Legal Fight Over Nashville Shooter Manifesto Continues

Republican Tennessee lawmakers want the Covenant school shooter’s writings, medical records, and toxicology reports to be made public.

Irish Asylum Seekers

America isn’t the only nation experiencing a mass influx of asylum-seekers.

Mass protests against that plan have rocked the small country of five million. According to The Irish Examiner, the Irish Refugee Council has called for asylum-seekers to be taken off the streets in the wake of those protests. Now, the Irish government is seriously considering housing the refugees in cruise ships off the coast of Cork known as “floatels.”
