DHS Frees 5.5K Illegal Aliens into U.S. in a Week; 196K Released in 5 Months

President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released about 5,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the United States over the past seven days, federal data confirms.

From May 28 to June 3, DHS released 5,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities in various states across the country. The latest federal data, obtained by Breitbart News, finds that DHS, in the last week, released nearly 800 border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. every single day.

The catch and release process often entails federal immigration officials busing border crossers into nearby border cities — as well as flying them into the interior of the country — and dropping them off with the hope they show up for their immigration and asylum hearings. The overwhelming majority of border crossers and illegal aliens are never deported from the country once they are released into the U.S.


Arguments for Abortion Mimic the Arguments for Slavery Before the Civil War

Both the arguments for slavery in the 1800s and the arguments for abortion rely on a central claim: that a human being is less than human. The dehumanization of black people relied on pseudoscientific claims that they were inferior. The dehumanization of unborn babies relies on claims that they are "just a clump of cells" or part of a woman's body. In both cases, a growing movement of moral clarity demands that the dehumanized be granted a fundamental right long denied them: freedom and life. (Note: I am not saying abortion and slavery are the same, only that the arguments for them are similar.)

Yet the dehumanization is not the only connection between the pro-slavery arguments in 1800s America and the pro-abortion arguments today. In fact, the two movements also championed a form of "choice" that focused on the will of the master and mother over the fundamental rights of the slave and unborn. They also moved away from claims that slavery and abortion are necessary evils to claims that they are a positive good. Black pro-life activists have also condemned the targeting of black women for abortion, condemning abortion as a form of genocide.

Late last month, The New York Times's Amy Harmon wrote a revealing piece about the language in the abortion debate. She summarized the arguments of "abortion rights advocates" who blamed President Bill Clinton for stigmatizing the term "abortion" in the late 1990s with the "safe, legal, and rare" formulation. "Describing abortion as needing to be rare implied incorrectly, in the eyes of advocates, that there was something inherently wrong with having an abortion," Harmon wrote.


Democrats (Again) Side With Criminal Illegal Aliens in Amnesty Bill

Yesterday Democrats voted to give full citizenship to nearly three million people. The majority of those covered by the legislation were brought to the United States illegally by their parents. Others entered the country illegally as adults.

But it doesn't simply cover individuals in good standing and gives amnesty to criminals with violent records.

The move isn't surprising. After all, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended MS-13 members as haveng a "spark of divinity" within them.


Troopers Arrest Dover Parents After Child Death Investigation Ruled a Homicide-Dover

Dover- The Delaware State Police have arrested a mother and father after a child death investigation was later determined to be a homicide.

The investigation began on April 30, 2017 at approximately 3:54 a.m., when Troopers responded to the Bayhealth Kent General Hospital in reference to a death investigation of a child. Further investigation revealed that the child, who was one years old at that time was at home with his father, 25-year old Antonio Hughes, while his mother 26-year old Chanel E. Green was at work. The child had experienced a medical emergency when Hughes contacted Green to respond back to the residence, located in the 4000 block of Forrest Avenue, Dover.

Upon Green returning to the residence, she and Hughes privately transported the child to the hospital, where the child was later pronounced deceased. The child was turned over to the Delaware Division of Forensic Science to conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.

It was learned at this time that Hughes was arrested and convicted of Child Abuse 2nd in 2016, involving the same child, in which a no contact order was issued. Upon Hughes’s release from prison after this incident, Green allowed him to return to the residence, knowing it was in violation of a no contact order. Green also continued to allow Hughes to be the primary caretaker for their child. When this incident occurred on April 30, 2017, there was a no contact order still in place between Hughes and the child and also a no contact order between Hughes and Green. Hughes was arrested at this time for violating this order and committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $15,000 cash only bond.

It was later determined by the Delaware Division of Forensic Science that the child’s cause of death was homicide by manner of blunt force trauma associated with child abuse.

On May 29, 2019 Chanel Green turned herself in at Troop 3 where she was charged with Criminally Negligent Homicide and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. She was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on $16,000 cash only bond.

On June 6, 2019, Antonio Hughes was charged with Murder by Abuse. He was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and remained at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $1,000,000 cash only bond.

