    More On: immigration If it ain’t broke, Joe Biden will break it: Goodwin Even Biden’s ‘border czar’ has had enough, steps down amid crisis White House spending $60 million a week to house border minors: report Dangerous tale of Ecuadorian migrants sends terrible message: It’s worth risk to come to US Border Patrol agents nabbed about 168,000 people crossing at the southern border in March, a 20-year high. Yet neither President Joe Biden nor Vice President Kamala Harris, who he’s put in charge of dealing with the “root causes” of the migrant surge, has deigned to visit the border — or, indeed, done anything to address the crisis, including its “root causes.” It’s clear they simply don’t care. Biden’s “border czar” last month admitted the administration has been sending “mixed messages” to migrants. Was that honest frustration part of why she announced her resignation Friday, not even three months into...
    A former military intelligence analyst warned Saturday that terrorists are plotting to exploit the border crisis and take advantage of President Joe Biden’s policies, which he criticized as “weak.” “They are constantly plotting to conduct attacks against Americans and harm Americans,” Brett Velicovich told Fox News’ “Watters’ World.” “It’s natural for them to think of ways that they can infiltrate this border. And when they see the weak policies on behalf of the Biden administration, I mean what an opportunity for them to come in.” : “All it takes is one of these terrorists to infiltrate our border to be able to wreak havoc across the United States,” Velicovich continued. “The disappointing fact of all this is that the Biden administration loves to deny this border crisis. They love to downplay this terrorism threat along the southern border.” (RELATED: ‘Like The Wild, Wild West’: Texas Mayor Says ‘Southern Border Is...
    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says Joe Biden should shoulder blame amid allegations of child abuse and neglect at an overcrowded San Antonio migrant facility.  Abbott made the claim in a press conference Wednesday evening, following tips to authorities about the alleged behavior inside the Freeman Expo Center. The facility is currently holding thousands of migrant children.   'These products are a biproduct of President Biden's policies,' Abbott declared.  In addition to the claims of child sex abuse and neglect, Abbott also claimed that there were reports of understaffing, children not eating and the failure to separate children with or without COVID-19.  'While we wait on the Biden administration to act, I'm directing DPS and Texas Rangers to immediately begin investigation these allegations,' Abbott declared.  Texas Gov.

    It is "deeply insulting" to describe the Trump administration's border and immigration policies as inhumane, former White House senior adviser Stephen Miller told "Special Report" Monday.  "We ended the process of human smuggling and trafficking that destroys lives, that leads to sexual assault, that leads to physical assault, and that finances the cartels, creating the cycle of violence and poverty," Miller told host Bret Baier. "If the cartels had a vote, they would vote for, unanimously, the border policies in place under Biden. "It is making them rich beyond their wildest dreams," Miller added. "It is inhumane to push men, women and children into the arms of traffickers, and it's also inhumane to have a policy that means more drugs get across our border because our border agents are dealing with the humanitarian crisis. Those drugs are going to end up in U.S. schools and U.S. communities, poisoning American children." The number...
    University of Florida Students blamed former President Donald Trump for the ongoing crisis currently taking place on the U.S. southern border — until they learned that President Joe Biden called for an “immediate surge to the border” as a candidate. Campus Reform reporter Ophelie Jacobson conducted a social experiment at the University of Florida, where she asked students who they believe is to blame for the crisis on the U.S. border: former President Trump or sitting President Biden. “According to the Department of Homeland Security, this is the biggest migrant surge that our country has seen in 20 years,” Jacobson told the students. “Who do you think is to blame for the border crisis right now? Trump or Biden?” All but one student in the video answered that Trump is to blame. Watch Below: “Trump,” said one student, who went on to elaborate, “he was the president for the...
