Groups ask California governor to deter parolee deportations

Groups ask California governor to deter parolee deportationsImmigrant rights groups called Friday for Gov. Gavin Newsom to end policies they say ease the transfer of prison inmates to federal authorities despite California’s efforts to provide a sanctuary to those who are in the country illegally. The groups asked Newsom to stop prison officials from holding parolees until they can be picked up by federal immigration officials. California passed a law in 2017 barring local and state agencies from cooperating with federal immigration authorities over those who have committed certain crimes, mostly misdemeanors, but critics said it doesn’t apply to the state prison system.

U.S. fires tear gas to deter migrants making New Year's run at border

U.S. fires tear gas to deter migrants making New Year's run at borderU.S. border agents launched tear gas into Mexico early Tuesday to deter a group of migrants from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border at Tijuana, according to a Reuters witness and the U.S. government. Clouds of the noxious gas could be seen wafting up from around the fence at the border, and one migrant picked up a canister and threw it back across the border into U.S. territory. Tijuana has become a flashpoint in the debate over U.S. immigration policy, which has been intensified by the recent deaths of two migrant children in U.S. custody and a partial U.S. government shutdown over President Donald Trump’s $ 5 billion demand to lawmakers for a wall along the border with Mexico.
