Need To Know.
Crisis in Hong Kong.
Protesters clashed with police as an estimated one million people demonstrated against a proposed bill that would allow extradition to China. Hong Kong and China have maintained a tenuous relationship since the territory was returned to China by the British in 1997, and the semi-autonomous region maintains separate governing and economic systems from the mainland. The majority of its 7.4 million residents identify as Hongkongers rather than Chinese (read more). Under the bill, people accused of a crime by the Chinese government in Hong Kong would be sent to the mainland for trial. Opponents say the law would allow the central government to target pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, which has a rich history of demonstrations, while eroding civil liberties and ceding authority to Beijing. The ruling Communist Party in China endorses the legislation - debate on the bill begins Wednesday.

Tariffs Averted.
President Trump put his plan to impose tariffs on Mexican imports on hold Friday, after Mexican officials agreed to additional steps to reduce the flow of Central American immigrants to the US-Mexico border. The White House announced the tariffs - which would've applied a 5% tax on Mexican goods, beginning today - last week, over what it said was insufficient efforts by Mexico to address a surge in immigrants reaching the border. Under the deal, Mexico will send an estimated 6,000 national guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala and allow more migrants seeking asylum in the US to remain in Mexico while their cases are adjudicated. The US imported over $346B in goods from Mexico in 2018, and analysts estimate the 5% tariffs would cost approximately $17B per year in reduced trade, rising to $86B if the tariffs rise to 25% (the maximum under the plan).
