LGBT asylum seekers face separation at border

Asylum seekers in California who cross the border with a partner in hopes of avoiding persecution for being gay may face separation once they arrive in the United States. The problem is that only married couples are guaranteed to be kept together during processing and while waiting for a case to be heard. However, many gay couples arrive from countries where same-sex marriage is illegal.

Opioid use a possible factor in fatal two-car collisions

Residents of California who take opioids are no doubt familiar with their effects, which include psychomotor and cognitive impairment. This is especially true for those who are treating acute injuries like burns and broken bones whereas those on a chronic, stable prescription can develop a tolerance for the drugs and not be as affected.

The asylum deal leads to the deportation of migrants to Guatemala

California residents may be interested in the bilateral agreements the Trump administration has made with El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. The agreements are designed to ensure that each country shares the distribution of asylum claims. Officials are hoping that these agreements will curb the practice of seeking asylum in the U.S. as opposed to the countries that migrants have to travel through before crossing the U.S.-Mexican border.
