More details emerge into kidnapping and search for four Americans in Mexico



Legislation introduced by the GOP to allow the military to take action to fight drug cartels at America’s southern border

More information is being released on the deadly Mexico kidnapping of four Americans.

Two American survivors – LaTavia Washington McGee and Eric Williams are being treated in a United States hospital, as the bodies of the two who were killed – Shaeed Woodard and Zindell Brown are being examined.

The group of friends traveled from South Carolina so one of them – a mother of six – could undergo a medical procedure across the border when they were captured at gunpoint, placed in a vehicle, and taken from the scene by armed men in the border city.

A U.S. official said investigators believe a Mexican cartel likely mistook them for Haitian drug smugglers.

Republicans announced a plan to combat the violent and illegal activity of several drug cartels by designating them terrorist organisations and allowing the military to take action to fight the cartels.

According to statistics, 200 Americans die every day from fentanyl overdose and the crisis is receiving attention in Washington D.C.

On Capitol Hill, emotional testimony was recently given from families who lost loved ones to fentanyl poisoning.

Now, it’s up to the Biden Administration to see if they will secure America’s southern border and if U.S. President Joe Biden will sign the legislation if it’s passed by Congress.

China conducts ‘punishment’ war games near Taiwan



China initiated military ‘punishment’ exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan in response to the newly inaugurated President Lai Ching-te.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
