    U.S. and Mexican officials have agreed on a plan to handle the approaching migrant caravan making their way up from Central America, a senior administration official told Fox News on Thursday. Under the deal, which was developed over the course of several months, Mexico requested that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) establish shelters along its southern border with Central America, the official said. Mexican Ambassador to the U.S. Geronimo Gutierrez elaborated on the request, during an interview on Fox News’ “Special Report.”

    Last week, a federal judge in California dismissed a lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union had filed in 2016 challenging the government’s award of grants to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to provide services to unaccompanied minor illegal aliens and trafficking victims. In the lawsuit, the ACLU argued the grants violated the Establishment Clause because the Department of Health and Human Services allowed the Catholic organization (and its sub-grantees) to deny girls and women in their care contraceptives and abortion. The court rejected the ACLU’s Establishment Clause claim in a methodical 34-page opinion, explaining that the federal funds...

    Even by White House standards, this scrap was reportedly a doozy. Writes Kaitlan Collins and Jeff Zeleny: "A heated argument in the West Wing between chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton over a recent surge in border crossings turned into a shouting match Thursday, two sources familiar with the argument told CNN." According to Collins and Zeleny, the fight -- which Trump witnessed the start of (and sided with the more hard-line Bolton) -- led some aides to speculate that one of the two combatants might leave the White House following it. (The betting money...

    The Mexican government said Thursday it would seek help from the United Nations refugee agency in coordinating efforts with other Central American governments to manage immigrants arriving to Mexico’s southern border seeking refugee status. The measure “seeks to guarantee the security and integrity of migrants, particularly minors, the elderly and women, and to avoid people being deceived by international criminal organizations dedicated to human trafficking, who put their lives in danger,” the Mexico's Foreign Ministry said in a statement. “Finally, the government of Mexico reiterates its commitments with the international community's efforts in favor of safe, orderly and regular migration;...

    Donald Trump threatened on Thursday to seal America's southern border with military force unless Mexico intervenes to stop the flow of illegal immigrants traveling to the U.S. from Central America. The stern, tweeted warning came as a group of more than 4,000 travels north through Mexico in the hope of reaching the United States, despite having no visas or other legal papers to enter. Trump blamed his Democratic rivals for the resulting chaos, saying 'they want Open Borders and existing weak laws.' He resurrected the claim that launched his White House campaign in 2015, saying that 'this large flow of...

    Something tells me that outgoing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, having inked a new trade deal with the United States recently, is looking to score some points with President Trump. As John discussed yesterday, Trump was threatening to cut off all aid to Guatemala and El Salvador if they allow a massive caravan of migrants to pass through their countries unimpeded on their way to the United States. That may no longer be an issue as of this morning. Mexico has sent two planeloads of federal agents to their southern border with instructions to stop the caravan in its...

    The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) 2018 World Competitiveness Report ranks the United States No. 1 in global competitiveness, up from No. 3 in the past few years and its first top ranking in a decade. A high ranking matters. As the WEF reports: “Global competitiveness is determined by the set of institutions, policies and factors that determine the level of productivity of a country … And productivity leads to growth ... and improved well-being. The U.S.’s top ranking therefore suggests a lot of growth and prosperity to come." According to the Davos elite (who are no fans of Donald Trump),...

    The Mexican government has sent 500 extra federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, say documents obtained by NBC News U.S. Customs and Border Protection is tracking the caravan as the Hondurans make their way north toward the U.S. border. Meanwhile, the State Department is trying to stave off that possibility by compelling the Mexican government to stop them at its border with Guatemala. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Mexico to meet with his counterparts on Friday, and plans to stop the caravan will be a "prominent" topic of discussion, a senior...

    President Donald Trump plans to withdraw from a postal treaty that has allowed Chinese companies to ship small packages to the U.S. at a steeply discounted rate...~SNIP~ Under the Universal Postal Union treaty, China and other developing countries have since 1969 been assessed lower rates than wealthier nations. The Times says the decision to withdraw was made at the urging of Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro. The National Association of Manufacturers said Trump deserved credit for his focus on eliminating what it called "the anti-U.S. manufacturer subsidy China receives from the U.S. Postal Service."
  • Trump says each Cabinet secretary should slash 5% of their budgets after he pledges to cut spending

    "We're going to be asking for a 5 percent cut from every secretary today," Trump told reporters at the White House in advance of a meeting with those secretaries. The proposal comes days after the Trump administration announced a $779 billion budget deficit for fiscal year 2018 — a six-year high and a 17 percent jump from the prior period. "He's asking them to cut the fraud, the waste, the abuse," White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway said on Fox Business News. "Cut the fat, not the essentials." Trump had said in an earlier interview on the network that "We're...

    CE car sales are down and EV sales are up. Most people know this much. Also, EV sales are not up by as much as ICE car sales are down. The two metrics are believed to be independent of one another. I believe they are related. When someone purchases a Tesla Model 3, that car sale is an EV and not a new ICE vehicle. So that is a first sale the ICE industry loses. Next, the new EV owner often trades in a used ICE car and someone else will purchase that car. Some number of car buyers will...

    The Mexican government on Wednesday warned Central American migrants moving north in a caravan to avoid detention and deportation back to their home countries, a move that follows President Trump warning he could cut off aid if the caravan is not stopped. In a joint statement, the secretaries of foreign affairs and the interior stopped short of shutting the country's southern border to the Hondurans, while making clear Mexico will enforce its immigration laws. "In compliance with current national legislation, any person who enters the country in an irregular manner, will be rescued and subject to an administrative procedure and,...

    Democrats running for re-election in the 2018 midterms are being advised to not speak about the issue of immigration as consultants admit the zero-enforcement, open borders positions of the Democrat Party are unpopular with swing voters. In a memo obtained by the New York Times, left-wing consultants with the Center for American Progress and the think tank, Third Way, advised Democrats running for election to spend “as little time as possible” talking about the immigration issue facing the nation, where more than 1.5 million immigrants are admitted to the country every year. The New York Times reported: “Sanctuary attacks pack...

    Left-leaning groups are advising Democratic candidates in the November midterm elections to steer clear from discussing immigration in states and districts that President Trump won in 2016. A strategy memo co-authored by the Center for American Progress and Third Way -- two Washington-based think tanks -- recommended that certain Democrats speak about the topic as little as possible and instead focus on topics that will better resonate with their voters. Navin Nayak, executive director of the Center for American Progress Action, said that even though the memo was sent to a broad set of districts, it excluded ones with large...
