A day with the men about to make it across the US border - at any cost

Today 19:05 GMT

The border hardens still: just east of downtown Juárez, late winter sun skates across a concrete slope down to the slow trickle of the Rio Grande (Rio Bravo on this side), and up the other bank, which is the USA, where Mexican-American workers operate a Volvo digger and trucks to build a brand new stretch of high steel fence.

All three at our table want to work in construction in the US, but while the Guatemalans left recently, Jonathan’s nightmare is in his adolescent past: he’s now 19, become an artful dodger and survivor of the road, trying to cross the border into America.

'Blue Monday': Is it really the most depressing day?

Today 19:05 GMT

With a nip in the air, two-thirds of winter still to go and no more super blood wolf moons to look forward to in the near future, is it any wonder that today has been dubbed the most depressing day of the year?

While there is no clear evidence that the third Monday in January is inherently more depressing than any other day, seasonal affective disorder is a widely recognized condition which affects people more often during the winter months.

As the partial government shutdown approaches the one-month mark, it's unclear what position the Democrats are actually taking in the ongoing battle over the U.S.-Mexico border, Washington Times opinion editor Charles Hurt argued Thursday.

"And when you have 80 percent of Democrats telling Nancy Pelosi, ‘Don’t give him any money for the wall,’ and you have 79 percent of Republicans telling Trump, ‘We need that wall or else,’ how are you going to reach a solution?"

FACT CHECK: Findings dispute Trump’s claim border wall will prevent drug smuggling

Sunday 23:39 GMT

U.S. President Donald Trump made an untenable case Saturday that a Mexican border wall would be a magic bullet for America’s drug problem.

Democrats say Trump’s proposal to end government shutdown is a ‘non-starter’. Drugs from Mexico are primarily smuggled into the U.S. at official border crossings, not remote lands that can be walled off. His proposal to end the government shutdown implicitly recognizes that reality by proposing money to improve drug-detection technology specifically at land ports of entry.
