EAGLE PASS, Texas (AP) — A federal judge in Louisiana is refusing to end pandemic-related restrictions on migrants seeking asylum on the southern border. The judge on Friday blocked a plan by President Joe Biden’s administration to lift the restrictions next Monday.

TOKYO (Reuters) -President Joe Biden arrived in Japan on Sunday to launch a plan for greater U.S. economic engagement with the Indo-Pacific, facing criticism even before the programme is announced that it will offer scant benefit to countries in the region.

Biden meet with Japanese business leaders, including the president of Toyota Motor Corp, at the ambassador's residence in Tokyo shortly after arriving, said a person familiar with the matter.

Aimée Hutchinson can't remember a time when horses weren't a part of her life. "It started at the age of three when I fell in love with horses for no reason, living in the middle of the city with parents who didn't know anything about horses," she said of her childhood in Moncton. "One day we went for a bike ride and there happened to be pony rides, right there" in the Kmart parking lot. "And I just couldn't leave." From then on, Hutchinson knew horses were her destiny. She began taking riding l

After the Russian Defense Ministry announced late Friday that its forces had removed the last Ukrainian fighters from the plant's miles of underground tunnels, concern mounted for the Ukrain
