A recent surge in arrests along the Mexico border has been partly driven by soaring numbers of migrants trying to enter the United States again and again, as emergency pandemic measures that rapidly "expel" most detainees have had the unintended consequence of allowing them to try repeat illegal crossings, according to two Department of Homeland Security officials with knowledge of the unpublished statistics.

The Pine Gulch Fire 15 miles north of Grand Junction and 19 miles west of Parachute, Colorado has been very active for the last three days, spreading to the west, southeast, and especially to the north (see map below). The growth on August 7 was described as explosive, and at 7 a.m. Sunday morning a large smoke column was forming, which is unusual for that time of day. The fire has burned 23,882 acres. Garfield County issued an evacuation order for residences on CR 202 and a pre-evacuation order for all residences on county roads 204, 207, 209, and Clear Creek Road...

The Camaraderie of Country Women. by Julie Carter. There are many women who inspire me to write about a lifestyle that sets them apart from the majority; one that finds understanding only from those that share the same. When they tell me their stories, I use their experiences along with mine to weave a word tapestry depicting the lives of cowgirls, ranch wives and country women. These are strong, independent females who can ride, rope, cook, shoot and laugh even when it takes a special effort to find something humorous in the moment. They clean up quite tolerably for polite company or a trip to town and often surprise the gentry with their ability to carry on an engaging conversation on just about any topic. We like to think there is a callin.

Cómo estás, Isaias. Of Floods and Men. Double Clutching. By Stephen L. Wilmeth. Kevin and Cathie drove home to Leesburg from the Carolinas in the shared path with Isaias, that unpronounceable politically correct and racially named hurricane. The conversation detailing the experience began with a solemn family announcement, but what it was like being under such a genuine soaker couldn’t be avoided.

Cows are supposedly “dumb” animals and yet I have learned a lot from them, such as…. 1. Don’t shoot the bull. 2. If someone wants to load you up and take you to town put up a big fight. There is danger lurking there. 3. When your offspring become of age and leave home no amount of bawling will bring them back. 4. Piercings, notches, tattoos and brands hurt and make it easier for BIG Brother to identify you. 5. The way to acquire a small fortune in the cattle business is to start with a large one. 6. Don’t allow yourself to be driven by an unruly mob. Especially don’t get stampeded. You could get hurt and it will only result in you going round and round in circles. 7. Hogs have no place on a cow ranch. 8. Stay close to your youngsters at all

...Here we sit 45 years later and not much has changed. Today less than 1.3% of the American population, (and 7% in Canada), is involved in production agriculture. We, who are left with the responsibility of feeding the ever-growing population that now stands at 331 million people. We do it. It is lots of work. We have an enormous amount of scientific, technical, medical, and mechanical research and dedication looking over our shoulder as we break the ground, plant the wheat, brand the calf or drive the truck. Imagine a ‘Nóngmín’ bent over in a rice field a thousand years before Christ came, not much different than a farmer bent over a furrow, feeling the soil today. What is our motive…inspiration? Do we say, “We’re feeding the world”? “I’l.

The East Mountain Cowboy Church is calling the event it hosted Saturday morning near Edgewood a “protest.” Breakaway roping is only one of the events that had more than 100 cowboys and cowgirls saddling up, trying to earn a buckle. Some were competing for the first time in a while. “This is my first rodeo since everything started, so me and my horses are trying to get back on track,” said Taylor White a 17-year-old competing in breakaway roping, and barrel racing. The East Mountain Cowboy Church hosted the rodeo on a sixty-acre lot in Edgewood. The lot was empty until this week when members of the church built the arena. Pastor Curt Miller says the rodeo is a protest to how the state is responding to the pandemic. “We don’t like some of the.

The ramp on my van was becoming unreliable. You never knew if it was going to work properly. So in to the shop it went. Unfortunately, the van is so old they no longer make the parts and I had to purchase a whole new unit (just over $3700). My daughter, Sevon, picked up the van Thursday and then took it back with my newest power wheelchair. Why? Because my newest wheelchair, which I've had for over a year, had never been fitted so it would hook into the lock box. Yes, I know it was stupid to travel around with an unlocked wheelchair, but I hadn't found the time to get it done and...sometimes I just do stupid things for the hell of it. I was prepared, though. I had my previous power chair powered up and ready to go as my backup. Hadn't been

A more than 1,300-foot underground passageway stretching from Arizona to Mexico was recently discovered — with the feds calling it “the most sophisticated tunnel in US history.” The unfinished tunnel — which ran from San Luis, Arizona, to neighboring San Luis Rio Colorado in Mexico — had a ventilation system, water lines, electrical wiring, a rail system and extensive reinforcement, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday. “This appears to be the most sophisticated tunnel in U.S. history, and certainly the most sophisticated I’ve seen in my career,” said Carl E. Landrum, acting chief patrol agent with the Border Patrol’s Yuma Sector. Feds unearthed the tunnel after finding a sinkhole along the US-Mexico border in mid-July. Border

Four executives from two Mississippi poultry processing plants have been indicted on federal charges tied to one of the largest workplace immigration raids in the U.S. in the past decade. U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst and the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Matt Albence, announced the indictments as the documents were unsealed Thursday. Their announcement happened a day before the one-year anniversary of the raids in which 680 people were arrested at seven poultry plants in central Mississippi. Hurst and Albence also scolded journalists for reports that focused on the arrests separating children from immigrant parents who were sent to detention centers. “If a parent puts their child in that position where they commit.

