It was in that restaurant, in 1977, that Delmiro Trevino was in when three sheriff's deputies and a policewoman came in and demanded he show documents proving he was American. The racial profiling of Trevino, an American born in Texas, led to Oregon becoming America's first sanctuary state. Now, Oregonians are deciding in the Nov. 6 election whether to repeal the law, even as some other states, like Vermont, have adopted sanctuary policies and others, like Texas, have banned towns from adopting them.

From the time he vanished into the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul, Riyadh’s allied newspapers and TV stations across the region echoed the Saudi denial of any knowledge of his fate or weaved alternative scenarios of an alleged plot by rivals Qatar and Turkey to destabilize the kingdom.
