"Victoria Perez spent 10 months as a migrant smuggler. When agents finally caught up with her, she told them she had made $200,000 over that time, working two days a week, driving migrants through a Border Patrol highway checkpoint near El Paso, Texas...The $200,000 she earned for what was essentially part-time work exceeds the annual salary of a member of Congress. It works out to three times the starting pay for a Border Patrol agent...The Washington Times has tracked smuggling cases along the southwestern border for several years and maintains a database based on affidavits from Border Patrol agents, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, and Customs and Border Protection officers. The accounts in this article are chiefly based on those interviews. According to The Times’ data, Mexicans paid an average of about $7,900 in February 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic upended cross-border traffic.

Ironic, in that there is nothing in the legislative history of the Second Amendment to support a 'common use' test. As Judge Benitez wrote, 'The command of the Amendment is that the right to keep and bear arms ‘shall not be infringed.’' Not some arms, but 'Arms.' And not 'infringed too much,' but 'infringed' at all." https://thefederalist.com/2021/06/09/second-ruling-against-californias-assault-weapon-ban-offers-supreme-court-a-chance-to-fix-heller/

"An English teacher has resigned from a top New Jersey prep school that is using critical race theory to create a 'hostile culture of conformity and fear' — causing white and male students to believe they are 'oppressors,' she said. Dana Stangel-Plowe accused the Dwight-Englewood School in Bergen County of forcing students and faculty to embrace a single set of beliefs, choking off free-speech in the process...A graduate of Cornell University and a published poet, Stangel-Plowe has taught English to high school students at Dwight-Englewood since 2014.