If you or someone you know is a victim or witness of crime or have lost a loved one to a sudden death and are in need of assistance, the Delaware State Police Victim Services Unit/Delaware Victim Center is available to offer you support and resources 24 hours a day through a toll free hotline 1800 VICTIM-1.

JUST IN: Trump suspends plan to impose tariffs on Mexico

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — President Donald Trump says he has suspended plans to impose tariffs on Mexico, tweeting that the country "has agreed to take strong measures" to stem the flow of Central American migrants into the United States.

"I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico," Trump tweeted Friday night, saying the "Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended."

He said Mexico has agreed to work to "stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border" and said those steps would "greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States."

He said details would be released soon by the State Department.


Leader of religious organization La Luz Del Mundo, arrested at LAX on multiple human trafficking and child pornography charges

Joint coordination by HSI, CBP and Los Angeles Airport Police at LAX leads to arrests
SACRAMENTO – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today announced the arrest and filing of charges against Naasón Joaquín García (Joaquín García) and his co-defendants for alleged human trafficking, production of child pornography, forcible rape of a minor, and other felonies.
García and his co-defendants allegedly committed these crimes between 2015 and 2018 while leading La Luz Del Mundo, an international religious organization headquartered in Mexico with reportedly more than one million followers worldwide. 
The arrests in the case which occurred Monday, were the result of joint coordination by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Los Angeles Airport Police at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
“The coercion of minors is unconscionable under any circumstances, but the allegations are even more disturbing when the accused, like the defendant, hold positions of public trust” said Joseph Macias, Special Agent in Charge for HSI Los Angeles. “HSI will continue to work closely with our state and federal law enforcement partners to bring those who would sexually exploit children to justice. Anyone engaged in this manipulative and abusive conduct needs to know that law enforcement in the state of California has joined forces to stop them.”

Mexico deploys military to curb migration, reportedly offers major concessions as Trump tariffs loom

With just days to go until the Trump administration is set to impose punishing tariffs on Mexico unless the country halts the unprecedented flow of illegal immigrants across the southern border, numerous signs that Mexico would capitulate emerged Thursday -- but it remained unclear Friday morning whether their efforts would satisfy the White House.

Reports in the evening indicated that Mexico's negotiators with Washington have offered to immediately deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to the border with Guatemala. Additionally, Mexico has reportedly agreed to a major overhaul of reasonable asylum protocols, which would require asylum applicants to seek permanent refuge in the first country they arrive in after fleeing their home countries.

For virtually all Central American migrants, that country would not be the United States. The Trump administration has already begun requiring asylum applicants to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed, saying too many applicants were using the system fraudulently to escape into the country. Last month, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied a request to stop that practice temporarily.


TSA allowing illegal migrants to fly without proper documents

EL PASO, Texas — The federal agency tasked with overseeing security at transportation hubs has been violating its own policy by allowing migrants who have been released from federal custody onto flights despite not having required documents, according to several Department of Homeland Security officials.

For the past six months, the Transportation Security Administration has allowed migrants released from the custody of other Homeland Security agencies to board flights to other parts of the country despite the passengers lacking any of the 15 documents it states are the only acceptable forms of identification.

Since early December, the agency has avoided temporarily changing federal policy and also not introduced a permanent solution to address this new phenomenon, despite no indication border apprehensions and mass releases are slowing down any time soon.


6 more Maryland parents sued in D.C. crackdown on school residency fraud

WASHINGTON — The District of Columbia sued six Maryland parents Thursday, accusing them of lying about their addresses so they could send their children to District schools for free.

The parents, which include three present or former city government employees, are being sued for $320,000 total in three separate civil lawsuits, one for each set of parents, according to the District's Office of the Attorney General.

“When non-residents defraud District taxpayers and take seats in schools from District students, we hold them accountable,” the District's attorney general, Karl Racine, said in a news release.

At least 21 others have been sued last year and earlier this year for the same residency issues and is seeking $2.5 million in unpaid tuition, according to the Attorney General's Office.


Illegal Immigration Soars to Clinton Levels, 1M Illegals Expected this Year

Illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border for last month surpassed every month of May under the Bush and Obama administrations, taking the U.S. back to a level of border crossings not seen since President Bill Clinton.

As Breitbart News reported, more than 132,000 apprehensions were made in May by U.S. Border Patrol on the southern border. This is a two-decade record high for illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border in May.

