Photo by Alvin Mahmudov on Unsplash That fight for marriage equality goes on. Unfortunately, Supreme Court rulings aren’t the end-all solution in the fight for marriage equality. As we discovered earlier this week with American indigenous people, there are legal exemptions and technicalities that can overrule a Supreme Court Ruling bringing in gay marriage to wide areas and nations like the U.S. Unfortunately, the same can be said for Mexico. According to Fronteras and Rio Salado College’s KJZZ, there are many...

At Unico 20° 87° on the scenic Riviera Maya near Cancun, it seems like you can have it all, up to and including an entirely child-free environment. Hooray, right? Built just a couple of years ago, Unico 20° 87° has been hell-bent on immersing their guests in modern Mexican culture while also giving them the luxury resort experience. And that can be some tricky plate-spinning. The name, which comes from its co-ordinates on a map, proves that dedication to its...

What will it take to get soccer fans to stop chanting a slur many people consider homophobic? FIFA told referees they can shut down play. And still the chants continue. MLS has done nothing since fans chanted “puto” at the L.A. Galaxy’s Pride Night in May. At least the Galaxy sent security guards to remove those attendees they caught chanting. But still, the chants continue. That was also the case Tuesday night when the Galaxy hosted Tijuana at Dignity Health...

Deep in the mountains of central Mexico, three or so hours from Mexico City, there is a beautiful Spanish Colonial town that is becoming one of the brightest spots on the international travel radar.  San Miguel de Allende has been a popular destination since the late 20th century, when American and Canadian artists began to move in and turn the town into an artist colony. Living in Mexico is cheap, and so is the real estate to open art galleries; and...

(Reuters) - A federal judge in San Francisco on Wednesday blocked the Trump administration from enforcing a new rule that aimed to bar almost all asylum applications at the U.S.-Mexico border. U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in the Northern District of California issued a preliminary injunction blocking the rule, which would require asylum-seekers to first pursue safe haven in a third country they had traveled through on their way to the United States. The decision makes inconsequential...

(Reuters) - A new U.S. rule aimed at slashing the number of asylum cases at the southern border with Mexico faces a court test on Wednesday when a federal judge will hear arguments about whether to block the measure pending trial. Groups led by the American Civil Liberties Union sued President Donald Trump’s administration after it issued a so-called interim final rule on July 16 that would require asylum-seekers to first pursue safe haven in a third country through...

WASHINGTON/MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration pushed ahead with its attempts to crack down on migration at the southern border on Monday, defending in court a virtual ban it imposed on asylum seekers and issuing its second sweeping order within a week. A U.S. district judge in Washington heard arguments about whether to temporarily strike down the first new rule, which is designed to bar almost all immigrants from applying for asylum at the country’s...

(Reuters) - The U.S. government on Friday named Brownsville, Texas, as a fifth city for processing applications from asylum seekers and other migrants returned to Mexico pending a decision, the latest initiative in President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policy. Migrant Protection Protocols, or MPP, is one of the few immigration programs initiated by the Trump administration that courts have allowed to proceed while a lawsuit to stop the program is under consideration. Federal judges have blocked other measures to...

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. government will start returning migrants to Mexico to wait out their U.S. court hearings in Mexico through Brownsville, Texas on Friday, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said. The program, known as the “Migrant Protection Protocols,” began in January this year and is already operational in several cities along the U.S.-Mexico border. This week the expansion will continue into the Rio Grande Valley, the spokeswoman said in an email,...

FIFA, the world organization that governs international soccer matches, recently launched a new simplified “disciplinary code” that highlights referees’ ability to end matches if fans utter homophobic or racist chants. The newly highlighted ability has existed since May 2017, leaving us to wonder how many referees will actually use it, what FIFA will do if they don’t and whether other stakeholders — like local governments, broadcasters, viewers and sponsors — will take action to end the hateful chants once and...

NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration on Monday moved to bar almost all immigrants from applying for asylum at the country’s southern border, requiring them to first pursue their claims in a third country they traveled through before seeking safe haven in the United States. The Department of Homeland Security, in a statement issued with the Department of Justice, said the interim rule would set a “new bar” for immigrants “by placing further restrictions or limitations on eligibility...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives approved a $733 billion defense policy bill on Friday, defying President Donald Trump’s veto threat by including provisions like a clampdown on funding for his planned wall on the border with Mexico. The House passed its version of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, by a 220 to 197 vote without a single Republican voting in favor of the bill and after some of the most liberal Democrats opposed...
