LOS ANGELES (AP) - Immigrant advocates have filed legal documents to try to force the administration of President Donald Trump to quickly release immigrant children from a Florida detention center. The advocates accuse the administration of violating a decades-old settlement that they say requires that children to be quickly released to relatives or other sponsors or sent to child care facilities. Advocates say hundreds of children are held in prison-like conditions in Homestead, Florida.
CORONA, Calif. (AP) - An off-duty Los Angeles police officer who was injured in a deadly shooting inside a Costco Wholesale store has been treated for minor injuries and released from a hospital.

She was an 18-year-old student at the time.
(AP) - Advocates said the case of a teenage mother and her newborn premature baby highlights the poor conditions immigrants are held in after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
