(NORWAY) #Coronavirus Report: Ten people have tested positive for #COVID19 on board a Norwegian Cruise Line ship bound for New Orleans, despite the strict rules in place that required that all passengers and crew be vaccinated #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Dec.06: The vessel had departed the same city on November 28, and was scheduled to return there this weekend. On its route, the Norwegian Breakaway called at a number of ports in Belize, Honduras, and Mexico, according to the Louisiana Department of Health. More than 3,200 people are believed to be on board.

#CoronavirusNewsDesk says that a #COVID19 outbreak on cruise ship with over 3,000 passengers with 10-people who have tested positive on board a Norwegian Cruise Line ship that was bound for New Orleans, despite the strict rules in place that required that all passengers and crew be vaccinated according to RT News

Covid outbreak on cruise ship with over 3,000 passengers

Officials said in a statement that the cruise line “has been adhering to appropriate quarantine and isolation protocols as new cases and exposures have been identified.

Children offered secret ride to vaccination clinic

On arrival in New Orleans, each passenger and crew member will undergo testing. Anyone presenting with Covid will have to immediately go into quarantine, either at home or in accommodation provided by the cruise line.

So far, there is no information on the condition of the 10 passengers who are sick with Covid. The outbreak occurred despite Norwegian’s rules, which require all passengers and crew members to have been vaccinated against the virus at least two weeks prior to any trip.

Cruise ships gained notoriety last year, when the coronavirus began spreading across the globe and passengers were often denied the right to disembark. Forced to quarantine on board, some ended up dying at sea, while others eventually had to be rushed to hospital as their condition dramatically deteriorated. This prompted the US authorities to suspend all cruises for several months.

(NEW ORLEANS, La.) U.S. Marshals SOIB Report: Service Eastern District of Louisiana New Orleans Task Force (USMS)-led, operations Missing Child Unit (MCU) ‘Return of the School Year’ and Sex Offender Investigations Branch (SOIB) #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.22: NO Saints and Sinners 2021’ conducted in the New Orleans, Louisiana metro area ran from August 01st until September 30, 2021, resulting in the rescue or recovery of 8 missing/endangered children. An additional 3 children self-returned during the operation and 3 more were located. MCU Investigations led to recoveries in Phoenix, Arizona where a female teen was in route to Las Vegas, NV to meet up with an older adult male she met on the internet.

#AceDailyNews reports on U.S. Marshals Operations ‘Return of the School Year’ and ‘No Saints and Sinners’ Recovers Eight Missing Endangered Children and Makes Eighteen Arrests of Sex Offenders with two recoveries were made in a rural area of southern Mississippi.

One arrest was made in St. Bernard Parish involving an adult family member of the missing/endangered teen. A rifle stolen out of New Orleans was recovered in Tangipahoa Parish on August 27th during one of the MCU investigations that also involves possible gang activity. Investigations as part of the two-month MCU operation also uncovered allegations of human sex trafficking of minors during several of the cases.

The USMS SOIB Operation NO Saints and Sinners 2021, a sex offender enforcement and compliance check operation resulted in the arrests of 18 sex offenders for sex offender registration violations. 46 sex offender compliance checks were done during the operation with 33 verified compliant, 3 verified as being noncompliant, and 10 needing further investigation. These checks were done in both Jefferson and Orleans Parishes. One sex offender, Joseph Edward Cantrell, who had been in violation of his registration in Georgia since at least 2017 and having three prior convictions involving children was located living in the Central Business District of New Orleans and was arrested on a LA State Police felony warrant for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. Another lifetime registration sex offender from Delaware, Roman E. Byler, having two prior felony sex-based convictions with juveniles was located unregistered and living in New Orleans on August 23 in a high drug trafficking area walking with another male with a history of criminal activities. Byler was wanted out of Delaware on an August 2021 felony warrant related to cutting off his Electronic Monitor (EM) and fleeing his Delaware Probation based on a prior DE conviction for Rape 4th Degree Sexual Penetration of a Victim less than 16 years of age. Fugitive Tier 3 sex offender, Gerald Dominick, who’s original sex-based conviction involved a female teenage victim was wanted on a LA State Police warrant for felony Failure to Register as a Sex Offender issued in July 2020. Dominick was residing in Westwego, LA and attempted to hide in a bedroom prior to his arrest by LA State Police. Information developed by the USMS Sex Offender Targeting Team assisted LA State Police in locating him.

