Action to Protect Young Immigrants Already Stumbles in Congress

Mr. Coffman, a top target for Democrats in next year’s midterm elections, had planned to circulate a “discharge petition” to force a vote on a three-year extension of DACA that he wrote with Representative Luis V. Gutiérrez, Democrat of Illinois. But he called off the action after Speaker Paul D. Ryan said he wanted a broader immigration measure that twinned enhanced border security measures with legalization for young immigrants.Mr. Ryan is planning to meet with Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic leader, as well as the heads of the Congressional Black Caucus, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus on Wednesday afternoon to discuss paths forward on DACA.The Senate Judiciary Committee had planned to hold a hearing on DACA on Wednesday but postponed the meeting at the request of the Trump administration, according to a congressional aide who was not authorized to discuss the meeting. Mr. Goodlatte said this week that he would hold no DACA hearings until border security legislation is drafted.Instead, this week the House will take up the Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act, aimed at MS-13 and other immigrant gangs, and the Legal Workforce Act to expand electronic worker verification efforts. Mr. Goodlatte said he would follow those bills with legislation dealing with immigrant agricultural workers.“We are happy to have discussions with anybody who wants to talk about what we need to do with DACA, but I would say DACA is at the end of that list, not at the beginning,” said Mr […]

Harvey Live Updates: New Worries About Storm Damage as Beaumont’s Drinking Water Shuts Off

With drinking water cut off, its river still rising, and most routes in and out of the city flooded, Beaumont suffered the worst of Texas’ hardships on Thursday, and they showed no sign of abating.Flooding shut down the pumping plants that supply water to Beaumont in the morning, prompting a hospital to transport its patients out of the city, and trucks carrying bottled water struggled to reach the largely isolated city.The Neches River surged far beyond its banks, into streets, houses and businesses in the city of almost 120,000 people 70 miles east-northeast of Houston, reaching six feet above the previous record by afternoon, the National Weather Service reported. It was projected to rise another foot by Friday afternoon.The loss of water was just one of a host of new dangers emerging in the aftermath of Harvey, a storm system that pounded southeast Texas with record rainfall for several days before blowing across Louisiana and into Mississippi. Once a Category 4 hurricane, Harvey has been downgraded to a tropical depression.A series of small explosions shook a chemical plant about 25 miles northeast of downtown Houston on Thursday and more blasts were expected, after floodwaters shut down the cooling systems that kept the chemicals stable […]

New Hazard in Storm Zone: Chemical Blasts and ‘Noxious’ Smoke

HOUSTON — A series of explosions at a flood-damaged chemical plant outside Houston on Thursday drew sharp focus on hazards to public health and safety from the city’s vast petrochemical complex as the region begins a painstaking recovery from Hurricane Harvey.The blasts at the plant, owned by the French chemical company Arkema, came after its main electrical system and backups failed, cutting off refrigeration systems that kept volatile chemicals stable. While nearby residents had been evacuated, 15 public safety officers were treated at a hospital after inhaling smoke from chemical fires that followed the explosions.The Arkema plant has been identified as one of the most hazardous in the state. Its failure followed releases of contaminants from several other area petrochemical plants and systemic breakdowns of water and sewer systems in Houston and elsewhere in the storm-struck region.The explosions — more are expected, the company said — will bring fresh scrutiny on whether these plants are adequately regulated and monitored by state and federal safety officials.The chemical plant accident came as devastation from Harvey, now a tropical depression moving into the Mississippi Valley, continued to spread across the region. The known death toll from the storm and flooding remained at 39, the authorities said.Record-breaking floods swept through Beaumont, Tex., 100 miles east of Houston, damaging the water system and leaving the city’s 120,000 residents without clean water.Faced with that prospect, one hospital, Baptist Beaumont, began to transport most of its 193 patients to other hospitals outside the city […]

At a Shelter in Texas, Desperate for Clues to What Happened Back Home

SAN ANTONIO — Michelle McGowen could live with the likelihood that her home was lost. But she was desperate to know one thing: Were Uncle Jon and Uncle Paul still alive?Stubborn and in frail health, the two men decided to anchor down with dogs and each other in their coastal Texas town of Aransas Pass. She, her two sons and their father boarded buses and fled inland ahead of the storm on Thursday, landing on cots in the gymnasium of a shuttered middle school here in San Antonio that is now home for hundreds of evacuees who fled the soaking destruction of Hurricane Harvey.As San Antonio, Dallas, Austin and other cities prepare thousands of beds for new waves of people fleeing the rising floodwaters, Ms. McGowen and those who have already found dry ground are a glimpse of the potential humanitarian emergency on the horizon. They have few clothes, no cars or way home, and are living in a haze of uncertainty, searching for answers from home as to what — and who — survived.They watch television coverage in the hopes that a drone camera or news helicopter might flit past their neighborhoods. They hunt through the social media feeds of friends who stayed behind, looking for clues on whether a neighbor’s home was wrecked or spared. They dial and redial phone numbers that go straight to voicemail, or just ring and ring.PhotoIban Martinez, center, with his mother at a temporary shelter at the George R.

In Monument Debate, Calls for an Overdue Reckoning on Race and Southern Identity

Starting in the early 2010s, a growing number of young, openly white nationalist Southerners began joining Southern nationalist organizations, primarily the Alabama-based League of the South. Mr. Griffin, an Auburn University graduate who had become radicalized by books and in online forums that had little to do with the Confederacy, was among them.These men dismissed those making a racially friendly case for the Confederacy — “rainbow confederates,” as Mr. Griffin disparagingly calls them — in favor of an unapologetic embrace of the South’s white supremacist past. “Let’s be frank,” said Matthew Heimbach, a former member of the League of the South who went on to co-found the white nationalist Traditionalist Worker Party.

Call to Remove Confederate Statues From Capitol Divides Democrats

Mr. Trump has added fuel to the debate about such monuments, writing on Twitter on Thursday, “Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments.”On Wednesday night, Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey, said he would introduce a bill to remove Confederate statues from the Capitol. But with the president plunging into the longstanding debate over the appropriate place of Civil War-era symbols in contemporary society, Mr. Schumer argued on Thursday that Mr. Trump was trying to shift the conversation away from his own response to the violence in Charlottesville.PhotoFrom left, statues of Alexander Stephens, vice president of the Confederacy and Robert E. Lee, a Confederate general, are on display in the Capitol.Credit Justin T. Gellerson for The New York Times“While it is critical that we work towards the goal of Senator Cory Booker’s legislation,” Mr. Schumer said, “we must continue to denounce and resist President Trump for his reprehensible actions.”A spokesman for Ms. […]
