Семеро убийц в Сальвадоре получили по 390 лет тюрьмы

Семеро преступников, устроивших кровавую резню в марте прошлого года, приговорены судом Сальвадора к 390 годам каждый. Состоявшая из семи человек банда убила 11 сотрудников энергетической компании в департаменте Ла-Либертад, и за каждого убитого судья дал преступникам по 35 лет, сообщает Reuters. Ещё по пять лет тюрьмы преступники получили за организацию преступного сообщества. Убийство людей члены банды совершили из-за того, что те стали случайными свидетелями подготовки другого преступления.

Immigrant Mother Receives Pardon For Minor Driving Conviction, But Still Could Be Deported

WASHINGTON ― Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) pardoned an undocumented mother of two on Wednesday for a years-old conviction for driving without a license in the hope that it will help spare her from deportation. But the fact that she is no longer defined as a criminal might not matter to the Trump administration.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained Liliana Cruz Mendez, the 30-year-old originally from El Salvador, last Thursday when she went to the agency for a routine check-in. ICE had repeatedly allowed her to remain in the U.S. in spite of a 2006 removal order for crossing the border illegally and a 2013 misdemeanor conviction for driving without a license, which she could not obtain because of her status. Her case now becomes another test for President Donald Trump, who claims his focus is on criminals but has detained scores of non-criminals as well. Cruz Mendez can’t be defined as a criminal anymore ― the question is whether ICE cares. The agency indicated after McAuliffe’s pardon announcement that nothing has changed. “ICE took Ms. Cruz Mendez into custody based on a final order of removal issued by an immigration judge in April 2006,” agency spokeswoman Carissa Cutrell said in an email. “Even without any criminal convictions, she is still subject to removal from the United States based on that final order of removal.” Cruz Mendez’s supporters, from advocates to politicians, have not claimed she is not subject to removal. Instead, they argue she has contributed greatly to her community and should be allowed to remain in the U.S. with her husband and children. “Taking Liliana away from her kids & husband won’t make VA safer,” McAuliffe tweeted after announcing his pardon. “Feds need to focus on public safety threats & real immigration reform.” Today I pardoned Liliana Cruz Mendez for a minor driving offense that may contribute to her deportation 1/4 https://t.co/KtXgZZVdyS— Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) May 24, 2017 Liliana is a mother of 2 who was detained following routine check-in w/ ICE. She fled El Salvador in '06 & lives in Falls Church 2/4— Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) May 24, 2017 Pardon won't necessarily prevent Trump admin from deporting her. But will be positive factor as judge decides whether to break family up 3/4— Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) May 24, 2017 Taking Liliana away from her kids & husband won't make VA safer. Feds need to focus on public safety threats & real immigration reform. 4/4— Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) May 24, 2017 Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.), who has advocated for Cruz Mendez’s relief, said afterward that he was “very pleased but still cautious” because the pardon doesn’t change the deportation order, even if it takes away her conviction. “The Trump administration and ICE seem determined to deport anyone who comes across their path who is in the country without papers,” Beyer told HuffPost. “So the simple fact that she’s undocumented in the Trump mind makes her a criminal.”   Cruz Mendez is seeking a stay of removal, which would allow her to remain in the country. Nick Katz of the advocacy group CASA, which is working on her case, said they are hopeful the pardon will help her receive that stay. “It really weakens the foundation of ICE’s argument for why they were saying that she needs to be removed from the United States, and we hope this will weigh strongly in their consideration,” Katz said. He said they plan to push governors to issue pardons in similar situations for immigration-related crimes in an effort to keep people out of deportation proceedings. For now, Cruz remains in detention. Beyer said he hopes Trump can consider what deporting her would do to her children, noting that the president said he was moved by images of violence against children in Syria. “Maybe he could be moved by the idea of a mother being separated from her children by thousands of miles for no credible reason,” he said. “Nobody’s life is going to be helped by this, although many will be hurt.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Trump Administration Tells Thousands Of Haitians To Prepare To Leave

