Judge Richard Seeborg blocks Trump wait-in-Mexico asylum policy

US President Donald Trump smiles at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu right after signing a proclamation formally recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights in the Diplomatic Reception Room at the White House in Washington Mo

"No, she doesn't like Israel, does she?" the President told crowds to applause, referencing comments she made about the United States pro-Israel lobby for which she apologised "unequivocally".

"Republicans believe that we must never ignore the vile poison of anti-Semitism". The president had previously sparked widespread condemnation after declaring that there were "some very fine people on both sides" of the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, at which neo-Nazis had shouted, "Jews will not replace us".

Trump has seized on recent infighting within the Democratic Party over comments from Omar that were widely perceived as using anti-Semitic tropes and called on the freshman lawmaker to resign over those remarks. American Jews who dislike Netanyahu view Gantz as preferable, due in part to a less combative personality, but liberals note with frustration that the platform of Gantz's Blue and White party makes no mention of Palestinian statehood, and says that Israel will maintain control of parts of the West Bank.

On Monday, Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco granted a request on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America and legal advocacy groups to halt the practice while their lawsuit moves forward, but he held off on enforcing his decision until Friday to give the government a chance to ask an appeals court for a review. At their March 25 meeting, Trump signed a proclamation officially granting US recognition of the Golan as Israeli territory, a dramatic departure from decades of USA policy.

Just hours after Carlineo's arrest, Trump mocked Omar before an audience of Jewish Republicans.

Israel captured the Golan in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed it in 1981 in a move not recognized internationally.

But he did once again express confidence in his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is working on the plan.

Travel agency Flight Centre said the company "vehemently opposes" the application of Sharia law in Brunei . However, she did not go as far as responding to calls for Brunei to be ejected from the Commonwealth.

How does Trump see the election: "I think it's going to be close".

Before the U.S. president's appearance, people gathered for the event, carrying signs reading "We are Jews for Trump" and "Trump" written in Hebrew.

"Regardless of the victor, the utter erasure of Palestinian humanity from this election cycle and the normalization of an undemocratic and immoral military occupation should alarm any Jew who cares about freedom and dignity of Israelis and Palestinians", Mayer said in an email. Several attendees were wearing red yarmulkes bearing "Trump" and "RJC".

In 2016, Jewish voters went for Hillary Clinton over Trump by 71 percent to 24 percent, according to records from the Jewish Virtual Library, a project of the American-Israel Cooperative Enterprise.

Although little is known about the proposed itinerary, Trump's visit may include an official banquet at Buckingham Palace and a carriage procession down the Mall. But at one point, he told the crowd that he "stood with your prime minister at the White House".

"And now the Democrats have allowed the awful scourge of antisemitism to take root in their party and in this country", said President Trump.
