Jeff Sessions considers forcing asylum-seekers with sons and daughters in tow to take DNA TESTS to prove children are theirs
'We know for a fact that many adults taking children along are not related to them. Could be smugglers. They could be human traffickers,' Sessions said Tuesday in a radio interview. The host, a conservative Christian leader, said after the radio interview that Sessions and members of Congress have 'talked about making sure that these really are the parents of these kids. They are looking at how to use DNA tests in the field to verify they are parents and not traffickers.' Sessions said the number of family units crossing the border together has grown from 14,000 in 2013 to 75,000 last year. 'It became well-known that if you came with a child, an adult with a child, you weren't going to be deported or prosecuted. This has created a massive loophole for us,' he explained.
Is the San Andreas fault line at risk of the 'BIG ONE'? New-found 15 mile-long formation in the area could be ground zero for California's next massive earthquake
Researchers from the Geological Society of America used detailed geologic and structural mapping of the southern 20 miles (30km) of the San Andreas fault zone in southern California. They found the Durmid ladder structure (left), a highly faulted area of rock that is 0.6 to 2.5 miles (one to four km) wide, found in the upper 1.8 to 3.1 miles (three to five km) of the ground and named for the Durmid Hill region it is located in. Experts say this could be ground zero for the next major earthquake to hit the fault (aerial view, top right), colloquially known as 'Big One'. Researchers have been warning since early last year that the state is overdue for a highly destructive earthquake (bottom right, destruction after Northridge earthquake hit Los Angeles in 1994)

Mystery of the bizarre 'UFO' formation on Mars is solved: Scientists claim it was created by massive volcanic eruptions 3 billion years ago
