Exclusive Footage: Migrant Bus of Mostly Single Adult Men, Sent by Texas Gov. Abbott, Arrives in New York City

Exclusive Footage: Migrant Bus of Mostly Single Adult Men, Sent by Texas Gov. Abbott, Arrives in New York City

NEW YORK CITY — A bus filled with mostly single adult male migrants arrived at Port Authority in New York City from Texas Friday morning — where they were greeted by volunteers handing out burritos — as Gov. Greg Abbott (R) continues dispersing record-breaking numbers of border crossers and illegal aliens arriving in his state to Democrat-run “sanctuary cities.”

New York City officials appeared to be unprepared for the migrants’ arrival, or at least lacked communication and coordination to receive them, as Port Authority did not initially have a gate for the bus to park, and Port Authority employees were not aware of the plan for arrival. The bus circled between 8th and 9th avenues Friday morning until it was finally able to park at Gate 14 at approximately 7:30 a.m.

“Because of President Biden’s continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis caused by his open border policies, the State of Texas has had to take unprecedented action to keep our communities safe,” Gov. Abbott said in a statement.

“In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within the sanctuary city,” Abbott said. “I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief.”

When the bus arrived, Breitbart News witnessed passengers disembarking after a 3-day journey from Texas, greeted by a handful of volunteers. One volunteer was wearing a “NYC immigration services” t-shirt, but there did not appear to be any city employees present.

The greeters handed migrants a bag bearing the logo of the humanitarian aid organization “Save the Children”; however, there appeared to be fewer than 10 children among the group, and no more than 5 women. The rest of the 60-some passengers on the bus were single males between the ages of 20 to 40 years old.

The volunteers led the group through Port Authority, corralled them into the entrance of the bus station and handed out burritos. Some migrants were provided rides to other locations, but it was unclear where.

One migrant, a man who said his name is Alfonzo and who arrived alone, told Breitbart News he traveled from Venezuela through Mexico into Texas, where he was put directly on the bus to New York City.

He left his wife and children in Chile and explained that he came alone to America first and planned to bring them later. He does not have any family or connections in the United States and does not speak English. He came with one bag containing some toiletries and a pillow, and had 130 U.S. dollars.

Alfonzo told Breitbart News that now was a good “opportunity” to come to the United States, explaining that he did not believe he would be admitted under former President Trump’s administration, specifically mentioning that the wall along the southern border was an obstacle to entry. He said locals in Mexico accepted money to direct him toward the border.

Alfonzo said he was looking for work, but had never been to New York City or the United States. He did not have a place to stay and was not informed of any lodging services or resources.

Despite Democrat officials’ support for illegal immigration through their expansive sanctuary city policies, which shield illegal aliens from arrest and deportation from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a handful have warned that the migrant buses from Texas will overwhelm their city’s public resources.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D), for instance, has pleaded with Biden for “additional federal resources immediately” to deal with the illegal immigration surge. In another statement, Adams told New Yorkers to get “on board” with having their city overrun with border crossers and illegal aliens arriving and straining infrastructure, hospitals, schools, and neighborhoods.

“Everyone’s block is going to be impacted by this,” Adams said. “And so we have to add our advocacy with our ability to help our neighbors. We need everyone on board with this.”

“… our schools are going to be impacted, our healthcare system is going to be impacted, our infrastructure is going to be impacted,” he continued.

Adams’ office claims the migrant buses’ being sent to New York City is akin to using border crossers and illegal aliens “as political pawns,” calling the policy “disgusting.”

Gov. Abbott has issued a public invitation to Mayor Adams to visit the southern border, insisting the “sanctuary city” mayor witness “the magnitude of chaos created by Biden’s open-border policies.”

“I really wish they would [visit] because public officials across the country, they do need to realize the magnitude of the chaos created by Biden’s open-border policies,” Abbott said on Fox News Thursday.

“They’re up in arms about a few thousand people coming into their communities over the past few months? Listen, in any one sector in the state of Texas, we have more than 5,000 people coming across in that sector every single day,” Abbott continued.

Similarly, Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser requested National Guard troops last month to deal with what she called a “humanitarian crisis” of just over 6,000 migrants being bused to the capital from Texas since April.

