US warns migrant 'caravan' against trying to enter
"If you enter our country illegally, you have broken the law and will be referred for prosecution," DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said. 
Washington (AFP) – The Department of Homeland Security issued a stark warning Wednesday to the first 120 who arrived, including some 50 minors.

The US has threatened to arrest around 100 Central American migrants if they try to sneak in from the US-Mexico border where they have gathered, prompting President Donald Trump to order troop reinforcements on the frontier.
Two busloads of migrants arrived Tuesday in the border city of Mexicali -- which sits opposite Calexico, California -- and paused for a rest stop before continuing on to Tijuana.
They are part of a caravan of more than 1,000 people who set out from Mexico's southern border on March 25.
Media coverage of the caravan triggered a flurry of furious tweets from Trump, who ordered thousands of National Guard troops to the border and called on Mexico to stop the migrants.
As the issue exploded into a diplomatic row, organizers of the caravan quietly broke it up.

Subway Restaurants is planning to shutter an estimated 500 locations in the U.S.

The Milford, Conn.-based chain wants to focus on better restaurant locations and boosting sales, according to Bloomberg. High on its priorities list is overseas expansion.

The news comes a year after Subway shut down 800-plus locations. 2016 also saw store closings, Bloomberg reported.

The chain currently has close to 26,000 locations in the U.S. Subway also expects to open 1,000-plus restaurants around the globe, including in Mexico, the U.K., Germany, South Korea, India and China, CEO Suzanne Greco told Bloomberg. With an estimated 44,000 locations in 112 countries,

Subway is the largest restaurant chain in the world, according to the company website. Subway is known for its sandwiches, but is facing increasing competition. In addition to convenience stores and drug stores starting to stock sandwiches, numerous other chain restaurants serve similar fare — from Panera to McDonald's Signature Crafted Sandwiches to Starbucks, which is making a big play for lunchtime business.

CONGRATULATIONS! Debbie Lesko Wins Arizona Special Election

VICTORY: Both AP and The New York Times have called the Arizona Special Election. Former State Sen. Debbie Lesko is now U.S. Representative-elect. She replaces Trent Franks (R) who resigned.
Former Republican state Sen. Debbie Lesko won the special election in Arizona’s 8th District on Tuesday night. 
She defeated Hiral Tiprineni, a former emergency room physician, who raised $740,000 through the first quarter, surpassing Lesko’s haul of $564,000. 
The Democratic National Committee invested $175,000 and the liberal Working Families Party also spent $100,000 to help Tipirneni.
Throughout the campaign, the former state legislator stressed her support for Trump’s immigration policies, including building a wall on the Southern border. 
She also touted her support for the GOP tax overhaul. Lesko was first elected to the Arizona state House in 2008, later moving to the state Senate in 2014. 
She served as the Senate president pro tempore until she resigned from the chamber in January to focus on her congressional bid.
She becomes the only second Republican woman elected to Congress from Arizona.

President Trump Instructs Homeland Security Not To Allow "Caravan" To Enter America

  1. Mexico, whose laws on immigration are very tough, must stop people from going through Mexico and into the U.S. We may make this a condition of the new NAFTA Agreement. Our Country cannot accept what is happening! Also, we must get Wall funding fast.
  2. Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country. It is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naive! WALL
  3. Source: Many of the migrants in the caravan vowed to defy the President and enter the country illegally regardless of the threat.
    One Salvadoran national, according to the Daily Mail, referred to Trump as being ‘crazy’ and ‘racist.’
    “I’ll be reunited with my family,” he said, having been deported previously. “See you soon Mr. President.”
  4. It might not be the President you’re seeing soon … it might be the military or prosecutors from the DOJ and ICE.
    “DHS continues to monitor the remnants of the ‘caravan’ of individuals headed to our Southern border with the apparent intention of entering the United States illegally,” Nielsen said.
    “If you enter the United States illegally, let me be clear: you have broken the law. And we will enforce the law through prosecution of illegal border crossers.”

AG Sessions Statement On "Caravan" Attempting To Enter America

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Statement on Central American 'Caravan'
Attorney General Jeff Sessions today issued the following statement on the Central American 'Caravan':

“Pockets of the original, so-called ‘migrant caravan,’ which press reports indicate consists mostly of Honduran nationals, have begun to arrive at our southern border with the intent of claiming asylum. These individuals—and their smugglers—ignored the willingness of the Mexican government to allow them to stay in Mexico.

“Let today’s message be clear: our nation has the most generous immigration system in the world, but this is a deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system. There is no right to demand entry without justification. Smugglers and traffickers and those who lie or commit fraud will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

“Promoting and enforcing the rule of law is essential to protecting a nation, its borders, and its citizens. But, as President Trump has warned, the need to fix these loopholes and weaknesses in our immigration system is critical and overdue.

“Accordingly, I have directed our U.S. Attorneys at the border to take whatever immediate action to ensure that we have sufficient prosecutors available. I have also directed that we commit any additional necessary immigration judges to adjudicate any cases that may arise from this ‘caravan.’”
