An Arizona college student who is living in the country without immigration documentation is receiving backlash after posting a picture of her tax return on Facebook.
The Arizona Republic reports 23-year-old Belen Sisa is shielded from possible deportation by former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Sisa said in her post that she filed state and federal taxes and paid $300 to Arizona.
More than half of Southern California's beaches could completely erode back to coastal infrastructure or sea cliffs by the year 2100 as the sea level rises, according to a study released Monday.
Using a new computer model to predict shoreline effects caused by the rise of sea levels and changes in storm patterns from climate change, the research found that with limited human intervention, 31 percent to 67 percent of the beaches could vanish over the next eight decades with sea-level rises of 3.3 feet (1 meter) to 6.5 feet (2 meters).
Human efforts will likely need to increase to preserve the beaches, study lead author Sean Vitousek said in a statement.

The wife of Khalid Masood, the terrorist who attacked Britain's parliament, said she is "saddened and shocked by what Khalid has done," NBC News reported.
In a statement given to London's Metropolitan Police, Rohey Hydara condemned her husband's actions and expressed her "condolences to the victims that have died." She also wished a "speedy recovery to all the injured."
"I would like to request privacy for our family, especially the children, at this difficult time," the statement said.
Masood killed four people in his attack on Parliament and the Westminster Bridge, including a police officer and three civilians, before being shot dead. Though ISIS claimed responsibility for the rampage, there is no evidence Masood acted in the name of the terror group.

Rachel Dolezal, the former head of an NAACP chapter who for years passed herself off as black, is giving some context about how her upbringing shaped her search for identity in her new memoir.
Now identifying as trans-black, Dolezal sat down with NBCBLK to discuss how her identity challenges white supremacy and why she just couldn't be a white ally.
"I said I tried the 'ally path' in my earlier young adulthood," Dolezal said. "I did a lot of work but it wasn't as much in harmony with me being seen and understood for who I am, and that just kind of all synchronizing, in my life."
She also wishes she had introduced herself and her identity, rather than have it come out when a reporter asked her, "Are you African American," and she was unable to answer.

Three people died and seven people were rescued Monday after a massive blaze ignited inside an Oakland apartment building, which documents show was in violation of multiple fire codes and other rules.
Three people suffered injuries as a result of smoke inhalation, fire officials said, adding that one person is still unaccounted for.
The Alameda County Coroner's Office identified one of the victims as 64-year-old Edwarn Anderson of Oakland.
Several people were detained Tuesday in connection to an "ambush-style attack" on two undercover police officers conducting surveillance outside an apartment complex in northwest Miami-Dade, officials said.
The shooting happened just before 10 p.m. near Northwest 62nd Street and 20th Avenue.
Miami-Dade police said the two officers were investigating gang activity in the area as part of a multi-agency task force. The detectives were in an unmarked police vehicle when, according to officials, several suspects "ambushed" the car and opened fire. The officers returned fire, Miami-Dade Police Maj. Hector Llevat said.

Congressional Republicans on Monday pointed fingers and assigned blame after their epic failure on health care and a weekend digesting the outcome.
The divisions, coming on top of House Republicans' inability to deliver on a priority they all share — repealing and replacing "Obamacare" — raised serious questions about whether they will be able to achieve their other legislative goals for the year or even pass must-do spending legislation in time to avert a government shutdown at midnight April 28.
The state of Michigan will pay $87 million to replace water lines to thousands of homes in lead-contaminated Flint under a settlement agreement submitted Monday, NBC News reported.

If Judge David Lawson OKs the deal, the Flint and Michigan governments would be obligated to dig up, inspect and replace lead or galvanized-steel water lines leading to at least 18,000 homes by Jan. 1, 2020.
