This week, Texas Democrats, who were critical of the Biden administration’s policies at the US-Mexico border, accused the administration of posting misleading photos from immigration facilities.
Homeland Security Rep. Henry Cuellar accused him of trying to give the impression that the facility in Donna, Texas was empty, but in reality the young immigrants there were simply nearby. Was moved to.
“All they’re doing is moving their children from one tent to another and saying,’Oh, they’re not on the border guard,’” Quela said, according to the Border Report. Said.

The young people were moved to a nearby tent run by the Department of Health and Human Services, a parliamentarian told the outlet.
“But they are right next door,” Quera added about immigrants. “They are right next to HHS.”
In response to an inquiry from the Border Report, DHS officials confirmed that the young man was detained in HHS, but did not disclose the location, the outlet reported.
An image released by the Biden administration on Tuesday is almost empty, with only a few beds and young people, in contrast to the March image showing a large number of immigrant youths packed in the same place. Showed the Donna facility.

White House spokesman Jen Psaki told reporters that young people spend less time in processing facilities than earlier this year.
“Children spend 75 percent less time on CBP custody, from 131 hours at the end of March to less than 30 hours now,” said Pusaki. CBP refers to the US Customs and Border Protection. This is a unit of the Department of Homeland Security, one of several US agencies dealing with issues along the US-Mexico border.

Cuellar is the Vice-Chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee of the House Expenditure Committee. According to the Border Report, he has visited Donna’s facility several times since Biden took office, claiming that weekly tents have been added to accommodate young people arriving from the south of the border.

Buses carrying migrants inside and outside the facility are constantly being seen, and parking staff are needed to control traffic, the report said.
In late April, Cuellar revealed that the Biden administration had swiftly tracked more than 15,300 migrants to release them without formal migrant notice. This is the so-called “catch and release” process, which has been criticized by many Republicans.
65-year-old Quela is from the border town of Laredo and has represented Texas’ 28th constituency since 2005.

Sweden’s Karolinska Hospital announced it will no longer prescribe puberty-blockers and cross-sex hormones to minors under the age of 16. While hormonal intervention is still permitted for minors ages 16 to 18, such treatment is only allowed to occur in scientific research areas designated by the ethics review board in Sweden.
“The hormonal treatment of children and adolescents with gender dysphoria may consist of puberty-blocking treatment initiated at the onset of puberty, and cross-sex hormones initiated at the age of 16,” the hospital said in a statement. “These treatments are controversial and have recently become subject to increased attention and scrutiny both nationally and internationally.”null
Karolinska Hospital warned these treatments may have “irreversible adverse consequences.”
“This makes it challenging to assess the risk / benefit for the individual patient, and even more challenging for the minors and their guardians to be in a position of an informed stance regarding these treatments,” the hospital said.
The decision makes Sweden the first country with a major hospital to abandon the Dutch protocol of administering puberty blockers for minors as young as eight years old. Furthermore, Sweden now becomes the first country to abandon the World Professional Association for Transgender Health’s guidelines. The international non-profit group claimed in 2011 there ought to be “a flexible framework, rather than rigid rules, of appropriate care” for children with gender dysphoria, and, “physician/health care provider protocols for diagnosis and assessment.”
Arkansas became the first state in the U.S. to ban genital mutilation and the administering of puberty blockers to those under 18-years-old, but it was not an easy bill to pass. Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson vetoed the measure in April and went so far as to invoke the name of former President Ronald Reagan to support his position.
Other states have advanced legislation on the issue. The Senate in Alabama voted in April to pass a bill to ban puberty-blockers and hormones to minors and it now heads to the House. However, efforts in Utah, Florida, Tennessee, and Georgia have stalled. In Georgia specifically, HB 401 sponsored by state Rep. Ginny Ehrhart is unlikely to advance “after failing to meet a key deadline,” according to a local paper. The bill could be reintroduced in 2022.
As for children in Sweden who are already undergoing treatment with puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones, the hospital said they will be individually assessed by the treating provider to “determine whether treatment should be stopped or continued.”Gabe Kaminsky is an intern at The Federalist and a student at the University of Pittsburgh.