    SUSPECTED terrorists have been 'exploiting the Mexico border crisis', Republican lawmakers have said. President Joe Biden was criticised by Rep. John Katko (R-NY) who said government needed to "wake up." 3Lawmakers have warned that terrorists could eventually exploit openings along the southern border 3Kevin McCarthy addressed the press during the congressional border delegation visit to El Paso, TexasCredit: AFP Katko, who made the revelation, said: "Individuals that they have on the watchlist for terrorism are now starting to exploit the southern border. "We need to wake up," he added. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, who was leading the Republican contingent in El Paso, Texas, said those hitting the border were not just Central American migrants, but people from Iran, Yemen, Sri Lanka and China, among other nations. Last week, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned that terrorists could eventually exploit openings along the southern border. As well as fears over terrorists...
    Banks usually condition the approval of a loan to the contracting of insurance. A requirement to which the entity cannot oblige the client, but that sometimes, despite the cost involvedYes, it is usually of interest to the user to lower the mortgage interest. The first thing to calculate to know whether or not to take out insurance is how much the interest on the mortgage would be lowered, for which you will have to read the details in detail bonus conditions. An aspect “especially relevant, because if they are subscribed and later canceled, the applied rate will rise in the points established in the mortgage deed”, they point out from the financial comparator HelpMyCash. Thus, the key question to ask is whether they really make the mortgage cheaper. To do this, it will be necessary to calculate how much that loan would cost, whether or not those policies are...
    Each year, untold numbers of migrants disappear in the borderlands after being pushed into dangerous and remote terrain by Border Patrol, the same agency that is then tasked with responding to migrants’ search and rescue emergencies. A new report released Wednesday found that the federal agency does not respond to 40% of these emergency calls.   In a series of reports published over the course of five years, the southern Arizona organizations No More Deaths and La Coalición de Derechos Humanos have cataloged and reported the specific Border Patrol policies and tactics that have fueled a crisis of death and disappearance in the borderlands. The first report, released in 2016, detailed the 1994 Border Patrol policy “Prevention Through Deterrence” in which the United States militarized urban border areas in an effort to steer migrants away from ports of entry and into geographically harsher and more remote and hazardous regions, leading...
    In just a few months, there has been a real revolution in the App Store. Due to new privacy policies, developers must ask users for permission to track their activity and indicate all types of data they collectSome companies have started to act in a somewhat … peculiar way. Google had to update its apps since December to show the privacy labels. For example, Facebook recently tried to tear down these policies, claiming they were harmful for small businesses. This move did not work out particularly well for them, as even their own employees turned against them. Now, it is Google that seems to be making a move. The Mountain View Company doesn’t seem particularly upset regarding new policies. However, it is taking its time to update them and publish the required information on the use of the data. This could be the reason why the apps themselves have been...
    A man whose son was killed by an illegal immigrant is very upset with President Biden's immigration policies. "I don’t even think Joe Biden knows what he's doing. There are people behind the scenes, pulling the strings," Jamiel Shaw told "Fox & Friends First." Shaw said that there is no justification for stopping construction of the border wall, which is designed to keep criminals out.  Shaw is the father of a Black teen murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2008. Jamiel Shaw Jr., 17, was shot in March 2008 by illegal immigrant and gang member Pedro Espinoza, who mistook the high school football player for a member of a rival gang. A jury later convicted Espinoza and sentenced him to death. "You know, there's no reason for him to ignore the families. You know, our families are in the cemetery. At the same time, he's rewarding illegal aliens with amnesty. You know,...
    President Joe Biden signed three executive orders on climate change Wednesday, vowing to put the issue "at the center" of U.S. national security and domestic and foreign policy. The executive action follows his decision to shut down construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, which was expected to sustain about 11,000 U.S. jobs in 2021 and generate $1.6 billion in gross wages. Prior to signing the orders, Biden kicked-off his press briefing by saying "Today is climate day at the White House, which means that today is jobs day at the White House." Neal Crabtree, 46, was among the first of the U.S. workers impacted by the new administration’s aggressive approach to fighting climate change. "I think a better way to put it would be a lack of jobs day," Crabtree responded to the comment in an interview with Fox News. REPS.

