Federal immigration officials on Monday detained a pastor of an evangelical church near Echo Park, an apparent example of how enforcement priorities have grown far stricter under the Trump administration. Noe Carias Mayorga, the pastor of the Southern Pacific District of the Assemblies of God, has lived in the country for 23 years after arriving from Guatemala without authorization as a teenager. He and his U.S. citizen wife of 14 years, Victoria Carias, have two children, age 5 and 6.
Tens of thousands of Haitians living temporarily in the U.S. after a devastating earthquake could lose their permission to remain in the country next year, shaking thousands of others with similar status, including many Central Americans residing in Los Angeles. The special status called Temporary Protective Status or TPS is granted to immigrants from certain countries that have been stricken by a crisis like war or natural disaster and who cannot safely return to their home country.
A new version of legislation long known as the Dream Act has returned to the Senate, but the bipartisan bill that seeks to protect young immigrants who arrived in the United States as minors likely faces an uphill climb. On Thursday morning, young immigrants and activists, gathered at the offices of a local immigrant advocacy group near downtown L.A. to watch on a large screen as Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) discussed their new bill.
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".
