    EL PASO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – U.S. Customs and Border Protection is reminding the public that starting today, Nov. 8, only those fully vaccinated foreign nationals with appropriate and valid entry documents will be permitted to cross into the country from Mexico at land border crossings for non-essential reasons. “We are hearing about rumors circulating on social media and elsewhere that this change applies to anyone. I can assure you it does not,” said U.S. Customs and Border Protection El Paso Director of Field Operations Hector Mancha. “It is vitally important that members of the public only consult official government sources the most accurate and reliable information related to the November 8 changes.” READ MORE: Dallas Homicide Detectives Arrest Kerry Lamont Webb In Connection To James Arthur Davis SlayingThe new rule comes 20 months after the United States shut crossings for non-essential trips.

    President Biden’s pick to lead Customs and Border Protection (CBP) once settled a case with a former member of his protective detail who claimed that the then-police chief engaged in sexual harassment and then retaliated against him when it was reported. Chris Magnus, currently police chief of Tucson, Arizona, and former police chief of Richmond, California, settled the case – which stems from his time as chief in Richmond -- in 2017 out of court for an undisclosed amount. He has since described the claim as "bogus" and that he was targeted because he is a gay man. BIDEN CBP PICK CHRIS MAGNUS FACED CLAIMS HE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BLACK OFFICERS, MADE RACIST JOKES In the 2015 complaint, which sued Magnus and the City of Richmond, a former member of his protective detail claimed that Magnus "while dressed in questionable civilian attire, approached plaintiff while walking his dog, and began touching plaintiff inappropriately on his arm, and began rubbing plaintiff on his upper leg, in an obvious sexual manner."

    Swedish police investigating the car crash death of a controversial artist who had survived multiple assassination attempts after drawing a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed cannot explain why his car was travelling so fast. Lars Vilks, 75, was killed Sunday when the police car he was travelling in veered onto the wrong side of the road and collided with a truck.  Both vehicles caught fire and the truck driver, 45, was taken to hospital with serious injuries, while the two police protection officers and Vilks were all killed. Investigators believe there were no external influences that led to the death of the artist and say the crash may have been caused by a burst tyre. But they are unable to explain why the car was travelling at around 100mph, witnesses say, in a 68mph zone.

    A federal law enforcement officer arrested at the "Justice for J6" rally in front of the Capitol on Sunday will not face any charges. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer, identified as a 27-year-old man from New Jersey by the Associated Press , was searched by Capitol Police after demonstrators said they saw him with a handgun.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal law enforcement officer was arrested carrying a gun at Saturday’s rally at the U.S. Capitol billed to support the suspects charged in January’s insurrection but will not be prosecuted. The 27-year-old New Jersey man is an officer with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. He was arrested by Capitol Police for illegally possessing a gun on the grounds of the Capitol after people in the crowd reported seeing him with a handgun and notified nearby officers. His arrest and presence at the event were surprising because the rally was billed as an event to support those who have been charged in January’s riot. That riot left dozens of police officers beaten, bloodied and bruised as the crowd of pro-Trump rioters, some armed with pipes, bats and bear spray, charged into the Capitol, quickly overrunning the overwhelmed police force. During January’s riot, one officer was beaten and shocked with a stun gun repeatedly until he had a heart attack; another was foaming at the mouth and screaming for help as rioters crushed him between...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis discussed law and order legislation he will "sign very soon" to prevent riots and strengthen police protections in Florida.  RON DESANTIS: Over the summer, we were one of the states that said ‘we’re not having riots in the state of Florida,’ so we put our foot down, we protected our folks. The bill I’m going to sign very soon is the strongest set of reforms in the country to even strengthen our hand more. For example, if a local government tries to defund the police, we at the state can stop that. We’re able to put people in jail if they riot or assault a police officer. And, in fact, you assault a police officer during a riot, you have a mandatory jail sentence of at least six months. We also have provisions to prevent mob intimidation tactics. I think it’s probably the most comprehensive piece of law and order legislation I’ve seen. If you are rioting and you get arrested, you go to the jail and you stay in jail until you have your first...
