Sarah Huckabee Sanders is out as White House Press Secretary after 3-plus years with Donald Trump. She is resigning and wants to spend more time with her three kids, possibly back in Arkansas. Rumors are floating that she may make a run for the governorship at some point, following in her father’s footsteps.
Trump’s deal with Mexico put a halt to the 5% tariffs that were to kick in today. What does that mean for the immigration crisis though? Trump is being vague only tweeting that a “Very important” provision we have wanted from Mexico has been agreed to. Let’s hope it makes a dent in the crisis […]
Trump will place a 5% tariff on Mexican imports on June 10th if they don’t stop asylum seeker from reaching our southern border. No one is happy about the decision, Republicans included, but Trump is sticking to his guns, banking that Mexico will fold. The tariffs will increase monthly if no action has been taken.
Trump has handed us his outline for comprehensive immigration reform, heavy on skill-based immigration, light on family ties. No mention of Dreamers (DACA) which likely means it will never see the light of day as legislation in the Dem House. Oh well… nothing new here!
Lindsay Graham will introduce a bill stopping all legal asylum claims at the border for anyone coming from Central America. The bill would require those seeking political asylum to apply at the consulate in their country of origin, stopping caravans! Makes senses! At least someone is thinking about a REAL CRISIS in D.C.
