  • Family of dead migrant girl says she was healthy before being detained at US border

    Golocal247.com news

    The family of a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl who died in US Border Patrol custody is disputing an account from American officials who said she had not been given food or water for days. In a statement released by lawyers, the parents of Jakelin Caal said the girl had been given food and water and appeared to be in good health as she travelled through Mexico with her father, 29-year-old Nery Gilberto Caal Cuz. Border Patrol officials did not immediately respond to the family's comments. The family's statement was released on Saturday during a news conference in El Paso, Texas, at an immigrant shelter where Jakelin's father is staying. Her family did not attend and has asked for privacy. Jakelin and her father were seeking asylum in the US and were among a large group of migrants arrested on December 6 near a remote border crossing in New Mexico. Hours later they were placed on a bus to the nearest Border Patrol station, but Jakelin began vomiting and eventually stopped breathing. She later died at a Texas hospital. Border Patrol officials on Friday said agents did everything they could to save the girl but that she had not had food or water for days. They added that an initial screening showed no evidence of health problems, and that her father had signed a form indicating she was in good health. Claudia Maquin, 27, shows a photo of her daughter, Jakelin, at her home in Raxruha, Guatemala  Credit: Oliver de Ros/AP But the family took issue with that form, which was in English, a language her father doesn't speak or read. He communicated with border agents in Spanish but he primarily speaks the Mayan Q'eqchi' language. "It is unacceptable for any government agency to have persons in custody sign documents in a language that they clearly do not understand," the statement said. Jakelin's family is urging authorities to conduct an "objective and thorough" investigation into the death and to determine whether officials met standards for the arrest and custody of children. A cause of death has not yet been released. A private prayer service was held in Texas on Friday so her father could see Jakelin's body before it is taken to Guatemala, said Ruben Garcia, director of the Annunciation House shelter where her father is staying. "All of us were moved by the depth of his faith and his trust that God's hand is in all of this," Garcia said. Family members in Guatemala said Caal decided to migrate with his favorite child to earn money he could send back home. Jakelin's mother and three siblings remained in San Antonio Secortez, a village of about 420 inhabitants.

  • U.N. Yemen envoy pushes Security Council for robust truce monitoring

    Golocal247.com news

    The Iranian-aligned Houthis and the Saudi-backed Yemen government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi agreed on Thursday to stop fighting for Houthi-held Hodeidah and withdraw their troops, the first significant breakthrough for U.N.-led peace efforts in five years of conflict. "A robust and competent monitoring regime is not just essential, it is also urgently needed and both parties have told us they would very much welcome it and indeed depend on it," Griffiths told the 15-member council, adding that U.N. officials were already planning for such a deployment. Such a monitoring mission needs the backing of the Security Council in a resolution, diplomats said.

    “Our position on the solution hasn’t changed,” Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said at a conference in Doha on Saturday. Last week, Sheikh Tamim spurned an invitation from Saudi Arabia’s King Salman to attend a gathering of Gulf monarchies, which was seen as a sign of thawing relations after 18 months of Qatar’s boycott by the kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt. The overture came as Saudi Arabia sought to defuse pressure over the killing of a vocal critic in Istanbul.

  • Obamacare to be considered by new-look  US Supreme Court after Texas judge rules it is unconstitutional

    Golocal247.com news

    America's new-look conservative-leaning US Supreme Court looks set to rule next year whether to overturn Barack Obama's flagship Obamacare policy. The highest court in America is expected to consider Mr Obama's signature political legacy after a judge in Texas declared it unconstitutional. Donald Trump, who tipped the balance in the court with controversial appointments, called the Texas ruling "Great news for America!" and said Obamacare was an "unconstitutional disaster". In Texas, Judge Reed O'Connor delivered his 55-page ruling on the eve of the deadline for Americans to sign up for 2019 health insurance coverage under Obamacare. Republicans have long opposed the health care system, officially introduced by the Affordable Care Act in 2010. President Barack Obama at his final press conference in January 2017  Credit: AFP Mr Trump made abolishing the programme one of his main campaign pledges in 2016, but an attempt to repeal it in Congress failed last year. Judge O'Connor said changes to the law introduced by Mr Trump's overhaul of the tax system in 2017 had affected the legality of  Obamacare. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act eliminated Obamacare's so-called "individual mandate" under which people who failed to sign up and pay for health insurance were subjected to a fine. Judge O'Connor ruled that the entire Affordable Care Act should now be struck down because the individual mandate had been the "keystone" of the programme. The law will remain in place pending an appeal process which is expected to reach the Supreme Court next year. Obamacare has been considered twice by the court before, in 2012 and 2015, and opponents lost. However, this will be the first time that Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the new conservative Supreme Court justice nominated by Mr Trump this year, will have an input. Brett Kavanaugh at his Senate confirmation hearing in September Credit: AP Five judges on the nine-strong court who voted for Obamacare previously are still in place. The case in Texas was brought by the administrations of 20 Republican US states, and opposed by a host of Democrat states. Nancy Pelosi, the incoming Democrat Speaker of the House of Representatives, said the ruling "exposes the monstrous endgame of Republicans' all-out assault" on people seeking affordable healthcare. She said: "This absurd ruling will be immediately appealed. Republicans are fully responsible for this cruel decision."
