Hundreds of Central American migrants have begun wading across the Suchiate River into southern Mexico in a new test of President Donald Trump’s Central America strategy to keep them away from the U.S. border.
A Russian immigrant who was deported after staging a month-long hunger strike this summer at an Arizona detention center resurfaced in the state a month ago when authorities said he was shot by a Border Patrol agent during a physical struggle near the border.
A new report claims there have been 636 violent attacks on asylum seekers returned to Mexico under a Trump administration policy, with close to half of those incidents coming in just the last two months.
The U.S. government separated thousands of families despite knowing it lacked the technology to document and track their whereabouts, according to a report released Wednesday by an internal government watchdog.
A federal judge ruled Tuesday that a partial ban on asylum does not apply to anyone who appeared at an official U.S. border crossing before the policy was announced in July, a decision that may affect thousands of people.
Sharply at odds with liberal justices, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority seemed ready Tuesday to allow the Trump administration to abolish protections that permit 660,000 immigrants to work in the U.S., free from the threat of deportation.
As Mexican soldiers stood guard, a mother and two sons were laid to rest in hand-hewn pine coffins in a single grave dug out of the rocky soil Thursday at the first funeral for the victims of a drug cartel ambush that left nine American women and children dead.
When drug cartel gunmen opened fire on American women and children in northern Mexico, the Mexican Army, the National Guard and Sonora state police were not there to protect them. It took them about eight hours just to arrive.
Back in February, President Trump declared the situation at the U.S. border with Mexico a national emergency, which allowed him to bypass Congress and use money allotted for military construction to build a wall along the border.
