Trump Orders All Liberians In America To Vacate The Country Within 12 Months

President Trump said on Tuesday he will end a special immigration program that has allowed nearly 4,000 Liberians to legally live and work in the U.S. over the past 25 years. Liberians will now face a similar situation to thousands of people from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan who had their Temporary Protected Status (TPS) terminated by the Trump administration. They either have to leave the country at the expiration of the deadline or risk becoming undocumented immigrants facing deportation. Liberians were first granted TPS in March 1991 under former President George H.W. Bush due to armed conflicts that were gripping the country, and starting in 1999, Liberians were transferred into a separate program called Deferred Enforced Departure, a classification that allowed th...

Latina High School Teacher Sentenced To 40 Years In Prison For Threatening To Fail Her Students If They don’t Have Sex with Her

A teacher of Colombian origin was arrested for sending suggestive photos to her students and threatening to make them fail if they refused to have sex with her. The woman, identified simply as Yokasta M. was arrested after a father of one of the students saw photos of the teacher on his son’s phone and reported to the relevant authorities. This was in 2016. Soon after she was exposed, her husband filed for divorce. The case was highly sensational last year and made news headlines. It was reported that the teacher selected the boys, all less than 17 years of age, based on their appearance.

Weakening Nate Brings Rain, Tornado Warning To U.S. South

BILOXI/PASCAGOULA, Miss. (Reuters) – Hurricane Nate weakened to a tropical depression on Sunday after coming ashore in Mississippi, flooding roads and buildings but sparing the state from catastrophic damages. Maximum sustained winds from Nate, the fourth major storm to hit the United States in less than two months, dropped to 35 miles per hour (55 km per hour) as it moved through Alabama and into Tennessee. The remnants of the storm spawned tornado warnings in those states and the western portions of North Carolina and South Carolina. It is forecast to bring gusty winds and up to 4 inches (10 cm) of rain to parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York on Monday. The storm made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane, the weakest designation by the U.S. National Hurricane Center. Only a few hour...

Nate Downgraded To Tropical Storm In US

Nate was downgraded to a tropical storm early Sunday as it moves farther inland over the US states of Mississippi and Alabama, the National Hurricane Center said.

Venezuela Arrests Two Top Opposition Leaders

The Venezuelan intelligence service arrested two prominent opposition leaders early Tuesday, their relatives said, a day after a vote to choose a much-condemned assembly that supersedes parliament. Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma were both already under house arrest when they were picked up by the intelligence service known by its in acronym Sebin, the wife of Lopez and children of Ledezma said separately. The two men are Venezuela’s most high profile opposition leaders. Both had called for a boycott of Sunday’s vote for a so-called and all-powerful constituent assembly tasked with rewriting the constitution. Both of their families said they held President Nicolas Maduro, the driving force behind the vote, responsible for the leaders’ lives. “They just took Leopoldo away. We...

Nicolas Maduro Defiant As US Slaps Him With Sanctions

A defiant President Nicolas Maduro mocked fresh US sanctions against him after a disputed and deadly weekend vote in Venezuela to elect a new legislative body. The sanctions came as electoral authorities said more than eight million Venezuelans voted on Sunday to create a constitutional assembly - a turnout doubted by independent analysts. The election, which spurred unrest that killed at least 10 people, was labelled illegitimate by leaders across the Americas and Europe. Maduro, however, said on Monday evening that he had no intention of deviating from plans to rewrite the constitution and lashed out at US sanctions, saying the move smacked of "imperialism". "They don't intimidate me. The threats and sanctions of the empire don't intimidate me for a moment," Maduro told a che...
