Texas Governor Greg Abbott lauded state troopers for erecting a "steel barrier" of vehicles to stop people from crossing into the US. He said Texas is sending a message to those thinking about crossing the border that they may be jailed. Thousands of refugees seeking to enter the US are camped underneath a bridge in Del Rio, Texas. Thousands of Haitian refugees are camped underneath a bridge in Del Rio, Texas — a border town of around 35,000 on the about 150 miles west of San Antonio. It's unclear why so many migrants have amassed at Del Rio so quickly, but misinformation that the border would be easier to cross there may have played a part, reported The New York Times.

LOS ANGELES — George Holliday, the Los Angeles plumber who shot grainy video of four white police officers beating Black motorist Rodney King in 1991, has died of complications of Covid-19, a friend said Monday. Holliday, 61, died Sunday at a Los Angeles hospital, where he had been for more than a month, according to Robert Wollenweber, a longtime friend and former coworker. Holliday was awakened by a traffic stop outside his San Fernando Valley home on the night of March 3, 1991. He went outside to film it with his new video camera, catching the Los Angeles officers punching, kicking and using a stun gun on King, even after he was on the ground. More than 60 people died by shootings or other violence, mostly in South Los Angeles.

REUTERS/Larry DowningWASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - A CIA officer who was traveling with agency director William Burns to India this month reported symptoms consistent with Havana syndrome, CNN and the New York Times reported on Monday. Some 200 U.S. officials and family members have been sickened by Havana syndrome, a mysterious set of ailments that include migraines, nausea, memory lapses and dizziness. A CIA spokesperson said in a statement to Reuters the agency does not comment on specific incidents or officers. Last month, Vice President Kamala Harris delayed her arrival to Hanoi for three hours after the U.S. embassy there said someone had reported a health incident consistent with Havana syndrome. Burns has said there is a "very strong possibility" that the syndrome is intentionally caused and that Russia could be responsible.

Image If authorized by the F.D.A., the vaccine could be a game changer for millions of American families with young children.

Progressive Democrats want the bill to pass, even if it isn’t as large as they would like. They believe, correctly, that a win for Biden is a win for them. Moderate Democrats, however, seem to think that their success depends on their distance from the president and his progressive allies. Moderate and centrist Democrats seem to value a bipartisan process more than they do any particular policy outcome or ideological goal. What is true of both explanations is that they show the extent to which moderate Democrats have made a fetish of bipartisan displays and anti-partisan feeling.

Amazon is lobbying the US government to legalize cannabis, the company announced Tuesday. The company ended pre-employment drug testing earlier this year and said it supports national legalization. Amazon's warehouse employees have a high turnover rate, and national legalization could help with hiring. Amazon first announced support for federal cannabis legalization back in June. Notably, Amazon said on Tuesday that part of the reason it's pushing for legalization is to make hiring a bit easier.

Texas Right to Life, the group behind the state's abortion whistleblower tip site, decried the first two lawsuits filed under the state's new abortion law. Texas Right for Life created a website in August allowing for anyone to submit a tip about people breaking Texas' newly enacted abortion law.

John Seago, the legislative director at Texas Right to Life, echoed Schwartz's statement to the New York Times. Texas Right to Life's abortion whistleblower website has been offline for several weeks after GoDaddy refused to continue hosting it.

Several restaurant owners are finding a solution by paying workers more, according to the NYT. Chef Jason Hammel said adding a higher wage to his benefits package makes it easier to find staff. When the pandemic forced a pause on eating out, Hammel told the New York Times it was also a chance to take a step back and think about how he did business. Dozens of restaurant workers have shared with Insider deep frustrations with long hours, poor management, and abuse from customers, and said that change is long overdue. Matt Murphy, who has worked in restaurants for 25 years, told Insider he welcomes the disruption these labor difficulties bring to the workplace.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., takes reporter questions after the weekly Senate Democratic policy lunch at the U.S. Capitol on Sept. 14, 2021. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday renewed his call for President Joe Biden to forgive $50,000 in student debt for all borrowers though executive action. "With the flick of the pen, President Biden on his own, without any congressional action or approval, could provide millions upon millions of student loan borrowers with a new lease on life," Schumer said at The State of Student Debt Virtual Summit. The remote event includes discussions on the racial inequities of the debt, its mental health consequences and more. For those who view Schumer as a more moderate Democrat, his advocacy for student debt forgiveness through executive action has come as a surprise.

An August 29 drone strike in Kabul killed 10 Afghan civilians, including seven children. Drone strikes conducted by the US, in Afghanistan and beyond, have often resulted in civilian casualties. Such concerns underscore the need for greater transparency from the government when it comes to drone strikes, Brooks said. Drone strikes, which the US has conducted everywhere from Somalia to Yemen, tend to occur in remote areas and far from reporters or watchdogs. The use of drone strikes in counterterrorism operations began under the Bush administration.

Trump pushed false vote-rigging claims for weeks after his campaign had internally discredited them. A November 13 memo on the claims was revealed as part of a lawsuit from a former Dominion employee. The campaign couldn't substantiate claims that the company was part of a global election-rigging conspiracy. Coomer's suit, filed in Colorado, names as defendants individuals affiliated with the Trump campaign, including Powell, conservative commentator Michelle Malkin, Colorado-based activist and online personality Joseph Otlman, the website Gateway pundit, and One America News. While Powell's claims and theories eventually became too much for Trump's own legal team, the Trump campaign didn't formally cut official ties with her until 10 days after Parkinson's staff's memo on November 23, 2020.

Biden spoke before the UN General Assembly Tuesday, where he declared the US was "not at war." But the so-called "War on Terror" continues elsewhere, including troop deployments to Iraq and Syria. "I stand here today — for the first time in 20 years the United States is not at war," Biden declared as he concluded his speech. But Biden's claim ignores ongoing US military engagements abroad, including in Iraq, Syria, and Africa, underscoring the difficulty of closing the chapter in the way Biden envisions. Beyond Iraq and Syria, US forces remained stationed in a variety of foreign countries.

Mark Zuckerberg approved promoting pro-Facebook stories in users' news feeds, NYT reported Tuesday. The proposed "Project Amplify" involved running ads and pushing positive news stories about Facebook. In January, executives proposed an initiative, code-named "Project Amplify," to tweak users' feeds and run ads to show more pro-Facebook news stories and highlight more posts written by the company, according to the Times. In the January meeting, Facebook executives proposed defending the company more aggressively, according to the Times. But the Project Amplify reportedly shocked some in attendance.

Americans love rags-to-riches stories, tales of people who transcended childhood poverty to achieve adult success. What you may not know is that economists have actually quantified the damage from childhood poverty. You see, America’s anti-poverty programs, such as they are — notably food stamps and Medicaid — weren’t rolled out all at once. Food stamps became available in some parts of the country earlier than in other parts; so did Medicaid, which was also expanded in a series of discrete jumps. And a number of researchers, notably Hilary Hoynes and Diane Whitmore Schanzenbach, have used this evidence to show that childhood poverty has huge adverse effects.
