The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has been fully restored by a federal court in Maryland on Friday.For the first time in 3 years, DACA will now be open up to new applicants. The program allows immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children but who lack legal status to legally work and protects them from deportation.President Donald Trump has been trying to end the program since 2017.However, last month, the Supreme Court ruled thatTrump didn’t properly end the program. Immigration attorneys argued that meant the Trump administration had to start accepting new applications, but it doesn’t appear to have done so yet. Trump can still end the program.According to reports, about 650,000 people are enrolled in DACA, but only those who were already in the program when it ended have been able to renew.The Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan think tank, estimates an additional 66,000 young immigrants now meet the minimum age requirement of 15 years to apply for DACA and would be eligible under the restored program.The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said it is reviewing the ruling.
RED BANK – The 20th anniversary 2013 George Sheehan Classic with its popular 5K (3.1 mile) distance as its main event, is set for 8:30 a.m. Saturday, June 15.More than 2,500 runners are expected to participate in what is known as one of the Jersey Shore’s most renowned road races. Preregistration is still available, and the 5K is filling up quickly. The race is limited to 3,000 entrants.The race committee has had a great deal of community feedback over the years that running 5 miles was just a little too long for the everyday runner, and that sometimes the heat in June can be a factor. In response, it was decided last year that the 5K distance is the right match for the entire family to participate, either by racing or walking the scenic course.This year will be the 20th running of the event in Red Bank. The George Sheehan Classic began in 1981 as the Asbury Park 10K Classic and quickly became one of the major road running events on the national calendar. The race moved to Red Bank in 1994 and was renamed to honor the memory of Dr. George Sheehan, the prominent author, philosopher and area physician. “The Doc” has been called the “father of the running boom” in the United States.The Sheehan family is planning a release of a new book of his life’s work next year to commemorate the 20th year of his passing.As part of the Sheehan Classic, the Friday evening Kids’ Classic will be held at 6:30 p.m. June 14. It’s a series of children’s races of various distances – from toddler to age 13. Kids will be treated to face painting, characters and treats from area establishments like Smoothie King and Sugarush. Free entertainment will accompany the kids’ races at the Runner’s Expo Village, on the banks of the Navesink. The expo is open from 2 to 8:30 p.m.The main race will be held at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, June 15. Event finishers enjoy a picnic breakfast in the park, followed by a popular post-race block party at 10:30 with music and an awards ceremony.More than $2,500 in prize money will be distributed in the 5- kilometer run to top five overall finishers, top New Jersey finishers and age-category winners.The race is part of the Jersey Shore Golden Grand Prix, sponsored by McLoone’s. It’s a series of races that offers prize money to overall and age category winners. The five events are: Spring Lake 5, George Sheehan Classic, Belmar 5, Asbury Park 5K and Pier House 5K.For Sheehan Classic information and registration, call the event hotline 732-571-2162 or check the website at www.sheehanclassic.org.
– Advertisement -Universal dental care, one of NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh’s priorities, was cited as an idea “worth exploring” and one that Parliament was encouraged to look into. This report by The Canadian Press was first published Dec. 5, 2019. But it also made pointed references to issues that are dear to the NDP and Bloc Quebecois. The Liberals will need the support of at least one of those two parties to pass legislation and survive confidence votes. “Parliamentarians: Canadians are counting on you to fight climate change, strengthen the middle class, walk the road of reconciliation, keep Canadians safe and healthy, and position Canada for success in an uncertain world. And with goodwill, humility and a willingness to collaborate, you can do just that.” The speech noted that “a clear majority of Canadians voted for ambitious climate action now,” and reiterated the Liberals’ pledge to maintain the national carbon price and achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Net zero means greenhouse gas emissions are reduced so much that the remaining emissions can be absorbed by natural or technological means, leaving none to remain trapped in the atmosphere. In a nod to one of the Bloc’s priorities, the government promised that dairy farmers impacted by recent trade agreements will be “fully and fairly compensated” — with many receiving their first cheques this month. The speech from the throne, penned by the Prime Minister’s Office but read by Gov. Gen. Julie Payette, offered few details of Trudeau’s agenda for his second mandate, beyond reiterating Liberal campaign promises: stronger action to fight climate change, lower taxes for middle-class Canadians, beefed-up gun control, steps towards national pharmacare and investments in infrastructure, public transit, affordable housing and health care. But, as hard as the government vowed to fight climate change, the speech promised it will “work just as hard to get Canadian resources to new markets and offer unwavering support to the hardworking women and men in Canada’s natural resources sectors, many of whom have faced tough times recently.”Advertisement Moreover, the speech emphasized that the government “is open to new ideas” from opposition parties.Advertisement There was no direct reference to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project, which is opposed by the Bloc, New Democrats and Greens as antithetical to the fight against climate change. The Trudeau government purchased the pipeline to ensure the project, which is to carry Alberta oil sands crude to the British Columbia coast for export overseas, goes ahead. The speech also recognized that the Liberals were shut out in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada’s oil and gas heartland where anger over Liberal environmental policies has fuelled talk of western separatism. “The government has heard Canadians’ concerns that the world is increasingly uncertain and that the economy is changing,” Payette said. “And in this context, regional needs and differences really matter. Today’s regional economic concerns are both justified and important.” OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau ushered in a new era of minority Liberal rule Thursday with a throne speech brimming with humility, goodwill and promises of collaboration with opposition parties whose support he needs to ensure his government’s survival. “Canadians have sent a clear message: from young people to seniors, they want their parliamentarians to work together on the issues that matter most to them,” Payette said. Payette exhorted MPs to “raise the bar on what politics is like in this country,” adding that, “after all, the government knows it needs to work with other parliamentarians to deliver results.”Advertisement Joan Bryden, The Canadian Press The speech was more about tone than substance, attempting to demonstrate to Canadians that Trudeau’s Liberals, reduced to a minority on Oct. 21, have heard the message sent by voters after a particularly nasty, hyper-partisan campaign.
Emiliano Insua in action for Atletico Madrid Atletico Madrid could offer former Liverpool defender Emiliano Insua to Benfica as part of their bid to sign highly rated winger Nicolas Gaitan, who is on Manchester United’s radar.The La Liga champions have already initiated talks with Benfica over a deal to sign Gaitan, who has been monitored by United and Liverpool in recent seasons.Atleti have cash to spend after sanctioning the sales of Diego Costa and Filipe Luis and they want Gaitan at the Vicente Calderon as they prepare to defend their La Liga crown.talkSPORT told you last week that the Spanish capital side are already willing to offer Benfica midfielder Josuha Guilavogui, who has been targeted by Everton, but sources in Spain claim they will now send Insua in the other direction too.Left-back Insua managed only five league starts last term and he is unlikely to have greater first-team involvement anytime soon after manager Diego Simeone snapped up Guilherme Siqueira.Benfica are keen to have the 25-year-old on board and this could help speed up the deal. 1

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Brighton striker Murray: Potter system a huge learning curveby Paul Vegas24 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBrighton striker Glenn Murray says the players are still adjusting to manager Graham Potter’s methods.He says there is still work to do to hone a playing style preferred by Potter.Murray told The Argus: “It is all a huge learning curve.“We have come so far in the three months the gaffer has been with us and we are going to have afternoons like this (the 2-0 defeat at Chelsea). But we will keep doing it our way and hopefully we have more successful afternoons than not.“It’s full focus on Tottenham. Looking towards picking some points up and then another international break, which is more time to learn the philosophy and get it right.“It is a constant learning curve. Obviously, opponents we come up against are different every week and there are different ways of trying to break them down and get possession of the ball and control the game.”