Not since May 2000 has the country seen this level of illegal immigration heading into the summer. In May 2000, more than 166,000 border apprehensions were made at the southern border. Clinton was president at the time.


Pakistani Illegal Migrant Charged with Murder of French Student

A Pakistani migrant, said to be in France illegally, has been arrested and charged with the murder of a 23-year-old female student whose body was found in the trunk of her car last month in the commune of Valenton.

According to investigators, Sandra B. had been suffocated and her body was found in the trunk of her car several days after she had gone missing, although investigators said there was no sign of sexual violence.

The 33-year-old Pakistani male was subsequently arrested and charged this week by the Créteil prosecutor with kidnapping, murder, alteration of a crime scene, and several other charges, Le Parisien reports.


They Just Won’t Go Away: Obamas Sign Multi-Year Deal With Spotify to Produce Podcasts to ‘Lift Up Diverse Voices’

Just like the Clintons, the Obamas just won’t go away.

First Netflix, now Spotify.

The Obamas signed a multi-year deal with Spotify to continue to push their Marxist propaganda onto the masses.

Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, ‘Higher Ground’ will produce exclusive podcasts for Spotify to ‘lift up new diverse voices in the entertainment industry,’ the streaming company announced Thursday.

In other words, this is just another way for the Obamas to push radical left-wing propaganda into people’s homes.


A TOOL FOR THE DEEP STATE: Mueller and Weissmann Investigated Jeff Sessions for Allegedly Making False Statements

Jeff Sessions was an accomplice to the Deep State

A new report by Real Clear Investigations reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was investigated by the Mueller Special Counsel and Andrew Weissmann for allegedly making false statements.

The Real Clear Investigations report reveals details on the criminal actions of the Weissmann witch hunt to destroy Donald Trump and anyone close to Donald Trump.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and AG Jeff Sessions gave the Weissmann team their stamp of approval to harass, abuse, bankrupt and jail Donald Trump associates.

And now we know Sessions was under investigation too.

This may explain his behavior as Attorney General.

Jeff Sessions was part of the coup against President Trump.


9 Times The Obama Administration Fought Subpoenas or Blocked Officials from Testifying Before Congress

After the long and thorough, and, of course, incredibly expensive Mueller investigation, Democrats were left distraught over a lack of any crime to justify going forward with impeachment. In the wake of the Mueller report, they’ve since promised new investigations in the hopes of finding some crime to justify putting the country through a process that most don’t want us to go through just because Democrats haven’t gotten over the 2016 election. In recent weeks, stories about subpoenas being challenged and Trump officials being instructed not testify have been saturating the news and being presented as evidence of further obstruction. Most notably, Attorney General Barr faces a forthcoming vote of contempt in the House for not wanting to be a part of the Democrats’ witch hunt.

It seems as good a time as any to remind Democrats that we know their outrage is phony and that we know this is just pandering to their base, who wants to see them "resist, resist, resist" at all costs. So, I've compiled nine examples of fights over subpoenas or testimony during the Obama years. The point here is that fights between the executive branch and the legislative branch over executive privilege are nothing new. Despite the rhetoric that the Trump administration's fighting back against Democrat witchhunts being unprecedented, Barack Obama spent eight years fighting with Congress over their exercising their rights to oversight.


NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio insists anti-Semitism is strictly 'from the right'

New York City mayor and presidential candidate Bill de Blasio claimed this week that the spike in anti-Semitic attacks in his city and beyond can be entirely attributed to the "right-wing movement," drawing ire even from his fellow Democrats.

According to the New York Post, hate crimes are up 64 percent in The Big Apple from this time last year, and anti-Semitic attacks have risen by 90 percent.

Speaking at a news conference in Brooklyn on Tuesday to address the issue, de Blasio said, "I think the ideological movement that is anti-Semitic is the right-wing movement," The Post reported.

When a reporter reminded the mayor that anti-Semitism is also rising "on the left in the BDS movement and around the world," de Blasio dismissed that claim, saying, "I want to be very, very clear, the violent threat, the threat that is ideological is very much from the right."

