The Wider World

Biden asylum policy blocked


The Biden Administration’s new asylum policy intended to stem the number of illegal aliens coming into the United States from Mexico was struck down by a federal judge on Tuesday.

According to The New York Times, Jon S. Togar of the U.S. District Court in Northern California issued a stay on his decision for 14 days, allowing the policy to be in force to give the  federal government time to appeal the ruling.

At issue is the current requirement for asylum seekers to make an appointment with immigration officials before crossing the border.

Critics of the policy sat that anyone who makes it into the U.S. has a right to seek asylum.

Censure resolution against Rep. Greene


Controversial Congresswoman Majorie Taylor Greene is the target of a censure resolution for what was called “fanning the flames” of hate.

United Press International is reporting that Rep. Becca Balint (D-Vermont) has put forth the resolution against the Georgia Republican.

In addition to Greene’s political remarks, she was criticized for allowing sexually graphic images of President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden to be displayed as part of a federal tax investigation.

Censure doesn’t expel a member from the House of Representatives; instead it involves the public reading of the resolution.

Atlantic current system might collapse?

The system of ocean currents which move warm water into the North Atlantic from tropical water may be in trouble, with collapse predicted by as soon as 2025 and beyond.

USA Today is reporting that a study on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation indicated that human-caused climate change could dramatically affect weather, including leading to an ice age in Europe and rises in the sea level for cities located in coasts, such as Boston and New York.

Another effect could be more powerful storms and hurricanes on the U.S. Atlantic coast.
