U.S. to expand rapid deportation nationwide with sweeping new rule

U.S. to expand rapid deportation nationwide with sweeping new ruleThe U.S. Department of Homeland Security said on Monday it will order more speedy deportations of immigrants who crossed illegally and are caught anywhere in the United States, expanding a program typically applied only along the southern border with Mexico. The rule set to be published in the Federal Register on Tuesday would apply “expedited removal” to any illegal crossers who cannot prove to immigration agents that they have been living in the country for two years. Legal experts said it was a dramatic expansion of a program that cuts out review by an immigration judge.

Erdogan wins sweeping new powers after Turkish election victory

Erdogan wins sweeping new powers after Turkish election victoryBy Tuvan Gumrukcu and Nevzat Devranoglu ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan won sweeping new executive powers on Monday after his victory in elections that also saw his Islamist-rooted AK Party and its nationalist allies secure a majority in parliament. Erdogan’s main rival, Muharrem Ince of the Republican People’s Party (CHP), conceded defeat but branded the elections unjust and said the presidential system that now takes effect was “very dangerous” because it would lead to one-man rule. A European rights watchdog also said the opposition had faced “unequal conditions”, adding that restrictions on media freedom to cover the elections were accentuated by a continuing state of emergency imposed in Turkey after a failed 2016 coup.
