Poland missile blast; Trump announces 2024 run; Title 42 ruling

By ,

An investigation is underway into a missile blast in Poland; Donald Trump announced he is running for president in 2024; and a judge ordered the end of Title 42. These stories highlight the Daily Rundown for Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2022.

Poland missile blast – NATO leaders met Wednesday to discuss why and how a missile that Poland said was Russian-made came down in Polish farmland, killing two people. Polish President Andrzej Duda said there are no signs that the blast was a deliberate attack. According to U.S. officials, preliminary assessments suggested the was fired by Ukrainian forces at an incoming Russian missile.

“It’s unlikely, in the minds of the trajectory, that it was fired from Russia,” President Joe Biden said in remarks Wednesday. “We agreed to support Poland’s investigation into the explosion … and I’m going to make sure we figure out exactly what happened.”

Trump announces 2024 run – For the third time, former President Donald Trump officially launched his bid for president Tuesday night. The announcement came despite calls from members of his own party to wait until after next month’s Georgia runoff Senate election.

“I am running because I believe the world has not yet seen the true glory of what this nation can be. We have not reached that pinnacle,” former President Trump said at his announcement Tuesday night. “First, we have to get out of this ditch. And once we’re out, you’ll see things that nobody imagined for any country. It’s called the United States of America. And it’s an incredible place.”

Judges orders end to Title 42 – A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the Biden administration to lift Title 42 restrictions. The policy has been a cornerstone of border enforcement since the beginning of COVID-19.

In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan called the ban “arbitrary and capricious.”  He wrote that authorities failed to consider the impact on migrants, as well as possible alternatives to Title 42.

The Title 42 ruling came on the same day Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, R, announced Philadelphia will be the next destination for migrants the state is transporting by bus from the border. He did not say how many migrants were on board or whether more than one busload was sent. Gov. Abbott has already sent migrants to New York City, Washington, D.C., and Chicago.
