  • MORGAN ZEGERS: Biden admin to stop DNA testing 'families' at border crossings despite its use to detect child sex trafficking

    A leaked memo exposes the federal government’s plan to end familial DNA testing at the United States’ southern border, a policy implemented to deter child trafficking. In 2019, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) began using DNA testing to determine whether or not familial claims made by immigrants were accurate or fraudulent. Not every family unit — loosely defined as a parent with a child — was tested. When Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents suspected that adults claiming to be the parents of young children were fraudulent, agents would refer the family to ICE for testing to confirm that...

    The Center Square ^ | 5/15/23 | Bethany Blankley
    The former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement under the Trump administration says the Biden administration’s border policies are creating a national security threat that are “almost treasonous.” Tom Homan made the claim as U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operation agents have so far apprehended 332 known or suspected terrorists this fiscal year to date. This includes 125 caught at the southern border and 207 at the northern border. It's the unknown that keeps Homan and others in law enforcement up at night, he said. At a recent town hall event in El Paso organized by...
  • ICE released hundreds of criminals to clear space for border surge

    The Washington Times ^ | 9 May, 2023 | Stephen Dinan
    Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been releasing illegal immigrants, including those with criminal records, from custody to clear space for the looming surge of more migrants at the border, in the latest sign of the government’s scramble to prepare for the onslaught. ICE cut its detention population to fewer than 23,000 at the start of the month, down from more than 28,000 six weeks earlier. That includes hundreds of people with criminal records whom ICE has released. Acting ICE Director Tae Johnson told Congress last month that he wanted to cut the population to as few as 21,000 people to...

    Toyota and other Japanese car makers are trying to extend hybrids to delay electrification of transport in Indonesia. Toyota still talks “customer choice” while not offering fully electric vehicles. Changing emissions regulations in China, the US, Europe and soon Australia mean massive increases in BEV adoption. This is a threat that Toyota fails to acknowledge. Toyota’s claim to be clean energy focused is increasingly being challenged. It's getting too late for Toyota to enter the BEV transformation race. Investors might re-think what this means. It's interesting to think about how one engages with an automotive manufacturer. When I think of...

    Asset-Rewind ^ | 26 April 2023 | Brad Finkelstein
    In separate pleadings, Black Knight and Intercontinental Exchange asked a federal court judge to declare the Federal Trade Commission's structure unconstitutional. The filings, both made on April 25, were in response to the FTC seeking an injunction against their merger in the Federal District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco. Now, both Black Knight and Intercontinental Exchange, are seeking their own injunctive relief against the FTC. These latest pleadings make similar separation of power arguments that were included in their responses made on March 20 to the FTC's filing for an administrative hearing to quash the...

A 34-year-old man who accompanied the two female climbers was severely injured after falling 40 feet.

    The European Union and Germany have reached an agreement that will allow combustion engines to continue to be used in new cars after 2035, but only with synthetic fuels, the 'e-fuels'. The agreement reached will allow the countries of the European Union to approve the Euro 7 standard, presented by Brussels, which aims to accelerate the fight against climate change in Europe, with a drastic reduction in all harmful emissions into the atmosphere. Once the new standard is approved, the European Commission will present a regulation that will allow companies in the automotive sector to continue to produce cars with...

    A rare ice sheet has formed on Emerald Bay, California, on Lake Tahoe, the first time it has been seen in over 30 years — and a sign of the cold weather in the Sierra Nevada in a season normally linked to the spring thaw. For the first time since the early 1990s, Lake Tahoe’s Emerald Bay has completely frozen over. — SFGATE (@SFGate) March 10, 2023 The New York Times reported: In March, the birds usually begin appearing in Emerald Bay, Calif., as the days get longer and the temperature creeps up, melting the snow that feeds the...

    Give me your tired, your poor, your smuggled masses. New York City’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office is “fully booked through October 2032” for appointments to process migrants released at the southern border, according to an official document exclusively reviewed by The Post — making the Big Apple the ideal destination for migrants with dubious asylum claims and causing a massive headache to those with valid ones. The backlog means that migrants may have to wait almost a decade just to enter the immigration court process — which is beset by further delays stretching out years, sources said. “If...

    The New York Times published a blockbuster report on Saturday that details massive nationwide child labor horrors taking place because of Joe Biden opening the border to unaccompanied children in 2021 after President Trump fought hard to shut down child trafficking. The children are working to pay off their debts to cartel traffickers and their sponsors here, as well as to send remittances to their families back home. The Times found children working in factories and plants of major American companies and their suppliers across the country. “Migrant child labor benefits both under-the-table operations and global corporations, the Times found....

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) admitted it has “no records” of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants released into the country with electronic tracking devices, the agency said in a Dec. 22 letter to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). ICE informed TRAC that it had “no records” of the 377,980 individuals monitored by the agency’s “Alternatives to Detention” (ATD) program used to electronically track illegal immigrants released into the country. TRAC had asked for data via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on those in ATD custody from the start of fiscal year 2019 to August...

    It is the end of the road for mainstream rear-wheel-drive, four-door internal combustion engine cars. Kia has announced it will end production of the Stinger next year and is sending it out with a run of 1,000 Tribute Edition cars, with 400 earmarked for the U.S. It will be joined in the history books with the Dodge Charger, which is being replaced in 2024 by the all-electric Daytona Charger SRT coupe. Ford, Chevrolet and the non-luxury Japanese brands all stopped selling this type of car years ago as they transitioned to front-wheel-drive and SUV-focused lineups.

    The COP27 climate change conference wrapped up last month. World leaders flew in private jets to Egypt to discuss how fossil fuels were quickly heating the planet to the point of no return, as humanity was doomed if crucial climate change policies weren't implemented. But while the climate alarmist leaders met in the desert, November's snowfall across the Northern Hemisphere was running at rates exceeding a half-a-century average. NOAA and Rutgers University released new data that showed snow cover across the Northern Hemisphere reached the highest level since measurements began in 1967 and are currently above the 56-year mean. Here's...

    The Biden administration has removed only a small fraction of the number of illegal immigrants that previous administrations did, a top U.S. immigration official acknowledged during a recent deposition. Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody pointed to the testimony as evidence that Biden’s team is “intentionally under-enforcing federal immigration law in a way that has never been seen.” GUARD: “In 2012, a decade ago, under President Obama, ICE removed almost eight times or, excuse me, almost seven times the number of aliens [that] the Biden administration did in either 2021 or 2022, right?” PRICE: “That appears correct.” GUARD: “Now, not only...
