After entering the chamber to thunderous applause, he said the world is facing a refugee crisis of a magnitude not seen since…

Ahmed Mohamed is tired, excited to meet Obama – and wants his clock back

AP

Above all else, Ahmed Mohamed wants some sleep. Early Thursday afternoon, when he would be in school if he weren’t suspended, he curled his 14-year-old frame on a quilted bed. Outside, satellite television trucks loomed on the street, but he stayed hidden in a curtained back room of the family home. On Monday, the teenage inventor stepped with his outsized sneaker on the intersection of several American fault lines – Islamophobia, technology, school violence – when he showed up at school with a homemade clock that his teachers took for a bomb. In the days since he has become a…

REUTERS/NOAH BERGER In early June, in cities across America, U.S. immigration agents arrested more than two dozen Chinese nationals with unfulfilled deportation orders, telling them that after years of delay, China was finally taking steps to provide the paperwork needed to expel them from the U.S. But, not for the first time, China failed to provide the necessary documents, and three months later not one of those arrested has been deported, and many have been released from custody.

Obama cements Iran victory

The Hill

By Alexander Bolton – 09/08/15 11:22 AM EDT President Obama has clinched the 41 votes he needs to block a resolution disapproving of the Iran nuclear deal, sealing an important political victory over Republicans.
