A growing number of Hispanics along the Texas-Mexico border with birth records showing they were born in the United States are being denied American passports, held in immigration detention centers, and entered into deportation proceedings, immigration attorneys and individuals affected told the Washington Post.
According to the Post report, the issue stems from a government allegation that from the 1950s through the 1990s, midwives and physicians working along the border issued American birth certificates to babies born in Mexico, which some birth attendants have admitted to in court.
The State Department, the Post said, denies changing its "policy or practice regarding the adjudication of passport applications." The agency also said the border region "happens to be an area of the country where there has been a significant incidence of citizenship fraud." But immigration attorneys and cases identified by the Post suggest a "dramatic" change in passports issued and how immigration laws are enforced.
In the debut episode of his new HBO show “The Shop” LeBron was asked about his experience in dealing with white people when he was in high school.
Seven people were hospitalized in Rogersville following a Monday morning traffic stop. The chief of police in Rogersville said that officers confiscated a small amount of marijuana and a vape pipe during a traffic stop around 6 a.m. While confiscating that pipe to test it, liquid reportedly got on an officer’s hand.
Within a few minutes, that officer reportedly had a headache, blood-shot eyes, and his skin was red. A paramedic who responded to the scene later became sick and was taken to Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital (ECM).
ECM then suggested that everyone who was exposed be checked out. The chief of police was notified that one of the firefighters began experiencing a nosebleed and a severe headache, while another firefighter became light-headed and dizzy. Another employee of the police station also became sick.
A Minnesota state House candidate used a racial slur in a recent campaign video – and he’s not shying away from the decision to do so.
“I want to be your state representative. I want to be your public servant. And I want to be your n-----,” Kyle Greene, an independent, said in his first campaign commercial, which has been posted to his Facebook page.
Greene, whose platform is focused on judicial reform, is running against incumbent Republican Rep. Dean Urdahl in congressional district 18A. His ad stressed “judicial reform" in red letters at the bottom of the screen, though didn't discuss his plan during the 30-second clip.
Greene told The Star Tribune he used the slur in order to have voters focus on “the real issues at hand.”
“We need to unify as a society, and we need to stop dealing with trivial matters. The word … is part of the American history, regardless of the race,” he said. “It’s part of my history being African-American, white and Cherokee Indian.”

Kansas is part of a national battle over transgender discrimination in the workplace. Attorney General Derek Schmidt joined a 16 state group to take the case to the Supreme Court.
It all started when a Michigan funeral home fired a worker for coming out as transgender. That began a heated legal battle. Kansas is part of a group of 16 states who are defending the funeral home's decision.
Local transgender activist Stephanie Mott says Kansas's involvement is disappointing, but not out of character.
"I'm not really surprised. Kansas has never really recognized transgender identity and the fact that we're human beings and just like everyone else," Mott said.
The case comes down to a legal argument over whether or not a civil rights act from the 60s protects transgender people from discrimination in the work place. Kansas and the other states are saying it doesn't. Steve Cann is a political science professor at Washburn University.
"They like a narrow interpretation of the term sex in the 1964 Civil Rights Act which forbids discrimination on the base of sex. They don't want sexual preference to be part of gender or sex," Cann said.

A California man is facing 10 felony counts for allegedly sneaking out on dates just before the waiter brings the check, authorities said Monday. Paul Guadalupe Gonzalez, 45, set up dates across southern California and would enjoy the meals before he'd disappear. He pleaded not guilty to extortion, grand theft and other charges. Gonzales is accused of defrauding the women of nearly $1,000.

China killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 CIA sources from 2010 to 2012, hobbling U.S. spying operations in a massive intelligence breach whose origin has not been identified, the New York Times reported on Saturday.
Investigators remain divided over whether there was a spy within the Central Intelligence Agency who betrayed the sources or whether the Chinese hacked the CIA’s covert communications system, the newspaper reported, citing current and former U.S. officials.
The Chinese killed at least a dozen people providing information to the CIA from 2010 through 2012, dismantling a network that was years in the making, the newspaper reported.
One was shot and killed in front of a government building in China, three officials told the Times, saying that was designed as a message to others about working with Washington.
The breach was considered particularly damaging, with the number of assets lost rivaling those in the Soviet Union and Russia who perished after information passed to Moscow by spies Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen, the report said. Ames was active as a spy in the 1980s and Hanssen from 1979 to 2001.

