Daily Dispatch 9/19/18

A sampling of today’s headlines on immigration, race, and related stories.

September 19, 2018

Déjà vu:

1,500 kids lost – AGAIN!  Out of the 11,254 unaccompanied migrant children that HHS has placed with sponsors in 2018, investigators reveal that HHS “could not determine with certainty the whereabouts of 1,488.” Similarly, HHS lost track of 1,457 of kids it placed in 2017.

Though the Army suspended a program that discharged immigrants, emails show they’re still looking for excuses to do so. DOD denies the allegation.

CBP Update:

Texas law enforcement “not confident” that the four women executed by Border Patrol serial killer are his only victims.

Trump wants 5,000 more Border Patrol agents, but CBP serial killer case raises questions about vetting procedures.

Refugees:

Obama’s ORR director calls slashing refugee cap “a new low in our history” and warns Pompeo, “people will die.”

Grassley (R-IA) chastises administration for cuts to refugee program, saying it “has willfully ignored its statutory mandate to inform and consult with Congress.”

UN High Commission on Refugees offers a nonresponse.

This small town in Italy demonstrates why they might want to reconsider lowering refugee cap.

ICE contracts with GrayShift, iPhone hackers led by former Apple security staff. Human rights activists fear invasion of privacy.

Senate Hearings:
