Tillis is following a simple formula for reelection in closely divided North Carolina by standing with Donald Trump. While some vulnerable Republicans have tried to hold the polarizing president at arm’s length, Tillis boasts of Trump’s endorsement for the 2020 elections. That may have immediate political benefit in his March 2020 primary, but it also comes with general-election risks in North Carolina. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

In this Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019, photo, Lizbeth poses for a portrait in a relative's home in Tijuana, Mexico. Lizbeth, a Salvadoran woman seeking asylum in the United States, never thought she would be returned to Mexico to wait for the outcome of her case, after suffering multiple assaults, and being kidnapped into prostitution on her journey through Mexico. Critics of the Trump administration's "Migrant Protection Protocols" policy, say it denies asylum seekers fair and humane treatment, largely by forcing them to wait in a country plagued by large pockets of drug-fueled violence, demonstrated this week by the slaughter near the U.S. border of several children and women.
