Woman Seeking Asylum From Domestic Abuse Sues Trump Administration For Taking Her 7-Year-Old Son!

no title

What could Donald Trump possibly say to justify this??

Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia is a Guatemalan national who came to the United States seeking asylum from a dangerous domestic abuse situation in which she feared for her life.

When she did, all she found was more abuse — at the hands of the U.S. government, who took her 7-year-old son, Darwin, by force and refused to tell her where he was.

Now, according to a DailyMail.com report, she's filed a lawsuit which will test Trump's cruel policy toward immigrants.

Here's some background:

For years the U.S. has granted abused women asylum because the misogynistic governments of their home countries were unwilling to protect a woman from her husband.

We were the good guys.

Last week Attorney General Jeff Sessions officially dropped the protection for abused women.

Mejia-Mejia may have gotten in under the wire as she entered back in May. But she was still subject to the new "family separation" policy.

In order to seek asylum, you have to be in the country, which means you have to enter illegally then make your request.

Under Trump's new "zero tolerance" policy, everyone who enters illegally, no matter the reason, is thrown into a prison camp and prosecuted. Not turned away, not sent back. Jailed.

More cruelly, as has caused much controversy over the past couple weeks, is the new policy of taking these parents' children away — sometimes by trickery and sometimes by force — and throwing them into their own prison camps.

It's that policy Mejia-Mejia is challenging with her lawsuit, filed in Federal District Court on Tuesday against 6 federal agencies and 10 senior officials.

The suit says after Mejia-Mejia turned herself in to Border Patrol to request asylum, agents refused to tell her where they were taking her boy:

Finally! Trump Family & Their Charity Sued By New York AG For 'Persistent Illegal Conduct'!

no title

With all the other Donald Trump scandals, everyone forgets about the cruelest — his charity scam.

For years the Trump family has allegedly been using the Trump Foundation to steal from real charities, and it's disgusting.

But the New York State Attorney General's office didn't. They announced on Thursday they're suing the Trump Foundation for what they call "a pattern of persistent illegal conduct."

Dr. Luke Thinks Kesha Cost Him $50 MILLION Now?! And How Much From Katy Perry??!

no title

UPDATE 4:47 P.M. EST: The lawyers behind Dr. Luke (AKA Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald) have released the following statement:

"Kesha's false accusations have caused tremendous damage to Dr. Luke, his family and his businesses. Kesha's recent court filing misstates and misrepresents an expert accountant's calculations of certain revenue that Mr. Gottwald has lost as a result of Kesha's false accusations. The ultimate amount of Dr. Luke's damages is for a jury to decide."

We'll continue to keep you updated.


The ongoing legal battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke just ballooned into BIG numbers!

In legal docs obtained by The Blast, the producer is now claiming a whopping $50 million in damages from the singer who accused him of abuse.

Dr. Luke says he would have made $29.9 million in royalties and $8.7 million from co-writing fees if Kesha hadn't made her claims.

He also included $10.2 mil from his potential future work with Katy Perry, who kicked him to the curb before making Witness.

Um, is that legally Kesha's fault though? Katy easily could have made her own decision after listening to someone else's story, right? Like, say, Kelly Clarkson, who says she willingly left millions of dollars on the table just to avoid him?

Kesha herself filed a similar legal response; she argued those inflated numbers are based on his past years of hits with top performers, whom she says he should not have expected to be able to get.

We'll just have to see how the court rules.

Bob Marley's Granddaughter Plans Lawsuit After Being Mistaken As Burglar At Airbnb Rental

no title

Bob Marley's granddaughter plans to sue the Rialto Police Department in California after she and two guests were mistaken as thieves at their rented Airbnb property.

On April 30, Sharon Marley's daughter Donisha Prendergast (above) and her two friends — Kells Fyffe-Marshall and Komi-Oluwa Olafimihan — were spotted packing luggage into their car outside of their San Bernardino rental.

A neighbor allegedly failed to "recognize the vehicle or the people as neighbors, or the homeowner" and called 911, allegedly thinking the three — who are all black — were burglars.

After the cops arrived at the scene, authorities eventually confirmed they were "Airbnb renters and were at the residence as guests."

According to the New York Daily News, on Monday, the three served the police department with notice of a pending lawsuit for the incident.

Marley's descendant, who is being represented by Miami-based lawyer Jasmine Rand, posted video of the scene on Instagram with the following caption:

"Got surrounded by the police for being black in a white neighbourhood. Smh. I'm sad and irritated to see that fear is still the first place police officers go in their pursuit to serve and protect, to the point that protocol supersedes their ability to have discernment. Many have suffered and died in moments like these. That's a crazy reality check. Give Thanks for life, and the ability to stand our ground. We are stronger together. Use your voice collectively."
