ACLU Files Lawsuit in Philadelphia; Bucks Woman Dies in Fire; Man Hit/Killed By Car in Northeast
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

Local family members of three families that were denied entry to the United States at Philadelphia International Airport on Saturday are filing lawsuits against the Trump administration. They appeared at City Hall today along with Mayor Jim Kenney and the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania. Two of the families were from Syria and one individual was from Iran. They were briefly detained at the airport and sent back home. One lawsuit has already been filed and two are pending. These families were just a few of many either turned away or detained at airports across the country over the weekend following President Trump's executive action that placed a 90-day travel ban from seven "countries of concern" located in Africa and the Middle East. Thousands of demonstrators have descended upon airports since Saturday in protest of the immigration order and the detention of travelers from banned countries.

An elderly woman has died after firefighters rescued her from her burning home in Bucks County this morning. Fire broke out around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday in the home on the 2200 block of Byberry Road. Fire and EMS personnel responded quickly. Fighting the fire and rescue efforts were complicated by all of the hoarding items in the residents' home. 92-year-old Julia Pachucki was rescued from a first floor bedroom. She was taken to Temple University Hospital where she later died. Her 60-year-old son escaped the blaze on his own and was also taken to the hospital in critical condition. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

A man was struck and killed by a car in Northeast Philadelphia this morning. The 50-year-old man ran out into the street near the intersection of Cottman and Algon avenues 11:30 a.m. He was rushed to Aria-Torresdale Hospital where he died about an hour later. The driver remained at the scene. The vehicle sustained heavy damage to the hood and windshield. Police are investigating.

UPDATE: The man driving the car that hit the man was a police officer. No charges have been filed. There is no additional information on the driver at this time.

This afternoon, Mix of sun and clouds, chance of shower or wet snow. Temperatures in upper 30's in Center City
