'Baby Doc' Duvalier Taken into Custody in Haiti On Sunday, Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier stunned Haiti by returning from 25 years of luxurious exile in France. Today, police took him from his hotel in Port-au-Prince and government officials say he'll be questioned about past charges of stealing from the treasury. Jacqueline Charles is there for the Miami Herald .
The First Anniversary of the Haiti Earthquake One year ago today Haiti lost some 300,000 people to an earthquake that registered 7.0. Ten million survivors declared today a national holiday. But despite billions in promised international aid and plans to "build it back better," so much rubble has yet to be cleared that recovery hasn't even begun. Jacqueline Charles is in Port-au-Prince for the Miami Herald .
Haiti, Still Reeling, Prepares for Elections Even if the Island nation of Haiti had not suffered a devastating earthquake, electing a new president was not going to be easy. Ready or not, the election will be held on Sunday. Jacqueline Charles is Caribbean correspondent and Haiti Bureau Chief for the Miami Herald .
The airline electronics ban and what it means President Trump's Department of Homeland Security has banned all electronic devices larger than cell phones on some foreign airlines flying direct to the US. It's causing confusion as well as inconvenience. Is the motive really just increased security?
'Do-or-die' time on healthcare bill President Trump has demanded a House vote today on replacing Obamacare…whatever the details might be. Despite his campaign promise that nobody would lose health insurance, that's possible for 24 million people if he were finally to sign this bill into law.
Political appointments and the reshaping of the judiciary President Trump has the chance for a long-term impact -- not just on the US Supreme Court, but on the entire federal court system. And his nominees are likely to get the support of a massive spending campaign by donors who don't have to reveal their names. Can President Trump "pack" the federal court system?
The 'deconstruction' of the administrative state President Trump has failed to fill high-level positions in important agencies — and some people he has named want to phase out the agencies they're supposed to lead. We look at the possible consequences for delivering services and providing security — and at top aide Steve Bannon's plans for "deconstructing the administrative state."
