This is… troubling. The ongoing and apparently worsening calamity at the southern border as protected individuals like Central American women and children stream across the border is not merely a humanitarian and political crisis but a health crisis as well. While the influx of immigrants is not being curtailed, the health risks associated with that inflow are apparently being mitigated. “It’s getting better,” said U.S. Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran in an interview with San Antonio’s WOAI. “Everyone is being screened and receiving medical care.” That’s nice, but buried at the bottom of that report was a deeply disturbing revelation that the federal

The Mississippi tea party brawl isn´t over yet, an attorney for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel told reporters on Monday, and the insurgent conservative´s campaign expects to find evidence of enough voter fraud in the June 24 primary runoff to trigger a new election. That would be the third bare-knuckle contest between McDaniel and six-term senator Thad Cochran, a 76-year-old moderate Republican whose embrace of immigration reform and other liberal-leaning policies made him a prime target for the tea party movement. McDaniel campaign counsel Mitch Tynersaid Monday that he ´would be surprised if we don’t find´ enough fraudulent votes

For more than 35 years, the Border Patrol has referred illegal immigrants to Annunciation House in downtown El Paso, Texas, depending on the non-profit to steer them toward the social services they need while they await deportation hearings. (Snip) Garcia, who has dedicated his life to helping the poor, including illegal immigrants, now finds himself angry with the federal government for not anticipating and preparing for the border crisis, which has seen as many as 50,000 unaccompanied children from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador flood across the border. Experts say they are fleeing exploding violence in their homelands, and are

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador -- Every day, as she travels to the food stall she operates, Mirna Isabel Villalta crosses an invisible but dangerous boundary. Her modest home is in a part of San Salvador controlled by the Mara Salvatrucha, a gang so ruthless and sprawling that the Obama administration has labeled it an international criminal organization. Her food stall is in the city center in an area controlled by Barrio 18, a gang that despises the Mara Salvatrucha. She knows she’s breaking an unspoken rule. “You can’t go from one barrio to the other,” Villalta said. But she does. Every day. And

University of North Carolina School of Law’s Professor Gene Nichol is a real opponent of income inequality. That’s why he gets paid $205,400 to teach one class, plus more to run the Poverty Center at the school. Nichol’s noble opposition to income inequality puts him in a class with other great academic class warriors like Elizabeth Warren, who was paid $350,000 by Harvard Law to teach a single course and Clinton’s former Labor Secretary turned inequality campaigner Robert Reich who pulls in $235,791 a year from a public university at UC-Berkeley to teach a course on “Wealth and Poverty” making

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador — In his rotating wardrobe of team jerseys and visors, Jose Aquiles often stalked the sidelines of his students’ soccer games, shouting instructions and praise. A pro in his younger days, Aquiles lived for the sport, never missing a chance to play or coach. But at a tournament one Friday in April, he appeared pensive, foregoing his usual perch for an out-of-the way bench — a towel slung across his head to block the sun. “That was the last time I saw him,” said Luis Winfredo Montoya, a fellow teacher at the school in rural Santa Lucia, in

Hamas militants in Gaza have fired ´dozens´ of rockets into southern Israel after six of its men died in an Israeli airstrike, the Islamist group said. The bombardment was confirmed by the Israeli army which said militants had launched ´a few dozen rockets´ within a short period of time. [Snip] At least four rockets were intercepted over Netivot by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, while another 16 struck the area around the southern city of Beersheva, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Gaza, and which is home to 200,000 people, the army said.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government is planning surveillance of British and American intelligence gathering in Germany for the first time since 1945 in response to an embarrassing US-German “double agent” scandal which has damaged relations between Berlin and Washington. The unprecedented change to Berlin’s counter-espionage policy was announced by Mrs Merkel’s Interior Minister, Thomas de Maiziere. He told the mass-circulation Bild newspaper that Berlin wanted “360 degree surveillance” of all intelligence gathering operations in Germany. His announcement came as several MPs in Mrs Merkel’s government demanded the expulsion of the American agents in Germany who last week were found to have used

