How Camila Cabello Lost Some Friends and Found Her Voice

MIAMI - Camila Cabello has been in love only once. But when it comes to crushes, she's a connoisseur. The pop singer and songwriter, formerly of the girl group Fifth Harmony, has filled pages of notes on her iPhone with ruminations on the sugar rush of embryonic infatuation and its aftermath - words of hunger and grit that her fans turn into Instagram captions and scream back at her in concert. A pair of suggestive duets in the last two years, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" with Shawn Mendes and "Bad Things" with Machine Gun Kelly, have been streamed over 520 million times, according to Nielsen Music. Along with her breakout solo smash from last summer, "Havana," which has led Billboard's

Immigration agents raid 7-Eleven stores nationwide, arrest 21 people in biggest crackdown of Trump e

U.S. immigration agents raided dozens of 7-Eleven stores before dawn Wednesday and arrested 21 people in the biggest crackdown on a company suspected of hiring undocumented workers since President Donald Trump took office. Some 98 of the convenience stores nationwide — from Los Angeles to New York — were targeted by agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, whose top official described the raids as a warning to other companies that may have unauthorized employees on their payrolls. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents serve an employment audit notice at a 7-Eleven convenience store Won Jan. 10, 2018, in Los Angeles. Agents said they targeted about 100 7-Eleven stores nation

Latinos, Concerned About Their Public Safety, Prioritize Rehabilitation Over Other Criminal Justi

A nascent yet familiar groundswell of demands is resurrecting within Latinx communities as they yearn to be heard on their views of criminal justice reform. A national poll of Latinx experiences and opinions about criminal justice, policing and drug policy systems confirms that the nation's largest racial/ethnic minority is concerned about America's ability to provide for its public safety - from both threats emanating among law enforcement and their neighbors. At the end of 2017 LatinoJustice PRLDEF commissioned a national poll of Latino community members to document their experiences and opinions about the criminal justice system. It retained Latino Decisions to conduct the first poll of i

UFW Foundation: Trump’s promises to Dreamers ‘utterly sabotaged’ by White House aide Miller & ne

United Farm Workers Foundation Executive Director Diana Tellefson Torres, who is also a member of the UFW National Executive Board, issued this statement following release of immigration changes outlined by Stephen Miller, Donald Trump’s senior policy advisor, and contained a bill just introduced by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA): Senior White House policy advisory Stephen Miller and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte just released virulently anti-immigrant proposals that utterly sabotage promises of relief for Dreamers made yesterday by President Trump from the Cabinet Room that were carried on national television. The White House plan being drafted by Miller—including dr


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, a coalition of 45 of the nation’s preeminent Latino advocacy organizations, denounces the Trump administration’s decision to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for more than 250,000 Salvadorans granted TPS following devastating earthquakes that hit El Salvador in 2001. El Salvador represents the largest group of TPS holders in the U.S. These individuals now have a limited amount of time to determine whether they will remain in the United States without official documentation or leave the country they have called home for almost two decades. Trump’s agenda to reduce lawful immigration runs contrary to our American values by tearing

NALEO Educational Fund Strongly Opposes Department of Justice Request to Add Citizenship Question to

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund today released a statement from its executive director Arturo Vargas in response to the December 12, 2017, letter from the Department of Justice to Acting Census Director Ron Jarmin, requesting a new citizenship question on the 2020 Census: “The U.S. Department of Justice’s request for the U.S. Census Bureau to add a question on citizenship to the 2020 Census, which comes less than three months before the Bureau must submit final questionnaire wording to Congress, would waste millions of taxpayer dollars and significantly depress response rates in our nation’s decennial census co

Motel 6 Sued for Sharing 'Latino-Sounding' Guest Names with ICE

Motel 6 is again facing allegations of aiding U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in its crackdown against undocumented immigrants. Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson accused the discount hotel chain in a lawsuit of violating state privacy and discrimination laws since 2015 by snitching to ICE agents on some 9,000 guests with "Latino-sounding names." Disclosure of names, identification numbers, birth dates and license plates led to the detention of at least six individuals in Washington state, according to the complaint filed Wednesday in Seattle state court. The complaint against Motel 6, acquired by the Blackstone Group in 2012, comes less than four months after the company pare

#MeToo: starting a conversation about sexual assault

HOUSTON – (Jan. 3, 2018) – This year’s Golden Globes will adopt a more serious tone as many celebrity women take a stand against sexual harassment and sexual assault by wearing black attire. This and other recent movements against sexual assault are helping to shed light on a difficult and little-discussed topic and may help victims on their healing journey, according to a Baylor College of Medicine expert. “It is very common that people don’t speak up about sexual assault and harassment, especially if there is a power differential and they fear that they won’t be believed,” said Dr. Karen Lawson, a clinical psychologist and assistant professor in the Menninger Department of Psychiatry and B

Upcoming Key Dates on Immigration

And welcome to the first, 2018 edition of Noorani's Notes. Hope you had a little time off. Especially because the next few weeks are going to be...hectic on the immigration front. Buckle up. An op-ed I wrote in USA Today: "On immigration, Trump is positioned to do what Obama and Bush couldn't" Here are some key dates to keep in mind: January 8th - DHS must decide whether, or not, to extend Temporary Protected Status for roughly 195,000 people from El Salvador by January 8th. No matter what happens, congress will face increased pressured to find a legislative solution for TPS recipients. January 19th - the next government funding deadline; which is why both parties on Capitol Hill are being p

Resolve to improve health rather than to lose weight

HOUSTON – (Dec. 28, 2017) – When the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, everyone looks forward to the changes they are going to make in the year to come. However, if these changes are related to diet and weight loss, a registered dietitian with Baylor College of Medicine says to focus on making changes in your routine that will improve your health and the weight loss will follow. “Increasing your steps by 500 a day is not going to jumpstart your weight loss – it’s not enough of a calorie burn,” said Roberta Anding, registered dietitian and assistant professor at Baylor. “The reason to increase those 500 steps really has nothing to do with weight loss – it’s setting up the machinery in
