donald trump ran for office as a candidate so deeply enmeshed in his family business that just about any remedy short of selling the trump organization would lead to conflicts of interest for his presidency. two months later, that’s exactly what we’ve got: conflicts galore. trump made a big pre-inaugural show of separating himself from active participation in the trump organization by turning control over to his children. yet he retains a financial stake in the enterprise, so any profits that accrue to the trump organization accrue to him too. but since trump has broken with four decades of tradition and a campaign promise by refusing to make his tax returns public (an outrage that he still should rectify), the nation doesn’t even know where all his conflicts might be. and as trump has rep

houston (ap) — president donald trump has made headlines with his swift action on immigration and vows to deport those living in the u.s. illegally who have a criminal past. now any immigrant charged or convicted of any offense, or even suspected of a crime, has become an enforcement priority for federal authorities.the stricter policy has brought new attention to a labyrinth of an immigration system where simply deporting someone is never a simple or time-efficient task. months, if not years, can pass. in the end, if the case is lost, the immigrant may find him or herself on a bus or plane heading back to his or her home country.but what exactly happens between the time someone is taken into custody and when they leave the u.s.? some basics on the court and deportation process:___most rea
