Mar 14, 2020; Houston, Texas, USA; A sign at BBVA Stadium announces a team store closing after postponement of a match between the Seattle Sounders and the Houston Dynamo. Administration officials said they would continue to fight to maintain the program. Under a preliminary injunction issued by the court in Texas, the SBA must keep approving funds for non-priority applicants, but cannot hand out money to those designated as "priority" candidates until the case is settled. The filing submitted Friday made clear that the 2,965 applicants were fully approved for the funds from May 26 to May 28, shortly before the injunction was entered on the docket. SBA said it would not pay the claims, given the injunction.

A federal judge in Wisconsin has ordered a temporary halt to a $4 billion federal loan relief program aimed at addressing longstanding inequities for farmers of color after a legal challenge by white farmers who argue the policy discriminates against them. He issued a temporary restraining order blocking the Department of Agriculture from proceeding with the loan relief payments. A department spokesman, Matt Herrick, told NBC News, "We respectfully disagree with this temporary order and USDA will continue to forcefully defend our ability to carry out this act of Congress and deliver debt relief to socially disadvantaged borrowers. “For generations, socially disadvantaged farmers have struggled to fully succeed due to systemic discrimination and a cycle of debt,” Vilsack said. The reverse-discrimination argument has been embraced by allies of former President Donald Trump, including his former senior adviser Stephen Miller.

The fight is centered on which farmers get taxpayer help at a time when Biden has pledged to focus on equity and reversing systemic injustices across federal programs. Still, he said, Black farmers are worried that a federal court could block all programs that direct aid to farmers of color. For grant programs, Trump favored including other groups that included whites — such as veterans and beginning farmers — in eligibility criteria. Experts estimate that there are less than 50,000 Black farmers in the U.S., down from closer to 1 million a century ago. For Black farmers and their advocates, the difficulty in getting aid is nothing new.

Trump demanded that China pay $10 trillion in "reparations" to the US during a speech on Saturday night.

Australia's home prices surge, adding challenges for dovish RBA
  + stars: | 2021-06-01 | by ( Swati Pandey | ) www.reuters.com + 0.00   time to read: +2 min
Australian home prices surged in May while approvals to build new houses reached record highs, helped by super-low rates, adding yet another challenge for the country's central bank, which wants to keep rates low until inflation revives. Separate figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) showed approvals to build private houses skyrocketed 67.4% in April from a year ago while total dwelling approvals soared nearly 40%. Record low borrowing rates together with a government "HomeBuilder" incentive has pushed up housing demand, which is likely to extend despite the conclusion of the fiscal scheme. Yet, exports looked likely to detract 0.6 percentage points from March quarter GDP led by solid import volumes. Importantly, business inventories climbed 2.1% confounding expectations for a 0.2% increase and implying a 0.7 percentage point contribution to GDP.

SYDNEY, May 31 (Reuters) - The Australian dollar rose on Monday to be on track for its second consecutive month of gains, ahead of a monetary policy-setting meeting by its relatively dovish central bank and supported by high commodity prices. “The RBA remains motivated to avoid an unwelcome upward movement in the Australian dollar,” said GSFM investment strategist Stephen Miller. “Any move up in the AUD could well frustrate the task of getting unemployment down and wage growth and inflation up. Illustrating investor caution ahead of the RBA meeting, Australian 10-year bond yields were one basis point higher at 1.64%. Yields on New Zealand bonds for the same maturity were trading four-and-a-half basis points lower at 1.85%.

In 2020, the Trump administration slashed the cap on refugee admissions to a historic low of 15,000. "Biden will turn Minnesota into a refugee camp," Trump warned at one event during his reelection campaign last fall. That has raised the question: Can the US actually resettle as many refugees as Biden would like? Ultimately, the Biden administration did not cave to such fears. But if it's committed to rebuilding America's refugee program, why is it still letting in so few refugees?

The solution is clear: Congress needs to take immigration courts out of the Justice Department and make them independent, similar to other administrative courts that handle bankruptcy, income-tax and veterans’ cases. Reform advocates, including the Federal Bar Association, have pushed the idea of a stand-alone immigration court for years without success. In the meantime, there are shorter-term fixes that could help restore a semblance of impartiality and professionalism to the immigration courts. A thornier problem is how to stamp out the hard-line anti-immigrant culture that spread throughout the Justice Department under Mr. Trump, Mr. The egregiousness of his administration’s approach to immigration may have accelerated efforts to solve the deeper structural rot at the core of the nation’s immigration courts.

A legal group founded by former Trump aide Stephen Miller has filed a lawsuit claiming President Joe Biden's American Rescue Plan discriminates against white farmers. During this review, we will continue to implement the debt relief to qualified socially disadvantaged borrowers under the American Rescue Plan Act." The White House said in March a part of the bill would "support farmers of color with $4 billion toward debt relief for socially disadvantaged farmers to pay off burdensome debts." “For generations, socially disadvantaged farmers have struggled to fully succeed due to systemic discrimination and a cycle of debt,” Vilsack said last month. It also showed that white farmers were paid roughly four times more than Black farmers.

Bishop Mario Dorsonville scolded Biden for not immediately raising the cap on refugee admissions. This year's admissions cap is 15,000, although the Biden administration says it will raise it soon. President Joe Biden may attend mass every Sunday, but when it comes to welcoming more refugees he has thus far been a disappointment to the Catholic Church. Biden campaigned on establishing a more humane immigration system, promising, in particular, to restore a refugee resettlement program that had been systematically gutted by his predecessor. By "embracing President Trump's historically low refugee ceiling," he said in a statement, "President Biden is betraying his commitment to build back better."

But as criticism mounted, the White House issued a statement saying Biden would set a "final, increased refugee cap" for the remainder of this fiscal year by May 15. "Facing the greatest refugee crisis in our time there is no reason to limit the number to 15,000. Republicans have blamed Biden for the situation at the border, faulting his moves to reverse other Trump-era hardline immigration policies. Democratic U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal called Biden's decision not to raise Trump's "harmful, xenophobic and racist refugee cap" unconscionable. Refugee groups previously expressed frustration that Biden had delayed issuing the cap for months, which left refugees who were scheduled to travel stranded.
