The U.S.-funded United Nations is providing cash to help job-seeking migrants trek up through South America, Central America, and Mexico, says Todd Bensman at the Center for Immigration Studies. “It is definitely organized,” Bensman told Breitbart News on Monday during a reporting trip to Tapachula in southern Mexico, where migrants arrive after crossing Central America: They’re giving money out at way-stations up and down the [migrant] trail … There’s a process [in Tapachula]: You get your Mexican [visa] papers, then you go to the UN building next door, get an appointment, and they interview you and look at your situation… It’s not big money, and not all of them get it, but enough get it to sustain them so they don’t have to go home, and so they can go on to the next way station. Bensman tweeted a video of the migrants waiting for payments: Photo I just took of a Honduran migrant woman’s United Nations-issued cash card, which provided 2,500 pesos a month for 4, … [Read more...] about Exclusive: UN Funds Migrant Wave Flooding to the U.S.

By Michael Hurley , CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The NFL is great at many things. Admitting fault is not one of them. READ MORE: Pedestrian Hit, Killed By Car On Route 9 In Framingham It’s telling, then, that instead of circling the wagons and defending the actions of an NFL official, veteran referee Walt Anderson has left the league with no choice — not after a bumbling, blundering, bungling of a trainwreck performance on Monday night — but to state in plain terms that he was very, very wrong.

It is the option that nobody in the Olympic movement wants to talk about, but it is the one staring everyone in the face: a Tokyo Games this summer with no fans, just 10,000 athletes competing in front of seas of empty seats. As the coronavirus continues to spread , with more than 3,000 deaths and 90,000 documented cases worldwide, sporting events without fans are edging toward becoming a kind of new normal.
