LGBTQ people escaping persecution at home say they also face abuse in U.S. immigration detention facilities. There are currently more than 300,000 migrants applying for asylum in the U.S., with many applicants fleeing rampant gang violence and poverty in Central American countries. But a growing number of immigrants rights groups are calling attention to the plight of LGBTQ people, many of whom are seeking asylum because of persecution back home as a result of their gender affiliation and sexuality. Some also say they face similar mistreatment in U.S. immigration detention facilities.

The country is nearing a record-breaking harvest, but mysterious fires are threatening some of that production. Iraq is on track to reach a record production of wheat this year, but the success has been dampened by widespread fires that have destroyed thousands of acres of farmland in northern Iraq. The locations of the fires have raised suspicions, with most occurring in minority Sunni and Yazidi Arab farming communities in a region once terrorized by the Islamic State, and where disputes over land provide plenty of tinder to spark conflict.

Civil rights groups in Britain say use of the technology on the general public is ripe for abuse. As American privacy and civil liberties organizations call on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to suspend its use of facial recognition on the general public without sufficient safeguards, a similar push is underway in Britain, where police are testing the technology. In both countries, there are claims that facial recognition technology is currently in a legal vacuum and could affect free speech while monitoring everyday citizens.
