Juan Coronilla-Guerrero — a 28-year-old Mexican man whose wife pleaded with a U.S. federal judge that he would be killed if he was deported — was found murdered in Central Mexico, the Austin American-Statesman first reported. Coronilla-Guerrero’s body was found on the side of a road in San Luis de la Paz, Guanajuato, the publication reported Monday, 40 minutes away from where he had been living with his wife’s mother and his son. He had been deported from the United States three months ago.
A 41-year-old female detained at the southern U.S. border was told by a border agent that she didn’t have the right to speak with the Mexican consulate before she was deported. “Where does it say you have a right? I don’t see anything.’ He then placed me in detention and shut the door,” the woman who was deported to Ciudad Juárez told immigrant rights advocates.
Last year, 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi was found facedown along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea as he and his family fled towards the European Union, away from the Syrian civil war. Photos of his lifeless body jolted a global response, motivating people to question the treatment that refugees undergo. This year, similar outrage was expressed after 5-year-old Omran Daqneesh was pulled from the rubble in Aleppo, photographed bloodied and in shock.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
