wall to wall:

    A top Goldman Sachs dealmaker is leaving the firm after almost three decades to run Texas computer tycoon Michael Dell’s investment firm. In a move that shocked many insiders at the Wall Street powerhouse, Gregg Lemkau, Goldman’s co-head of global investment banking, is stepping down to become chief executive at MSD Partners, a firm that manages $15 billion including some of Dell’s fortune, and which has plans to grow. That’s despite the fact that Lemkau, 51, was known to be close to Goldman Chief Executive David Solomon and his No. 2, chief operating officer John Waldron. Having stepped into Solomon’s role running the investment bank after Solomon took the No. 2 role under former CEO Lloyd Blankfein, Lemkau had even been seen as a potential successor to Solomon, alongside Waldron. That succession picture became a lot less clear in September when Solomon promoted 43-year-old Goldman exec Stephanie Cohen to be...
    The constructed wall on the southern border of the United States has surpassed 400 miles. On Monday, Rodney Scott, the head of U.S. Border Patrol, revealed on Twitter that 402 miles of the border wall have been completed, in addition to 249 miles being under construction and 87 miles under pre-construction.

During the campaign, he vowed for a tougher approach to limiting illegal immigrants from entering the country. According to the White House, apprehensions of those entering the country illegally fell by 70% between May 2019 and August 2020. U.S. law enforcement also seized over 100,000 pounds...
    Wall Street’s sheriff is hanging up his spurs. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton announced Monday morning that he will be stepping down at the end of 2020, ending a three-and-half year term that saw the SEC collect $14 billion in fines from Wall Street wrongdoers. That figure includes the $4.68 billion that the commission has collected in 2020 so far, already a record for a fiscal year. “Working alongside the incredibly talented and driven women and men of the SEC has been the highlight of my career,” Clayton said in a statement. “I am proud of our collective efforts to advance each part of the SEC’s tripartite mission, always with an eye on the interests of our Main Street investors. Clayton, 54, is a former partner at New York law firm Sullivan & Cromwell who represented clients like Bill Ackman, Paul Tudor Jones and Goldman Sachs. He...

Loeffler unleashes onslaught against Warnock in Georgia race for Senate control Stocks open higher as S&P 500 and Dow look to notch weekly gains © Marketwatch MARKET PULSE U.S. stocks rose at the start of Friday's session as Wall Street looks to put a cap on a turbulent week of trading that saw a rebound in the least-favored stocks during the pandemic at the expense of so-called growth shares.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Prosecutors said Thursday opposed a Colorado man’s request to move his trial out of New York, a legal maneuver that would separate him from a high-profile co-defendant: Steve Bannon. Prosecutors matched every one of Timothy Shea’s arguments to move the trial with a reason why it should remain in New York. Timothy Shea (credit: CBS) The prosecutors wrote in a submission in Manhattan federal court that moving Shea’s trial would put a costly burden on the government and the courts and inconvenience witnesses that include investors he ripped off. Shea has pleaded not guilty, as have his three co-defendants, including Bannon, Trump’s former chief strategist. The men were charged with lying to investors to unlawfully raise over $25 million for the “We Build The Wall” campaign, a quest to help fund a wall along the nation’s southern border.

    Wall Street is moving past the uncertainty of election season and, if history is a guide, investors can indeed breathe a sigh of relief. Stocks typically post solid gains following an election, no matter which party controls the White House or Congress. On average the S&P 500 gains 8.1% in the year after the election, according to data from the research firm CFRA. Former vice-president Joe Biden is now president-elect, although President Donald Trump has yet to concede. Meanwhile, Congress appears likely to remain split, though that depends on the outcome of two Senate run-off elections in Georgia. The results leave financial markets looking at what apparently will be a divided government in the new year. That scenario is typically favorable to Wall Street, although the gains aren’t as fruitful as when one party controls both the White House and Congress, according to the CFRA data, which goes back to...

