A woman and a child are detained by U.S. Border Patrol agents between two border structures on the U.S. side of the southern border Tijuana, Mexico, on Nov. 15, 2018. Migrants traveling through Mexico as part of highly publicized — and highly politicized — caravans finally began to arrive in Tijuana by the hundreds last week, reaching what many hope will be the last stop on a long and arduous pilgrimage that began in Honduras more than a month ago. “Where I want to go is the United States of America,” Cesar, 23-year-old asylum seeker from Honduras, told Yahoo News over the phone from a shelter in Tijuana earlier in the week.

The publisher of the Washington Post blasted President Trump’s response to the Saudi-state-sponsored assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Tuesday. “President Trump’s response to the brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is a betrayal of long-established American values of respect for human rights and the expectation of trust and honesty in our strategic relationships,” publisher Fred Ryan said in a statement released Tuesday. Ryan’s reaction came just hours after Trump released a statement indicating he would not pursue further punitive measures against Saudi Arabia beyond the sanctions imposed earlier this month against 17 individuals believed to have been involved in Khashoggi’s assassination at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
