Puerto Rico Struggles to Rebuild from Hurricanes Say Religious Leaders
Hurricane Maria pummeled Puerto Rico last September 20th.

Jennifer Kerkhoff Will Never be a Federal Judge
The final admission of failure in the J20 case has made official what has been clear for some time - Jennifer Kerkhoff is done. As the public face of the J20 prosecution, she's going to take the hit for all the gaffes, misconduct, sanctions, dropped charges, and acquittals, however much or little of that was urged on her by her superiors. The best guess right now is she won't be disbarred, and will keep her job long enough that it doesn't look like she's being fired for screwing up this case. But she can wave goodbye to her chance at a federal judgeship or a partnership at a fancy DC law firm. It couldn't happen to a more deserving person.

Let Siham Biyah Come Home! No Deportations!
bostonmarchjusticeforsihana180122.jpgOn January 27, hundreds of defenders of immigrant rights from many leftist organizations, labor unions, churches and sanctuary networks rallied in Boston to protest the deportation of Siham Byah. A prominent Occupy Boston activist and single mother, Byah was grabbed by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) police last November 7, torn from her son, beaten in a local jail, driven to Virginia and then deported to Morocco. The Class Struggle Education League, based in Lowell, Mass. and New Hampshire participated in the protest, emphasizing the importance of mobilizing the power of workers action to stop the I.C.E. deportation machine. It also noted the parallel to the struggle against slave-catchers under the 1850 Fugitive Slave Act, a battle which came to a head in Boston and set the stage for the U.S. Civil War. The CSEL is undertaking joint work with the Internationalist Group.