    (CNN Business)While the coronavirus pandemic certainly caused some mayhem in the markets and hurt plenty of companies' balance sheets this year, those working on Wall Street are still likely to see bonuses in 2020. But the payouts for many financial services industry workers are likely to be smaller than in 2019, according to a new analysis from Wall Street compensation consulting firm Johnson Associates."The pandemic is wreaking havoc on many parts of the U.S. economy this year, and the financial services industry is no exception," said Alan Johnson, managing director of Johnson Associates. "While many industry segments have bounced back, the majority of professionals at traditional and alternative asset firms as well as retail and commercial bankers will see smaller bonuses."As a jumping off point for comparison, the average bonus paid to those in the securities industry topped $164,000 last year, according to the New York City Comptroller's Office. 66%...
    Joe Biden’s team plans to abandon agreements with Central American countries that created a legal wall against global migrants, according to CBS News. The Biden team also hopes to have U.S. embassies fly foreign children to their migrant parents throughout the United States, according to the November 11 report. The embassy process would bypass the coyotes and cartels and allow illegal populations to burrow into U.S. society — much to the disadvantage of less-skilled Americans. The CBS report said: A source familiar with the Biden team’s planning said the incoming administration will withdraw from the three bilateral agreements Mr. Trump brokered with Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras that allow the U.S. to send rejected asylum-seekers to those countries and have them seek refuge there. Trump’s diplomatic deals allow U.S. border agencies to easily and cheaply fly asylum-claiming migrants from Latin American, India, or Africa back to the safe countries they crossed...
    Homeless New Yorkers who have been sheltered at an Upper West Side hotel as part of a controversial plan to prevent the spread of COVID-19 claim they were offered an unspecified sum of money and food if they agreed to move out. In court papers filed in Manhattan on Tuesday, one of the homeless being sheltered in the Lucerne Hotel said he and others were approached with offers of food and money in exchange for signing a pledge saying they wanted to leave. In late October, Elihu Hesterbey says an unnamed woman offered him cash if he would ‘sign papers saying that I no longer want to live at the Lucerne and would prefer to move to the Wall Street area,’ according to the affidavit cited by the New York Daily News. The court document indicated that Hesterbey ‘politely explained that I was not willing to sign anything.’ Protesters...

    President Donald Trump resumed his usual claims of pending victory Tuesday in an election that has been called for his opponent, Joe Biden, since Saturday.  “WE WILL WIN!” the soon-exiting president tweeted optimistically and with little regard for reality. Biden has earned 290 electoral votes to Trump's 214 and secured more than 76 million votes in total to Trump's less than 72 million, according to the Associated Press. And to make matters worse for the persistent yet sore loser, the same international observers his administration invited to scope out alleged systematic election fraud found no such sign of deceit, according to a preliminary report The Wall Street Journal obtained. That means no such glimmer of hope for Trump.  The Organization of American States sent a team of 28 experts from 13 countries to polling places in Georgia, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, and the District of Columbia on Election Day to monitor the polls from opening to close. The...

