Florida residents buck proposed immigration detention center

About 250 southwest Broward residents attended a Saturday meeting in the city of Pembroke Pines to tell local and federal officials, as well as prison industry executives, that they don’t want an immigration detention center built in their area.

N.C. ultrasound law challenged by ACLU, Planned Parenthood

Last week a coalition of civil rights and reproductive rights advocates filed a lawsuit against the state of North Carolina’s law requiring abortion providers to show women an ultrasound and describe the images in detail four hours before having an abortion, even if the woman does not want to see the images. According to a press release , the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of North Carolina Legal Foundation, Planned Parenthood Health Systems, Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina and the Center for Reproductive Rights allege that “the new law violates the rights of health care providers and women seeking abortions.” Gov. Bev Perdue vetoed the legislation when it reached her desk, but the state Legislature was able to override her veto.
