Hundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the city south of California on Sunday to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived via caravan in hopes of a new life in the U.S.
Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road, and with many more months ahead of them while they seek asylum. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000.
U.S. border inspectors are processing only about 100 asylum claims a day at Tijuana's main crossing to San Diego.
Thousands of people crowded Capital One Arena in D.C. Saturday night for Michelle Obama's "Becoming" book tour event — which included a special surprise for the former first lady.
Lines outside the arena were reminiscent of the crowds the venue might see for major concerts and sporting events.
Many people told News4 that braving the sold-out crowd was well worth it to see Obama speak.
"Oh my gosh, just to be in her presence. And I love what she embodies - just the spirit of women, empowering women. It’s really exciting," Dionne Powell said.

President Donald Trump is name-calling Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff for saying Matthew Whitaker's appointment as acting attorney general is unconstitutional.
Trump says Schiff shouldn't complain that Whitaker wasn't confirmed by the Senate because neither was special counsel Robert Mueller, who's investigating 2016 election interference and possible ties between Moscow and Trump's campaign.
The Justice Department appoints special counsels.

The Browns' coaching search isn't quite ready to cross gender or diplomatic lines.
General manager John Dorsey, who opened the possibility of hiring a woman to be Cleveland's next coach, said Sunday that the team has not discussed former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as a candidate to become the club's ninth coach since 1999.
ESPN, citing an anonymous league source, reported that the team would like to interview Rice, an ardent Browns fan since childhood, for its coaching job.

Georgia has certified its Nov. 6 election results, finally ending the contentious race for governor.
Georgia Secretary of State Robyn Crittenden said late Saturday the results are certified and can be viewed on the agency's website.
Democrat Stacey Abrams came within about 60,000 votes of becoming America's first black woman governor but lost to Republican Brian Kemp.
Official results from the secretary of state's office say that Kemp defeated Abrams by 54,723 votes out of more than 3.9 million ballots cast.
Kemp had to get more than 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff against Abrams. Official results show he garnered 50.22 percent of the vote

There's no reason to skip Thanksgiving dinner because of a salmonella outbreak linked to raw turkey.
That's according to health officials who've been monitoring the year-old outbreak. But they say it's a reminder to properly prepare your holiday bird. Cooking kills salmonella.
The ongoing outbreak and recall last week of ground turkey may nevertheless leave you with a few questions when reaching for a plate of turkey.
During an interview with Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday," President Donald Trump seemed to reject the idea of soon sitting with special counsel Robert Mueller for an interview, among multiple other subjects.
On Mueller, Trump all but shut down the idea that he would sit for an interview with the special counsel, adding that he will soon turn over his answers to written questions to the special counsel "at some point very soon."
Asked if there would be "no interview" with Mueller, Trump said he thought "we've wasted enough time on this witch hunt and the answer is probably, we're finished" after he submits the written answers.

A man who yelled "Heil Hitler! Heil Trump!" at a theater performance of "Fiddler on the Roof" in Baltimore says he's sorry for the outburst.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Anthony M. Derlunas II said in an interview with the newspaper that his comments were "beyond a mistake."
The 58-year-old said he'd been drinking heavily before the show. Derlunas said the classic play, based on a Yiddish story that tells of a Jewish family persecuted in tsarist Russia, reminded him of President Donald Trump's immigration policies, which prompted his outburst.

The 2018 midterms remade Congress for the next two years, but they also hinted at a changing electoral map for the next presidential race. Broad gaps in exit poll numbers combined with the results for Nov. 6 suggest that the battleground states of 2020 may look a bit different than they did in the 2016 campaign, NBC News reported.
Three numbers jump out of the national House exit poll data: The Republican edge with white voters, the growing Democratic advantage with voters who hold a bachelor's degree and the consistent Democratic lean among Hispanics.
Ohio had two Republican-held competitive House seats in 2018 - one "tossup" and one "lean Republican" according to the Cook Political Report - and both wound up going for the Republican candidate fairly comfortably. And in the state's gubernatorial race, an open seat to replace Republican John Kasich, the GOP's Mike DeWine won in a race that, again, was forecasted as a tossup.

Stacey Abrams broke the rules of politics until the very end.
The Georgia Democrat who came about 60,000 votes shy of becoming America's first black woman governor refused to follow the traditional script for defeated politicians who offer gracious congratulations to their victorious competitor and gently exit the stage. Instead, Abrams ended her campaign in an unapologetically indignant tone that established herself as a leading voting rights advocate.
"I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election," Abrams said in a fiery 12-minute address.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday he was heading into a meeting with his top coalition partner in a "last effort" to prevent the collapse of his government, which has been rocked by the resignation of its defense minister over a cease-fire agreement with Gaza militants.
Speaking at his weekly Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said it would be unwise to embark on a divisive election campaign during such a sensitive time for Israeli security. He said he would try to convince Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon and his centrist Kulanu party to stay in the fold.

An acrimonious meeting of world leaders in Papua New Guinea failed to agree Sunday on a final communique, highlighting widening divisions between global powers China and the U.S.
The 21 nations at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Port Moresby struggled to bridge differences on the role of the World Trade Organization, which governs international trade, officials said. A statement was to be issued instead by the meeting's chair, Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O'Neill.
"The entire world is worried" about tensions between China and the U.S., O'Neill told a mob of reporters that surrounded him after he confirmed there was no communique from leaders.

A mother searching for her son, a husband who lost his wife to a stroke two months ago, two roommates just trying to survive — all victims of California’s deadliest and most destructive wildfire, all living in their cars in the Chico Neighborhood Church parking lot because they want to be near the only thing they have left — their dogs. These are their stories.
Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum on Saturday conceded in the Florida gubernatorial election to Ron DeSantis.
Gillum, the Democratic candidate, made the statement in a post on Twitter that comes two days after the machine recount results showed Republican DeSantis maintained his lead and the margin between both candidates was not enough to trigger a manual recount.
"I want to congratulate @RonDeSantisFL on becoming the next Governor of the great state of Florida. My wife R. Jai and I could not be prouder of the way we ran this race. We could not be more thankful to my running mate, @ChrisKingFL and his wife Kristen," Gillum wrote.
