A pregnant woman was jailed for refusing to make her kids take a paternity test. Now she’s fighting back.

It’s hard to believe that a pregnant woman who hasn’t been accused of a crime could be held in jail for over a month, but here we are. This world is full of all kind of wrongs that need to be righted. When Adrianna Thurman refused to submit her two children to a paternity test requested by her ex-boyfriend Erwin Rush, she was held in contempt of the St. Louis Family Court and thrown in the slammer for 39 days. Because Thurman’s case was civil and not criminal, she was held without being charged for a crime, didn’t have access to an attorney, and was not eligible for bond. Thurman, who was seven months pregnant at the time, wasn’t given …

Illegal immigration myth buster: A lawyer sets the record straight on taxes and benefits.

Some people believe that undocumented immigrants exploit our system and get loads of free benefits. It’s not true. There’s a lot of confusion about immigration, which is understandable. It’s a complex issue, with a lot of gray area. But there are many myths being perpetuated about undocumented immigrants that create an unnecessarily murky picture of the reality. One of those myths is that people migrate to the U.S. and cross the border illegally so they can receive public benefits without contributing anything to our system. But that’s not true. Unauthorized immigrants make up 5% of the U.S. workforce, but account for more than a quarter of our agriculture workforce. Photo via David McNew/Getty Images. An immigration lawyer set the record …

Amy Schumer Is Pregnant Betches

Guys. GUYS. I can’t handle this anymore. I really feel like I’m about to lose my mind (and it’s not just because I’ve slept for five hours combined the past two nights). I just found out that Amy Schumer is pregnant, and I really don’t know what to do with myself. Why are celebrities doing this?? I am feeling personally victimized by all the engagements and pregnancies, not only among my peers, but now among the famous people I used to like to follow for the sole purpose of judging their life choices! And now you mean to tell me that they’re all getting their lives together and acting like responsible adults?? SMH, it be ya own celebrities. Who am …

This Alternative To Detaining Immigrant Families Works. Trump Just Won’t Use It.

The way the Trump administration talks about it, you’d think there are only two ways to respond to families crossing into the U.S. illegally: either separate kids from their parents while the adults are tried as criminals or put entire families into indefinite detention. But there’s an alternative approach that’s cheaper, more humane and incredibly effective. The Trump administration just doesn’t want to use it. The Family Case Management Program, which President Donald Trump ended several months after taking office, was meant to keep track of immigrant parents and kids in removal proceedings without having to keep them locked up. It was relatively small ― about 950 families in five locations. But it was hugely successful: More than 99 percent …

Handcuffs, assaults, and drugs called ‘vitamins’: Children allege grave abuse at migrant detention facilities

(CNN)A year before the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy resulted in more than 2,300 children being separated from their families at the border in a mere five-week period, a ninth-grader in McAllen, Texas, was taken from his mother. But John Doe 2 landed in a far more troubled corner of the system, according to a first-person sworn declaration in a current legal motion against the federal government for unlawful and inappropriate detainment of children. His account is one of dozens describing overloaded and secretive shelters, treatment centers and secure detention facilities for undocumented minors, which at their worst have allegedly been home to neglect, assault and other horrific abuse. The allegations in these documents, as well as recent facility inspection reports …

50 Men Reveal What Turns Them On Now That Theyre Older And More Mature

Some men from Ask Reddit reveal what turns them on now that never turned them on before. 1. Intelligence. I mean yes looks still matter, but if you’re well informed and passionate about an issue, I find it attractive. 2. Sanity. I used to have the baffling concept that crazy chicks were more fun. 3.

Interest being shown, not having to chase someone and “play games”. It’s insane meeting women around my age that still act like they’re in high school. I’m not going to waste time trying to figure …
