Trump seeks to cut foreign aid to 3 Central American nations

This June 2018 file photo shows protesters walking along Montana Avenue outside the El Paso Processing Center in El Paso, Texas. Two dozen people being held in immigration detention in Louisiana are on a hunger strike to protest their inability to be free while making a case for asylum. Immigrant advocates say the strike started last week with about 150 people, but U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says only 24 people have continuously denied meals. The strike follows one in El Paso in which ICE force-fed some of the detainees after obtaining a court order. (Rudy Gutierrez/The El Paso Times via AP, File)
