The US-Mexico border is a 1,954-mile-long boundary between the United States and Mexico. It is a major point of entry for both legal and illegal immigration. The border has been a source of political controversy for decades, with debates over immigration policy, border security, and the treatment of migrants.

NYPD
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is the largest municipal police force in the United States. It is responsible for law enforcement in the five boroughs of New York City. The NYPD has been the subject of much scrutiny and debate in recent years, with concerns over police brutality, racial profiling, and the use of force.

Heatwave
A heatwave is a period of abnormally hot weather, typically lasting several days or weeks. Heatwaves can be dangerous, especially for vulnerable populations such as the elderly, young children, and people with chronic health conditions. Heatwaves can also lead to wildfires, power outages, and other problems.

Wildfire
A wildfire is an uncontrolled fire that burns in wildland areas, such as forests, grasslands, and brush. Wildfires can be caused by natural events such as lightning strikes, or by human activities such as arson, campfires, and equipment malfunctions. Wildfires can be devastating, causing loss of life, property damage, and environmental destruction.

Shark Attack
A shark attack is an incident in which a shark bites a human. Shark attacks are relatively rare, but they can be serious or even fatal. Most shark attacks occur in coastal waters, especially in areas where there are large populations of sharks and humans. Shark attacks can be prevented by taking precautions such as swimming in areas with lifeguards, avoiding swimming at dawn or dusk, and not swimming in areas where there are known shark populations.

Hamas
Hamas is a Palestinian Islamist political organization and militant group that controls the Gaza Strip. Hamas is considered a terrorist organization by the United States, Israel, and the European Union. Hamas has been involved in numerous attacks against Israeli civilians and military targets.

He has been the subject of much criticism and praise for his handling of the pandemic.

Serial Killer
A serial killer is a person who commits two or more murders, typically with a cooling-off period between each murder. Serial killers are often motivated by a desire for power, control, or sexual gratification. They may target specific types of victims, such as women, children, or people with certain physical characteristics. Serial killers are often very difficult to catch, as they are often intelligent, cunning, and able to blend in with society.

Wheel of Fortune
