Memes, New York, and Taken: Hundreds of immigrants will get to resubmit DACA renewals originally rejected as "late" It's the Trump administration's biggest reversal on immigration policy to date. Updated by Dara Lind | dara@vox.com | Nov 16, 2017, 11:43am EST Y TWEET SHARE 🚨 IMPORTANT DACA SHARE Many immigrants who did everything right to reapply for one last round of protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — but missed the deadline due to circumstances beyond their control — are going to get another chance after reporting by Vox and others about how unfairly the administration enforced the deadline. The Trump administration initially claimed that 4,000 immigrants missed the October 5 deadline to apply for one last two-year extension of protections under the DACA program, which the administration announced in September would be shut down over the next six months (with an official end date of March 5, 2018). But reporting in recent days by Vox and the New York Times showed that an untold number of those applications had been mailed well in advance of the deadline — and had been delayed due to a mysterious weeks-long Postal Service slowdown, or had been dropped in a US Citizenship and Immigration Services mailbox on October 5 but not picked up by a courier service until the next day. On Wednesday night, the Department of Homeland Security announced that those DACA recipients will be allowed to reapply for renewal. The Trump administration isn’t guaranteeing that these applications will be approved. But it’s at least agreeing to consider applications it had previously rejected out of hand. That could mean another two years of protection from deportation for hundreds, maybe even thousands, of immigrants. And it marks the first major reversal on immigration policy from an administration that has generally taken pride in its hardline stance. USCIS will contact some immigrants who were affected — but others will have to contact the government themselves

Memes, Respect, and Slick: 1312 SQ VETERAN Thank you. We Are Veterans - We've been called Grunts and Jarheads, Squids and Swabbies, Fly boys and G.I. These were not derogatory terms. These were term of endearment and respect between us. We were Trackers, Tankers, Artillery and Gunners, Fuelers, Mechanics, Pilots and Drivers. Some have seen the horrors of war, while others served between conflicts. There are those who have never heard a shot fired in anger, while others have had those angry shots fired at them. Stories of the scars are proclaimed loudly by some and talked about in muted conversation by others. There are those who have put it all behind them and those who wish they could forget and that the nightmares would stop. Whether their breast is covered with "fruit salad" or a single ribbon bar, the crossed rifles of an expert or the "toilet bowl" of a beginner. Our uniforms were all different. We had greens, blues, whites and cracker jacks. We either wore stripes or bars. Some had rockers while occasionally we seen a "slick sleeve" standing in fear a SGT Major with eight hash marks. Their epaulets were adorned with everything from "butter bars" to glistening in the sun with four stars - It don't matter in which branch they chose to serve, despite their MOS, whether or not they shed their blood for a cause greater than themselves, they (we) all share one common title, VETERAN. The eleventh day of the eleven month is set aside to honor those who have served. Those who answered a calling that not all have heard. Those who would lay down their lives if that is what it took - Those who wore a uniform that looked like the one worn by thousands of others before and after them. If you answered the call, wore the uniform, stood tall during colors and still shed a tear during the National Anthem, may I join millions of other Americans on this day and say, Thank You and Happy Veterans Day.

Donald Trump, Lawyer, and Memes: Documents Turned Over to Investigators Show Trump Had More Contact with Russia During Campaign @balleralert Documents Turned Over to Investigators Show Trump Had More Contact with Russia During Campaign -blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Associates of Donald Trump and his company just turned in documents showing they had unreported contact with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. Federal investigators have confiscated the documents. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of the instances involves Trump's personal attorney and business colleague exchanging emails weeks prior to the Republican National Convention about the lawyer possibly attending an economic conference in Russia, where elite Russian financial and government leaders would be attendance. Amongst all the names, President Vladimir Putin was included. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Another situation involved Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, again. In 2015, Cohen received a proposal for a Moscow residential project from a company founded by a billionaire who once served in the upper house of the Russian parliament. This marks the second time for a Trump-branded Moscow project that's been delivered to the company. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, Cohen declined the invitation to the economic conference saying it would be difficult to attend so close to the GOP convention. He also rejected the Moscow building plan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nevertheless , the information about the interactions has been provided to congressional committees as well as special counsel Robert S. Mueller III as they investigate whether Trump associates coordinated with Russian efforts to interfere in the U.S. election, according to people familiar with the inquiries.

Baller Alert, Elizabeth Eckford, and Memes: Today Marks The 60th Anniversary of the Little Rock, Arkansas Nine @balleralert Today Marks The 60th Anniversary of the Little Rock, Arkansas Nine- blogged by @niksofly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's more than an honor to celebrate those who sacrificed their anonymity to serve as catalysts to promote change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On September 25, 1957, nine adolescents were caught between state and federal governments and authorities as they were attempting to desegregate Central High. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thelma Mothershed Wair, Minnijean Brown Trickey, Terrence Roberts, Carlotta Walls LaNier, Gloria Ray Karlmark, Ernest Green, Elizabeth Eckford and Melba Pattillo Beals were escorted into Central by U.S. Army Troops per President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Met with opposition from Arkansas governor Orval Faubus who called in the National Guard, these phenomenal individuals change the trajectory of history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Greeted by segregationist mobs and opposers, these nine persevered. Today we, Baller Alert salutes the Little Rock Nine. Their sacrifice changed history and although we have a bit further to go, their selflessness has brought us thus far. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At this time BA will like to acknowledge the passing of one of the catalysts. As the Nine embark upon the 60th anniversary, one member will be with the unit in spirit. Jefferson Thomas passed on September 5, 2010 from pancreatic cancer.
