?I am a child of refugees?: New Yorkers stage tent protest of Trump travel ban
Trump?s initial travel ban was met with a swift backlash and stymied by the courts. ?We?re spending just one night here and we can always go inside if we get cold, if we get wet, but refugees don?t have that option available to them,? said Amaha Kassa, executive director of African Communities Together, as rain began to beat down on the makeshift tent city. ?Trump?s executive orders are going to cut the heart out of these programs,? said Kassa, who came to the U.S. from Ethiopia at age 4 as an asylum seeker.

Ahmed Kathrada, anti-apartheid activist and Mandela prison mate

Democrat Adam Schiff, probing Trump-Putin ties, has gone up against Russia (and Stephen Colbert) before
WASHINGTON ? Congressman Adam Schiff, increasingly the Democratic point man on the investigation into allegations of overly cozy ties between President Trump and Russia, is a soft-spoken former federal prosecutor and a critic of government surveillance who may be the only lawmaker ever to draw blood from comic Stephen Colbert ? literally. Now Schiff is locked in a tense, headline-making standoff with the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, over how to proceed with a multi-tiered investigation into Russia?s alleged interference in the 2016 election, a probe that the White House sees as a dagger aimed at Trump?s legitimacy even though Schiff hasn?t drawn blood yet.
