Phoenix—The federal government has stopped paying for English-language courses and legal services at facilities that hold immigrant children around the country, imposing budget cuts it says are necessary at a time when record numbers of unaccompanied children are arriving at the border. The Health and Human Services department notified shelters around the country last week that it was not going to reimburse them for teachers' pay or other costs such as legal services or recreational equipment. The move appears to violate a legal settlement known as the Flores agreement that requires the government to provide education and recreational activities

If it’s not a treaty or a law this is ok. Agreements are broken all the time. Look what’s happening now with China and Mexico they have broken agreements and we are using tariffs to show our displeasure.

These are NOT "immigrant kids", they are illegal aliens. They are here illegally, and they have no right to ANYTHING in this country. They all need to be deported, not catered to.

Nice try, AP. Not “immigrant children”. “Illegal alien children”….. They had turned the detention facilities into camps with education, ESL and recreation. And given them “legal services” to boot. On our taxpayer money. No, no, NOOOOOOO. High time.

FTA: The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the matter, said his employer was scrambling to figure out how it would cover the cost of teachers. The provider hasn't laid anyone off, but worries about children who desperately need to learn English and be intellectually stimulated. Advocates are also worried about the ramifications of cutting recreational activities. Funding cuts may result in physical education coordinators from being let go and in a lack of adults who can supervise children playing outside. "The kids are inside 23 hours, and the hour they spend outside is a real lifeline for them," said J.J. Mulligan, an attorney at the Immigration Law Clinic at University of California, Davis, who has visited and spoken to many of the children at the facilities. "Most of them come from Latin American countries where soccer is king, so the ability to play with their friends really brings them joy in dark circumstances.” We have our own inner city kids and kids who live in poverty elsewhere in our country who would love to have this lovingkindness lavished on them. Courtesy of the fed.

This article is filled with a whole lot of hooey! This, at the end, was the best IMHO "By eliminating English classes and legal aid that are critical to ensuring children successfully navigate the asylum process, the Trump Administration is essentially condemning children to prison and throwing away the key until their imminent deportation," Grijalva, who represents a district on the border, said in a statement. If their deportation is so darned imminent, what are we waiting for!!!

"...children who desperately need to learn English"? I've never seen any illegal alien who even showed an interest in learning English. Also, why is someone such as "Grijalva, who represents a district on the border," advocating for criminal aliens? Seems to me he is representing the illegal aliens, rather than the American citizens in his district. The only reason demoncrats show such an interest in the interests of illegal aliens is because they hope to keep them in our country as future voters, legal or not.

The D.C. Dyke March, which is being billed as an all-inclusive celebration of underrepresented people, is banning Israeli and Jewish Pride flags but allowing Palestinian flags during Friday’s event. The march, which is returning to Washington after a 12-year hiatus, is seeking to be more radical than its previous version, including LGBTQ people of various races, religions, socioeconomic classes and gender identities, organizers told The Washington Post. However, pro-Zionist and “nationalist symbols,” including Israeli and Jewish Pride flags, will not be welcomed at the event, organizers said. Yael Horowitz, a Jewish march organizer, said the ban is

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency is buying 2.2 million diapers to help deliver economic migrants and their young children into Americans’ worksites, schools, and neighborhoods, according to an online contract request.

Albany—Registered sex offenders in New York received $63,000 worth of erectile dysfunction drugs and other sexual treatments courtesy of the state’s publicly funded Medicaid program, according to an audit released Wednesday. Federal rules bar Medicaid coverage of sexual treatments for all recipients, not just sex offenders. Yet state Medicaid officials approved $930,000 in improper payments for the drugs between 2012 and 2018, according to the audit released by state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and first reported by The Associated Press. According to the audit, 47 of those Medicaid recipients were also state sex offenders, who are prohibited from getting Medicaid-covered sexual

Alabama state lawmakers passed a bill that would require child predators to be “chemically castrated” before they leave prison, a report said Tuesday. The bill, which was submitted to Gov. Kay Ivey over the weekend, will require sex offenders convicted of abusing a child under the age of 13 to take drugs that block the production of testosterone and hormones as a condition of parole. If a convict refuses to take the medication, they’ll be considered in violation of parole and immediately taken back into custody, the bill states. They’ll also be required to pay for the medication.

Gibson awarded $5.8 million, David Gibson #3 million, Gibson Bros. $2,274,500. Next Tuesday there will be a separate punitive damages which could be a double award (meaning tripling the $11 million to $33 million). According to Dan, Meredith Raimondo was held liable on the libel but not the other counts. We are still sorting out what that means in terms of damages against her.

I suppose the headline for this entry might need to become a regular Power Line series between now and election day. It was as predictable as the sunrise that Biden’s long-time support of the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funding for elective abortion, would crumple under pressure from the Abortion Absolutists who now control Democratic Party dogma. I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that he crumpled so quickly. Get used to this.

According to new research, millennial dads are less capable than their own dads when it comes to everyday DIY fixes, preferring to rely on professional help instead. A new poll of 1,000 millennial dads and 1,000 baby boomer dads found that when a DIY task needs to be done at home, more than half of millennials prefer to call a professional. And when it comes to emergency “handiness” scenarios, millennial dads fall short in almost every category.
