Humanitarian crisis at U.S. southern border

Southern states along America’s border inundated with influx of illegal migrants and declare, ‘humanitarian crisis’

Since Vice President Kamala Harris won’t visit the border—Texas Gov. Gregg Abbot brought the border to her.

On Thursday morning, two busses carrying dozens of migrants arrived near the vice president’s residence in Washington, D.C.

Many journalists and media outlets followed the busses and caught up with some of the migrants.

One man who entered illegally said about America’s southern border, “it’s open not closed. The border is open. Everybody [illegal migrants] believe that it’s open. It’s open because we enter, we come in free.”

Gov. Abbot, a Republican has been busing migrants to “sanctuary cities” like New York, Chicago and Washington D.C. in an effort to lighten the load that border-towns have been dealing with—calling the influx a true modern-day humanitarian crisis.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has also joined the Texas governor. He chartered two flights and sent migrants to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday afternoon.

Gov. DeSantis said, “we are not a sanctuary state and it’s better to be able to go to the sanctuary jurisdiction—and yes, we will help facilitate that transport for you to be able to go to greener pastures.”

Gov. DeSantis went on to say, “all those people in D.C. and New York were beating their chest when Trump was president saying they were so proud to be sanctuary jurisdiction saying how bad it was to have a secure border.”

He added, “the minute even a small fraction of what those border towns deal with every day is brought to their front door—they all of a sudden go berserk and they’re so upset that this is happening, and it just shows you, you know, they’re virtue signaling is a fraud.”

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre weighed in on the tense situation saying, “they [illegal migrants] deserve better than being left on the streets of D.C. or being left in Martha’s Vineyard they deserve a lot better than that.”

Many non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) are aiding in providing shelter, food and additional resources for the migrants.

Human error sends the New York Stock Exchange tumbling

We’ve all made mistakes at the office from time to time, but spare a thought for one worker who may have single-handedly brought down the New York Stock Exchange with just one tiny error.

The mistake of one employee has wiped billions of dollars off the charts for some of the globe’s largest companies.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

Bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill as politicians say the Biden administration is stonewalling their quest for answers

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
