“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

ATHENS (Reuters) - Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on Sunday renewed his call for debt mutualisation, saying it will help Europe better compete with other countries around the world. However, Europe still needs to work to deepen its fiscal integration through a common banking and capital markets union. “A European fund and the full mutualisation of debt are important issues so that we make a leap of high quality in the future of the EU,” Sanchez said ahead of an official visit to Athens. However, Germany, among other nations, has long been opposed to issuing common debt with other European nations, arguing that it would stop individual countries from pursuing structural reforms and balancing their budgets. Sanchez hoped that the so-called “green pass” will be ready ahead of the summer holiday season.

Wright appeared likely to face another Republican in the expected runoff in the Dallas-Fort Worth suburbs, a longtime Republican-held district. A runoff between the top two vote-getters is required since no candidate received a majority in the first round. The election was the first test of the Texas electorate since President Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory. The national Democratic Party did not back any candidate in the contest, although Democrats have made gains in the north Texas district in recent years. Jones said Trump’s endorsement, coming just a few days before the election, appeared to have helped Wright.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -A Texas Republican backed by former President Donald Trump has advanced to a runoff election to fill a U.S. House of Representatives vacancy left by the death of her husband, while Democrats were shut out of the contest. Wright was headed to a runoff against another Republican in the Dallas-Fort Worth suburbs, a longtime Republican-held district. Democrats had hoped to pick up the seat to expand their slim House majority. The election was the first test of the Texas electorate since President Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory. Trump defeated Biden in Texas, a state where Democrats hope to make inroads.

But echoing a sentiment held by many Trump supporters, Emerson expressed frustration with what he called the hypocrisy of those who condemned the riots but turned a blind eye to violence at Black Lives Matter protests last summer. They blamed the violence on left wing protesters - without any evidence - and expressed little hope that the deeply divided country would unify anytime soon. On Thursday, as the threat of a second impeachment loomed, Trump denounced the violence and committed to a transition of power. Several administration officials have resigned but Trump’s fans appeared to care little about what politicians - even Republicans - had to say in Washington. She said Trump supporters were tired of being wrongly labeled as ignorant, violent or racist.

The interior ministry said it and the foreign ministry would work out how to deal with migrants left inside the country by Trump’s so-called Remain in Mexico policy after U.S. President-elect Joe Biden pledged to dismantle the program. “We’re not the cause of the problem, but we reiterate our willingness to be part of the solution,” she said. Under Remain in Mexico, migrants with U.S. asylum claims have stayed in Mexico while their requests are processed. “We will formulate a plan for the migrants still in Mexico with this program,” Sanchez said, without elaborating. Mexico will sit on the Security Council from 2021 to 2022.

Spain claims sovereignty over the port at the mouth of the Mediterranean that it ceded to Britain in 1713 after a war. But it has agreed to put the issue of sovereignty to one side to focus on the opportunity to reach a side deal with Britain to avoid having a hard EU border in southern Spain after Brexit. About 15,000 people commute daily from Spain to Gibraltar, which has a population of 32,000. El Pais newspaper said earlier Spain and Gibraltar were nearing such an agreement that would mean that from Jan. 1 there would be border controls for British citizens travelling to Gibraltar, but Spaniards and Gibraltarians could freely cross the land border. In a 2002 referendum, 99% of Gibraltarians rejected any idea of Britain sharing sovereignty with Spain.

REUTERS/Nacho DoceMADRID (Reuters) -Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Wednesday that his government was considering limiting Christmas celebrations to six people in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus. “This is not a number we have pulled out of nowhere,” Sanchez told a news conference with his Italian counterpart Giuseppe Conte in Mallorca. Some regional health chiefs, including in Catalonia and Madrid, are advocating for a less stringent limit of 10 people for holiday gatherings. While the rate of infection in Spain has slowed in the past month, its overall tally of nearly 1.6 million cases is the second highest in western Europe after France. On Tuesday, the death toll rose by 537 to 43,668, marking the highest daily increase of the pandemic’s second wave.

German Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer last week rejected French President Emmanuel Macron’s call for an independent European defence strategy, saying Europe would continue to rely on the United States and the NATO military alliance for security for decades to come. Sanchez said both the European Union and the United States were stronger together, and the election of Joe Biden as the next U.S. president was a positive development for their relationship. “We have a great opportunity after the U.S. elections to reestablish a positive agenda with the United States,” he said. I am confident we will reach an agreement before the end of the year,” he said.
