Trump to Support DACA Protections for More Wall Funding

President Trump is planning to support protections from deportation for some undocumented immigrants in the U.S. in exchange for $5.7 billion to build the southern border wall. WASHINGTON—President Trump is planning on Saturday to support protections from deportation for some undocumented immigrants in the U.S. in exchange for $5.7 billion to build the southern border wall, said White House officials familiar with the decision. Mr. Trump is scheduled to make his announcement at 4 p.m. Aides cautioned that the announcement has already been delayed once by an hour, and that the president may still change his approach. The offer to codify protections for young immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, known as Dreamers, is seen as a major concession inside the White House. The offer is designed to move negotiations forward with a view to ending the impasse over the partial government shutdown, with both sides dug in over the wall. Mr. Trump says extending existing border barriers is needed to curb illegal immigration and Democrats says it is an ineffective and expensive measure. The new White House position was negotiated by the president’s senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Vice President Mike Pence, aides said.

U.S. top court's Kavanaugh issues first opinion in arbitration case

The U.S. Supreme Court’s newest member, Brett Kavanaugh, issued his first written opinion on Tuesday as the justices in a unanimous ruling bolstered companies’ ability to use arbitration to resolve disputes with customers or other businesses. The court decided 9-0 to throw out a lower-court ruling that had kept a case involving dental equipment companies from being resolved through arbitration because the court had determined the demand for arbitration was groundless. Newly appointed justices are generally assigned non-controversial, unanimous cases as their first opinions.

    To be fair, this has been built up over a number of decades. US reliance on Saudi oil is the root of this problem, and that isn't a Trump thing, that goes back a long way. US presidents have been kissing butts of Saudi royals for decades, and for decades they've had a miserable human rights record to say the least.