    As leaders in Oregon and Washington pledge an end to near-nightly chaos caused by antifa and other affiliated radical groups, bail reform efforts in those states could mean any increase in arrests will prove ineffective. Several demonstrations against President Biden's inauguration quickly turned violent in cities such as Portland and Seattle as activists hoped to send a message to the new Democratic administration that their gripes remain with the criminal justice system, climate change, and general economic inequality. Biden's alleged commitment to centrist policies and compromise, some activists complained, make him ill-suited to tackle the country's most pressing problems. In Portland, left-wing extremists shattered the windows of the headquarters for the Democratic Party of Oregon and graffitied its walls with anti-Biden messages. The state party lamented the damage and the fact that it was "not the first time our building has been vandalized during the past year."...
    On Friday’s broadcast of “Fox News Primetime,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) said that President Joe Biden’s orders on the Keystone XL pipeline and Paris Climate Accords are going to increase manufacturing in China, who “can keep polluting while our economy gets hurt.” Crenshaw said, “So, listen, here’s what it comes down to, if you’re going to claim that you’re the party of the American working class, you actually have to support working.” He added, “Also, it’s bad for the environment. Listen, the radical left doesn’t really care about the environment. This is really about the culture war to them. And for them, fossil fuels are just evil. They don’t know why. They don’t have to tell you why. You’re stupid if you ask why. But they just want to tell you they’re evil. Now, the truth is, when you build pipelines to transport oil and gas, you’re doing it in...
    A plethora of lawmakers have refused to stay home and follow the very coronavirus guidelines they urged citizens to follow. Many of these lawmakers have flouted their own coronavirus advice — and then apologized or excused their actions as “essential.”(RELATED: Here Are The Lawmakers Who Refused To Stay Home After Telling You To) The Daily Caller News Foundation compiled a list of the biggest offenders, including: Cuomo, Kuehl, New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio, D.C.

    The coronavirus pandemic has produced grim numbers that keep rising, like case counts, hospitalization rates and deaths. But there’s that hasn’t increased this year: the cost of life insurance. “We find limited evidence that life insurance companies increased premiums or decreased policy offerings due to COVID-19,” researchers said Monday in a study analyzing more than 800,000 life insurance-policy quotes between 2014 and October 2020. University of Kentucky and Illinois State University economists did discover fewer policies being extended to the oldest of potential policyholders, above age 75, but even then the cost of those premiums did not noticeably increase. By July, there was a 13.6% drop in the number of policies offered for one-, five- and 10-year terms offered to this demographic, according to the study distributed by the National Bureau of Economic Research. In all, the “minimal observable adjustments” — which come as more people are thinking...
    Fox News contributor Juan Williams said Wednesday that while he agreed elected officials should follow their own coronavirus restrictions, the real problem was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Williams addressed the issue on “The Five” alongside Sandra Smith, Jesse Watters, Greg Gutfeld and Dagen McDowell, explaining that having politicians who enacted the right policies was more important than having politicians who would abide by those policies themselves. (RELATED: ‘It’s Kind Of Like Having A Fat Trainer’: Jesse Watters Slams Hypocritical COVID-19 Regulations) WATCH: Smith began the segment with a list of Democratic politicians who had been caught engaging in activities — such as traveling or dining in groups that exceeded the CDC guidelines — that did not align with the recommendations and restrictions they had put in place. “Why do these stories continue?” Smith asked. “Politicians flouting their own guidelines.” “These guys are hypocrites and they should be called out...
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) blasted “corporate Democrats” for rejecting far-left policies in the wake of their losses in the U.S. House of Representatives, reflecting the bitter divide between Democrats as moderate members blame far-left proposals for their party’s defeats. In an op-ed published Wednesday, Sanders praised the work of the “progressive community” for bringing Joe Biden (D) over the finish line, but admitted that the “blue wave” did not materialize, calling the results in both the House and Senate races “disappointing.” In the days following, there have been reports of Democrat infighting between moderates and the radical left. “We have to commit to not saying the words ‘defund the police’ ever again,” Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) told her colleagues. “We need to not ever use the words socialist or socialism ever again. It does matter, and we have lost good members because of that,” she continued. She added that Democrats...
