December 22, 2016 by walden9

The desperate Trek: Mexico's border cities are getting overwhelmed with migrants | 22 Dec 2016 | In a surge Mexican officials are calling unprecedented, some 15,000 migrants from outside Latin America passed through Baja California this year -- nearly five times the number seen in 2015. More than a third of the detainees being held in California immigration holding centers in September were from outside Latin America, U.S. officials say. As they traverse a circuitous and dangerous path up the spine of South America, Central America and Mexico, they have strained resources along the route and presented new challenges for securing America’s southern border.

December 22, 2016 by walden9

Berlin truck terror suspect and the curious matter of ID papers left behind | 21 Dec 2016 | Today, WhoWhatWhy has seen heavy traffic coming from Google searches that point to a story we ran almost two years ago. Why the sudden interest? It took us only a moment to discover the connection: We had written about the odd phenomenon of terrorists repeatedly leaving ID papers behind at the scene. And now, with the Berlin truck attack, we see yet another such example. We also see that, in a pattern we have previously reported on with other terror incidents, the suspect was already known to authorities -- had even been in custody, but was released.
