This Week in Pictures: Nov. 5-11

This Week in Pictures: This week, Donald Trump, the real estate tycoon and reality television star turned American president elect, proved his movement over life-long public servant Hillary Clinton was a force to be reckoned with. The country, and viewers around the world, responded with shock and some with sadness, as Americans settled into the election results early Wednesday morning. Protesters also held signs in solidarity with indigenous communities who have been protesting the Dakota Access pipeline at Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Elsewhere, the fighting in Mosul, Iraq, surges on, as in Aleppo, with airstrikes wounding civilians once more this week. In Greece, demonstrations for education reform and funding overtook Athens.

While today officially marks Election Day, many Americans have already cast their vote, taking advantage of early voting in historic numbers. As of November 8, 46,314,207 early votes have been cast in the 2016 presidential election, setting a record for early voting. The NBC News Data Analytics Lab uses voter data from TargetSmart to analyze early vote totals. There are likely millions of early votes still to be tabulated, so this number could grow over the next few days. By comparison, the Associated Press tabulated that 46.2 million early votes were cast in the 2012 election.

Clinton's campaign enters the final stretch

The Founding Fathers likely could not have imagined the scene Monday night outside Independence Hall, the building where they signed the Declaration of Independence and debated the Constitution more than two centuries ago. A black man, standing behind the seal of the President of the United States, passed the torch of the world's longest lasting democracy to a woman on the eve of an election that polls say she is favored to win. Along with rock heroes Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi as warm-up acts, and former President Bill Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama looking on, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama rallied the largest crowd of her campaign — 33,000 strong — to mark the end of one presidency and the beginning, they hope, of another.

Hillary Clinton capped off 18 months of campaigning with a star-studded midnight rally in this crucial battleground state. "This election will end but our work together will be just beginning," she said to a deafening crowd at North Carolina State University. "We have to bridge the divides in this country." Pop star Lady Gaga and New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi performed before Clinton took the stage. Afterward, President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton spoke briefly to introduce the Democratic nominee at her final campaign rally in Raleigh, N.C., Nov. 8, 2016.

What Trump doesn't tell you about sanctuary cities

In the spirit of America’s founding principles as a nation of immigrants, sanctuary cities act as a protective shield, standing in the way of federal efforts to pinpoint and deport people at random. Republican hopeful, Donald Trump propped up his bid for the presidency on a message that foreigners were at the root of America’s ills. Regardless of whether he could actually follow through on his plan to build a “big, beautiful wall” along the U.S.-Mexico border. His early plan to also ban all Muslims from traveling to the United States was in a similar vein. He has taken a comparable approach to sanctuary cities, vilifying and pledging to end them. But the violent crime Trump attributes to those laws isn’t confined to immigrants any more than it is sanctuary cities. What's more, the nominee, who touts himself as the "law and order candidate," overlooks the fact that many police departments have advocated for sanctuary laws.

MSNBC SPECIAL REPORT: More than a quarter of the Philadelphia’s population, 26.3 percent, or about 407,500, are living below the poverty level. For the city’s children, the poverty rate is even higher at 36 percent. The city also has the highest deep poverty rate in America at 12.2 percent, twice the national rate of deep of 6.3 percent, according to 2013 census data. In that void of resources, safety and stability, many struggle beneath the weight of failed systems on almost every level, including by the crush of law enforcement and the criminal justice system.

The impact of this contact with the criminal justice system has hit a relatively small number of neighborhoods particularly hard. In Philadelphia, much like in other cities, many of the poorest neighborhoods experience the highest incarceration rates and, in turn, are the costliest. “I believe that this system was not created to benefit or to ensure the well-being of non-white people or poor people in this country,” Hiram Rivera, a community organizer in Philadelphia says.

Income inequality and race have been key issues of the U.S. presidential election of 2016.

Hillary Clinton hit the stage at the Mann Center in Philadelphia on Saturday, where she rallied alongside Madeline Albright and Katy Perry. The Democratic nominee urged supporters to go out and vote on Nov. 8, and to encourage their friends and family to do the same. Clinton, who is campaigning to set a national standard for early voting, stressed the importance of taking on your civic duty as soon as you can. Because early voting is integral to the inclusion of Americans with family and work obligations, the former secretary of state has said she will set a national standard that will allow for voting to take place in the evenings and on weekends for at least 20 days prior to election day.

