While the modern-day workplace is rife with technology and other advancements that have made it more efficient, productive and profitable from a business standpoint, it seems much of that progress is having an adverse effect on the collective waistline—and well-being in general—of America’s workforce.Details
The Black Alliance for Just Immigration, a national network that advocates for black immigrants, announced that it will fight President Donald Trump’s plans to restrict immigration of Africans to the United States from countries with large Muslim populations.
Although most Americans think of immigrants as being from Mexico or South America, a growing number of immigrants are black and are from Africa and the Caribbean.Details

One of President Trump’s executive orders on immigration dramatically expanded priorities that determine who can be deported. Immigrant rights advocates and attorneys say that under the expanded definition, nearly any undocumented immigrant could be considered a target.

As recently as October 2016 Mexico’s ambassador was confident Donald Trump would not be elected president. “It’s not going to happen,” Miguel Basañez told me at the time.
