Anti-immigration activist denied entry to Australia because she filled out wrong visa form

Published

Lauren Southern, a far-right Canadian activist best known for her attacks on refugees and her promotion of bogus “white genocide” narratives, has been denied entry into Australia because she filled out the wrong visa form.

Australia’s SBS News reports that Southern this week was denied a visa ahead of what had been a planned speaking tour in Australia.

According to the Australian government, Southern applied for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) visa, which SBS News says allows for “short-term business or travel stays for events like conferences.”

However, the visa does not cover the kind of lengthy speaking tour that Southern planned to engage in, and she’s been told that she will have to fill out a different visa application to gain entry to the country.

“The individual has a visa application before the Department which remains under consideration,” a spokesman for Australia’s Department of Homeland Affairs tells SBS News. “For visitors who may hold controversial views, any risk they may pose will be balanced against Australia’s well-established freedom of speech and freedom of beliefs, amongst other relevant considerations.”

In the past, Southern has called immigrants seeking entry into western countries “barbarians” who are “ruining everything.”

She also recently recorded a video warning Australians that they may soon fall prey to the dangers of “multiculturalism.”

“Do you want to retain your culture, do you want to retain your borders, family, identity, or will the boats keep coming?” she asked in the video. “Will the no-go zones keep growing, and will you become another victim of multiculturalism?”

Bolton, President Trump’s former national security adviser, filed a motion trying to keep Mick Mulvaney, the president’s acting chief of staff, from joining a lawsuit over impeachment testimony," New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker reported Monday.

Trump’s lie about ‘doctored’ impeachment transcripts debunked by impeachment witnesses’ lawyers

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday falsely accused Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) of releasing "doctored" transcripts of impeachment inquiry witnesses and then bizarrely suggested that Republicans release their own versions of the transcripts.

"Shifty Adam Schiff will only release doctored transcripts," the president wrote on Twitter. "We haven’t even seen the documents and are restricted from (get this) having a lawyer."

Trump presented no evidence to back up his claim that Schiff had done something to alter the transcripts, which show that multiple administration officials testified that the Trump administration was withholding aid to Ukraine until its government agreed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump-appointed judge delivers major blow to president’s efforts to keep his taxes secret

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday suffered yet another legal defeat in his quest to keep his tax returns a secret -- and it came at the hands of one of the president's own appointees.

CNN reports that Trump-appointed Judge Carl Nichols the of United States District Court for the District of Columbia has ruled that the president cannot sue the state of New York in his court to prevent the release of his taxes.

In his ruling, Nichols found that Trump's attorneys failed to establish a so-called "conspiracy jurisdiction" based on his accusations that New York Attorney General Letitia James is a co-conspirator with House Democrats in a plot to improperly reveal the president's personal financial information.