Additionally, the SOIB operation resulted in the arrest of six (6) additional fugitives to include an adult male wanted by New Orleans Police on a September 2021 warrant for Sexual Battery on a 7 year old victim, another adult male on a New Orleans Police Department warrant for 2 counts of Production of Child Porn on a 14 year old female victim that was related to a prior USMS MCU case, and an adult male on a July 2021 Orleans Parish Criminal District Court Capias based on a Grand Jury Indictment for Aggravated Rape and Aggravated Kidnapping that occurred in 1989 but the suspect was recently identified via a DNA hit. That fugitive had recently been released from prison and was already considered a habitual offender and lifetime sex offender registration (Tier 3) based on a prior Forcible Rape and Burglary conviction.

New Orleans was one of the original U.S. cities to begin a USMS pilot program for the Missing Child Unit in 2016, and U.S. Marshals Service Eastern District of Louisiana Deputy U.S. Marshals have provided instruction to other USMS districts and state agencies on how to coordinate their MCU operations, which have gained national news attention within the last two years.

The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015 enhanced USMS authority to assist federal, state, and local law enforcement with the recovery of missing, endangered or abducted children, regardless of whether a fugitive or sex offender was involved. The USMS established its Missing Child Unit to oversee and manage the implementation of its enhanced authority under the act. In fiscal year (FY) 2021, the USMS New Orleans Task Force recovered 43 missing/endangered children or family abductions. An additional 16 children self-returned during the investigation and 5 children were recovered via other efforts.

“This was another example of the results that can be accomplished with continuing law enforcement teamwork, and I am very proud of the long-term partnerships created by our USMS New Orleans Task Force with other local, state and federal agencies in combating violent crime and recovering missing/endangered children, said U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Louisiana Scott Illing. “Much of this work was also accomplished while dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Ida in the New Orleans metro area.”

Participants in the two Operations: “Return of the School Year” and “NO Saints and Sinners 2021” included:

  • U.S. Marshals Service New Orleans Task Force
  • U.S. Marshals Service Districts of Southern Mississippi and Arizona 
  • New Orleans Police Department

  • Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office
  • St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office
  • Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office
  • Louisiana State Police
  • FBI New Orleans Field Office
  • Louisiana Department of Child and Family Services

(NEW ORLEANS) ICE/ERO REPORT: HRVWCC Investigation: Agents have deported a ‘Rwandan National’ on Friday back to his own country and turned him over to the law #AceNewsDesk report

ICE/ERO Officers have removed a Rwandan citizen for human rights violations: Beatrice Munyenyezi was sentenced to ten years in federal prison for procuring her naturalization based on false statements to immigration officers about her role in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Munyenyezi participated, aided, and abetted in the persecution and murder of Tutsi people. Her conviction was the first in the United States for concealing one’s personal participation in the Rwandan genocide.

Munyenyezi was a member of the National Republican Movement for Democracy and Development (MRND), the political party in power during the genocide and its youth wing, the Interahamwe. The Interahamwe ran a militia that played a key role in the genocide. Witnesses testified that Munyenyezi staffed a roadblock near the Hotel Ihuriro in Butare, Rwanda, where she personally inspected IDs and decided who would pass and who would be selected for inevitable death. Some victims were assaulted at the roadblock; others were led to a nearby forest where they were killed.

On March 10, 1998: Munyenyezi entered the United States after making false statements to obtain status; she adjusted her status to lawful permanent resident on January 19, 2001, and on July 18, 2003, became a naturalized U.S. citizen. Agents from ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations’ Boston field office spent over six years investigating Munyenyezi, traveling to Rwanda nine times to identify and interview witnesses. In 2010, HSI Boston special agents arrested Munyenyezi for unlawful procurement of U.S. citizenship:

“Beatrice Munyenyezi concealed her past to wrongly obtain United States citizenship, obscuring her direct participation in the Rwandan Genocide — an atrocity of immense scale which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women, and children,” said William S. Walker, acting special agent in charge for Homeland Security Investigations’ Boston field office. “Homeland Security Investigations special agents work tirelessly to investigate and seek prosecution for those who commit human rights violations and seek a safe haven here in the United States.”

On February 21, 2013: Munyenyezi was found guilty of two counts of Unlawful Procurement of Citizenship or Naturalization in the U.S. District Court in New Hampshire, based on false statements on her immigration forms about her membership in the MRND and the Interahamwe. On July 15, 2013, the court sentenced Munyenyezi to 10 years in federal prison. Munyenyezi filed several appeals of her conviction including a petition for review and a petition for writ of habeas corpus. On March 3, 2021, the First Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s denial of her motion to vacate her conviction:

While serving her federal sentence, ICE initiated removal proceedings against Munyenyezi. On March 16, 2020, an immigration judge ordered Munyenyezi removed from the United States to Rwanda and on January 27, 2021 the Board of Immigration Appeals dismissed her appeal of the immigration judge’s order.

