Disturbing details

Bomb-maker investigation

After 10 bombs have been found sent to high-profile political figures, authorities are looking for whomever is responsible. The investigation is focused on a postal facility in Opa-locka, FL. More devices could still surface in the coming days.

As a migrant caravan makes its way north through Mexico, President Donald Trump has criticized the gathering and blamed it on Democrats. Now, federal troops are being sent to the border to help with security. Trump has vowed to not let the migrants cross the border.
