Jurgen Klopp has been credited with clearing most of the “deadwood” out of Liverpool, but John Aldridge feels there are more exits to be made and “two strikers” to be snapped up in the summer.The man in charge at Anfield has overhauled the squad he inherited from Brendan Rodgers back in October 2015.Major reconstruction was required, and it has not come cheap. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? The Reds are, however, considerably stronger for the tweaks that have been made and further additions are expected in current and future windows.Aldridge believes more firepower should be topping the wish list, once the final few stragglers of a previous era have been moved on to pastures new.The former Liverpool forward told the Irish Independent: “Klopp and the club’s technical department have done well to get rid of a lot of the deadwood in the squad over the last couple of years, but a few more bits have floated to the surface now and they don’t need me to tell him who they are.“I was disappointed and yet not surprised by some of the performances at Wolves.“Alberto Moreno didn’t change too many opinions with his display and when I look at Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge up front, it suggested two more strikers will be needed next summer.”Liverpool may be Premier League champions by the time the opportunity to add over the summer presents itself.A four-point lead is currently held over the chasing pack and Aldridge believes a recent wobble in top-flight and FA Cup competition could actually work in the Reds’ favour.He said: “The top Premier League managers tend to rotate their team in the early stages of the domestic cup competitions these days and other teams are clearly adapting better to that than Liverpool, which is an area Klopp needs to address ahead of next season.“For now, the priority has to be refocusing minds and banishing the notion that Liverpool’s season is falling off the rails after a couple of high-profile defeats.“Okay, they came up short in a very tight game against Manchester City, but it was the Liverpool reserve team that lost at Wolves and it should not affect the mood ahead of what is now a massive game at Brighton on Saturday.“A glance at the Premier League table confirms Liverpool are still sitting at the top and they will be looking to open up a seven-point lead on Manchester City at Brighton, as their chief rivals don’t play again until next Monday.“It’s a wonderful position to be in and as we have seen with Leicester and Chelsea in their Premier League title wins in recent years, having spare weekends to refresh players can be a decisive factor against rivals who are playing three games a week.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the web read more

Commissioner General of Tax Administration of Jamaica (TAJ), Ainsley Powell, also praised the property tax team. Story Highlights Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Audley Shaw, is reporting an increase in property tax collections for the first quarter of 2017/18, with $3.7 billion garnered for April to June.The figure is $400 million higher than the $3.3 billion raked in for the similar period of 2016/17, when the county collected a record $7.62 billion in property taxes.Minister Shaw, who was addressing an appreciation luncheon for the all-island property tax team held at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort in Montego Bay on Friday (July 7), commended the members for their efforts in enabling the Government to achieve the “highest level of collection in property taxes ever recorded in Jamaica’s history”.He also hailed property owners who came forward to meet their obligations. He noted that the record figure for the last financial year shows that Jamaicans are becoming more tax compliant.“The collection achieved over the last financial year was no mean feat. In 2007/08, we collected just $1.85 billion in property taxes; and in 2008/09, it went up to almost $2.3 billion. There was a decline in 2009/10 to $1.8 billion; and in 2012/13, collections climbed to $2.8 billion. By 2013/14, it closed at $5.8 billion, and as we have seen in 2016/17, we surpassed even the record of 2014/15, when collection stood at $7.4 billion,” he noted.Commissioner General of Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ), Ainsley Powell, also praised the property tax team.“All parishes had to pull their weight, and I can say, safely, that the compliance level in all the parishes went up a lot… and that contributed to the achievement,” he said.The TAJ Commissioner noted that the collection target for 2017/18 has increased to $9.6 billion.“That’s a tidy sum, but I don’t have any doubt… based on what I am seeing coming through in the numbers, that we will achieve this year’s target and probably exceed it,” he said.

