President Trump has made immigration his focus ahead of the mid-terms. It's a winner with Republicans, not so much with Independents.

In Pakistan a Christian woman awaiting the death penalty on a blasphemy conviction has successfully appealed her case.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will pay a visit to the Pittsburgh community shattered by a mass-shooting last weekend at a synagogue.

The Pentagon will deploy over 5000 active-duty troops to the US-Mexico border this week, just days before the mid-term election, but still weeks prior to the expected arrival date of a caravan of migrants, traveling mostly on foot.

Eleven worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue died Saturday in an attack by a gunman shouting anti-semitic statements. The final week of campaigning, ahead of mid-term elections will no doubt involve denunciation of the weekend synagogue shooting, as well as last week's mailing of pipe bombs to Trump opponents by a Florida man, but will those events change how voters vote? Brazil has elected far-right politician Jair Bolsonaro to be its next president, and by a wide margin.
