Washington wants to restrict illegal immigration across the Mexican border by tightening regulations. The White House and the US Department of Homeland Security say the new code will not ban the detention of children of immigrants over the 6-day ceiling.
United States Immigration agents arrested 680 mostly Latino immigrants not in the country legally, on Wednesday in raids at seven food processing plants in the southeastern part of the country, as part of President Donald Trump’s measures against illegal migration. The raids in six Mississippi cities occurred on the same day Trump visited El Paso, Texas, where a gunman killed 22 people on Saturday after posting a racist ‘manifesto’ online in which he talked about fighting the ‘invasion’ of Hispanics in the country.
The United States Supreme Court has okayed President Donald Trump’s usage of $ 2.5 billion (£ 2 billion) of Pentagon funds for a section of the wall on the southern border with Mexico. The court ruled by five votes against four to block a ruling by a federal judge in California that prohibited the president from spending money on the wall. The wall, which would divide the United States and Mexico, was Trump’s main campaign promise during the 2016 elections.
Is President Donald Trump’s new policy with Mexico working? Or is the seasonal drop in migration due to the weather?
First, if you take the May to June average for the last five years of Southern Border illegal migration and end prior to this year or 2018, the average seasonal drop is 9%. Without a doubt, there seems to be something real going on because it just dropped around 300% more than the average season decline.
“Are you an American citizen?” Although this question seems simple, it is surrounded by controversy. The most recent of which comes from a Supreme Court case involving adding an additional question to the Census. This question would ask American residents if they are citizens. Despite the conservative lean of the court, they delayed the president’s action, perhaps long enough to keep it off the 2020 Census. The court claimed that the White House’s explanation for adding the question was insufficient. They felt that President’s reason was “more of a distraction” than an explanation.