MONTREAL — Protesters gathered outside the Montreal courthouse today for a scheduled appearance by Gilbert Rozon on sex crime charges, but the Just for Laughs founder never showed, choosing to be represented by his lawyer.A judge granted a request by Rozon’s lawyer Pierre Poupart that the case be put off until April 25.With the court date coinciding with International Women’s Day, a few dozen people protested outside. Dominique Daigneault, a union president, said the protest was a reminder that full equality of the sexes has not been reached and that women are still victims of violence.Rozon, 64, was charged in December with rape and indecent assault. The allegations come from a single female complainant and date back to 1979.Rozon is also facing a $10-million class-action lawsuit alleging that he abused at least 20 women between 1982 and 2016. Last August, the Quebec Court of Appeal allowed Rozon to appeal the decision authorizing the lawsuit. The appeal has not yet been heard.Rozon, who denies any wrongdoing, stepped down as president of Just For Laughs last year, and an investor group bought the company in the spring.The Canadian Press read more

13 February 2008The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today announced the creation of a global partnership with the Vodafone Group Foundation and the UN Foundation aimed at increasing the effectiveness of information and communications technology (ICT) response to major emergencies around the world. With a $4.3 million commitment from The Vodafone Group Foundation-United Nations Foundation Technology Partnership as well as a further $1.8 million contribution from the WFP, the initiative will develop the first-ever ICT training programme which will be open to the global community of humanitarian relief organizations, the food agency said in a news release.“Over the next three years, this partnership will help contribute to our work to help save millions of lives,” said Josette Sheeran, WFP’s Executive Director. “Better telecommunications mean we can respond faster and more efficiently, with much greater access to those in urgent need.”She added that WFP was greatly encouraged that The Vodafone Group Foundation and UN Foundation recognized that telecommunications are essential to food aid convoys, aircraft and medical teams delivering vital relief assistance.The focus of the partnership will be to standardize ICT solutions used by global aid organizations to speed the ability to set up critical communications networks in the immediate aftermath of a humanitarian crisis. Other aspects planned for the next three years include supporting the immediate deployment of rapid response ICT teams.Kathy Bushkin Calvin, Chief Operating Officer of the United Nations Foundation, pinted out that in 2007, aid groups responded to 19 major crises worldwide. “By investing in disaster response before disaster strikes, and by opening this partnership to the entire relief community, we know that this will help strengthen everyone’s efforts on the ground.”The programme builds on funding provided by the two Foundations in 2006 to research and develop ICT best practices. read more
Elilan has however not been heard of since and the army had also, following the end of the war, denied any knowledge of his whereabouts. (Colombo Gazette) Karunanidhi has since lost the Chief Minister post to his arch rival AIDMK chief J. Jayalalithaa but Saseetharan said that Kanimozhi must still take responsibility over what happened. Elilan was the LTTE political chief in Trincomalee but he fled to the north after the east was liberated by the army. During the final stages of the war in the north, Elilan and several other LTTE members and leaders had surrendered to the army. “She told him to leave his arms and surrender saying her father who was the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister at the time, was working with the Indian Government on the surrender. So my husband surrendered and after that we have not heard from him or Kanimozhi,” she said. Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Northern Provincial Council member Ananthi Saseetharan accused India’s Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) party chief M. Karunanidhi’s daughter Kanimozhi Karunanidhi of failing to ensure the safety of her husband S. Elilan.Saseetharan said that Elilan had surrendered to the army during the final stages of the war after Kanimozhi Karunanidhi had assured him of his safety. read more