Bowser, a staunch supporter of the region’s sanctuary city policy, claimed the migrant buses were a “tipping point” for Washington, DC, even as they pale in comparison to the level of illegal immigration that American border towns are forced to deal with under the Biden administration.

In Texas border towns alone, nearly 130,000 border crossers and illegal aliens were caught crossing the border in June. Most recently, in the small town of Normandy, Texas — with a population of just 29 residents — about 400 border crossers and illegal aliens crossed into the area this month.

New York City Declares Public Health Emergency over Monkeypox

New York City Declares Public Health Emergency over Monkeypox

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) declared monkeypox a public health emergency on Monday following Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) declaring a state of emergency last week, as the mayor claimed the outbreak “continues to grow” in the city.

“As the monkeypox outbreak continues to grow in New York City and across the country, I am today issuing an emergency executive order declaring a local state of emergency,” Adams said in a Monday statement, explaining that the city now has over 1,200 cases, comprising “approximately 25 percent of cases nationally.”

Numbers, he added, are continuing to rise.

“This order will bolster our existing efforts to educate, vaccinate, test, and treat as many New Yorkers as possible and ensure a whole-of-government response to this outbreak. In partnership with federal, state, and local officials we will continue to respond with the urgency required to keep people safe, and this order is another tool to help us do so,” he said.

His announcement follows action taken by Gov. Hochul on Friday, declaring a State Disaster Emergency over monkeypox.

“This Executive Order enables us to respond more swiftly, and allows health care professionals to take additional steps that will help get more New Yorkers vaccinated,” Hochul said, adding that “more than one in four monkeypox cases in this country are in New York, currently having a disproportionate impact on at-risk groups.”

“We are working around the clock to secure more vaccines, expand testing capacity, and educate New Yorkers on how to stay safe,” she added:

New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Mary Bassett said most of the cases are spreading through sexual contact — primarily among men who have sex with other men.

“With more than one-quarter of all cases in the U.S., New Yorkers, and especially our LGBTQ+ community, remain among the hardest-hit,” Hochul said in a statement.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. has 5,189 confirmed cases of the illness, the most of which are in New York and California. Similarly, the City of San Francisco declared a public health emergency over the monkeypox outbreak as well.

A recent Annenberg Public Policy Center survey found that the vast majority of Americans, 81 percent, are “not too worried” or “not at all worried” about catching monkeypox, but a result of the rise in cases, the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is urging gay men to reduce their number of sexual partners.

New York Democrat Eric Adams: Get ‘On Board’ with Illegal Immigration ‘Influx’ in Schools, Hospitals, Neighborhoods

New York Democrat Eric Adams: Get ‘On Board’ with Illegal Immigration ‘Influx’ in Schools, Hospitals, Neighborhoods

New York City, New York, Mayor Eric Adams (D) says New Yorkers must be “on board” with having their schools, hospitals, and neighborhoods burdened by an “influx” of illegal immigration to the region as a result of President Joe Biden’s policies.

During a press conference this week, Adams warned the city’s nearly 8.4 million residents — who remain some of the most tax-burdened people in the United States — to be prepared to have their schools, hospitals, roads, and neighborhoods inundated with border crossers and illegal aliens who are arriving by the tens of thousands every month.

“Number one, this is an opportunity for New Yorkers to move away from ‘Not In My Backyard.’ We all must share the crisis,” Adams said. “Our approach has been to divide up the homeless issue even prior to the asylum seekers by councilmanic districts.”

“Now with this influx of people seeking asylum and support, now we have to go beyond that,” Adams continued. “We’re looking at the potential for emergency shelters in hotels and other facilities … if there was ever an all-hands-on-deck moment, this is it … our system was inundated with those who were seeking shelter because of the callousness of those other states that were pushing them out.”

