Grubhub will launch meal-delivery service in some local communities.


The meal-delivery service Grubhub − which announced a month ago it was expanding its meal-delivery service in several Dayton-area communities − is offering free delivery for those who type in the proper code when placing their order.

Grubhub officials said in a release that hungry customers in certain local communities can  use the code DAYTONFREE for free delivery on all orders effective immediately and running through April 26.

Although some local restaurants already appear on Grubhub’s web site, those eateries offer their own delivery. What’s new about this Grubhub expansion is that Grubhub will be using its own drivers’ network, according to Jillian D’Amico, Grubhub’s territory manager and restaurant sales executive for the Dayton area. Grubhub has been soliciting local restaurants to join with Grubhub for delivery, and is scheduled to launch their service on March 12, D’Amico said.

“Our driving network has been established and is ready to rock and roll, so we’re now able to offer our Grubhub delivery services to any restaurant in Dayton that offers takeout,” D’Amico said. “Each driver is thoroughly screened, put through an interview process, and equipped with proper Grubhub hot/cold insulated to-go bags.”

The Dayton expansion will include the Centerville, Miamisburg, West Carrollton, Kettering, Beavercreek, Fairborn, Huber Heights, and Englewood areas, D’Amico said.

Dayton-area diners have multiple options when it comes to meal delivery. Among them are DoorDash and UberEats, both of which launched in some Miami Valley communities last fall. But Dayton is still prime territory for Grubhub expansion, D’Amico said.

“We chose Dayton because we felt it was a city with enourmous opportunity,” she said. “Cities that do best on Grubhub are those that include a busy downtown district, booming college towns, and a thriving or up-and-coming restaurant scene. I can personally attest to Dayton having all three of these, as my cousin used to be the assistant men’s basketball coach for Wright State University, so I’ve seen the town in action.”

Grubhub has gotten a positive response from local restaurants, D’Amico said, and is “far exceeding our goal” for sign-ups. “There is no cost to get started with Grubhub, no monthly fees, no equipment fees, and no commitment. We function on a strictly commission-based model,” she said.

Immigration: Trump administration defends 'zero tolerance' policy (live updates)

White House officials pushed back Monday against critics of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. The policy has led to the separation of children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

>> Read more trending news

Update 3:10 p.m. EDT June 18: Sen. Kamala Harris, D-California, called Monday for the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen amid the ongoing debate over the Trump administration’s immigration policy.

The demand came one day after Nielsen said in a tweet that, “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.”

Nielsen echoed President Donald Trump’s claims that a law is behind the recent spike in separations of migrant children and their parents at the border.

“We will not apologize for enforcing the laws passed by Congress,” Nielsen said. “We are a nation of laws. We are asking Congress to change the laws.”

However, as Harris and numerous fact checkers have noted, there is no law that mandates the separation of children and parents at the border.

Harris said in a statement Monday that Nielsen’s “misleading statements ... are disqualifying.”

“We must speak the truth,” Harris said. “There is no law that says the Administration has to rip children from their families. This Administration can and must reverse course now and it can and must find new leadership for the Department of Homeland Security.”

Update 2:30 p.m. June 18: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday that President Donald Trump is telling an “outright lie” when he claims that Democrats are behind the recent surge in separations of children from their parents on the border.

“This is not happening because of the 'Democrats' law,' as the White House has claimed,” Clinton said. “Separating families is not mandated by law at all.”

Clinton, who ran as a Democrat against Trump during the 2016 presidential election, also appeared to chastise U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who cited a Bible verse last week while justifying the Trump administration’s immigration policy.

“Those who selectively use the Bible to justify this cruelty are ignoring a central tenant of Christianity,” Clinton said. “Jesus said, ‘Suffer the little children unto me.’ He did not say, ‘Let the children suffer.’”

Update 2 p.m. EDT June 18: Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush urged President Donald Trump to end the policy that’s allowed authorities to separate migrant children from their parents on the border, writing Monday on Twitter that "children shouldn't be used as a negotiating tool.”

“(Trump) should end this heartless policy and Congress should get an immigration deal done that provides for asylum reform, border security and a path to citizenship for Dreamers,” he wrote.

The president has repeatedly called for Democrats to negotiate with Republicans to address illegal immigration after falsely claiming that the party is behind laws that mandate the separation of child from parent at the border. No such law exists. 

Jeb Bush, brother of former President George W. Bush and son of former President George H.W. Bush, ran against Trump in 2016 for the Republican presidential nomination.

In an op-ed published Sunday by the Washington Post, former first lady Laura Bush called the Trump administration policy “cruel.”

"I live in a border state," Bush wrote. "I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart."

