By Steve Holland and Emily Stephenson | WASHINGTON President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, resigned late on Monday under scrutiny over whether he discussed the possibility of lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia before Trump took office. Flynn submitted his resignation hours after Trump said through a spokesman that he was reviewing the situation and talking to Vice President Mike Pence. Flynn had promised Pence he had not discussed sanctions with the Russians but it was later discovered that the subject had come up. “Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the vice president-elect and…

The State Department Saturday morning reversed the revocation of up to 60,000 visas from foreigners from seven Muslim-majority countries following a federal judge’s ruling that immediately halted President Trump’s immigration order, according to reports. The department says that for now, people covered by the order and holding a valid visa may now travel to the United States. On Friday, the State Department announced that the 60,000 visas had been provisionally revoked to comply with President Trump’s temporary ban on travel. Federal judge James Robart, who was appointed by former President George W. Bush in 2003, ruled Friday that the executive order…

By Yeganeh Torbati and Doina Chiacu | WASHINGTON President Donald Trump’s most far reaching action since taking office plunged America’s immigration system into chaos on Saturday, not only for refugees but for legal U.S. residents who were turned away at airports and feared being stranded outside the country. Immigration lawyers and advocates worked through the night trying to help stranded travelers find a way back home. Lawyers in New York sued to block the order, saying many people have already been unlawfully detained, including an Iraqi who worked for the U.S. Army in Iraq. Confusion abounded at airports as immigration…

Woman kept alive for six days with no lungs

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38781484 A woman was kept alive with no lungs for six days while she waited for a transplant in April last year. It is thought to be the first operation of its kind in the world and she was kept alive with a small, artificial lung. Melissa Benoit, who lives in Canada, had developed life-threatening complications as a result of her cystic fibrosis. She said: “In my mid-20s I started developing lung infections, and I acquired influenza with this bout which put me in respiratory distress.” Melissa was given hours to live, until doctors undertook the pioneering surgery which she…

Threat of investigations hangs over Clinton and Trump

No matter who wins the White House on Tuesday, the next president is likely to enter office under the threat of investigation by the rival party. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are both deeply polarizing figures unlikely to enjoy a period of goodwill from the other side of the aisle. Multiple Republicans this week have predicted impeachment could be on the table if Clinton wins, a possibility Trump has mentioned in a late effort to boost his bid for the White House. And while Republicans are likely to control at least one chamber of Congress next year, Democrats would almost certainly…

US partners with Costa Rica to protect Central American refugees

The Guardian

Costa Rica will offer temporary protection to refugees fleeing Central America for the US, the Obama administration announced on Tuesday, following an admission by officials of its failure to address the surge in refugees fleeing violence, rape and kidnappings. “Our current efforts to date have been insufficient to address the number of people who may have legitimate refugee claims,” said Amy Pope, deputy homeland security adviser, in a press call on Tuesday morning. Central Americans from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have fled their countries in their thousands. As violence in the Northern Triangle spiked in 2015, the number of…
