    “The historic work that both of these administrations — led by the two presidents — have done stemming from one, the USMCA, which is something that we are going to obviously highlight … but also our historic cooperation on migration" a official told reporters. “Illegal migration is now down 85% of mostly from Central American countries that would not be possible without the help of President Lopez Obrador with the Migrant Protection plan that we worked together on and the 25,000 National Guardsmen men and women that he has put forward to the northern and southern borders to protect people...

    United States President Donald Trump stated on Friday the president of Honduras told him the country had "incredible" results in treating COVID-19 with hydroxychloroquine. The president claimed he saw both positive and negative studies about the usage of the drug, stating, however, tests should be conducted to determine whether hydroxychloroquine should be used. In addition, Trump denied pressuring anyone to promote the use of the malaria drug, which the country's Food and Drugs Administration warned shouldn't be used for the treatment of COVID-19 outside of a controlled environment.

    While the world is absorbed in the Coronavirus drama, yet another caravan of illegal immigrants is heading north to the United States from Central America. The group departed recently from the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula and is making its way to Guatemala en route to the southern Mexican state of Chiapas. The final destination is the U.S., according to a Mexican news report that reveals the caravan has some 500 Central Americans but is expected to grow along the way. “They left their country due to a lack of work opportunities and prevailing violence,” according to the...

    Of the total visas available, 10,000 will be reserved for people from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador The Trump administration said it is making an additional 35,000 seasonal guest-worker visas available this year ahead of the busy summer season, the largest increase since President Trump took office. The additional visas announced Thursday by the Department of Homeland Security will bring the total available this year to 101,000, though the additional visas will primarily be made available to returning workers. The seasonal-worker visa program, known as H-2B, enables U.S. employers to hire as many as 66,000 foreign workers a year, with...

No business cards, no contractors license,' her husband Philip Hungate told DailyMail.com. 'My wife called me at work in a panic saying there were guys on the roof and they were tearing things off.'

    We haven’t been seeing nearly as many migrant caravan stories in the news this winter as compared to the same time one year ago. And there’s a reason for that. It’s because there haven’t been as many migrant caravans, and the ones that did manage to form up haven’t made it very far past Mexico’s southern border. When asked to comment on this trend yesterday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) predicted that there would almost certainly be more caravans, but he sees them growing smaller and less frequent. (Associated Press) President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Friday that...

    A new caravan formed in Honduras with about 2,500 migrants traveling toward the U.S.- Mexico border. Saturday the Mexican National Guard stepped up and honored the “safe third country” agreement. The migrants were denied entry into Mexico at the Guatemala-Mexico border. Last November the Trump administration entered into a series of regional agreements with countries including Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The goal is to reduce the burden of Central American migrant caravans arriving at the U.S. border. Migrants are being returned to Guatemala, sent back to their home country, or allowed to enter the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP)...

    EXCLUSIVE: Law enforcement apprehended or turned away 42,649 migrants at the southern border in November, according to preliminary data reviewed by Fox News -- a sixth month of declines that the administration is hailing as proof that the set of policies and initiatives to combat the border crisis is working. The numbers (33,510 apprehended and 9,139 deemed inadmissible) represented a decline of roughly six percent since October, and a drop of over 70 percent since the height of the crisis in May, when more than 144,000 migrants were encountered. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data showed that the number...

    Republicans are moving comprehensive immigration reform forward on Capitol Hill because “we understand it’s solid for the economy,” conservative activist Grover Norquist declares in an exclusive Newsmax TV interview. “Immigration is America’s number one economic asset,” Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, tells Newsmax. “The rest of the world can’t do that. We can have every smart person we want; every high-skilled person we want. A lot of young people just starting out unskilled—as all Americans do when they’re born here—come to this country, and so the business community is for immigration. Big businesses, small businesses, high-tech, low-tech, the...

    President Donald Trump spurned the advice of establishment diplomats as he fought to implement his campaign promises, according to a report by Vox. The November 7 article described the elected president’s decision to ignore the self-serving view of agency officials: Senior State Department officials and career diplomats repeatedly warned the Trump administration that taking away legal protections for [400,000 migrants] from El Salvador, Honduras, and Haiti would put national security, foreign relations, and the immigrants’ American-born children at risk, according to internal State Department documents. But Trump did it anyway — and concerns about the 2020 election appear to have...

    Among the multitude of migrants waiting in Mexico to get asylum in the United States are thousands of Africans boldly demanding passage into the country. They are far more coordinated than their Central American caravan counterparts and have formed an official organization to spread their message and advocate on their behalf. The group accuses Mexican authorities of discrimination and racism and is ordering Mexico to grant visas that allow them to continue their trek north to seek “protection” in America. For about three months the Africans have been holed up in Tapachula, in the southeast Mexican state of Chiapas bordering...

    <p>Back in June, many on the left pooh-poohed Trump's deal with Mexico to avoid tariffs in exchange for stronger efforts by Mexico to curb the flow of immigrants through their country into the United States. While the positive impact of that deal became apparent almost immediately, we now have a much clearer picture of the impact of the deal Trump struck with Mexico as border apprehensions have plummeted the past three months.</p>

I’m a son of immigrants. I’m black. I grew up poor. I’ve been stopped because I fit the description.”
