Third migrant child dies in US custody

He was detained on April 19 by agents at the southern border, Guatemala’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said. One day later, he was sent to a government-contracted youth shelter in Brownsville, Texas, to begin a process of family reunification, according to the ministry.

The following morning, employees noticed that the teen was sick with “fever, chills and a headache,” Stauffer said. They took him to a nearby hospital where he received treatment. He then returned to the shelter.

Describing the boy’s medical condition, the Guatemalan Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the boy had “a severe infection in the frontal lobe that showed no improvement, even after a surgical intervention to stabilize the pressure inside the head area.”

Fourht dead migrant in CBP custody


U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced the death Tuesday, saying agents arrested the 40-year-old man early Sunday for re-entering the country illegally. His identity wasn't released.

He died at an El Paso hospital after receiving treatment for flu-like symptoms and liver and kidney failure. He's the fourth migrant to die in CBP custody since December, including an 8-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl.

In a statement, ACLU Border Rights Center Director Astrid Dominguez said "a transparent and independent investigation into the conditions at CBP detention facilities and its medical care practices is needed immediately."

[LIVE UPDATE] Trump signed veto against Congress' obstruction of national emergency declaration


Thank you @POTUS for standing up for America, supporting @DHSgov and declaring this humanitarian & security crisis exactly what it is – a national emergency. It was a pleasure to see our great partners in state & local law enforcement & the Angel parents in the Oval Office today!
~ Kirstjen Nielsen

According to CBP, the agency used fiscal year 2017 funds to construct "approximately 38 of 40 miles of wall in place of outdated designs in San Diego and El Centro, California, Santa Teresa, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas."

"The House and Senate resoundingly rejected the President’s lawless power grab, yet the President has chosen to continue to defy the Constitution, the Congress and the will of the American people," Pelosi said in a statement.

House votes unanimously for revelation of Mueller report by William Barr


House Republicans said the resolution was unnecessary and a waste of time, but they ultimately joined Democrats to approve it. Four Republicans — Reps. Justin Amash of Michigan, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Paul Gosar of Arizona, and Thomas Massie of Kentucky — voted “present.”

“A vote for this resolution will send a clear signal to both the American people and to the Department of Justice that Congress believes transparency is a fundamental principle necessary to ensure that government remains accountable to the public,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), the lead sponsor of the effort.

Democrats have argued that the only acceptable redactions are grand jury material, classified information, and national security sources and methods. Republicans have largely deferred to Barr’s judgment, but they have publicly backed the idea that Mueller’s report should be released given the overwhelming public ... Show more...
 

US Senate voted to halt further military support to Saudi Arabia


"We have the opportunity to take a major step forward in ending the horrific war in Yemen and alleviating that terrible, terrible suffering being experienced by the people in one of the poorest countries in the world," Senator Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, said.

Congress would need two-thirds majorities in both chambers to override a presidential veto and have the resolution take effect. So far, backers lack sufficient votes in both the House and Senate to do so.

Asked whether senators had been briefed on the White House's discussions in Riyadh, Kaine told Al Jazeera: "No we have not. Not about Khashoggi. Not about Yemen. Not about discussions about nuclear technology transfer. We have no information."

On the hearing of Wells Fargo before the House (feat. AOC, Maxine Waters et al.)


That’s not all. Over the past several years, Wells Fargo has been slapped with fines for abuses involving members of the military (including charging them higher interest rates, improperly repossessing their cars without a court order, and not disclosing their military status to courts while trying to evict them), numerous allegations of racism, and other consumer abuses.

“The past few years have taught us that our company does well by doing right. But doing right does not stop with simply repairing harm and rebuilding trust,” Sloan, who was last seen in the halls of Congress getting dragged to hell and back by Elizabeth Warren, said in prepared remarks.

Several Democrats, such as Rep. Carolyn Maloney and Ayanna Pressley, used their turns to sharply criticize Wells Fargo for its relationship with the NRA and the firearms industry. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, meanwhile, slammed the bank for having its grubby paws all over some of the wor... Show more...
 

WashPost fact-checkers call out AOC's comment on Trump's opioid crisis policy


In a tweet on March 8, the freshman Democratic lawmaker criticized Drumpf for wanting to divert money via a national emergency declaration to build a wall on the southern border but did not take the same action over opioid overdoses.

