Court hands DACA recipients another victory

  Court hands DACA recipients another victory A federal judge ruled officials can't revoke DACA recipients' work permits or other protections without giving them notice and a chance to defend themselves. The ruling in a California district court marks the third time a lower court has ruled against the administration's handling of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. But this case, unlike the others, is not about President Donald Trump's September decision to end the program. US District Judge Philip Gutierrez's preliminary injunction Monday addressed another aspect: government decisions to revoke protections from individual DACA recipients.

Capitol Police arrested 87 protesters demonstrating in support of an expiring immigration program Monday, authorities told reporters, organized around a symbolic deadline for the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Couple on the run from police bolts straight into precinct parking lot

  Couple on the run from police bolts straight into precinct parking lot Peoria police officials said Tuesday that two suspects ran to the grounds of a police precinct in Arizona before they were arrested by officers. The incident, according to Peoria police, happened at around 6:10 p.m. on February 16, when officers approached a suspicious car at a gas station North Lake Pleasant Parkway. As officers approached the car, they ran away from the gas station, and eventually ran toward the front door of the precinct building.According to Peoria police, there is a very large "Peoria Police" sign above that door.

There were two demonstrations on Capitol Hill. Police say 68 people were arrested in a protest that blocked traffic near the Capitol, at Independence and New Jersey avenues. The protesters there chained themselves together and lay down in the street.

Officers cut off the chains, and took the protesters to waiting police vans. They were charged with "crowding, obstructing or incommoding"; 28 of them were also charged with resisting arrest.

Nineteen others were arrested for a demonstration in the Longworth House Office Building, trying to get into the office of House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The protest on Independence Avenue was peaceful. Capitol Police loaded some of the demonstrators into a police van, and then a second larger vehicle, similar to a shuttle bus, came for the rest. There were between 50 and 60 officers outside with the protesters, some surrounding the center group (who were ultimately arrested) and others keeping the rest of the protesters on the street corners.

Ninth-grader arrested after a photo of Lego rifle is posted on social media with threatening message

  Ninth-grader arrested after a photo of Lego rifle is posted on social media with threatening message SAN DIEGO - A freshman at a San Diego County high school was arrested on suspicion of making terrorist threats after he posted a photo of a Lego rifle on social media with a threatening message, a school district official said. The 14-year-old ninth grader at West Hills High School in Santee was arrested at his home Tuesday, said Catherine Martin, a spokeswoman with the Grossmont Union High School District."We thank law enforcement for their quick action," Martin said on Twitter.The arrest comes as several schools - both in Southern California and across the country - have reacted to threats of violence in the wake of the Feb.

The group chanted "Undocumented! Unafraid!" in both English and Spanish.

When the vehicles with those arrested departed, the group returned to the lawn between the Capitol and the Library of Congress, where they had earlier spelled out the word UNAFRAID in tissue paper flowers facing the Capitol.

President Donald Trump ended the DACA policy in September, originally giving Congress a six month window to come up with a solution for what happens to those participants in the program. Multiple federal judges ruled that the justification the Trump administration was using to terminate the program was shaky at best -- and ordered the Department of Homeland Security to resume renewing all existing DACA permits. And the Supreme Court declined the administration's unusual request to leapfrog the appellate courts and consider immediately whether to overrule those decisions. Those court rulings have rendered the so-called deadline largely meaningless, as the program continues indefinitely pending further court action.

Congressional efforts earlier this year to find a legislative solution on immigration have been unable to reach a resolution.
