Are terrorists crossing the US-Mexico border? Excerpts from the case file

For the past eight years there has been a running debate between conservatives and liberals over the potential threat of terrorists using the US-Mexico border to enter or attack America.

The Obama administration has largely played down the threat, while conservative critics have issued a steady drumbeat of warnings.

A deep rift opened Thursday between the United States and its southern neighbor as the Trump administration pressed forward with a plan for a giant border wall and insisted that Mexico would pay for it, possibly through a U.S. tax on imports.

Senate Democrats geared up for battle with President Donald Trump by preparing to talk to people who voted for him — and by hearing from one of his arch-nemeses.

Gathering in Sheperdstown, West Virginia, Democrats were scheduled to hear Thursday from liberal political operative David Brock, Center for American Progress CEO Neera Tanden and Priorities USA CEO Guy Cecil in a session called “Hold Trump Accountable.” Earlier in the day, Sen.

Professor Carol Swain will retire from Vanderbilt University in August, according to an announcement she posted on her website and social media accounts Monday.

In a couple of weeks, more than 100 million people will participate in what has long been one of America’s favorite past times: watching the Super Bowl on TV. The Super Bowl has been one of the most-watched TV show for years and 2017 is likely to be no exception. But this national event is starting to show some signs of weakness and this year’s game may actually be the latest episode in what seems to be a downward slide for the NFL.
