Advocates say detention facility has reversed cruel decision blocking immigrants from making calls

Advocates for immigrants jailed at notorious detention facility Otay Mesa Detention Center in California say that detainees are once again able to place calls to the advocates following community-led pressure demanding officials at Otay Mesa reverse a heinous decision earlier this month that blocked detained people from being able to place calls to their advocates. “#UnblockOtay worked!” tweeted Otay Mesa Detention Resistance, noting the assistance of advocates including the American Civil Liberties Union of San Diego & Imperial Counties. “Our numbers are unblocked! Thank you for calling!!! Together we all showed #TeamCoreCivic that they can't get away with trying to hide human rights abuses.”

Trump sank himself in Michigan. Biden didn't have to lift a finger

The reviews from Michigan are in and they are not looking good for Donald Trump. Not only have the last several polls of the state shown Joe Biden ahead by double digits, but one of those polls captured data showing that Trump likely has no one but himself to blame for surrendering the state. The New York Times/Siena poll released last week put Biden up by 11 points in the Great Lakes State, but it also tested the question in a half dozen battleground states, revealing that Michigan voters were far more likely than voters from other states to believe Trump had treated the state unfairly during the coronavirus response.

Minimum wage rises some places, but it's still the COVID-19 economy, this week in the war on workers

Unemployment remains sky-high (no matter what Donald Trump tries to tell you), and four million workers have had their pay or hours cut due to the pandemic. For people who are still on the job, there’s some good news in some cities and states in the form of minimum wage increases that went into effect on July 1. In Illinois, the minimum wage went from $9.25 an hour to $10. In Oregon, it went from $11.25 to $12. In Nevada, workers with health insurance will have an $8 minimum wage and workers without health coverage will get $9, up from $8.25. The minimum wage in Portland, Oregon, went from $12.50 to $13.25. Chicago rose from $13 to $14. More than a dozen other cities—most of them in California—and three counties had increases, too. The problem is that many workers, even those who are still employed, aren't getting the hours they need to get by.
