Q&A on push to treat young immigrants as refugees

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 00:30

In this June 20, 2014 photo, a woman is helped from one boxcar to another, as Central American migrants wait atop the train they were riding north, hours after it suffered a minor derailment in a remote wooded area outside Reforma de Pineda, Chiapas state, Mexico. Many migrants who say they are fleeing criminal violence generally are not eligible for political asylum, which is reserved for groups persecuted for their beliefs or identities. U.N. officials say there is no way of forcing the U.S. and Mexico to accept Central Americans as refugees, but a broad-based change in terminology could bring pressure on the two countries to do more. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Pressure continues to mount on the federal government to treat as refugees the thousands of children traveling alone from Central America and crossing the border into the U.S.

Bill allowing parole for young offenders advances in Massachusetts

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 23:54
By Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - Massachusetts legislators passed a bill that would grant people convicted of first-degree murder while under age 18 a chance at parole after serving at least 20 years of their sentence. The bill, which was approved late Tuesday, comes after rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court and Massachusetts' highest court that found imposing life sentences without parole on juvenile offenders to be unconstitutional. Governor Deval Patrick, a Democrat, has not indicated if he will sign it. Supporters of the Senate bill noted it does not guarantee parole to juvenile offenders but offers them the chance to plead their cases before a board.
