Tuesday will be a special moment for Angel and other players.”Emery named an unfamiliar XI during the win over Troyes, with Neymar joined by Kylian Mbappe in the treatment room, while Marco Verratti and Edinson Cavani were among those rested.The coach gave a full update on numerous players after Saturday’s win and is expecting to have everyone other than Neymar ready.”They continued the work,” Emery said of the absentees. “Marquinhos is fine, he will be able to train with the group on Sunday.”Marco Verratti had a little pain. He wouldn’t have been 100 per cent for Tuesday if he had played in Troyes, that’s why we rested him.”Kylian Mbappe, we thought he could play, but the doctor decided he was better off resting. On Sunday he may be with us and I hope he will be ready.”Cavani ended up with a knock against Marseille.

Gov Abbott Texas Will Halt Aid To Refugees Resettling In The State

first_imgListen Courtesy of his website.Texas Governor Greg AbbottGov. Greg Abbott is threatening to pull Texas out of a federal program to help resettle refugees, citing security concerns.Abbott said the state will withdraw from the federally funded Refugee Resettlement Program by September 30, unless the Obama Administration “unconditionally” approves Texas’ demands for stricter screening of refugees. That would make Texas the third state to pull out of the program, after Kansas and New Jersey.“Texas has accomplished providing both security and refuge for decades,” says Chris Kelley, a spokesman for the non-profit Refugee Services of Texas. “Refugees remain the most scrutinized group of people who come to the U.S. They undergo 20 layers, two-plus years of security checks. And to suggest that there’s a problem with security, it’s just not the case, and it’s irresponsible.”The move would not prevent refugees from coming to Texas. But it would force non-governmental organizations to take up much of the burden of providing services such as healthcare and English-language education to refugees.Martin Cominsky, president and CEO of Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston, says refugee resettlement already makes up about a third of his organization’s workload.“It’s a $6 million project for us, and so funding difficulties will be a challenge when you’re spending a half-million dollars a month to help bring people and resettle them as productive citizens in Houston,” Cominsky says.Texas sued the Obama Administration to halt the resettlement of all Syrian refugees in the state, following last November’s terrorist attacks in Paris. A federal judge threw out the suit in June.Note: News 88.7 reached out to Abbott’s office for comment for this story. We had not received a response by airtime.