First lady Melania Trump has also criticized the policy, telling CNN in a statement through her spokeswoman that “She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart.”

Update 12:46 p.m. EDT June 18: President Donald Trump again accused Democrats of obstructing efforts to deal with illegal immigration and the separation of children and parents at the border, telling reporters Monday that “we’re stuck with these horrible laws” because Democrats refuse to sit down with Republicans.

There are no laws mandating the separation of children and parents at the border.

“We have the worst immigration laws in the entire world,” Trump said. “Nobody has such sad, such bad – and in many cases, such horrible and tough – you see about child separation. You see what’s going on there.”

 

“The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility,” Trump said.

 

Update 12 p.m. EDT June 18: U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday said authorities don’t want to separate children from their families but that officials have a duty to prosecute people who illegally cross the border.

“When we ignore our laws at the border we obviously encourage hundreds of thousands of people a year to likewise ignore our laws and illegally enter our country, creating an enormous burden on our law enforcement, our schools, our hospitals and (our) social programs,” Sessions said Monday during the National Sheriffs’ Association Annual Conference in New Orleans.

 

He framed the issue as a debate over “whether we want to be a country of laws or whether we want to be a country without borders.”

“President Trump has said this cannot continue,” Sessions said. “We do not want to separate parents from their children. If we build the wall, if we pass legislation to end the lawlessness, we won’t face these terrible choices. We will have a system where those who need to apply for asylum can do so and those who want to come to this country will apply legally.”

Sessions’ arguments echoed those of President Donald Trump, who has blamed Democrats for passing laws that he said led to the separations.

There are no laws mandating the separation of children and parents at the border.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said earlier Monday that officials will not apologize for enforcing immigration laws.

"We have to do our job," she said.

 

Original report: President Donald Trump defended his administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy on Monday, writing in a series of tweets that children are being used “by the worst criminals on earth” to get into America as critics slammed the policy for separating children from their parents.

“Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country,” Trump wrote. “Has anyone been looking at the Crime taking place south of the border. It is historic, with some countries the most dangerous places in the world. Not going to happen in the U.S.”

 

The president pointed to a rise in crime in Germany as an example of the chaos caused by illegal immigration, writing in a tweet that it was a “big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture.”

   

However, Germany’s internal ministry reported last month that criminal offenses in the country were at their lowest since 1992, according to Reuters.

This spring, the Trump administration ordered prosecutors to charge every person illegally crossing the border. Children traveling with the adults have been separated and placed in detention centers, prompting protests nationwide.

The president has blamed Democrats for not fixing the law that allows for the separations.

“Tell them to start thinking about the people devastated by Crime coming from illegal immigration,” the president wrote. “Change the laws!”

     

Despite his claim that Democrats are at fault for the situation, The Associated Press reported that the Trump administration “put the policy in place and could easily end it.”

A Bexar County Sheriff's Department deputy was arrested on a felony charge of super aggravated sexual assault Sunday after a 4-year-old girl’s mother was blackmailed to stay silent about the abuse, according to police. The victim’s mother is an undocumented immigrant and was threatened with deportation if she spoke out.

KENS reported that department officials arrested detention Deputy Jose Nunez, 47, after the victim told her mother about the abuse Saturday night in San Antonio, Texas.

Sheriff Javier Salazar said at a news conference Sunday that the mother went to a local fire station and Nunez was arrested. 

"The details of the case are quite frankly heartbreaking, disturbing, disgusting and infuriating all at the same time," Salazar said, adding that Nunez had physical contact with the victim and there was "at least some indication of minor injury."

"We have reason to believe that this goes back at least several months, possibly a couple of  several years," Salazar said.

Nunez, a 10-year veteran of the department, is on administrative leave pending an investigation.

A former assistant professor at a Michigan college who won seven episodes of “Jeopardy!” in 2012 pleaded guilty to sneaking into the email accounts of other professors, students and administrators, The Daily Telegram reported.

Stephanie Jass, 48, who taught history at Adrian College, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a charge of unauthorized computer access. She faces up to five years in prison and is expected to be sentenced July 20, the newspaper reported.

At the time she was a contestant on “Jeopardy!,” Jass’ seven victories were tied for the best winning streak on the popular game show. That record has since been broken, the Telegram reported.

Police said that during a four-day period in the spring of 2017, Jass logged into other people’s email accounts without permission after the college reset passwords and gave teachers, students and administrators the same temporary passwords, the Telegram reported. Another professor discovered that Jass was accessing other accounts and reported it to school officials, the newspaper reported.

Jass admitted accessing the emails of school administrators, faculty members, students and even her stepson to school officials in May 2017, The Jackson Citizen Patriot reported.

Jass was "terminated with cause" in January, the Citizen Patriot reported.