“This removal sends a clear message that the United States will not be a hiding place for those who commit heinous human rights violations,” said Caridad Cephas-Kimbrough, acting field office director for ERO New Orleans. “The tireless dedication our enforcement and removal officers and HSI partners put into this case is a testament to their commitment to enforce our nation’s immigration laws and ensure human rights violators like Munyenyezi are held to those laws.”

The criminal prosecution and subsequent appeals were litigated by attorneys in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston and New Hampshire with support from ICE Boston, Office of the Principal Legal Advisor. The removal case was handled by attorneys from ICE New Orleans, Office of the Principal Legal Advisor and Enforcement and Removal Operations. DOJ’s Office of Immigration Litigation also litigated the case.

The enforcement efforts targeting Munyenyezi were supported by ICE’s Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center (HRVWCC). Established in 2009 to further ICE’s efforts to identify, locate and prosecute human rights abusers in the United States, the HRVWCC leverages the expertise of a select group of agents, attorneys, intelligence and research specialists, historians and analysts who direct the agency’s broader enforcement efforts against those who are known or suspected to have participated in persecution, war crimes, genocide, torture, extrajudicial killings, female genital mutilation, and the use or recruitment of child soldiers.

Since 2003: ICE has arrested more than 460 individuals for human rights-related violations of the law under various criminal and/or immigration statutes. During that same period, ICE obtained deportation orders and/or physically removed from the United States 1,064 known or suspected human rights violators. Additionally, ICE has facilitated the departure of an additional 172 such individuals from the United States:

Currently: HSI has more than 155 active investigations into suspected human rights violators and is pursuing more than 1,675 leads and removal cases involving suspected human rights violators from 95 different countries. Since 2003, the HRVWCC has issued more than 77,000 lookouts for individuals from more than 110 countries and stopped over 333 human rights violators and war crimes suspects from entering the U.S:

Members of the public who have information about foreign nationals suspected of engaging in human rights abuses or war crimes are urged to call the ICE tip line at 1-866-DHS-2423 (1-866-347-2423). Callers may remain anonymous. To learn more about the assistance available to victims in these cases, the public should contact ICE’s confidential victim-witness toll-free number at 1-866-872-4973.

ICE continues to implement interim civil immigration enforcement priorities directed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to focus its limited resources on threats to national security, border security, and public safety. ICE carries out its duty to enforce the laws of the United States in accordance with the Department’s national security and public safety mission.

#UKGovNews : ” Ninety Three Percent of `People Polled’ said `Tax Payer Should Not Subsidise MP’S Meals’ to the `Tune of £5.8 Million’ Per Annum”

#AceNewsServices says `WHAT? NO MARTINI’ and Some
MPS COMPLAIN ABOUT SUBSIDISED CATERING AT HOUSE OF COMMONS

24 January 2014 11:44 AM

It’s a tough life at the House of Commons. Aperitifs are in short supply, the Cajun food is poor and there is a dearth of ‘fresh game’ on the lunchtime menu.

Those are the views, at least, of a few anonymous MPs whose views have been revealed by a recent Freedom of Information requestMetro has reported.

Though officials reportedly said the number of complaints was relatively small, the extravagance of requests knew no bounds. Chitterlinks (pigs intestines) and a live jazz band were among some of the suggestions made.

To one anonymous MP, the poor selection of pre-dinner drinks was a particular source of dissatisfaction.

‘We were told by the waiter that there was no martini. I then enquired about a gin and tonic, a Campari or even a sherry for my guest only to be told that, no, only wine was available,’ said the MP.

‘All rather embarrassing, don’t you think? Whoever is in charge of the drinks stock should really get their act together.’

Cooking methods also provoked indignation. One MP commented: ‘ Having been to New Orleans and being an excellent Cajun cook myself I can assure you that there are NO potatoes in gumbo’.

The MP went on: ‘I think the potato thing is getting out of hand. Yes, I know our meals are ‘‘subsidised’’ by the taxpayer but we really have very little choice but to dine in the House.’

The complaints come despite the fact government meals are subsidised by the taxpayer to the tune of£5.8 million a year, meaning a pint of beer inside the Commons costs just £1.70 (less than the going rate at a local Weatherspoons) and a slow-cooked pork belly and vegetables main rings in at £3.55.

Should the taxpayer continue subsidising Westminster meals and drinks?
