“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

Apple said on Wednesday that Antonio García Martínez, a former Facebook Inc product manager who joined its advertising business in April, was no longer with the company. The iPhone maker made the move after more than 2,000 Apple employees signed an internal petition objecting to what they denounced as sexist and racist views in his 2016 book “Chaos Monkeys” about working in Silicon Valley. I was fired by Apple in a snap decision,” García Martínez said on Twitter. “Apple has issued a statement that clearly implies there was some negative behavior by me during my time at Apple. That is defamatory and categorically false.”Apple did not immediately return a request for comment on García Martínez’s posts.

This is great news, community leaders and Latino legislators say, but access to vaccinations continues to be a hurdle. The Congressional Tri-Caucus is comprised of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, the Congressional Black Caucus and the Asian Pacific American Caucus. “The Hispanic community continues to bear the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic with high rates of infections, hospitalizations and deaths,” said Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair Rep. Raúl Ruiz, D-Calif., a doctor. The program is also forming partnerships with Latino physicians and health care professionals, who are trusted sources of information in communities. The health care system, she said, didn't have the capacity to care for those who ended up in an emergency room who were not a priority during the pandemic.

Transgender advocates in New York are celebrating after the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office announced it will no longer prosecute sex workers. Of the trans sex workers surveyed, almost 70 percent reported losing out on a promotion, being fired or facing other negative workplace outcomes as a result of their gender identity. Manhattan joins Baltimore, Philadelphia, San Francisco and other jurisdictions that decline to prosecute sex workers. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, trans activist and filmmaker Kristen Lovell was a sex worker in New York City’s Meatpacking District. But she also wants more funding to enable trans women to leave the industry.

MEXICO CITY, April 7 (Reuters) - Mexican used-car platform Kavak has reached a $4 billion valuation after raising $485 million in new funding, it told Reuters this week, making the fast-expanding company one of the most highly valued startups in Latin America. Kavak, which was founded in 2016 and is backed by Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp, became Mexico’s first tech “unicorn” last October when it reported a valuation of more than $1 billion. “We definitely foresee Brazil as the biggest market for Kavak,” Garcia said in an interview on Monday. Kavak last May launched financing arm Kavak Capital, and Garcia said 60% of customers now used that in-house option, which offers interest rates from 14% to 20%, compared with traditional options that he said offer rates as high as 60%. Yet the speedy expansion has also brought its challenges, with some users complaining on social media of poor customer service.

Police find 12 bodies dumped on road in Mexico's Veracruz state

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Twelve people believed to be members of a self-defense group were killed in the western Gulf Coast state of Veracruz and their bodies dumped on a dirt road, local authorities said on Monday. The area is about 363 kilometers (225.5 miles) south of the port city of Veracruz, the state capital. Cuitlahuac Garcia, the Governor of Veracruz, said initial reports indicate a split in one such self-defense group led to the violence. Authorities often accuse self-defense groups of being criminal organizations, or having deep ties with certain cartels. In the first 11 months of last year, Veracruz was the eighth most violent state in Mexico, with 1,320 homicides recorded, according to federal authorities.

Some workers in industries facing a slow rebound may need help retraining for other roles in greater demand, said Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin. Workers in the leisure and hospitality industry are more likely to be women, Hispanic and in low-paying jobs. Women hold slightly more than half of the jobs in leisure and hospitality, but are only 47% of the overall workforce, according to Labor Department data. The majority of workers in the industry, 65%, are in the bottom two income quartiles, according to a report from the University of Pennsylvania. “They are not yet in the reallocation model for the jobs that are hiring.”The December jobs losses do not bode well for the Garcias’ employment prospects.

“Shots were fired inside the Capitol—this is a seditious, treacherous act to delegitimize votes," Sanchez said. Loyal Latino Trump supporters tried to shift the blame for the violent protests, claiming on social media that communists, Antifa members and pedophiles were among the protesters. In Miami, where Trump’s performance helped him win the state, supporters led a long caravan through the streets to protest Congress’ count of the Nov. 3 votes. Republican strategist Bertica Cabrera Morris said she’s 100 percent against violence, but “I don’t believe everyone there was a Trump supporter. “Democracy is at stake and we won’t let it die on our watch.”Follow NBC Latino on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Workers weigh goods in an open-air fruit and vegetable market in Caracas, Venezuela December 22, 2020. Maria Briceno, a cigarette street vendor in Maracaibo, the second-largest city in Venezuela, sells any $1 and $5 dollar bills she earns to other businesses. “I collect the $1 dollar bills and go to the market, and for $17 of $1 notes, they give me a $20 dollar bill,” Briceno said. Vendors sometimes lose customers if there is no change, while others allow most of a purchase to be paid in dollars, with the remainder in bolivars. “I try to save my dollars,” said Isabela, a woman in Caracas who declined to give her last name.

When Harris leaves the Senate, the chamber will be without a Black woman. Some advocates are urging the governor to select another Black woman to fill her seat to ensure the Senate isn’t without. “I think Robert Garcia would be amazing,” said former California state Sen.