News Corp interviewed six Sri Lankan refugees living in India who said they were aware of fellow refugees who had sold their kidneys to get to Australia.“I have heard and seen people donate a kidney in the camp,” a 42 year old mother living in a refugee camp told News Corp.“For their children they will do whatever they can do to get to Australia.” Doctors trying to close down the trade have received death threats. “Men and women have been exploited and they are cheated … and this is most offensive,” he told News Corp. It’s estimated around 1,000 foreigners from Israel, Malaysia, the Maldives and other countries are travelling to Sri Lanka each year to buy a human organ and have it transplanted.Sri Lankan doctors are making lots of money, up to $60,000 per transplant, and the operations are taking place in private hospitals.Sri Lankan authorities are turning a blind eye because they share in some of the payment, News Corp has been told.“Organ sales are rife in Sri Lanka, it’s a cesspit,” says Professor Jeremy Chapman the head of the International Transplantation Society dedicated to ending organ trafficking. (Colombo Gazette) Sri Lankan Refugee advocate Samuel Chandrahasan says around 500 Sri Lankan refugees have sold their organs in the last three years to help cover the $3,000 bill to get to Australia by boat. Chandrahasan says the refugees are taken to hospitals in Colombo where their kidneys are removed.“The numbers are close to a few hundred over a period of three years.”News Corp has spoken to doctors in Sri Lanka who confirm there is a booming trade in organ trafficking in that country with up to 13 doctors involved. Sri Lankan asylum seekers are selling their kidneys so they can pay to get on a boat to Australia, a News Corp investigation into the illegal organ trade has found.A three-year News Corp investigation has found almost 100 desperate Australians have paid to have an illegal transplant overseas because demand for organs in Australia outstrips supply. “No-one in the refugee camps has been involved but (refugees) outside have been victimised.“The people who get involved in this people smuggling effort become indebted and their families left behind have enormous problems they face having to pay back the loans,” he says. read more
“Should everything proceed as planned, we expect the first family visit flight to take place in early March,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesman Kris Janowski told a news briefing in Geneva. The proposed flights follow a go-ahead from Morocco, Algeria, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Saguia el-Hamra and Rio de Oro (POLISARIO) for the visits linking residents of five Western Saharan refugee camps around the Algerian town of Tindouf with their relatives in the Territory. It will mark the first time that the some 20 initial participants each from the camps and the Territory will have face-to-face contact with relatives since the outbreak of war in the mid-1970s. Using a UN-chartered Antonov aircraft from the UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO), refugees will fly to the Territory while families from Laayoune will visit relatives in the camps. The air shuttle will take place on a regular basis, carrying four to five families in each direction. A senior UNHCR staff member left earlier this week for Tindouf to make arrangements for the registration of participants from the camps. Similar arrangements are underway in Laayoune so that families can fly directly to Tindouf to visit relatives. This is the latest in a series of confidence-building measures designed to bring greater normalcy to the lives of the 165,000 refugees living in the camps. Just a month ago, UNHCR inaugurated the first telephone lines linking people in the Territory with the camps. The agency is also negotiating the start of a mail service. read more

He said there had been “little progress” in talks to avoid going over the fiscal cliff.Markets started to revive back from the worst levels of the morning after House Speaker John Boehner said he was optimistic that a deal can be reached with President Barack Obama to avert the so-called fiscal cliff at the end of next month.Economists say the combination of steep tax increases and spending cuts would significantly cut economic growth and likely push the U.S. back into recession and damage other economies around the world.New York indexes also erased early lows as the Dow Jones industrials surged 106.98 points to 12,985.11.The Nasdaq climbed 23.99 points to 2,991.78 while the S&P 500 index added 10.99 points to 1,409.93.Adding to optimism was a remark from President Barack Obama that he believes that members of both parties can reach a “framework” on a debt-cutting deal before Christmas.And an administration official says two of President Barack Obama’s top negotiators on the “fiscal cliff” will meet separately on Thursday with top political leaders.Still, analysts questioned whether a comprehensive deal can be reached this late in the year.“I think people who anticipate a resolution prior to year-end are being very optimistic because just right off the bat, many of the legislators don’t really see themselves as having mandate since they have been defeated,” said Norman Raschkowan, North American strategist at Mackenzie Financial Corp.