    In a 5-4 decision, a divided U.S. Supreme Court ruled that foreigners who are in America illegally can be prosecuted for the crime of identity theft.

    While the ruling seems like a no brainer, the court was divided because the case involved the Immigration Control and Reform Act, which says any information provided on an I-9 work form can’t be used by law enforcement in any way — and that includes as evidence in a criminal case.

    “The Immigration Control and Reform Act (IRCA) makes it a federal crime to lie on the I-9 work authorization form, while limiting how the false information can be used,” Fox News reported. “Federal law also says information “contained in” the I-9 cannot be used for law enforcement other than specified exceptions — but the Supreme Court ruled that if workers use the same information in tax documents, they can face charges.”

    “Although IRCA expressly regulates the use of I–9’s and documents appended to that form, no provision of IRCA directly addresses the use of other documents, such as federal and state tax-withholding forms, that an employee may complete upon beginning a new job,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the court’s majority opinion. He was joined by fellow conservatives Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh.

    The IRCA also forbids state charges or civil cases against “those who employ, or recruit or refer for a fee for employment, unauthorized aliens,” but Alito noted that this “makes no mention of state or local laws that impose criminal or civil sanctions on employees or applicants for employment.”

    The Kansas Supreme Court had ruled in a case that charges were improper because “[t]he fact that this information was included in the W–4 and K–4 did not alter the fact that it was also part of the I–9.”

    Alito said that was a incorrect ruling.

    “Taken at face value, this theory would mean that no information placed on an I–9 — including an employee’s name, residence address, date of birth, telephone number, and e-mail address — could ever be used by any entity or person for any reason,” he wrote.

    Ukrainian authorities have launched a criminal investigation into an HIV nonprofit that receives huge sums of money from the U.S. government as well as leftwing billionaire George Soros. The foreign probe exposes one of many outrageous collaborative efforts between Uncle Sam and the Hungarian philanthropist who funds a multitude of projects worldwide aimed at spreading a radical globalist agenda. Learn more about the financial and staffing nexus between Soros’ Open Society Foundations (OSF) and the U.S. government in a Judicial Watch special report.

    In this latest case, the U.S. and Soros-funded nonprofit helped another Ukrainian group embezzle international assistance, according to a Ukrainian news report that cites a member of parliament. The elected official requested that the country’s National Police launch an investigation, which was officially announced a few days ago. The probe partially targets a controversial civil rights activist named Vitaly Shabunin who operates a scandal-plagued group—also funded by Soros—called Anticorruption Action Center (AntAC). During the 2016 U.S. presidential election Ukrainian prosecutors tried investigating the group’s activities but were ordered to stand back by the Obama administration. At the time Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office was looking into AntAC while investigating whether $4.4 million in U.S. funds to fight corruption had been improperly diverted.

    Now officials in the former Soviet republic allege that a Ukrainian HIV charity that gets boatloads of money from American taxpayers as well as Soros, helped AntAC embezzle a chunk of it. Formerly known as All-Ukrainian Network of PLWH, the nonprofit is now called 100% Life and its mission is to fight for the life of people living with HIV in Ukraine’s 25 regions. Thanks to the generous contributions of donors such as American taxpayers, the group annually provides services to nearly 200,000 patients throughout Ukraine. The Ukrainian lawmaker who prompted the investigation says the scheme involved “embezzlement of international technical assistance through the All-Ukrainian Network of PLWH (now 100% Life Charity Fund).” From 2015 to 2017, PLWH-controlled structures received around $142 million, the Ukrainian official revealed in the news report.

    A generous portion of it came from American taxpayers, according to government records obtained by Judicial Watch. They show that, since 2012, the U.S. has doled out more than $25 million in grants to 100% Life. Most of the money has flowed through the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), though one grant for $3.5 million came from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). It is not clear whether the criminal probe will have an impact on the U.S. government’s funding. The head of 100% Life’s board of directors, HIV-infected activist Dmytro Sherembey, is also named in the recently launched investigation. Last year he published a book about AIDS that promotes the legalization of sex work and illicit drug use without punishment.

