A proposed partnership between a Bucks County police department and federal immigration enforcement derailed a run-of-the-mill township council meeting Monday night. Around 200 attendees packed the Bensalem Municipal Building, some carrying drums and wearing green peacock feather headdresses, to voice their opposition to a plan to train local police to evaluate people they come into contact with for immigration offenses.
On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Justice filed an appeal to the Third Circuit in a case that pitted the federal agency against so-called “sanctuary cities,” the Philadelphia Mayor’s office has confirmed. “We’ve received notice that the DOJ has appealed Judge Baylson’s ruling, and we will vigorously defend the judge’s well-reasoned decision,” said Ajeenah Amir, spokeswoman for Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney.
Five days into his first term, President Donald Trump issued an executive order taking aim at “sanctuary jurisdictions,” characterizing them as willful law-breakers rending the “very fabric of our Republic.”As the first anniversary of Trump’s inauguration approaches, the sanctuary term has taken on a life of its own in Philadelphia. It’s become both a rallying cry for pro-immigrant groups and an ongoing accusation from federal officials.
"He works 12 hours a day, he gets up at 3, leaves here at 3:30 in the morning for 12 hours,” Paul Frame told his husband, Ivan Nuñez, who is in the country illegally. “I said, ‘If you get legal, you don’t have to do that sh– anymore.’ ” https://twitter.com/LEBenshoff/status/964525404995407872
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".
