Frustrated by delay, resettlement agencies call on Biden to sign off on refugee admissions cap

President Joe Biden in his first days in office issued an executive order seeking to put the U.S. on track to welcome 125,000 refugees in the first full fiscal year of his administration, from a historic low of 15,000 set by the previous occupant of the Oval Office. Until that first full fiscal year, Biden also proposed quadrupling the current fiscal year’s cap, to 62,500 refugees.  Daily Kos’ Laura Clawson noted at the time that Biden’s subsequent visit to the State Department “sen[t] an unmistakable message ... that priorities have changed in the federal government.” But two months later, CNN reports that Biden has yet to sign the presidential determination, which would begin to put his plan into motion. Lacking that final signature, hundreds of refugees in recent weeks have seen their flights to the U.S. cancelled.

‘Maybe it’s a dietary thing,’ director says of white children being fed before Black children

Racism is a pandemic that has been present in the U.S. far before COVID-19. Black people have been victims of not only police brutality and state-sanctioned violence for generations, but other forms of racism including incidents that target children. A day care in Georgia has been called out for racism after videos shared online depicted white children being prioritized for lunch.  An online livestream video depicted Black children at Roswell day care waiting to be fed as white children had already received their meals. The incident was reported by a family who saw the footage while checking on their 2-year-old child at the Kids ‘R' Kids Roswell location, CBS News reported.

Officer who killed Daunte Wright couldn't tell a Taser from a gun despite 26 years of experience

The police officer who shot and killed 20-year-old Daunte Wright has been identified as Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department who recently served as the head of its police union. In body camera video, Potter can be heard shouting, “I’ll tase you,” and “Taser Taser Taser,” before instead shooting Wright with her gun. She is currently on administrative leave. The medical examiner concluded that Wright “died of a gunshot wound of the chest and manner of death is homicide.” Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott has called for Potter to be fired, saying: “My position is that we cannot afford to make mistakes that lead to the loss of life of other people in our profession.”

Manchin helps Republicans foster another lie—corporate tax cuts create jobs

Senate Republicans, with an assist from Democrat Joe Manchin, are doing their level best to insist that it would destroy the economy to repeal the 2017 Trump tax scam, and that spending now on keeping all of the systems for the whole goddamned nation from crumbling in to the ground in the next decade is dangerously radical and expensive. On both fronts, they're full of crap. And people who are much better at doing that economics stuff than me say so. Manchin, the self-appointed king of the Senate, has been proclaiming lots of stuff about how the Senate should work lately, much of it ill-informed and all of it delusional. Like the assertion that there are 10 Republicans who would love to pass President Joe Biden's priorities if President Joe Biden was just a little be nicer to them. And let them keep all their tax cuts. Or maybe Manchin is projecting, because Manchin wants to keep that tax cut. His proclamation at the beginning of Biden's first infrastructure week was that raising the corporate tax rate from 21% to 28% is just not going to work for him, but 25% might, and «If I don't vote to get on it, it's not going anywhere.» Not that he is relishing this moment in the sun or anything.
