The Twitter page which published the video is still active, casting doubt over whether the clip played a direct part in the clampdown of the group s social media presence.

Under the policy, families found to be crossing into the U.S. illegally are separated, with parents taken to federal jail and children into the custody of the U.S. Health and Human Services Department. As an immigrant, I know the magnetic power of America's greatness. As a former border Governor, I know the importance of securing our border and fixing our absurdly broken immigration system. As an American, I know that kids shouldn't be pawns while the "adults" figure it out, Schwarzenegger wrote.

  • Animals Becoming Nocturnal To Avoid Being Around Humans - Newsweek

    Many animals fear humans: we can be large, noisy, novel, and dangerous, and animals often go out of their way to avoid encountering us, ecologist at the University of California, Berkeley and study author Kaitlyn Gaynor told Newsweek. But it s becoming more and more challenging for wildlife to seek out human free spaces, as the human population grows and our footprint expands across the planet, Gaynor continued. It appears that animals are instead adjusting their activity patterns to avoid humans in time, if not space.
