Immigration lawyers are overburdened as they deal with 1.3 million backlogged cases. The country's 500 immigration judges feel overburdened and under pressure to deport as more than 1.3 million cases have been backlogged at the end of the last administration and crossings into the country keep rising, NBC News reported. While federal trial judges are appointed for life, making it easier to make independent decisions, immigration judges are appointed and answer to the attorney general. "We are in the legal fight for our life to ensure that our decisional independence is valued and maintained," Judge Amiena Khan told NBC. "We should not be used as a tool of law enforcement," Judge Dana Leigh Marks told NBC.

But it’s not just the climate that’s changed in the last few years; it’s also the political climate. That’s why the International Energy Agency said last month that new fossil fuel investment must end this year. But the Biden administration also has to take a hard look at any new infrastructure, from liquefied natural gas export terminals on the Oregon coast to gas compressor stations in suburban Boston. But the polls make clear that the people who elected Mr. Biden expect action on the climate. He can’t go backward; the climate test of 2015 means that Line 3 in 2021 is an anachronism that must be blocked.

“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.

For a White House team that came into office promising to be more compassionate and effective on immigration policy, there is tremendous political risk in failing on either front. And the White House has been slow to respond to a major spike in migration. "The truth of the matter is: Nothing has changed," Biden said from the East Room of the White House on March 25. I'd be happy to offer this legislation to Vice President Harris or President Biden as a solution to the crisis on our southern border." “By handing Vice President Harris the assignment of dealing with what amounts to an intractable problem, Biden is certainly complicating her future.

California D.A. Seeks Federal Agencies’ Information on San Jose Shooter

A California district attorney said federal authorities hadn’t provided any information they gathered five years ago about the man who killed nine people at his San Jose workplace May 26, calling the lack of intelligence sharing an issue of public safety. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials detained Samuel Cassidy in 2016 as he was returning to the U.S. from the Philippines, finding books on terrorism and notes on his hatred for his workplace, according to an internal Department of Homeland Security memo written in the hours after the shooting. Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen says neither CBP nor the Department of Homeland Security had given local authorities investigating the shooting any information they have in hand about Cassidy, who fatally shot himself after killing nine fellow employees of the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. It was deadliest mass shooting in Bay Area history“It seems like this was a missed opportunity to inform local law enforcement,” said Mr. Rosen, who added that while the CBP’s contact with Cassidy occurred five years ago, it appeared to relate to “what this person ultimately did.”Had CBP informed local authorities about the 2016 stop before the shooting, local officials might have been able to take measures to intervene with Cassidy and prevent the killings, perhaps through a gun-violence restraining order, Mr. Rosen said. He added that while he understood that the agency might have its reasons for not sharing the information, it hasn’t stated them.

Indian Health Service, the federal agency that provides public health services to federally recognized Native American tribes and the Alaska Native population, delivered Covid-19 vaccines to more than 350 tribal health programs and urban Indian organizations. For the Blackfeet Nation, the response was overwhelmingly positive: By early March, more than half of residents received at least one dose of a vaccine. Last year, the Blackfeet Nation was in desperate need of personal protective equipment amid a nationwide shortage, and the Blackfoot Confederacy in Canada, which had ample supply, stepped up. A partnership among the various tribes, Canada's health departments and U.S. Customs and Border Protection helped get more than 1,300 Canadians vaccinated. Canadians drive through the Piegan-Carway border to receive Covid-19 vaccination shots from the Blackfeet tribe near Babb, Mont., on April 29.

The Ford logo is seen at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, U.S., January 15, 2019. REUTERS/Brendan McDermidFord Motor Co (F.N) said Thursday it could face up to $1.3 billion in penalties in a long-running dispute over import duties paid on Ford Transit Connect vehicles. U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is now seeking additional duties of $181 million and is considering seeking a monetary penalty of "as much as $652 million to $1.3 billion," Ford said. The Justice Department said Ford "designed, marketed, sold, and delivered the van to consumers exclusively as a two-person cargo van. Ford argued the rear passenger seat met all federal safety standards, had seat belts for every seating position, and anchors for the rear seats and seat belts and were "street-legal passenger vehicles."

