June 6, 2016 In The News

WASHINGTON — When North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) signed HB 2 into law in March, with the swish of a pen, he overturned all of the state’s local ordinances that protected lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from being discriminated against.

The Hill

A bill to protect immigrant veterans of the U.S. military from deportation was introduced in the House Wednesday. "If we're [deporting] one veteran, that's one too many," Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), who introduced the legislation, told The Hill. The bill would allow authorities to waive action against veterans who are documented immigrants. To be eligible, veterans must have served at least 180 days in the armed forces and have no convictions for felonies, significant misdemeanors or more than three non-significant misdemeanors.
