first_imgThe Assam government has sent a proposal to the Centre for fast-tracking the establishment of 10 detention centres across the State to house people who would be excluded from the final National Register of Citizens (NRC).The Supreme Court-monitored register, being updated on the basis of its 1951 avatar, has to be published by July 31.Officials said each of the 10 new centres would accommodate an estimated 3,000 people. This implies the government has plans for at least 60,000 people among a few lakh expected to be excluded from the NRC. NRC exclusionAbout 40.07 lakh people out of 3.29 crore applicants had been excluded from the draft NRC published on July 30, 2018. Another 1.02 lakh people were removed from the draft list of citizens on June 26.The excluded have been given an opportunity to file claims for reinclusion in the NRC. “We have sent the proposal for 10 new centres in various places for NRC-excluded people,” Kumar Sanjay Krishna, Assam’s Additional Chief Secretary (Home and Political) told The Hindu on Wednesday. As per the blueprint, a detention centre each would be established in Barpeta, Dima Hasao, Goalpara, Kamrup (Metropolitan), Karimganj, Lakhimpur, Nagaon, Nalbari, Sivasagar, and Sonitpur districts.Mr. Krishna also said a full-fledged detention centre was being readied in Goalpara district for declared foreigners presently lodged across six central jails in the State. The Supreme Court had ordered the State government not to club declared foreigners with criminals in jails. The Assam government had three years ago allotted 20 bighas of land for this detention centre in the Dakurbhita area of Goalpara district. Constructed by the Assam Police Housing Corporation Ltd. at a cost of ₹37 crore, the centre is expected to be inaugurated in October.Envisaging law and order issues after July 31, the deadline given by the Supreme Court to publish the final NRC, the State Home Department has organised a series of meetings from July 12-23 across six divisions of Assam.Heads of administration, police and intelligence agencies of the districts under each division have been asked to attend the meetings to be held in Tezpur, Nagaon, Jorhat, Silchar, Bongaigaon, and Guwahati. The Bharatiya Gorkha Parisangha (BGP) has suggested that the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Election Commission of India should adopt a mechanism to solve the issue of ‘D’, or doubtful voters for a free and fair NRC in Assam.“We met Prateek Hajela, the State Coordinator for NRC on Tuesday,” said Nanda Kirati Dewan, the BGP’s National Secretary. “He made it clear that NRC cannot reconsider the cases of people marked D-voter even if he or she has sufficient linkage documents and the legacy person [one whose lineage is claimed] or other family members are not D-voters,” Mr. Dewan added. “Data suggest that most cases of exclusion are either of D-voter, cases pending at a Foreigners’ Tribunal (FT), declared foreigner or instances of mismatch in legacy data. But there are many marked D-voters without any case referred to the Assam Police’s border wing or any FT. The Centre should come up with a mechanism to screen such cases and issue a D-Voter Clearance Certificate to the person concerned for ending unnecessary harassment,” Mr. Dewan suggested.last_img read more

first_imgSuresh Kalmadi.Officials in the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee’s (OC) headquarters are tight-lipped about the nearly-completed audit of accounts of the OC by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India’s office.As the files are moved out of the OC headquarters at 1 Jai Singh Road, some have hinted that it will be tough for the sacked OC boss, Suresh Kalmadi and his close associates to clear the air on accreditation, the ticketing mess, overlays and the Beijing Olympics junket.The CAG started its audit of the OC’s accounts on November 15, 2010. A CAG official said: “We are still in the drafting stage, as we are corroborating the collected data with the agencies involved with the CWG, including the Union sports ministry and the Delhi government.”The CAG will not question the OC directly, but through the concerned ministries – sports, urban development, finance and the Delhi government. The source said: “Many who attended the OC-led Beijing trip, which included over 160 people, had virtually no role to play in the Games.””The major worry for the OC would be to clarify the suspicion over the ‘restrictive’ bidding process done for the overlays contract,” a senior OC official said. It is alleged the Rs 800 crore overlays contract was drafted to deliberately keep many competitors outside the bidding process. It eventually went to a UK firm, inviting criticism of favouritism.last_img read more

