U.S. frees asylum-seeking Mexican journalist detained since last year

Not only is the U.S. government doing nothing about the narco-state in Mexico, it is indifferent to the victims of violence occurring in that country:

A Mexican journalist held in U.S. immigrant detention since last year has been released.

Emilio Gutierrez Soto fled to the U.S. with his teenage son a decade ago after Gutierrez said he was threatened by the Mexican military.

The pair have been held at a detention center in El Paso since their asylum claims were denied by a judge in 2017. In May, the Board of Immigration Appeals found that additional information should be considered in the case and sent it back to immigration court for a new hearing.

Jogger detained for 2 weeks after accidentally crossing US-Canada border

This sounds like something North Korea would do. There is no longer any question that America has become a police state:

A woman jogging along a beach accidentally crossed the US border from Canada, and ended up detained in Washington state for two weeks.

Cedella Roman, 19, was visiting her mother from France when she went jogging last month just south of White Rock, British Columbia. She mistakenly continued jogging into Blaine, Washington, she told CNN partner CBC.

As she stopped to take a picture of the view, she turned around and saw two US Border Patrol officers approaching her.

“He stopped me and started telling me I had crossed the border illegally. I told him I really hadn’t done it on purpose, and didn’t understand what was happening to me,” she told the CBC.

The Government wants to Expand Sweeping Warrant Searches

The government wants to expand the police state under our very noses. And they do it because Congress is unaccountable. We reelect 95% of them every 2 years. Only a few are putting up a fight. We must be vigilant or we won’t have any rights left:

A battle is brewing on Capitol Hill over a seemingly small change to federal hacking powers that critics say will authorize sweeping government surveillance.

Unless Congress moves by December to block the change, judges will be allowed to grant a single warrant for multiple electronic searches in different locations — even when investigators don’t know the physical location of a device.