“The most likely case is that they establish the framework for an agreement and they announce sort of the bare bones of that framework prior to year-end with the expectation that by the end of January or early February, a detailed plan would be put in place.”The turnaround on the TSX was led by a gain of almost two per cent in the mining sector as December copper also pared early sharp losses to close one cent lower to US$3.52 a pound. Lundin Mining (TSX:LUN) rose 25 cents to $5.28.Inmet Mining Corp. is rejecting an unsolicited takeover offer worth $4.9 billion by First Quantum Minerals Ltd. The miner (TSX:IMN) says First Quantum (TSX:FM) offered 50 per cent of the deal’s value, or up to $2.46 billion, in cash and the other 50 per cent in the Vancouver miner’s shares. Inmet shares soared $9.20 or 17.42 per cent to $9.20 while First Quantum lost 34 cents to $20.80.The gold sector also turned positive, up about 0.5 per cent as December gold on the New York Mercantile Exchange dropped $25.80 to US$1,716.50 an ounce. Centerra Gold (TSX:CG) advanced 26 cents to C$9.32 while Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) improved by 36 cents to $39.31.The energy sector rose almost 0.4 per cent while January crude dropped 69 cents to US$86.49 a barrel. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) gained 32 cents to C$28.24.Imperial Oil (TSX:IMO) shares were up 47 cents to $42.98 as it said it will invest $1.55 billion to acquire a half interest in the assets of Celtic Exploration Ltd. (TSX:CLT). The Calgary-based company is currently in the process of being fully acquired by Imperial parent ExxonMobil Canada Ltd., which announced a $3.1-billion bid for Celtic in October. Celtic shares were unchanged at $26.Utilities led TSX losses with TransAlta Corp. (TSX:TA) down 51 cents to $14.91.The tech sector was also negative but Research In Motion Ltd. (TSX:RIM) shares turned positive, up 30 cents to $11 on heavy volume of 8.4 million shares. The stock had been lower amid word that it had lost a contract dispute over the use of Nokia patents. A Swedish arbitrator has ruled that RIM breached a contract between the companies and is not entitled to manufacture or sell wireless local access network (WLAN) products without first reaching a royalties agreement with Nokia.Elsewhere in the tech sector, CGI Group Inc. (TSX:GIB.A) dropped 93 cents to $23.12 as the company posted a net loss of just under $170 million or 58 cents per diluted share in the latest quarter, compared with a profit of $69.6 million or 26 cents per share in the year-earlier period. Revenue rose to $1.61 billion from just over $1 billion in the fiscal 2011 quarter. Ex-items, the company said it would have had net earnings of $100 million or 37 cents per share, down from 39 cents per share a year earlier.In other corporate news, shares in Quebec-based engineering firm SNC-Lavalin fell 92 cents to $39.99 after the province’s anti-corruption squad arrested former CEO Pierre Duhaime. He faces charges of fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud and use of false documents.There was also data that showed that U.S. sales of new homes dipped 0.3 per cent in October to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 368,000, below expectations of 382,000. Also,the September sales pace was slower than initially thought. Still, house sales are 20.4 per cent higher than the same month last year, supporting other data that show the housing market recovering. read more

Members of the OSU women’s volleyball team huddle during a game against Lipscomb on Dec. 5 in Lexington, Ky., during the 1st round of the NCAA Tournament. OSU won, 3-0.Credit: Chris Slack / Lantern photographerLEXINGTON, Ky. — Heading into a match against Lipscomb, Ohio State women’s volleyball coach Geoff Carlston had faced the Bisons once in his tenure at OSU, and won. Now he can say he’s 2-0.The Buckeyes (22-11) swept Lipscomb (25-20, 25-14, 25-18) in the first round of the NCAA tournament Friday night, and now have less than a day to prepare for their next opponent.“I thought we played great defense, which we knew we needed to do because they’re such a great defensive team,” Carlston said. “So it was a really good match. Obviously I’m really happy and excited we’re moving on.”In the first two sets alone, the Buckeyes had 16 blocks total, while the Bisons (21-9) had zero. Sophomore middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe totaled for six in those two sets before finishing the night with 10, which is a career-high. Senior setter Taylor Sherwin tallied six total blocks, which was the second highest between the two teams.Freshman outside hitter Luisa Schirmer led all players in kills with 12 and added eight digs. With this being her first NCAA tournament action, she said she was glad her teammates were behind her all the way.“I (felt) full confidence with my team behind me,” Schirmer said. “And I think that’s a great attitude going into our next match.”Senior outside hitter Erin Sekinger tallied 10 kills, which was tied for the second-most kills in the match.Since the Buckeyes played at 5 p.m. on Friday in Lexington, Ky., they have a chance to scout their next potential opponent live.“As a team we’re going to go and watch both teams, see what they do and how they play,” Sekinger said.In addition to her six blocks, Sherwin had a game-high 32 assists on the night and added nine digs, while sophomore libero Valeria León had a game-high 17 digs and had the Buckeyes two lone service aces.With a game-high 25 blocks, the Buckeyes are looking to carry over their defense into Saturday’s game.“I think if we take our style of play that we played tonight into our next match, tomorrow night, I think that will help us and we can build from that,” Sekinger said.Bison senior outside hitter Lauren Ford was the lone Bison to score double-digit kills with 10. Freshman setter Kayla Ostrom assisted on 28 of her teams 31 kills.The Buckeyes are scheduled to play the winner of No. 13 Kentucky and the Horizon League champions Oakland. The match is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at Memorial Coliseum. read more
