Texas Rep August Pfluger has criticized what he called the Biden Administration’s “weak border policies” in a series of tweets posted during his visit to Del Rio on September 18.The border “crisis”, he said, had “reached a boiling point.” Del Rio officials, Pfluger said, were “not equipped to handle nearly 15,000 migrants pouring into their community.”Reports said the migrants were from several countries, but that the majority were from Haiti.In response to the situation, the Department of Homeland Security said it was sending a “surge” of 400 agents to Del Rio. The department also said it would be providing “additional transportation to accelerate the pace and increase the capacity of removal flights to Haiti and other destinations in the hemisphere.”Pfluger said these measures were “not nearly enough to tamper the chaotic situation.” Credit: Rep.

Hong Kong held its first-ever political race since Beijing changed its electoral system, to ensure only 'patriots' govern the city.Five polling stations across Hong Kong were heavily guarded by police, while pro-democracy candidates were nearly absent from the ballot.Sunday's (September 19) polls saw less than than 5,000 people cast ballots - mostly from pro-establishment circles - to vote for candidates in the Election Committee.That's a 1,500-strong body that picks Hong Kong's next leader - the Chief Executive, next March, and fields 40 of its own as lawmakers in the 90-seat legislature. The electoral overhaul, announced by Beijing and passed in Hong Kong in May, significantly reduces democratic representation in institutions, and introduces a new vetting mechanism for candidates and winners.The make-up of the electoral college itself has also changed, scrapping memberships for community-level district councillors, dominated by democrats, while adding more than 500 seats for pro-China business, political and grassroots groups.Hong Kong's current leader, Carrie Lam, said on Sunday that the city's electoral framework was now improved. Changes to Hong Kong's political system is the latest in a string of moves that have placed the international financial hub on an authoritarian path, including the national security law that punishes anything Beijing deems as subversion, secession, terrorism or collusion with foreign forces.Most prominent pro-democracy activists and politicians are now in jail or have fled.

France would have known Australia had “deep and grave concerns” that a submarine fleet the French were building would not meet Australian needs, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Sunday after the contract's cancellation set off a diplomatic crisis. France accused Australia of concealing its intentions to back out of the 90 billion Australian dollar ($66 billion) contract for French majority state-owned Naval Group to build 12 conventional diesel-electric submarines. President Joe Biden revealed last week a new alliance including Australia and Britain that would deliver an Australian fleet of at least eight nuclear-powered submarines.
