The U.S. is considering sending money to Central Americans in an attempt to stem the flow of migration.A senior White House official told Reuters the program would aim to address the economic woes pushing people to move.There's been a steady increase in arrivals at the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months.Some 168,000 people were picked up by U.S. Border Patrol agents in March - the highest monthly tally in twenty years.Roberta Jacobson, the White House's southern border coordinator, said the potential program would be targeted at people in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.She told Reuters: "We're looking at all of the productive options to address both the economic reasons people may be migrating, as well as the protection and security reasons." Republicans have already hit out at the idea.House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Friday that the idea was insulting to millions of Americans out of work.Republicans also blame the recent surge in arrivals on Biden's decision to reverse former President Donald Trump's hardline immigration policies.Biden has instead called for $4 billion in development aid to Central America over four years to address the underlying causes of migration.On Friday, the White House requested $861 million from Congress for that effort in Biden's first annual budget proposal.

Federal discretionary spending is up by 8.4% compared to 2021 levels, excluding emergency funding, to $1.52 trillion, with a focus on health, education and climate. About two-thirds of the massive budget is "mandatory" spending for benefits like Social Security and Medicare. Because it is lower than former President Donald Trump's 2022 projections, it may also anger Republican defense hawks pushing for more spending.

Sergio Flores/ReutersThe man who killed one person and wounded five others in a shooting at a cabinetry business in Bryan, Texas, on Thursday afternoon was an employee, police say.Larry Winston Bollin, 27, was taken into police custody about two hours after the rampage and booked on a charge of murder, according to the Bryan Police Department. Investigators have yet to determine a motive, and the victims have not yet been identified. Two of the five people injured were in critical condition as of late Thursday, while three others were said to be in stable condition. A state trooper who was shot during a pursuit of the suspect was in “serious but stable condition” following the manhunt. The Bryan Police Department said the shooting on Stone City Drive took place at around 2:30 p.m. local time. Police believe the shooter opened fire within Kent Moore Cabinets, where hundreds of people work, in the Brazos County Industrial Park. “Right now we feel that the scene is safe,” Lieutenant Jason James told reporters while a manhunt was still underway for the shooter. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement on the shooting, “I’ve been working with the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers as they assist local law enforcement on a swift response to this criminal act. Their efforts led to the arrest of the shooting suspect. Cecilia & I are praying for the victims & their families & for the injured officer.”A nearby school, Jane Long Intermediate, temporarily went into lockdown during the police response and would not release students but later lifted the measure, according to local reports.The shooting happened just hours after President Joe Biden gave a White House Rose Garden address on gun reform, calling gun violence “an epidemic” and “an international embarrassment.”On Wednesday, five people, including a beloved family doctor and his grandkids, were killed in a mass shooting in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The suspect, former NFL pro Phillip Adams, shot himself before he could be apprehended.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