first_imgRoma captain Daniele de Rossi: Retirement ever closerby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAS Roma captain Daniele de Rossi admits he senses his career is coming to the end.The 35-year-old has been out since October 28 with a cartilage injury, and is unlikely to be fit to face Juventus on Saturday.“When I was young I’d have signed in any way to play half the Serie A games I have,” De Rossi told DAZN.“I’m a lucky guy, I’ve done the job I love, in the city I love, with the people I love. It weighs on me to look over the ravine, because I know the end is near, especially with this injury.“I’ve tasted what it means to be away from the squad, and I know it’s going to hurt me when I stop doing this job.“Whether that’s six months, a year, or three years, time is running out on my career.“This is the most serious injury of my career, it’s a cartilage problem, I’ve suffered a serious injury. It would be very serious if I were to tear it again at 35.“It takes time, I’ve started running and kicking the ball but I’m still behind.“The future? I have this dream of being a Coach, and if I have to think about all the things a Coach has to do what scares me most is doing 100 interviews a week!” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Ohio State senior forward Sammy Edwards surveys the field during the second half of the Buckeyes’ 7-0 win against Illinois at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on Sept. 14. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorThe No. 15 Ohio State women’s soccer team (11-2-1, 6-1-0 Big Ten) extended its unbeaten streak to five games with a 1-0 win over Michigan (5-4-6, 2-3-3 Big Ten) Sunday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Senior forward Sammy Edwards led the way for the Buckeyes with five shots and a goal. The Buckeyes had their breakthrough in the 81st minute as senior forward Eleanor Gabriel tore down the right side of the field and crossed the ball in through the penalty area to a streaking Edwards, where the ball was one timed into the back of the net, the lone goal of the game.The rivalry with Michigan delivered another intense game, as physical play dominated the matchup and it was clear neither team would allow any easy goals. “Just knowing it’s Michigan I think everyone is a little more hype,” Edwards said. “I definitely come into this game very pumped up and I know it’s across the board.”Ohio State outshot Michigan 17-4, and Kerr needed to make only one save. The shutout marks Ohio State’s fifth consecutive clean sheet, the longest streak since 2012. The first half provided a slow, tactical pace from both teams, neither giving the other strong chances at the goal. Most of the half was played around the midfield area as both teams battled back and forth with strong defensive plays. “It’s definitely a mental battle,” Edwards said. “A win on a Sunday can be hard. We sometimes come out slow just from having dead legs but instead of coming out slow we came out fast and set the tone for the game.”Possession favored the Buckeyes in the first half, but both teams spent most of the half measuring the defensive style of the other. Ohio State outshot the Wolverines 6-1, despite neither team finding any strong offensive footing. Michigan’s only shot in the first half came close to finding the back of the net as midfielder Sara Stratigakis sliced into the penalty area and fired a strong shot on goal, which was saved by Ohio State goalkeeper Devon Kerr. The best chance of the half for the Buckeyes came in the 33rd minute on a corner from midfielder Nikki Walts. The ball slipped out of the pack of players to Edwards, who connected with a shot that sailed just above the crossbar. The second half began with a much more frantic pace, with Ohio State leading several quick offensive attacks, which resulted in three shots.Michigan’s best opportunity of the half came on a loose ball play in the 61st minute as a defensive error led to an open lane for midfielder Katie Foug, whose close-range shot flew just over the goal. The Buckeyes had a prime chance to score in the 74th minute as a grounded cross rolled through the box to Edwards, whose shot hit the left post. Michigan goalkeeper Sarah Jackson dove for the ball and missed as it rebounded off the post right on the goal line, but all Ohio State players could do was watch as the ball was cleared by a Michigan defender. “We rely on each other,” Edwards said. “You turn to your teammates and realize that you’re not the only tired one, and you’re not alone when you hit the post. We just look to each other when someone messes up, and I think that contributes to our success a lot.”Ohio State maintained an aggressive play style for the rest of the game, not letting Michigan create many attacks and pelting the Michigan keeper with more shots. Michigan continued trying to apply pressure and equalize, but the patient attack and rigid defense of Ohio State proved too much for the Wolverines. Ohio State’s next game is Thursday against Big Ten opponent Maryland. read more

first_img Share APPeople gather at Saint Mark Catholic Church for a solidarity with migrants vigil, Thursday, June 21, 2018 in El Paso, Texas. President Donald Trump’s order ending the policy of separating immigrant families at the border leaves a host of unanswered questions, including what happens to the more than 2,300 children already taken from their parents and where the government will house all the newly detained migrants in a system already bursting at the seams. (AP Photo/Matt York)Two days after President Donald Trump ordered an end to the separation of families at the border, federal authorities Friday were still working on a plan to reunite an estimated 1,800 children with their parents and keep immigrant households together.Immigration and Customs Enforcement posted a notice saying it is looking into creating 15,000 beds for use in detaining immigrant families. A day earlier, the Pentagon agreed to provide space for as many as 20,000 migrants on U.S. military bases.Beyond that, however, there was nothing but frustration and worry for many of the parents separated from their children and placed in detention centers for illegally entering the country over the past several weeks.Some parents struggled to get in touch with youngsters being held in many cases hundreds of miles away, in places like New York and the Chicago area. Some said they didn’t even know where their children were.Trump himself took a hard line on the crisis, accusing the Democrats of telling “phony stories of sadness and grief.”