In other news, the sprawling tent city in Tornillo, Texas the Trump regime used to house over 2,000 immigrant children is finally being shut down.

Meanwhile, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association has filed a lawsuit against the federal government for forcing employees to work without pay.

Finally, U.N. Human Rights Council officials say that, despite the friendly face Kim Jong-un has put on for the world to see, most of North Korea continues to operate like a prison.

Blocked by the government from visiting North Korea, U.N. special rapporteur for human rights in North Korea Tomas Quintana visited South Korea this week as part of an investigation that will be provided to the U.N. Human Rights Council in March. [...]

[The] United Nations has confirmed the continued use of political prison camps housing “thousands” of inmates, Quintana said, quoting one source as saying “the whole country is a prison”.

He said witnesses who recently left North Korea reported facing widespread discrimination, labor exploitation and corruption in daily life.

There is also a “continuing pattern of ill-treatment and torture” of defectors who escaped to China only to be returned to North Korea by Chinese authorities, Quintana said.

Have a good weekend.
