  • Injecting Anti-Racism Activism Into the Adoption Process Won’t Help Black Children

    A headline on Newsweek’s web site grabbed my attention in early May: “Wokeness Has Come for Adoption. It’s the Children Who Will Suffer.” This is a subject I know well: My wife and I have fostered three child refugees—from Zimbabwe, Guatemala, and Honduras respectively. These foster children are functionally adopted, and have become full-fledged members of our family. The article noted that a vice-president at Bethany Christian Services, the largest Christian adoption agency in the country, had told a reporter that allowing white families to adopt black children from the foster care system “can cause a lot of harm to...

    Russia has unambiguously stated its position that the self-ruling island of Taiwan is a part of the mainland-based People's Republic of China, as strategic partners Moscow and Beijing seek to further align their positions regarding geopolitical issues across the globe. During his visit Tuesday to the Kazakh capital of Nur-Sultan, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov declared Moscow's stance on the issue. "Russia, like the overwhelming majority of other countries, considers Taiwan to be part of the People's Republic of China," Lavrov said. "We have proceeded and will proceed from this premise in our foreign policy." Only 14 countries today, along...

    A major power outage in Central America cut electricity to some 15 million residents on Wednesday, with the worst impact felt in Honduras and Nicaragua. The two most-affected countries saw power for nearly all residents “practically go down to zero volts,” siad EOR communications head Evelyn Flores. The grid operator said the outage began at 1 p.m. (1900 GMT) but the cause and specific origin of the massive loss of power still being determined. Energy use fell from 8,300 megawatts to just 2,400 megawatts across the region with the exception of Panama and Costa Rica, which were mostly unaffected, EOR...
  • Clues to The Collapse of a Maya Civilization Found in Ancient Human Feces

    Human poop can reveal more than you might think, even when it's really, really old. In a new study of a Central American Maya civilization, samples of ancient feces have shown how the size of this community varied significantly in response to contemporary climate change. Researchers identified four distinct periods of population size shift as a reaction to particularly dry or particularly wet periods, which haven't all been documented before: 1350-950 BCE, 400-210 BCE, 90-280 CE, and 730-900 CE. In addition, the flattened poop piles show that the city of Itzan – which in the modern day would be in...

    Just before the Memorial Day weekend, Senate Democrats quietly confirmed a longtime anti-Israel activist to serve on the United States Postal Service's Board of Governors, raising further questions about the Biden administration's embrace of those who serve on the front lines in the fight to delegitimize the Jewish state. Democrats confirmed by voice vote Friday evening Anton Hajjar, a longtime member of and legal adviser to the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), a notoriously anti-Israel organization that promotes anti-Semitic canards. The group routinely and inaccurately refers to Israel as an "apartheid state," a term meant to stoke anger at Israel, and...

    The Biden administration is taking a page out of former President Donald Trump’s book, striking an agreement with the Northern Triangle countries to militarize their borders in an effort to curb the migrant flow. Speaking to reporters during her daily briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki discussed the agreement hours after a Biden administration official had confirmed it. “So, Mexico made the decision to maintain 10,000 troops at its southern border, resulting in twice as many daily migrant introductions,” the top White House spokeswoman said. “Guatemala surged 1,500 police and military personnel to its southern border with Honduras, and...

    The Biden administration has reached agreements with Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala to boost security at their borders in an attempt to curb a surge of migrants to the southern U.S. boundary, White House officials said on Monday. “The objective is to make it more difficult to make the journey and make crossing the borders more difficult,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters. “We worked with them to increase law enforcement at the border to deter the travel, which is a treacherous journey ... where many lose their lives.” The agreements were struck in recent weeks, she said. Psaki...

    Border crossers released into the interior of the United States by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials have tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus just as President Joe Biden has denied that there is “a crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border. After taking office, Biden reinstated the Catch and Release program where border crossers are freed into the U.S. interior while they await asylum and immigration hearings that many do not ultimately attend, instead opting to live illegally in the country. Aside from about 25,600 migrants enrolled in the now-canceled Remain in Mexico program, border crossers released into the U.S. interior...