“We cannot allow our country to be overrun by illegal immigrants,” the president tweeted.More than 2,300 children were taken from their families at the border in recent weeks. A senior Trump administration official said that about 500 of them have been reunited since May.Trump’s decision to stop separating families, announced Wednesday after a fierce international outcry, has led to confusion and uncertainty along the border.Federal agencies are working to set up a centralized reunification process for all remaining children at a detention center in Texas, said the senior administration official, who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.An ICE official said it is unclear how families will be reunified.“It’s a big question. There have not been a lot of answers,” Henry Lucero, a director of field operations, confessed at a forum in Weslaco, Texas.In the meantime, federal authorities appear to be easing up on the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy of prosecuting all adults caught illegally entering the U.S. — though the Justice Department flatly denied there has been any change.The federal public defender’s office for the region that covers El Paso to San Antonio said in an email that prosecutors will no longer charge parents with illegally entering the U.S. if they have children with them.Outside the federal courthouse in McAllen, immigration attorney Efren Olivares said 67 people were charged Friday morning with illegal entry, but none were parents with children. He said it was the first time since May 24 that that happened in McAllen.“It appears that this is a consequence of a change in policy by the government,” he said.ICE has only three facilities nationwide — two in Texas, one in Pennsylvania — that can be used to detain immigrant families, and they have a combined 3,300 beds.The one in Dilley, Texas, opened in 2015 on a remote site that was once an encampment for oil workers. It contains collections of cottages built around playgrounds and common areas, but also has high security.Finding space is not the only hurdle: Under a 1997 court settlement that the Trump administration is trying to overturn, children can be held with their parents in detention centers for no more than 20 days.Zenen Jaimes Perez of the Texas Civil Rights Project said immigrant families are still awaiting details from the administration on how parents and children are to be reunited.“It could take a couple of months, a couple of days … but we don’t have timelines,” Jaimes Perez said. “What we need to hear is what the administration says this process is going to look like, because we don’t know.”The group has been interviewing migrants each morning at the McAllen courthouse and entering information into a database to help keep track of parents and children held in different facilities, sometimes scattered around the country.Olivares said it is difficult for government agencies to reunite immigrant families once they are separated because the systems that process adults and those that handle youngsters often don’t communicate with each other.Adults accused of immigration offenses are under the authority of the Homeland Security Department, while youngsters taken from their parents are overseen by Health and Human Services.Meanwhile, a 7-year-old boy and his mother, separated a month ago, were reunited Friday after she sued in federal court and the Justice Department agreed to release the child.They were brought back together around 2:30 a.m. at Baltimore-Washington International Airport in Maryland, hours after the government relented.The mother, Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia, had filed for political asylum after crossing the border with her son, Darwin, following a trek from Guatemala. She said that she cried when the two were reunited and that she is never going to be away from him again.But a 31-year-old Brazilian man held in Cibola County Correctional Center in Milan, New Mexico, said he didn’t know when he would see his 9-year-old son again.The father told the AP in a phone interview that he spoke to his son once by phone since they were separated 26 days earlier. The man, who is seeking asylum, spoke on condition of anonymity because, he said, a gang is looking for him in Brazil for failure to pay an $8,000 debt.The man said he worries about his son, who speaks only Portuguese.“He cried. He was so sad,” the father said. “I had promised him it would only be three to five days.”On Capitol Hill, in yet another abrupt reversal by the president, Trump on Friday told fellow Republicans in Congress to “stop wasting their time” on immigration legislation until after the November elections.Stubborn differences between conservative and more moderate Republicans have stalled legislation on Capitol Hill.last_img read more