    Two people have been arrested over the murder of a prostitute whose dismembered body was found in a Brooklyn park two years ago. Cory Martin, 33, and Adelle Anderson, 32, were arrested last week over the murder of Brandy Odom, 26, whose remains were discovered in Canarsie Park in April 2018. Prosecutors say Martin and Anderson, a pimp and a madame, took out two life insurance policies worth a total of $200,000 on Odom shortly before she was killed, then tried to cash them in after she was dead.

    Getty: "People look out at the Statue of Liberty from the Staten Island Ferry on January 06, 2019 in New York City." White House aide and noted white supremacist Stephen Miller’s immoral wish to block as many refugees from the U.S. as possible hasn’t even spared refugees who’ve risked their own lives to assist U.S. military overseas. The New York Times reports that of the 4,000 slots reserved for Iraqis who’ve assisted U.S. military, only 161 were filled in the last fiscal year.  “Between endless red tape, slashed refugee admissions, and new ‘extreme vetting’ measures, the U.S. has made it all but impossible for its wartime partners to get the safe passage they were promised,” tweeted The International Refugee Assistance Project. “And the stakes couldn't be higher for those left behind.” The Times reports that kind of extreme vetting has even targeted children, and refugees are being “asked to provide phone numbers and addresses dating back 10 years...
    VIDEO4:2004:20Political strategist on why undecided voters are torn between Trump and BidenSquawk Box American voters who remain undecided about the upcoming presidential election are weighing their dislike of President Donald Trump against their concern about Democratic nominee Joe Biden's policies, longtime Republican pollster and strategist Frank Luntz told CNBC on Friday. "They are nervous about Trump's persona and they are nervous about Joe Biden's policies, and that's what is holding them back," Luntz said on "Squawk Box." "It's not that they can't see a difference between the two candidates. They see a tremendous difference." But with 18 days until the Nov. 3 election, Luntz said the task before voters is making up their mind about which of those differences is most important: "The fact they really don't like Donald Trump as a person or they are really scared about what Joe Biden might do if he became president?" Luntz's comments...
    (CNN)Nearly 3 million Americans who don't qualify for Obamacare subsidies have dropped their coverage since 2016, a new federal report shows.As the battle over the Affordable Care Act's fate heats up, the Trump administration released the study Friday showing that unsubsidized enrollment cratered by 45% between 2016 and 2019. Officials point to the trend as a sign of the law's failings.The declines varied widely by state, with only 4% of the unsubsidized Rhode Islanders leaving but 90% of unsubsidized Iowans dropping out. The report looked at individual market policies that adhere to the law's provisions and are bought either on the Affordable Care Act Exchanges or off them.Subsidies are not available to those who make more than 400% of the poverty level, which this year comes to about $50,000 for an individual and $103,000 for a family of four.Obamacare premiums for the benchmark silver plan skyrocketed 22% for 2017, partly...
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Thursday he doesn't see how Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden can win the Sunshine State with President Trump doing better than he did in 2016. "I don't see how Biden is able to win and I think the issue contrasts are very strong," the Republican governor told "Fox & Friends." "Biden is somebody that says he would shut down the country when he's president. That is a disaster. We cannot do that. That will not play well here in Florida," DeSantis explained. He added Biden's foreign policy record has been "repeated failures" compared with Trump's successes, especially on China, but there is room for improvement.

    Childless employees of tech companies have been demanding that they be given the same benefits extended to parents during the pandemic. Workers at Facebook, Twitter and Salesforce have all complained about discrimination, The New York Times reported on Saturday. Parents have hit back, however.

