Instead, they were among those swept up by Customs and Border Protection using extraordinary power available during public health emergencies to expel Mexicans and many Central Americans immediately to Mexico and waive immigration laws that include rights to seek asylum. The change made in March is evident in figures released Thursday: The Border Patrol in June put 27,535 people on a track to expulsion under the public health emergency and made only 2,859 arrests under immigration law. The special powers will expire when the pandemic ends, but Trump administration officials have proposed a string of regulations over the last month to put asylum farther out of reach.
Nine months ago he was burned by corrosive liquid hurled during anti-government protests, but Hong Kong police officer Ling says he has no regrets and remains devoted to being a law enforcer. Officers like Ling have formed the spear tip of Beijing's pushback against huge and often violent pro-democracy protests in the restless finance hub. Seven months of clashes last year have left the city bitterly divided with swathes of the population loathing police -- and many officers feeling they have been unfairly vilified.
Clearly, what we have lost with the pandemic is a loss of connection Dr Mike Brumage Public health officials from Kentucky to Florida, Texas and Colorado have recorded surges in opioid deaths as the economic and social anxieties created by the Covid-19 pandemic prove fertile ground for addiction.

In a recent case study, a 26-year-old woman went to intensive care for a week after overdosing on 2 teaspoons of powdered caffeine, equal to 56 cups of coffee. Such was the case with one 26-year-old woman, who experienced difficulty breathing, heart palpitations, sweating, and anxiety after ingesting two heaping teaspoons of caffeine powder, 20 grams total, that was equivalent to drinking 56 cups of coffee, according to a case study published May 14 in BMJ Case Reports. Although the patient ultimately recovered after a week of intensive care, doctors said that her birth control pills likely slowed her body's ability to eliminate caffeine, contributing to the overdose.

Jared Kushner's bold prediction from April about the country "really rocking again" by July has not held up. Seven states have been shutting down aspects of their reopening efforts, while 14 more are pausing their reopenings as the virus surges. Kushner's bullish economic outlook from his April Fox News hit has not fared much better, with the unemployment rate still sitting at 11.1% and two-thirds of Americans on unemployment earning more than they did at their old jobs.
Pro-Trump internet personality Omar Navarro emerged from a six-month stint in jail on a stalking charge last month, and immediately registered to run for Congress. Navarro, a perennial challenger to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), has registered to run for her seat again in 2022—assuming, perhaps logically, that Waters will once again prevail in her re-election request this November. But Navarro, who had nearly $50,000 in his campaign bank account as of March 31 even while he served his jail term, is not going to wait for those results before getting involved.
An Ohio sheriff said he won't enforce Governor Mike DeWine's order making face masks mandatory in states with high rates of Covid-19 infections.

Philippine lawmakers voted Friday to reject the license renewal of the country's largest TV network, shutting down a major news provider that had been repeatedly threatened by the president over its critical coverage. The House of Representatives' Committee on Franchises voted 70-11 to reject a new 25-year license for ABS-CBN Corp.

Only the House of Representatives, which is dominated by President Rodrigo Duterte's allies, can grant such franchises and the chance of any reversal of Friday's vote is extremely low, lawmakers said.

Amid thousands of protests nationwide against police brutality, dozens of drivers have plowed into crowds of protesters marching in roadways, raising questions about the drivers' motivations. Witnesses, law enforcement and terrorism experts said some of the vehicle incidents appear to be targeted and politically motivated; others appear to be situations in which the driver became frightened or enraged by protesters surrounding their vehicle. "I look at it as an anti-protester group of acts, some of which are white supremacist, some not."

Hundreds of USPS delivery trucks were reported to catch fire in the past few years, a new report from Vice shows. The trucks are Grumman Long Life Vehicles and have a 24-year life expectancy. The aging fleet is just another problem the USPS faces, in addition to a dwindling budget and pandemic-related health issues.
Let's get rid of cops, defund them, at least make them less active, deplete their ranks and agree they suffer from systemic racism bred into their modes of behavior, always acting as if to be Black is to be guilty. To cure the supposed police evil, here's a progressive experiment we saw: Going along with protesters to keep police out of a six-block area of Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. The idea was for the protesters to pretty much run the place on their own and enjoy a “summer of love,” a phrase that came from Seattle's Mayor Jenny Durkan.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus called both women "strong-minded, independent leaders", aiming to underscore their freedom in assessing his agency's and governments' COVID-19 responses.
