JD Vance (R-Ohio) as his running mate and the recent assassination attempt against Trump will boost Latino support for the GOP. “I wonder, Congresswoman De La Cruz, in your opinion, if you think that JD Vance is going to help with Latino voters in your district?” Noticias Telemundo anchor Julio Vaqueiro asked at a reception at the Republican National Convention hosted by Axios and Noticias Telemundo. “I think that Senator Vance is an excellent choice, and I do believe th ..read more

Arrests at the U.S.-Mexico border fell by nearly 30 percent in June to the lowest level during President Biden’s administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Monday, as the president’s asylum restrictions took effect. About 83,000 people were arrested at the border in June, CBP said, down from about 118,000 in May and the lowest level since January 2021. The shift comes after Biden announced early last month that asylum processing would halt after 2,500 people were processed per day.  “Recent border security measures have made a meaningful impact on our ability to im ..read more

The Biden-Harris campaign is working to pull TV ads slated to air during the Copa América final, a campaign spokesperson told The Hill on Sunday. The campaign suspended its campaign messaging following the assassination attempt against former President Trump on Saturday. It’s unclear whether all ads will be taken down before the tournament’s final airs at 8 p.m. EDT because they are generally reserved on individual affiliate stations. Biden’s campaign made a seven-figure investment in advertising around the tournament, and Trump last Tuesday launched a new Spanish-language ..read more

A meeting between Hispanic House Democrats and President Biden ended somewhat awkwardly Friday, as one member used his question to ask the president point blank to drop out of the race. Bold PAC, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) campaign arm, organized the call with time for two questions, but Biden spontaneously took a third. Rep. Mike Levin (D-Calif.) used the opportunity to ask Biden to step down from the presidential race against former President Trump. According to multiple sources, Levin’s request was calm and preambled with praise for Biden and his agenda but based ..read more

For the first time since 2005, a majority of Americans believe immigration levels should be decreased, according to a Gallup poll conducted in June.

That’s a sharp drop from a peak of 34 percent who wanted to increase in May 2020 and 33 percent in June that year, the only two months on record when more respondents wanted immigration levels increased than decreased.

The first original GOP party platform since 2016 establishes closing the U.S.-Mexico border to migrants and conducting mass deportations as Republicans' top two priorities. The document, released Monday, mirrors former President Trump’s rhetoric and style, from the nature of its proposals to its grammatical quirks. Following a preamble that stylistically mimics Trump’s social media persona, the platform lists 20 broad-strokes policy proposals, beginning with two immigration-related points. “SEAL THE BORDER, AND STOP THE MIGRANT INVASION,” reads the platform’s No. 1 policy position, which ..read more

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A federal judge on Friday approved the Biden administration’s request to partially end a nearly three-decade-old agreement to provide court oversight of how the government cares for migrant children in its custody.

They are placed in a vast network of holding facilities and generally released to close relatives. The Justice Department argued that n ..read more