Tech companies have been among the most generous to parents - sparking a backlash  Facebook offered 10 weeks of paid time off for employees whose child couldn't attend school Tech firms were among the first to pivot to working from home, and among the first to roll out policies to help working parents.

    Integrated circuits on a circuit board. The semiconductor industry has been in focus during the U.S.-China trade war.filonmar | E+ | Getty Images China has unveiled a slew of policies to help boost its domestic semiconductor industry as tensions with the U.S. continue to rise, but analysts have cast doubt over whether they will have a major impact.  A large part of the incentives from China's State Council focus on tax relief. For example, a manufacturer that has been in operation for more than 15 years and that makes so called 28 nanometer or more advanced chips, will be exempt from corporate income tax for up to 10 years.  For chip manufacturers, the preferential treatment period starts from the first profit-making year.  But it's not just the actual manufacturing side of the industry getting tax relief. Other players working in areas from chip design and software, areas where the U.S....
    It’s election season, so once again Democrats are pandering for Black votes. Their latest gimmick is for presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden to very publicly consider — and perhaps select — a Black woman to be his running mate. In a move to pander for the votes of women, former Vice President Biden earlier promised that he would only consider women to be his vice presidential pick. White Democrats feel deeply entitled to the Black vote. This summer’s unrest has deepened that sense of entitlement, not checked it. CIVIL RIGHTS ATTORNEY BLASTS DEMOCRATIC PARTY: 'THEY BELIEVE EVERY BLACK MAN HAS TO VOTE FOR THEM' History shows that White Democrats largely ignore Black Americans until important elections when Democrats, like clockwork, create a racist bogeyman out of the Republican nominee (no matter who it is), demonizing Republicans as an existential threat to the Black community. For example in the wake of...
    In June, Reddit issued a new content policy that explicitly banned "communities and users that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability," following pressure from users. Several moderators of Black-designated subreddits spoke with Insider about their experience on the platform, which they say brings community, entertainment, and an onslaught of harassment.  In the past, moderators of Black communities on the platform have had to implement their own safeguards against hate speech. Tactics have included going private, banning users, and, in one case, implementing a privacy feature called "country-club mode." While many say Reddit has not been sufficiently responsive in the past, recent measures are a "good first step" in moving forward, according to some moderators.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When the Reddit user TheYellowRose joined the platform in 2012, she was simply looking to "pursue memes." But the now 30-year-old health inspector, who spoke on the...
    In my years as an attorney with Brooklyn Defender Services, I have witnessed a disturbing truth: police lie so often there is a word for it. “Testilying” happens in court and on paperwork, even when an incident was caught on video. Cops also lie to the public about policy issues to maintain power. Commissioner Dermot Shea and other top NYPD officials continue their campaign of lies and disinformation against bail reform, which gave all New Yorkers some of the same pre-trial rights as the wealthy – namely, the right to fight a case while free and presumed innocent. Shea claims, contrary to the NYPD’s own data, that the recent tragic shootings in NYC are the result of more equitable treatment of poor New Yorkers facing certain criminal charges. He would have us believe that the police are so disempowered by critics that they can no longer swoop in to stop crime.
    Mark Zuckerberg has told Facebook employees that the company is 'not gonna change' their policies on 'hate speech', despite an advertising boycott having cost the company in excess of $7 billion. The Facebook CEO addressed a staff town hall on Friday, in light of the growing #StopHateForProfit campaign.  More than 500 companies have now signed up, calling on the tech giant to do more to prevent racist and hate-filled posts on its site.  'We're not gonna change our policies or approach on anything because of a threat to a small per cent of our revenue, or to any percent of our revenue,' said Zuckerberg, according to The Information. Mark Zuckerberg, 36, told employees on Friday that the company would not bow to pressure 'My guess is that all these advertisers will be back on the platform soon enough.' He added that the boycott was a 'reputational and a partner...