Adams warned that “everyone’s” neighborhood in New York City will be burdened by the waves of border crossers and illegal aliens being released every day into the U.S. interior. New Yorkers, Adams said, must accept that reality:

We’re here, we’re receiving them and everyone is going to have to be on board. And we can’t have the historical “I believe people should be housed but just don’t house them on my block.” Everyone’s block is going to be impacted by this. And so we have to add our advocacy with our ability to help our neighbors. We need everyone on board with this. [Emphasis added]

As I said last week, our schools are going to be impacted, our healthcare system is going to be impacted, our infrastructure is going to be impacted … we’re going to need all New Yorkers to be with us on this. [Emphasis added]

Already, New Yorkers must deal with the nation’s highest population densities for a major American city. The city houses nearly 30,000 residents per square mile. The density has translated to a lack of public resources for residents.

Just last year, parents in New York City protested as their public schools became overcrowded with class sizes exceeding 30 schoolchildren per teacher.

At the same time, the city’s “sanctuary city” policy that shields illegal aliens from arrest and deportation, along with other incentives for jobs, lax immigration enforcement, and one of the highest illegal alien populations, has helped skyrocket rents for New Yorkers as more competition in the housing market drives up costs.

The New York Times reported in May:

In New York City, roughly one-third of renters are “severely rent-burdened,” meaning they spend more than 50 percent of their income on rent, according to a survey of the city’s housing stock issued last week. [Emphasis added]

The city’s affordability crisis has been underscored more than once in recent weeks. A report released this month by the brokerage firm Douglas Elliman showed that rents in some parts of the city are continuing to surge: In Manhattan, for example, the median effective rent in April 2022 was $3,870, more than 38 percent higher than a year before and the highest level ever recorded. [Emphasis added]

The survey of the city’s housing stock underscored a longstanding trend of dwindling affordability: Between 2017 and 2021, New York City lost almost 100,000 units that had rented for less than $1,500 per month, while it added 107,000 units that rent for at least $2,300 per month. [Emphasis added]

Research conducted at the University of Pennsylvania found that “an immigration inflow equal to 1 percent of a city’s population is associated with increases in average rents and housing values of about 1 percent,” which would equate to a massive cost burden for New Yorkers as immigrants make up more than 37 percent of the city’s population.

From February 2021 to May 2022, alone, Biden has released over a million border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior. This is about twice the population of Wyoming and larger than the population of Austin, Texas.

Likewise, since Biden took office, his Department of Homeland Security (DHS) estimates that nearly 820,000 illegal aliens have successfully crossed into the U.S. via the southern border, undetected by Border Patrol agents.

Facing Public Backlash Manhattan DA Lowers Bail for 61-Year-Old Convenience Store Clerk, Jose Alba, in Clear Self Defense Case

Facing Public Backlash Manhattan DA Lowers Bail for 61-Year-Old Convenience Store Clerk, Jose Alba, in Clear Self Defense Case

The Safari Rules are surfacing again….

Jose Alba, 61, was working at Hamilton Heights Grocery on Broadway when a 35-year-old career criminal and ex-con, Austin Simon, stormed behind the counter and shoved him into a wall.  Austin Simon then continued to aggressively push Alba around, when the clerk grabbed a knife to defend himself and stabbed his attacker, Simon.

The entire incident was captured on CCTV footage [SEE HERE, Rumble], and the series of events were triggered when Simon’s girlfriend did not have enough money for her purchase and Jose Alba would not let her just take it without paying.  The boyfriend, Austin Simon, then enters the store, walks behind the counter and begins assaulting the 61-year-old Mr. Alba.  After a few minutes of being shoved and pushed around, Alba then grabbed a knife and stabbed Simon.  The attacker died of his injuries.  The store clerk was arrested by police, charged with murder and sent to jail with a $500,000 bail.

New York – The hard-working Manhattan bodega worker who was languishing on Rikers Island after being charged with murder for fending off a violent ex-con inside his store could be home as soon as Thursday night after a judge agreed to lower his hefty bail.

Jose Alba, who was being held on $250,000 bail in the Friday night caught-on-video attack, is due to be sprung after Manhattan prosecutors asked a judge to lower the amount to $50,000 — with relatives and Alba’s boss putting up the $5,000 needed to spring him on a bail bond. 

Alba’s attorney, Danielle Jackson of Neighborhood Defender Service of Harlem, assured the judge that her client was going nowhere.

