Trump slams Mexico, current immigration laws

 

President Donald Trump spent his Easter Sunday morning railing against existing U.S. immigration policy and arguing that the nation’s “dumb laws” are leading to “big flows of people” trying to cross the U.S.-Mexican border.

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming.”

The two sides reportedly differed on just how many undocumented immigrants would be covered by an agreement. DACA technically came to an end March 5, but federal court rulings have allowed parts of the program to remain in place while the legal fight continues.

He added: “These big flows of people are all trying to take advantage of DACA. They want in on the act!”

Tiangong 1: Tracking the Chinese satellite falling to Earth

European Space Agency releases new information about the spacecraft that is plunging toward Earth

Tiangong 1, China’s defunct and reportedly out-of-control space station, is about to re-enter Earth’s atmosphere and on Saturday the European Space Agencyreleased new tracking information on the falling spacecraft. ESA officials are now targeting 7:25 p.m. EDT (2325 GMT) Sunday as the likely time for re-rentry.

Meanwhile, the Aerospace Corp. is now forecasting a 4:30 p.m. EDT (2030 GMT) crash on Sunday, give or take eight hours.

The tumbling spacecraft poses only a slight risk to people and property on the ground, since most of the 8.5-ton vehicle is expected to burn up on re-entry, although space agencies don’t know exactly where that will happen.

Below are some questions and answers about the station, its re-entry and the past and future of China’s ambitious space program.

Gun rights activists hand out high-capacity magazines at Vermont rally

Gun rights activists were handing out high-capacity magazines at a rally outside the Vermont State House on Saturday to protest new legislation that would restrict them and increase gun control in the state.

Hundreds of protesters gathered to urge Republican Gov. Phil Scott not to sign a new bill that would ban high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, expand background checks for private gun sales and raise the legal age for gun purchases.

The measure was approved by the State House earlier this week and then again by the Senate on Friday in a 17-13 vote.

Protesters were handed nearly 1,200 high-capacity magazines, which hold 30 rounds of ammunition. A standard-capacity magazine holds around 10 rounds, according toCongressionalsportsmen.org, though this can vary.
