WASHINGTON – Groups and individuals are urgently raising money to help young immigrants meet an Oct. 5 Trump administration deadline to renew their permission to stay in the U.S., which costs $495 each. All across the country, immigration and community groups, and in the case of Rhode Island its governor, are providing “scholarships” and loans to cover the fee for immigrants to renew their enrollment in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.
WASHINGTON –The month that the nation celebrates its Latino roots is underway, but with the strained relationship between President Donald Trump and many in the Latino community, are people feeling celebratory? Hispanic Heritage Month began Friday a little over a week after hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, the majority of them Latino, were told the president was ending the deportation relief program that had let them stay legally in the U.S., go to school and get higher-paying jobs.
WASHINGTON – Playwright, actor and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda accepted an award at the Capitol Tuesday in a room with a likeness of Alexander Hamilton, whose story Miranda brought to Broadway and who's role in history he's implanted in the American conscience.

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".
