    Reports of the putrid smell have been flooding in from residents of coastal communities for weeks, the newspaper said. “The stench was crazy, just terrible,” said Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina. “We’re just going into our round robin of endless openings and closures because of the residual sewage in the river.” Hundreds of millions of gallons of toxic water has flowed north from Mexico over the past several decades.

    Sens. Mitt Romney and Kyrsten Sinema are working together on their own minimum wage proposal, after an increase to $15 was stricken from reconciliation for the American Rescue Plan. HuffPost first reported a plan was being drafted. "We're negotiating a minimum wage proposal which we would ultimately take to our group of 20 and see how they react to it, and go from there," Romney told reporters on Wednesday. He did not comment on how much the wage would be, or the timeline for it.

    Texas land commissioner and member of the Bush political dynasty, George P. Bush, told Dallas radio host Mark Davis today that he is considering a primary challenge against incumbent Attorney General Ken Paxton. This isn’t the first time Bush has indicated contemplation of such a run. Last year, after improper use of office allegations were levied at Paxton by members of his executive team, a spokesman for Bush said the land commissioner was “keep[ing] all options open.” But Thursday’s radio spot was the first time the land commissioner himself acknowledged the possibility. “There have been some serious allegations levied against...

    Arizona’s AG is arguing Biden's immigration policies are in violation of the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) — because illegals keep littering as they hop the border. Mark Brnovich said he would force Biden to resume construction of the border wall and reinstate Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy until DHS has complied with NEPA’s requirement that federal agencies assess the environmental impact of major policy changes prior to their implementation. “I think it’s imperative that we do everything we can to try to address the crisis at our border, so I’m using the tools that I have in my toolbox,”...

    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.

    Indiana Attorney General has begun investigations into five Big Tech corporations for censorship of conservative content involving Joe Biden’s nominee, Vanita Gupta. The probe includes companies Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter over whether they have “harmed Indiana consumers through business practices that are abusive, deceptive and/or unfair.” Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita said, “In a free society, few assets are more important to consumers than access to information and the opportunity to express political viewpoints in meaningful forums.” Adding, “It is potentially harmful and unfair for these companies to manipulate content in ways they do not publicly discuss or...

    Republicans on the House Committee on Homeland Security have slammed Customs and Border Protection (CBP) after the agency deleted a press release that detailed the arrest of two Yemeni illegal immigrants who were identified on a terrorism watch list. On Monday, CBP announced how two Yemeni nationals who were placed on the FBI's terror watchlist were arrested in California after crossing illegally from Mexico into the United States. But the announcement was deleted from the CBP website and Twitter account on Tuesday, on the grounds of 'national security'.

The Ford was crammed with 25 people when it hit a tractor-trailer rig on Route 115, 110 miles east of San Diego. “Few of the survivors have been able to describe what happened next,” Jordan writes. “The crunch of metal and glass, the bodies flung dozens of feet across the pavement. Twelve people died on the spot, a...

    You’d be hard-pressed to get Joe Biden to offer an update, opinion, or even a single fact about the border.That’s a huge mess. It’s his job for that not to be a huge mess. The border is a national security issue. He handed it off to Kamala Harris more than a week ago. She laughed when the media asked if she was going to the border, then laughed at parents who want their kids back in school. Laughing at problems has been Harris’s chief public contribution to the administration so far.Biden’s chief contribution has been to make terrible decisions and...