U.S. to bring in more migrants forced to wait in Mexico under Trump program
  + stars: | 2021-05-19 | by ( Ted Hesson | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.95   time to read: +2 min
The United States is working to reopen some cases of non-Mexican asylum seekers who were forced to wait in Mexico under the administration of former President Donald Trump, a top U.S. border official said on Wednesday. Biden, a Democrat who took office on Jan. 20, moved to wind down the Trump program in February as part of a broader effort to undo his Republican predecessor's restrictive policies. Nearly 28,000 migrants were ordered deported due to a failure to appear in court since the MPP program began in 2019, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Some Republicans have blamed an increase in migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months in part on Biden's decision to end the MPP program. Pro-immigrant advocates and Democrats praised the move, saying the Trump program denied migrants the ability to seek asylum in the United States.

He told Insider that federal law-enforcement agencies could also continuously monitor officers' "finances, irregular travel patterns, or if they have other legal problems." But federal law-enforcement officers that do not work in a "national security position" as defined are not obligated to undergo this recurring investigative process.

(CNN) US Customs and Border Protection officers in Ohio have seized 36,000 headphones that resembled Apple AirPods. CBP in Cincinnati found that the headphones, which arrived in three shipments from China, were in violation of "trademark and copyright codes," CBP said in a news release Friday. The wireless headphones violated trademarks that "protected Apple configuration" recorded with CBP, the release said. The headphones, inspected by CBP on May 6, came in boxes labeled "Elite Pods," and included headphones and a case that looked similar to real AirPods. The three shipments were headed toward Dayton, Kentucky, and were seized on May 11 and 13, the release said.

The interviews provide an anecdotal snapshot of the mood within border patrol and, as such, do not represent the views of all agents. “It is his fault.”The 97-year-old border patrol agency has been whipsawed by policy changes under Republican and Democratic administrations that have required them to frequently modify their approach to migrants they encounter at the border. Rosemarie Pepperdine, a border patrol agent working in Casa Grande, Arizona, is one of those who said she was considering taking early retirement. The border patrol wanted to use a police station to set up a command post to aid the search. But that was rejected by police, who according to Hall felt that was unnecessary because the border patrol had their own facilities.

"A few Western countries and anti-China forces went all out to hype up the so-called 'forced labor' in Xinjiang's cotton-growing industry. The report was compiled with the help of "forced labor and supply chain experts fluent in Chinese, Uyghur and English." Tainted supply chainsOne company, Xinjiang Hoshine Silicon Industry, is presented as a "case study" in the report for the trickle-down effect of alleged forced labor on the entire solar panel supply chain. The accelerating adoption of solar raises the stakes for ensuring that the industry's supply chain does not involve forced labor. Still, Xinjiang has become deeply intertwined with the global solar supply chain and fully cutting it out of the system would be difficult.

Federal prosecutors are seeking the forfeiture of an ancient Roman sculpture that was on its way to Kim Kardashian when it was seized at Los Angeles' port five years ago. The broker provided a form to the CBP that listed the consignee, or buyer, and importer as "Kim Kardashian dba Noel Roberts Trust." When the shipment arrived, customs officials were concerned that it was "possibly protected cultural property from Italy," according to the filing. "Based on the information and scientific aspects the archaeologist provided, the archaeologist opined that the defendant statue was looted, smuggled and illegally exported from Italy," it says. The Italian archaeologist determined that the statue is of "classical Peplophoros style," which represents a copy of an original Greek sculpture, the filing says.

On April 8, Puerto Rico tallied a record cocaine haul, according to the Associated Press. According to the DEA, cocaine shipments enter Puerto Rico almost entirely by sea.
