Judge blocks Trumps asylum policy but delays enforcement

first_img Posted: April 9, 2019 A U.S. judge decided Monday to block the Trump administration’s policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait for an immigration court to hear their cases, but the ruling is on hold for several days.Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco granted a request on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America and legal advocacy groups to halt the practice while their lawsuit moves forward, but he held off on enforcing his decision until Friday to give the government a chance to ask an appeals court for a review.The policy lacks sufficient protections to ensure migrants don’t face “undue risk to their lives or freedom” in Mexico, the judge said. Seeborg also said a law that President Donald Trump’s administration cited as its authority to send back migrants does not apply to asylum seekers such as those who sued.It was not immediately clear whether the administration would ask an appeals court to put the ruling on hold. The U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment. Trump tweeted that the ruling was “unfair to the U.S.”The launch of the policy in January at the nation’s busiest border crossing — in San Diego — marked an unprecedented change to the U.S. asylum system, government officials and asylum experts said. Families seeking asylum typically have been released in the U.S. with notices to appear in court.The Trump administration says the policy responds to a crisis at the southern border that has overwhelmed the ability of immigration officials to detain migrants. Growing numbers of families are fleeing poverty and gang violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.The ruling came a day after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen resigned and as the administration faces repeated court setbacks on strict anti-immigration measures that were a signature campaign promise for Trump, including losses on such policies as separating families at the border and ending protections for young immigrants.The lawsuit says the Trump administration is violating U.S. law by failing to adequately evaluate the dangers that migrants face in Mexico.Under the new policy, asylum seekers are not guaranteed interpreters or lawyers and don’t get to argue to a judge that they face the potential of persecution or torture if they are sent back to Mexico, Judy Rabinovitz, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, said at a March court hearing.Seeborg said in his ruling that “further procedural protections would be required to conform to the government’s acknowledged obligation to ensure aliens are not returned to unduly dangerous circumstances.”The ACLU and other groups also argue in the lawsuit that a law allowing the return of some immigrants to Mexico does not apply to asylum seekers who cross the border illegally or arrive at a border crossing without proper documents.Seeborg agreed, saying the “plain language” of the law supported that interpretation.“Try as it may, the Trump administration cannot simply ignore our laws in order to accomplish its goal of preventing people from seeking asylum in the United States,” Rabinovitz said in a statement after the ruling.The administration hopes that making asylum seekers wait in Mexico will discourage weak claims and help reduce an immigration court backlog of more than 800,000 cases.Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart said at the March hearing that there was a process to protect immigrants who could face harm in Mexico. All 11 plaintiffs in the lawsuit are represented by attorneys, and 10 already have appeared for court proceedings, he said.Border Patrol arrests, the most widely used gauge of illegal crossings, have risen sharply over the last year but are relatively low in historical terms after hitting a 46-year low in 2017.The launch of the policy followed months of delicate talks between the U.S. and Mexico. Mexicans and children traveling alone are exempt from it.___ AP, AP Judge blocks Trump’s asylum policy but delays enforcement April 9, 2019 Categories: California News, Local San Diego News, National & International News Tags: Immigration FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Nipsey Hussle Beloved LA Rapper And Activist Lived As A Patron To

