Gregg Abbott said Thursday that his state would build a wall along the border with Mexico and blamed President Joe Biden’s policies for a humanitarian crisis at the southern border. The Republican governor announced the plan to build the barrier at a border security summit he hosted in Del Rio, a city along Texas’ southwestern border, and said he would release more details next week. As soon as Biden took office in January, he signed an order that paused all construction on the southern border and launched a 60-day review of Trump’s project. At the end of April, the Biden administration announced that it would cancel all border wall construction that was subsidized with redirected military funds. Abbott’s announcement comes days after Vice President Kamala Harris visited Guatemala and Mexico to address the root causes of migration into the U.S. across the southern border.

Two passengers sharing a room on a Caribbean cruise ship tested positive this week for Covid-19, triggering safety precautions that enabled some 600 other passengers to continue eating and gambling on the ship. The passengers who tested positive are asymptomatic and are in isolation, the cruise line said. At the same time, cruise lines have said the detection of positive cases onboard indicates that their health and safety protocols are working. John Roberts, a travel writer, said passengers around him have generally reacted calmly since the captain announced the positive cases. “It suggests, at least, that the amount of virus circulating in their bodies is low enough not to create severe symptoms,” Dr. Pereira said of the two passengers who tested positive.

Greg Abbott promised Thursday to keep building Trump's border wall. The pledge directly contradicts President Joe Biden's decision to cancel construction of the border wall that was given vast funding during the Trump years. He did outline a plan to spend $1 billion on border security, and to set up a task force on the border, per the Tribune. Abbott's promise is another salvo in an ongoing feud with the White House on border security. Biden signed an executive order to halt construction of the border wall on his first day in office.

But when Sawyer tried to call her last month with the good news that she would be allowed into the United States, she couldn’t reach her – Jasibi had been kidnapped again. Biden has filled many key immigration advisory positions with high-profile migrant advocates, including some opponents of the Title 42 border restrictions. Since Biden took office, U.S. border authorities have recorded more than 300,000 expulsions under Title 42. U.S. officials have said the Title 42 border restrictions are partly needed to protect government workers. In recent weeks the United States began admitting asylum seekers whom migrant advocates had identified as being especially vulnerable in Mexico.

With populations the size of small cities packed into close quarters, cruise ships are uniquely vulnerable to viral spread. Ron DeSantis speaks to reporters about the cruise industry at a news conference at PortMiami on April 8. "It has been a year of migraines and kicks in the teeth for the cruise industry. Another, unnamed, cruise industry executive warned the industry newsletter Cruise Week that if the Florida law stands, "it would appear to block cruises from restarting." "We are going to enforce Florida law," DeSantis told reporters Friday, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Roughly a quarter of the breakthrough cases didn’t have symptoms — they were likely detected through routine testing, the CDC found in a report released Tuesday. The majority of the breakthrough infections were women, 63 percent, and a majority of the patients were 40 to 74 years old. On May 1, the CDC stopped regularly reporting on mild breakthrough infections so it could focus on investigating only cases severe enough to cause hospitalization or death. Through genomic sequencing, the CDC found that several variants of concern played a role in most of the breakthrough cases. It’s too soon to know which variants are more likely to result in breakthrough infections, but Dr. Carlos del Rio found the report “reassuring”.

Cruise lines are budgeting for extra costs as they prepare to resume voyages out of the U.S.—their main market—after a more than yearlong break because of the coronavirus pandemic. Cruise operators, which last year reduced costs by idling ships, laying off thousands of employees and curtailing marketing spending, hope to restart U.S. sailings in July. Canada currently bans large cruise ships from sailing on its waters until the end of February 2022. The shutdown of cruise lines during the pandemic has had far-reaching economic consequences for America’s ports. Photo: Royal Caribbean GroupNext year, higher prices, coupled with more bookings, will compensate for the increase in operating costs, Mr. Sykes said.

Live Live Updates: House to Vote on Creating a Commission to Investigate the Capitol Riot The vote is expected to be largely partisan after the Republicans’ leader, Representative Kevin McCarthy, and his team urged his members to vote no. The House is set to vote to create an independent commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. Mr. McCarthy’s opposition to the bill on Tuesday was followed by a statement from his leadership team encouraging a “no” vote. In rejecting the commission, Mr. McCarthy essentially threw one of his key deputies, Representative John Katko of New York, under the bus in favor of shielding Mr. Trump and the party from further scrutiny. “Enough said.” Mr. Katko predicted a “healthy” number of Republicans would still vote for it.

McCarthy Announces Opposition to Jan. 6 Commission

McCarthy Announces Opposition to Jan. 6 Commission The top House Republican said he could not support an inquiry into the attack on the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob because it would not examine unrelated “political violence” associated with the left. Representative Rashida Tlaib urged President Biden to end his support of Israel amid its bombing campaign against Hamas. In rejecting the commission, Mr. McCarthy essentially threw one of his key deputies, Representative John Katko of New York, under the bus in favor of shielding Mr. Trump and the party from further scrutiny. Ms. Cheney has said the commission should have a narrow scope, and that Mr. McCarthy should testify about a phone call with Mr. Trump during the riot.

