More Fatal Car Crashes From Drugs Than Alcohol:   While this should not come as a surprise to anyone paying attention, more U.S. drivers in fatal car crashes tested positive for drugs than alcohol in 2015.  Ashley Halsey III, of the Washington Post reports that data released by the Governors Highway Safety Association found that 43% of drivers in fatal accidents had been under the influence of legal or illegal drugs, while 37% were drunk.  The story also notes that the number of drivers who died in car crashes who tested positive for drugs went from 28% in 2005 to 43% in 2015.  In Colorado the number of marijuana-related traffic deaths increased by 48% after the state legalized recreational use of the drug.  No worries, the state is reportedly getting lots of tax revenue from pot sales. 

DHS to Help Victims of Alien Criminals:  The Office of Homeland Security has announced that it will begin offering services to American crime victims who were assaulted by illegal aliens.  Brooke Singman of Fox News reports that the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office was opened in response to a Presidential directive.  "All crime is terrible, but these victims are unique--and often too ignored," said Homeland Security John Kelly.  "They are casualties of crimes that should never have taken place--because the people who victimized them often times should not have been in the country in the first place," he added.