The Department of Homeland Security had until Tuesday to decide whether to extend temporary protected status, or TPS, for roughly 58,700 Haitians, who have been approved to remain in the U.S. following a devastating 2010 earthquake in their native country. Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly chose to extend TPS for six months ― until early next year. When that deadline draws closer, he could extend it again based on conditions in Haiti, but officials suggested he wouldn’t. “We are strongly encouraging current TPS recipients to take advantage of this six-month period to resolve their affairs, to include obtaining travel documentation,” a DHS official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told reporters on a press call. “Congress designated the program ... by the name ‘temporary protected status.’ It’s not supposed to be permanent.” Human rights groups and lawmakers had urged the administration to extend TPS for Haitians based on ongoing problems in that country in the wake of the 2010 earthquake, which killed up to 316,000 people and displaced 1.5 million. A cholera epidemic struck the country soon after and killed thousands more. Seven years later, the country is still suffering: Some 55,000 people remain in camps and nearly 60 percent of the population lives in poverty. TPS is currently open to Haitians who were in the U.S. on Jan. 12, 2011, the one-year anniversary of the earthquake. It allows individuals who could otherwise be deported to stay and work legally, but as the official said, it’s temporary. The program for Haitians has been extended several times already, for six to 18 months on each occasion. The current extension is effective July 23 and will last until Jan. 22, 2018. Individuals with TPS will have to leave at that point if the program is not extended or they cannot obtain other authorization to stay, such as asylum.  Kelly said in a public statement that conditions in Haiti are improving and that this may be the final extension. “I believe there are indications that Haiti ― if its recovery from the 2010 earthquake continues at pace ― may not warrant further TPS extension past January 2018,” he said. “TPS as enacted in law is inherently temporary in nature, and beneficiaries should plan accordingly that this status may finally end after the extension announced today.”  The decision to extend TPS for only six months left some Haitians terrified about their future. Nermose Richemon, 33, has lived in the U.S. since 2005. She and her husband, who also has temporary protected status, want to remain in the U.S., where they work, pay taxes and send money back to help relatives in Haiti. Richemon is most concerned about her health. She said a serious medical condition has left her largely unable to see out of her left eye. If she loses her job and insurance, she’s afraid she’ll be unable to continue visiting the doctor and could lose her eye entirely.  She’d like to tell the government, “Please, please do something for us, because I cannot go back home the way I am right now.” Before Monday’s announcement, DHS officials had sought data on how many TPS recipients from Haiti have committed crimes in the U.S. ― an unusual move because the decision on whether to maintain protections is based on conditions outside the U.S., not the actions of people taking shelter here. At the time that story broke in May and again on Monday, DHS officials insisted they were trying to collect data on criminality, employment and other factors for their information and not to malign any nationality. They also said the data would not be part of the TPS decision-making process. Haiti is one of 13 countries whose citizens are currently eligible to receive TPS. Four nations on the list ― Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen ― were singled out by President Donald Trump in his blocked executive orders banning travelers from certain Muslim-majority countries. Trump has also spoken disparagingly about border-crossers from other countries on the list, such as El Salvador and Honduras. DHS officials indicated some changes might be coming for those other countries as Kelly looks at TPS with “a fresh set of eyes” to ensure that the program is operating as Congress requires. “It’s at many times easier for one to kick the can down the road with some of these extensions or redesignations than it is to make the hard decisions that Congress has asked us to do,” an official said. “That is the way that the secretary is approaching TPS designations in this administration.” The story has been updated with comment from a Haitian with temporary protected status. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Trump extends legal protection for nearly 59,000 Haitians in U.S.

President Donald Trump is again backing away from his hard-line anti-immigration rhetoric from the campaign trail, this time by extending the legal status of about 50,000 Haitians already in the U.S., people familiar with the decision said.Haitian activists, the Haitian government, immigrant advocates and a bipartisan group of lawmakers pressed the White House to maintain the special status for Haitians affected by the 2010 earthquake in their country, with some advocates warning that Trump and other Republicans could face political repercussions—particularly in Florida, which is home to a large Haitian community.The Department of Homeland Security allowed only another six months, passing up the typical 18-month extension. Trump aides are pointing to that curtailment as evidence of their intent to conduct a more rigorous review of the Temporary Protected Status program under which the Haitians won relief six years ago.But the move to allow the Haitians to remain in the U.S. is another instance of Trump softening his tough line on immigration.While Trump promised to immediately end President Barack Obama's accommodation for so-called Dreamers after taking office, the new president has not done so and is continuing to renew their "deferred action" status and work permits. About 650,000 individuals who entered the U.S. illegally as children are currently enrolled in that program.Trump also signed a government funding bill last month that does not provide money for the wall he promised to construct along the border with Mexico.It's unclear what the move to extend the protection for Haitians means for other beneficiaries of the TPS program, including about 200,000 citizens of El Salvador and 50,000 citizens of Honduras. The protection for El Salvador dates back to the civil war there in the early 1990s and was extended due to earthquakes in 2001. Hondurans in the U.S. were allowed to stay following damage caused by Hurricane Mitch in 1998.

Лидер группы "Ленинград" Сергей Шнуров заявил, что участие в "Евровидении" не представляет для него никакого интереса, и назвал конкурс бессмысленным и раздутым шоу. — Евровидение — не моя игра. Я в этот странный вид спорта, состязание песнями, не играю. Не моё призвание. Вообще не понимаю, для чего это и что это. Шоу просто раскачали и раздули, потому что соревновательный мотив сейчас превалирует. Фактически сублимация военных действий, — заявил музыкант в эфире латвийской радиостанции Baltkom. Напомним, в прошлом году выдвигались предложения, чтобы Россию в 2017 году на "Евровидении" представлял Шнур. Как ранее сообщал Лайф, международный конкурс в 2017 году завершился победой португальского исполнителя Сальвадори Собрала, второе место занял уроженец Москвы Кристиан Костов, представлявший Болгарию.