Rapper And Activist, Lived As A Patron To His Community Facebook News NETWORK ERRORCannot Contact ServerRELOAD YOUR SCREEN OR TRY SELECTING A DIFFERENT VIDEO Apr 1, 2019 – 4:52 pm Remembering Nipsey Hussle Twitter The GRAMMY-nominated rapper was fatally shot outside of his clothing store, the Marathon Clothing, in Los Angeles, on SundayJennifer VelezGRAMMYs Apr 1, 2019 – 12:06 pm GRAMMY-nominated rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot outside of his clothing store, the Marathon Clothing, in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 31), police confirmed. He was 33.Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, highlighted life in South Los Angeles and the socio-economic struggles people in the community faced, from single mothers working to feed their families to his own rise from financial struggle, through his poignant lyrics. He released his much-awaited official debut album, Victory Lap, in February 2018 after years of releasing several mixtapes, including The Marathon mixtape. For Hussle, creating the album was a weaving of his experiences and represented a coming full circle on his own terms. “We want to just hear great lyrics, great music, great flow and great storytelling and so I just wanted to really be intentional that that was the goal with the album,” he told the Recording Academy. “You know, I even had a conversation with the label people and it was just like, you know, the heads of the label, but what do you all expect from me on this one? Because for me, but my goal, my big picture goal to move forward and to make a step toward what my goal is as an artist, I need to make something really authentic and really organic on this first one.”The debut album was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st GRAMMY Awards and was a project that Hussle made with fans in mind.”When I went into recording this album I [had] a ton of mixed tapes … So I just went back through all of my projects and I listened and I put myself in the mindset of a fan. And I was like what made me a fan in it, you know? And each project had two or three moments that people really held onto,” he said. “Some have more than others and I wanted the album to be a collection of those moments. I didn’t want to be nostalgic, but I wanted to be aware of why they’re connected.Hussle, a native of the Crenshaw district in South Los Angeles, was also an entrepreneur and activist who was heavily invested in his community. A day before the launch of his album, he opened a co-working STEM Center in the area called Vector90 Too Big To Fail. He owned a clothing store on Slauson called The Marathon Clothing.Beyond being a businessman and an artist, Hussle was also a loving father of two. Fatherhood served as an inspiration for his music:”Fatherhood has affected and inspired me deeply … when I went about doing music, I was really in the studio, spending the night, you know, sacrificing my personal time. Just really putting all my energy and time into the studio and I thought that was the most effective way to do it, he said. “But then having a kid, my daughter years back and then my son recently, it made me understand a balance and you might even get more inspired leaving the studio some time, going out and living and just taking her, your daughter, your kids somewhere and you might come back and what you’ve been trying to do sitting in this room wasn’t going to get done sitting in this room.You had to go out and breathe a little bit and come back in and you refresh and you ready to go. “Hussle saw life as a metaphor for a marathon that included not only his resiliency, but also his community’s. “Make sure that you stick to what you believe in,” he said. “The story that I’m telling on this album made the moment that I’m in even more special and important because it shows you the distance and the ground we covered.”Hussle is survived by his girlfriend, actress Lauren London, and his two children.One Take: Nipsey Hussle On L.A., Ice Cream, Kendrick Lamar & MoreRead more Nipsey Hussle Lived As A Patron To His Community nipsey-hussle-beloved-la-rapper-and-activist-lived-patron-his-community Email last_img read more

Bosch built a sensor platform just for flying taxis

first_img Share your voice All of the electric urban aircraft unveiled at Uber Elevate 2018 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Enlarge ImageThis little box is all Bosch thinks flying taxis will need to operate the sensors required for autonomous flight. Bosch Flying taxis are a growing area of interest as congestion continues to get worse. Bosch is a supplier with its hands all over the automotive industry, and now, it wants to get into the flying-taxi game by leveraging its current strengths and applying them to a burgeoning field.Bosch on Tuesday unveiled its new sensor platform, which is aimed specifically at air taxis — small, short-distance aircraft that will likely operate without human assistance. Using its knowledge from developing sensor platforms for automated development cars, Bosch has combined a batch of sensors on a single platform that the supplier believes will be able to give air-taxi development the parts it needs without the insane cost usually dedicated to aerospace tech.The supplier says the system is plug-and-play, which means it should be able to integrate into a number of existing flying-taxi systems without too many complications. Bosch didn’t give a full listing of every sensor built into the platform, but it did call out a few: Acceleration sensors track movement, yaw-rate sensors determine angle of attack, magnetic field sensors monitor its heading, and pressure sensors measure altitude and airspeed. “Through our Bosch solution, we aim to make civil aviation with flying taxis affordable for a wide range of providers,” said Marcus Parentis, who heads Bosch’s team in charge of these control units, in a statement. “We are talking to air taxi manufacturers from the aerospace and automotive industries, as well as with startups that build air vehicles and are looking to provide sharing services.”We still have a way to go before flying taxis even get approval to take off — the FAA does not mess around, after all — but Bosch believes they’re definitely a part of our future. It pointed to analysis from Morgan Stanley consultants that claims the flying-taxi market could be as high as $1.5 trillion by 2040. Sounds a little lofty, but hey, we may as well aim high. 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Post a comment 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous More From Roadshow Tags Auto Tech Future Cars 8 Photos 0 Boschlast_img read more

