Residents of Pembroke Pines and the town of Southwest Ranches have voiced opposition to the federally funded and privately managed detention center since Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced it had chosen the Southwest Ranches/Corrections Corporation of America proposal in June

N.C. ultrasound law challenged by ACLU, Planned Parenthood

N.C. ultrasound law challenged by ACLU, Planned Parenthood

Last week a coalition of civil rights and reproductive rights advocates filed a lawsuit against the state of North Carolina’s law requiring abortion providers to show women an ultrasound and describe the images in detail four hours before having an abortion, even if the woman does not want to see the images. According to a press release , the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of North Carolina Legal Foundation, Planned Parenthood Health Systems, Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina and the Center for Reproductive Rights allege that “the new law violates the rights of health care providers and women seeking abortions.” Gov. Bev Perdue vetoed the legislation when it reached her desk, but the state Legislature was able to override her veto.

Proposal aims to increase range Mexicans can travel inside New Mexico

Proposal aims to increase range Mexicans can travel inside New Mexico

After watching businesses in their neighboring states profit for years, businesspeople and officials along the Mexico-New Mexico border impressed it upon their beltway representatives that they, too, finally wanted to cash in on what has not been coming their way. Meaning: extend the traveling distance into which Mexican nationals can penetrate New Mexico, so that they can bring their cash to cities like Las Cruces, Lordsburg, and Deming. In response, Senators Tom Udall and Jeff Bingaman have proposed legislation — the Southern New Mexico Economic Development Act — asking for an extension of the 25-mile zone in which Mexican citizens can travel into New Mexico to shop, to conduct business, to visit family and friends to 75 miles.
