The city of New Delhi is choking, and there’s no end—or much else—in sight. Although residents of the Indian capital are used to polluted air, particularly in the cooler months when people light their stoves for heat, this winter it reached a level that even Delhiites could not have prepared for. In November, after six days of heavy smog smothering the city, the Indian government declared an emergency, temporarily closing schools, construction sites and coal-ired power stations.

About Newsweek International

ROUND 'EM UP: TRUMP'S BORDER WAR IS ABOUT TO GET UGLY It was a 2017 moment of great joy, and then fear. Ammi Arevalo found out she was pregnant in early February, not long after President Donald Trump signed two executive orders ramping up enforcement of immigration law and deportations. Her first reaction was happiness, mixed with some low-level financial anxiety, but almost immediately a dark foreboding took over her thoughts. As an undocumented immigrant, Arevalo already dreads an early-morning knock on her door from immigration agents. Arevalo and eleven million like her are at the center of a long running fight that is sparking regular protests and threatening to go nuclear in the early days of the Trump presidency. Leading one side of the war are organizations advocating for undocumented immigrants and even teaching tactics to avoid and sub-vert immigration laws. They want people like Arevalo to live in the U.S. with no real legal distinction between them and American citizens. Leading the other side are the president, many politicians and sheriffs in Texas, and organizations pushing for tighter enforcement and millions of deportations.