    DALLAS – Officials from Nasdaq and other major stock exchanges will meet with Gov. Greg Abbott on Nov. 20 in Austin to discuss a possible move from New Jersey to Texas, nbcdfw.com and the Dallas Morning News reported. The meeting comes on the heels of the exchanges threatening to move their trading platforms out of New Jersey, the report said. Abbott and other Texas officials plan to boast the state’s business-friendly environment during the meeting. “Texas continues to be the premier economic destination in the country, attracting more leading businesses than any other state,” spokeswoman Renae Eze said in a statement to The Dallas Morning News. “The governor looks forward to meeting with Nasdaq and showcasing Texas' business-friendly environment, skilled workforce, robust infrastructure, and low taxes, all of which foster greater economic growth in the Lone Star State.” According to The Dallas Morning News, Abbott’s office has been talking with...
    New York (CNN Business)The Trump campaign is waging a legal war over the 2020 presidential election results. Wall Street, on the other hand, is already moving on.Even though President Donald Trump is promising to fight and has not conceded, there is little doubt on Wall Street that Joe Biden will become the 46th president of the United States on January 20.While it took a few days for the election to be called, we do not view this as a contested election," Raymond James analysts Ed Mills and Chris MeekinsTrump's flurry of lawsuits is being viewed as a sideshow, experts say. The real focus among investors, analysts and market strategists is on Pfizer's blockbuster vaccine announcement, the makeup of Biden's agenda and cabinet, and expectations that Republicans will retain control of the US Senate despite runoff races in Georgia. "For most investors, the perspective is that the election has been settled,"...
    Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan warned that President Trump’s “unprecedented success” in curbing illegal immigration “all goes away” when President-elect Joe Biden takes office, saying, “It's terrible what's about to happen to this border.” “President Trump has had unprecedented success on this border,” Homan told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday. He added that “illegal immigration is down between 60 and 80%,” which he noted is “unprecedented by any president I’ve worked for, starting with Ronald Reagan.” Homan pointed out that Trump achieved that success “despite the fact that Congress fought him every step of the way.” “No one has had this success and it all goes away under a Biden administration,” he said.   “We lose the border under a Biden administration because he made promises to stop deportations, end ICE detention, get free health care. Who wouldn't want to come to the greatest country on Earth if you know you can’t be arrested, you won’t be detained, you won’t be deported...
    London (CNN Business)A return to the office, packed flights and full nightclubs may seem like a distant future. But Wall Street has a new message for its clients: It's time to start thinking about life after the pandemic.What's happening: Many riskier assets skyrocketed on Monday after Pfizer (PFE) and BioNTech said early results indicate their vaccine candidate is more than 90% effective. That raised hopes that vaccines could help normal life resume in 2021, driving a huge rebound in economic activity."The strong results from the Pfizer vaccine were better than most expected and [mean] we could be opening back up sooner than expected," said Ryan Detrick, LPL Financial's chief market strategist.The optimism is pushing asset managers to think about making big changes to their portfolios. Before long, they warn, stocks that perform well when people are stuck at home — say, Zoom (ZM) or Netflix (NFLX) — could fall out...
    Trump still lost, though. Donald Trump will not be sworn in again on Jan. 20, 2021, after Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election, with Biden winning millions more votes and securing at least 279 Electoral College votes. But Trump and his allies are refusing to accept the election results and continue to make the delusional claim that the race is not over and Trump can still win. The lies in support of this claim are coming from a number of people, including Trump himself, Trump campaign surrogates such as Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Trump's children, and Republican members of Congress.
    YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK (AP) — Mountain climber Emily Harrington has become the fourth person and the first woman to free-climb the face of Yosemite National Park’s El Capitan, a 3000-foot sheer granite wall, in a single day. While most of the country was focused on the results of the U.S. presidential election early Wednesday, the 34-year-old began to scale El Capitan, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday. She reached the top 21 hours, 13 minutes and 51 seconds later. Only three people — all men — have made the free climb in a day. Free climbers use ropes to catch them if they fall but not to help them ascend. Rock climber Emily Harrington in Yosemite.

    Washington’s ‘oldest’ house started out in Massachusetts This Is the Fast-Food Chain With the Most Locations in America Wall Street Wants to Be Sure Biden Can Keep Warren’s Army at Bay (Bloomberg) -- Wall Street has made its peace with a Joe Biden victory, taking comfort in his decades-long political career in which moderation is a prevailing trait. But it’s nervous about his more liberal allies. Finance executives will be closely watching how Biden handles the coming internal Democratic fight between centrists and progressives that threatens to increase regulation and dent profits. Firms are counting on his business-friendly inner circle -- a group that includes long-time Democratic stategists, corporate lawyers and former lobbyists -- to exert the most influence in selecting nominees for agencies like the Treasury Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission that manage the economy and police the markets. Middle-of-the-road candidates have a key advantage: They’ll...

    President Trump made building a wall on the southern border to stop the flow of illegal immigration one of the his top priorities of his term in office. Now, with a considerable stretch built, what happens to the wall when President-elect Joe Biden takes office? “Build the wall” was one of the signature campaign promises of Trump’s 2016 White House bid, and after a number of battles with Congress and in the courts on funding, construction increased dramatically in 2020. In January, there were 100 miles of wall built, and that increased to nearly 400 miles by October. The administration is on track to build 450 miles by the end of the year, and has the funding ready for further construction.

You can transform the look and feel of your space with the simple addition of a piece of wall art, like a framed print or poster. Of course, finding the right piece is easier said than done.

