is not available for its most recent season.Interest among alumni and students is waning too. USC averaged just 3,970 fans at the Galen Center last season — the lowest in the six-year history of the venue. All signs indicate general indifference among fans.It all means one thing: USC can’t afford to slip up when it comes to graduation rates and run-ins with the law. There is little room left for error for O’Neill at this point. Brushes with the law are generally bad. That goes without saying for the most part. But they’re even worse when a program is coming off a school record for losses in a single season. It’s one thing to lose. It’s another thing to lose and have players arrested on drug charges in the middle of a roadtrip.Eventually, O’Neill will be judged, to a large degree, on his record. How many games does he win? How much money can he help the program make?But his clock is ticking, and unfortunately — at least for his job security — arrests and criminal charges only make it tick faster.last_img read more