John Solomon told Sean Hannity that from Ohr’s testimony today we now know that dirty cop Robert Mueller NEVER interviewed Bruce Ohr in his ongoing witch hunt.
This is shocking news considering Mueller was appointed Special Counsel to investigate Russian Collusion and it was Ohr and his wife who supplied the Deep State with the junk dossier to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and Trump administration. It certainly proves, once again, that Mueller’s investigation is only a Democrat witch hunt to get Trump.
Russia has test-fired a new interceptor missile designed to protect Moscow from air and space attacks as it beefs up its military might.
The Kremlin claims the test was a success and the air defence system is unprecedented, setting new records for accuracy, range and speed.
But it remains shrouded in secrecy, with Moscow refusing to show what it looks like up close or reveal how far it can travel.
The latest weapon in Vladimir Putin's arsenal - amid rising tensions with the West - can destroy a ballistic target hurtling at seven kilometres (4.3 miles) per second, Russia claims.
An Uber driver shot and killed a man who chased and threatened him in a "classic case of stand your ground," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said.
Jason Boek, of Winter Haven, was killed in the shooting, which was reported around 2:20 a.m. Tuesday on Dundee Road, just east of Carl Floyd Road and County Road 550 near Cypress Gardens.
According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, a woman called for an Uber to take her home from the Grove Lounge on U.S. Highway 27 in Dundee because she had been drinking.
Another woman at the lounge walked the patron to her Uber when it arrived, deputies said. The women do not know each other.
The Uber driver, a 38-year-old Lake Wales man, drove the woman west on Dundee Road
Meanwhile, the woman who assisted the Uber passenger began receiving text messages from Boek, her on-again, off-again boyfriend, who thought she got into the Uber, deputies said. Boek told her he was going to pursue the Uber and beat up driver, according to officials.
Judd said it appears Boek thought his girlfriend, not the other bar patron, get into the car.
Boek drove a Ford F-250 pickup truck that was borrowed, and chased down the Uber driver, who was in a Hyundai, officials said. Boek pulled in front of the car, and the Uber driver thought he was trying to run him off the road, deputies said.
Boek stopped the truck and began walking toward the Hyundai, saying, "You know, I got a pistol. You want me to f****** shoot you?"
As Boek kept walking toward the car, the Uber driver, who is a concealed weapon permit holder and a licensed armed security guard who just finished the police academy, reached into the pocket of the driver door and retrieved a handgun, firing one shot at Boek, who was struck in the chest and killed, officials said.
A Chinese state-owned company reportedly hacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server, then inserted code that forwarded them a copy of virtually every email she sent or received after that -- a revelation President Trump is demanding be investigated.
The Daily Caller reported that the firm operating in the D.C. area wrote code that was then embedded in the server and generated a “courtesy copy” for almost all her emails -- which was then forwarded to the Chinese company.
The code reportedly was discovered in 2015 by the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), which then warned FBI officials of the intrusion.
A source briefed on the matter confirmed to Fox News the details of the Caller’s reporting, and said that the ICIG was so concerned by the revelation that officials drove over to the FBI to inform agents -- including anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok -- of the development after it was discovered via the emails' metadata.
The source told Fox News the hack was from a Chinese company, describing it as a front for Chinese intelligence.
A second source briefed on the matter told Fox News that officials outside of the FBI indicated code on the Clinton server suggested a foreign source was receiving copies of emails in real time.
The hacking report caught the attention late Tuesday of President Trump, who warned that the FBI and DOJ should act or “their credibility will be forever gone.”
Report just out: “China hacked Hillary Clinton’s private Email Server.” Are they sure it wasn’t Russia (just kidding!)? What are the odds that the FBI and DOJ are right on top of this? Actually, a very big story. Much classified information!