President Barack Obama´s chief spokesman said Monday that most on the tens of thousands of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are unlikely to qualify for humanitarian relief that would prevent them from being sent back from their home countries. The pointed warning came as the White House prepared to send a funding request to Congress detailing the additional money Obama wants to spend hiring more immigration judges and opening new detention facilities to deal with the border crisis. White House officials told the Associated Press that they planned to ask Congress for more than $2 billion on

President Barack Obama’s aggressive and controversial Climate Action Plan grew out of a draft proposal from one of America´s richest environmental activist groups, it emerged Monday. The Natural Resources Defense Council, which spent $41 million of its $210 million nest egg last year pushing for changes in energy policy, circulated a 110-page document in 2012 that outlined what would become the president´s latest salvo in the global-warming wars.

At the same time the Obama administration once again renewed its Equal Pay push, the White House released salary figures for White House staff. Upon analysis, the Washington Post, among others, concluded that the gender pay gap (as defined by the White House) that has existed since President Obama was elected is as wide as it was in 2009, a thirteen percent difference: The average male White House employee currently earns about $88,600, while the average female White House employee earns about $78,400, according to White House data released Tuesday. That is a gap of 13 percent. In 2009, male employees made

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” proposed Sunday that the U.S. cut off aid to countries whose unaccompanied illegal minors enter the U.S. if those countries “don’t keep them and take care of them.” “About a third of the little girls are raped in the process of getting here. It´s a humanitarian problem, but it´s apart from immigration reform. This is a specific problem created by an impression that if you get to America, you can stay.

He could become the Willie Horton of the immigration crisis. Milton Mateo Garcia, 28, was caught one year ago entering the U.S. illegally across the Mexican border and was deported back to his native Honduras. But Mr. Garcia soon re-entered the U.S. illegally — federal authorities either don’t know how, or they won’t say. He settled with relatives in Philadelphia, where Mayor Michael Nutter had signed an executive order in April declaring it a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants.

Liberals should spend less time lauding the dissents in last week´s Hobby Lobby decision by the U.S. Supreme Court and more time reading them. If they did, they´d notice that some of their main arguments find little support -- even from liberal justices. President Barack Obama´s administration has sought to require almost all employers that offer health insurance to cover contraceptives. The court´s majority ruled that Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. and similar companies could refuse to cover contraceptives to which they have religious objections. Many liberals say that this ruling was flawed because the Religious Freedom Restoration Act -- the

President Obama evidently has decided not to put a human face on the crisis unfolding at the U.S. southern border—not even his own. The White House said over and over again Monday that Obama will not travel to the border with Mexico despite flying to Texas this week to raise money for Democratic candidates there. It´s certainly in part a political decision, one meant to avoid taking ownership of a difficult issue on which the White House would prefer to share blame. (Snip) In other words, if Obama goes goes to the border, he owns the problem. If he doesn't, he's blasted for a lack of leadership.

On May 29, President Barack Obama had lunch at the White House with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The likely 2016 presidential contender has been to hundreds of West Wing meetings, first as first lady, then as senator, and finally as the top American diplomat. But this face-to-face was unusual. Unlike dozens of presidential meetings every week — and a similar Obama-Clinton meeting in July 2013 — it was not announced in advance. Instead, reporters who cover Obama learned about the secret visit from a People magazine tweet, and ultimately managed to wring a terse sentence from an anonymous

He also told the Department of Health and Human Services, which runs the center for unaccompanied alien children -- mostly teenagers -- that he plans to make other, unannounced visits to Ft. Sill, because "the tragedy that is occurring requires unfettered access." "I will bring my staff, interpreters and legal counsel," Bridenstine wrote in a July 5 letter to HHS´s congressional liaison.

A federal judge approved a preliminary settlement between the N.F.L. and lawyers for the more than 4,500 retired players who sued the league, accusing it of hiding the dangers of concussions and repeated head hits. The judge’s consent, which was widely anticipated, means that all of the roughly 18,000 retired players and their beneficiaries can now vote on the deal, which includes a promise from the N.F.L. to pay an unlimited amount of awards to players with certain severe neurological conditions.