“He has every intention to return to court and defend this case,” Jackson said.

Prosecutors with District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office had initially requested that Alba be held on $500,000 bail at his arraignment Saturday, citing a planned trip to the Dominican Republic next week as proof that he was a flight risk.

In court, Manhattan prosecutors charged Alba with second-degree murder, but refused to file charges against Simon’s girlfriend for stabbing the bodega worker.

More than 20 relatives and supporters packed the courtroom for the video-feed court hearing in support of the beleaguered bodega worker.

Simon’s family, meanwhile, stormed out of court in tears, with his sister saying, that he “was murdered in cold blood.”  “If the shoe was on the other foot my brother wouldn’t have gotten bail or bond or nothing,” she said.  (read more)

Unfortunately, there is a racial component to this as blacks and Latinos have historically been two groups with friction between them.   Then overlay the black grievance industry, and the last decade of efforts to excuse any amount of criminal conduct by black males, and the narrative becomes very familiar.  It’s the “Safari Principle.”

Essentially, the rules of the safari say you should remain indoors, or in a locked vehicle, when there are predators (young black males) in the vicinity.  If you exit your vehicle in the safari, or otherwise engage the predators, they are not to blame for your injury or death.  This social acceptance of black violence is part of the reparations process advanced by progressives and leftists.

Under the rules of the safari, you are not allowed to defend yourself from any predatory attack, and all attacks are triggered by the behavior of the victim when the attack starts.  Famously another Latino named George Zimmerman was arrested by an activist prosecutor in Florida for defending himself against an attack by a black male named Trayvon Martin.

Police Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson Missouri also learned the rules of the safari when he was attacked by another black male named Michael Brown.  Wilson shot and killed Brown after the predator attacked him in his vehicle; however, Wilson was run out of town by angry mob who wanted him arrested for defending himself and doing his job.

As the Safari Rules have continued to evolve under the culturally Marxist advancements by Black Lives Matter, the current rules emphasize that all black male predators are to be excused for their violent behavior immediately and no self-defense is permitted.

Mr. Jose Alba has now entered into the Safari Rules legal process.

New Yorkers Celebrate ‘Victory for Citizen Rights’ After Court Blocks Foreign Nationals from Voting in NYC

New York officials are celebrating after the state’s Supreme Court struck down a Democrat-passed law that gave municipal voting rights to foreign nationals living in New York City.

Last year, Democrats on the 51-member New York City Council approved a plan that allows more than 800,000 foreign nationals with green cards, visas, and work permits the opportunity to vote in citywide elections as long as they have resided in the city for at least 30 consecutive days.

A multilingual "Vote here" sign is displayed in the voting room at Christ Lutheran Church in Monterey Park, Los Angeles County, on November 6, 2012 in California, as Americans flock to the polls nationwide to decide between President Barack Obama, his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, and a wide range of other issues. Monterey Park is one of six cities in California's 49th Assembly District, the state's first legislative district where Asian-Americans make up the majority of the population.

On Monday the New York Supreme Court ruled that the law is “illegal, null, and void” because “it is clear … that voting is a right granted to citizens of the United States.”

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who is running for governor, praised the decision:

Voting is a sacred right of U.S. citizens, and, today, the New York State Supreme Court correctly reaffirmed that right. One person, one vote belongs to U.S. citizens, and no one else! No way should noncitizens be allowed to vote. [Emphasis added]

New York City Councilman Robert Holden, a Democrat from Queens who joined the state’s Republican Party and naturalized American citizens in their suit against the law, also applauded the ruling.

“I applaud today’s court decision in favor of our bi-partisan lawsuit, affirming what we already knew: non-citizen voting in [New York] is a violation of law,” Holden said. “It’s a victory for citizens’ rights and will encourage permanent residents to pursue citizenship and fully commit to our nation.”

“Citizenship and suffrage have always been tied together for good reason, and must never be torn from each other,” Holden continued.

Councilman Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island) said the ruling “validates those of us who can read the plain English words of our state constitution and state statutes: noncitizen voting in New York is illegal…”

“Shame on those who thought they could skirt the law for political gain,” he said.

