President Trump Sleeping at Walter Reed Medical Center

President spending second night at Walter Reed Medical Center
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN HOST: Good evening. President of the United States is spending second night at Walter Reed Medical Center.

We've learned he required supplemental oxygen to help him breathe yesterday, we didn't learn that through his doctor, who went out ...

Germany's Memorial  To The Murdered Jews Of Europe
Architecture is about monuments and graves, said the Viennese architect Adolf Loos at the turn of the 20th century. This meant that an individual human life could be commemorated by a single stone, slab, cross, or star. The simplicity of this idea ended with the Holocaust and Hiroshima and the mechanisms of mass death. Today an individual can no longer be certain to die an individual death, and architecture can no longer remember life as it once did. The markers that were formerly symbols of individual life and death must be changed, and this has a profound effect on the idea of both memory an ...

Undocumented Crime Victims Face Heightened Risk of Deportation
For a decade, the U.S. has offered a special visa to some immigrants who are crime victims. Those who survive domestic violence, human trafficking or sexual assault — and help law enforcement investigate the crime — can apply for a U visa, which allows them to remain legally in the U.S. Earlier this month, the stakes changed. Undocumented victims who are denied a U visa may now receive an order to appear before an immigration judge — the first step toward deportation, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency said last week. “It is expected that individuals who no longer ha ...

For Refugees in the Trump Era, a Tougher Path to the U.S.
Afkab Hussein takes advantage of his commutes as a truck driver in Columbus, Ohio to speak to his wife and son, both of whom live in Nairobi, Kenya.

He loves to make Abdullahi – who is fascinated by cars – laugh by showing him the inside of his truck. For his birthday in November, Hussein bought h ...

But the crisis was years in the making, with a brutal civil war in Syria adding millions of refugees to those fleeing from conflicts elsewhere, including Afghanistan, Iraq and Nigeria. It is the scale of the crisis that is so extraordinary, the worst the world has seen since the mass migrations triggered by the end of World War II, when an estimated 20 milli ...