Covid-19 has disproportionately affected Black and Hispanic people, but they’re getting vaccinated at lower rates than white people, the Kaiser Family Foundation found. Public health authorities have responded by shifting efforts away from mass vaccination sites and focusing on communities with the lowest vaccination rates. This hyperlocal approach, using census-style canvassing operations, education campaigns and mobile vaccination events, hinges on making the shots easy to reach — and helping the hesitant change their minds. She said she would now reassess getting vaccinated. Mecca Shabazz, 26, of Detroit, told canvassers she hadn't gotten vaccinated yet but was considering it.

Five young undocumented migrants, including a 2-year-old and an infant, were by themselves when they were apprehended in South Texas at the U.S.-Mexico border, authorities said Monday. The oldest of the migrants, all of whom were girls from Honduras and Guatemala, was 7, Customs and Border Protection said in a statement. An agent with Customs and Border Patrol spotted the girls near Normandy, about 2½ hours southwest of San Antonio, on Sunday, the agency said. As of Friday, Mayorkas said, 700 children were in Border Patrol custody across the entire U.S.-Mexico border, down from a record of nearly 6,000 in March. The children apprehended Sunday were taken to a processing facility before being transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services, according to Customs and Border Protection.

Norwegian Cruise Line threatened to skip all stops in Florida to avoid potentially unvaccinated customers. Norwegian Cruise Line announced last month that all passengers aboard must be vaccinated. A popular cruise line is threatening to avoid stops in Florida in response to Gov. Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is among several cruise lines that have announced some form of a vaccine requirement. The Associated Press reported that Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Frank Del Rio said on a quarterly earnings call last week that the state's policy could affect the cruise line's routes along the Caribbean islands.

Covid-19: Hopes for ‘Herd Immunity’ Fade as Virus Hurtles Toward Becoming Endemic Dr. Anthony Fauci says indoor mask guidance can ease as vaccinations rise. As hopes for herd immunity fade, the world may need to learn to live with the virus. As rich countries hoard vaccine doses, poorer countries face big logistical challenges to distributing the doses they manage to get and vaccine hesitancy is an issue everywhere. And experts warn the world is getting vaccinated too slowly for there to be much hope of ever eliminating the virus. Washington is one of many states that is reducing the number of vaccine doses it requests from the federal government.

And now for a new and vexing dilemma for states trying to vaccinate their residents against Covid-19: What to do when supply of the vaccine greatly outstrips demand? Several states, long desperate for as many doses as they could get, are now awash in unused doses of Covid vaccines as demand dwindles and supply continues to ramp up. About 112.6 million people, or 34 percent of the population, were fully vaccinated as of Saturday. During the initial rush of vaccine distribution over the winter and into the spring, appointments were coveted and often difficult to find. Of the 329 million doses shipped by the federal government to states, about 257 million have been administered, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

That same month, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings announced a sweeping vaccine mandate. Now, the cruise line may have to boycott sailing out of Florida. Now, Norwegian Cruise Line, which will be requiring its guests and crew to be vaccinated, may have to stop sailing out of the Sunshine State. But ultimately, this executive order could cause the cruise line to stop sailing out of Florida if state law applies. However, Del Rio hopes the cruise line won't have to move its ships out of the state's "very lucrative market": "Everyone wants to operate out of Florida," Del Rio said.

U.S. Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings cruise ship Marina arrives at the Havana bay, Cuba March 9, 2017. The health agency, which recently said it was "committed" to the resumption of passenger operations, on Wednesday issued requirements for starting simulated trips and applying for a COVID-19 conditional sailing certificate to begin sailing with restricted passenger voyages. read moreThe new guidance also includes CDC cruise ship inspections during simulated and restricted passenger voyages. Norwegian Cruise's shares declined 5% after it said the lead time needed to ready its ships could delay the restart. Truist Securities analysts have estimated it takes about 60 days to get a ship ready, noting a July U.S. restart is not a sure thing.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is allowing cruise ships to resume operations this summer, but Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Frank Del Rio says that will be unlikely given the agency's tough requirements. August is also in jeopardy and it's all because of the disjointed guidelines from the CDC," Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Frank Del Rio said on CNBC's Closing Bell. The CDC issued technical guidance for the cruise industry last week and announced it was committed to allowing the industry to resume operations by mid-summer. Del Rio claimed the requirements put on the cruise industry are tougher than those for any other industry. We are dumbfounded, quite frankly, as to why the CDC continues to put forth onerous requirements on our industry," Del Rio said.

The video shows the officer, who has since resigned and has been charged with second-degree manslaughter, shouting, “Taser,” suggesting she mistook one weapon for another. The swift release, which was not required by law, came after a night of particularly intense demonstrations, in which the police fired tear gas and rubber bullets. Before North Carolina passed its body-camera law in 2016, law enforcement agencies in the state operated by their own rules. But the killing of Mr. Brown, who like Ms. Bryant and Mr. Wright was Black, has renewed calls to change the law. “I think it should be a public record,” said Attorney General Josh Stein, a Democrat of North Carolina, referring to the body camera footage.

Wednesday's developments with Giuliani reflect one of the stark realities any White House must deal with. White House officials did not respond to a request for comment on this story. The focus on Giuliani has "absolutely zero impact on Biden's ability to enact his agenda or govern," he said. It's possible that the Justice Department might have called the White House to give them a heads up that they were executing a search warrant that would draw headlines, he said. "But I can't imagine the White House is worried they're not going to get enough attention for a speech that's going to be carried tonight on every network," he said.
