Two Uighur Muslim detainees at Camp Iguana, Chinese citizens captured in Afghanistan but cleared of enemy combatant status, stage a crayon and sketchbook protest on June 1, 2009 inside their detention center compound in this photo cleared for release by the U.S. military at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. A judge ordered them set free last year but the Obama administration has yet to find a nation to grant them asylum. "We need to Freedom. Do not oppress us," says one page of their protest poster book in a neck-down photo that U.S. military censors insist upon to make the men unrecognizable. The men staged the protest Monday afternoon and the military withheld permission for their release until Tuesday morning.

  • Mexican man whose killing of woman on San Francisco pier launched national immigration debate found not guilty

    Jurors found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate not guilty of murder on Thursday in the killing of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier in a case that touched off a national immigration debate. Zarate had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation when Steinle was fatally shot in the back in 2015. Garcia Zarate didn't deny shooting Steinle and said it was an accident. Before the shooting, the San Francisco sheriff's department had released him from jail despite a federal immigration request to detain him for deportation. Its "sanctuary city" law limits cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. President Donald Trump cited the case during his campaign in a bid to show the country needed tougher immigration policies.
