vetting of refugees slows u.s.-australia accord


canberra, australia—a refugee resettlement deal between australia and the u.s. that was imperiled by president donald trump’s rise to power is continuing apace but will take months to implement due to stringent vetting procedures, a senior australian official said on tuesday.immigration minister peter dutton also said australia is still negotiating with other countries to take some refugees, a task given greater urgency since mr. trump signaled disapproval of the deal made by his predecessor. australia is holding about...






use memorial day to honor fallen soldiers


this memorial day for some will simply be another holiday to get away, relax or whatever. for most of us, we will consider it an honor to remember those who have fallen in service to our country and will salute their memory. i am deeply saddened, however, by the growing number of people who have no concept of the station in the world that america occupies.far too many have lost respect for us, and i’ll never understand why. my guess is a lack of history lessons and too many who have immigrated here with a complete unwillingness to assimilate into our democracy. don’t doubt me when i say that immigration is a good thing. we welcome those who are willing to not forget their heritage but who understand that they are now americans.god bless america. jack marklehollisterkeith wilson (letters, m






trump's revised travel ban is no less misguided and self-defeating than his prev


the new travel banpresident trumpsigned monday is no less misguided and damaging to those trying to travel to the u.s., or to those seeking refuge from war-torn regions of the world, than the original. the two new executive orders implementing the ban also show that trump learned little from the policy debacle of the first go-round. the courts will decide whether he has fixed all of the legal shortcomings with this new, narrower version (the original was put on hold by several federal judges), but it still will disrupt the lives of thousands of people while doing nothing to advance u.s. national security interests. in fact, it feeds into propaganda by islamic extremists that the western world is at war with islam. none of that has changed with this scaled-back version.the new orders suspen






inside the u.s. vetting system trump wants to replace


as the trump administration readies a new “extreme vetting” executive order that is expected to ban people from certain countries in order to give agencies time to review u.s. vetting procedures, many experts and former officials argue that the screening process is already rigorous.the revised travel ban, to be released this week, is again expected to bar entry for people from the seven countries in the president’s original order: iraq, iran, syria, somalia, sudan, libya and yemen. the 9th circuit court of appeals ruled earlier this month that the 90-day ban on people from those nations would not be reinstated after it was suspended by a lower court. it’s unclear whether the new ban will again attempt to block all refugees from the u.s. for 120 days and block syrian refugees indefinitely.p






state health agency settles with federal government for $7m


madison, wis. — state health officials have agreed to pay the federal government nearly $7 million to settle allegations that they artificially decreased food stamp error rates to collect bonuses.federal prosecutors issued a news release thursday saying the state department of health services, acting on a consulting firm's advice, implemented new procedures that resulted in the agency over-scrutinizing food stamp claims. that in turn lowered the agency's error rates, resulting in more bonuses from the u.s. department of agriculture between 2009 and 2011.prosecutors called the vetting procedures improper and biased.a dhs spokeswoman had no immediate comment.

civil liberties groups urge dhs to not require log-in info as part of "extreme v


civil liberties and human rights groups are urging homeland security secretary john kelly not to require people applying for u.s. visas to provide log-in information to their social media accounts. “we urge you to reject any proposal to require anyone to provide log-in information to their online accounts as a condition of entry into the united states. demanding log-in information is a direct assault on fundamental rights and would weaken, rather than promote, national security,” the groups wrote in a letter to kelly on friday. kelly had suggested at a congressional committee hearing in early february that dhs would consider such a requirement. as part of the revised travel ban unveiled this week, president trump has directed the administration to review and enhance its screening procedure
