Border row pitches Mexican president into deep water with Trump

Border row pitches Mexican president into deep water with TrumpAmid a surge in migrant detentions at the southwest U.S. border, Trump on Friday said he would close the 2,000-mile (3,200-km) frontier, or sections of it, during the coming week if Mexico did not halt the flow of people. Casting the government under leftist President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as the villain in his struggle to curb illegal immigration to the United States, Trump returned to a signature theme of his 2015-2016 presidential election bid. On Friday, Lopez Obrador again said he would not quarrel with Trump, invoking “love and peace” and repeating his commitment to curbing migration.

Prayers, holy water as Venezuelan Curacao aid shipment delayedWillemstad, CuraƧao (Netherlands Antilles) (AFP) – Venezuelan opposition supporters rallied in Curacao’s port Saturday, pushing for their own shipment to join in a dangerous aid effort for their country, but the vessel’s captain declined to sail yet for security reasons. While in Venezuela border clashes and military desertions raised tensions, on the sleepy Caribbean island of Curacao a handful of expatriates applied pressure on a separate front, waving flags and singing. Standing near one of the red trucks carrying the containers of aid at the entrance to a cargo port, Venezuelan priest Julio Gonzalez, 33, blessed the cargo and sprinkled holy water on the excited crowd.
