Rep. John Katko: Biden's Border Crisis -- Every state is now a border state

  Rep. John Katko: Biden's Border Crisis -- Every state is now a border state As the crisis at the southwest border rapidly intensifies, every state has now become a border state, and every community is affected by this administration’s destructive policies.  As Border Patrol resources are shifted from the northern and coastal borders to aid overwhelmed and overextended law enforcement at the southwest border, we expose ourselves to serious national security threats. What is worse is a lack of clarity, information, and access by the White House and the Department of Homeland Security.

Health authorities have identified more than two dozen exposure sites in New South Wales and Queensland after a woman left Melbourne during lockdown on Tuesday, June 1 before testing positive for COVID-19 on the Sunshine Coast yesterday.

The woman, who Guardian Australia explains could be a recovered case, apparently travelled through Gillenbah, Forbes, Dubbo, Moree, Goondiwindi, Toowoomba, Kings Beach, Moffat Beach, Caloundra, and Buddina before arriving in Baringa on Tuesday, June 9.

Coincidentally, Jacinda Ardern has also had to warn of “consequences” for people found to break New Zealand’s border controls after three other Melburnians were caught last week trying to enter the country via Sydney.

Kamala Harris' Migrant Crisis Diplomacy Is Off to a Rocky Start

  Kamala Harris' Migrant Crisis Diplomacy Is Off to a Rocky Start "I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border," Harris said in her speech Monday. "Do not come. Do not come."The trouble began on Sunday when CBS aired an interview with the Guatemalan President who blamed the Biden administration for sparking the border crisis with a confusing message on immigration.

The news comes after the Victorian government announced Melbourne’s restrictions will ease slightly on Friday. The ABC reports that, facing criticism from groups such as gym owners, chief health officer Brett Sutton has unpacked why some remaining restrictions may look “out of accord” with those being eased i.e. “cumulative risk” of house gatherings, aerosol risks in gyms.

The city yesterday recorded just one new case along with several new exposure sites, including the Arcare Maidstone aged care facility and venues across Bundoora,  Maribyrnong, North Melbourne, Reservoir, South Melbourne, and Thomastown.

Harris meets with Mexican president amid criticism over migrant remarks, lack of border visit

  Harris meets with Mexican president amid criticism over migrant remarks, lack of border visit Vice President Kamala Harris on Tuesday was meeting with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as part of a two-day tour to the region to tackle what the Biden administration describes as the "root causes" of the crisis at the southern border -- as she faces criticism for failing to visit the border and remarks a day earlier on illegal migration. Harris, who was appointed more than 70 days ago by President Biden to lead the diplomatic effort to stop the migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, met with Lopez Obrador on Tuesday afternoon ahead of a press conference later in the day.

JAPAN BACKS AUSTRALIA AGAINST CHINA’S ‘COERCION’

According to the ABC, Japan has backed the Australian government’s campaign against China’s “economic coercion” in a detailed joint statement released by Foreign Minister Marise Payne and Defence Minister Peter Dutton and their Japanese counterparts — Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi and Defence Minister Nobuo Kishi — following a meeting via video link.

The joint release, which comes before Scott Morrison heads to Singapore today and Britain tomorrow for a “G7-plus” meeting, suggests Beijing’s informal trade sanctions on Australia have destabilised the international system. It also voices “serious concerns” over reports of human rights abuses in Xinjiang, and touches on several other issues such as Myanmar, defence cooperation, and tensions in the South China Sea and East China Sea.

Arizona AG urges senators to push for more federal assistance to combat border crisis

  Arizona AG urges senators to push for more federal assistance to combat border crisis FIRST ON FOX: Arizona’s attorney general on Tuesday urged the state’s two senators to push for greater federal funding for the state to deal with the surge in migration at the southern border -- including more funding for the National Guard, as well as tougher interior enforcement. "Our office is doing everything it can to protect Arizonans during this rapidly escalating humanitarian and public safety crisis at our southern border," Attorney General Mark Brnovich wrote to Democratic Sens. Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema. "While our nation has faced migrant surges in the past -- this is the worst it has been in more than twenty years.

NO RESOLUTION ON RESOLUTION

Finally, after Queensland Labor’s state conference backed a resolution condemning ­Israel’s ongoing “annexation by stealth of Palestinian land” and incitement of recent violence through forced evictions in Sheikh Jarrah and attacks on Al-Aqsa mosque worshippers, The Australian ($) reports that former foreign minister Bob Carr has slammed suggestions of growing anti-Semitism in Labor as “an attempt to close down criticism of Israel by kicking up a debate that took place in British Labor”.

Carr’s comments come after opposition foreign affairs spokesperson Penny Wong condemned the resolution, arguing that “viewing any conflict from only one perspective will not advance the cause of peace,” along with co-convener of the Australia Israel Labor Dialogue Adam Slonim.

