The Trump administration has detained 2,322 children 12 years old or younger amid its border crackdown, a Department of Health and Human Services official told Kaiser Health News on Wednesday.

Melania Trump wears 'I don't care' jacket on plane to visit child detention center

Today 14:38 GMT

When Melania Trump met with detained children at the Texas border on Thursday, she struck a compassionate tone, asking staff at the facility: “How I can help ... these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible?”

As she boarded a plane to Texas, she appeared to be wearing a Zara jacket with the astonishing caption: “I really don’t care. Do U?”. Photos taken as she boarded the plane at Andrews airbase didn’t capture the jacket’s full text, but it seems to be the same as the one that costs $39 and is available from the Zara website.

The liberal lurch left on immigration

Today 14:38 GMT

Trump's frequent use of dehumanizing words and phrases when discussing immigration, plus his overall racial baggage, reinforces the growing liberal conviction that resisting immigration enforcement is the civil rights struggle of our time.

As The Atlantic's Peter Beinart observed last year, a decade ago even liberals who supported an expansive immigration policy, including legal status for the bulk of the undocumented population, freely acknowledged the costs imposed by large-scale low-wage immigration, the challenges of assimilation in an era of reduced upward mobility, and the cultural tensions that can result.

Images of the Border Crises Speak Louder Than ‘Womp Womp’

Today 14:37 GMT

That was the sound that the former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski made Tuesday night during a Fox News segment on the Trump administration policy of separating immigrant parents from their children at the border.

Ann Coulter argued that the children detained at the border were “child actors,” and we shouldn’t fall for their heartstring-pulling wiles. She pointedly aimed this at President Trump, saying, “I get very nervous about the president getting his news from TV.”

Supreme Court rules states can require online retailers to collect sales tax

Today 11:49 GMT

Online shopping will soon become more expensive, after the U.S. Supreme court ruled Thursday that states can require Internet retailers to collect sales taxes.

The 5-4 decision broke with 50 years' worth of legal rulings that barred the states from imposing sales taxes on most of the purchases their residents make from out-of-state retailers. The decision was a victory for South Dakota, which asked the court to uphold its recently passed law imposing an Internet sales tax.
