President Trump told reporters on Friday, “It starts on Sunday and they’re going to take people out and they’re going to bring them back to their countries. We are focused on criminals as much as we can before we do anything else.”When the raids did not begin as expected before dawn, advocacy groups began redirecting their efforts from helping the detainees to spreading information and awareness about immigrant rights.To that end, they are knocking on doors in immigrant-heavy neighborhoods, canvassing churches and supermarkets, and worked to keep people prepared.About 2,000 people around Miami-Dade County are expected to be detained. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids are still expected to take place Sunday in South Florida and several other cities across the country.Immigration reform advocates say that areas around Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco will be targeted in the raids, which are anticipated to last through at least Thursday.…..Sorry, can’t let them into our Country. If too crowded, tell them not to come to USA, and tell the Dems to fix the Loopholes – Problem Solved!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 14, 2019
In a bid to improve transparency and accountability in Ghana football, audited accounts of the Ghana Football Association will be published in the dailies.The yearly audits will be conducted by independent and external auditors appointed by the Congress.“The auditors shall be appointed for a period of three years and be internationally recognised entities. This mandate may be renewed.“The audited accounts will be published in the national dailies in compliance with the Company Act of Ghana.”The new statutes were approved at Thursday’s Extraordinary Congress with an almost unanimous endorsement from the delegates..Other amendments approved at the Congress were the limiting of the tenure of the GFA President to two terms of four years each and the reduction of the members of the Congress to 120.Erasing the doubtsThe use of the GFA’s funds has been a major issue, particularly for football fans who believe the football management body’s finances have not been used judiciously enough.Prior to the investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, several claims of corruption had been made against the Association and then-President Kwesi Nyantakyi.These allegations had been rebuffed constantly by the GFA but public perception remains largely negative.The GFA will hope that this new measure will erase any lingering doubts about the integrity of the Association.New statutesIn July, FIFA approved the recommendations made to the statutes of the GFA.Dr. Kofi Amoah had said earlier in an interview with GTV Sports that FIFA had assessed the recommendations for the statutes and what that would mean for the start of football in Ghana once again.
Jamie Carragher has told talkSPORT John Stones should turn his back on Chelsea and stay at Everton.The England central defender is wanted by the reigning Premier League champions, who have so far had two bids rejected, but the Anfield hero has urged the 21-year-old to remain on Merseyside.Carragher told Drivetime: “Every player should want to play at the highest level and win trophies, play in the Champions League and play for his country. That’s the aim of every player. It’s just [a question of] what is the right time for the player to go.“I think the right thing for John Stones would be to play for another couple of years at Everton. He’s playing really well but you have ups and downs as a young player, especially as a defender where you can make a couple of mistakes, give away a penalty, and your confidence goes. That’s part of being a defender and learning your trade.“I think it would be better for him to know he’s almost guaranteed to play week in, week out for Everton, go through those times with Everton, and then when he eventually gets his move to a top English club, as he will do, he’ll be going there a bit more experienced, a better player, and a bit more mature in his game.“When you get to that really top level, any little mistake, anything that’s not quite right, can cost your team a draw, or you drop three points, and that can end up costing a team the league title, or seeing them knocked out the Champions League.“You don’t want to be learning on the job when you’re at a top club. I think it would be better for him to spend another couple of years at Everton and then make that move.”
