Immigration activist Maru Mora-Villalpando called on the head of the state Department of Licensing to resign, as Mora-Villalpando and supporters revealed emails last week that showed that the Washington State license department provided her private information to Immigration and Customs Enforcement without a warrant. After Mora-Villalpando’s information was passed to federal authorities, ICE began deportation proceedings against Mora-Villalpando, a prominent immigration activist, in December.
Dozens of bystanders witnessed Pasco police officers shoot at Antonio Zambrano-Montes over thirteen times on Tuesday. It was the latest in a string of recent incidents where Pasco police have used deadly force against citizens, and evoked an angry response from locals and family members who gathered outside Pasco City Hall yesterday. Zambrano-Montes, an orchard worker with roots in Michoacan, Mexico, was throwing rocks into a busy street outside of a Fiesta Foods supermarket in downtown Pasco.
Two eastern Washington cities, Yakima and Pasco, saw increased Hispanic representation on the city councils in the past three years, after replacing their at-large, city-wide elections with district elections. Ruben Alvarado is one of Pasco’s newest city council members and among the city’s first three Latinos on its council. He said despite Pasco’s population being 55 percent Hispanic, many of those residents did not participate in elections until the city adopted district elections.
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".