Anna Winters hugs a student from the Mt. Edgecumbe Preschool at the Pioneer Home in Sitka. (Rose/KCAW)Loneliness and isolation can be a big problem for seniors in Alaska. Many older people are often far away from family members, and kids are far away from their grandparents. In Sitka, the local Pioneer Home for seniors has found a solution for both problems: housing a local preschool right next door.Tucked away behind the Sitka Pioneer Home, which provides state-run senior housing and care, is a cozy yellow building with an entryway filled with tiny jackets and boots. These old nurses’ quarters now house Mt. Edgecumbe Preschool.Twice a week, the students visit residents. They read stories and sing songs to the elders. Together the young children and the older adults solve puzzles and play games, like balloon toss.“There it went! Get it! Get it!” called Pioneer Home resident Anna Winters to a small, giggling child who ran after a red balloon.“I love to see those kids come in every week,” Winters said, laughing. “It’s fun, and they give us a little craziness that we can take, too!”A little craziness, and a lot of affection.“Well, we’ve got some of them that hug, and I like huggers!” she said. “And they make you feel good. They make you feel like a human. They make you feel so good, inside and outside.”Resident Galen Insteness said he appreciates story time because it helps him combat boredom. “They keep us entertained all the time. In fact, it’s kind of surprising how disciplined they are. Pretty sharp, I think.”Pioneer Home Activities coordinator Skye Workman said the change she witnesses in residents when the children arrive is palpable. The interaction “brings a connectedness, builds relationships, builds joy and growth. The benefits from that are just so huge. It’s kind of immeasurable.”Students from the Mt. Edgecumbe Preschool perform for seniors at the Pioneer Home in Sitka. (Rose/KCAW)It makes the residents feel more connected to the larger community as well, even if they don’t have any family in town. Research shows that increased socialization with can decrease loneliness and reduce the mental decline that often happens when living in a nursing facility.Mt. Edgecumbe Preschool has existed for 30 years but has only been connected to the Pioneer Home since 2003. Preschool director Lori Whitmill said the shared time isn’t just important for the residents. Her students gain a lot from it too.“Our main hope is that they feel comfortable and get a sense of appreciation and enjoyment for older people as competent, interesting, fun human beings,” she said. “So we can do our little part in combating ageism that’s so prevalent in our culture.”Some research suggests kids who have early contact with elders are less likely to engage in stereotyping based on age. Whitmill said that many children in Sitka have grandparents in the Lower 48, which makes them a bit unfamiliar with the aging process.“A lot of them do start our program feeling a little nervous, not sure if they want to do it,” she said. “But now, at this point, our kids are excited if it’s their turn to go, and disappointed if it’s not, so I think we’re making progress.”She said that after a recent outing to the senior home, she overheard two of her students chatting. “One of the children said, ‘Did you notice how happy the grandmas and grandpas were?’ And another one said, ‘Yeah. I think they really like us.’”Resident Anna Winters definitely likes them. After the balloon toss, she was sad to see the children go. “Come back again, please!” she called to the kids as they ran about yelling goodbye.Winters didn’t need to worry.

Justin Sullivan/Getty ImagesA week after Hurricane Harvey swept through southern Texas in August, the streets of Katy, Texas, were still flooded. People in Puerto Rico and the Southeastern U.S. who were affected by the hurricanes are among those who may have extra time to enroll for 2018 health plans.Attempted murder. National humiliation. Legislative victories and defeats. Confusion. There has never been a year in Congress like 2017. Some members from Texas contributed to the drama, while others tried to lay low and avoid the spotlight at all costs. Here are the 18 days that shook the Texas delegation, and the members who lived it: Jan. 20: President Trump is sworn into officePresident Donald Trump took office as the 45th president of the United States and a new era in American politics began. The night before, thousands of jubilant Texans – mostly Republicans who were eager to return to power – attended the Texas State Society Ball. “Any time there’s a peaceful transfer of power, it’s good,” U.S. Rep. Randy Weber, R-Friendswood, said that night. But not everyone was pleased.Democratic members of Congress from Texas were split on