Trump’s Immigration Order Separates A Boy Urgently Needing Surgery From His Family

An Iraqi child sent to the U.S. for treatment after suffering serious burns at a refugee camp has reportedly been separated from his family by President Trump’s executive order barring travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations. One-year-old Dilbreen is due to undergo surgery this later this week, reports CBS Boston. His parents had obtained visas to travel to the U.S. to be with him, but were told the permits were suddenly revoked. Attorneys are now trying to help the family get a special waiver so they might arrive in time for their child’s operation, scheduled Feb. 5. “So they are stranded in Iraq,” said Carrie Schuchardt, from the Massachusetts social services organization House of Peace, where the family were supposed to be staying. “The child is here. The need for surgery is pressing.” The boy had suffered severe burns last year when a heater exploded in the refugee camp his family were sheltering in. He was rushed by an aid group to Shriner’s Hospital in Boston for urgent treatment, accompanied by his father, according to the report. While he stayed in the U.S. with a family in Michigan following the initial surgery, Dilbreen’s father returned to Iraq for the birth of the boy’s little brother, according to CBS. On Tuesday, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey filed a lawsuit against the President challenging his immigration order, saying the ban was “harmful, discriminatory, and unconstitutional.” The executive order, which was signed last Friday, has since sparked other litigation, as well as furious protests across the country and overseas.

3 Things The Environmental Movement Must Do During The Trump Presidency

Unleashing the Power of Women and Clean Cooking

By Wanjira Mathai, Director of the Partnerships for Women’s Entrepreneurship in Renewables (wPOWER) and Alliance Advisory Council Member, and Radha Muthiah, CEO of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves One year ago this month, leaders from around the world came together and took the bold step of adopting the Sustainable Development Goals. These goals aim to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030. Together, action towards achieving these goals can fuel inclusive progress, creating ripple effects felt around the world. As global leaders met again this month in New York and plan to meet this autumn in Morocco to restate their commitment to the global development and climate goals, they must keep the focus on proven solutions that are already delivering tangible impacts, particularly for women and girls. One of these solutions is changing how people in developing countries cook. Globally, close to 3 billion people lack access to clean cookstoves and fuels. They are forced to cook using heavily-polluting solid fuels like coal, wood, and animal dung. The negative impact of these cooking methods on health, climate, and gender equality is broad and far reaching. Cooking over open fires and rudimentary cookstoves results in more than four million deaths each year, and a recent World Bank report shows that the economic impact of household air pollution—caused largely by inefficient cooking—is more than US$2 trillion. Not surprisingly, women suffer the most […]

Can Taiji Re-Brand Itself?

Image Credit: Huffington Post Images As of this writing, Taiji, Japan remains ground zero for the capture and distribution of wild dolphins to amusement parks, dolphinariums, and swim-with-dolphin programs worldwide, fetching as much as $200,000 for a trained dolphin. At the same time, Taiji is a place where hundreds of dolphins, pilot whales, false killer whales, and other dolphin species are murdered and slaughtered every year from September until March; supposedly for human consumption, but also to rid the local waters of this so-called “pest.” A slaughtered dolphin brings in only a few hundred dollars. The Government of Japan and Taiji sanctions these activities, claiming them to be a centuries-old tradition. Yet, marine animal parks only originated some 50 years ago. Activists such as Sea-shepherd and Dolphin Project among others report that the inhumane slaughters are fueled and paid for by the captive industry, that dolphin trainers stand beside the killers deciding which dolphins will live a life of cacophony, confinement, and tricks, and which will die […]
