In the 2018-19 school year two Dual Lan-guage Program will take off: one at PS242 in Manhattan (West Harlem) and the other one at PS132 in Williamsburg.

When 629 migrants were en route by sea to Italy on June 10, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini declared that no Italian port could accept them. "Saving lives is a duty, but turning Italy into Europe's refugee camp, no," he stated. Spain is to take them in, but the EU is splintered on this.
