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 Obama covered ground in Miami, while Vice President Joe 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.

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!”

Magnum Photos photographer Thomas Dworzak spent time in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia for MSNBC Photography on the eve of the U.S. election.

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. Today on MSNBC.com, in partnership with @magnumphotos 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.

This Halloween, as children overran the streets with merry mischief—collecting candy and gallivanting ghoulishly—there was a slightly more sinister air than usual about the start of Allhallowtide: It’s marking one week from the U.S. presidential election. The night provided its standard scares: little ones dressed as ghosts, vampires, witches and warlocks. But perhaps the most frightening costumes among the parties and parades were those masquerading as uncomfortably realistic imitators of presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton —the two most unpopular presidential candidates in American history.

Legendary street photographer Bruce Gilden hit the New York City Halloween parade for MSNBC Photography to capture all of the Trumps and Clintons at their scariest.

This Week in Pictures: We’ve got just over a week left until Election Day, and both Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton have been campaigning hard in battleground states. Meanwhile, the fight to take back Mosul, Iraq, surged forward, with thousands of civilians continuing to flee the conflict in and around the country’s second-largest city. In Calais, France, the migrant camp known as “The Jungle” fell into disarray and riot as French authorities moved to close the camp and relocate its inhabitants across the country.

MSNBC Special Report: The final chapter in our on-going feature, The Geography of Poverty. Matt Black Photography and writer Trymaine Lee bring us “The City: Prison’s Grip on the Black Family”.

Philadelphia is the poorest big city in America and has the nation’s highest incarceration rate. As of last week, more than 7,300 of its citizens were locked up. A whopping 60% of Philadelphia’s jail population is made up of non-violent suspects who are still awaiting trial, and 72% are African American. Mass incarceration has been a disruptive force that has upended many black communities and left generations of black families hobbled. It has taken an especially damaging toll on black men, criminalized throughout history, marginalized by public policy and widely excluded from the American labor market.

A heated, high-tension second presidential debate on Sunday night fulfilled the anticipation that consumed news media and viewers leading into the event, following what some have called the worst weekend for a presidential campaign in U.S. history. A leaked tape, on which Donald Trump is heard boasting about celebrity power and sexual conquests in 2005, set off a firestorm of coverage and Republican withdrawal of support for the nominee’s campaign. During the debate, Trump struggled to get out of answering for his comments while moderators fought to keep control over the nominees’ back and forth. But despite the media frenzy around the campaigns this weekend, early reports show that viewer ratings dropped from those of the first debate. Mark Peterson Pixs of Redux Pictures was there to capture the seen for MSNBC.

This Week in Pictures: Protests continued in the U.S. over the fatal police shootings of three black men. In politics, presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump shared sharp exchanges in the first presidential debate. Overseas, the crisis in Aleppo grew more severe. The week came to a close as the world came together to mourn the loss of former Israeli Prime Minister and President Shimon Peres who passed away at the age of 93. President Obama and former President Clinton were among the 90 delegations from 70 countries to pay their respects.

This Week in History: On September 25, 1981, Sandra Day O’Connor became the first woman Supreme Court Justice, after receiving unanimous Senate approval. But before donning the nation’s highest robe, the pioneering O’Connor blazed other trails for women. She graduated third in her 1952 Stanford Law class, when opportunities for female lawyers were scarce, and worked unpaid in California. In her 24 years as Justice, the moderate conservative Republican was called tough but just, often voted in line with the Republican platform, but broke away in some major historical cases. She provided the deciding vote in Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992), upholding Roe v. Wade, and was the determining judge in Bush v. Gore, ending the recount in the contested presidential race and upholding the election of George W. Bush.
