GENEVA (AP) — A U.N. human rights expert says migration is "here to stay" despite all efforts to stop it.

He had been deported on five previous occasions.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A Nevada man faces a $250,000 fine and up to three years in prison following his guilty plea to sending more than 27 million spam messages to Facebook users.