    As official U.S. military travel is reportedly set to resume June 30, lagging airline policies could force military personnel to leave their pets behind. The Department of Defense (DOD) issued an immediate travel ban April 2 for all personnel within and without the continental U.S., whether active duty military or DOD employee. This order was extended through June 30, at which point sources tell the Daily Caller the DOD and other government entities will be lifting their bans. Military orders are resuming in anticipation of the June 30 travel ban expiration, but sources from within the DOD told the Daily Caller that their requests to transport their pets are being denied by the airlines. When airlines tightened their belts by means including furloughs, flight cancelations and reduction of pet transport services, Reuters reported in May that many pets were left stranded. So far, there is no clear indication of when...
    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle privately support the #StopHateforProfit campaign that pressures advertisers to withdraw spend from Facebook over its policies on moderating hate speech. A spokesman confirmed the couple's stance to Insider. The two are high-profile additions to a growing list of brands and companies that have temporarily or longer-term halted ad spend on Facebook and other social media companies over the proliferation of hate speech.

    (CNN)A growing list of companies say they'll join an advertiser boycott on Facebook in protest of what they say are the site's failures to stop the spread of hate.A civil rights coalition, which includes the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the NAACP, launched the #StopHateforProfit campaign last week when it called on major corporations to put a pause on advertising on Facebook, citing the company's "repeated failure to meaningfully address the vast proliferation of hate on its platforms."Within days, outdoor retailers REI, The North Face, and Patagonia said they were in. Other companies, including Upwork and Dashlane, joined too.In a statement to CNN on Friday, Carolyn Everson, vice president of Facebook's global business group, responded by saying, "We deeply respect any brand's decision and remain focused on the important work of removing hate speech and providing critical voting information. Our conversations with marketers and civil rights organizations are about how, together,...
    Seema Verma, the administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), told Breitbart News exclusively that New York’s Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other Democrat governors originally issued guidance that contradicted federal guidelines for nursing homes battling the coronavirus pandemic. “I just want to make it very clear that our guidance was absolutely crystal clear,” Verma said in an exclusive interview late last week. “It was clear and unmistakable. Any insinuation to the contrary is woefully mistaken at best and dishonest at worst. We put out our guidance on March 13. It’s very clear when it says that, I’m actually going to read this to you, it says that: ‘When should a nursing home accept a resident who is diagnosed with COVID-19?’ It says: ‘A nursing home can accept a resident diagnosed with COVID-19 and still under transmission-based precautions,’ which means if this person is infectious you have...
    AMC, Regal and Cinemark, the three largest movie theater chains in the U.S., will be opening their doors again in July. Most movie theaters have been shut down since mid-March in the interest of public health, which has served as a huge blow to the exhibition side of the business. Though many lovers of the theatrical experience are eager to return to theaters, all three chains have been met with major backlash online after it was revealed that they won’t be requiring guests to wear face masks. Regal and Cinemark previously announced their respective reopening plans. In both cases, employees will be required to wear masks, but not customers. AMC, the largest chain in the country, recently revealed its plans, which were remarkably similar. The exception being in states that require face masks in public. AMC CEO and president Adam Aron said the lack of a mask requirement had to...
    New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo deflected criticism over state nursing home COVID-19 deaths, accusing Republicans of politicizing the issue that was exacerbated by his own policies, Mediaite reported. More than 6,000 nursing home workers and residents have died of COVID-19, many of them while Cuomo had a policy in place requiring nursing homes to readmit residents who had tested positive for the virus — forcing many infected people into enclosed areas with other high-risk individuals. Cuomo was asked during a radio interview whether heavy criticism from media about the nursing home policy caused him to admit to himself that he made some mistakes. Cuomo instead criticized Republican congresspeople for only targeting Democratic governors for criticism, and blamed much of the criticism on "pro-Trump propaganda." "No. The nursing home is an unfortunate situation on two levels. Number one, people in nursing homes died," Cuomo responded. "The nursing home [issue]...