Democrat California gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newson said in an interview released Tuesday that, as governor, he would grant universal health care to illegal aliens through an executive order.
Newsom told Pod Save America hosts Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett that he was “very proud” of creating the nation’s only universal healthcare plan for illegal immigrants as mayor of San Francisco.
FAVREAU: Let’s talk about something very costly– single-payer health care. You’ve been very supportive over the course of the campaign—
FAVREAU: You’ve expressed, in the past, support for Senate bill 562, single-payer health care in California.
NEWSOM: —That was amended. Yes.
FAVREAU: Right, so, it passed the State Senate, it died in Assembly. As governor, do you hope the revive that bill? Do you want to see a new bill?
FAVREAU: How do you plan to get single-payer health care passed?
NEWSOM: It needs to be pulled into the governor’s office. The executive needs to lead it. Obamacare would not have happened if it was just exclusively a legislative fiat — that said — and Nancy Pelosi did a magical job of organizing it, but it required the concerted contributions of the president of the United States. The only way in a state whose population that is larger than 163 nations — California — whose economy is larger than all of four nations — fifth largest economy — to approximate a strategy for universal health care with the support and concurrence of the governor. Frankly, that’s not an indictment, it’s just what’s been missing in the past. So, I’d bring that into my office. I brought it well beyond a bill that basically started a process. If you read 562, the vast majority of elected officials that were for and against it didn’t — Did not. For and against did not, because they would have actually known what it said.
It would have created a committee that began a process to come up with a strategy and a plan to finance and organize with 34 prescribed benefits, a universal strategy for single-payer financing. That process can be done without a bill. That process should be done by the next governor and I’m committed to it for no other reason than health care is devouring our budget. Health care in this state is the biggest driver of our unfunded retirement benefits. It’s a driver of a lot of our costs, not the least of which at the UC and CSU. I serve on both those boards. Tuition is impacted by the costs of employment, personnel costs are impacted by health care. It’s the issue that animates most of the voters I talk to, still, even in this post-Obamacare world. The inflationary burdens are self-evident and the vandalism these guys are doing on the federal level is only going to make things worse. I’d like to see if we could control our own destiny. I’m not naive about it. I did universal health care when I was Mayor. Fully implemented, regardless of pre-existing conditions, ability to pay, and regardless of your immigration status. San Franciso is the only universal health care plan for all undocumented residents in America. Very proud of that. We proved it could be done without bankrupting the city. I’d like to see that extended to the rest of the state.

President Donald Trump celebrated Wednesday that the Republican nominee for Florida governor was facing a radical socialist in the election.
“Not only did Congressman Ron DeSantis easily win the Republican Primary, but his opponent in November is his biggest dream,” Trump marveled on Twitter. “A failed Socialist Mayor named Andrew Gillum who has allowed crime & many other problems to flourish in his city.”
Gillum surprised the Democrat establishment in Flordia with a primary victory. He was endorsed by socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders and ran on a platform of universal health care, a $15 an hour minimum wage, abolishing ICE, and repealing Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” gun defense law.
“This is not what Florida wants or needs!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Gillum was endorsed by liberal billionaires Tom Steyer and George Soros and published a video calling for Trump’s impeachment.
Lanny Davis, who has been engaged in high-stakes crisis management and political lawyering for decades, says he made a mistake.
CNN, which relied on Davis at least in part for a story he now says is false, won't say it made a mistake.
And the contretemps contains a revealing look at the sausage-making of investigative reporting and the sometimes murky dance between reporters and their unnamed sources.
Davis, who I've found to be a straight shooter over a quarter century dating back to the Clinton scandals, told me in a telephone interview yesterday that he had made an error and regrets it.
"I should not be talking to reporters on background about something I'm not certain about," Davis told me, describing his interactions with CNN reporters. "The combination of big stakes and a big mistake is a bad moment for me. If I had a redo in life, I wouldn't have said anything about the subject."
After initially saying nothing, here is the sum total of CNN's comment: "We stand by our story, and are confident in our reporting of it." A CNN report yesterday said that Davis kept changing his story in his dealings with the network.
Here's the backstory: CNN dropped a bombshell last month by reporting that Davis' client, Michael Cohen, had information that Donald Trump knew in advance of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between his son, his son-in-law, campaign chairman and a Russian lawyer. "Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller," according to "the sources," CNN said.
The president has repeatedly denied any advance knowledge of the meeting.

