US House to sue to block Trump border wall funding action

DHS sending 750 more agents to U.S.-Mexico border over 'influx'

President Trump is met with support during his visit to the California border town of Calexico. "I think it looks fantastic - very see-through, so you're able to see the other side, which is a very important element".

Vitiello acknowledged "it was a mistake" and said "he was trying to make a joke", adding that he thought it was a direct message. The president's latest threat is the second to rock the auto industry in less than a week.

The move came as immigration officials are dealing with a massive spike in U.S-Mexico border crossings - and a recent flare-up by President Donald Trump, who threatened to close the border entirely by the end of this week before backing off.

The new barrier, however, has helped already. Longtime border official Ron Vitiello appeared to be cruising toward confirmation, but Trump said Friday that he wanted to go in a "tougher direction".

Twenty states have filed a motion to block Trump's attempt to divert federal funds through an emergency declaration, the NY state attorney general said on Friday.

But those youths and children should be sent home, said Jenks, because the 2008 law only protects trafficked victims, such as forced prostitutes, not youths and children who have parents in the United States or who are willingly smuggled up to the border. "I may shut it down at some point but I would rather do tariffs".

The majority of the migrants are from the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, which means they mostly travel through Mexico to get to the United States.

President Trump ended last week by threatening to close the United State's border with Mexico due to concerns over illegal migrants. He gave the country a deadline to do more to stop drugs or face tariffs.

He further asked, "Are we really going to help pay for these human rights violations?" Clooney wrote in a deadline.com column . Phil Robertson, Asia deputy director for Human Rights Watch , said: "This kind of law doesn't belong in the 21st century".

Though Mr Trump, who has pulled a series of about-faces in recent days, walked away from this threat to close the border, he still intends to highlight conditions at the boundary with Mexico.

"Trump says Mexicans are rapists and criminals".

Trump's administration and the Canadian and Mexican governments previous year concluded talks on a revised version of the North American Free Trade Agreement that would be called the U.S. -Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.

Trump loves to dangle the threat of auto tariffs in global negotiations, and suggested in February that he might impose duties on vehicles made inside the European Union.

Trump also said he could still order the border closed later.

In addition, despite what Trump suggests, Mexico, China and other American trading partners don't pay USA tariffs directly. But there again, that can hit US companies, such as General Motors, which is a major car-maker in Mexico.

Now, with the encouragement of an influential aide and with his re-election campaign on the horizon, Trump is looking at personnel changes as he tries to shift blame elsewhere. Despite a almost $14 million contract with the consulting firm Accenture, Border Patrol hired only two frontline agents in the first 10 months of the contract, a government watchdog report found. The president vetoed House-passed legislation to terminate the emergency declaration, prompting the lawsuit.

But even absent that extraordinary step, delays at border stations have been mounting after some 2,000 border officers were reassigned from checking vehicles to deal with migrant crowds.
