    Two U.S. Army soldiers are facing charges for selling weapons headed to Mexico, BuzzFeed reported Thursday. According to a filing in Texas federal court, Tyler Sumlin and Jason Jarvis are reportedly charged with eight counts including conspiracy to smuggle goods from the US, transferring firearms to an out-of-state resident and transporting explosive materials without a license. The indictment was filed in December but not reported on until Thursday. Newsweek reported that the Army was attempting to keep the case quiet, when another solider found the charge sheet and indictments in the Public Access to Court Electronic Records database.

    President Trump on Monday said he would build his long-desired wall along the southern border regardless of whether Congress approves funding for it. "Just so you know, we're building the wall anyway," Trump said at a campaign rally in El Paso, Texas, which sits directly across the Rio Grande from Mexico. Trump spoke shortly after lawmakers said they had reached a funding deal in principle to avoid another government shutdown set to begin on Saturday. The deal includes some money for barriers along the border. The president said he would not sign an agreement that cuts the number of detention...

    President Trump on Monday took aim at El Paso mayor Dee Margo (R), saying at a campaign rally in the city that "people were full of crap" if they said a border fence hasn't made a difference in reducing crime in the area. "There’s no place better to talk about border security whether they like it or not," Trump said while speaking at the El Paso County Coliseum. "I’ve been hearing a lot of things. ‘Oh the wall didn’t make that much of a difference.’" "You know where it made a big difference, right here in El Paso," Trump continued....

    EL PASO, Texas People walking over the Paso del Norte Bridge linking this West Texas border city to Mexico can watch President Donald Trump’s border wall getting bigger in real time. Workers in fluorescent smocks can be seen digging trenches, pouring concrete and erecting rust-colored slabs of 18-foot-high metal to replace layers of barbed wire-topped fencing along the mud-colored Rio Grande, which is usually little more than a trickle. Most of the more than 70,000 people who legally cross four city bridges daily — to shop, go to school and work — pay the construction in the heart of downtown...

    President Donald Trump deflected any blame from his administration for the deaths of two Guatemalan children this month in U.S. government custody as his Homeland Security chief visited Border Patrol medical officials amid promises of more thorough health screenings for migrant children. Instead, the president, whose administration has faced widespread criticism over the deaths, pointed the finger on Twitter at Democrats “and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally.” They were his first comments on the deaths. The president’s comments came Saturday afternoon, the same day Homeland Security...
