“Detroit embodies the values and character of the Democratic Party,” said DNC Chair Tom Perez. “It’s a city of grit and determination, a city that has gotten knocked down only to get back up stronger. With its diversity, its storied history, and its proud ties to the labor movement, Detroit is the perfect place for our party’s second debate.” The second debate will be broadcast live on CNN, CNN International, and CNN en Español. An unauthenticated live stream of the debate will also be available for all users on CNN’s website, mobile apps and connected TVs via CNNgo. The debate lineups for each night will be determined at random to provide each candidate with a fair opportunity to make his or her case to a large, national audience.

Mantener Familias Juntas
El presidente Donald Trump revirtió su desacreditado argumento el miércoles de que no tenía autoridad para detener la separación de familias de inmigrantes indocumentados de la frontera, y firmó una orden ejecutiva para mantener a padres e hijos juntos.
“Estamos firmando una orden ejecutiva, creo que es una orden ejecutiva muy importante, se trata de mantener a las familias unidas, mientras que al mismo tiempo estamos seguros de que tenemos una frontera muy fuerte y muy fuerte”, dijo Trump.
El descenso de Trump se produjo después de que enfrentara una intensa presión del espectro político y de líderes religiosos, políticos y mundiales para detener las separaciones, que produjeron días de noticias desgarradoras sobre niños llorando, algunos de los cuales permanecieron en centros de detención similares a una jaula.
El presidente afirmó, sin embargo, que no retrocedió.
“La frontera es igual de difícil, pero queremos mantener unidas a las familias”, dijo Trump en la Oficina Oval. “mantener a las familias juntas”.

“Esta crisis no ha terminado. Miles de niños están separados de sus padres sin un plan claro sobre cómo reunirlos. La administración actual ha creado por sí sola una tragedia humana sin planes para deshacer el daño que se ha hecho.
El presidente debe poner fin a su política fronteriza de “cero tolerancia” para evitar daños mayores y dejar de encarcelar a las familias y los niños que huyen de la violencia y la opresión. Esta política carece de humanidad, no nos hace más seguros y, de hecho, desvía los recursos de las amenazas reales a la seguridad de nuestra nación.
El daño se ha hecho a la humanidad y la dignidad de los niños y las familias directamente afectadas y a nuestra nación en general.
Debemos tener un plan integral de inmigración que refleje nuestros valores y honre nuestras tradiciones.” –Cory Booker
Todos nosotros deberíamos estar sufriendo en este momento por las noticias de niños que fueron arrancados de sus familias en la frontera. Esto no es correcto y debería perturbar y activar nuestro sentido moral. ⠀
No tiene que ser así. La Administración de Trump puede elegir de inmediato revertir su política inhumana que separa por la fuerza a las familias. ⠀
Cada día que pasa cuando los niños son separados de sus padres y colocados en condiciones espantosas, la Administración Trump está cometiendo actos vandálicos morales contra nuestros ideales como nación, robando a las familias afectadas ya todos nosotros la dignidad y la humanidad. ⠀
No podemos estar en silencio. Esa no es la forma estadounidense. No guarde silencio durante este tiempo: el silencio es complicidad, hable, llame a su congresista y senador, despierte los corazones de los demás, no sea solo un espectador en este momento moral de nuestra historia.

She was born in a family of two teachers, but after both her parents died in a car crash, she became a victim of abuse by her relatives. Escaping from a situation of enslavement, Tigist ends up on the streets of Addis Ababa. Without a place to sleep or anyone to call for, she is quickly surrounded by predators and has to fight for her surivival.
2 Girls is a character-driven and observational documentary about two young women, who are linked to each other through a universal journey of poverty and abuse for the sake of dreaming a better life. It’s a heartbreakingly harsh journey, where Lota and Tigist meet their hopes and destinies. Yet, despite their tough lives, they reveal an inner strength and great dignity. They come from poverty, they fall into even worse conditions, but they never stop striving to improve their state. Overwhelmed by global injustice and gender-oriented abuse, Lota and Tigist manage to keep their souls uncorrupted by the wrongdoings they face.
The story of 2 Girls is a story lived every day by millions of girls all around the world but rarely has it been told with the same power of testimony than in this documentary,
