PORTLAND, Ore. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A bill that gives healthcare providers the right to starve mentally ill patients and those with dementia advanced in the Oregon Senate Monday.
SB494 passed out of the Senate Rules Committee with certain amendments. Colm Willis testified in front of the committee that the bill, even as amended, still gives healthcare providers the legal right to withhold food and water from these patients and against their will in some instances.
Officials claim that Escobar's aides, who have sought interviews with thousands of migrants who were sent back to Mexico, are escorting the migrants back to the port of entry and are lying to CBP officials, telling them the migrants don't speak Spanish despite the fact that they spoke Spanish to the officials at an earlier date.
A senior union official shared evidence supporting their claims with the Examiner and said, “What we believe is happening is Veronica Escobar’s office is going … to basically second-guess and obstruct work already done by the Border Patrol.”
Under the "remain in Mexico" policy, "anyone returned must be fluent in Spanish because they may have to reside in Mexico up to five years until a U.S. federal judge decides their asylum claim."
The Washington Examiner reports that, according to the National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several CBP agents, Escobar's staff is trying to find migrants that have been returned from El Paso, Texas to Mexico "under the 'remain in Mexico' policy, then coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them return to the U.S."
Where will it end. Now we are being condemned because of our name.

Democratic members of Congress want taxpayers to subsidize their housing, signing onto legislation that would allow them to deduct living expenses for members of the House of Representatives.
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D., Miss.) introduced a bill that would ban members of Congress from sleeping in their offices and would change the tax code to allow House members to deduct their spending on housing in D.C. up to $3,000. The deduction would not apply to senators.

My response to the Democrats' reparations scam is, "Please stop!" Please stop telling black Americans that we are crippled, inferior and are helpless children who can only succeed via government handouts, lowered standards and special concessions. Just stop it!...
I love this line from the movie, "Blazing Saddles." "We don't need no stinkin' badges." I say to Democrats, "We don't need no stinkin' reparations!"

Al Sharpton has come under scrutiny after it was established that he owed more than four and a half million dollars in back taxes. The reason that he feels that he doesn’t have to pay those taxes is the same reason as every other bad thing that happens to a person in this country. It’s his skin color that is to blame.