Councilwoman Inna Vernikov (R-Brooklyn) called voting a “sacred right and privilege that is granted exclusively to citizens of the United States. As an immigrant,” she continued, “… I am proud to be a plaintiff in this lawsuit.”

Likewise, Councilwoman Joann Ariola (R-Queens) called the ruling “a win for democracy.”

New York State Republican Party Chairman Nick Langworthy said the ruling is “another victory for citizen rights, election integrity, and the rule of law” and vowed to continue fighting the issue in court:

Time and again, New York Democrats have abused the power entrusted to them to illegally rig the system while trampling on citizen’s rights. Whether it was this outrageous violation or their illegal gerrymander, we have proven that we will fight them in court and win, but this should serve as yet another reason why we need to break up one-Party rule and restore balance and accountability to our government. [Emphasis added]

Dale Wilcox of the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI), which filed a friend of the court brief in support of the suit against the law, said he is “pleased this law is now null and void.”

“Laws such as this are an attack on the very idea of American nationhood,” Wilcox said in a statement. “The sovereign of this democratic nation is the people, U.S. citizens. When their power is eroded, our nation begins to lose its independence.”

The case is Fossella v. AdamsNo. 172 in the Supreme Court of the State of New York.

Big Brother Is Watching: Report Says NYC Considering Subway Gun Detectors

Big Brother Is Watching: Report Says NYC Considering Subway Gun Detectors

Deploying high-tech scanners to spot someone carrying a gun into New York City’s subway system before they have a chance to use it is an option under increasing consideration by Mayor Eric Adams (D), a report Wednesday details.

AP outlines the argument in favor of random weapon checks has returned in the aftermath of a mass shooting on a New York City subway train.

Security experts counsel installing such a system in the city’s subway system has distinct challenges but is not impossible.

The fact scanners need to be accompanied by human operators to confront people carrying firearms illegally is the main problem rather than the availability of the technology.

If approved they will help stem one aspect of the violence that is increasingly coming to define the porous mass transit system.

“Logistically, it would be a nightmare. You’re going to have to tie up a lot of officers doing this,” James Dooley, a retired New York Police Department captain who served in the department’s transit division, told AP “We have hundreds of stations, and the fact of the matter is that putting someone at every entrance to every station is logistically impossible.”

Adams, a former police captain, has acknowledged the challenges but has said the system might still be worth trying at select locations as a deterrent, the AP report continues.

“We want to be able to just pop up at a station someplace so people don’t know it’s there,” the Democrat said, “similar to what we do when we do car checkpoints.”

The push for better subway security got renewed urgency in April after a gunman set off smoke bombs and sprayed a subway compartment with shots, wounding 10 people, as Breitbart News reported.

Emergency personnel gather at the entrance to a subway stop in the Brooklyn borough of New York, Tuesday, April 12, 2022. Multiple people were shot and injured Tuesday at a subway station in New York City during a morning rush hour attack that left wounded commuters bleeding on a train platform. (John Minchillo/AP)

Then, on May 22, another gunman killed a passenger in what authorities said appeared to be a random attack.

A day after that killing, Adams again expressed interest in weapon-screening technology. And soon, mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, intensified the debate over how to address gun violence, Politco reports.

“We have identified several new technologies that are not like metal detectors that are used at airports, where you have to empty your pockets and go through a long line to get in,” Adams said on WNYC radio in one of 10 interviews he gave the morning after that attack.

“You just walk normally through the system. It is not even detectable that the devices are there. And we think there is some great promise in this technology, and we are going to continue to explore that.”

In the New York City subway, the screening wouldn’t resemble airport checkpoints, an untenable solution for a system with 472 stations, all with multiple entrances.

Instead, Adams pointed to technology that uses sensors to detect metal but also can determine the shape of an object, such as a gun, while people pass by uninterrupted.

The state-run Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), not the mayor, controls the subway system. But Politico points out Adams would consult MTA officials about trying out new technology.

Even before the subway shooting, Adams said he sent his deputy mayor for public safety, Phil Banks, to travel the globe studying public safety technology. The mayor has also embraced the use of controversial facial recognition tools.

The move came as more people leave the city forever over crime rates – above ground as well as below.

