schriroThough not exactly a household name, Dr. Dora Schriro, a special adviser to the Department of Homeland Security until she announced her departure in September, had an outsize impact during her short tenure at DHS. In April, she issued a critical report that documented major problems in the Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention system. The number of detainees in ICE custody has doubled over the last ten years; according to Schriro’s report, that means the agency now operates the largest detention and supervised release program in the country. Schriro documented a poorly managed system that incarcerates low-risk immigrants in the same facilities as hardened criminals, provides inadequate health care and often sends immigrants to remote areas far from their families and lawyers. That report and her subsequent congressional testimony have become the basis for a major commitment by ICE to overhaul its detention system, something advocates have sought for years.

Around 4:30 p.m. in the 12000 block of the Northwest Freeway, the female robber entered the bank and pulled out a note to give to the teller.

The note was threatening and demanded money, investigators say. The teller provided the suspect with cash and she fled the bank shortly after.

No one was hurt during the incident.

you are stuck with whoever is in power. Keep your fingers crossed, cultivate “friendship” and hang on for the duration. This is called respect for national sovereignty
