Since El Salvador voted to adopt bitcoin as legal tender, a slew of politicians have said they want to follow suit. "Other countries will follow El Salvador's lead for two main reasons, making bitcoin legal tender will attract Bitcoin entrepreneurs and ease the burden of sending money internationally." Indeed, since El Salvador's president Nayib Bukele first announced the bitcoin bill, a slew of other emerging markets politicians have said that their own countries should follow suit. In El Salvador, a whole town was already running on crypto - El Zonte, also known as 'Bitcoin Beach'. And the World Bank rejected El Salvador's request to help with the implementation of bitcoin over environmental concerns linked to crypto mining.

REUTERS/Leah Millis(Reuters) - The National Republican Congressional Committee will begin to accept donations in cryptocurrency, it said on Thursday. The organization said it was the first national party committee to take contributions via cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, which it said would help it support Republican candidates in next year’s midterm elections. The NRCC said it would accept cryptocurrency using Bitpay, which provides bitcoin and cryptocurrency payment services. The Federal Election Committee in 2014 approved a $100 value for transfers of actual cryptocurrency.

Central American leaders such as Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele are already rejecting U.S. criticism of their record on democracy and human rights. Nicaragua was also uncowed by the U.S. sanctions last week on four members of the ruling clique. FAMILY RIVALRYOrtega first took power in Nicaragua after the 1979 overthrow of U.S.-backed right-wing dictator Anastasio Somoza by the Sandinista rebels. The backlash prompted the United States to blacklist top Nicaraguan officials, including Murillo. Washington should coordinate an international response to show Nicaragua that it would lose international financing if the candidates were not released, he said.

WASHINGTON, June 17 (Reuters) - The United States on Thursday banned Guatemalan lawmaker Boris España Cáceres and his immediate family from entering the U.S. due to "his involvement in significant corruption," the State Department said. The sanctions stem from alleged bribery and "interfering with public processes" in ways that undermined the stability of Guatemala's democratic government, State Department spokesperson Ned Price said in a statement. In addition, Biden issued a memorandum earlier this month that called on agencies to take steps to combat corruption worldwide. The visa sanctions announced on Thursday come after the State Department released a report in May naming officials from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador who were "credibly alleged" to be corrupt. read moreThe list, released by the office of U.S. Representative Norma Torres, prompted El Salvador President Nayib Bukele to praise China, and El Salvador's congress to ratify a 2019 cooperation agreement with that country.

Mr. Garland vacated a decision made in 2018 by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions that had argued that asylum claims had incorrectly expanded to include victims of “private violence,” like domestic violence or gangs. People fleeing persecution on account of their membership in a “particular social group” can seek asylum in the United States, and previous administrations have considered those fleeing domestic abuse and gang violence to fall under that definition. In vacating the Trump administration’s stance, Mr. Garland said that the Justice Department should follow the earlier precedent. His decision came in a closely watched case known as A-B for the initials of the woman seeking asylum. That assessment qualified the woman for asylum, but Mr.

A Global First: Bitcoin as National Currency

El Salvador beat them all to the punch by passing a law that makes bitcoin legal tender for all debts public and private. Most proposed central-bank digital currencies would be tightly controlled by governments. One huge concern about granting the Fed this much power is the distinct possibility of weaponizing the money supply. El Salvador, which doesn’t have its own currency, is avoiding this risk by making bitcoin legal tender alongside the U.S. dollar. It also permits bitcoin to be used to pay taxes and exempts bitcoin transactions themselves from capital-gains taxation.

WASHINGTON—The Biden administration said it is expanding a program designed to let children and teenagers from Central America come to the U.S. legally, as the government continues to grapple with large numbers of migrant children crossing the southern border illegally. That would allow them to board flights to the U.S. with government permission. The Central American Minors program, started by the Obama administration in 2014, applies to people under the age of 21 coming from the so-called Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, which over the past decade have sent a majority of asylum-seeking migrants to the U.S.-Mexico border. The Obama administration created the program in response to the first wave of unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally, to offer them a safer alternative to reach the U.S.Former President Donald Trump terminated the program in 2017, saying it was an immigration pathway that had been created without congressional approval. President Biden restarted it March 10.

Amundi's Marco Pirondini told Insider he thinks regulation is coming for the crypto space. He said assets like bitcoin and etherum wouldn't play a bigger role in 10 years than they do today. "The world of these digital currencies that live outside the rule I think is coming to an end," he said. Luke Lloyd, an investment strategist at Strategic Wealth Partners, told Insider in February that while he thinks regulation around bitcoin specifically would spook investors in the near-term, it would be a positive longer-term. China has taken a hardline stance, banning banks from conducting business with bitcoin, silencing bitcoin social media influencers, and stopping bitcoin mining.

He shares why he thinks El Salvador's acceptance of bitcoin as legal tender is "extremely powerful." While big-name investors and influential individuals tend to move the markets, Betancourt believes that there have been some positive developments flying under the radar in the crypto market that could really reboot the bull market . "But we continue to be bullish, we still think that we are in a bull market and there's a good chance that we'll see all-time highs again before the end of the year."

The El Salvadoran beach town of El Zonte is visibly poor, with dirt roads and a faulty drainage system. President Nayib Bukele cited Bitcoin Beach as inspiration for his push to adopt the cryptocurrency nationally. She rarely uses bitcoin, she says, because like many in the town, her battered smartphone struggles with the payments app. Then there is the internet connection, notoriously patchy in rural places like El Zonte, which is 49 km (30 mi) southwest of San Salvador, the capital. Despite the barebones infrastructure, three young Salvadorans in 2019 began the Bitcoin Beach project backed by Californian Michael Peterson, after an "anonymous donation" of bitcoin.

The suspension applies to all dogs, including puppies, emotional support dogs, and dogs that traveled out of the United States and returning from high-risk countries. She cited a growing number of canine rabies cases in Haiti and Peru as a result of dog vaccination cutbacks. The CDC has previously estimated 1.06 million dogs are imported into the United States annually. The CDC estimates the import ban, which it expects to last a year, will affect about 6% of dogs imported.

"We have been clear at the BIS that we don't see bitcoin as having passed the test of being a means of payments.
