Six-year-old heard in ProPublica US border separation tape reunited with mother Pitch invaders briefly disrupt World Cup final

Six-year-old heard in ProPublica US border separation tape reunited with motherA six-year-old girl who was recorded crying in a detention centre after being separated from her mother at the US-Mexico border has been reunited with her. The mother, Cindy Madrid, who had fled from El Salvador, was reunited with her daughter Alisson at Houston airport after weeks apart. Last month Alisson was heard on a tape published by ProPublica, reciting a phone number for her family as she was detained. At a press conference in Houston,  Alisson, speaking though an interpreter, said: "I was away from her for a month and I was really happy when I saw her. I was happy because I was able to see her and hug her." Her mother said: "It's so hard for a parent to be away from their kids. I was so desperate." The family's lawyer said they would be living together in Houston before an asylum hearing at an as yet unknown date. The mother had been held at a detention centre in Houston and her daughter had been taken to one in Arizona. Under the "zero tolerance" policy employed by US President Donald Trump they were separated after crossing the border illegally. Mr Trump later reversed the policy. Donald Trump's shameful border policy is alienating his supporters It came as a judge in California ordered the Trump administration to pay the costs of reuniting illegal immigrant parents with children separated from them at the border, rather than forcing the parents to pay. The US government is still working to reunite more than 2,500 children with their parents.

Russian activist rock band Pussy Riot have claimed responsibility for the pitch invasion that briefly interrupted the World Cup final in Moscow.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