Facebook tries to silence conservative views while allowing human smugglers to operate ‘openly’ on the platform, says GOP Rep. Kat Cammack
- Rep. Kat Cammack made the claim in a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
- Accused Facebook of allowing human smugglers to operate ‘openly’
- Pointed to Facebook posts advertising illegal border crossing services
- Facebooks says it prohibits content that ‘offers or assists with human smuggling’
- Cammack also accused the social media site of trying to ‘silence’ conservatives
A Republican congresswoman has accused Facebook of trying to ‘silence’ conservativeswhile allowing human smugglers and cartels to operate ‘openly’ on the platform.null
Rep. Kat Cammack, a freshman legislator from Florida, made the allegations in a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday, sharing Facebook posts that advertise illegal border crossing services.https://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.453.0_en.html#goog_5629973630:04Read Morenull
‘Facebook’s role in the crisis at the border is urgent and must be addressed immediately,’ Cammack wrote in the letter, which was first reported by Fox News.
In a statement to DailyMail.com, a Facebook spokesperson insisted: ‘We prohibit content that either offers or assists with human smuggling. We have removed the content highlighted to us that violates our policies.’
Cammack said that she found the Facebook posts advertising services to help migrants illegally cross the border through a simple search on her own.
One post advertises a ‘Safe crossing to the UNITED STATES’ for $6,000. ‘Through the Piedras Negras border to get to SAN ANTONIO More details via telephone,’ the ad reads in Spanish.
Another post advertises a $9,300 all-inclusive service that includes a bus pickup in Guatemala and direct transport to Houston.
‘Even more troubling was the fact that as people visited these pages, myself included, that Facebook then provided additional posts and pages of related illegal content,’ Cammack wrote in her letter.
Power-hungry government officials’ eyes have been opened to how far they can stretch their ’emergency powers,’ and climate change is their next frontier.By Connor Tomlinson
Sir David Attenborough’s upcoming documentary, “The Year Earth Changed,” romanticizes the global lockdowns in 2020 for proving how “the natural world” would “do much better if we weren’t there at all.” Similar attitudes have circulated on social media since last March: from the “nature is healing” meme toExtinction Rebellion stickers calling humanity a “disease” and COVID the “cure” plastered across the East Midlands.
An increasing number of liberal democratic governments are flirting with utilitarian approaches to policymaking, and removing any limiting principles on the scope of their overreach. With herd immunity on the horizon, COVID is expiring as a palatable justification to a paranoid public for intrusive nanny-statism. The next pretext they’re likely to use for controlling lives and livelihoods? Climate change.null
COVID-19 lockdowns produced a 2.4 billion ton (7 percent) decrease in CO2 emissions in 2020. This has informed a belief that lockdowns are a viable method of cutting carbon emissions by 2050. World Economic Forum, European Commission, and U.N. advisor Mariana Muzzucato has, therefore, hypothesized lockdowns may be enforced again to prevent climate change.
Move Goalposts, Stay Locked Down
Measures such as banning private transport, a moratorium on meat consumption, and ending fossil-fuel production would be mandated by governments worldwide. The World Economic Forum has since published other articles like Muzzucato’s, suggesting lockdowns are a “crucial dress-rehearsal”for addressing climate change by reducing consumerism and providing homeostasis for low-emission living.
Other voices promoted this policy in political spheres. Germany’s Social Democratic Party Member of Parliament Karl Lauterbach authored an op-ed urging environmental policies analogous to “the restrictions on personal freedom [imposed] to combat the pandemic.” The U.K.’S Green Party praised lockdowns for providing a vision of how “a different world might be possible.”
When debating the role of the market in environmentalism at Durham Union,Extinction Rebellion co-founder Claire Farrell pushed for replicating COVID-19 lockdowns to instigate revolutionary economic redistribution and reduce Britain’s carbon emissions.null
Of 180 nations, the U.K. has imposed the sixth most stringent COVID-19 lockdowns on its subjects. Recently, the prime minister stated it was his lockdown policies — not Britain’s exemplary vaccine rollout program — that reduced COVID-19 cases and related deaths. Neither the facts nor the principles behind the prime minister’s “data not dates” approach have been presented to the British public. Instead, the prime minister seems to be hard-selling lockdowns as a policy worth repeating.
Parliament appears to have bought this line of argument. A bipartisan majority of members voted to extend “draconian” “Emergency Powers” until October. This is despite six of England’s nine regionsreporting no deaths with COVID-19 that week, and the World Health Organisationcondemning the use of lockdowns as a “primary control method” for pandemics. With the government repeatedly moving goal-posts — from “Protect the NHS. Save lives” to a crusade to immunize Brits from death itself — there’s no longer any set criteria on which reopening the country is contingent.