Trump to let US firms sell tech to Huawei

first_img Post a comment US firms can again deal with Huawei. Óscar Gutiérrez/CNET President Donald Trump agreed Saturday to lift some restrictions against US companies selling high-tech gear to Chinese telecom giant Huawei, says a report. “We’re talking about equipment where there’s not a great national-emergency problem with it,” Trump said after a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to The Wall Street Journal.In May, Trump signed an executive order essentially banning Huawei because of national security concerns that the company is too closely tied to the Chinese government and that its gear could be used to spy on other countries and companies. Huawei has repeatedly said those fears are unfounded.

Trump said the deal to restart talks would see the US delaying added tariffs on Chinese products in return for China buying American farm goods. It’s not yet clear exactly what Huawei restrictions will be lifted. “We’re going to work with China on where we left off to see if we can make a deal,” Trump reportedly said during a news conference. The president said he’d hold off on the Huawei issue until the end of negotiations, the Journal said.John Neuffer, president of the Semiconductor Industry Association, a trade group for makers of chips for computers, phones and other equipment, told the Journal he needed more details on what Huawei can now buy from member companies. He added, though, that he’s “encouraged the talks are restarting and additional tariffs are on hold.”Unnamed sources told the Journal that US national security officials have been exploring ways of narrowing the Huawei prohibitions so they pinpoint sales of US gear used in “chokepoints,” places where the Chinese company’s tech could control wireless networks. Security experts have voiced concern about foreign powers disrupting US communications networks, especially during a national emergency.Originally published June 28, 9:44 a.m. PT.Update, 10:20 a.m.: Adds mention of concern about “chokepoints.” Share your voice 0 Huaweilast_img read more

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G to finally hit stores on this date Top

first_imgWeight Close Connectivity NFC, MST *May differ by market and mobile operator. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G coming to South Korean markets first.Samsung Mobile PressIf rumours are to be believed, the Galaxy S10 5G will not come cheap and for obvious reasons, will be cost around 1.5 million Won (approx. $1,328/€1,167/ Rs 91,194). Considering the Apple iPhone XS and XS Max, the Galaxy S10 5G price looks modest.Samsung Galaxy S10 5G has a pretty much similar design language as the S10, but one key difference is that it has a bigger 6.7-inch Quad HD+ Curved Dynamic AMOLED with 19:9 aspect ratio.Samsung phone houses quad-camera one the back, one 12 MP wide-angle, 16 MP ultra-wide angle and a 12 MP telephoto sensor and Time-of-Flight snapper with laser autofocus and LED flash. On the front, it packs 10MP Dual Pixel shooter with a 3D Depth sensor.The Galaxy S10 5G comes with Android Pie-based One UI, 8GB RAM, 256GB and a 4,500mAh battery. Like previous years, Samsung is offering Galaxy S10 series in Exynos 9820 processor in select markets including India, but rest of the features will be the same as the Snapdragon 855 variant.Another most interesting batter feature shared by all Galaxy S10 series models is the PowerShare. It offers reverse charge capability, meaning if your friend owns a phone with wireless charging capability, but is run out of power, he/she can place it on your fully charged Galaxy S10 series phone to power up the former. It can even charge a smartwatch provided it has WPC Qi wireless charging certification. World’s biggest smartphone-maker Samsung unveiled an array of Galaxy S10 series models—Galaxy S10, S10e, S10+ and Galaxy S10 5G in February. The first three models are already available in the market and now, it’s the turn of the ultra top-end mobile to hit stores.Samsung is slated to be released the Galaxy S10 5G model first in the company’s home market South Korea on April 5, reported the local daily Korea Herald. It can be noted that the device’s price is still a mystery and also, the company will be not be taking pre-orders, instead, it is bringing straight to the store shelves early next month.

