Judge rules U.S. government must swiftly release immigrant children in detention

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/22/2015 - 15:47
By Victoria Cavaliere LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge on Friday ordered the government to swiftly release immigrant children held at detention centers, affirming a July ruling that said some minors who crossed the border illegally were being detained in violation of a long-standing settlement. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee in Los Angeles gave the administration of President Barack Obama until Oct. 23 to comply with her order to release hundreds of unauthorized immigrant children, and in some cases their mothers, "without unnecessary delay." Gee's ruling comes amid debate by U.S. presidential candidates over illegal immigration and follows an influx of immigrants from Central America across the U.S.-Mexico border.

Public plazas in New York's Times Square bring business, chaos

New York City's Times Square is notorious for its fast talkers, street walkers and con-men mingling among artists scrounging tips from tourists who gawk at themselves on jumbo video screens or take selfies with accommodating cops on horses. Much of the action takes place in pedestrian plazas carved into Broadway, souvenirs of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg's efforts in 2009 to make parts of the city more accessible to the public. It all contributes to a boom in Time Square's retail business and billboard advertising, plus fewer traffic accidents.
