Frustration grows as migrant caravan stuck in Mexico shelter

No wall on White House talking points on State of the Union | McClatchy Washington Bureau

Nielsen called the caravan "lawless" and said it highlights the need for "comprehensive border security". Since the spending was the main argument between parties during the shutdown, the Republicans and the Democrats must now work together in a bipartisan conference committee comprised of 17 lawmakers from both the Senate and House of Representatives to negotiate an end result that both the Republicans and Democrats will be happy with, which will prevent the government from shutting down for a second time.

On Wednesday, the campaign manager for President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign, Brad Parscale, announced that the location for Trump's first rally of 2019 will be held within 1,000 feet of the U.S. -Mexico border in El Paso, Texas.

Trump had previously said he doesn't expect the talks to produce much and he's threatened to declare a national emergency to bypass Congress and build a U.S. -Mexico border wall.

Asylum seekers have traditionally been granted the right to stay in the United States while their cases were decided by a US immigration judge, but a backlog of more than 800,000 cases means the process can take years.

USA envoy back from North Korea after talks on Trump-Kim summit
Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun met with Kim Hyok Chol, the North's Special Representative for U.S. But progress has since stalled, with the two sides disagreeing over what that means.


Still, Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., a close ally of Trump, said Thursday that the deal could be a good starting place - suggesting Trump could take additional action if needed to secure more wall funding without congressional approval. He held up the border city El Paso as a stunning success of crime reduction that would follow the construction of a wall, but a closer look at crime trends and El Paso law enforcement offer a different story.

- President Trump on Wednesday said he wants to increase the number of people who legally migrate to the U.S.

When Trump discussed El Paso's past, he sounded like he was describing Ciudad Juarez across the border in Northern Mexico.

To reopen the government, Trump signed a short-term spending bill, but it did not include the $5.7 million requested to fund his proposed border wall. "I would think he wouldn't, but I don't know what the situation" will be.

Albert Finney dead: Celebrated actor dies aged 82
He also admitted that, along with luck, there was another attribute he possesssed. "I just want to do what I want to do". When Albert Finney arrived at Rada he thought the idea of him ever becoming an actor was preposterous.


We mention Baltimore's crime in relation to Mr. Trump's claims about El Paso not because there's some perverse competition for which city is more unsafe but because it is the misplaced focus of the president that is itself risky. But violent crime fell long before the wall was built in El Paso, with violent crime falling 34% between 1993 and 2006 in the city.

Miguel Riquelme, the Governor of Coahuila, a Mexican state near the USA border, told local newspapers that he will not allow more migrants to travel through the area.

"He will be joining our protest outside of Trump's rally at the El Paso County Coliseum", the page's organizer, Laura Valdez, wrote. These migrants are camped near Eagle Pass, Texas at an unused maquiladora in the Mexican city of Piedra Negras.
