A border wall isn’t enough – Asylum laws must be stricter to cut illegal immigration

Today 06:59 GMT

Because of multiple lawsuits challenging his declaration of a national emergency, we don’t know if President Trump will be able to carry out his plans to use $8 billion in federal funds to build a barrier along parts of the U.S.-Mexico border to reduce illegal immigration.

Even if the courts side with the president – and even if he then uses billions of dollars more to build additional sections of a border barrier – no wall or fence alone will stop immigrants from crossing our southern border in large numbers.

Human spirit climbs to another level in Free Solo

Today 06:59 GMT

While Free Solo is a film that cauterises cynicism, it would be a shoo-in for most gripping footwear commercial as well as best cinematography.

Alex Honnold’s solo and ropeless climb of the 3,000ft vertical wall of El Capitan in Yosemite has been called a great athletic achievement but this is absurd. It’s tempting to argue that Free Solo should win the Oscar for best documentary simply on the strength of its subject.

A prominent Wall Street permabear says the stock market is ‘stoned on free money’ and it could ‘prove fatal’

Friday 18:10 GMT

Albert Edwards, global strategist at Société Générale, cautioned on Thursday that stock markets were becoming “stoned on free money,” leaving them “detached from reality.” It’s a condition that the strategist says could “prove fatal,” in the end.

That is to say, he believes that central bankers’ inability to end easy-money policies that had been put in place to address the 2007-09 financial crisis could lead to more risk-taking on Wall Street that could lead to a fresh crisis.

Wednesday 14:31 GMT

Sharm el-Sheikh locals lament 'wall' going up around resort

Wednesday 15:25 GMT

Egyptian authorities have started work on a concrete barrier around the Sinai resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh, which has struggled to attract tourists since a Russian passenger jet crashed in the region shortly after taking off in 2015 in a terrorism-linked attack, killing 224 people.

The Egyptian authorities have since enhanced security measures at Sharm el-Sheikh airport, hoping for the return of flights from Russia and the UK.