Mike Cook. This year’s New Mexico U.S. Senate race pits a Democrat with extensive government service against a Republican who is running for office for the first time. There’s also a Libertarian in the race. ...The three are vying for New Mexico’s Fall Senate seat, so named because former secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior Albert B. Fall was the first person to hold it when the state’s two U.S. Senate seats were created in March 1912, two months after New Mexico achieved statehood. Fall and the state’s other first-ever U.S. senator, Thomas B. Catron, were appointed by the New Mexico Legislature, Most U.S. senators were chosen by state legislatures until after ratification of the 17 th amendment to the U.S. Constitution in April.

Dan McLaughlin. Politically charged prosecutions — even ones that are thoroughly justified — often end badly for the justice system. So it appears with the federal prosecutions of Cliven Bundy and his sons. The government , resulting in a jury acquittal in 2016. Today, of Bundy’s own federal indictment (as well as that of several of his co-defendants) on the grounds that the government had waited until the middle of trial to disclose information that would have helped Bundy’s case, in violation of Brady v. Maryland. The misconduct was so severe and prejudicial to the Bundy clan’s case that the court barred the government from bringing the same charges again. The opinion was written by Jay Bybee, a George W. Bush appointee, but joined by judg.

Mountain bikers scaling slickrock, hopeful hunters scouting for elk, footsore hikers pitching tents in pine forests—they're the activities typically associated with public lands. But as the 2020 election approaches, much of the action on federal lands is playing out in the polished halls of Washington, a political drama set in motion in June when the White House announced its had chosen veteran lands lawyer William Perry Pendley to permanently lead the Bureau of Land Management, the federal agency that oversees one acre of every ten in the United States. With the election just three months away, putting Pendley in that role is an election selling point for conservative westerners who favor his provocative record as a Sagebrush Rebel and eag.

In the 2017 report that rolled back Bears Ears National Monument, then-Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke tacked on a footnote saying that a little-known swath of land in Montana — the Badger-Two Medicine — was worthy of monument status. A staggeringly beautiful landscape bounded by Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness and the Blackfeet Reservation, the Badger-Two Medicine is part of the traditional homeland of the Blackfeet Nation. It’s home to many Blackfeet origin stories, and Tribal members still practice traditional ceremonies there. It’s also important habitat for denning grizzlies and their cubs, rare lynx, wolverines and some of the last genetically pure cutthroat trout on the planet. Now part of the Lewis and Clark Nationa.

There are 2.6 million miles of pipelines crisscrossing the US that will one day retire. Even in their afterlives, these zombie pipelines will be able to spill toxic materials. It’s happened. There’s also the risk of a pipe one day rising from its grave, exposed by floodwaters or erosion. Or, devoid of oil and gas that once coursed through them, they might accidentally drain bodies of water or do the opposite — pollute them. The COVID-19 pandemic rattled the fossil fuel industry, which saw oil prices turn negative for the first time ever. The industry will also need to grapple with the looming climate crisis and environmental campaigns that have won recent, high-profile victories against the Dakota Access, Atlantic Coast, and Keystone XL pip.

America contains acres upon acres of undeveloped, privately held land. Nothing has been built on this land, and no one is farming it or living on it. Its owners might have set it aside as an investment, or for future ventures, or just in case. But. suggests another effective use for all these acres: leave them alone, in order to help protect some of the country’s rarest animals. The United States is home to 160 species of endangered mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles. “Just like every person needs a home, all of these species need a home,” says John P. Draper, a PhD candidate at Utah State University and an author of the new paper. This need is often best met by a protected area, which can offer respite from hunting, habitat destruction.

New York’s attorney general took action Thursday to dissolve the National Rifle Association after an 18-month investigation she said found evidence that the gun-rights group is “fraught with fraud and abuse.” Attorney General Letitia James said in the lawsuit that she found financial misconduct totaling millions of dollars and that it lost more than $64 million over a three-year period. The lawsuit also alleges that top NRA executives abused charitable donations for their own personal gain, including funding family donations. Executives also awarded contracts to friends and family members, the lawsuit claims. Dissolving the NRA is the most aggressive action Ms. James could take against the nonprofit organization, which falls under her juris.