Darrell Issa invites VP Harris to visit the California-Mexico border

  Darrell Issa invites VP Harris to visit the California-Mexico border Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., invited Vice President Harris to visit the U.S.-Mexico border just miles from his district on the outskirts of San Diego. "The conditions that she saw at the border when she was a senator … have deteriorated as a result of the policies of this administration, and she needs to see that firsthand," Issa told Fox News in an exclusive interview. "Anyone who sees that will, in fact, make a decision that some of the polices implemented in the first 100 days of this administration need to be reversed. … Unless you want open borders.

The news follows Israel’s mass arrest of Palestinian activists and journalists, which, as Al Jazeera reports, comes amid a “reinvigorated peaceful resistance” following the Israel-Hamas ceasefire.

And facing the end of 12 years in power and an ongoing corruption trial, Benjamin Netanyahu has begun pressuring Knesset members not to vote for a new government on Sunday.

THEY REALLY SAID THAT?

Your editorial, headlined ‘Greatest Enemy of Truth is Those Who Conspire to Lie’ (The Australian, 8 June, 2021) is a disgrace. After paragraphs lauding the highest goal in journalism — ‘to expose wrongdoing in public life’ — you proceed to castigate in the most vicious terms the work of two fine ABC journalists, and to accuse them, in a piece absolutely devoid of evidence or example, of ‘bad, lazy, deceitful journalism’.

‘Many senior people at The Australian know well the work, the habits, and the hubris of Sally Neighbour and Louise Milligan,’ you bloviate…

Jonathan Holmes

Strangely, after issuing an unsubstantiated and nakedly partisan attack on two Four Corners journalists ($), those stalwarts of free speech editing The Australian chose not to publish a response by the former Media Watch host, who has since put it up on Twitter.

Aged care workforce: the slow-motion catastrophe we’re watching without action

“Australian policymakers have long known they have a major problem with our aged care workforce, and they’ve known what the solutions are. But they’ve failed to act for over a decade, despite constant reviews and studies detailing the challenge. The result has been an aged care system that is an insult to senior Australians, who have been abused, rorted and neglected in their final years and allowed to die in their hundreds when COVID reached our shores.”

Proposed powers for charity head are an ‘unconstitutional overreach’

“The charity commissioner has more power than the Australian Securities and Investments Commission commissioner and the commissioner of taxation and, if proposed reforms are passed, will soon be able to penalise charities if their members are suspected of committing minor offences (such as not moving on when directed by police, or trespassing) even if they’re never charged.

“It’s been deemed an unconstitutional overreach by many in the sector, as well as unnecessary: in Senate estimates it was revealed only two ‘activist’ charities lost their charity status for breaking the law, yet 59,000 charities will be affected by the reforms.”

“The prime minister, flanked by the Australian Federal Police commissioner and a representative for the FBI, didn’t let the truth get in the way of an attempt to wedge his opposition on national security.

“Morrison spruiked three bills before the parliament as necessary for Australia’s border security, and pointed his finger at Labor as an obstacle to their passage: ‘It’s time that these three bills get bipartisan support through the parliament so the commissioner and the other commissioners around the country can better do their jobs.’”

THE COMMENTARIAT

Until we face up to the lie that underpins our treatment of refugees, Tharnicaa and children like her will suffer Sisonke Msimang (Guardian Australia): “If the minister manages to get them out of detention, many Australians will breathe a sigh of relief and consider themselves morally vindicated. Many Australians desperately want to see themselves as decent people, despite the immigration policies their governments have adopted. This is understandable. No nation likes to think of itself as racist, mean-spirited and xenophobic, even when its policies are clearly all of those things.”

Republicans grill Mayorkas on lack of funding for border patrol agents, wall

  Republicans grill Mayorkas on lack of funding for border patrol agents, wall House Republicans on Thursday grilled Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas about the department’s lack of funding for additional Border Patrol agents and construction of a wall at the southern border, as Mayorkas instead emphasized the role of technology. Mayorkas was testifying at the House Homeland Security Committee about the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 budget request for DHS, which he said would include $665 million in investments toward modernizing land ports of entry and $47 million to invest in detection capabilities in addition to investments in border surveillance technology.

Court fight over Labor’s future could decide the next PM ($) — Tom Minear (Herald Sun): “The action has been a year in the making, since Anthony Albanese and Daniel Andrews orchestrated a federal takeover of Labor’s Victorian branch, in response to the branch-stacking scandal that engulfed factional powerbroker Adem Somyurek. Depending on their attachment to Somyurek, most Labor people accepted the need for change. What was controversial was the scale of the intervention, which suspended the voting rights of grassroots members and affiliated unions until 2023.”

Albanese can take leaf out of Abbott playbook ($) — Niki Savva (The Australian): “Imagine if Tony Abbott had been opposition leader during a pandemic and there had been yet another quarantine leak from an ill-equipped hotel in one state that then led to a lockdown in another. If Abbott had been leader last Thursday, after the bell rang to suspend parliament for a week, he would have flown to Adelaide the next day for a doorstop outside the Playford Medi-Hotel, where one guest received an unwelcome gift he then passed on to others.”
