Migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border swelter
in unforgiving Texas and Arizona heat

Original Article

An abandoned tea kettle with discarded cups and sugar. A long-forgotten blanket draped over a spiny cholla cactus. These are just some of the items volunteers and immigrant rights advocates have found in the unforgiving desert separating the United States from Mexico, where an untold number of people seeking asylum pass through every day. Experts say increased temperatures and a persistent heat wave in the Southwest has exacerbated an already difficult immigration crisis and endangered the lives of migrants who often undertake long and perilous journeys without food, water or sun protection. “People just don’t know what they’re up against,”


Surprise - It's roasting hot in the desert.

Their "long and perilous journey" begins after they have been trucked, trained, flown and boated to the Rio Grande. It is in the best interests of those who ship the migrants here that the United States take care of them. Sorry we didn't have the foresight to place water fountains in the desert for you.

#14, close but actually the legal term is "illegal alien". That is the technically correct term. Smearing actual legal immigrants by calling illegal aliens ANY form if "immigrant" or "migrant" is just a slur on honest people who come here by following the laws. IMO, legal immigrants are welcome. Illegal aliens should be harshly punished, up to including.....well anything, in defending the border.

A clearer picture of the status of homelessness in Los Angeles County came into focus Thursday with the release of the 2023 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, and after some brief hope offered by last year’s results, the downward trend is continuing.

Although sympathetic, the judge said state law required him to evict Williams and his 25-year-old daughter De’mai Williams in April because they owed $8,348 in unpaid rent and fees on their $940-a-month apartment. They have been living in limbo ever since. They moved into a dilapidated Atlanta hotel room with water dripping through the bathroom ceiling, broken furniture and no refrigerator or microwave.

Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed Republicans are recruiting Muslims against transgender people in her Sunday episode of MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki.” Psaki claimed Republicans are using former President Richard Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” method by turning Muslim Americans against transgender people and, in turn, winning their vote. “Now, decades later, the right-wing is reviving that same playbook,” Psaki said. “This time, with Muslim Americans and trans people. Hear me out here, the GOP is trying to recruit Muslim Americans, a community that makes up less than two percent of the U.S. population against another tiny marginalized group of Americans — transgender people.”

I’m a white writing professor, and apparently, that’s a problem. That was the unmistakable message sent to me at Pennsylvania State University—and that’s why I’m suing the school. In November 2020, nearly half a year after George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis, I was subjected to a video titled “White Teachers Are a Problem” for a monthly professional development meeting for writing faculty. The video’s featured speaker, Asao Inoue, is a self-described practitioner of anti-racism. Not an obscure one, either: About a year prior, Inoue gave the Chair’s Address at a prestigious writing studies research conference and declared, “White people can perpetuate white supremacy by being present.Your body perpetuates racism.”

On Sunday, the White House grounds were evacuated after an initially unidentified item was found. A United States Secret Service spokesperson confirmed the event, saying: U.S. Secret Service Uniform Division Officers located an unknown item on the White House complex. As a precaution, the White House grounds were evacuated, and the DC Fire Departments Hazmat team responded. A hazmat team responded to the area of 18th St and Pennsylvania Ave, and the Secret Service blocked roadways around the White House. All roads have re-opened since, according to the spokesperson. D.C. Emergency Medical officials later deemed the item to be “non-hazardous.”

There’s a sense of entitlement among the left’s victim classes—and the more victim boxes they check, the more entitled they are. The same is true when they prove their leftist virtue. This leads too many of them to believe that the law doesn’t apply to them. Such was the case with Kendra Lara, the first black socialist elected to Boston’s City Council. Despite having an unregistered and uninsured car, and a revoked license, she plopped her seven-year-old son in the car and went for a ride that ended with her crashing into a house.

"As fuel taxes plummet, states weigh charging by the mile instead of the tank.” That was the headline of a recent AP story, which should scare freedom-loving citizens everywhere. And you can place the blame squarely on government-subsidized EVs for this terrible new development. The background is that state and federal gasoline taxes aren’t raising “enough” money these days to pay for roadway construction and maintenance. And a big reason for the growing shortfall is the increase in electric vehicles. EVs get massive tax subsidies to convince people to buy them, but their owners don’t pay gasoline taxes,
