Biden's Executive Order Overhauls Asylum Rules at US-Mexico Border
US President Joe Biden has issued an executive order that significantly tightens asylum rules and restricts the right of asylum at the southern border with Mexico.

Shift in EU Parliament Dynamics: Right-Wing Surge and Political Alliances

Shift in EU Parliament Dynamics: Right-Wing Surge and Political Alliances
The European Union is witnessing a notable shift towards right-wing ideologies as right-wing parties gain traction in the EU Parliament. Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni emerges as a pivotal figure in uniting the right-wing bloc, potentially acting as a kingmaker in the upcoming European Parliament. Despite the current majority composition of Social Democrats, Liberals, and the European People's Party (EPP), a noticeable power shift towards the right is becoming evident. Projections indicate a centrist majority in the Parliament but also foresee gains for far-right parties, potentially altering the balance of power. The far right is projected to secure a significant portion of seats in the Parliament, although internal divisions may limit its actual political influence. On the other hand, warnings were issued about potential far-right alliances, with concerns voiced by candidates like Javi López and Swedish Social Democrats regarding the risk of a far-right alliance in the European Parliament. Issues like climate change, migration, and European cooperation are highlighted as pivotal. Amid the upcoming European elections, there is mounting pressure on Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk to dismiss a possible alliance between the EPP and the right-conservative ECR group. The Socialists and Democrats (S&D) faction in the European Parliament rejects right-wing alliances, emphasizing cooperation with progressive parties to strengthen the EU. Concerns over collaboration with far-right parties, such as the ID group, have also emerged in Sweden, with divisions within the ruling coalition on this matter. As the elections approach, challenges loom for various parties, highlighting the significance of voter awareness and key issues. The rise of right-wing policies on various fronts like the environment, gender, and immigration reflects a new challenge posed by increasingly right-leaning governments in the EU.
