Hurricane storm Beryl hits Texas leaving 2,000,000 people without power
Quick Glance: Beryl Tracker: Projected Path, Models Towards Texas

Haitian migrant accused of raping teen girl in Boston freed on $500 bail
Quick Glance: Release of Haitian Migrant Despite Immigration Request
  • A Haitian man, accused of assaulting a 15-year-old at a shelter in Massachusetts, has been set free on bail, against the wishes of federal immigration officials who sought his detention.

  • After a hearing to determine dangerousness, the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office had requested a $10,000 bail for Alvarez along with several release conditions, but the judge opted for a $500 bail instead.

  • Alvarez was released with an ankle monitor, but due to Boston being a sanctuary city, ICE authorities are unable to trace his movements, as local authorities are not mandated to cooperate with federal agencies.

  • Upon entering the US in June 2023 under President Biden’s contentious CHNV program for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans, Alvarez had no prior criminal record.

Alec Baldwin goes on trial over fatal ‘Rust’ shooting
Quick Glance: Judge Dismisses Alec Baldwin from Rust Charges
  • A New Mexico judge dismissed involuntary manslaughter charges against Alec Baldwin after his lawyers alleged that police and prosecutors hid evidence of the source of the live round that killed 'Rust' cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in 2021.

  • Baldwin left the courthouse without speaking to reporters after Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer ruled on the defense request following evidence presented, including from the prosecutor who testified.

  • The actor's lawyers claimed that the bullets at the center of the dismissal were submitted to the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office on March 6 by a friend of Thell Reed, the stepfather of 'Rust' armorer Hannah Gutierrez.

  • Prosecutors allege Baldwin played a role in Hutchins' death due to irresponsible gun handling, while his lawyers argue that Baldwin was let down by Gutierrez and others responsible for set safety.