Budget 2017 Higher likelihood of repo rate cut in February if govt

first_imgIf Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley sticks to the fiscal consolidation path while presenting the Union Budget for FY2018, there is a higher likelihood of a repo rate cut in the Monetary Policy Committee’s February 2017 meeting, Aditi Nayar, a senior economist at ICRA, said in a note released on Monday (January 15). RBI governor Urjit Patel conveys subtle message to Modi Govt before Budget 2017However, Aditi added that the room for incremental rate cuts would be limited to 25 bps over the next six months as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) focuses more on achieving the mid-point of the inflation target range of four per cent. “With concerns regarding the sustainability of the rebound in industrial growth in November 2016 and headline CPI inflation likely to undershoot the RBI’s target for Q4 FY2017, there is a higher likelihood of a repo rate cut in February,” she said.On the inflation front, ICRA expects the CPI inflation to record one more sub-3.5 per cent figure in January 2017, before recording an uptick in February-March 2017 as the favourable base effect wanes. Overall, the rating agency continues to expect CPI inflation to undershoot the RBI’s projection of five per cent for the fourth quarter of FY2017. Going ahead, food items, particularly vegetables, may continue to display a seasonal moderation in January 2017. Moreover, a 13 per cent rise in rabi acreage for pulses has led to a decline in prices in the ongoing month. Overall, rabi sowing is seven per cent higher than year-ago levels, though on a small base. While precipitation has been low in the post-monsoon season, healthy reservoir levels on a seasonally adjusted basis would support the yields, ICRA said.Earlier last week, government data showed that the CPI inflation eased to a 25-month low at 3.4 per cent in December 2016 from 3.6 per cent in November 2016. Food and beverages inflation declined to a 59-month low at two per cent in December 2016 from 2.6 percent in November 2016. The core-CPI inflation (excluding food and beverages and fuel and light) eased marginally to 4.9 per cent in December 2016 from five per cent in November 2016, displaying a limited reaction to changes in supply and demand after the note ban.last_img read more

At Baltimores Carroll Park Cookout Gang Members Seek to Provide Positive Example

first_imgChildren line up to have their face painted by De Bowman at a community cookout in Carroll Park on June 20. The event’s lead organizer was Eric Bowman, a member of the Bloods who has dedicated himself to uplifting his community. (AFRO Photo/Roberto Alejandro)The DJ played clean versions of hip-hop hits from the golden era to today. Children had their faces painted before hitting the dance floor to whip and nae nae to the entertainment of older relatives. There was free food, school supply giveaways, and local residents signed up for assistance with utility and other bills.It was your standard community event on June 20 in Baltimore’s Carroll Park, except that its lead organizer, Eric Bowman, did not belong to a church or a grassroots advocacy organization. He is a Blood, an unapologetic member of the notorious street gang who is nonetheless determined to show that there is more to gangs than making a living on the streets.“What I am (a gang member), that’s me, I was raised in it, I was born in it, that’s me [but that] doesn’t mean I have to be negative and I’m not,” said Bowman. “But no, I’m not going to change who I am. Just because I am a Blood doesn’t mean that I interact with negativity and stuff like that, because I don’t. I know what it is to be there, and I don’t want to be in there. If you actually want to change things, you want to elevate, you want to move forward, you have to change the way you think.”Charles Littlejohn is a Piru—a gang closely affiliated with the Bloods—but said events like the cookout organized by Bowman are important because they show that there is more to gangs than violence and negativity, and that they can be a positive force in the community, especially where youth are concerned.“We’re taking a stand,” said Littlejohn. “It’s not about us anymore, it’s about the generation that’s under us, our kids. We don’t want our kids to grow up the way we grew up, or have to go through what we’ve been through. So we’re just trying to give them a different outlook to let them know that the route that we took, they don’t have to take that route because there are more choices and there are better opportunities out there for them than there were for us.”One community member, Lorenzo, came to the cookout to find out whether he could assist with the event and earn community service hours towards his probation requirements. Like Littlejohn, Lorenzo spoke of the importance of events like this being organized by persons who have lived the street life and the impact that can have on youth.“[The kids] need more of this right here, to show them that there’s more out here than just the streets and what’s going on in the streets,” said Lorenzo, adding, “That’s what we need more of to show these kids that there’s more to living than just what they’re seeing on the TV. That TV, that’s fabricat[ed] living…This right here, what they’re doing in this park right now for the community, now that’s living.”Bowman agreed, saying he understands that he is a role model and that kids look up to persons like him.“We’re role models. So [if] they look up to us, why not give them something positive?” said Bowman.Maryland Senate majority leader Sen. Catherine Pugh (D-Baltimore City) made a brief appearance at the cookout, and spoke of the importance of different communities having the chance to get to know each other as they work toward the betterment of the city.“It’s always good when we are mixing, integrating, talking with each other, sharing opportunities with each other,” said Pugh. “It’s important for us to see each other in different lights, and as I said during the unrest in Baltimore, what people saw was a microcosm of Baltimore. We have the very rich, the very poor, Black, White, but all of us working together is going to help make a better Baltimore.”ralejandro@afro.comlast_img read more

