FILE - In this March 30, 2006 file photo, former president of the Catalonian autonomous government and member of the Convergence and Union Party (CiU), Jordi Pujol, left, shakes hands with Artur Mas, leader of CiU in Madrid, Spain. The former longtime leader of Spain’s wealthy Catalonia region has given up his title as honorary regional president along with lifetime government perks after admitting he concealed money abroad for three decades. The 84-year-old Jordi Pujol founded Catalonia’s Convergence and Union political alliance that governs the region and was the region’s president from 1980 to 2003. Pujol apologized last Friday after revealing he did not declare an unspecified amount of money to tax authorities for more than 30 years. The announcement came a day before Mas meets with Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to discuss Catalonia’s attempt to hold a secession referendum that Rajoy says would be illegal.

FILE - In this June 18, 2014, file photo, detainees sleep in a holding cell at a U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing facility in Brownsville,Texas. For nearly two months, images of immigrant children who have crossed the border without a parent, only to wind up in concrete holding cells once in United States, have tugged at heartstrings. Yet most Americans now say U.S. law should be changed so they can be sent home quickly, without a deportation hearing. A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds two-thirds of Americans now say illegal immigration is a serious problem for the country, up 14 points since May and on par with concern about the issue in May 2010, when Arizona's passage of a strict anti-immigration measure brought the issue to national prominence.