    New York (CNN Business)During the 2020 campaign, President Donald Trump sought to undercut Joe Biden's popularity by calling him "Sleepy Joe." But on Wall Street, a return to stability and predictability in Washington -- which the industry expects Biden would bring -- would be welcomed. The chaotic nature of the Trump era has left investors constantly on the edge of their seats. Whether a verbal assault on the Federal Reserve chairman or a sudden decision to lob tariffs on China or an attack on a major American company like General Motors, there hasn't been a dull moment.If the presidency goes to Biden, a conventional politician with 40 years of experience in Washington, he is expected to govern with the kind of steadiness that investors crave. That could reduce uncertainty for markets, especially in key areas such as trade policy, foreign relations and negotiations with Congress on ways to revive the...

    The Washington Wizards were unimpressive last season, despite a valiant effort by Bradley Beal. He averaged 30.5 points and 6.1 assists per game, but the Wizards went on to miss the playoffs for the second year in a row. This prompted rumors about Beal asking to be traded away. But GM Tommy Sheppard seemed confident when asked about Beal’s future with the team.

She unexpectedly left GM for digital payments company Stripe in August. Suryadevara said if the monthly sales pace during the second half of the year was 14 million, investors should expect a pretax profit of $4 billion to $5 billion through the fourth quarter. In that scenario, GM expected to generate free cash flow of $7 billion to $9 billion. Suryadevara declined to release official guidance at the time, citing...

The win marks a major shift in what has been a tightening presidential race with President Donald Trump, assuming Biden maintains his lead in handful of other states. The win in the upper Midwestern state handed Biden 10 more electoral votes in his march to a majority threshold of 270 electoral votes needed to win the race.

    Fines are in season on Wall Street — and yes, there just might be a connection with election season. Big banks are lately paying record penalties to US regulators, with insiders blaming the trend on bankers looking to settle scores under a Trump administration rather than risk paying more under a less-friendly Biden White House. In the last few weeks alone, three of the biggest banks have agreed to pay out nearly $5 billion, with Goldman Sachs accounting for the lion’s share after agreeing to pay the feds $2.9 billion for its role in the 1MDB debacle, a years-old case that came to a seemingly sudden conclusion in the final week of October. “Goldman settled because they wanted to pay [Treasury Secretary Steven] Mnuchin$3 billion and not pay Elizabeth Warren $10 billion,” mused one corporate lawyer, referring to speculation that Biden as president might appoint Warren to succeed Mnuchin....

    Joy Behar said Tuesday that her Election Day anxiety was a lot like her first wedding night. Behar explained on ABC’s “The View” that they were similar because when she first got married, she expected something good but prepared herself for disappointment as well.

    Traditional Republican-voting states in the South could possibly flip Democrat in the 2020 presidential election, Fox News contributor Juan Williams said on Election Day. “If you look at Senate races beginning in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, across the Mississippi, and then into Texas, and also the idea that a state like Georgia ‒ as we heard President Obama say ‒ that Georgia is in play. This is radical, this has never been in my lifetime,” Williams told “America's Newsroom” Tuesday. After the 1964 Civil Rights Act, President Lyndon B. Johnson famously said that the South was going to be Republican "for a generation.” “We haven’t seen this and yet here we are today, with the possibility of several of those states not only possibly voting for a Democrat for president, but selecting Democrats for Senate.” WHAT TO KNOW ON ELECTION DAY 2020: CULMINATION OF THE BATTLE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE Williams doubled down...

    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden touted Wall Street’s support for his economic plan in his final pitch to voters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. “In … analysis, not from some liberal think tank, but by Moody’s, a Wall Street firm, projects that my plan will create seven million more jobs and a trillion dollars in more economic growth than anything the president has proposed,” Biden said. Later, Biden claimed President Donald Trump is the voice of Wall Street and Park Avenue billionaires. In actuality, Biden has raked in more than $74 million from Wall Street and eight times the cash from Park Avenue’s elite than what they have given Trump. “Folks, Trump sees the world from Park Avenue, from Wall Street. That’s all he can see. Well, I see it from Scranton where I grew up,” Biden said. “I see it from Pennsylvania and Delaware.” Moody’s Analytics issued the report backing a blue wave...
    WOODLAWN — A project bringing $3 million in upgrades to Jackson Park Outer Harbor is underway to better protect the surrounding area from high water levels, according to the Chicago Park District. The Park District and marina management company Westrec, which manages the harbor, will build a new breakwater at the harbor’s mouth and replace a section of failed barrier wall along its perimeter, a Park District spokesperson said. A sheet pile wall will be built at the harbor’s southern edge near the intersection of Marquette and Lake Shore drives, replacing an existing concrete wall which has suffered “severe damage” from high lake levels.

