    Biden officials release updated post-Title 42 plan amid bipartisan criticism.
    CBS News (Moderate Left) • Factual Grade 75% • 6 min read

    Facing criticism over its decision to phase out a pandemic-related border expulsion rule known as Title 42, the Biden administration released updated plans. [The plan includes]: surging personnel to the border; expanding migrant processing capacity; deporting, detaining or prosecuting migrants; securing assistance from border organizations, cracking down on human smugglers and deterring migration.
    One of the plan's key components is the expansion of expedited removal, a fast-track deportation process created in 1996, to deport migrants who do not ask for humanitarian refuge or who fail initial asylum screenings. Officials said asylum-seekers fleeing violence will have access to humanitarian protection.
    The administration official said expedited removal would be used to deport some Central Americans back to their home countries, as opposed to expelling them to Mexico under Title 42, which could allow them to attempt to enter the U.S. illegally multiple times.

Is Elon Musk going to improve Twitter?

648 votes, 76 comments

Context: Twitter accepts Elon Musk's bid.


Yes - Ordinarily I would be more inclined to answer "unsure," but after making a Twitter account last year I can confirm that the legends are true; Twitter is actually as bad as they say it is. So I feel like it would be difficult to make it worse. Adding an edit button and publishing the algorithm seem like good ideas. More free speech is probably a good thing too. And Elon Musk has been surprisingly successful in his business ventures thus far. If anyone could improve Twitter, it would be him.

No - He might make slight improvements here or there, but overall this is just proof that we live in an oligarch...
