A preliminary investigation by Portland police indicates that Christian, 35, was on the train “yelling various remarks that would best be characterized as hate speech toward a variety of ethnicity and religions.” He has not as yet […]

    64-year-old law school graduate is given dream car on graduation day

    (ATLANTA) — One mother postponed the pursuit of her ultimate dream of attending law school. Instead, Jerita Hall raised her children. “That was my dream in high school, but I grew up in an area where there was not a lot of professional women that I knew,” Hall, 64, recalled to ABC News. “It was an era when most girls graduated high school, went to college and had a family. So I did all of that,” she continued. “I was only able to go back to school once my last child finished college.” After obtaining her bachelor’s degree in 1973, […]

    What lies ahead for Trump's travel ban as the DOJ pursues Supreme Court review

    (WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump’s continued attempts to limit travel and immigration from some Middle East and African countries was dealt its latest setback Thursday when the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an earlier, temporary block of his executive order on the matter. In the aftermath, Attorney General Jeff Sessions pledged to “seek review of this case in the United States Supreme Court,” where a final decision could be offered and precedent potentially set for similar matters. The Fourth Circuit heard the case on the executive order en banc, with all of the circuit’s judges, a rare step reserved […]