whether to even attend the swearing in. Some, like Joaquin Castro of San Antonio, Lloyd Doggettof Austin and Al Green of Houston, boycotted the ceremony as a matter of personal conscience, while others said attending was a duty of the job. Jan. 21: The Women’s MarchA day later, the tone of Washington completely changed. Hundreds of thousands of women marched through the capital city proclaiming opposition to Trump. U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston, was there in Washington along with dozens of other female members of Congress. Back home, women filled the streets of Austin, Dallas and Houston. Even the most plugged-in Democratic insiders were perplexed by the turnout. Was it truly organic, organized by political laywomen, or were there organizing forces behind it? The former appears to be true – setting the tone of a new era feminism and a bottom-up political activism that took hold for the rest of the year.Jan 29: Trump implements travel banOn the second weekend of the Trump administration, the president implemented an executive order banning travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Texas members watched in shock as the disorganized execution of the abrupt policy shift led to people stranded and detained at airports across the country. Democrats and U.S. Rep. Will Hurd, R-Helotes, reacted with fierce criticism. But most Texas Republicans watched on in silence.The weekend set the table for what was ahead: Congress would spend much of the rest of the year scrambling to react to surprise chaos.March 2: The U.S. Senate confirms Rick Perry as Secretary of EnergyWhile Rick Perry continued to serve as Texas governor for years after his infamous 2011 “oops” gaffe, much of the nation had not moved on from that moment. After his tenure as governor ended in 2015, a stint on Dancing With the Stars only furthered his image as a less-than-serious politician. But his return to the national stage during his confirmation hearing was that of a studious nominee. The Senate rewarded him with a bipartisan 62-37 confirmation vote. Yet in the volatile Trump era, Perry has mostly served as an afterthought. His fellow Texan, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, is a subject of far more intrigue. The reviews on Perry’s tenure this far are mixed – but his Senate confirmation suggested that the political world had finally moved on from his 2011 embarrassment. March 29: Beto O’Rourke runs for SenateU.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a relatively obscure third-term Democrat from El Paso, threw his hat in the ring to take on U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018. O’Rourke, who pledged he wouldn’t take PAC money or allow pollsters to shape his messaging, spent the year blanketing every pocket of the state – even the conservative strongholds.Democrats in Washington would love to take down Cruz, but their priority heading into 2018 is defending their own incumbents elsewhere in the country. Cruz is postured to blast O’Rourke with an organizational and fundraising juggernaut, and in-state Republicans insist: Texas is still Texas. Can O’Rourke win in 2018? The conventional wisdom is probably not. But stranger things happened in 2017.April 6: Mike Conaway takes over House investigation into Russian election interferenceFor years, U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway of Midland was something of a quiet power player – and mostly unknown to the public. A CPA by training, he built up a reputation as a diligent investigator of ethical wrong-doing in his party’s campaigns and within Congress. A longtime member of the House Intelligence Committee, his national profile rose after leadership called on him to take over an investigation that had spiraled into dysfunction under House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes of California. The investigation continues to stumble – particularly when Nunes enters the fray – but Conaway has proved to be a soothing presence and calmed the waters with Democrats. He is one of several Texans serving on intelligence committees – U.S. Sen. John Cornyn and U.S. Rep Will Hurd were appointed to the Senate and House committees earlier in the year. On the Democratic side, U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro uses his own post on the committee to hammer away at the Trump administration on cable news.April 7: U.S. Senate confirms Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme CourtThe consequences of the U.S. Senate confirmation of Gorsuch will be long-lasting. Following U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia’s death in Texas last year, the extended political debate leading up to Gorsuch’s confirmation poisoned the well with Democrats, who continue to cry foul that the Republican-majority Senate refused to hold hearings for former President Obama’s nominee for the seat. Then, Senate Republicans changed the rules to allow for a simple-majority confirmation for Gorsuch. Both Cornyn and Cruz supported him in the vote.But the longest-lasting effect is likely to be Gorsuch himself. At 50, he is a young justice, likely poised to influence court decisions for