Niraj Warikoo Detroit Free Press Published 12:42 PM EDT Sep 7, 2018 For 28 years, Banny Doumbia has lived in the U.S. after immigrating from the Ivory Coast on a visa. Settling in Detroit, he opened two small businesses, a taxi services and auto repair shop, and co-founded a mosque, Islamic Community of As-Salaam. Doumbia, 52, became known as a community leader in the city's growing west African community and is the father of four children, ages 10 to 23. But according to U.S. immigration officials, he's undocumented and has several federal felony convictions for theft and bank fraud.

THE chances of Britain entering a no-deal Brexit are looking increasingly likely as Theresa May’s draft gets slammed by both Brexiteers and Remainers alike. But just what does a "No Deal" mean for the UK? We explain. What is a no-deal Brexit? A no-deal British departure from the European Union currently can mean a number of things. In the current climate, it would mean no formal agreement had been reached by the UK and the EU during the negotiating phase which comes to an end on March 29, 2019. The negotiations are taking place under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. The chances of a no-deal Brexit being in place by next year is now more likely than ever after a draft deal agreed by Theresa May’s Cabinet at Chequers last month looks likely to crumble. But what does a no-deal mean for the UK? A no-deal would mean scrapping a 21-month transitionary exit period on March 29, 2019, and the exit would be immediate. An instant exit would, however, mean that the UK would have no … [Read more...] about What is a no-deal Brexit, what’s the government’s latest advice and what would it mean for the UK?
Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Sep 6, 2018 Just one year ago, consumers woke up and discovered that hackers had one heck of a field day with their Social Security numbers and other information in a massive data breach at Equifax. Equifax's screw-up would forever leave millions just that much more vulnerable to ID theft. Face it, it's not like you can change the locks on the side door. Once hacked, your Social Security number is out there indefinitely. Beginning Sept. 21, though, a new federal law will help consumers stop intruders in their tracks. The three big credit reporting agencies — Equifax, Experian and TransUnion — will be required to offer you a credit freeze, free of charge. Such a freeze will restrict access to your credit file and help stop crooks from opening credit cards in your name. Also starting Sept. 21, parents across the country will be able to get a free credit freeze for children under … [Read more...] about Credit freeze: A misunderstood freebie that you actually want
