    A North Carolina teen who decapitated his mother and then walked outside carrying her head had murder charges against him dropped. Authorities dismissed the charge on Wednesday saying Oliver Funes-Machada isn't mentally competent to stand trial. "Specifically, could he appreciate the charges against him and participate in his defense," District Attorney Michael D. Waters said in a statement to WRAL. "The mental health professionals there determined he could not at this time." Funes-Machada, 19, was ordered by a judge to be committed to a state psychiatric hospital. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement previously said Funes-Machada, from Honduras, was in the...

    The Trump administration is drafting a new policy to quickly deport more than 150,000 child migrants from Central America who arrived alone in the U.S. illegally, creating a new class of undocumented migrants. The Department of Justice and Homeland Security is drawing up a policy proposal in a series of memos, according to two sources with knowledge of the internal debate who spoke to the Miami Herald. As it stands, the plan would allow for teens and children who arrived in the U.S. illegally by themselves to be put on a fast track to deportation when they turn 18. Most...

    The Trump administration on Wednesday shut down yet another Obama-era program — this one created to give Central American minors fleeing poverty and gang violence in their homeland temporary legal status in the United States. The “CAM parole” program was established in 2014 in response to a surprise spike in the number of unaccompanied minors and families entering the country from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The program allowed minors who did not make the cut for “refugee status” to enter the U.S. on a two-year, renewable parole if they had a parent already legally in the country.

    Catholic Vote ^ | October 5, 2016
    SUMMARY In media appearances since he was named the Vice Presidential running mate of Secretary Clinton, Tim Kaine has continuously referenced his time in Honduras as the decisive period that helped shape both his political and religious views. The facts surrounding this “mission trip,” however, raise grave and serious concerns, particularly given his continued relationships with the successors of a number of political and religious extremists. Catholic voters and leaders are entitled to the truth about this decisive period in Kaine’s life. This memo has been published based on extensive research and reporting in an effort to help all people...

    The New York Times Sept. 4 feature on Tim Kaine1, shows that his year in Honduras introduced him not to Jesus Christ, but to Karl Marx. The story doesn't say that, exactly, but connect the dots with a little history, and an alarming picture emerges of Kaine's adventures with radicals and revolutionaries in 1980s Latin America. The Times notes that in Honduras: “Mr. Kaine embraced an interpretation of the gospel, known as liberation theology...” This wasn't mainstream “Catholic thought” at the time. It was a radical, Marxist-based ideology at odds with the Church, the pope, and the United States, but...

    The Democratic PartyÂ’s nominee for the Vice Presidency, Senator Tim Kaine, spent his youth as a willing dupe for the KGB propaganda machine and its active measures in Latin America during the Cold War. In 1980, at age 22, Kaine interrupted his law studies at Harvard to sign up for a year long stint in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, which was heavily involved in various types of missionary work in Central America. During this time, the merde was indeed hitting the ventilateur south of the US border. Communist backed guerillas were intent on overthrowing the pro US government in El...

    Mexico is struggling to stem the flow of Central American migrants traveling to the United States ahead of the U.S. presidential election, causing major concern in Washington, which is weighing sending more agents to help. In 2014, Mexico moved to strengthen its southern border when a surge in child migrants from Central America sparked a political crisis in the United States. Last year, Mexico detained over 190,000 migrants, more than double the number in 2012. But official data examined by Reuters shows that fewer migrants have been captured in Mexico this year even as the number caught on the U.S....
