  • USDA Grants Mr. Claus Movement Permit in U.S.

    first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News USDA Grants Mr. Claus Movement Permit in U.S. SHARE The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) today issued a movement permit to Mr. S. Nicholas Claus of the North Pole, a broker with Worldwide Gifts, Unlimited. The permit will allow reindeer to enter and exit the United States between the hours of 7 p.m. December 24, 2019 and 7 a.m. December 25, 2019, through or over any U.S. border port.“With a growing world population, Mr. Claus will have his busiest Christmas yet. At USDA, we want to ensure we are not hindering Mr. Claus’ important work of spreading Christmas Cheer for all to hear,” said Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue. “Ease of access into the United States for Mr. Claus and his nine reindeer will ensure that children all over the country – including my own fourteen grandchildren – will wake up on Christmas morning with joy and filled with the spirit of the season. USDA issued this permit in advance and waived all applicable fees to help ensure a smooth trip on Christmas Eve night.”In addition to the normal disease testing requirements, flying reindeer must undergo additional tests to ensure they will be able to safely handle significant changes in altitude and temperature throughout their journey, and are fit for landing on rooftops. On this year’s health certificate, the accredited veterinarian noted that one of the reindeer named Rudolph was positive for “red nose syndrome,” however, it was also explained that this is normal for him and not an animal health concern. The veterinarian also verified the reindeer have been vaccinated against any diseases they could encounter on their trip around the world.At the request of Mr. and Mrs. Claus, APHIS also completed a courtesy welfare and humane treatment check of the reindeer facility. Mr. Claus and his staff passed with flying colors.They will arrive pulling a wooden sleigh with jingling bells attached, filled with brightly wrapped gifts. Port personnel will clean and disinfect the runners and underside of the sleigh at the time of entry, and will also conduct a short visual inspection of the reindeer. Mr. Claus will also have his boots disinfected and will thoroughly wash his hands. These measures are intended to prevent the entry of any livestock diseases the team may encounter during deliveries to farms around the world prior to entering the United States.“It would be a disaster for Worldwide Gifts, Unlimited, if my reindeer were to unintentionally bring in foot and mouth disease along with all the gifts,” explained Mr. Claus. “Why, something like that could put me out of business. That’s why we work all year to keep the reindeer healthy and take all possible precautions before and during our trip.”Mr. Claus has also provided an advance list of what port personnel should expect upon their arrival. This includes a variety of food items, all of which come from approved locations and none of which pose a threat to U.S. animal or plant health.

The Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) proposed servicing reforms are limiting credit access to borrowers by altering the time frame for filing insurance claims.The Urban Institute released a report Monday detailing how the FHA’s proposed servicing rule would implicate prospective FHA borrowers by limiting their credit access.The report’s author, Laurie Goodman, director of the Housing Finance Policy Center at the Urban Institute noted that in July 2015, the FHA proposed a new rule that would affect servicing FHA loans.”The changes that the FHA has proposed both raise the cost and increase the uncertainty of servicing delinquent FHA loans, and thus may ultimately affect access to credit.”The new rule would limit the maximum period for filing insurance claims with the FHA, which would limit access to credit. In addition the rule would also change policies concerning curtailment of interest and disallowance of certain expenses incurred by servicers.”Servicers are imposing overlays on the FHA credit box partly because they are concerned about both the high costs associated with servicing delinquent FHA loans and the inability to adequately price for foreclosure-related uncertainty,” Goodman said. “The latter includes the fluctuating costs associated with long timelines, property preservation, and conveyance, as well as the unpredictability of when at what cost servicing can be transferred. The changes that the FHA has proposed both raise the cost and increase the uncertainty of servicing delinquent FHA loans, and thus may ultimately affect access to credit.”Previously, HUD did not have a specific deadline as to when a servicer must file an insurance claim and claims could be filed at any time as long as the servicer complies with all requirements. The newly proposed regulation requires servicers to file claims no more than 12 months after the “reasonable diligence time frame” (RDT) expires or the insurance will terminate automatically.Problems from the Lender or Servicer Perspective:First, the RTD-plus-12-month time frame to file a claim is simply unrealistic.Second, the proposed rule is silent on how to handle reconveyances.Finally, having the insurance terminate automatically and without notice will generate considerable uncertainty for lenders and servicers.The proposed rule also raises concerns for servicers, borrowers, Ginnie Mae (GNMA), and the mortgage market as a whole. The new time frame could negatively affect borrowers who may benefit from loan modifications late in the foreclosure process. Higher risk of losses could occur as GNMA bear the counterparty risk on its originators.”The proposed rule is a mixed bag, but on balance far more negative than positive,” Goodman said. “It represents a modest improvement to very harsh rules for missing established deadlines. But it imposes an unrealistic timeline for filing FHA insurance claims and an overly punitive penalty for missing that timeline. We worry that this latter change will increase the uncertainty associated with servicing delinquent loans, unnecessarily tightening access to credit and the assistance provided to some struggling borrowers.”The Urban Institute is encouraging comments on the FHA’s proposal until September 4, 2015.Click here to view the complete report The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Home / Daily Dose / Do the FHA’s Proposed Servicing Reforms Limit Borrowers’ Credit Access?last_img read more

