Immigrant from Ecuador wants US deportation case reopened

His attorney, Tina Colon Williams of the Esperanza Center for Law & Advocacy, says Pinos was 19 years old when he was arrested. She said Monday that he was not aware when an immigration court ordered his deportation in 1994, and that he did not become aware of the order until 2012. Since Pinos did not have an opportunity to show up for immigration court the first time, Williams contends that the order was not properly issued and therefore is not legally valid. A three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments Tuesday in St. Paul, Minnesota. John Mohan, a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the agency does not comment on specifics …

Pennsylvania attorney general sues Purdue Pharma over opioid epidemic

(CNN)Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro says Purdue Pharma is responsible for an opioid epidemic that has ravaged the state. On Tuesday, he announced that he had sued the pharmaceutical giant over it. “The complaint is part of a continuing effort to try these cases in the court of public opinion rather than the justice system. Such allegations demand clear evidence linking the conduct alleged to the harm described, but we believe the state fails to show such causation and offers little evidence to support its sweeping legal claims,” the company said in a statement. Connecticut Attorney General William Tong filed a lawsuit against the company in April. However, Shapiro said that Pennsylvania’s suit is the first to greatly detail how …

‘Bring your own lunchbox to cut waste’

“People are saying that they are buying food to take out because life has got busier,” says Hubbub’s Tessa Tricks. “It’s that sense that, ‘I’m important and having this on the go will make me do things more efficiently,’ but sometimes sitting with crockery and cutlery and enjoying it would be better.” Ms Tricks argues it is usually both healthier and cheaper to make a packed lunch, but the charity is also encouraging people to pop a plastic box in their bag alongside their reusable coffee cup, if they plan to buy takeaway food.

Here’s proof of how Trump has mixed up Washington: Some Democrats think he might want to be impeached

(CNN)It seems a crazy idea that any president would actually want to be impeached. But it’s also possible their leaders could be talking up the idea that Trump wants to be impeached as a way to quell discontent among some base activists that Washington Democrats are not doing more to constrain the President. The question is not going away, given Trump’s staggeringly broad effort to subvert investigations of his presidency, campaign, personal finances and business career. “The President is almost self-impeaching because he is, every day, demonstrating more obstruction of justice and disrespect for Congress’ legitimate role to subpoena,” Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday. One of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff, is, like Pelosi, …

Government reports Obamacare coverage gains are starting to retreat

(CNN)The coverage gains achieved by the Affordable Care Act are starting to erode. The landmark health care law is credited with extending coverage to millions of Americans, prompting the uninsured rate for non-elderly adults to plummet from 22.3% in 2010, the year Obamacare passed, to a low of 12.4% in 2016. Last year, it stood at 13.3%, though the agency noted the difference was not statistically significant. The CDC report does not explain why the rate for those ages 45 to 64 has climbed while remaining stable for younger adults. These middle-age Americans have the lowest uninsured rate among non-elderly adults. The share of this cohort without insurance began creeping up in 2015, but the changes were not statistically significant …
