“Lawyers for Jumana Nagarwala, the Michigan emergency-room doctor accused of performing genital mutilation on young girls, plan to invoke a defense based on freedom of religion, the Detroit Free Press reported.
While the law, enacted in 1996, is clear that cutting a girl’s genitals is illegal, the defense will claim the girls in question were not actually cut, but rather scraped for religious reasons. Thus, they will propose that not only was no harm was done, but the defendants themselves are victims of religious persecution by the U.S. government.” More here.> Michigan Doctor Accused of Performing FGM to Claim Freedom of Religion Defense

HARTFORD, Conn. — “A student originally from Mexico, Eric Cruz Lopez was among the most visible immigration activists on the University of Connecticut campus — up until he was charged with spray-painting expletives about President Donald Trump on the walls of school buildings.
Now his arrest is hurting the push for a bill that would allow students without legal immigration status at the state’s public colleges and universities access to financial aid.
Cruz, who had testified himself in favor of the legislation, was charged on May 7 with more than 100 counts of misdemeanor vandalism. Police said he gave a statement admitting to the vandalism. He did not respond to requests for comment.
The case led state House leaders to postpone a planned vote last week on legislation that would open up $165 million in institutional financial aid to students without legal status at public colleges and universities. Those students are studying under an Obama-era executive order known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which grants them special visas.” More here.> Immigrant student’s arrest scuttles Connecticut legislation

“Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza said German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s comments that were critical of the United States are actually a good thing.
At a campaign event in Munich, Merkel said that the “times when [Germany] could fully rely on others are somewhat over. That’s what I’ve experienced in recent days.”
“We Europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands,” she said.
The comments were seen as a slight at President Trump, who pressed NATO members to pay its dues and passed on immediately endorsing the alliance’s global warming doctrine.” More here.> D’Souza: Merkel’s US Comments a ‘Declaration of Independence’ for Germany Video.> D’Souza: Merkel’s U.S. comments a “Declaration of Independence” for Germany
