DHS formally bans family separations for illicit border crossings

Homeland Security officials on Friday formally banned separating children from parents who are caught illegally crossing U.S. border, as part of an effort by the Biden administration to revert the effects of former President Trump's "zero tolerance" policy.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Acting Commissioner Troy Miller issued a memo to the heads of Border Patrol and CBP's Office of Field Operations prohibiting the separation of children from their parents or guardians for convictions on illegal entry to the United States, and banning the referral of parents for prosecution exclusively on the grounds of illegal entry to the country.

Miller's memo added an exception on national security grounds, allowing CBP and Border Patrol agents to refer illegal entry for prosecution with approval of higher-ranking officials and local counsel.

The guidance in Miller's memo is intended to clarify a 2018 court order that required the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to stop separating families based on illegal entry charges and to reunite families who were separated under the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy.


San Jose Shooter Was Reportedly Under Investigation At Work Over Racist Comments

The maintenance worker who fatally shot nine co-workers at a San Jose light rail yard before killing himself Wednesday was under investigation at work because colleagues had complained about his racist remarks, law enforcement authorities told KNTV in San Jose.

Most of the victims at the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority facility were people of color.

There were no details of the exact nature of the remarks reportedly attributed to Samuel Cassidy, 57, who has been identified as the shooter in the massacre. Sources told the NBC TV station that Cassidy also boasted about the firearms and explosives he owned.

Cassidy came to work the day of the shooting with a duffel bag packed with three semi-automatic handguns and 32 high-capacity magazines, The Associated Press reported. He appeared to target his victims as he fired at least 39 rounds.


Israel: Bennett agrees to form 'change government' with Lapid

amina leader Naftali Bennett agreed to forming a coalition government with Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid, N12 reported.

The two sides agreed that Bennett will serve first as prime minister until September 2023, when Lapid will take over until November 2025, according to N12. The swearing-in ceremony is expected to take place in 10 days, following an announcement of the new government either on Saturday night or Sunday.

his came following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's attack on Bennett on Friday, accusing him of rejecting a right-wing government and instead seeking to become prime minister of a "government of the Left."

In a three minute video released on social media, Netanyahu revealed that Likud and Yamina negotiators had reached what he called a far-reaching agreement, but Bennett refused to sign it. The agreement would create a coalition of 59 MKs, two less than is needed. Bennett has declined to form a minority government and urged Netanyahu to find two defectors.

Black Panther: Danai Gurira's Okoye Returning for Disney+ Spinoff Series

According to The Hollywood Reporter, not only will the Black Panther star reprise her role as Okoye in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but she is also set to appear in an unnamed origin spinoff series for Disney+. While Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler is developing a series based on the African nation of Wakanda for the House of Mouse's streamer, it is unclear if that is the drama the trade is referencing. Coogler signed a five-year deal to develop various projects for Disney.

Filming for Wakanda Forever is expected to begin in Atlanta this summer. Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett and Martin Freeman will also return for the sequel, which will build on the legacy established by the late Chadwick Boseman. Boseman starred as T'Challa in the first Black Panther film as well as in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame and died in August 2020 at the age of 43 due to colon cancer.

"It's going to be different, of course, without our king [Chadwick Boseman] but I know that all of us are dedicated to reimagining or carrying on his legacy in this new Black Panther," Nyong'o said in an interview. Marvel Studios has no plans to recast the character of T'Challa and also said it will not insert Boseman using CGI and special effects.
