Notations On Our World (Friday Edition): Out & About in Our Home State

As President Trump's threat to close the Southern Border lingers on and as aid has been cut to Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, Governor Newsom will be leaving for El Salvador as noted by the team at CalMatters: 

Newsom discusses his upcoming Central America trip.
With the Trump administration threatening to cut aid to three Central American countries and close the Mexican border, Gov. Gavin Newsom is prepping for an April 7 trip to El Salvador.
  • The trip is being billed as a response to what’s happening at California’s southern border. But CALmatters’ Elizabeth Aguilera, who’ll be tagging along, writes that it also contrasts California’s approach to immigration with that of the Trump administration.
  • Newsom has allocated $5 million for a migrant shelter in San Diego and other community organizations helping asylum seekers.
President Donald Trump: “Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action. Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing. The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws. May close the Southern Border!”
Meanwhile at the border, the long wait to apply for asylum now extends even to unaccompanied migrant children, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. 
U-T: “A backlog of [at least 50] children waiting to ask the U.S. for help has formed in Tijuana with many saying that they were turned away from ports of entry by U.S. and Mexican officials working together. Though asylum seekers have had to queue in Tijuana for their turns to ask the U.S. for protection for well over a year, Customs and Border Protection has said that children traveling without an adult aren’t supposed to have to wait in that line because it considers them to be a vulnerable group.”
