For 25 years, Marcos Alonso Zea has lived in America, working most recently as a clerk at a home improvement store on New York's Long Island.
The Obama administration, under massive pressure from both sides of the culture war over contraception, has decided to appeal a federal court’s order to make a morning-after pill available to everyone without a prescription, just a day after expanding access to the pills for younger teenage girls.
A 34-year-old New York man who joined al Qaeda, then plotted and attempted to commit suicide terrorist attacks was sentenced Friday in federal court in New York to life in prison for multiple federal terrorism offenses.
"Despite being born and raised in the United States, Zea allegedly betrayed his country and attempted to travel to Yemen to join a terrorist organization and commit murder," U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch said.
U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch announced the decision in a letter on Monday to Judge Edward Korman in New York, who made waves in April by rebuking Mr. Obama's top health official and ordering the Food and Drug Administration to make the emergency contraceptives freely available to girls of any age.
