    Officials are investigating whether Florida’s Gov. Ron DeSantis was behind a flight that picked up asylum-seekers on the Texas border and flew them — apparently without their knowledge — to California’s capital, even as faith-based groups scrambled to find housing and food for them. California Attorney General Rob Bonta says about 20 adults, mainly from Venezuela, were flown by private jet to Sacramento on Monday. Sixteen other migrants arrived Friday. They are the latest apparent instances of a Republican-led state transporting migrants to one controlled by Democrats. DeSantis and other Florida officials haven't confirmed their involvement but last year they flew 49 Venezuelan migrants to Massachusetts from a Texas shelter.

    California officials say the state of Florida has twice picked up asylum-seekers on the Texas border and flown them by private jet to California's capital. The latest flight arrived Monday with about 20 migrants. It follows the arrival Friday of 16 others from Colombia and Venezuela. They are the latest apparent instances of a Republican-led state transporting migrants to one controlled by Democrats. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other Florida officials have not confirmed their involvement in the transport of the migrants. California officials are investigating the migrants' arrival while local officials and faith-based groups seek to provide them food and shelter.

    Journalists at two dozen local newspapers across the U.S. walked off the job Monday to demand an end to painful cost-cutting measures and a change of leadership at Gannett, the country’s biggest newspaper chain. The mostly one-day strike coincided with Gannett’s annual shareholder meeting, during which the company’s board was duly elected despite the NewsGuild-CWA union urging shareholders to withhold their votes from CEO and board chairman Mike Reed as an expression of no confidence in his leadership. The strike includes journalists from Arizona Republic, the Austin American-Statesman, the Bergen Record, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, and the Palm Beach Post. Gannett has said there would be no disruption to its news coverage during the strike.
