The Biden administration is relying on a contested Trump-era policy as it disperses thousands of Haitian migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border near the small South Texas city of Del Rio. Much to the dismay of migrant advocates, the Department of Homeland Security is invoking the public health law known as Title 42 to quickly take Haitians into custody and fly them back to their troubled homeland, denying them an opportunity to make a claim to stay in the U.S. by seeking asylum. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Monday that most of the Haitians removed from the Del Rio encampment have been expelled under the authority of Title 42, angering human rights activists and others who had hoped to see the policy ended by an administration that has otherwise sought to reverse much of Trump’s immigration agenda.

Immerse yourself in whiskey. That’s pretty much the requirement when entering Great Jones Distilling Company, Manhattan’s first whiskey distillery in 100 years. The 28,000 square foot complex was six years in the making and faced many obstacles along the way – including just finding the property itself - says project manager Andrew Merinoff.“In order to understand what distilling is in New York City, you have to understand the zoning that it takes to be a distillery. So, we're in an M1-5 zone in which there are only 122 buildings in New York City that allow that operation. We know that because we saw every single one of them.”At the heart of Great Jones, where the magic happens: a 500-gallon pot, or still, where the whiskey is distilled - or, simply put, where a harder alcohol is made from a lower alcohol base. But while having that much alcohol in the middle of a four-story New York City building may seem dicey, Merinoff says not to worry. “The room that this still is encased in is completely explosion proof. The air can be sucked out of it in 90 seconds, making it one of the safest distilling rooms in the world." Great Jones is Manhattan’s first whiskey distillery since the days of prohibition, when the sale of alcohol was outlawed across the U.S. It’s the brainchild of Juan Domingo Beckmann – who, despite coming from the family that owns Jose Cuervo tequila – is tapping into the recent whiskey craze, with bourbon, in particular, surging in popularity. The distillery includes a cocktail bar, restaurant, event space and, of course, a speakeasy.

Weeks before the World Bank scrapped its flagship Doing Business rankings following a damning independent probe, a group of external advisers recommended an overhaul of the rankings to limit countries' efforts to "manipulate their scores." An 84-page review, written by senior academics and economists, including the former Colombian finance minister, was published on the bank's website on Monday, about three weeks after it was submitted to World Bank chief economist Carmen Reinhart. The World Bank on Thursday said it would cancel the "Doing Business" series https://www.reuters.com/business/sustainable-business/world-bank-kills-business-climate-report-after-ethics-probe-cites-undue-pressure-2021-09-16 on country business climates, citing internal audits and an independent probe that found senior World Bank leaders, including Kristalina Georgieva, who now heads the International Monetary Fund, pressured staff to alter data to favor China during her time as World Bank CEO.
