    RUSH: Remember all these times in the past months when people would ask me to react to the latest generic ballot poll on the House races or the Senate races; I would always demur and say, “They don’t mean anything right now. The events that are gonna shape the election haven’t happened yet.” Then the Kavanaugh thing happened, and now there’s this massive caravan heading to the country with the aid of Mexico and Guatemala. Nobody is trying to stop this. Nobody is trying to stop it. It’s up to 4,000 people now. It’s estimated that this is costing somebody...

    White House chief of staff John Kelly and White House national security adviser John Bolton hurled expletives at one another during a loud argument outside the Oval Office on Thursday. The exchange between the two was so heated, White House aides were concerned that either Kelly or Bolton would depart their posts immediately, Bloomberg reports. Sources said the dispute began over a disagreement on how to handle the surge in border crossings, and Bolton was critical of how Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was handling her job. President Trump, who earlier in the day threatened to “close our southern border”...

    The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border. Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News. Just how did the migrant caravan get so big in just a matter of two days? Footage surfaced Wednesday of Honduran women with children being given cash to join the caravan. Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) sounded the alarm Wednesday and called for an investigation into the source when he tweeted...

    Call comes after Trump threatens to stop U.S. aid The Honduran government called on 2,000 immigrants Tuesday to give up their trek north and return home, just hours after President Trump threatened to withhold $65 million in U.S. money if the country’s leaders don’t find a way to head off the caravan. Honduras’s foreign ministry, in a statement reported by local news, said the caravan was being politically manipulated in order to make the country look bad, just days after leaders were in Washington promising better cooperation with the Trump administration. But no matter what happens with this caravan, security...

    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,...

    Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) criticized President Trump’s threats on Wednesday to cut off aid to Honduras over an immigrant caravan. Espaillat said that taking such an action “is not going to work” because it signifies a much larger, global issue. President Trump warned if Honduras' government didn’t stop a caravan of migrants headed to the U.S., the Trump administration would withhold funding to the country, “effective immediately.” “That’s not going to work,” Espaillat told Hill.TV co-hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton. “Guatemalans migrate to Mexico, Mexicans migrate to the United States, Africans migrate to Spain and Italy, Libyans migrate to...

    Italy’s closing of its ports to rescued migrants is driving up deaths at sea, an Italian think tank said on Monday, using calculations based on numbers collected by U.N. agencies. Since taking power in June, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who heads the far-right League party, has refused to allow charity rescue ships to dock in Italy, a policy that has broad popular support after the arrival of almost 650,000 people from North Africa since 2014.

    Debate in Europe framing illegal immigration from the third world as a problem is “dangerous”, the United Nations (UN) refugee chief has warned, insisting that the mass movement of peoples has been “a source of progress and prosperity since people first began to migrate”. “Distorted” political debate on the subject has led to Europe becoming “obsessed” with a migrant crisis that “does not exist”, Filippo Grandi said, urging EU politicians to stop squabbling “over a few boats” [of illegal immigrants]. In an interview published in the German press Thursday, he dismissed plans backed by Austria and Italy among other member...