“There are new models that are being used at …. ballparks, hospitals,” Adams said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“We believe we have a technology that we can use in the subway system that many passengers are not even going to be aware that they are walking past a device that could detect weapons and we are excited about the possibilities and I’m not going to leave any legal technology off the table when it comes down to keeping New Yorkers safe.”

Adams said he did not have one specific security system in mind and would be open to various technologies.

Report: Suspected New York City Monkeypox Case Awaits CDC Confirmation

Report: Suspected New York City Monkeypox Case Awaits CDC Confirmation

New York City health officials confirmed Friday that a patient suspected of having monkeypox has tested positive for orthopoxvirus, the broader group of diseases to which monkeypox belongs.

In a press release, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYCDHMH) announced that the patient had been placed in isolation and contact tracing efforts had begun. The agency said Thursday that if the lab test came back positive, it would be sent “be sent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] for confirmatory testing.”

The CDC has yet to verify the test results, NBC News reported.

Spectrum News NY 1 notes that New York State Health Commissioner Mary T. Basset released a statement on the potential New York monkeypox patient:

Reports of suspected cases of monkeypox in the United States and elsewhere are concerning. While a possible case in New York State awaits confirmatory testing by our local and federal partners, the Department has alerted health care providers in New York State so that they can consider this unusual diagnosis if their patients present with symptoms. The current risk to the public is low.

“Most people recover within several weeks and monkeypox has only been fatal in rare cases,” the AFP recently reported.

The potential presence of monkeypox – native to central and western Africa – in New York follows the confirmation of a case in a Massachusetts resident Wednesday who recently traveled to Canada, as Breitbart News documented. Since May 14, patients with the virus have been confirmed in Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Portugal, the NYCDHMH said. The source for the outbreak in continents other than Africa has not been determined, but in the past, cases have typically been associated with travel to the continent or animal bites, the city agency said. 

“Many of these global reports of monkeypox cases are occurring within sexual networks,” said poxvirus aficionado Inger Damon, MD, Ph.D., according to the CDC.

“On Monday, the WHO signalled that some of the cases confirmed recently in Britain surfaced among gay men,” the AFP noted. 

The lesions, bodily fluids, shared clothing, and bedsheets and blankets are avenues that the disease can be transmitted through, while it can also spread “through respiratory droplets typically in a close setting,” according to the CDC.

Radical Abortion Activists Block Entrance to New York City Church 

Radical Abortion Activists Block Entrance to New York City Church 

A group of radical pro-abortion activists blocked the entrance to Manhattan’s Basilica of Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral days after a U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion leaked that signaled the Court will overturn Roe v. Wade.

Pro-Life Catholics in the community have gathered for Mass and a rosary procession to a Planned Parenthood one block away from the church nearly every month for the past 14 years to protest this nation’s abortion laws. However, the group of Catholics were met by pro-abortion activists who blocked the church doors on Saturday.

The pro-abortion radicals were reportedly singing and chanting, “Thank God for abortion,” as they blocked the church’s entrance.

One protester, who reportedly goes by “Crackhead Barney,” arrived at the church doors in a bathing suit stuffed with baby dolls to mock pregnancy and abortion.

“Help me abort my babies,” she reportedly said as she danced on the floor in front of the church doors. This protester also reportedly “seemed to be looking for a fight,” and repeatedly called the church’s priest a “b**ch.”

As the National Review’s Kathryn Jean Lopez, who attended the protest, detailed:

The gal in the bathing suit certainly seemed to be looking for a fight, imploring the priest, Fr. Fidelis Moscinski, a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal — who she repeatedly referred to as “b**ch” — to come out and face her.

A few of us did make it over to Planned Parenthood. Fr. Fidelis in particular was continuously heckled. Childish stuff, mostly, making fun of the fact that his religious name is not his birth name.

Some Catholics on the scene kept calm and responded to the pro-abortion protesters by praying and singing hymns.

Pro-abortion activists have called for nationwide protests at churches this weekend after Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion was leaked on Monday. Alito’s draft comes to the “inescapable conclusion” that “a right to abortion is not deeply rooted in the Nation’s history and traditions.”
