President Donald Trump’s pick to lead the Homeland Security Department had her first confirmation hearing Wednesday. Trump’s pick for Homeland Security secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, had a very different response to her boss and potential colleague Attorney General Jeff Sessions at her Senate confirmation hearing. She was asked about the root causes of the Central American migration that overwhelmed Customs and Border Protection in 2014 and threatened to do so again in 2016.
The U.S. Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector has been continuing a policy of prosecuting first time offenders it started last spring after President Donald Trump took office. The agency has said the prosecution program lowers the recidivism rate in other of its sectors. "It is not a new policy. It’s something that’s been in effect for a few months now and we just want to remind the public that it’s all of Tucson sector to include Nogales," said Border Patrol spokeswoman Stephanie Dixson.
Patricia Mayorga was forced to flee northern Mexico after the murder of a colleague last spring. Now she’ll be honored with the Press Freedom Award from the Committee to Protect Journalists. Mayorga works for the investigative news magazine Proceso. She’s reported on human rights abuses, ties between Mexico’s ruling elite and organized crime and helps train young journalists in a country where so many have been killed for doing their job.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
