Harry and Meghan’s Archewell charity found delinquent over unpaid fees and unable to fundraise

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Archwell Foundation has been found delinquent over unpaid fees and warned it could face fines or suspension. The delinquency notice was sent by California’s Attorney General Rob Bonta for failing to file its annual reports and renewal fees. As stated on California’s Department of Justice website, a notice is sent to an organisation after it fails to submit complete filings for each fiscal year. The Sussexes’ foundation was established after they stepped down from their roles as senior working royals and relocated to the US in March 2020. Delinquent charities are ordered to stop fundraising, can face penalties or have their registration suspended or revoked. According to a letter seen by Page Six, the note adds: “An organisation that is listed as delinquent is not in good standing and is prohibited from engaging in conduct for which registration is required, including soliciting or disbursing charitable funds.” Although the couple has yet to publically respond to the report, according to the Telegraph “a cheque for the money was sent but never arrived”. A second cheque has now been sent to resolve the matter within days, the newspaper adds. Named in honour of their son Archie, now aged five, the couple said the foundation’s core purpose was “quite simply, to do good”. Their mission statement reads: “We meet the moment by showing up, taking action, and using our unparalleled spotlight to uplift and unite communities, both local and global, online and offline.” The organisation’s 2021 filing, which was submitted last February, revealed that they had raised $13m (£10.3m) from benefactors, while they had given out $3m in grants. The following year, they suffered an $11m drop in donations, with only $2m in charitable donations received. News of the filing comes after the couple spent three days touring Nigeria, where they announced an expansion of their partnership between their foundation and the GEANCO Foundation in Abuka. The initiative, which provides menstrual health products and education for women, will now include mental health resources and training for young men and women. Ahead of travelling to the West African nation, Harry visited London to attend a ceremony to celebrate the 10th anniversary celebrations for the Invictus Games but was snubbed by King Charles. Despite both father and son being within miles of each other in the capital, the 75-year-old monarch attended a garden tea party and was reportedly “too busy” for a visit. “It’s all very sad,” a friend of the King reportedly told The Times. “While he was hardly going to roll out the red carpet the moment this Invictus trip was announced, with doctors advising him to focus on his treatment and recovery, the idea that he refused to find space in his diary…Well, let’s say recollections may vary once again.” The Independent has attempted to approach Archewell for comment.

Proposed Minnesota Equal Rights Amendment draws rival crowds to Capitol for crucial votes

Impassioned supporters and opponents of a far-reaching Equal Rights Amendment to the Minnesota Constitution flocked to the State Capitol ahead of crucial votes aimed at putting it on the 2026 ballot. However, the state House adjourned without voting on the bill Monday after it got bogged down in conference committees. It wasn’t immediately clear when the measure would be taken up on the floor. The amendment would guarantee some of the nation’s broadest protections of abortion and LGBTQ+ rights if it is approved by both chambers this session and then by voters in two years. Anti-abortion activists and conservative religious groups are campaigning to defeat it, but Democrats hold enough seats to pass what has been a top party priority. Dozens of green-clad ERA supporters holding signs saying “I AM AN EQUALITY VOTER” and “You Belong Here” with a rainbow flag design sang in a chorus outside the House chamber ahead of a floor session that was expected to last into the night. ERA opponents gathered alongside them, wearing red shirts and holding red “STOP ERA” signs. The amendment’s wording would prohibit the state from discriminating against anyone on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, disability or sex — including gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation. It does not include the word “abortion,” but that’s meant to be protected by prohibiting the state from discriminating against a person “making and effectuating decisions about all matters relating to one’s own pregnancy or decision whether to become or remain pregnant.” The Rev. Doug Donley, pastor of University Baptist Church in Minneapolis, showed up in rainbow colors, holding a pro-ERA sign. Transgender people “have always been part of the church. They’ve often had to hide the reality of who they are,” Donley said. “Church ought to be a place where people can be who they are fully.” His sister, Trish Donley, a retired obstetrics nurse in St. Paul, said she knows what can happen if a timely abortion is denied to someone in a health crisis. “People can bleed to death. People can have uterine ruptures, fallopian tube ruptures. It’s just not okay for someone else to decide that,” she said. Putting up red signs around the rotunda, David Mennicke, a music professor in St. Paul, wore a red shirt saying “NO CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT to kill unborn babies.” “A child in the womb is a human being at an early stage of development,” Mennicke said. The ERA “would enshrine in the constitution that this child is not worthy of life and has no rights. I’m speaking out for the rights of those who have no voice.” His wife, Katherine Mennicke, a retired special education teacher, said the kinds of children she worked with are often targeted for abortion. “I can’t support that — because I know them and love them. And they have wonderful things to contribute.” Ahead of the debate, Republicans proposed 17 changes to the ERA to try to blunt its impact. But Democrats control the House 70-64 and Democratic Majority Leader Jamie Long, of Minneapolis, said they had the votes to hold them off and pass the proposal. “Minnesotans believe in fairness. They believe in equality. They oppose discrimination,” Long told reporters. “These are all fundamental and core values that we hold dear. And today, we’re going to make sure that those are values that are not just protected by our law, but are protected by our Constitution.” Democrats hold just a one-seat majority in the Senate, which passed an ERA proposal last year that did not include explicit protections for abortion rights. This time, the House author, Democratic Rep. Kaohly Her, of St. Paul, said supporters hope the Senate simply accepts the House language so that negotiations aren’t needed to resolve the differences. ERA opponents have already launched a $1 million ad campaign, and staged a rally that drew hundreds of people to the Capitol last Wednesday. At news conferences last week, they said the amendment deceitfully glosses over how it would ensure that Minnesota has no restrictions on abortion. They also said it would infringe on religious freedom by not including people of faith as a protected class. And they said it could force people to endorse practices that violate their deeply held beliefs. “It advances moral progressivism, enabling the sexual revolution to bludgeon the religious beliefs of Minnesotans,” the Rev. Steven Lee, a pastor at The North Church in Mounds View, told reporters. Long and Her disputed this on Monday, saying that both the state and federal constitutions already protect religion. ___ Trisha Ahmed is a corps member for the Associated Press/Report for America Statehouse News Initiative.

