There are now more than 3.8 million undergraduate students who are raising children, representing 22 percent of all students attending colleges across the United States.

About half of women who do not have children finish their college programs within the same time frame. NewsHour Weekend's Christopher Booker reports.

As Britain continues to consider withdrawing from the European Union after several rounds of failed votes in recent months, the country will participate in European Parliament elections scheduled for late May, with Britain's new Brexit Party forecast to win a majority of the U.K.'s seats. The election comes as right-wing populism sweeps across portions of Europe, a scenario that could have broad political implications for the E.U.'s elected leadership and its 28 member states. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Malcolm Brabant reports.

Thousands of people from the South American country are fleeing to the U.S. and seeking asylum. Thousands of Venezuelan immigrants have been coming to the U.S. during the last few years, fleeing their country's political and economic crises. Many have settled in and around the city of Houston, Texas, which was already home to a large Venezuelan-American community. NewsHour Weekend's Ivette Feliciano met some of the new arrivals from Venezuela to learn about what they went through to get here and the challenges they face in a new country where their legal status remains uncertain.

The threat of a U.S. troop withdrawal endangers Kurdish control of a semi-autonomous region of Syria. A historic military partnership between the U.S. and the local Kurdish militia in northeastern Syria helped lead to the end of five years of brutal rule by the Islamic State. After the Syrian revolution began in 2011, the Kurds formed their own semi-autonomous area in Syria called Rojava. Their alliance with the U.S. has kept Syrian and Turkish government forces out of the region and strengthened the Kurds' territorial gains.