decades to come.May 17: Robert Mueller is appointed special counsel into the Russia investigationWith Washington aflame over President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, there was increasing pressure on Congress to expand its investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Mueller, a revered former FBI director, took over the investigation for the Justice Department. Texas members from both parties immediately praised the appointment. Democrats were clearly eager to learn what happened, and Republicans privately suggested the special counsel would take some of the pressure off of Congress on the volatile issue.June 14: Texas Republicans escape a shooter at baseball practice.A pleasant morning morphed into a nightmare for members of the Republican Congressional baseball team, as a politically deranged gunman unleashed gunfire on members and staffers alike in suburban Virginia.Conaway was there, as were U.S. Reps. Roger Williams of Austin and Joe Bartonof Ennis. Players jumped on Barton’s young son to protect him. Williams suffered an ankle injury as he dove into the dugout and one of his own staffers was seriously injured. U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady, R-The Woodlands, left just minutes before the shooting began, but spent the rest of the day at the hospital watching over his injured friend and roommate, U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.July 28: GOP health care overhaul dies in the U.S. SenateWith a turn of a thumb, U.S. Sen. John McCain killed a Republican attempt to dismantle former President Obama’s 2010 health care law.The move capped seven months of GOP efforts, which included various Texans whipping votes, negotiating and trying to cut deals, including Cornyn, Cruz, Brady and U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess of Lewisville. Aug. 25: Hurricane Harvey hits TexasIt’s a rare sight to see the swaggering Texas delegation brought to its knees, but Texans returned to Congress this fall subdued and looking for federal government support as the state reeled from the disastrous storm. There remains tension with northeastern members, who remember Texas Republicans voting against federal aid in the aftermath of the 2012 superstorm Sandy. And tempers have flared between the delegation and Gov. Greg Abbott.Despite rank and power in numbers, the Texas delegation still struggles to secure funding to rebuild months later. Oct. 31, Nov. 2, Nov. 7, Nov. 13: Texans rush to retire from CongressU.S. Rep. Sam Johnson of Richardson came out early this year to announce his retirement. And O’Rourke announced plans to run for U.S. Senate. But otherwise, for 10 months, the Texas political class wondered: Will anyone else hang it up? And then the floodgates opened beginning on Halloween, with U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Dallas, announcing his retirement. That was soon followed by U.S. Reps. Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio, Ted Poe, R-Houston and Gene Green, D-Houston. Barton would soon follow due to a personal scandal.Texas is on track to lose at least 156 years of Congressional seniority. But with challengers of every stripe coming out of the woodwork to run for the newly open seats, it’s near-certain that the new delegation in 2019 will be less white and less male. Nov. 22: Nude photo of Joe Barton makes the rounds of the internetWhile Congress was on Thanksgiving recess, the unthinkable happened: a nude photo of a senior member was posted on the internet. Texas Republicans were stunned and wondered what the implications would be for the apparent victim, Barton. The dean of the delegation apologized for infidelity, and at first blush he was lumped into the national conversation of sexual misconduct. But some in Congress – even die-hard liberals – privately expressed sympathy for Barton. The whole incident concerned many in the political class. The notion that a member of Congress could be a revenge porn victim led many political insiders to wonder if American political discourse had crossed a new and darker threshold. Even so, Barton lost local political support back home and with some members of the delegation. After Thanksgiving, he reluctantly announced his retirement.Dec. 17: U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold retires from CongressThe late-fall uproar over sexual harassment in prominent workplaces brought down Farenthold, who had previously survived allegations of inappropriate conduct in his office. The Corpus Christi Republican was but one of many members of Congress from both sides of the aisle who saw their political careers essentially die over night amid harassment charges. The Capitol entered the Christmas holiday on edge – wondering who would fall next.Dec. 20: The Republican tax overhaul passes both chambersAfter a year of legislative disappointment, Congress passed the largest overhaul of the American tax code in a generation. The tax cuts were controversial – they’re likely to run up the national deficit to newer heights – but two Texans were credited with effectively moving the bill: Brady, the U.S. House Ways and Means Chairman, and Cornyn.