    The Daily Caller’s Richie McGinniss took an exclusive tour of the southern border, speaking with Black Hawk pilot Ricky about the responsibilities of an Air Marine Agent. Ricky has been a Blackhawk pilot for roughly 10 years, flying 7 of those years with the Navy. Patrolling the southern border, Ricky told the Daily Caller he flies 3-4 days a week. WATCH: Air Marine Agents like Ricky are responsible for finding any persons illegally crossing, locating vehicles transporting undocumented immigrants and helping Customs and Border Patrol agents procure anyone who enters illegally. “No matter what we’re flying, our primary support is for border patrol agents,” Ricky said. However, he also said he rescues people in the mountains who are trying to cross and become incapacitated or require medical attention, noting the helicopter has hoisting capabilities that make it an easy tool to rescue those who need help.

    A TikTok video shows a group of undocumented immigrants climbing up a rope ladder before scaling over a steel fence at the Mexico-United States border. In the footage, which was reportedly recorded Saturday night, a male individual acts as a lookout while another man secures the bottom end of the ladder as three men slowly make their way to the top of the border wall in Ciudad Juárez across from El Paso, Texas. 'Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry. Let's go,' the lookout said as he captured the migrants going up the ladder, which appeared to be hooked to the top of the border structure. 'Nothing is approaching, nothing is approaching.' One of the men subsequently makes it over the ledge of the border wall and starts to descend to American territory before someone asks the man recording them if any Mexican officers were in the vicinity. 'There's nothing son. There's nothing,'...
    Nearly three dozen executives with Wall Street ties have helped raise millions of dollars for Democrat Joe Bidens campaign, according to newly released documents. CNBC examined donor records from the Biden campaign, which indicated more than 800 individuals raised at least $100,000 for his White House run. A closer look, however, revealed at least 32 people with Wall Street ties who helped bring in millions of dollars. Avenue Capital Group CEO and Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry, for example, helped bring in more than $3 million for Bidens campaign. And Bill Derrough, a managing director at investment bank Moelis and the treasurer of the Democratic National Committee, helped take in more than $1 million. In addition, several lawyers with Wall Street ties have also worked to raise money for Bidens campaign this year. "I think first and foremost its that [Biden] represents a sense of normalcy and decency," Derrough told...
    The Trump administration will surpass 400 miles of new border wall, with roughly the same amount funded and headed for construction, as the country heads to the polls on Election Day. The Washington Examiner traveled in late October to see existing wall from previous administrations, new barrier, and unfenced areas of the border in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California to learn where the president's 2016 campaign promise stands. Thirty-foot wall now stands up and down the 2,000-mile border and marks a visible accomplishment for the Trump White House, even after critics claimed in early years that it was a silly idea, a waste of taxpayer money, and simply impossible to build. Over the past four fiscal years, Congress passed budgets with $15 billion for 738 miles of a new border wall system, which includes new roads, lighting, a host of technology options, and the physical wall....

    According to Bleacher Report‘s most recent list of three-way trade ideas, the Brooklyn Nets could acquire Bradley Beal from the Washington Wizards in a deal that would also send Wizards point guard John Wall to the New York Knicks and Nets youngsters Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, and Taurean Prince to Washington. According to the publication’s Grant Hughes, the main purpose of the proposed trade would be to give the Nets a third scoring option to play alongside superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. While LeVert, whose contract pays him an average of $17.5 million annually, might provide good bang for the buck, Hughes noted that Beal is a “no-questions-asked star” who could justify a move that would force the Nets to part ways with three of its top young players. As part of the hypothetical three-way transaction, veteran Knicks big man Taj Gibson would join Beal in the Nets, while...
    President Donald Trump wrapped up a four-rally campaign swing in the must-win state of Pennsylvania and asked 'how in the hell' he could lose the presidential election. He touted his own record on the economy and claimed Democratic nominee Joe Biden would champion policies that would raise taxes and cost jobs. 'We gotta win this state,' Trump told supporters at his final rally of the day in Montoursville.  'They keep saying it's close but I don't think it's close,' the president said.  'Politics is a crazy world but when you have the best employment numbers in history, when you have the best unemployment numbers and when you have the best economy probably that we've ever had, I don't know how the hell do you lose this election?' he noted.  He also bragged about an executive order he signed to protect fracking - a huge industry in Pennsylvania.

    Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf sent off a stern warning to Twitter after the social media company suspended U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan. “As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other Federal agencies continue to rely on Twitter to share important information with the U.S. public, your censorship poses a threat to our security,” Wolf wrote in a letter to Twitter boss Jack Dorsey, according to Fox News. Morgan was thrown off his account after praising President Trump’s wall along the Mexican border. “Every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators, and drugs from entering our country. It’s a fact, wall’s work.” Morgan said in the offending tweet. Twitter promptly flagged the post as a violation of their “hateful conduct” policy. “You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation,...

    President Donald Trump’s deputies are filing a blizzard of lawsuits to help fill small gaps in the border wall that are being held open by Texas landowners, according to the New York Times. The paper reported on October 29: With the president’s deadline nearing, the government has stepped up litigation against landowners in South Texas. It has filed 106 lawsuits against landowners this year to survey, seize, and potentially begin construction, an increase from 27 lawsuits filed in 2019, said Ricky Garza, a staff lawyer for the Texas Civil Rights Project. The federal government filed 22 cases in September alone. Most of the federal lawsuits are successful because federal law allows the border agencies broad authority to buy land and bypass environmental regulations. So far, aided by Democrats in Congress, the resistance has preserved numerous gaps in southern Texas in the Rio Grande Valley. The gaps providing room for allied cartels...
    Democratic nominee Joe Biden will reverse a number of President Trump’s policies on immigration if elected to the White House -- something that supporters believe will lead to a more humane approach, but that officials at the border and in the White House are warning will lead to chaos. While the issue has not been as central to the 2020 race as it was in 2016, the two candidates differ significantly on how to handle both legal and illegal immigration, with Biden promising to halt or reverse many of Trump’s policies. BIDEN WOULD RETURN TO OBAMA-ERA IMMIGRATION POLICIES IF ELECTED, REPORT SAYS On Thursday, the Trump administration marked nearly 400 miles of border wall built at the southern border since 2017, but it’s something Biden would stop. “There will not be another foot of wall constructed under my administration,” Biden has promised. The wall was a very controversial policy proposal,...
    After workers in southern China began fleeing en masse to Vietnam in the hopes of better jobs and more freedom, the communist regime started building a wall to prevent further emigration in a move that is eerily reminiscent of the Berlin Wall that divided the German city during the Cold War. Meanwhile, Vietnamese authorities have announced that they have begun to crack down on the increasing number of migrants entering the country, per Radio Free Asia. Officials have claimed that the immigrants, who are often based in Guangxi or the Yunnan province, often cross the border illegally on minor roads and paths to avoid detection. In recent days, the Vietnam Public Security Border Bureau has reported arresting more than 100 stowaways in areas around the Chinese border, in addition to human traffickers. According to Kuo Hai-kuang, a Taiwanese businessman based in Binh Duong province, Vietnamese police will likely be held...

    SAN DIEGO — Top U.S. border officials expect cartels to build more tunnels from Mexico to the United States and increasingly rely on drones for surveillance operations as the 400 miles of new border wall makes it harder to smuggle people and drugs into the country. Transnational criminal organizations have long used tunnels and drones at the southwest border, but senior Border Patrol officials across the country are bracing for more activity as new 30-foot-tall barrier wall goes up in areas that have long been easy for criminals to cross. “Don't be fooled into thinking that the cartels and smuggling organizations won't do whatever to try to adapt,” said Anthony Porvaznik, chief of the Border Patrol’s Yuma sector in western Arizona. “We fully expect to see more tunneling activity.” “Smugglers are in the business to make money,” said Border Patrol’s national chief, Rodney Scott, during a one-on-one tour...

