We're putting the focus back on President Trump's immigration policy. Four members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council resigned this week. They cited the Trump administration's "morally repugnant, counter-productive and ill-considered" family separation policy. Also, some of the children who were separated from their parents at the border were housed inside a vacant Phoenix office building that lacked proper sanitation facilities. Plus, how China's new standards for processing recycled materials is forcing American communities to clean up their acts.