Here, a supporter in Philadelphia, Penn., is emotional as Clinton speaks at a rally on Nov. 5, 2016.

With less than 72 hours before Election Day, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in its final sprint and closing in on what could be a long awaited, hard-fought, historic night for America—and it's women. In a four-day blitz on swing states, the Democratic nominee has appeared alongside Pharrell Williams, Sen. Bernie Sanders, JAY Z and Beyoncé, as a fierce, equally star-studded army of surrogates, including the president, vice president and first lady, rally on her behalf. It is a tight race, no doubt, but with scientists’ predictions of a 99% chance for a Clinton win, it’s possible the nation may be on the brink of breaking a monumental, long-standing glass ceiling.

Here, a supporter in Greenville, N.C., holds up a sign reading “It’s her time” at a rally for Clinton, Nov. 3, 2016.

The 2016 presidential contest has been characterized by unpopular candidates, dissatisfied voters and unprecedented controversies. Whether meant in seriousness or in jest, it is not uncommon to hear some Americans quip about moving to a different country to escape the contender they consider to be the greater of two evils. For those who are looking to make a great escape, our neighbors to the north say, “you’re welcome!”

Cape Breton, a distant portion of the Canadian maritime province of Nova Scotia, is not a new destination for the world’s migrants. The region has seen numerous waves of immigration—with relics and artifacts suggesting Nordic travelers may have come in contact with the land, or Chinese settlers as early as the fourteenth century, according to experts who spoke with Magnum photographer Thomas Dworzak. But today, Cape Breton is being depopulated. Like the problem in larger Nova Scotia, young people are moving away, businesses are closing and houses are being shuttered. Currently, the foreign-born population is directly linked to universities, and some who are concerned about what a Donald Trump presidency would look like. But what began as a joke, Dworzak said, quickly became an industry driver. In fact, Google Data Editor Simon Rogers tweeted on March 1 that the question, “how can I move to Canada?” surged in searches by 350 percent as Super Tuesday results, showing Trump scoring seven primary wins, were reported.

Here, a man is pictured at Legion, a club for veterans, a mural of the World War I Battle of Vimy Ridge is seen in the background, Cape Breton Island.

Clinton's campaign enters the final stretch

This week was the final stretch before Tuesday’s presidential election, and the Clinton campaign has been rushing from swing state to swing state in the hopes of swaying any final undecided voters. Hillary Clinton herself was in Florida, Arizona, Nevada and North Carolina this week, as her surrogates rushed elsewhere – President Barack Obama covered ground in Miami, while Vice President Vice President Biden headed to Tampa. Clinton’s opponent, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, spent his final week in the same pursuit, with his son Donald Trump Jr. speaking on his behalf in Arizona, and his wife Melania touching on the issue of online bullying in suburban Philadelphia.

This Week in Pictures: This week the United States rounded the corner into the final election push, and Republican and Democratic nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton focused their attention on major swing states. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years, beating the Cleveland Indians in extra innings with a score of 8-7. In India, Diwali celebrations illuminated the skies, alongside clashes between Kashmiri protesters and government forces in Indian controlled Kashmir.

No Safe Place: Cities trying to balance American ideals with a...

SPECIAL REPORT: Faith communities started what became known as the “Sanctuary Movement” in the early 1980s. It was a symbolic extension of the medieval practice of churches providing shelter to all, regardless of their crimes. But for a handful of faith leaders in the southwestern U.S., the immigrants that they provided sanctuary to weren’t outlaws. They were refugees. Central America was racked by nonstop violence and civil war, and death squads forced waves of people to flee north from Guatemala and El Salvador. Appalled to see the U.S. government turn away those migrants once they reached the border rather than take them in, church leaders decided to intervene.

Today, undocumented immigrants define “sanctuary city” as a shield from deportation. Police chiefs and sheriffs define it as a band-aid to the larger problem of illegal immigration. And for some grieving Americans, sanctuary cities represent injustice and loss.

For the complete special report go to www.msnbc.com/specials/migrant-crisis/sanctuary-cities

Today on MSNBC.com, in partnership with Magnum Photos we launch our latest and final chapter in this 11-part special report on the migrant and refugee crisis around the world. In “No Safe Place” writer Amanda Sakuma and photographer Jérôme Sessini take us into American cities trying to balance ideals with a broken federal immigration system that have found themselves in Donald Trump’s political crosshairs.