Negative externalities produced by the U.K.’s three successive lockdowns have inflicted irreversible damage on society. Taxpayer money funded a “covert,” “unevaluated psychological experiment”run on the British public, with sage advising the government “use media to increase the sense of personal threat.”
Lockdowns’ combination of prohibited commercial operations and the furlough scheme is costing Britain £1.5 billion daily. Banning small businesses causedincome disparity to increase; and wealth and influence monopolistically consolidate in international companieslike Amazon, which accrued record profitsdue to stay-at-home orders.null
It’s financially unsustainable and morally untenable to involuntarily confine anybody — let alone healthy people — to their homes, and deprive them of opportunities to interact or earn a living. However, when halting what Greta Thunberg called “the fairy-tale of eternal economic growth” is the goal, lockdowns become an enticing tool for ending both capitalism and climate emissions.
Climate Change as Eugenics
British professor Patricia McCormack’s “Ahuman Manifesto” urges gradual depopulation according to intersectional feminism. Echoing Simone De Beauvoir’smetaphors of a feminine Earth violated by masculine instruments of industrialization. Sen. Bernie Sandersendorsed abortion as a method of lowering carbon emissions through population control. Some women have taken to surgical sterilization, believing “going child-free [is] the answer to our climate crisis.”
Lockdowns aid in suppressing population growth. Despite initial predictions of aquarantine “baby boom” — when we have, as Dostoyevsky said, nothing to do but “sleep, eat cakes and busy [ourselves] with [the] continuation of the species” — the West is heading for a “baby-bust”. Increases in self-reported anxiety and suicidality have depreciated libido.null
A 2020 survey of European couples’ fertility plans demonstrated dire economic straits have influenced 50 percent of couples to postpone having children, even indefinitely. Both economic and individual depression produced by lockdowns will depreciate birth rates for a generation.
Where did these lockdown policies come from? As Professor Neil Ferguson, whoseerroneous epidemiological models for Swine Flu caused thousands of unnecessary livestock deaths, explains, his advice to the U.K. government was based on actions taken by “a communist one-party state”: China. Ferguson cited China’s totalitarian lockdowns where families were welded into their homes as the precondition for Britain realizing “We [could] get away with it.”
If China is the standard for morally legitimate policies, what is the limiting principle on governments’ intervention into lives and livelihoods the pretext of other “existential threats”?
Emulating the European Union, the prime minister has proposed ransoming normality back to us with oxymoronic “Freedom Passports”: promoting pub chains to tie pulling pints to theircustomer’s vaccine status. This program has been critically compared to China’s Social Credit System: a surveillance software that consolidates citizens’ medical history, biometric data, and social media so the government can blacklist dissidents from purchasing property, using transport, and accessing vital goods and services. (This was satirized by “Black Mirror.”)
Tying one’s ability to own and exchange property and engage with civil society to one private medical history is an inexcusable intrusion on inviolable rights. And what’s to stop penalties being tied to a digital carbon footprint down the line?
The World Locks Down and China Races Ahead
The biting irony of lockdowns is that China lifted restrictions as early as March 2020. China has accelerated its timeline of global dominance by five years in 2020, due to a combination of using slave labor and the economic damage lockdowns inflicted on competitors. It would be ludicrous for climate lockdown advocates to assume China — the leading global producer of carbon emissions andocean plastic pollution — would adopt lockdown policies at the expense of their economic growth and role as top dog of the global hegemon.
Fortunately, non-authoritarian measures are both more moral and more effective at addressing climate concerns.Environmental Kuznets curvesdemonstrate the wealthier a nation is, the more environmentally conscious decisions are made over time. Prior resource scarcity prophecies from the likes of Paul Ehrlich were also predicated on embarrassing underestimations of human ingenuity.
Markets and families, not depopulation and ending innovation, are the best mechanisms for combating climate change. There’s no imperative to improve or conserve the Earth without a generation to inherit it. Both ethics and efficacy expose lockdowns as unsustainable, inefficient, and immoral, regardless of pretext.
Whether for planet or pandemic, lockdowns, health passports, and sterilization narratives should be opposed as long as they remain voluntary and resisted if ever made mandatory.Connor Tomlinson is the policy director for the British Conservation Alliance and a Young Voices UK contributor.

This woman is a danger.
Last year St. Louis City saw its highest homicide rate in 50 years.
But after little to no action by Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, state officials passed legislation to allow the state attorney general to take over homicide cases in St. Louis after 90 days if Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner hasn’t filed charges or upon request from the “chief law enforcement officer.”
Gardner, a Soros-funded prosecutor, has been a complete disaster for the City of St. Louis.
The Soros-funded Circuit attorney rejected several open-and-shut cases due to the fact that she believed local police officers were racists.
