Protesters blast tape of wailing children outside DHS secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s home: ‘No justice, no sleep’

Published

Protesters blared a recording of traumatized children separated from their parents during a Friday morning demonstration outside the home of Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

The demonstrators chanted, “No justice, no sleep,” and “free the kids,” as neighbors peered out their windows but did not call the police.

Some protesters carried signs showing Nielsen’s face with the caption, “child snatcher.”

Nielsen was chased out of a Mexican restaurant by Democratic Socialists of America activists Tuesday night in Washington, D.C.

The next day, Nielsen wrote an executive order signed by President Donald Trump calling for a halt to the controversial family separation policy.

But the administration has not offered any specifics for reuniting those detained children with their families.

Politico reported Tuesday that global regulators and U.S. researchers have expressed concerns about the risks the drug has for a long time. According to past tests, the drug can cause birth defects and research on it is insufficient.

Russia’s top coronavirus doctor tests positive for COVID-19 after shaking hands with Putin

Published

The head of Moscow's main coronavirus hospital who met with President Vladimir Putin a week ago has tested positive, he said Tuesday, as the Kremlin announced the Russian leader's health was fine.

Last Tuesday Denis Protsenko met with the Russian leader who inspected the Kommunarka hospital while wearing a bright yellow hazmat suit. But the 67-year-old Putin was also seen talking to Protsenko without any protective gear.
