The breaking story…

Judge Blocks Trump’s Asylum Ban for Illegal Immigrants

The first waves of the migrant caravan are arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, including an¬†LGBTQ group¬†who were the first to arrive.¬†A¬†federal judge has¬†banned¬†the¬†¬†Trump administration’s plan to deny asylum to anyone in the caravan who enters the U.S. illegally. As the rest of the group makes its way to the border, many are being met with¬†anti-immigration protests in Tijuana. The country is waiting to see what will become of the thousands of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. and how long it will take, especially since the 5,800 troops sent to the border will be¬†home by Christmas.
