Treasury head wife mocked for photo of them holding money

Others used the image to mock the Republican tax plan, which critics say would mostly benefit high earners and corporations.The pair prompted a public outcry this summer after revelations he requested a military jet to fly them to their European honeymoon.

Suit alleges Motel 6 discriminated against Latino customers

first_imgPHOENIX – A civil rights group sued Motel 6 on Tuesday, alleging it discriminated against some Latino customers at two locations in Phoenix by giving their whereabouts and personal information to U.S. immigration agents who later arrested at least seven guests.The lawsuit by the Mexican American Legal Defence and Educational Fund said Motel 6 had a corporate policy or practice of giving Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents information that guests provided at check-in.It also alleges that Motel 6 provided such information without requiring authorities to get a warrant or without having a reasonable suspicion that crimes were being committed.“We are seeking to deter any (law enforcement) operation of this sort,” said Thomas Saenz, president of the civil rights group.Motel 6 declined to comment on the lawsuit but said in a statement that it takes guests’ privacy seriously.The national budget motel chain said in September that its Phoenix employees will no longer work with immigration authorities after the Phoenix New Times newspaper reported that workers were providing guests’ names to agents who later arrested 20 people on immigration charges.In a tweet at the time, Motel 6 said: “This was implemented at the local level without the knowledge of senior management.”Earlier this month, the Washington state attorney general sued the chain, saying it had violated a state consumer protection law by providing the private information of thousands of guests to immigration agents without a warrant.The lawsuit alleged Motel 6 was aware that agents used the registration information to single out guests based on their national origin. Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s office began investigating after news reports about the Phoenix case.The chain has said it had told its more than 1,400 locations that they were prohibited from voluntarily providing guest lists to immigration authorities.The Phoenix lawsuit was filed in federal court on behalf of eight unnamed Latinos who stayed at two Motel 6 locations in the city during June and July. All but one of the eight was arrested.ICE agents visited some of the guests at their motel rooms a day after they showed passports, driver’s licenses or identification cards issued by the Mexican government to Motel 6 employees, according to the lawsuit.As a result, one woman was deported from the United States, while a man spent 30 days in a detention centre until he could raise a $7,500 bond. In two instances, ICE agents laughed when guests asked them whether Motel 6 had provided their personal information, the lawsuit said.It said the eight guests had a reasonable expectation that their information would not be shared with federal authorities and alleged that the discrimination was made because of their race or national origin.The Latinos who sued said they suffered emotional distress, fear and humiliation.They are seeking undisclosed financial damages and are asking a judge to declare the information sharing a violation of anti-discrimination law and constitutional protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.Immigration and Customs Enforcement wasn’t targeted in the lawsuit. Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe, a spokeswoman for the agency’s operation in Arizona, declined to comment on it.___Follow Jacques Billeaud at twitter.com/jacquesbilleaud.

BJP banks on sitting MP Rao Inderjit Singh for Gurugram

first_imgGurugram: BJP has once again relied on Rao Inderjit Singh for Gurugram Lok Sabha constituency seat. After the BJP announced his name on Saturday, Singh will be hoping to win from the Gurugram seat for the fifth time. Rao Inderjit is the son of Rao Birender Singh who has also won from the Gurugram seat a number of times.In 1998, Rao Inderjit Singh contested from Congress and won. His victory was shortlived as in 1999 he was defeated by Sudha Yadav from BJP who besides being a tall leader of the saffron party is also the widow of Sukhbir Singh Yadav, a martyr in Kargil war. In 2004, Rao Inderjit defeated Sudha Yadav and from thereon he has been winning the Gurugram Lok Sabha seat regularly from Congress and BJP seats. In 2014, Rao Inderjit for the first time fought on BJP ticket and won by more than one lakh votes. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderDespite being a prominent leader nationally, Rao Inderjit in the past has not shied away in expressing his displeasure on the workings of the state government. Recently, he disagreed with the state government policy of moving the substantial portion of Aravallis out of the Punjab land and preservation act (PLPA). He has also stated several times that it is the Central government that has played a much greater part in revamping the city’s infrastructure by improving roads and connectivity. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThough Rao Birender Singh and his son have had a formidable record in winning the Ahirwal belt maximum number of times, they have been defeated a few times. After the emergency, Rao Birender Singh of Congress was defeated by lawyer Manohar Lal Saini from Janata Party. Later in 1980 elections, Saini was defeated by Rao Birender Singh. The victorious reign of Rao Birender Singh carried on with huge wins in 1984 and 1989 elections. The tides for Rao Birender Singh changed in 1991 elections when he was defeated by Colonel Ram Singh, a retired Army soldier who had represented India in 1962 and 1965 war with China and Pakistan respectively. Colonel Singh was instrumental in ensuring BJP win for the first time in the belt when he defeated Rao Birender Singh in 1996 General elections. This is for the last time Rao Birender Singh contested in the General elections.last_img read more