Odell Beckham Jr. joined LeBron James’ HBO show “The Shop” on Tuesday to explain how he feels about fame and the expectations from fans that he should bend to their every will.
The New York Giants star, who recently signed a five-year, $95 million contract extension, making him the highest-paid wide receiver in football, said he feels like a “zoo animal” at times.
“To me, I be feeling like, I tell people this all the time -- I really feel like a zoo animal. Like that’s where life’s gone for me,” he said. “You know, you used to take your kids to the zoo and we used to be like, you know, 'I want to see the lions' or 'Let’s go see the lions.' And you go out there, and the lions are laid out. You know what I mean?
“And it’s like, why aren’t they doing lion stuff, you know what I mean? Like I’ve got people who call out, 'Odell! Dance!' Like, I’m a show punk, a show monkey or something. Like I’m a puppet, you know what I mean? And it’s like to me, that doesn’t feel good, but it’s like, damn, that’s what life became. But, can you ever really detach from that?”
Beckham and James also talked about the expectations that come with being a black athlete. The Los Angeles Lakers star said there’s a double standard when it comes with being African-American, saying there would be a different response if he did one thing and a guy like Aaron Rodgers did it too.
“And we’re doing the same s---, the same exact s---, I’m talking about the phone is on. We’re like, ‘Yo, get that f-----g phone out of my face. I’m with my family.’ If we’re out with our family, and we say that s---, and somebody posts it, and if Aaron Rodgers or one of those guys say that s---, and they post it, somebody’s going to be like, ‘Hey you guys should respect Aaron Rodgers,’” James said.
Beckham then told the story about an interaction with a fan who wanted to take a picture with him.
“I had it happen the other day. I didn’t want to take a picture. Like, I’m like I’m really in a rush, I’ve got to go. I get on Twitter, it’s like, oh, yeah, I’m a Giant season ticket-holder for thirty years. I’m like, ‘First of all, you’re twenty-something,’” he said. “And then, it’s like, oh, he’s an a------, he didn’t want to take a picture.”

It’s a staple feature in many science fiction blockbusters, and now scientists have developed a fully 3D printed bionic eye for the first time.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota printed an array of light receptors on a hemispherical surface.
And they believe that the bionic eye could soon let blind people see, or sighted see better.
Dr Michael McAlpine, co-author of the study, said: “Bionic eyes are usually thought of as science fiction, but now we are closer than ever using a multimaterial 3D printer.”

Monday night on Making Money with Charles Payne at least two globalist guests, Hadley Heath Manning and Jillian Melchior, who dissed the president’s latest accomplishment.
That’s when Charles Payne chimed in.
“I will respectfully disagree. Every expert who echoes this whole, ‘You know we’re worried about the consumer.’ They’re not. They’re worried about corporate America’s bottom line. They’re worried about the globalists and Wall Street making big money. I don’t believe that. Because if you really were concerned I think the average American watching this show would pay a little more so the guy who lost their job a few years ago got it back.
The courtesy call between President-elect Barack Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon turned out to be a little more revealing than anticipated. The statement from incoming White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs gave a pretty clear, if vague, picture of where Obama plans to take the bilateral relationship. On renegotiating NAFTA, he stood his ground as Calderón lobbied heavily not to re-open the North American Free Trade Agreement.
“On trade and the economy, President-elect Obama said that with both countries facing very difficult economic times, it’s important to work together to maintain a constructive and comprehensive dialogue. He expressed his continued commitment to upgrading NAFTA to strengthen labor and environmental provisions to reflect the values that are widely shared in both of our countries, and proposed the creation of a consultative group to work on a host of issues important to the United States and Mexico, including NAFTA, energy and infrastructure.”
President Trump won a major victory on trade on Monday, supplanting the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and replacing it with something far more beneficial. The new deal will help American workers and manufacturers. It’s also a win for Mexico.
One of the most fundamental parts of Trump’s campaign for president was his promise to change America’s deeply flawed trade arrangements. These deals left us with massive $500 billion trade deficits—a huge drag on the economy—and devastated forgotten communities across America that are dependent on manufacturing jobs.
Second only to the booming economy, Monday’s announcement of a deal with Mexico is the most visible manifestation of Trump’s fulfilment of his campaign promises. Last year, the USA had a large $71 billion trade in goods deficit with Mexico, owing in part to much lower worker pay. This new deal will limit Mexico’s ability to take U.S. manufacturing jobs by underpaying workers.
Another key part of the new trade deal increases the percentage of a car that must be made in North America to qualify for lower-tariff import into the USA. This will be a major boon to American automotive workers and that industry’s domestic supply chain.
This is something you can guarantee the liberal media in America won't be playing on their stations anytime soon. This British woman is begging for someone like Donald Trump to step in and help resolve the problems Britain attempting to leave the EU.

Following his dismissal of May and the Commonwealth, Malema went off on a tangent about a borderless African continent.
Clearly, Malema sweats the small stuff, as he lambasted the use of judicial wigs, saying:
“It is through small things that we can achieve the total freedom of South Africa. Like that wig that judges wear, what is that? Does it mean that you can only think when you wear the hair that resembles that of a white man?”
He then went on to propose a unified language for all Africans:
“We must develop a common language that can be used throughout the continent. Like Swahili, if it can be developed as the language of the continent.”
Lastly, he called for a borderless African continent, with one ruling party, saying:
“We need a border-less continent, We need one currency, one paliarment and one President that can unite the continent. We need a United States of Africa. We need one Africa.”
