A more than 3-year-old voter registration fraud inquiry by the office of candidate for governor, and Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp shifted course Wednesday. Investigators revealed publicly for the first time that their original target, an organization focused on registering voters of color and young people, was effectively cleared in the case.

When former President Barack Obama signed an executive order creating DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — in 2012, I was a sophomore at Cross Keys High School, a DeKalb County high school located in a majority immigrant community.

Conversation about immigration and the threat of deportation was constantly present. I always heard stories of people who had been deported from neighbors and members of the community.

Georgia Tech says one of the three people arrested during a protest following a vigil for a student killed by campus police is a student at the university and the other two are not.

An officer fatally shot 21-year-old Scout Schultz late Saturday. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has said Schultz called 911 to report an armed suspicious person.

The school identified those arrested Monday night as Vincent Castillenti, Jacob Wilson and Cassandra Monden. Fulton County jail records identify the third person arrested as Andrew Xavier Monden.
