The Economic Impact Of The Border Crisis | Fox Business

There are currently an estimated 10 to 12 million undocumented workers in the U.S., according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and the flood of unaccompanied minors is costing taxpayers $252 per day, per child, according to U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo). The average unaccompanied minor spends 35 days in the U.S., which breaks down to $8,820 on average per child. Most of these minors are older than 14, and nearly 75% are boys. The surge of unaccompanied minors has ticked up dramatically over the past several years, with 15,949 entering in 2011, 24,402 coming through in 2012 and 38,759 coming in last year. From January through June 30, 57,525 solo minors entered the country illegally.

Update 2-devon Sells Gas Assets To Focus On Oil Production | Reuters

Devon itself has raised more than $5 billion from the sale of non-core assets over the past few quarters. It sold off some natural gas assets in Canada late last year and bought oil-producing assets in the Eagle Ford shale region of south Texas. The company said on Monday it expects to have reduced its net debt by more than $4 billion this year after the completion of the deal, likely by the end of the third quarter. "With this sale, we now see a new Devon emerging with fourth quarter as the first clean quarter for the clean, go forward portfolio that is expected to deliver on peer leading growth," Global Hunter Securities analysts wrote in a note. Oil and natural gas liquids are expected to account for about 60 percent of Devon's output by year-end, Chief Executive John Richels said, adding that the company was targeting multi-year oil production growth of more than 20 percent. Linn said it would fund the deal by selling its Granite Wash assets spread over Texas Panhandle and western Oklahoma as well as other non-producing acreage. It has also secured a $2.3 billion loan. Devon's shares were little changed at $79.49 in afternoon trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

Fracking Etfs Or Drilling Services Stocks? (frak,oih,iez,xes)

So there really isn't any such thing as a "fracking" company, except some small operators that perform that service specifically for larger outfits. That tends to fall under oil services. (For more, see: Unconventional Drilling Still Has Room To Boom .) Focus On Well Services With that in mind, it's worth comparing FRAK to other ETFs in the oil services field. Market Vectors happens to have just that: Market Vectors Oil Services ETF ( OIH ). Returns on these ETFs are all between 14% (XES) and 22% (IEZ), which is a few points better than FRAK's.

Rockdale Nips Heritage For Second Straight Season | Rockdale Citizen

Instead of a kick, Stone took the direct snap and ran 21 yards down the sideline to set up a first down at the Rockdale 30. The first big fourth quarter pass interference penalty called on Rockdale helped keep the drive alive, and two plays later, Kenan Johnson got into the end zone from 15 yards out to make it a 22-18 game. Heritage was set to attempt the extra point hoping to cut the deficit to three points, but on the snap Rockdale was hit with an offsides penalty. The Patriots changed their minds and went for two points and Stone scored easily to slice the deficit to 22-20. Heritage didnt design a quarterback draw on the games first possession, but after fielding a low snap on third-and-13, signal caller Anthony Stanley scooted 44 yards to the Rockdale 28. The Bulldogs seemed to have snuffed out the drive after Mike Murray made a nice tackle to turn a running play into negative yardage, an incompletion and Murrays sack of Stanley to bring up fourth-and-22. Rather than attempt a long field goal, Turner went from the shotgun and found Johnson for a 24-yard touchdown to put the hosts up 6-0 at the 7:46 mark of the opening quarter. Dawkins got plenty of touches on Rockdales first offensive possession, carrying five times for 27 yards and adding a nine-yard catch on a screen pass to get the Bulldogs to the Heritage six. Dawkins was stymied by Daniel Foster on third-and-short as the Heritage linebacker came up with a big tackle that set up a field goal situation.
