Texas Governor Greg Abbott speaking at a press conference at the Texas State Capitol in Austin on May 18, 2020. The U.S. Justice Department on Friday sued Texas and its governor, Greg Abbott, to block a state executive order aimed at restricting the travel of undocumented migrants who could potentially transmit Covid-19. The complaint states that Abbott's executive order, issued Wednesday, interferes with the federal government's ability to lawfully release and transport migrants, adding it violates intergovernmental immunity. The lawsuit comes a day after Attorney General Merrick Garland threatened to pursue "legal remedies" if Abbott failed to rescind the executive order. In response, Abbott said in a statement Thursday he would fight off any effort from the Justice Department to block the executive order.

Some federal agencies offer paid internships, but many others, including the Labor Department, don't. The study also found that 10.2 percent of Latinos are in unpaid internships. The study also found that among those who have paid internships, 79 percent are non-Hispanic white students, while just 8 percent are Latinos. Vera said in his letter that current laws extend only to those categorized as “employees” under Labor Department definitions. Aside from lobbying for more paid internships in the White House and federal agencies, it's expanding its efforts on the state level and to the nonprofit sector.

Electric vehicles are a priority for the world's economic powerhouses to help meet their climate goals. Electric vehicles are widely viewed as a crucial element of plans to slow down the heating of the planet. China currently accounts for 75% of all EV battery production globally, according to data research firm Benchmark Mineral Intelligence. Posawatz has worked with electric vehicles for decades having first developed the Chevrolet Volt, an electric saloon that made its debut in 2007. The administration also hopes the construction of a domestic battery supply chain will alleviate the worries around the disruption of millions of jobs.

Closing the employment gaps for race, gender, and education could mean the US reaches 190 million workers by 2031, or about 28 million more jobs than CBO's projections, the authors found. "Employment gaps by age, education, and especially race are strongly responsive to current labor market conditions, as reflected in the unemployment rate." The unemployment rate for Black workers is 9.2% and 5.2% for white workers as of June 2021. Historically, this includes Black Americans, women, and less educated workers. Mason notes we also need to improve childcare to get women back in the labor market, as care disproportionately falls on women.

Fauci said he supports vaccine mandates at the local level, like at schools and businesses. Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday he believes there should be more COVID-19 vaccine mandates at the local level, though he continues to say the federal government will not mandate them. Fauci, the longtime director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was speaking on CNN's State of the Union when Jake Tapper asked him if he supports local vaccine mandates at places like schools and businesses. "I do believe at the local level there should be more mandates," Fauci said. He predicted that once they are formally approved, there may be more local mandates.

Social media posts which state that U.S. taxpayers pay a percentage of their taxes to the Queen of England and that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is not actually an agency of the Federal government are false. The text in the posts read: “Americans pay a percentage of their taxes to the Queen of England via the IRS. The IRS is a bureau of the Department of Treasury, which is an executive agency of the United States. “The IRS is an agency of the Treasury Department and we work on behalf of United States taxpayers – no one else,” Lemons said. U.S. taxpayers do not pay taxes to the Queen of England and the Internal Revenue Service is not an agency of the International Monetary Fund.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on Monday said that federal laws against the sale and cultivation of marijuana are inconsistent, making a national prohibition unnecessary. The court's decision not to hear a new case related to tax deductions claimed by a Colorado medical marijuana dispensary prompted Thomas to issue a statement that more broadly addressed federal marijuana laws. The IRS cracks down on marijuana businesses, such as the Colorado medical marijuana dispensary, by pursuing investigations on their tax deductions. The justice also noted a consequence of federal marijuana prohibition, stating that most marijuana businesses fully operate in cash because of restrictions that prevent federally-backed financial institutions from providing bank services to marijuana businesses. All of these issues regarding federal marijuana laws, Thomas argues, threaten the principles of federalism.

Fear has invaded the Mexican border city of Reynosa after gunmen in vehicles killed 14 people, including taxi drivers, workers and a nursing student, and security forces responded with operations that left four suspects dead. While this city across the border from McAllen, Texas is used to cartel violence as a key trafficking point, the 14 victims in Saturday's attacks appeared to be what Tamaulipas Gov. Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca called “innocent citizens” rather than members of one gang killed by a rival. Local businessman Misael Chavarria Garza said many businesses closed early Saturday after the attacks and people were very scared as helicopters flew overhead. One former governor, Tomás Yarrington, was extradited to the United States from Italy in 2018 on drug trafficking charges.

Lagos, Nigeria (CNN) Several students and three teachers were abducted Thursday by armed men from a federal college in Nigeria's north-western Kebbi State, State Governor Abubakar Bagudu told CNN. According to Governor Bagudu, the gunmen — locally known as bandits — raided the co-educational Federal Government College in Kebbi's Birnin Yauri district on Thursday, killing a policeman in the attack. The definitive number of abducted students has proven difficult to establish, Bagudu added, noting that some concerned parents had since withdrawn their children from school following the attack. We don't know how many students were taken," Bagudu told CNN. "Many parents have taken their children out of school in a panic and we are hesitant to say how many are missing because some may have gone home."

Biden's administration restored $929 million in grant funding for California's high-speed rail. Trump's administration cancelled the funding after he called the rail project "a 'green' disaster!" President Joe Biden's administration has restored about $929 million in funding for the California high-speed rail project, reversing a cancellation by President Donald Trump's administration. A month later, Biden introduced a sweeping infrastructure proposal with about $80 billion for upgrades to Amtrak and other federal and state rail services, although high-speed rail projects were notably absent. Newsom and Trump traded tweets about high-speed rail in 2019, before the Trump administration cancelled the $929 million.