ICE arrests 32 during 5-day enforcement action in New England

BOSTON – Officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Boston arrested 32 during a 5-day enforcement surge, from May 19-23rd, in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.
During the effort, which focused on persons ordered removed from the U.S. with criminal convictions or pending charges, ICE ERO deportation officers arrested 32 individuals for violating U.S. immigration laws. Arrests occurred in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. Of those arrested, 22 were convicted criminals, 10 had criminal charges pending, 27 had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, and 2 had been previously removed from the United States.
Some of the individuals arrested during these enforcement actions may face federal criminal prosecution for illegal re-entry after removal. The arrestees who are not being federally prosecuted will be processed administratively for removal from the United States. Those who have outstanding orders of removal, or who returned to the United States illegally after being removed, are generally subject to immediate removal from the country. Two individuals are in ICE custody awaiting a hearing before an immigration judge. 
“This successful targeted enforcement operation removed many serious public safety threats from multiple communities throughout the New England region. “ said Marcos Charles, acting field office director for ERO Boston. “It’s because of the professionalism of ICE law enforcement officers and special agents working operations aimed at arresting criminal aliens, that real progress is being made in protecting our communities from the threat posed by criminal aliens.”
Among those arrested by ICE during the operation were:
  • A 45-year old citizen of Vietnam in Boston, MA with a conviction for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
  • A 31-year old citizen of Kenya in Lowell, MA with convictions for assault and battery and Fraud.
  • A 32-year old citizen of the Dominican Republic in Bridgeport, CT with convictions for (3) counts of Identity Theft, (3) counts of Credit Card Fraud and (3) counts of Credit Card Larceny.
  • A 32-year old citizen of Cape Verde in Brockton, MA with convictions for armed assault to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition. This foreign national also has pending charges for possession to distribute fentanyl, resisting arrest and conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substance Act.
The criminal aliens arrested include nationals from: Brazil, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico, Cape Verde, Poland and Vietnam.
ICE removed or returned 258,085 aliens in fiscal year 2018. Enforcement and Removal Operations arrested 158,581 aliens, 90 percent of whom had criminal convictions, pending criminal charges, or previously issued final orders. The overall arrest figure represents an 11 percent increase over fiscal year 2017.
ICE is focused on removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws, including those who illegally re-entered the country after being removed and immigration fugitives ordered removed by federal immigration judges.
Editor’s Note: The arrest statistics provided in this news release represent preliminary data that has been manually reported by an ICE Field Office and may vary from official agency metrics contained in ICE’s system of record. Because ICE’s official metrics are reported by Area of Responsibility (AOR), they may differ in content and level of detail from data that has been manually reported by a Field Office.

Manager no longer working at jewelry store after preventing deputy from picking up engagement ring

IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. — A manager is no longer working at Kay Jeweler's in Statesville after denying a uniformed deputy entrance to the store because of his gun.

The company made the announcement Thursday on Twitter, adding, "We are reinforcing store training regarding all of our Customer First policies, as well as specific policies related to law enforcement, in all of our stores."

The Iredell County Sheriff's Office posted about the incident on Facebook Wednesday, saying the man went into Kay Jewelers on Turnersburg Highway after being notified his engagement ring was ready.


Stanford engineers make editing video as easy as editing text

In television and film, actors often flub small bits of otherwise flawless performances. Other times they leave out a critical word. For editors, the only solution so far is to accept the flaws or fix them with expensive re-shoots.

Imagine, however, if that editor could modify video using a text transcript. Much like word processing, the editor could easily add new words, delete unwanted ones or completely rearrange the pieces by dragging and dropping them as needed to assemble a finished video that looks almost flawless to the untrained eye.

A team of researchers from Stanford University, Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Princeton University and Adobe Research created such an algorithm for editing talking-head videos – videos showing speakers from the shoulders up.

The work could be a boon for video editors and producers but does raise concerns as people increasingly question the validity of images and videos online, the authors said.

MSNBC Anchor Corrects ‘Pro-Life’ to ‘Anti-Abortion’

MSNBC anchor Kasie Hunt caught herself favorably describing pro-life Democrats Thursday, stopping herself mid-sentence to call them "anti-abortion" instead.

On air Thursday, she remarked at the totality of the Democrat Party's embrace of abortion. "This has been something that has been part of Catholic Democrat orthodoxy for many many years," she said. Now, however, that coalition is "all but extinct."

