"An estimated 3.6 million illegal immigrants in America were brought here as 

children — a stunning figure more than three times higher than one commonly 

used in the contentious political debate over the fate of so-called Dreamers, USA 

Today reported. The larger number isn't widely known because so much 

attention is currently focused on the 800,000 immigrants protected by the 

Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — and 

terminated by President Donald Trump last September."

*"The fight in defense of Carolina beach (in Puerto Rico) reactivates. After 10 

years of legal disputes and demonstrations against the Marriott hotel continuing 

to build above the maritime zone in the Isla Verde area, the municipality of 

Carolina decided to cede the land to the company CH Constructions as part of a 

negotiation to backs of the town. This makes the Playas Pa'l Pueblo Camp, the 

longest act of civil disobedience in our history, more valid than ever as a defense 

mechanism for our coastal zone in the metro area.

But the existence of the camp is in jeopardy since it dropped a court order in 

favor of the eviction of the activists. This caused the reactivation of both the 

militancy of the environmentalists and the aggressiveness of the management of 

the Marriott hotel when sending agitators to the camp area."

*"Will we ever be able to trust driverless cars? By Theo Leggett. Business 

correspondent, BBC News. 19 January 2018. Fed up with motorway driving? Now 

you can switch to virtual reality. When you're sitting in the driver's seat at 

60mph on a rain-lashed motorway, covering your eyes would normally be a 

dangerous, if not downright suicidal move. Putting on a virtual reality headset, 

obscuring the view of the road altogether, if not downright suicidal move."
