Gene: Why does the media keep denying there is voter fraud? No one really knows how much fraud because we do not have adequate laws to prevent fraud and to uncover it when it occurs. If that woman had checked all YES on her registration form no one would have known she voted illegally. She got tripped up because she checked a "NO" instead of "YES" on one box. Past time to require proof of citizenship when registering to vote and a government picture ID when voting at the polls. Why not? The elderly and the indigent all have ID to get their government benefits. So who really has a problem? This isn't 1929 America where virtually no one had a picture ID. How many other illegal aliens have slipped through the cracks and have been voting for years? Oh, and if you don't know the difference between resident and citizen then you should not be voting.
Monday morning the White House rolled out the latest version of President Trump’s immigration policy, with the president signing the revised executive order. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly detailed the revised language, which limited immigration from six majority-Muslim countries and dropped the exception carved out for religious minorities, which was seen by opponents as representing an unconstitutional form of religious discrimination. The lineage of the order can be traced back to 2015 and the Republican primary, where in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting, then-candidate Trump called for temporarily banning Muslims from entering the United States.

India's national airline claimed Monday to have set a new record with the first round-the-world flight staffed entirely by women. Air India said its Boeing 777 travelled from Delhi to San Francisco and back again with an all-female crew last week, the first time such a flight has circumnavigated the globe.

A retired Philippine police officer testified Monday that President Rodrigo Duterte and his men were linked to nearly 200 killings that the officer and a "death squad" carried out when Duterte was mayor of a southern city. Arturo Lascanas outlined at a Senate inquiry some of the key killings he and others allegedly staged "with the prior knowledge, direct orders, consent, tolerance or acquiescence" of Duterte, who was mayor of Davao city.

The United States isn’t the only county pulling up the drawbridges: Israel just passed a law that bars entry to foreigners who support boycotts of Israel or the territories it controls. The law, which passed Israel’s Knesset Monday on a 46-28 vote, could block many self-described Zionists and even some American rabbis and tour operators from traveling to Israel, depending on how broadly it is applied. It drew condemnation from several U.S. pro-Israel groups, who warned that quashing free speech would play into the hands of Israel’s opponents.

By Noel Randewich SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Technology services company shares dipped on Monday after the Trump administration announced it would temporarily suspend expedited applications for H-1B visas widely used by foreign tech workers.
