    That just means that they have to treat their own state's residents the same. Doesn't say anything about migration of "such person" citizens from state to state. Is migration not the same as entry? Doesn't say citizens; is that a right that you want to give to everyone?

    The Palestinians threatened on Saturday to suspend all communication with the United States if the Trump administration follows through with plans to close their diplomatic office in Washington. The potential rupture in relations threatens to undermine President Donald Trump's bid for Mideast peace — a mission he has handed his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.Senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said the U.S. decision was "very unfortunate and unacceptable," and accused Washington of bowing to pressure from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government "at a time when we are trying to cooperate to achieve the ultimate deal." In a video statement on social media, Erekat said: "We will put on hold all our communications with this American administration." There was no immediate reaction from the Trump administration. Netanyahu's office said the closure was "a matter of U.S. law." U.S. officials had insisted before Erekat's statement that the move wasn't aimed at increasing leverage over the Palestinians, but merely the unavoidable consequence of U.S. law. Cutting off ties would carry great risks for the Palestinians. It could antagonize an administration they already suspect is biased toward Israel and cut put millions of dollars of critical U.S. aid in jeopardy.

    For multiple days in 1770, a swath of sky over Japan, the Korean Peninsula, and the eastern coast of China looked as if it had been set ablaze, illuminated in a scorching red light. No one knew what caused it, and we only knew it happened thanks to a few scant recordings that survived the intervening centuries. It wasn’t until modern astronomy gave us a better understanding of aurora events centuries later that we learned what prompted it: A magnetic storm caused by solar activity likely struck Earth’s atmosphere, creating a crimson spectacle few people have seen since. Now, new documents reveal that there is a lot more to the story than just a red hue to the sky. A team of Japanese researchers unearthed a trove of 111 historical documents in East Asia that show that the red auroral display actually lasted not two days as we thought, but nine, from Sept, 10–19, 1770. The storm may have been the longest geomagnetic storm on human record, and the region of sky it covered was twice as large as historians initially thought. Red auroras like the one in 1770 are caused by solar particles hitting oxygen particles in the atmosphere Aurora are caused by charged particles hitting the planet’s upper atmosphere. When the sun spews out a flare or has a violent belch of some sort, it shoots off charged particles like electrons toward the rest of space. When these particles hit the oxygen and nitrogen in Earth’s atmosphere, they charge up the gases themselves. As those excited gases return to their normal states, they emit that excess energy in the form of gorgeous celestial lights. One of the most famous and regular instances of aurora is, of course, aurora borealis—the northern lights—which captivates the upper latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. Aurora can come in different colors and shapes. Scientists are still fuzzy on what creates any specific shapes and sizes for the lights, but it’s thought that they move in harmony with Earth’s magnetic field. The color generated depends on which gases were initially hit—oxygen emits a red light (as well as greenish-yellow), so it would seem oxygen was behind the 1770 storm. That also means it was powerful enough to pierce into some lower portions of the atmosphere where oxygen is more abundant, which explains how it was able to give the sky such an apocalyptic makeover. The documents discovered were all written in September and October of 1770. They include government records and personal diary entries, which in sum suggest that the fiery aurora ranged from Japan to the Chinese mainland. The team also compared sunspot drawings made by astronomers at the time with drawings recorded during the solar storm of 1859. That storm, which lasted two nights, was caused by the Carrington flare and is something of a standard by which astronomers assess other solar events. Up until now, it’s been considered the most extreme solar storm on the record. But the sunspots drawn during the 1770 event were twice as big as those recorded during the Carrington event.

    The Israeli military says it has fired a tank shell into Syria as a "warning shot" after the Syrian military conducted construction along their border. The military says Syria violated the 1974 cease-fire agreement on the Golan Heights Saturday by using heavy tools to fortify a military post in the demilitarized zone between the countries.

    Doesn't say anything about federal control over entry, in fact it says that states are the ones who admit others. What the authority over "migration" would be something else. And after the "migration" is over the federal government would have no power whatsoever. Your beloved ICE would just become a customs agency. If I were a state trying to encourage immigration, I would give out short tourist visas to get people into the country, and pass out the work and residency visas after that, at which point you'd be outside of the scope of federal control. Of course you would think that. That's the second alternate interpretation using your logic: federal control over the movement of everyone - including citizens - from state to state, and state authority of admission of anyone within their borders.

    Beginning in January, the military is switching from a traditional pension system, in which retirees receive a monthly check for life based on their pay and years of service, to one that also includes investment accounts, like those commonly available to civilian workers. The new “blended” system is based, in part, on recommendations by the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission. The system needed updating, the commission said, because the military’s pension system now leaves the vast majority of service members with no retirement savings when they leave the military. Service members now must serve at least 20 years to get a pension — hence its “20 or nothing” nickname. More than 80 percent of service members leave the military short of that minimum, according to the Defense Department. The new system still offers a monthly pension, but one calculated using a formula that reduces it by 20 percent, said Michael Meese, a retired Army brigadier general and chief operating officer of the American Armed Forces Mutual Aid Association, a nonprofit group that provides insurance and other financial services to military members. (The commission’s final report noted that while its benefits recommendations weren’t “budget driven,” they would nevertheless “substantially reduce” government spending.) But service members will also receive contributions to the Thrift Savings Plan, the federal government’s version of an investment-based, 401(k) retirement plan. The military will contribute a minimum of 1 percent of the service member’s pay, even if he or she contributes nothing. The military will also chip inasmuch as 4 percent more in matching contributions, for a maximum government contribution of 5 percent. (Service members already may contribute to the Thrift Savings Plan, known for its low-cost investment funds, but the military now makes no contributions.)

    “Donations have been pouring in from Alabama and from all over the country in an unprecedented way,” Moore campaign manager Brett Doster told The Post on Saturday. Moore’s campaign raised $500,000 in three days last week and ramped up its online fundraising efforts, Doster said. The embattled Republican collected more online donations between Nov. 10 and Nov. 15 — the first six days after the scandal broke — than in the six weeks after winning the GOP nomination in a contentious September primary, Doster confirmed. “We are confident that we will have the resources over the next three weeks to finish strong with victory,” he said.

    No, the power to forbid grants everything else, all the congress must do is say "We forbid entry to anyone who does not follow the rules set forth as follows" then list the rules, anyone not following them would be forbidden. The states may have the power to be MORE restrictive and require foreigners to meet more strenuous standards to enter their territory.

    Following your logic, Congress has the power to forbid only; in other words, they would have no regulatory power whatsoever. The department of state would not operate consulates or issue visas. Each state could issue its own tourist, work, and permanent residency visas, and every other state would have to accept them. Therefore, the immigration system for the entire country would be dictated by the most permissive state, or the state most interested in profiting from visa sales. Which state do you suppose that would be? How easy would it be to get permanent us residency under your system?

    No, Congress is granted the power, read the whole sentence not just the part I was emphasizing: Article 1 Section 9. The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight The question of whether states can control their borders is not addressed in A1S9, you could claim that they have that power under the 10th amendment since it is not prohibited them anywhere in the constitution but that has nothing to do with A1S9.

    The State could do that, sure. And the SCOTUS would deny certiorari. No court will ever review this decision.
