Trump, a Republican who has made cracking down on illegal imm

igration a centerpiece of his administration, is trying to deal with a surge of mostly Cen上海夜生活品茶微信

tral American families crossing the US-Mexico border. Many families are approaching border officials to seek asylum.

上海夜生活品茶微信The latest planned arrests would follow widespread criticism of the crowded, unsanitary conditions in which immigr

ants are being detained along the southwestern borde

r and concerns about children being separated from adults by border officials.上海夜生活

In a hearing on the subject on Friday at the US House of Representatives, some Democra

ts said they feared the forthcoming arrests could result in more immigrant children being separated from their families.上海夜生活品茶微信

Elijah Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, asked a fed

上海夜生活eral watchdog about its recently issued report saying detention conditions were below standards.

Jennifer Costello, the acting inspector general for the Departm

ent of Homeland Security, told the congressional hearing that the government was falling short in term上海夜生活品茶微信

s of “crowding, the prolonged detention, some of the hygiene that the children are supposed to have.”

Costello said it would be “impossible” to meet required standards under “the conditions that we saw there.”

Trump sent Vice President Mike Pence to visit some of the criticized detention facilities in Mc上海夜生活

Allen, Texas, on Friday along with journalists, who have generally been denied access to detained immigrants.

上海夜生活品茶微信Reporters who joined the tour saw immigrants, including children, lying on mats on the flo

or covered with thin aluminum blankets. A few toys lay about, and some watched television.

The Trump administration has increased pressure on the govern上海夜生活

ments of Mexico and several Central American countries to stem the flow of migrants reaching the US border.

Trump is to meet with Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales at the White House on Monday for talks on immigrati

上海夜生活品茶微信on and security. Morales may sign an agreement with Trump declaring Guatemala a safe destination for asylum seekers, wh

ich could prevent many from applying in the United States, according to officials in both governments.

Alongside these international efforts, Trump has sought to deter border crossings with highly publicized crackdowns in the United States.上海夜生活

The operation that Trump said would start on Sunday is an example. ICE is expected to t

arget families whose immigration cases were handled through an expedited court process that began in 2018.

上海夜生活品茶微信The agency has notified about 2,000 of those people that they fa

ce deportation because they failed to appear in court, acting ICE Director Mark Morgan said last month.

Immigration rights activists have complained that in many cases immigrants, espe上海夜生活

cially those involved in expedited hearings, do not receive proper notice of their court dates.

ICE has declined to discuss the weekend’s operation, including whether those families are among those being targeted.

The American Civil Liberties Union and other civil rights groups sue上海夜生活品茶微信

d this week to stop the arrests going ahead, asking a court to prevent the deportation of

asylum-seeking families who missed their court dates until they at least get a hearing.

In 1972, David Bowie gave birth to arguably his most famous alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust-an androgynous alien with spiky tangerine h

air, theatrical makeup and brightly-colored glam rock attire. An eponymous ode to the character appears on

Bowie’s album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, which was released that year.

With the album, Bowie redefined glam rock and spent 18 months in the

years 1972 and 1973 touring the United Kingdom, North America and Japan.

During the tour, Bowie invited a Cambridge University graduate, M

ick Rock, to be his personal photographer. They first met backstage in March 1972.

The huge domestic consumer market in China will dige

est most of the unsalable exports, and many of China’s exports will also shift to other foreign markets. The US will continu

e to purchase China-made goods if there are no substitutes, but US consumers will need to pay more, Guo said.

Research released by the International Monetary Fund on Friday showed that some of these tariffs have

been passed on to US consumers, while others have been absorbed by importers leading to lower profit margins.

US restrictions on high-tech exports to China will push up Washington’s trade deficit with China, and

rising prices could also reverse the low inflation in the US. Meanwhile, any speculative trading on the Chin

ese currency amid its depreciation pressure will “inevitably suffer from a huge loss”, Guo said in his speech.

