Right and Left on Trump’s DACA Decision

Mr. Erickson admits that the president “probably does not have constitutional motives for undoing DACA.” That doesn’t change the fact that, according to Mr. Erickson, the program is unconstitutional. And while he supports DACA in principle, he maintains that “the constitution has to override everything else,” including his personal preferences. Read more »_____Andrew C. McCarthy in National Review:“Trump should do what he should have done his first day in office. He should declare the Obama-administration guidance null and void.”The president has made the DACA problem “more complicated than it needs to be,” writes Mr. […]

For One Family in Houston, an Overwhelming Start to Recovery

HOUSTON — She couldn’t sleep. Not now.Kris Ford-Amofa lay next to her husband in a spare bedroom at her sister’s house, thinking once more about the brown water that had slithered under the front door of the first home she had ever owned. The water that swirled around her three children as the family fled, wading up City Green Trail to seek refuge at a neighbor’s house. […]

Trump Promises ‘100 Percent’ Support to Storm-Battered South

“It has nothing to do with it, really,” Mr. Trump said. “I think this is separate.”Still, he reiterated his shutdown threat, although he said, “I hope that’s not necessary.” He also insisted that Mexico would ultimately pay for the border wall, a prospect officials there have repeatedly rejected.VideoTrump Defends Pardoning Sheriff ArpaioIn a joint news conference with the president of Finland, President Trump defended his controversial pardoning of the former Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio.By THE NEW YORK TIMES on Publish Date August 28, 2017.Photo by Al Drago for The New York Times.Watch in Times Video »embed “One way or another, Mexico will pay for the wall,” Mr. Trump said, adding, “It may be through reimbursement.”Mr. Trump also mounted a vigorous defense of his decision last week to pardon Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff convicted of criminal contempt for his tactics in hunting down and jailing undocumented immigrants.“A lot of people think it was the right thing to do,” Mr. Trump said, claiming that he had timed the announcement on a Friday night while Harvey was bearing down on Texas to maximize attention to the decision.“I assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally,” Mr. Trump said.He rattled off a prepared list of people Democratic presidents had pardoned before him, including Bill Clinton’s pardoning of Marc Rich and Barack Obama’s commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence.“I stand by my pardon of Sheriff Joe,” Mr. […]

Trump Pardons Joe Arpaio, Who Became Face of Crackdown on Illegal Immigration

“I won’t do it tonight because I don’t want to cause any controversy,” the president said Tuesday night at a campaign-style rally in Phoenix, after asking, “Was Sheriff Joe convicted for doing his job?”Continue reading the main story“I’ll make a prediction: I think he’s going to be just fine,” Mr. Trump said.Mr. Arpaio, 85, served for 24 years as sheriff of Maricopa County — which includes Phoenix — building a national reputation for harsh conditions in his county jail, and for his campaign against undocumented immigrants.Mr. Arpaio had touted himself as “America’s toughest sheriff,” making inmates wear pink underwear and serving jail food that at least some prisoners called inedible. He was also at the forefront of the so-called birther movement that aimed to investigate President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.The criminal conviction grew out of a lawsuit filed a decade ago charging that the sheriff’s office regularly violated the rights of Latinos, stopping people based on racial profiling, detaining them based solely on the suspicion that they were in the country illegally and turning them over to the immigration authorities.A federal district judge hearing the case ordered Mr. Arpaio in 2011 to stop detaining people based solely on suspicion of their immigration status, when there was no evidence that a state law had been broken. But the sheriff insisted that his tactics were legal and that he would continue employing them.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storySign Up for the Race/Related NewsletterJoin a deep and provocative exploration of race with a diverse group of New York Times journalists.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Thousands of Texas Inmates Evacuated From Prisons Ahead of Floods

PhotoPrison inmates in Rosharon, Tex., were evacuated by bus on Saturday before expected flooding in the area.Credit Texas Department of Criminal JusticeThousands of inmates were being evacuated on Saturday from three prison facilities in Rosharon, Texas, as the Brazos River there continued to rise under heavy rains from Tropical Storm Harvey.The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said that about 4,500 inmates would be transported from the Ramsey, Terrell and Stringfellow units in Rosharon, which is just south of Houston, to other facilities in East Texas.The prisoners were being transported by bus and accompanied by correctional officers and other staff.“We’re doing everything we can to make sure everybody’s safe while the evacuation process is being carried out,” said Robert Hurst, a public information officer with the criminal justice department.He did not say where the prisoners would be taken, or how long the evacuation process might last.While away from Rosharon, the prisoners will “not be available for visits at the designated receiving units, but will have the ability to use the offender telephone system,” the criminal justice department said.Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 hurricane on Friday night. It was downgraded to a tropical storm on Saturday, but heavy rains and serious flooding are expected in the state’s southeast.By Friday, the criminal justice department had canceled visitations for at least 29 prisons in the vicinity of the storm’s expected path. “This is something that we prepare for each year. Our command center is operating around the clock and we stand ready,” Bryan Collier, executive director of the department, said in a statement on Facebook.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyGet the Morning Briefing by EmailWhat you need to know to start your day, delivered to your inbox Monday through Friday.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Public records show that among the inmates are Shawn Allen Berry, one of three men convicted in the racially motivated killing of James Byrd Jr., a black man who was dragged behind a car in 1998; and David Owen Brooks, who was convicted as an accomplice to Dean Corll, the perpetrator of the so-called Houston mass murders of the early 1970s.Continue reading the main story […]
