    AUSTIN, Texas — Rep. Beto O’Rourke and four other Democratic members of Congress toured a remote tent city in West Texas on Saturday where they said that 2,700 immigrant teens are being held at a cost of roughly $1 million per day. The lawmakers urged the nonprofit running the facility not to renew a federal contract that expires Dec. 31, a longshot request that could effectively shutter the camp. It was supposed to be temporary but has instead taken in more children and taken on a permanent feel with soccer fields, a dining facility and tents housing separate sleeping quarters...

    A woman who taught dangerous, self-induced abortions and referred women to back alley abortionists prior to Roe v. Wade is being celebrated as a heroine in modern America.Slate recently profiled 90-year-old Patricia Maginnis, an early leader of the pro-abortion movement in America.  Maginnis taught classes on self-induce abortions and started an “underground railroad” of abortionists to refer women to in the 1960s. She also advocated for legalizing abortion on demand, supposedly to protect women from the dangerous abortions that she also was promoting.Earlier this year, the National Women’s History Alliance recognized her as an “unsung hero in the fight for...

Traci Redford, from El Paso, says the agent at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, began poking fun at her daughter’s name, Abcde – pronounced “ab-city” – as they boarded a flight a few weeks ago and put it online for users to shame the girl, who suffers from epilepsy. “The gate agent started laughing, pointing at me and my daughter, talking to other employees.

    For all the hype about self-driving cars out there, this Wall Street Journal report, titled The Bumps Ahead for Autonomous Vehicles, suggests there are some problems: Everyday scenarios that human drivers navigate with ease, such as bumpy roads or snowy weather, can be unintelligible to a car’s sensors. But there is no industry standard for what sensors or backup mechanisms driverless cars must have if primary sensors fail.