“Drumpf wanted almost $6 billion for his wall, which Congress refused. But Congress acted to give the administration more than $6 billion for the opioid crisis, so there was little need for him to transfer funds without congressional authorization,” the Washington Post concluded on Tuesday.

“One can question the effectiveness of the Drumpf response to the opioid epidemic without resorting to red herrings and false equivalency. Only in the most narrow technical way is her statement correct, so we cannot quite consider this a Four-Pinocchio claim. So Ocasio-Cortez earns three,” the Washington Post wrote.

Demented POTUS fires back at laughable right-winged populist pundit


“Wacky Nut Job @AnnCoulter, who still hasn’t figured out that, despite all odds and an entire Democrat Party of Far Left Radicals against me (not to mention certain Republicans who are sadly unwilling to fight), I am winning on the Border,” Drumpf wrote on Twitter.

Coulter's protestations, echoed by members of the House Freedom Caucus and other conservative lawmakers, were partly blamed in December for Drumpf’s decision not to sign a stopgap funding proposal that allocated far less than the $5.7 billion he had demanded for the wall — plunging the federal government into a 35-day partial shutdown.

“Ann Coulter, I don’t know her. I hardly know her. I haven’t spoken to her in way over a year. But the press loves saying ‘Ann Coulter.’ Probably if I did speak to her she’d be very nice. I just don’t have the time to speak to her,” Drumpf said.

Apprehensions at US-MEX border not going to exceed one million


Through the first five months of fiscal year 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports there have been 268,044 apprehensions – a monthly average of 53,609, which would put the U.S. on track for 643,306 this fiscal year.

As for the 2019 calendar year, there have been 114,436 apprehensions in the first two months of this year. That’s an average of 57,218 per month, or 686,616 a year.

Way to go to exceed one million. Trump has a lot of work to do in diminishing safety and wealth in the states southwards, a lot of military interventions are required to accomplish this challenge.

When Nielsen said “this year,” she was referring to calendar year 2019, not the fiscal year, a department spokesperson told us. The secretary gets to “close to 1 million” based on “the rough estimate of 2,700 people encountered per day in February,” the spokesperson said.

Californian judge tells Trump administration to reunite more families


"But a government watchdog report revealed that the administration may have separated thousands of additional families under an earlier pilot program that was not disclosed.

Attorneys for the Justice Department had argued that the class action lawsuit should not be expanded because "they assert it would be too burdensome for them to identify the members of the newly proposed class," the judge wrote.

"The court made clear that potentially thousands of children's lives are at stake and that the Drumpf administration cannot simply ignore the devastation it has caused," said Lee Gelernt, the lead attorney in the ACLU's family separation lawsuit, in a statement.

DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen defends Trump's separation policy


"This is not a manufactured crisis," Nielsen told the House Homeland Security Committee. "This is truly an emergency."

A misspelling: There's an emergency along the border, but not the emergency Trump made up, that caused this inhumane policy of spearating children from their parents, causing a lifelong trauma.

"No amount of verbal gymnastics will change that she knew the Drumpf administration was implementing a policy to separate families at the border," Democratic Rep. Bernie Thompson said.

"It should be very clear from these numbers that we are facing alarming trends in the rising volumes of people illegally crossing our southwest border or arriving at our ports of entry without documents," CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said Tuesday.

GOP Sen.s face severe assailments from Trump for opposiing him


"He says he thinks Republicans are playing with fire here because most Republicans, anyway, most people I hope, will see that the border is in a state of crisis," Graham said, adding that Drumpf believes GOP senators that defy him are likely to face a political backlash. "That's his observation, but he's not out there calling people out or anything."

"He believes they are taking a wrecking ball to his life. Clinton said that about us. They're going nuts," Graham said. "'It seems like nobody wants to solve any problems.' He said that a couple times. He said he's surprised. He thought it would be in everybody's interest [to do] infrastructure and stuff like that."

Senate is going to block Trump's national emergency, says McConnell


_"I think what is clear in the Senate is that there will be enough votes to pass the resolution of disapproval, which will then be vetoed by the president and then in all likelihood the veto will be upheld in the House," McConnell said while speaking to reporters in Kentucky.__

How is Trump going to respond to this movement of disapproval?

"Yeah I am," he said, asked if he was concerned about the precedent set for a Democratic president. "That's one reason I argued obviously without success to the president that he not take this route."