Government to review migrant supports as tens of thousands of Ukrainian refugees face welfare cuts

The Government will tomorrow sign off on plans to make social welfare rates for all Ukrainians the same, €38.80 per adult and €29.80 for a child while refugees are in a designated accommodation centre. There are thousands of Ukrainian refugees currently receiving Jobseeker’s Allowance of €232 per week and this will be reduced to the same rates as new arrivals in 12 weeks. The 12 week lead in time will allow the Minister for Children Roderic O’Gorman and the Minister for Social Protection Heather Humphreys to give notice to the people affected. Both ministers will review entitlements of International Protection applicants and report back to government within six weeks. The new plans to get a handle on migration will be brought to cabinet by the Taoiseach, Minister O’Gorman, Minister Humphrey’s and Minister Helen McEntee. There will also be more targeted workplace inspections in sectors or firms where there is an increased risk or reports of non-compliance with the range of employment and workplace requirements and permit regulations under plans from Enterprise Minister Peter Burke. The list of safe countries is set to be expanded and there will also be a review of visa-free travel for all States from which there are significant numbers of international protection applicants. IPO offices will also have their staffing levels increased and the Government has already promised to put in faster processing of asylum applications, as well as the standing up of more safe and sanitary accommodation facilities on state lands. Meanwhile, migrants arriving in the North to escape the implications of the UK’s Rwanda bill may mean more asylum-seekers come into the State, a TD has warned. The UK government is expected to appeal a ruling by a judge that parts of the UK’s Rwanda law should not apply in Northern Ireland. The Illegal Migration Act gives powers to the British government to detain and remove asylum seekers it deems to have arrived illegally in the UK and central to the new laws is the scheme to send asylum seekers to Rwanda. A government spokesperson said the judgment will now be studied. “The government notes the court ruling in Belfast this afternoon,” they said. “We will study the judgment carefully, including with regard to the findings on compatibility with the European Convention on Human Rights which is, of course, central to the Good Friday Agreement.” The Government will still press on with its plans to pass laws to designate the UK a safe country, it is understood. ‘There is nothing to stop Ireland designating part of the UK, namely Northern Ireland, as a safe third country’ Immigration solicitor Sinéad Marmion told RTÉ that the judgment was “hugely significant” as it suggested if asylum seekers impacted by the act made their way to the North from the UK, they could not be sent to Rwanda. Her views were also echoed by Fianna Fáil justice spokesperson TD Jim O’Callaghan, who said asylum seekers in the North can be “treated no less preferably” than those in the State. He said this may mean that asylum seekers don’t have to go to the State to avoid deportation to Rwanda, but this may mean that more migrants go to Northern Ireland from the UK. “The arrival of more asylum seekers on the island of Ireland will inevitably mean more will apply for international protection in the Republic,” he said. “The judgment today underlines the importance of the Oireachtas promptly enacting legislation to make the UK a safe third country again. Even if there were doubts about designating all of the UK as a safe third country because of the Rwandan policy, there is nothing to stop Ireland designating part of the UK, namely Northern Ireland, as a safe third country to where asylum seekers could be returned.” He said the ruling also shows that supports for asylum seekers in Ireland must be “identical” to the ones in the North. “Otherwise all applicants will apply for international protection in the more generous location,” he said. Aontú TD Peadar Toibin also said that more people will “cross the Border and seek asylum in the south”. ‘To ignore what the courts have said would not be merely a case of sleepwalking into the creation of immigration border in the Irish Sea but rather embarking on such a path with eyes wide open’ “The Irish Government must now engage with the British government to ascertain how that will be managed. The loud hailer diplomacy that happened before the English local elections will not cut it,” he said. The DUPs Gavin Robinson warned the UK government that it must not facilitate the creation of an “immigration border” in the Irish Sea, with different rules applying in Northern Ireland to the rest of the UK. Mr Robinson insisted that his party had repeatedly warned the UK government that its immigrations laws were incompatible with post-Brexit arrangements contained in the Northern Ireland Protocol/Windsor Framework. “Whilst today’s judgment does not come as a surprise, it does blow the government’s irrational claims that the Rwanda scheme could extend equally to Northern Ireland completely out of the water,” he said. “For ministers to ignore what the courts have said would not be merely a case of sleepwalking into the creation of immigration border in the Irish Sea but rather embarking on such a path with eyes wide open. “It is imperative that immigration policy applies equally across every part of the United Kingdom.” Delivering his court judgment yesterday, Mr Justice Humphreys ruled that a several sections of the Illegal Migration Act would lead to a diminution of the rights of asylum seekers residing in Northern Ireland. The Government changed its offering for new arrivals in March