00:00 /04:03 Share However, immigration lawyers and advocates say the government is denying a migrant a right to a trial, which gives almost total authority to immigration enforcement. And agents are known to make mistakes. “As Elvin’s case shows there’s very little opportunity to address any errors that might be made by Border Patrol or by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) when they’re deciding to place someone in expedited removal proceedings because there’s virtually no check on that authority,” said Julie Pasch, an attorney with the Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative.Pasch said that she worries immigration officers won’t fully verify how long someone has been here — a key factor in expedited removal. She said that’s why lawyers are advising immigrants to carry paperwork, like utility bills or children’s birth certificates, as proof if they’ve been in the United States more than two years.U.S. Department of Homeland Security data compiled by the American Immigration CouncilThe use of expedited removal has grown since it was first created in 1996.Expedited removal was used to deport over 103,000 migrants in 2017, according to Department of Homeland Security data. That number will likely climb with this expansion, Pasch said. “Where is daddy?”Isabel was expecting her third child with her husband Elvin when their lives unexpectedly started to unravel. Elvin, a welder living in Houston, had gone to Laredo last December for work. On his way back home, Customs and Border Protections officials stopped his bus and pulled Elvin off. Officers questioned him for hours, according to Elvin.He said they presented paperwork and a photo of another Honduran man with his same name who had already been deported. He told them that wasn’t him — they were wrong. Then, border agents asked Elvin other questions, like if he drove an Infiniti and had a pending immigration petition.Elvin said, yes, that was him. “I’ve never been deported,” said Elvin. “I’ve lived in this country since 2007.” But in documents shared with Houston Public Media, Border Patrol agents wrote down that Elvin said he crossed the river into the United States near Laredo five days before, on December 15, 2018, making him eligible for expedited removal.But Elvin hadn’t recently crossed the border. What’s more, he had a strong case for staying legally in the United States and the right to plead his case before a judge. Along with his kids and father being citizens, Elvin already had a petition pending to gain legal status. Houston Public Media reached out to Customs and Border Protection for comment and they have not responded.Elvin refused to sign any papers, was locked away and sent to a detention center in San Antonio. Back in Houston, his wife Isabel didn’t hear from him for five days until she finally received a call from him: her husband was in trouble.Courtesy of ElvinIsabel, two months pregnant, with her husband Elvin and their two kids.Isabel spent thousands from their family savings on an immigration lawyer. But every legal action failed.Meanwhile, Isabel’s kids missed their dad as she tried to comfort them.“When my son woke up in the morning he was asking, ‘Dad didn’t give me a kiss… Where is Daddy because he didn’t give me kiss?” Isabel said. “Remembering those words from him, that breaks my heart.” As Elvin was transferred from one detention center to another, he said he went hungry a lot, but the worst pain was psychological. “I spent day and night crying,” Elvin said. Locked away in a tiny cell in an Illinois county jail, his mind was racing. At this point, several weeks had passed, and he was still facing deportation. “It’s all over,” he said he would say to himself. “What am I going to do now? They’re going to send me to my country. My kids are going to stay here. Who is going to help them?”In Houston, Isabel had gone through all their savings, and she couldn’t make rent. With no income, they had to abandon most of their furniture and belongings and move away from Houston to be with her relatives in Tucson, Arizona.All was lost, they thought. Then a team of lawyers with the Immigrant Justice Center learned about Elvin’s case and filed a special motion. Days before his flight to Honduras, they showed a federal judge proof Elvin had been living here: his marriage certificate, tax returns, a credit card statement and other documents.The judge canceled his deportation.“I screamed,” Isabel said, because she was so happy. After two months in detention, Elvin was released in February and reunited with his family in Arizona. Moving onEven though Elvin narrowly missed this fast-tracked deportation, he still feels the ripple effects.He has an immigration court case in Texas now, so sometimes he stays far from his family in Arizona to go to court in Houston. He said his family plans to move back to Texas, but they have to rebuild their lives from scratch.And since Houston Public Media first reported this story, Elvin said that he was detained a second time by border officials — days before his wife was expecting their third child. Elvin was held for several hours despite showing official immigration documents. It’s another example, he said, of just how much power federal agents have. X Courtesy of ElvinElvin embraces his two kids after being in immigrant detention for two months.Elvin came to the United States 12 years ago from Honduras. He’s undocumented, but he has a strong case to stay here because of family ties, including three citizen children and a citizen father. He’s not a person that should be in the fast-track for deportation — a process known as expedited removal, which has historically applied only to recent border-crossers. But last December, Border Patrol agents detained Elvin at a checkpoint and claimed he had recently crossed the border, making him subject to the fast-tracked deportation process. It wasn’t until a federal judge considered the evidence showing Elvin had lived in the United States for years that Elvin was freed from a months-long detention and imminent deportation. This fast-tracked deportation process is now expanding beyond the border.Previously, federal agents only used expedited removal if an immigrant was found within 100 miles of the border and had crossed within the past two weeks. Now, the Trump administration will let agents use it to deport anyone who crossed up to two years ago and is living anywhere in the United States.While Elvin’s case is rare, it shows how much can go wrong when it’s an immigrant’s word versus border officials and there’s little room for outside scrutiny. With other immigration cases, a judge will review the situation. But with expedited removal, the power to deport is left up to immigration enforcement officials. Border officials use the process to quickly send border-crossers without valid asylum claims back to their home countries — and not add to the growing immigration case backlog.