Destination determines direction

first_imgWhat made you realise that motivation speaking was your calling?My life is a result of a contribution of all the people I have met in all these years and they are responsible for enriching it. Books, too, have had a very positive influence in my life and has played a huge role in making me who I am today. When I started noticing that these positive influences had changed my life for the better, I wanted to carry them forward for others. With that in mind I started volunteering my time in maximum security prisons in the United States and started teaching prisoners about and attitude-self esteem programmes. After observing them, I thought of bringing these fundamentals to the corporate world and started working with corporate giants. Eventually after publishing my book Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’You Can Win in 1997 people started attending my sessions after reading my book and things fell into place. What are you referring to when you talk about bringing about a positive change in people’s lives?The most important change is the change of attitude, because invariably, many times in life we do not realise that we are our own biggest problems. We never analyse our own behaviour, instead we keep trying to control other people’s behaviour, not realising that other people’s behaviour is a reflection of our own. It is impossible to change how others behave but by changing my own actions and reaction, I can influence how others behave towards me. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixAnother important factor we need to understand is that we cannot solve all our problems but we can certainly learn how to handle them. Life is full of choices and compromises, it seems like a contradiction but  really it’s not. If I ill-treat someone, I have chosen to be ill-treated myself, if I drink too much tonight, I have chosen that horrible headache the next morning, so life is full of choices and if you look at it, right from morning till night we keep making choices one after the other including what time we choose to wake up, to what we eat to how we dress up, everything is a choice we make.  In life we cannot choose the cards we are dealt with, but what we can choose is how we play the game. Sometimes nature gives us a lemon, it is our choice whether we cry or we make lemonade out of it.What are the ‘golden rules’ for  success?Persistence, hard work and focus are key to achieving success. Persistence is basically ability to bounce back even after several failures. Be it Thomas Edison or Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, they are all prefect examples of persistence. There is no substitute to hard work in life. These days’ people talk about working smarter versus harder. Take for example Olympic gold medallist and record holder Michael Phelps who has trained for over 10,000 hours for 15 seconds of performance. Most people want to succeed but very few are willing to pay the price to prepare to succeed.Most of us lack focus in life, unless you have a clear destination, how can you find directions? Most of us lose focus of our target and hence, end up not succeeding in life. To succeed, you need to do whatever it takes to achieve the target, put in that extra effort, even when it hurts. The difference between a good and a bad professional is that a good professional is that even on a bad day, a good professional’s output remains the same as that on a good day. They won’t compromise on the quality of performance. Could you tell us about your future plans or projects that you are working on?Well I am in the process of writing four more books on leadership, parenting skills, customer service and time management. So these four books, two of them should be out by September this year. Beyond it, we have a couple of things in mind. We are looking at starting to offer leadership programme in management institutes because today graduates that are coming out from engineering and management schools and NASDAQ did a study and Narayan Murthy said it too, that 90 % of them are unemployable. Would we be seeing you back in politics any time soon?Well, all I can say is that my getting into the political arena was not a trend or a fad that came in. You see when some things bother you deep inside and they keep coming back to haunt you and one has to take an action. All these issues of corruption etc. that have been raised in the recent past, I have already filed a petitions regarding the same in the court ten years back and I am still fighting them. I haven’t ruled out anything at this point and there are political parties that are in touch with me. I am still looking at how I can make a contribution; I may not necessarily have a ticket and fight the elections but I will certainly be supporting some good people.last_img read more
