The amount of solar power U.S. homeowners install could shrink 13% this year, as forecast by the trade group Solar Energy Industries Association and consulting firm Wood Mackenzie. More than a hundred solar contractors have already gone out of business during the past year as demand dried up, according to data tracked by Solar Insure, a company that monitors residential solar installations and helps fix problems. The state has installed so many panels that it has a glut of solar power during the day. Last year, California implemented new rules that cut the amount of compensation most rooftop solar owners get for the electricity they send to the grid by 75% or more to manage the oversupply and soaring costs for upgrading the grid.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is monitoring more than 600,000 migrants who have entered the U.S. with criminal records, according to the chairman of the House National Security, Border and Foreign Affairs subcommittee.

Chairman Glenn Grothman, R-Wis., who will oversee a Tuesday hearing titled, "How the Border Crisis Impacts Public Safety," says U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) overall is monitoring more than 6 million illegal immigrants amid the crisis at the southern border under President Joe Biden.

Grothman adds that roughly 617,000 of those migrants either have criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.

Webmaster addition: Gee, I wonder what those 617K immigrants will do when the government runs out of money to take care of them (around November 6th)?

Veteran journalist and TV show host Katie Couric is taking flak for her generalization of Donald Trump voters as an "anti-intellectualism" movement.

Couric made the comments on Bill Maher's "Club Random" podcast.

"The socio-economic disparities are a lot, and class resentment is a lot, and anti-intellectualism and elitism is what is driving many of these anti-establishment [people] — which are Trump voters — so, I think that is a huge problem that we have to address," Couric told Maher.

"I mean, globalization and the transition from an industrial to a technological society — I don't know if you've ever been jealous of someone else or resentful — it is such a corroding and bitter, almost vile feeling," she added. "I think that when people who are really struggling see people who have everything and are on top of that looking down on them, it is just a recipe for such anger and resentment and grievance."

Her comments generated backlash on social media.

Webmaster addition: So Trump fills stadiums with anti-intellectuals. Why can't Biden fill stadiums with intellectuals?
