Wasio na Makaratasi Marekani Warudishwa Kwao

Halahala kama huna makaratasi Marekani siku hizi:

Wiki hii  Mke na Mume WaSpanish kutoka Mexico waliokuwa na kampuni ya landscpaping  New  JerseyJwaliokuwa wamezaa watoto watatu Marekani wamerudishwa kwao Mexico. Hawakuwa na hatia zaidi ya kutokuwa na makaratasi.

   NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A couple who came to New Jersey from Mexico 30 years ago have been deported, leaving their three children behind.

   Oscar and Humberta Campos lived in Bridgeton, New Jersey, and own a landscaping company. They said goodbye to their children Friday morning at Newark's airport before boarding a flight to Mexico City. The children, ages 16, 22 and 24, are all American citizens.

   "There is no distance. I will always have them in my heart," Oscar Campos told WCAU-TV .

   Campos said he fled violence in his hometown, Tamaulipas, and crossed the border into Texas in 1989.

   WCAU-TV reports that after a lengthy effort to obtain work visas, the couple were ordered by immigration officials to leave the country.

   Democratic U.S. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey tried to help the family stay in the U.S. He says he's "extremely disappointed" their stay of removal was denied.

   "Mr. and Mrs. Campos' case reinforces the urgent need for us to stand united in seeking common sense solutions to our broken immigration system that are consistent with our core American principles," he said in a statement.

   Just before the couple left, Oscar Campos gave his children some parting advice.

   "Fight for your dreams, because life continues and you will always find good people that support you," he said. "There are a lot of good people. Don't give your hopes up."

Na pia Mama MGhana anarudishwa Ghana baada ya kukutwa na hati ya kudhulumu maskini food
stamps zao hapa Massachusetts.

   WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - The owner of a Massachusetts store has pleaded guilty to her role in a food stamp fraud scheme that netted her more than $280,000.

   Federal prosecutors say 49-year-old Esther Acquaye, who owns Esther's Fashion Paradise in Worcester, paid some customers 50 cents for every Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program dollar and received the full value of the benefits from the government.

   Acquaye pleaded guilty Thursday to aiding and abetting SNAP fraud, trafficking in counterfeit goods, and conspiracy. Sentencing is scheduled for March 7. The Ghana native who is in the U.S. legally also faces deportation.

   Authorities started investigating when they noticed a spike in SNAP transactions at the store. Prosecutors say she also allowed customers to use SNAP benefits to buy the fake designer merchandise she stocked, which is against program rules.

Wanajeshi Kutoka Tanzania Walinda Amani wa UN Wauawa Congo

   KINSHASA, Congo (AP) - In the deadliest single attack on a United Nations peacekeeping mission in nearly 25 years, rebels in eastern Congo killed 15 peacekeepers and wounded over 50 others in an assault on their base that was launched at nightfall and went on for hours.

   U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed "outrage and utter heartbreak" and called the attack a war crime, urging Congolese authorities to swiftly investigate. The State Department's Bureau of African Affairs said it was "horrified."

   U.N. peacekeeping spokesman Nick Birnback said it was the deadliest attack on a U.N. peacekeeping mission since June 1993, when 22 Pakistani soldiers were killed in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu.

   The peacekeepers killed Thursday were from Tanzania. Tanzanian President John Magufuli expressed his shock and prayers for the wounded, three of whom are in critical condition. At least five Congolese soldiers also were killed in the attack Thursday evening that has been blamed on one of the region's deadliest rebel groups.

   Three peacekeepers were missing, the U.N. said. More than 20 were evacuated for medical treatment in the regional capital, Goma.

   Birnback, the U.N. peacekeeping spokesman, called the assault "a determined and well-coordinated attack by a well-armed group."

   It was not clear when military reinforcements arrived after the attack, the U.N. said. Conditions in the region are "very, very challenging," said U.N. peacekeeping chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix, who said the attack followed a recent increase in activities by various armed groups. He called the assault a response to the U.N. mission's own "increasingly robust posture."

   "We are disturbing them," he said. "They do not like it."

   The peacekeeping base is about 45 kilometers (27 miles) from the town of Beni, which has been repeatedly attacked by the Allied Democratic Forces, or ADF, rebel group. The ADF is suspected of being behind Thursday's assault. The base is home to the U.N. mission's rapid intervention force, which has a rare mandate to go on the offensive against armed groups in the vast, mineral-rich region.

   The U.N. mission in Congo is the largest and most expensive in the world. It has also been a high-profile target of the Trump administration's cost-cutting efforts. The mission has a budget of $1.14 billion and over 16,500 soldiers. Nearly 300 peacekeepers have been killed since the mission arrived in 1999, according to U.N. data.

   Members of the U.N. Security Council, which authorized the peacekeeping mission, stood in silent tribute to the victims at the start of a meeting Friday afternoon on a five-nation force in Africa's Sahel region.

   Later, the council condemned the attack "in the strongest terms," underlined that deliberate attacks targeting peacekeepers may constitute war crimes, and called on Congo's government to ensure that the perpetrators "are swiftly brought to justice."

   "This attack, the worst on U.N. peacekeepers in recent years, is a reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices made by these brave women and men every day," the council said.

   Birnback said U.N. flags will fly at half-staff Monday all over the world in memory of those killed or injured.

   Congo, the size of Western Europe, has seen immeasurable cruelty and greed as a result of its mineral resources while more than 80 percent of the population lives below the absolute poverty line of $1.25 a day. The nation suffered through one of the most brutal colonial reigns ever known before enduring decades of corrupt dictatorship. Back-to-back civil wars later drew in a number of neighboring countries.

   Many rebel groups have come and gone during the U.N. mission's years of operation, at times invading the regional capital.

   One of the greatest threats now comes from the ADF. While the fighters are mainly Muslim, experts say there are no proven links between the rebels and other extremist organizations in Africa.

   The ADF "has an agenda both ideological and extremist in nature, but also focused ... on exploitation of illegal resources," Lacroix said. He accused the rebels of preying on the local population.

   The rebels once aimed to overthrow President Yoweri Museveni's regime in neighboring Uganda. By the 1990s, they had established themselves in Congo.

   Human rights groups say at least 1,000 people have been killed in the last three years as the ADF intensified attacks in Congo. About a dozen rebels have been sentenced to death on charges related to participating in an insurrection movement.

   The U.N. mission in 2006 helped carry out Congo's first free and fair elections in 46 years. Since then, the winner of that vote, President Joseph Kabila, has become entrenched in power. Anger has grown as presidential elections originally set for late last year have been repeatedly delayed. The government has blamed insecurity for the delays.

   The U.N. secretary-general in October warned that without real progress toward elections, Congo "is likely to enter a period of extreme volatility."
