Right and Left React to the F.C.C.’s Vote on Net Neutrality Rules

_____From the LeftPhotoA protest against the F.C.C. move was held in downtown Manhattan last week.Credit Sam Hodgson for The New York TimesVanessa A. Bee in Current Affairs: “There is a little-discussed alternative even better than the net neutrality status quo — a true public option!” “Even if you believe in competition and the free market generally,” writes Ms. Bee, “it’s really not a thing here.” People aren’t able to switch internet service providers easily, which explains part of the reason so many of these companies are regional monopolies. The solution, she suggests, is for state and local governments to form their own service providers and “provide faster and cheaper internet on the basis of net neutrality principles.” Read more »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.

Trump, Rejecting Calls to Stay Away, Speaks at Civil Rights Museum

Paired with a second museum that aims to document the state’s overall history, the civil rights museum has drawn praise from the movement’s veterans as an honest depiction of Mississippi’s past.Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African-American boy, was lynched in 1955 by a white mob in Money, Miss. And one of the most infamous episodes of the civil rights era took place in Philadelphia, Miss., where three civil rights activists — Michael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman — were killed while trying to register voters in the summer of 1964.Those who made a point of skipping the president’s speech — including John Lewis, the civil rights leader and Democratic congressman from Georgia — cited his equivocal remarks after the summer’s racially tinged violence in Charlottesville, Va., and described Mr […]

‘Please, God, Don’t Let Me Get Stopped’: Around Atlanta, No Sanctuary for Immigrants

She was released with an ankle monitor after telling ICE agents about her American-born children. But she still faces possible deportation.An analysis of one month of Gwinnett County jail records from this summer shows that 184 of the 2,726 people booked and charged at the jail were held for immigration authorities. Almost two-thirds of those detained for ICE had been charged with a traffic infraction such as failing to stay in their lane, speeding or driving without a license. Others were booked on charges including assault, child molestation and drug possession.Advocates for immigrants have accused officers in 287(g) counties of targeting Hispanic drivers, a claim local police have denied.“Local law enforcement is just chasing Latinos all over the place for tiny traffic infractions,” said Adelina Nicholls, the executive director of the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights.But to Butch Conway, the longtime sheriff of Gwinnett County, there is no reason his deputies should not turn in immigrants caught driving without a license. They are, after all, doubly breaking the law.“I find it offensive that they just thumb their nose at our laws and operate vehicles they are not licensed to operate,” Mr. Conway said in a 2010 interview, “on top of the fact that they are here illegally.” (Through a spokeswoman, he declined to comment for this article.)Continue reading the main storyIn nearby Cobb County, Maria Hernandez, a school janitor from Mexico, was arrested while driving home from work one night in May. An officer conducting a random license tag check, a common practice in some police departments, had determined through a state database that the tag had been suspended because the car lacked insurance.

Grassley of Iowa with Republican colleagues last month.Credit J. Scott Applewhite/Associated PressSenator Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking member of the committee, asked if Mr. Talley had ever argued a motion in Federal District Court, given that he had never tried a case.