In describing the shift, she described the disappearance of "pro-life—or anti-abortion Democrats, I should say," she said, jumping to correct herself.

Discussing the issue with Juana Summers of the Associated Press, Hunt noted that Democrats had long supported the Hyde Amendment. The 1976 legislation prohibits restricts federal funds going toward abortion procedures.


Rush Limbaugh: Pelosi's reported 'prison' comment a sign she's in 'big trouble' with her own party

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is in big trouble with her own party, and her reported comment about wanting to see President Trump in prison proves it, according to Rush Limbaugh.

The conservative radio host offered up his analysis of the situation Thursday after Politico reported Pelosi told top committee chairmen in her party: “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

“She’s trying to keep her impeachment mob at bay. And she’s having trouble. She’s in big trouble. You know, Trump has a nickname for her, “Nervous Nancy,” and it’s spot on. Nancy Pelosi, Nervous Nancy’s losing control. She knows that she is losing control,” Limbaugh said.


FBI wiretap petitions for Trump campaign contained key errors

Four FBI wiretap applications targeting a Trump campaign volunteer were more inaccurate than previously known based on subsequent investigative information, an analysis shows.

The FBI applications to federal judges under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) are a central focus of the Justice Department’s special review of how the Obama administration started its probe into the Donald Trump campaign.

Obtaining four surveillance warrants on Carter Page from October 2016 to September 2017 was one of the FBI’s most aggressive steps to try to prove that Trump associates conspired with the Kremlin to interfere in the 2016 election. The FBI asserted that Mr. Page was a foreign agent for Russia and helped it interfere in the election.

In the end, special counsel Robert Mueller’s March report said that his 22-month investigation didn’t find any such conspiracy. He essentially cleared Mr. Page.


FCC allows phone companies to auto-block robocalls

The FCC voted Thursday to allow phone companies to block robocalls automatically for their customers.

The vote would allow phone service providers like Verizon to switch on technology that blocks robocalls, which have exploded in number to about 5 billion a month nationwide.

The companies would not need their customers’ permission to block the calls.

The FCC expects companies to provide the service for free, but the vote doesn’t require them to do so. Service providers could start charging customers for the phone-blocking service, as some currently do for caller ID and other features.

ACLU Scrapes Bottom to Stop Census Citizenship Question

Some people will do anything to prevent us from knowing how many non-citizens live in the United States. Count the ACLU and Common Cause among those who will stoop to the lowest of the low to try to persuade one or two swing justices to block the simple question on the Census: Are you a citizen? This time a sleazy drama between an estranged daughter and her deceased father has given the ACLU a final desperate way to bully the Supreme Court into blocking the citizenship question, as well as personally smearing lawyers at the Justice Department.

Last year, the estranged daughter of the late Thomas B. Hofeller, a GOP redistricting guru, found something in her father’s belongings some couldn’t resist turning into a political weapon. After digging through her father’s things, including flash drives and hard drives, Stephanie Hofeller made an offer to the activist group Common Cause they couldn’t refuse – her father’s property. See, Stephanie Hofeller didn’t share her father’s political beliefs, and neither does Common Cause.

And boy did the estranged daughter ever deliver for their common cause.


True the Vote Wins Battle Against IRS -- Tax Agency Must Pay Legal Fees in Decade-Long Fight

True the Vote, a nonpartisan conservative election integrity group that fought a nearly decade-long battle with the IRS and other federal agencies that unfairly targeted the group, has won a major decision in federal court and shall be awarded maximum attorney fees.

“This is a HUGE victory for every American who thinks that they can’t go up against the government and get what they deserve,” Catherine Engelbrecht, True the Vote’s founder, told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview ahead of the group’s public announcement of the victory. “This is an opportunity to make very clear that we didn’t back away and, therefore, American citizens didn’t back away—and we won.”

Engelbrecht added in her interview with Breitbart News that she believes this victory for ordinary Americans against an overreaching and unfair federal government should be dedicated to Breitbart News founder Andrew Breitbart, who before he passed away in 2012, when the news was first breaking of these IRS malfeasances against conservatives, called Engelbrecht to express his support for her cause.

“It’s been on my heart. In so many ways, this is really a victory that should be dedicated to Andrew,” Engelbrecht said in a phone interview on Thursday morning. “When this all began, I got a call from Andrew, who knew that I was way out of my wheelhouse of expectation that a government could do what was already happening. Andrew stepped in and ran towards the fire on my behalf.