Son suspected of killing own mother, 2 sisters in Mother’s Day massacre shot dead hundreds of miles away

A Mother’s Day massacre left a woman and two of her daughters dead in Mississippi, officials said. The suspect died later hundreds of miles away. According to the Ridgeland Police Department, a man later identified as Ivory James Welch III, was the lead suspect in the death of his mother and two sisters when he fled town and the state, getting as far as Arizona before he was shot dead in a shootout with state troopers. Ridgeland Police Chief Brian Myers says officers received a call about the triple homicide around 3:30 p.m. Sunday at a home on Old Canton Road in Ridgeland, WLBT reported.

He was ultimately located by Arizona Department of Public Safety troopers between Morenci and Clifton, according to AZFamily. Officers from the Greenlee County Sheriff’s Office and the Clifton Police Department assisted in the Arizona pursuit, per the report. Once found by the law enforcement officers, a gunfight ensued, according to Myers. “Arizona State Troopers attempted to apprehend Welch and he fired upon the troopers and was fatally wounded in the gunfight,” he said. CALIFORNIA MOM DIES SAVING DROWNING DAUGHTER JUST BEFORE MOTHER’S DAY: SHERIFF Myers added: “This investigation is a great example of how teamwork in law enforcement, as well as a great relationship with our media outlets, affords us swift justice for a grieving family.” Mississippi ACLU released a statement remembering Crystal Welch, who served as Board President since 2023. “I just cannot process today’s news,” Executive Director Jarvis Dortch said. “Crystal was a great friend and since 2023, she was an enthusiastic leader of the ACLU of Mississippi Board of Directors. She was always asking what more she could do to support our team and our work. Our staff and board will forever be grateful for her commitment to equality and justice. Her passion for life, infectious spirit and enthusiasm will be missed.” It continued: “On behalf of ACLU of Mississippi, I would like to express our heartfelt condolences to Crystal’s family during this unthinkable time. We urge the community to join us in sending prayers to the Welch family.” “Crystal was just a true delight. She was just a superwoman. She was a fun, loving intellectual. Very passionate about her work,” her friend, Colendula Green, told AZFamily. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Authorities have not identified a motive for the fatal shootings. “He may have been upset about a funeral and his birthday, which was on Friday,” Chief Myers said, per AZFamily.
