As some news outlets clamor for President Joe Biden and his administration to call the border situation a “crisis” while others instruct their reporters not to do so, the central challenge to the system has changed dramatically, according to CNN: The number of unaccompanied migrant children held in jail-like conditions by US Customs and Border Protection dropped nearly 84% in the span of a month, according to a White House official, underscoring the significant progress made by the administration after reaching record high custody figures. As of Wednesday, there were 954 children in CBP facilities, down from a peak of 5,767 on March 28, the official told CNN, speaking on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak on the record.

    (Adds quotes) WASHINGTON, March 25 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday said he had made it clear to Chinese President Xi Jinping that the United States was not looking for confrontation, but would insist that China play by international rules for fair competition and fair trade. Biden said he spent “hours upon hours” with Xi when he served as vice president under former President Barack Obama, and was convinced the Chinese leader believed that democracy doesn’t have a future. “He’s one of the guys, like (Russian President Vladimir) Putin, who thinks that autocracy is the wave of the future, (and) democracy can’t function in an ever-complex world,” Biden told a news conference at the White House. “He doesn’t have a democratic – with a small ‘d’ – bone in his body, but he’s a smart, smart guy,” he said. The president said he had a different view of the future, one that would require investing heavily in U.S. workers and science in order to compete with China. “We’re not looking for confrontation, although we know there will be...

    TAMPA — Carlos Mendoza was driving home from the Yankees’ win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday night when Aaron Boone called. The Yankees manager, who was hours removed from undergoing surgery to have a pacemaker inserted to address a low heart rate, peppered his bench coach with questions about what he missed. “As soon as he called, got on the phone, [his] first question was like, ‘How’d the boys look?’” Mendoza, who has assumed the manager duties in Boone’s absence, said Thursday morning. “I was like, ‘No no no no no, how are you feeling?’ He was like, ‘I’m great. I feel great. I can already tell the difference. I’m good. So tell me how the day went. I saw that [Corey] Kluber was good, Gary [Sanchez] hit a homer. What else went on?’  “So he goes back and tells you what type of leader he is. He’s in the hospital, he’s in bed, just got out of surgery and he just wants to know what’s going on here with our guys, what’s going on in that room.” Yankees...