    SAN DIEGO — Border Patrol agents who work in the Pacific Ocean off the southern coast of California saw a dramatic increase in the number of arrests made over the past 12 months, an indication that the addition of new border wall in the region since 2017 is prompting smugglers to find new ways to move people and drugs into the United States. "Over the past year, within 2020, we’ve had a record number of marine interdictions, including pangas [small, fast boats], jet skis, swimmers, and paddle boaters,” Border Patrol San Diego Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Heitke told the Washington Examiner during a land and sea tour. “The wall structure itself is solidifying the land border, and it’s forcing the smugglers to come out into the maritime environment.” Agents, using jet skis and boats to patrol the 20-mile stretch from Chula Vista at the border up past downtown...
    More than any other legislative or executive accomplishment, President Donald Trump’s “Wall” along the U.S. southern border stands as a monument to Trumpism and its politics of racial grievance. Now, only days before the election that could unseat Trump, some immigration rights advocates and legal experts have a message for the man who has promised to dismantle the president’s legacy on immigration: Mr. Biden, tear down this wall. “Trump’s border wall is just another pretext for targeting immigrants and border communities,” said Dror Ladin, staff attorney with the ACLU National Security Project. “The construction of this unlawful border wall has desecrated tribal lands, leveled wildlife preservations, and destroyed border communities. Every unlawful mile of wall should be taken down, and the government must work with border communities to undo the damage that wall construction has already inflicted.” Much of Trump’s legacy exists not by law, but by executive order. Much...

Fresh off getting trotted to Arizona to basically campaign for impeached president Donald Trump’s reelection, Unlawful Chad is now set to visit Texas on Thursday to “celebrate the historic completion of 400 miles of new border wall system under the Trump administration,” a press release claimed. Officials have commemorated the stupid fencing before.

    Before Rudy Giuliani gave the New York Post the documents it used to write its report on Hunter Biden and his foreign business ventures, Trump allies, including a White House lawyer, pitched a similar story to the Wall Street Journal with the help of a former Biden business partner and his own trove of emails.

    The Washington Wizards have already made it clear to everyone in the league that they have no intention of trading Bradley Beal this offseason, but the same thing cannot be said for John Wall. If an interesting offer comes their way, the Wizards are expected to strongly consider parting ways with Wall, who’s coming off an Achilles injury and is owed $132.8 million over the next three seasons. One of the potential trade partners for the Wizards in the deal involving their All-Star point guard is the Milwaukee Bucks. According to Mitchell Maurer of SB Nation’s Brew Hoop, the Wizards could send a package that includes Wall and the No. 9 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft to the Bucks in exchange for Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton, the No. 24 selection, and a 2023 second-rounder. “Moving your franchise cornerstone might be an unthinkable proposition, but let’s look at the...

    New York (CNN Business)Reverse mergers were long reserved to the backwaters of Wall Street. Today, they've become the hottest way to go public.

High-profile dealmakers including billionaires Bill Ackman, Richard Branson and even Billy Beane of "Moneyball" fame have gotten in on the act. The latest rumor is that Michael Bloomberg, one of the faces of Wall Street, could bring his media empire public through a SPAC, which is also known as a blank-check merger.

That is four times more than the next closest annual total. And 2020 isn't over yet. During the third...

    Greece has started building a new section of wall along its border with Turkey, after several stand-offs with the Middle Eastern nation over illegal immigration. The Hellenic Army will build an extra 16 miles (27km) of fence as well as upgrading its existing border protection with steel railing measuring just over 4 metres in height, featuring concrete foundations and galvanized square steel tubes. With a budget of €63 million and an expected completion date of April 2021, the project was announced this week by the Greek government spokesman, Stelios Petsas. Police are also trialing “high-powered mobile sirens, aimed at deterring migrants as they cross”, according to AP News, which reported a police chief in the Greece-Turkey border region saying: “The cameras will be a vital resource for us. We have been asking for them for five years and we think they will be very effective.” The development comes after stand-offs...
    Oklahoma City — One set of human remains, and perhaps a second, have been found in a Tulsa cemetery where investigators are searching for victims of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, Oklahoma state archaeologist Kary Stackelbeck said Tuesday.   "We do have one confirmed individual and the possibility of a second" body found, Stackelbeck said. "We are still in the process of analyzing those remains to the best of our ability... We don't have a whole lot of details," Stackelbeck said.   The confirmed human remains were found little more than 3 feet underground in an area known as the "Original 18," where funeral home records show massacre victims are buried.   It is not yet known if the remains, which were found in a wooden coffin, are of a victim of the massacre, Stackelbeck said.
