Pence made that clear in a Tuesday night letter on White House stationary to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "They're telling him he can't," one of the GOP sources close to the White House said. And a wave of recent departures also came from top White House staffers citing the attack on the Capitol.. "This is him by himself and it is something that has never happened before," said one former senior Trump administration official.

But none of that has had the desired effect: Traffickers have paid millions of dollars to US border agents to keep drugs and people flowing throughout Trump's time in office. The cartel operative in El Paso confirmed that was a method to entice border agents. In September, six border agents were arrested on suspicion of stealing cocaine and marijuana from dealers to sell in the US. Jenn Budd, a former Border Patrol agent in San Diego, said corruption is part of Border Patrol culture. Budd, now a whistleblower about Border Patrol corruption, thinks management is responsible for corruption and abuse inside the agencies.

MATAMOROS, Mexico — Griselda was 38 weeks pregnant when she sneaked across the Rio Grande into the United States late one night last year. When she finally gave birth 10 days later, her tiny daughter joined her there until a local shelter made room for them. The wide-ranging new controls on immigration put into place under the Trump administration have made it harder for migrants of all kinds to cross the Southern border, but they have been particularly difficult for pregnant women, who often arrive at the border after arduous journeys, in a state of exhaustion. Previously, many such women would be allowed to petition for asylum and give birth in safety in the United States while their cases were being considered. But most now, like Griselda, are sent swiftly back to Mexico to take their chances in crowded shelters and filthy tent camps.

Melissa and her husband, both Christian missionaries from Mexico, had been living outside Austin for about a year when they discovered she was pregnant. Melissa planned to deliver her baby at a birthing center — a licensed facility that accepts cash payments from low-income women. But Ms. Rojas, who was helping her by providing naturopathic prenatal care, worried that Melissa would not make it nine months without requiring a medical intervention. The next evening, in the darkness of her hospital room, Melissa asked about paying her bill in cash. As the nurse turned down the lights in her room, Melissa closed her eyes, trying not to think about the future, but she could not sleep all night.

Maria Hinojosa may be one of the country's most well-known and respected Latina journalists, but as she describes in her highly acclaimed, recently published memoir, her path to success was not a given. It means a lot to me, especially since I really haven’t left my apartment in Harlem in months.”"Once I Was You," a memoir by Maria Hinojosa. Writing a book is a solitary experience, Hinojosa noted, so she has missed the experience of doing live readings and appearances. I had good times and bad times, and they were formative moments in my life as a journalist. Hinojosa’s last words to her were, “I see you — because once I was you.”Fighting "incorrect narratives"Surveying today’s media landscape, Hinojosa has mixed feelings.
