Joe Biden Says Donald Trump Does Not Come Up With Any Solution Of Infiltration For US Border With Mexico

New Delhi: Joe Biden said that President Donald Trump is sowing fear at the US border with Mexico, not delivering solutions, after another month when about 100,000 immigrants were arrested trying to enter the country illegally.

“The idea that we are just trying to scare the living devil out of the American public — ‘My God, hordes are coming,’ the way he characterizes it — is just simply wrong,” Biden told reporters near downtown Los Angeles.

The Democratic candidate for president and former vice president said he soon will release a proposal to address the nation’s long-running border problems.

New Delhi: Colombo-based Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRCS) said that about 200 children in Sri Lanka have lost their family members, some of them sole breadwinners, in the massive Easter Sunday bombings.

Nine suicide bombers carried out a series of devastating blasts that tore through three churches and as many luxury hotels on the Easter Sunday, killing more than 250 people. The ISIS terror group claimed the attacks, but the government blamed local Islamist extremist group National Thawheed Jammath (NTJ) for the bombings. The victims included over 40 foreigners, 10 of whom were Indians.
