Immigrants could be flown from the busy Rio Grande Valley or Del Rio, Texas, sectors into El Paso, for example, and then sent back across the border from there. Gelernt said migrants are often led to think or come to believe they will be flown to a location in the U.S. where they will be allowed to stay. There have been reports of migrants being walked across the border back into Mexico after a lateral flight, only to find they are in a place they do not know and cannot reenter the U.S. The Biden administration began lateral flights in early March, when the number of migrants stopped crossing the border began to spike. A spokesperson for Customs and Border Protection defended the move saying, “Several Border Patrol sectors have seen a significant increase in encounters in recent months.

In September, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) banned imports from the world's largest producer of crude palm oil over accusations of forced labour. FGV has previously said it was disappointed by the U.S. accusation, despite its steps in past years to show commitment to human rights and upholding labour standards. U.S. Customs had said it would consider a petition to revoke the import ban if FGV could provide credible evidence that it did not use forced labour.

REUTERS/Toby MelvilleJune 17 (Reuters) - British companies have returned more than 1 billion pounds ($1.40 billion) of furlough cash as investors press managements to repay taxpayer funds taken during the COVID-19 pandemic before paying big bonuses, the Financial Times said on Thursday. Companies have repaid 709 million pounds to HM Revenue & Customs that had been claimed under the government's coronavirus job retention scheme, the newspaper said, with a further 319 million returned as over claimed funds taken in error.

Still, Mr. Abbott cast aside the derision in his push to finance construction of a barrier along the border. Since Mr. Biden took office, the number of migrants fleeing poverty and violence in Central and South America has climbed, up from some 74,000 in January. In Texas, Mr. Abbott is not the only politician with grand plans to build a wall. Don Huffines, a former state senator who is challenging Mr. Abbott in next year’s primary elections, has also proposed constructing a barrier, calling it a safety necessity. “The Biden Administration won’t secure our border, so Texas will,” he said in a statement.

Immigration judges, however, are Justice Department employees who are appointed by and answer to the Attorney General, a political appointee. Khan is the president of the judges' union, the National Association of Immigration Judges. This month, dozens of Democrats in Congress signed a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco urging them to rescind Barr's petition. The Biden administration has called for hiring 100 new immigration judges as part of its budget.

"Technically, with the advent of this facial recognition technology, that trope has become a truth." Ingram said he was "taken aback" and "shaken" to learn that facial recognition tools seemed to be involved in his investigation. A new Virginia law restricting facial recognition by local law enforcement will soon put an end to the facial recognition system, the Post later reported. Reining in facial recognition technologyMomentum for facial recognition laws has seemed to wax and wane over the past year and a half.

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.

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.

(Reuters) - A shareholder proposal for Thomson Reuters Corp to review human rights issues emerging from its U.S. government contracts gained increased investor support but failed to win approval at the company’s annual meeting on Wednesday. FILE PHOTO: The Thomson Reuters logo is seen on the company building in Times Square, New York, U.S., January 30, 2018. The shareholder proposal came from a British Columbia labor union and focused on Thomson Reuters work with government agencies including ICE. Wednesday’s resolution called for the company’s board to produce a “human rights risk report” describing potential issues it faces and comparing risk-control procedures against those of other technology companies. Asked about the vote result, Thomson Reuters’ Moran said that “As we review best practices for identifying and mitigating human rights risks, we always welcome feedback from our shareholders and will continue in our dialogue with our investors as part of our shared commitment to human rights.”

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.

Kamala Harris told Guatemalans on Monday that they should not try to cross the US border. "You will be turned back," Harris told a news conference in Guatemala City, in her first overseas trip. At a press conference in Guatemala City on Monday, Harris told Guatemalans thinking of trying to enter the US to stay home, saying: "Do not come." Later Monday, Ocasio-Cortez said of Harris' speech: "This is disappointing to see." At her Monday speech, Harris said: "I want to emphasize that the goal of our work is to help Guatemalans find hope at home.

And I believe if you come to our border you will be turned back." Harris said she would also continue to engage with private companies to help draw investments to the area as well.

Iron ore arrivals have fallen for two straight months as supplies from top producers in Australia and Brazil are typically lower due to seasonal factors such as disruptions due to weather.

(Updates with background, comment)June 7 (Reuters) - China’s copper imports fell 8% in May from the previous month, customs data showed on Monday, as record-high prices further eroded buying interest in the world’s top consumer of the metal. Imports of unwrought copper and copper products fell for a second consecutive month to 445,725 tonnes in May, the General Administration of Customs said. Benchmark London copper prices rose 4.4% last month, hitting an all-time peak of $10,747.50 a tonne on May 10. Continued high prices will have an impact on future imports, said CRU copper analyst He Tianyu, adding that despite the monthly declines, overall import levels are still relatively high. “May imports are still relatively high due to delayed logistics issues from January to April,” said CRU copper analyst He Tianyu.

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.
