It was a tragic day in our nation’s history.”

    It was Read Across America week, and the second graders in the Hinds County School District in Mississippi were waiting for an administrator to read to them. The administrator had forgotten it was her turn, said Toby Price, the assistant principal at Gary Road Elementary School in Hinds County, who was in his office at the time. He decided to fill in. Mr. Price, 46, quickly grabbed a book — “I Need a New Butt!” by Dawn McMillan, one of his children’s favorites — and began reading it to the roughly 240 second graders over Zoom. Later that day, on...

    Sixty Border Patrol agents were found to have committed misconduct by posting “explicit and violent messages” mocking migrants and threatening lawmakers on Facebook — but only two were actually fired, investigators said Monday. A sweeping investigation by the House Oversight and Reform Committee found that the majority of agents had their punishments significantly reduced after it emerged that they’d posted photos and comments in a closed Facebook group back in 2019. Despite an internal Customs and Border Patrol Discipline Review Board recommending that 24 of the 60 agents be fired, only two were ultimately terminated, according to the report.
