It’s Not A Violation Of Posse Comitatus If We Are Preparing For War With Mexico, I Guess

Posse Comitatus is supposed to prevent the U.S. military from engaging in police actions on U.S. soil. There are lots of good reasons for this, but mainly it’s military-takeover repellent. When the police arrest you, there is process. When the Marines arrest you, you need a prisoner exchange to get you out.

I’ve Been Reporting on MS-13 for a Year. Here Are the 5

The gang is not invading the country. They’re not posing as fake families. They’re not growing. To stop them, the government needs to understand them. Congressional Research Service said that it could be misleading to call MS-13 a transnational criminal organization at all, because it has no central leader or global ambitions. The gang is made up of sometimes competing cliques, often led by teenagers most interested in wielding power over other young people in their immediate circles.

Carrier Sends Jobs to Mexico, Workers Say Trump ‘Misled’ Them

The president promised to save 1,100 Indiana jobs, but the company never agreed and now six months later, they’re beginning layoffs. Inside the plant, some workers were skeptical. Carrier had promised layoffs, which Trump glossed over in his claim to save over 1,000 jobs.On Monday, these workers were proven right. Though Trump struck a deal with Carrier promising them $7 million in local business incentives if they kept their Indianapolis plant open, the heating and cooling company warned that it would still outsource a number of Indiana jobs to Mexico, regardless. But the Trump campaign still championed the deal as a win for American workers. This week, the Carrier announced it will cut 632 jobs from its Indiana plant by the end of the year.

Mexican government ‘categorically rejects’ attempts to scare off investors but effects seem clear as future Ford plant – and job hopes – are left an empty shell. “It’s going to have a huge impact on the local community,” said Eaves, calculating the loss to the economy could run into the hundreds of millions or billions of over the next five years, as manufacturing, contracting and indirect jobs all fall short of plans.
