Trump Makes Misleading and False Claims on DACA | Immigration News (10/16/2020)

00:07-05:46 Trump and Joe Biden held concurrent town halls on two different networks last night. Trump appeared on NBC and Biden appeared on ABC. In Trump's appearance, he continued to downplay the coronavirus and said, without evidence, that ballots with his name on them had been found in garbage cans. He made misleading, false claims about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, saying DACA is “working right now.” 05:47-06:49 YouTube announced Thursday that it is expanding its hate and harassment policies to prohibit content from groups like QAnon, that targets an individual or group with conspiracy theories. QAnon has been used to justify real-world violence. It is the latest tech giant to crack down on QAnon content, which has seen record online interest in 2020.  06:50-09:38 Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie revealed Thursday that he spent seven days in an intensive care unit before recovering from Covid-19, and implored Americans to wear masks and take the pandemic "very seriously." In a statement, Christie said: "The ramifications are wildly random and potentially deadly. No one should be happy to get the virus and no one should be cavalier about being infected or infecting others." 09:39-10:31 According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University, there are now over 39 million novel coronavirus cases worldwide. Over 1.1 million people have died. Over 26.9 million people have recovered. In the United States, over 8 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19. America has had more than 218,000 deaths. Over 3.1 million people have recovered. 10:32-11:11 Freshman enrollment has dropped more than 16 percent from last year at American colleges and universities — and by nearly a quarter at community colleges. The cause, of course, is the threat of the coronavirus, the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center reported yesterday. 11:12-12:20 U.S. intelligence agencies warned the White House last year that Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani was the target of an influence operation by Russian intelligence, according to four former officials familiar with the matter. The Washington Post reports that the warnings were based on multiple sources, including intercepted communications, that showed Giuliani was interacting with people tied to Russian intelligence during a December 2019 trip to Ukraine. 12:21-12:47 The bad news for Giuliani continued when his daughter, Caroline Rose Giuliani, endorsed Joe Biden for president in an essay for Vanity Fair yesterday. In the essay, titled "Rudy Giuliani Is My Father. Please, Everyone, Vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris," the 31-year-old writer/director/actor, writes, "As a child, I saw firsthand the kind of cruel, selfish politics that Donald Trump has now inflicted on our country. It made me want to run as far away from them as possible."  12:48-13:49 Hormel Foods, known for its Black Label Bacon, announced the launch of "Breathable Bacon," which it calls "a revolutionary face mask featuring the latest in pork-scented technology." Now through Oct. 28 at, Hormel is giving away free masks and for every request will donate one meal to Feeding America, up to 10,000 meals. 13:50-14:58 A Minnesota man and his gigantic pumpkin are reigning royalty after taking home top prize in a Northern California pumpkin-growing competition. And the winning pumpkin is named “Tiger King,” after the popular Netflix series, due to the pumpkin’s striped coloring. Travis Gienger won first prize in the 47th annual Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off in Half Moon, California, on Monday for his 2,350-pound pumpkin, according to contest officials. 14:59-14:42 Last weekend, the Willamette River in Oregon was overtaken by what's become a familiar sight in Portland this time of year—a large coven of witches floating on stand-up paddle boards.
