 04/12/2017 - 07:48
In a groundbreaking decision, New York state’s 2017-2018 budget earmarks $10 million to provide free legal assistance to immigrants, $4 million of which have specifically been assigned to provide lawyers to all immigrants at risk of deportation by expanding the Vera Institute of Justice’s New York Immigrant Family Unity Project (NYIFUP).

La política extremista antiinmigrante de la administración Trump ha sembrado el terror en las comunidades inmigrantes de todo el país. Pero Nueva York, fiel a su reputación como el estado inmigrante por excelencia, pronto se convertirá en el primero en toda la nación en darles a todos los inmigrantes pobres que enfrentan deportación, una oportunidad efectiva de defenderse.

[OP-ED]: Trump is beginning to reverse 70 years of American foreign policy

 02/01/2017 - 06:58
In his first days in office, Donald Trump has begun to reverse the domestic policies of the previous eight years. But with regard to America’s relations with the world, Trump seems far more radical. In word and deed, he appears to be walking away from the idea of America at the center of an open, rule- based international order. This would be a reversal of more than 70 years of American foreign policy. EFE
 

In an essay in The New York Review of Books, Jessica Mathews points out that since 1945, Americans of both political parties have accepted three principles. First, that America’s security is enhanced by its broad and deep alliances around the world. Second, that an open global economy is not a zero-sum game but rather allows America to prosper and others to grow. And finally, while there was debate about whether dictatorships were to be “tolerated, managed, or confronted,” in the end there was a faith in democracy and its advantages.
