“MIAMI (AP) — A former Haitian senator is facing charges in the United States related to last year’s assassination of former Haiti President Jovenel Moïse, authorities said.

John Joel Joseph made his initial appearance Monday in Miami federal court, according to court records. The Haitian citizen was extradited from Jamaica to the U.S. on Friday to face charges of conspiring to commit murder or kidnapping outside the United States and providing material support resulting in death, knowing or intending that such material support would be used to prepare for or carry out the conspiracy to kill or kidnap. He faces a possible life sentence.

According to a criminal complaint, Joseph and others, including about 20 Colombian citizens and several dual Haitian-American citizens, participated in a plot to kidnap or kill Haiti’s president, who was ultimately slain at his home in Haiti on July 7.

Joseph was arrested in Jamaica in January along with his wife and two sons.”

The policy, officially named the “Migrant Protection Protocols” (MPP), requires some asylum-seekers to be sent back to Mexico during immigration proceedings.

In December, U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk halted the Biden administration’s latest attempt to end the program while a legal challenge, launched by Texas and Missouri aimed at forcing its reinstatement, is considered in court.”

According to this article on NPR, by Domenico Montanaro

“The State of the Union represents a chance for the president to address the nation on where he thinks the country stands, where it is headed and what his priorities are ahead of an expected announcement that he will officially run for reelection.

But President Biden, who turned 80 this past November, has quite the task ahead of him. Despite an unemployment rate that is the lowest since 1969, Americans continue to be in a sour mood about the direction of the country. Two-thirds say it is headed in the wrong direction, and a majority disapproves of the job Biden is doing as president.

That’s true not just on the economy and inflation, but on issues ranging from crime and guns to immigration and the war in Ukraine.”

In divided nation, Americans do agree on this: Biden should talk about economy — CBS News poll

According to this article on CBS News, by Anthony Salvanto, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus, Kabir Khanna

“The state of our union is … ?

We asked people to describe it, and received some dour assessments: they picked “divided” most of all, followed by “declining” and “weak.” Few picked adjectives “strong,” or — amid tough economic ratings — “prospering.”

These aren’t just one-sided partisan points. Partisans share the sense of division and decline more than prosperity. It is in part a function of such dire views of the economy and inflation right now.

In all, it’s a tough environment for a president addressing Congress and the nation.”