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — As the search for two missing boaters in the Chesapeake Bay continues Friday, we’re learning that the missing boaters are members of the Kennedy family.

    The missing boaters are 40-year-old Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean, and her eight-year-old son Gideon.


    The Kennedy family issued a statement Friday, confirming the news and asking for prayers.

    “At this time, our family asks for privacy and that everyone keep Maeve and Gideon in their prayers,” they said through a family friend.

    McKean is the daughter for former Maryland lieutenant governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and the granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy.

    She is the executive director of the Georgetown University Global Health Initiative in Washington D.C. where the family resides. She married her husband David in 2009 and they have three other children.

    Maryland DNR officials said the pair were reported missing around 4:49 p.m. Thursday near Herring Bay in Shady Side. According to officials, they had paddled out to retrieve a ball and were unable to paddle back to shore.

    Officials found the body of Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean on Monday, four days after she and her 8-year-old son went missing while paddling a canoe in the Chesapeake Bay. McKean was last seen with her son on Thursday afternoon “struggling to return to shore in a canoe,” near Annapolis, according to a Coast Guard statement. Her son, Gideon Joseph Kennedy McKean, has not yet been found. Maryland Natural Resources Police said in a statement that they found McKean “deceased in 25 feet of water and about 2.5 miles south of her mother’s residence in Shady Slide, Maryland where the canoe was launched.” McKean, 40, was the daughter of former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and the granddaughter of former U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.

    “Our hearts are crushed,” McKean’s mother said in a statement on Friday, “yet we shall try to summon the grace of God and what strength we have to honor the hope, energy and passion that Maeve and Gideon set forth into the world.” McKean was a public health official, human rights lawyer, and served as the executive director of Georgetown University Global Health Initiative when she disappeared.

    Police say the body of Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean’s 8-year-old son, Gideon, was found Wednesday afternoon — six days after he and his mother vanished into the choppy waters of the Chesapeake Bay in a deadly canoe accident.

    McKean’s body had been found two days earlier, on Monday. An air and water search led authorities to find Gideon’s body about 2,000 feet away from his mother, according to a police report.

    Officials said separately that Maeve had accidentally drowned.

    McKean’s body was discovered two and a half miles from her mother’s waterfront property in Shady Side, Maryland, where she and Gideon had launched their canoe in order to retrieve a stray ball during a game of kickball on Thursday, according to McKean’s husband.

    But high winds carried the mother-son duo out into open water of the larger bay where they were also beset by high waves.

    “Gideon and Maeve were playing kickball by the small, shallow cove behind the house, and one of them kicked the ball into the water,” David wrote in a Facebook post Friday, the same day he presumed his wife and son had passed away.

    “The cove is protected, with much calmer wind and water than in the greater Chesapeake,” David wrote. “They got into a canoe, intending simply to retrieve the ball, and somehow got pushed by wind or tide into the open bay.”

    About 30 minutes after first setting out, they were spotted from shore by an onlooker who called 911. But McKean and Gideon soon vanished from sight and were not seen alive again after first responders arrived on scene.

    “It looked like they were being pushed out into the water and were having a hard time returning to shore,” Anne Arundel County Fire Department Capt. Russ Davies told PEOPLE.

    Local meteorologists tell PEOPLE the weather in Shady Side, Maryland was typical for early April but that the early spring is the windiest time of year there.

    Wind gusts reached as high as 35 mph on Thursday afternoon, when Maeve and Gideon went missing.

    “The bay is an odd combination between a lake and a part of the ocean,” Ray Martin, a senior meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Baltimore office, told PEOPLE. “It’s pretty closed off from the ocean, so you don’t see ocean waves or anything like that, but it’s certainly much larger than your average lake. It’s more like a Great Lake, which can have ocean-like conditions sometimes. You can go from days that are very calm to days that are quite stormy. You can get a lot of variation.”

    Their canoe and paddle were found later on Thursday.
