A MASSIVE number of people lined up Saturday morning

WASHINGTON Minkah Fitzpatrick Dolphins Jersey , Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- Big tech CEOs blast the Trump administration's decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on Tuesday, which puts 800,000 illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children at the danger of deportation.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday the DACA that was effectuated under the Obama administration is being rescinded.

In a written statement, U.S. President Donald Trump said he is looking forward with Congress to finally address the issue "in a manner that puts the hardworking citizens of our country first."

"I am deeply dismayed that 800,000 Americans - including more than 250 of our Apple coworkers - may soon find themselves cast out of the only country they've ever called home," said Apple CEO Tim Cook in an email to employees.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote via Facebook that "the decision to end DACA is not just wrong Rush Kenyan Drake Jersey , it is particularly cruel to offer young people the American Dream, encourage them to come out of the shadows and trust our government, and then punish them for it."

"Dreamers are our neighbors, our friends and our coworkers. This is their home. Congress needs to act now to defend DACA," Google CEO Sundar Pichai said via Twitter. As the DACA program was only open to those who have arrived in the U.S. at young age, the DACA recipients were often referred to as "Dreamers."

"Dreamers make our country and communities stronger Rush Jason Sanders Jersey ," said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. "We stand for diversity and economic opportunity for everyone."

Silicon Valley has long been opposing Trump administration's immigration policy as the tech industry relies heavily on multinational workforce.

A MASSIVE number of people lined up Saturday morning outside of the Telluride Film Festival’s Palm Theater — some for as long as three-and-a-half hours — to see Angelina Jolie and her new film “First They Killed My Father.”

Jolie’s fourth feature directorial effort, like her three prior — “In the Land of Blood and Honey” (2011), “Unbroken” (2014) and “By the Sea” (2015) — is very ambitious and very dark and could be very hard-to-market. Adapted by Loung Ung from her memoir of the same title, the film will be simultaneously released by Netflix in select theaters and on its streaming platform Sept. 15 and is a Khmer-language period piece about a family torn apart by the Khmer Rouge. It primarily is told from the perspective — literally and figuratively — of 7-year-old Ung, who is played by young Cambodian Sareum Srey Moch.

What sets the film apart is that it engages its audience and is more than just a history lesson or genre exercise or tribute to its principal character.

“First They Killed My Father” also bears a certain resemblance to another film about children caught up in war, “Beasts of No Nation Rush Kalen Ballage Jersey ,” which Netflix distributed two years ago.

“We’re making this first and foremost for Cambodia,” Jolie emphasized to the Telluride audience during a brief post-screening Q&A, adding that Saturday’s screening technically wasn’t the film’s world premiere since she has screened it in Cambodia for a native audience, many of whom had never seen a movie on a big screen.


LONDON, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Britain's upper house deputy speaker Michael Bates on Tuesday formally started his 1,000-mile walk from London to Berlin to commemorate the First World War centenary and raise funds to help child victims of modern-day wars and conflicts.

Bates Rush Durham Smythe Jersey , 53, is a conservative peer of Britain's House of Lords. He will be using his summer recess to walk the 1,000 miles between British and German capitals to fulfill his dual mission of remembrance and charity.

""The first goal is that we remember the suffering a hundred years ago around Europe and in the places that I am walking through,"" Bates, who was awarded a life peerage in 2008, told Xinhua.

He added: ""The second purpose is to raise funds for a charity that's helping children who are victims of war today in the Middle East and Africa.""

The inspiration for his walk Rush Jerome Baker Jersey , themed ""Walk for Peace"", was a speech the German chancellor Angela Merkel delivered to the British Parliament during her visit to London in February.

""If you look at the history of the conflict a hundred years ago, then it was principally between Britain and Germany,"" he noted.

""But the fact that we are partners in Europe, we are reconciled, we are friends in politics and in all walks of life Rush Jordan Phillips Jersey , and the fact that friendship endures, are something that I want to represent in my walk--a walk of friendship and peace,"" he said.

Supported by his wife Xuelin, a British Chinese community leader, the peer decided to raise funds for the German charity Friedensdorf, literally meaning ""Peace Village"" Rush DeVante Parker Jersey , following the couple's visit to the charity at Oberhausen city in western Germany, where it cares for hundreds of children from war-torn countries at any one time.

Before they set out on Tuesday morning, the couple joined a formal send-off ceremony from London's City Hall by friends and family, and paused for a while at the Poppies in the Moat at the Tower of London, which is a major part of London's WWI centenary commemorations.

This is the third walk which Bates has undertaken with the support of his wife. Last year he walked 518.8 miles from London to Derry, raising 54 Rush Xavien Howard Jersey ,000 pounds for Save the Children’s work in Syria.

Between 2011 and 2012, the senior British politician walked from Olympia of Greece to London, covering 2916.1 miles, to raise awareness for the UN-proposed Olympic truce.

The couple said all costs associated with the walk will be met fully by themselves ""so that every penny raised will go to the work of Friendensdorf.""

Bates will update regular photos and twitter feeds to verify his progress, and chronicle his walk i.