Grade Schoolers Forced to Watch Teacher’s Transgender Coming-Out Video

Over the past decade here at Fox News I have been documenting how radical sex and gender revolutionaries have taken over our public school system.

It is a central theme in my upcoming book – Culture Jihad – How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.

Militant activists have been given access to your child’s classroom — and you should be very alarmed at what they are teaching America’s next generation.

And that brings us to Madison, Wisconsin – Frank Allis Elementary School. A science teacher recently announced that he was transition from male to female.

Liberty Counsel – a religious liberty law firm – identified the teacher as Mark Busenbark. He now goes by the name Vica Steel.

The school made every student watch a video of Mr. Busenbark celebrating and explaining his transgender coming out. Now I want you to understand something — Mr. Busenbark broadcast that creepy video with the blessing of the school’s principal.


ISIS plotted to send westerners to US through Mexico border: report

A chilling confession from a captured ISIS fighter has shed light on how the terrorist group intended to exploit the vulnerabilities of the U.S. border with Mexico, using English speakers and westerners to take advantage of smuggling routes and target financial institutions.

Seized ISIS fighter Abu Henricki, a Canadian citizen with dual citizenship with Trinidad, last month said that he was sought out by the violent insurgency’s leadership to attack the U.S. from a route starting in Central America, according to a study by the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE) and published in Homeland Security Today.

“ISIS has organized plots in Europe with returnees so it seems entirely plausible that they wanted to send guys out to attack. The issue that makes a North American attack harder is the travel is more difficult from Syria,” Anne Speckhard, who co-conducted the study as the director of ICSVE and Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University, told Fox News. “So the idea that they would instead use people who were not known to their own governments as having joined ISIS might make it possible for them to board airplanes.”

Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention Reports May Success Through 
Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network
Seizes Enough Fentanyl to Kill Tens of Thousands
ANNAPOLIS, MD – The Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP) today announced another successful month for the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network (MCIN). In May, agencies that receive grants as MCIN sites shared information and resources across networks with the mission of taking dangerous offenders into custody, interrupting the distribution of child pornography, and dismantling drug trafficking organizations in Maryland. One operation crossed state lines to stop the trafficking of enough fentanyl with the potential to kill tens of thousands of our citizens, while another operation resulted in 82 arrests for child exploitation and rescuing 17 children across multiple states.
“The Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network aims to ensure our law enforcement agencies are sharing information across and within their jurisdictions, with the goal of keeping our citizens in Maryland safe,” said Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention Executive Director, Glenn Fueston. “Governor Hogan committed to making all communities safer, from Allegany County to the Eastern Shore, and these operations show that the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network is working.”
MCIN is a criminal justice strategy funded by the Hogan administration through the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention. Announced by Governor Hogan in 2017, the MCIN strategy encourages local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to collaborate and share information to target, disrupt, and dismantle gangs, drug, firearm, and human trafficking operations.

D.C. Gay Pride March Bans Israeli Flags, Allows Palestinian Ones

A Washington gay pride parade is banning participants from brandishing Israeli flags, Israeli pride flags, or any "pro-Israel paraphernalia" during its event on Friday.

Yael Horowitz, a Jewish organizer of the D.C. Dyke March, said organizers had decided to ban "nationalist symbols," including flags and banners that represent "nations that have specific oppressive tendencies."

Palestinian flags would be allowed, however, the Forward reported. It was unclear if this was a tacit acknowledgment of Palestinians not having a true state. It was also unclear if organizers were aware of the lack of LGBT protections for gay Palestinians, including the illegality of male homosexual conduct in the Gaza Strip.

I Remember them Very Well

A man, a miss,
A car a curve.
He kissed the miss,
And missed the curve. Burma Shave

I'm sure that Burma Shave actually saved some lives. People laughed and then were more careful! It was a REAL "service" to America, even though it was an advertisement and it was one of the RARE "really useful" ones!

For those who never saw any of the Burma Shave signs, here is a quick lesson in our history of the 1930's and '40's, 50's too.

Before there were interstates, when everyone drove the old 2 lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers' fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each contain 1 line of a 4 line couplet… and the obligatory 5th sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream.