    Biden’s amnesty agenda will likely not pass Congress, but orders halting enforcement are creating a new border surge and humanitarian crisis that will come back to haunt him.Democrats went big last week when they unveiled a new immigration “reform” bill. The U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, introduced by 12 Democrat lawmakers in the House and Senate, made it clear that President Joe Biden’s party is not interested in compromise. But it won’t be the details of a bill that is unlikely to pass that most affect the problem of illegal immigration or debates about the issue.The wholesale amnesty congressional Democrats...

    Democrats unveiled an immigration bill last week that would grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants as conditions worsen on the border.Perhaps Democrats could have picked a worse time to unveil their expansive immigration bill that would grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, but not much worse. The legislation, introduced Thursday by congressional Democrats with the full support of the Biden administration, dubbed the “U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021,” comes as President Biden is rolling back border security measures implemented under Trump and the number of illegal border crossings is surging on the southwest border. Combined with the ongoing...

    The Honduran Congress amended the Constitution of the Central American nation to ban all abortions despite pressure from the United Nations and abortions groups to block the added protections for the unborn. The Congress amended the Constitution to explicitly ban abortion last week. The amendment prohibits “the termination of life of the unborn by the mother or a third party under any circumstance” and expanded the protections for the unborn already enshrined in Article 67 of the Honduran Constitution. The Constitution previously recognized the humanity of the child in the womb, stating that the unborn “is to be considered born...

    Remember that migrant caravan that started moving towards the United States southern border a few weeks ago? Well, it’s currently stuck in Guatemala, but another one has arisen and is on its way. The Biden administration does not seem to have much of a plan for it. Even worse, it appears that the president, who hammered his predecessor for his tough stance on immigration, doesn’t have many good options to choose from. Breitbart News reported, “A large group of migrants, most likely seeking asylum in the United States, were spotted heading north via a rail route known as La Bestia....

    Parliament in Honduras has initially approved a bill that will make it virtually impossible to legalise abortion in the country. The new measure will require at least three-quarters of Congress to vote in favour of modifying the abortion law, which is among the strictest in world. Honduras forbids abortion under any circumstance, even rape or incest. Its latest move comes in response to Argentina legalising abortion last month. Across Latin America, there has been increased pro-choice campaigning, known as the "green wave", based on the colour worn by protesters. The new legislation in Honduras hinges on an article in the...
  • Rasmussen Poll: Liberals and Wealthy Welcome Caravan Migrants

    Two of every three Americans want the federal government to block the caravans of migrant workers from Central America, says a Rasmussen Reports poll. The opposition among likely voters is deep and broad — except among liberals and people who earn above $200,000 per year. The poll asked: “Should the U.S. government stop all of the migrants in the Honduras caravan from entering, or should it allow them to enter this country temporarily until each of their cases can be individually reviewed?” The sample of 880 likely voters opposed the entry of the migrants by 60 percent to 30 percent....

    Returned Honduran migrants are directing anger against their president this week after their U.S.-bound caravan was blocked by the region’s security forces, accusing him of making their county unlivable while thwarting their escape to a better life. Honduras is reeling from two back-to-back hurricanes that devastated Central America in November, as well as an historic economic contraction on the back of coronavirus pandemic. President Juan Orlando Hernandez has also been under fire from U.S. prosecutors that have accused him of having ties to drug cartels, an allegation he has strongly denied. An estimated 8,000 Hondurans sought to flee this week...

Joe Biden’s campaign rhetoric promised a “more humane” immigration policy and expanded the number of those able to claim refugee status.

    Well, that didn’t take long. A border crisis is brewing before President-elect Joe Biden takes office. Migrant caravans are forming in Honduras, where residents were hit with a pair of devastating hurricanes last month, adding to the economic hardship caused by COVID-19. Faced with ruin, many Hondurans have ­decided to defy local travel bans and head north. “People are no longer scared of the coronavirus,” one caravan ­organizer told Bloomberg. “They’re going hungry, they’ve lost everything, and some towns are still flooded.” The organizer added that migrants are savvy about shifts in US border policy: “When there is a change...

    It didn’t take very long for a migrant caravan to form in Honduras and begin their journey to the United States in anticipation of Joe Biden taking office. More than 1,000 Hondurans departed a bus terminal Wednesday night headed to Guatemala. If they make it into Guatemala the caravan will continue on until it reaches the U.S. border. This caravan is populated with Hondurans who are leaving due to the devastation caused by two back-to-back hurricanes. The people are looking to Joe Biden to allow them to stay in America, if they make it to the border. “We have asked...
