SANTIAGO, Chile—Every night, a commercial airliner full of Haitians arrives in this city’s international airport carrying families who have bid adieu to their poor island nation for a new life here.As the Trump administration aims to curb immigration, one of Latin America’s richest and safest countries has opened its doors to some of the region’s poorest migrants in record numbers. Tens of thousands of Venezuelans have fled their crime-ridden country in recent years for Chile, which has a history of receiving Bolivian, Peruvian and Colombian migrants. But the most dramatic surge has come from Haiti. Last year, almost 105,000 Haitians entered

Ummm, Sebastian Pinera re-won the presidency a couple weeks ago on a pledge to build a wall with Peru to keep the illegals out. When I was in Chile not too long ago, the streets were covered with illegals from Ecuador selling trinkets.

The nation that really has embraced it is Colombia which has taken in hundreds of thousands of brother Venezuelans. They ought to get some credit for that because the Venezuelans are real refugees who will go back when it´s safe again. They aren´t looking for free stuff.

FTA, file under horsehockey:

...She and other supporters of the policy—including officials in outgoing President Michelle Bachelet’s government—say the migrants help shoulder the costs of an aging population that economists say will demand heavier spending on health care and pensions in coming decades. Due to a falling fertility rate and an 82-year life expectancy, the number of working-age Chileans for every retiree is on pace to fall from 7.6 in 2000 to 3.6 in 2030...

Fact: Chile has a fully funded private pension system in place of social security. There is no social security trust fund to run out because no such thing exists. Everyone in Chile saves on their own and takes home a fat pension on retirement. It´s the global gold standard in pension funds and it´s called The Chilean Model.

YOUNTVILLE, Calif. — Three women who devoted their lives to helping traumatized veterans were killed by a patient who had been kicked out of their Northern California treatment program, authorities and a relative of a victim said.A daylong siege at The Pathway Home ended Friday evening with the discovery of four bodies, including the gunman. He was identified as Albert Wong, 36, a former Army rifleman who served a year in Afghanistan in 2011-2012.Investigators were still trying to determine when and why Wong killed two executives and a psychologist at The Pathway Home, a nonprofit post-traumatic stress disorder program at

In January, after a long day at his London office, Christopher Steele, the former spy turned private investigator, was stepping off a commuter train in Farnham, where he lives, when one of his two phones rang. He’d been looking forward to dinner at home with his wife, and perhaps a glass of wine. It had been their dream to live in Farnham, a town in Surrey with a beautiful Georgian high street, where they could afford a house big enough to accommodate their four children, on nearly an acre of land. Steele, who is fifty-three, looked much like the other

Among the nine films nominated for “Best Picture” at this Sunday’s Oscars, two portray the crisis Winston Churchill faced when he became prime minister in May 1940. “Dunkirk” recounted the miraculous evacuation of more than 300,000 soldiers from France, barely ahead of the Nazi forces advancing to annihilate them. “Darkest Hour” portrayed the run-up to Churchill’s historic June 4, 1940 address, which ended with the words that inspired a nation: “We shall never surrender.”

A finger on the lips, the universal gesture of silence, was all her rapist had to do to make sure that she didn’t report him to the authorities. In an article published on Jan. 19, a Colombian journalist, Claudia Morales, described her experience of being raped by a former boss. She declined to mention his name, but suspicions fell on Álvaro Uribe Vélez, Colombia’s former president and a current member of the Senate who was her supervisor in 2003 and 2004. Journalists at The New Yorker and Le Monde were among those who later reported on the speculation over Mr. Uribe, who denied he was the assailant.

A woman close to the Parkland, Florida, school shooter called an FBI tip line in early January to describe a young man with an arsenal of knives and guns who was “going to explode” and said she feared him “getting into a school and just shooting the place up.” “I just want to, you know, get it off my chest in case something does happen and I do believe something’s going to happen,” the woman said, according to a transcript of the January 5 call reviewed by CNN. The FBI admitted last week that it had failed to act on the tip. In a statement then, FBI Director Christopher Wray said that “we have spoken with victims and

It is both dismal and amusing to see the rationalizations of the diehard Kremlin collusionists after Robert Mueller’s spurious indictment of the 13 Russians who will never encounter the vagaries of United States justice. The charge of conspiring against the United States is nonsense, and the whole ambiance of the investigation now is that of a phantom consolation prize for the absence of a crime, a victim, or a culprit, all amplified by the hollow sanctimony of an official America that has meddled countless times in the elections of other countries (usually for the general good of the Western alliance).

Last week Shaun White won a historic third career gold medal in the snowboarding halfpipe at the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The celebration was tempered by a sexual-harassment lawsuit filed against him by a former bandmate, Lena Zawaideh, which was settled last year.In USA Today, Christine Brennan wrote that White and other men at the Olympics have “flown under the radar of ‘Me Too,’?” while Josh Levin at Slate scolded NBC for looking the other way.

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

Fox News is in sleazy Watters yet again. The network’s prominent host Jesse Watters — who dined on Monday with President Trump — is in the midst of divorce due to an affair with a 25-year-old associate producer. Watters’ wife, Noelle Watters, filed for divorce in October. The couple has twin girls. Sources said the 39-year-old host informed the network of his adulterous relationship with Emma DiGiovine shortly after Noelle filed divorce papers. DiGiovine was transferred to “The Ingraham Angle.” DiGiovine and Watters are still dating, sources said. A woman at DiGiovine’s home in Cranford, N.J., declined to comment.

And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere,” Warren said of her ancestry on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The Massachusetts Democrat has been under increased pressure to provide evidence of ?her ?Native American roots, with President Trump repeatedly mocking her as “Pocahontas” as recently as Saturday.

The Democrats are trying to make something out of Donald Trump’s alleged dalliance, twelve years ago, with porn performer Stormy Daniels. I wrote about it here. Frankly, I don’t think anyone cares. But the story is interesting because it raises questions about what, in our era, constitutes a scandal. Trump’s long-ago romps with Daniels–assuming the stories are true–don’t qualify. There is one person, of course, who has a right to be outraged and probably is, but Melania doesn’t work for the Washington Post or the New York Times, and what she makes of the story is none of our business.

So Barack Obama is in talks with Netflix, The New York Times reports, “to produce a series of high-profile shows that will provide him a global platform after his departure” from relevance last year. High profile? Global platform?

Oakland coffee shop Hasta Muerte Coffee refuses to serve police due to a concern for the “safety of customers.” The policy came to light after NBC Bay Area reported the coffee shop refused to serve an officer in uniform on February 16. KCRA reports that the store took to social media, saying, “We have a policy of asking police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.” An Instagram post by Hasta Muerte provides an overview of the store’s position, saying in part: We know in our experience working on campaigns against police brutality that

The last NYPD cops assigned full-time to New York City public schools are being moved out — despite nationwide calls for heightened security in the wake of last month’s Florida shootings. As the nation mourned the 17 victims of the school massacre at Parkland, Fla., the NYPD was removing Sgt.

Parents, teachers and students are livid over the beloved cop’s departure. “My colleagues think it’s outrageous — and really stupid,” teacher Arthur Goldstein said. “We’re not

Council and voluntary sector staff in the city will be “encouraged” to wear the badges, which include messages such as “My pronouns are she/her/hers” and “My pronouns are they/their/theirs” when they are distributed in the week leading up to ‘Trans Day of Visibility’ on March 31.
