A bus from Texas dropped about 30 Nicaraguan migrants outside Vice President Kamala Harris’s official residence early Wednesday — at least the fifth time Gov. Greg Abbott has used the Naval Observatory as a bus depot.
Texas began sending migrants from border cities to the nation’s capital in April, hoping to pressure the Biden administration by drawing attention to record levels of migration in the past year.
State and local officials say border communities have been overburdened and overwhelmed by the surge.
Footage from NBC News showed dozens of migrants, including toddlers, coming off the bus in the dark before 7 a.m..

A commercial turkey flock of 100,000 birds was culled after highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) was confirmed, the Iowa Department of Agriculture reported on Tuesday.
An additional 40,000 turkeys were also destroyed this week at a Sac County. And last Friday, Buena Vista County was stricken with HPAI for the fifth time in nine months in a turkey flock of 40,000.

Thousands of women in Greenland, including some as young as 12, had a contraceptive device implanted in their womb – often without consent – as part of a Danish campaign to control Greenland’s growing Inuit population in the 60s and 70s.
The Danish government has announced an independent investigation into this so-called “Coil Campaign”.
But the BBC has gathered accounts from women about recent involuntary contraception, amid growing calls for the investigation to go further.
When Bebiane was 21 years old, she went to have a coil fitted – only to hear the shocking news that there was already one inside her.
“I remember the tears rolling down my cheeks, and I told them that I couldn’t understand how I already had a coil in me… How could I not remember when I had it put in?”
Bebiane believes the only time the coil could have been inserted without her knowing was when she had an abortion at the age of 16, in the early 2000’s.
For the next four years she suffered from crippling spells of abdominal pain so severe that they left her unable to climb stairs.

The House is expected to vote on the act Thursday, with the Senate to follow. The Democratic capitulation to the GOP’s demand to rescind the vaccine mandate is an inexcusable dereliction of Congress’ duty to care for the health of military service members and the general public.