Without federal investments that spur growth of good jobs, there simply are not enough jobs that draw on the potential of these workers. The challenges in returning to work, however, may be symptomatic of a deeper problem: there may be jobs, but there aren't enough good jobs. But neither of those goals will be met unless the Federal government invests in creating infrastructure and green jobs to generate more good jobs and the private sector engages as well. However, that falls far short of the 5.8 million jobs we need to help qualified workers, particularly women, Black, and Latinx workers, who previously had low-wage jobs move up the economic ladder. Research shows this type of investment could catalyze almost 2.7 million jobs over the next ten years.

The Cyber Security ETF (HACK) is up more than 30 percent in the last year. "For an individual stock-picker who would like to invest in cybersecurity, Palo Alto is an ideal choice," says Jenny Harrington, the CEO of Gilman Hill Asset Management. "This is an area where scale counts and Palo Alto is an industry leader that is rapidly consolidating in a fragmented market. "This recent hack is concerning but unfortunately we will see more of the same in the future. Palo Alto is one of the incumbents in the industry and I believe will play a meaningful role in this fight going forward."

Federal jobs are available everywhere from Omaha, Nebraska, to Bangkok, Thailand, according to an Insider survey of the government hiring website usajobs.gov. More than 20,000 federal jobs are currently accepting applications. The government's hiring process is often a slog and its jobs website clunky. That's because President Joe Biden is trying to make public service appealing again after many federal workers felt demoralized under the Trump administration. Here are some of the coolest jobs available right now, according to a review by the Partnership for Public Service and Insider:

Ted Cruz, Mike Braun, and Cynthia Lummis introduced a bill banning federal vaccine passports. At least 10 US states already have bills or executive orders banning vaccine passports. Vaccine passports are becoming more common, as US tourists to the EU will be required to prove they are vaccinated. Three Republican senators have introduced a bill to ban the federal government from establishing COVID-19 vaccine passports, following in the footsteps of at least 10 GOP-led states. Vaccine passports are becoming increasingly common internationally.

The Karlsruhe judges said the bank had demonstrated that the 2.4 trillion euro ($2.9 trillion) Public Sector Purchase Programme (PSPP), launched in 2015 to fight off deflation, was appropriate. They have argued the ECB schemes jeopardise German taxpayers’ money and break a ban, enshrined in EU treaties, on the central bank financing governments. Since that ruling, the ECB has provided a series of documents to the German government and parliament, which accepted its arguments. Another German ECB critic, Berlin finance professor Markus Kerber, has brought a separate complaint against the ECB’s Pandemic Emergency Purchase Program (PEPP), saying the 1.85 trillion euro scheme launched last year in response to the outbreak broke a ban on financing governments.

The bill would create a commission to study slavery and discrimination in the United States and potential reparations proposals for restitution. But as the federal government denied land and resources to formerly enslaved people, it created new pathways for land ownership for white Americans. Warren K. Leffler / Library of CongressExperts disagree on what reparations should look likeIn recent years, reparations have often been discussed alongside the racial wealth gap, or the difference between wealth held by white Americans compared to that of other races. 40 is that it is not at all clear that it provides us with a direction towards eliminating the racial wealth gap,” Darity said. Critics say slavery happened too long ago and thus the harms are too old to be repaired.

For the first time, the United States will require all software purchased by the federal government to meet, within six months, a series of new cybersecurity standards. The order also establishes an incident review board, much like the teams that investigate airline accidents, to learn lessons from major hacking episodes. The new order also requires all federal agencies to encrypt data, whether it is in storage or while it is being transmitted — two very different challenges. When China stole 21.5 million files about federal employees and contractors holding security clearances, none of the files were encrypted, meaning they could be easily read. Previous efforts to mandate minimum standards on software have failed to get through Congress, notably in a major showdown nine years ago.

The Small Business Administration announced Friday that it will reopen an application portal on Saturday for struggling event venues, movie theaters and other performance groups to apply for Covid relief grants. The federal agency temporarily suspended the program, known as the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant, due to technical glitches during its launch on April 8. More than $16.2 billion has been allocated to help keep entertainment venues, museums and performing arts organizations in business until in-person events can resume safely. "With venue operators in danger of closing, every day that passes by is a day that these businesses cannot afford," said Carson. "We remain dedicated to delivering emergency aid as quickly as possible and will begin reviewing the applications on Saturday as they are submitted."

GOP strategist and Trump ally Roger Stone and his wife were sued by the federal government for $2 million in unpaid taxes. Former GOP strategist Roger Stone was sued Friday by the federal government for nearly $2 million in unpaid taxes , interest, and penalties. The complaint was filed Friday against Stone and his wife Nydia Stone to collect unpaid federal income tax liabilities for nearly $1.6 million between the years 2007 through 2011, as well as more than $400,000 in 2018, according to court documents. According to the complaint, the Stones used a company they owned called Drake Ventures to pay their federal taxes. "I have continued to eke out a living through my company Drake Ventures."

MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somalia’s president has signed a disputed law extending his mandate for two years, the state news agency reported, setting the Horn of Africa nation on a collision course with donors who strongly oppose the move. Somalia's President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo addresses lawmakers after winning the vote at the airport in Somalia's capital Mogadishu, February 8, 2017. President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed’s four-year term expired in February and his successor was meant to be chosen by a new crop of legislators. “(This) resolution undermines peace, security, and stability in Somalia and beyond,” international partners including the United Nations said in a joint statement. Other major backers including the United States also bemoaned the decision.
