Mexico protesters fear US will drain them dry

Carmelo Gallegos used to sow wheat in the cool winters and cotton in scorching-hot summers of the Mexicali valley. These days, water is so scarce he can only plant one crop a year.

But on top of drought and a sinking water table, the 61-year old farmer now has another preoccupation. A huge brewery is being built in the nearby city of Mexicali, and Gallegos – like many others – fears it will suck up what little water remains to make beer for export to the US.

Appeals court CFPB ruling a big win for consumers

Appeals court CFPB ruling a big win for consumers

In 2016, a panel of three judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was unconstitutional.

The CFPB has a single executive (unlike some agencies, which are headed by a multi-person commission), and the CFPB’s head can only be removed by the president for a good cause, not just any political reason. The panel found that this was an infringement upon the president’s proper constitutional powers.
