Ahead of U.S. congressional elections earlier this month, Trump denounced the approach of a caravan of migrants as an "invasion" that threatened American national security, and he sent thousands of U.S. troops to the border to help secure it. Currently, the troops do not have authority to protect U.S. Customs and Border Patrol personnel. U.S. officials briefly closed the busiest border crossing from Mexico early on Monday to add concrete barricades and razor wire amid concerns some of the thousands of Central American migrants at the border could try to rush the crossing.
The Trump administration’s crackdown on refugees crossing into the U.S. from Mexico was suspended late Monday by a federal judge, prompting a response from the Justice Department and the Homeland Security Department, which said they would continue to defend the administration’s authority to deal with the “crisis” at the border.

Daily Digit is the story behind the numbers that make our world work. Today we’re looking at abortions and the right to choose. In 1973, the Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade decriminalized abortion in the U.S. According to a new study by Pew Research Center, nearly 60% of Americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases. Unsurprisingly, the views about this issue vary widely between the political parties. Among the general public, the study shows there’s no significant difference in opinion between men and women. But support varies by race, with whites and blacks more accepting than members of Hispanic groups. And support is higher among individuals with higher education. Do you think abortion should be legal?
