Anti-Trump protesters rally for Muslim and immigrant rights 

President Donald Trump on Wednesday ordered construction of a U.S.-Mexican border wall and punishment for cities shielding illegal immigrants while mulling restoring a CIA secret detention program as he launched broad but divisive plans to reshape U.S. immigration and national security policy.

A draft executive order seen by Reuters that Trump is expected to sign in the coming days would block the entry of refugees from war-torn Syria and suspend the entry of any immigrants from Muslim-majority Middle Eastern and African countries Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Iraq, Iran, Libya and Yemen while permanent rules are studied.

Less than a week into his presidency, Trump has moved aggressively to put his stamp on a range of policies, including steps to gut the healthcare system devised by his predecessor, and make clear that as president he is not turning toward more moderate positions than he took as a candidate.

His directives on Wednesday signaled a tough action toward the roughly 11 million illegal immigrants already in the United States, most from Latin America, whom he already has threatened to deport. (Reuters)

As the NWSL season slowly winds down and we head into the playoffs…shoutout to non-national team players who don’t make as much as they deserve and still play. The ones who still work hard and sell tickets while NT players have their duties - whether it’s the WC, Olympics and the qualifying stages. FYI they’re just as important - if not more important to selling the league to the general public. They sacrifice a lot push women’s football in the United States. Especially financially. They don’t bring home as much and many could make more using the degree they earned while in college. Or they’re forced to retire in their twenties to make ends meet. Just listen to Ella Masar’s 2 Drunk Fans interview to understand what I’m saying.

I see a lot of people on social media who only praise and glorify NT players. That’s totally fine! But just remember who sacrifices the most so that young girls in 2015 might have something to play for if they’re good enough to go pro one day. If the NWSL succeeds 10-15 years from now and you ask me who helped shape it I’ll name players like Ella Masar first.