Footwear makers: cut and run from tariffsrtment at the

US sneaker giant Nike and fancy shoemaker Allen Edmonds have joined the chorus of busines

s groups calling for the White House to hit the brakes on its move to raise duties on Chinese shoes an

d other products, further challenging President Donald Trump’s claim that China is paying for the tariffs.

A week after Trump threatened to impose tariffs on the remaining $300 billion of goods imported from Chi

na, more than 100 American shoe and sneaker companies, brands and retailers signed an open letter to the president saying the p

olicy “would be catastrophic” for consumers, businesses and the US economy.

“Your proposal to add tariffs on all imports from China is ask

ing the American consumer to foot the bill,” said the letter, dated on Monday and signed by

the companies. It was posted on the website of the Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America (FDRA).

Chinese exporters have from 20 to 50 percent of the

 US market in other low-value-added markets, plus electrical machinery and equipment, mechanical

appliances, and iron and steel. In most other categories, China has less than 20 percent of the US market.

China also assembles and then exports a lot of phones, computers and other gadgets to the US. But, most of the profits and

wages go to Japanese or South Korean component producers or US-based designers. For example, China ma

kes less than $9 from each iPhone. The total price of a phone is ridiculously counted as a Chinese export to the US.

It’s a good thing that China is no longer a low-wage country. Most Chinese

are much better off than they were even 10 years ago. But it does mean that these lo

w-skilled, labor-intensive industries will be moving to less-developed nations. US tariffs on such products will only se

rve to hasten the transition to higher value-added industries that China has to make anyway.

nitiative proves worth as welcome public good: China Da

Convening nearly 40 foreign leaders and representatives from more than 150 countries, th

e Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, which opens in Beijing on Thursday, testifi

es to a growing aspiration for collaboration amid rising unilateralism and protectionism.

The conspicuous increase in the size of foreign participation com

pared with the inaugural forum two years ago corrobo

rates United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres’ earlier comment that the Belt and Road Initia

tive, like the UN Millennium Development Goals, is a public good for the entire world.

Since President Xi Jinping proposed the Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st Century Maritime Silk Road in 2013, some pe

ople have tried to persistently frame them as geopolitical tools. While such a label and subsequent fearmong

ering have stirred up worries in the ill-informed, they can’t hoodwink those with insight.

Bernard Dewit, chairman of the Belgian-Chinese Cham

ber of Commerce, said that industrial and trade relations between the EU and China will i

ncrease following the meeting, and that China has made great efforts to open its market to European companies.

“China’s new Foreign Investment Law, which has just been (approved), will greatly reassure European investors of the com

mitment of the Chinese government to further protect foreign investments in China,” he said.

Wang Yiwei, a professor of international relations at Renmin University of China, said in an article

published in the People’s Daily Overseas Edition on Wednesday that the Chinese and EU lead

ers’ strategic communication on important issues will help foster new areas for bilateral cooperation.

The concerted efforts made by the two sides to cope with the common challenges

and develop win-win cooperation will add stability to an increasingly uncertain world, he added.

On the China-CEEC leaders’ meeting, Chen said the

mechanism has made good achievements in economic cooperation over the past several years, including freight trains running between C

hina and Europe. The mechanism should continue focusing on concrete projects in infrastructure and other key areas, she said.

People-to-people exchanges, including education and tourism, should also be stren

gthened to improve mutual understanding between their people, Chen added.

China will take key measures in a new push to improve its cities through boosting the urban pop

ulation and bolstering the nation’s high-quality and stable economic growth, the country’s top economic planner said.

Measures include relaxing residency curbs, promoting investmen

t and financing mechanisms and increasing infrastructure spending in cities.

The National Development and Reform Commission issued on Monday key tasks for 2019’s new urbanizatio

n boost, which will help maintain the country’s sustainable and healthy economic growth and overall social stability.

China aims to increase the urbanization rate by at least 1 percentage point by the end of this year, accordi

ng to a document posted on the NDRC’s website. The proportion of urban population to total population reached 59.58 percent in 2018.