  • Death of Guatemalan toddler detained by ICE sparks $60M legal claim

    first_imgYazmin Juarez(NEW YORK) — A Guatemalan toddler who died weeks after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border with her mother is at the center of a wrongful death claim that’s seeking $60 million from the federal government.Mariee Juarez and mother Yazmin, who told ABC News she was fleeing an abusive situation at home, illegally crossed into the United States earlier this year, but they were detained and taken to a family detention center in Dilley, Texas, where all medical care is provided by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Health Services.Medical records obtained by ABC News amid an ongoing investigation of health care practices in immigration detention centers in partnership with the nonprofit criminal justice watchdog The Marshall Project show there was no indication Mariee was sick when she entered the facility, but she soon developed a respiratory infection that Yazmin says was inadequately treated for nearly two weeks.Mariee visited the health clinic several times, medical records show, where she was seen on several occasions by physician assistants and a nurse, but she only saw an actual doctor once.“Frankly, to me, it was completely irresponsible,” Yazmin told ABC News of her daughter’s medical treatment at the Dilley facility. “I think they should think about the children. The children are little angels, and this is not their fault.”After 20 days at the detention facility, Yazmin and Mariee were released to fly to join Yazmin’s mother in New Jersey. According to Yazmin’s wrongful death filing, no medical personnel examined or cleared Mariee for the flight. Mariee’s condition worsened on the flight, and hours after landing she was taken to the emergency room. After six weeks in hospitals, she died.On Nov. 27, lawyers for Yazmin filed an administrative wrongful death claim seeking $60 million from the federal government. In a letter accompanying the claim, attorney R. Stanton Jones asserted “Mariee died because the medical care she received at the Dilley detention facility was woefully inadequate, neglectful, and substandard.”In response to questions from ABC News, an ICE spokesperson said the agency was unable to comment because of Yazmin Juarez’s legal claim but released a statement saying, “ICE takes very seriously the health, safety and welfare of those in our care … including providing access to necessary and appropriate medical care.”But critics say Mariee’s case is not an isolated one. Human Rights Watch, the prominent international research and advocacy organization, obtained medical records for 52 ICE detainees who’ve died since 2010, and their experts concluded that almost half of those death were linked to substandard healthcare.Dr. Mark Stern, a former healthcare consultant for the Department of Homeland Security who once investigated allegations of insufficient or poor healthcare at ICE facilities, said those records show people are “needlessly dying” in a “broken system.”“I’m not surprised that people are dying,” Stern told ABC News. “It is preventable.”For Yazmin, the tragedy has left her with an uncertain future.“After all the ugly things I lived in Guatemala, I had so many dreams for her, so many expectations,” she said.But she’s sure she knows why her daughter died.“I think it was because they did not care,” she said. “They didn’t care.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

  • Up to 30 llamas set loose after being stolen from exotic animal farm in California

    first_imgjeancliclac/iStock(PERRIS, Ca) —  Dozens of llamas were stolen and set loose from an exotic animal farm in Perris, California, following calls on social media that the animals were being mistreated, according to reports.Deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and officers from the Riverside County Department of Animal Services rounded up about 30 llamas after receiving calls that they were running amok along a busy roadway in Perris, some 70 miles east of Los Angeles, ABC Los Angeles station KABC reported.The llamas were freed after someone cut the lock to a fence and loaded them onto a truck before dawn on Monday, according to the station. The stolen animals were worth about $1.6 million, one worker told KABC.Neighbor James Aiken told KABC that he looked out his window and saw the llamas gallivanting down the street.“I thought, ‘That’s kind of strange,’” he said.The farm, which sits on 14 acres, houses other animals such as ostriches, alpacas, emus and water buffalo. The farm has been targeted on social media by activists who claim the animals are being abused and neglected.While the Riverside County code enforcement department is working with the property owner regarding violations on some overgrown land, animal control found no evidence of mistreatment after several visits, stating that the animals appear to be in good health and are watered and fed regularly, KABC reported.Animal control spokesman John Welsh told the Riverside Press Enterprise that the “rage on social media” prompted the department to send investigators to the property “almost every day” over the last week and a half. The caretakers started putting the feed near the property line to prove the animals were being cared for after a “public sideshow” resulted from the social media claims, he added.“It’s not a well-kept property, but we don’t have any evidence of animal abuse or neglect, whatsoever,” Welsh told the local newspaper.About 355 birds and hoofed animals live on the property, Welsh said.
