WEST BANK, Mich.
— — The state’s unemployment rate climbed to 8.9 percent in July, its highest since June 2009.
The U.S. economy added nearly 100,000 jobs in July.
That’s a 5.7 percent increase from the previous month.
Despite the record number of Americans still out of work, the unemployment rate is still much lower than the national average of 15.3 percent.
Thats an improvement from January, when the rate hit 17.3.
The number of people in the U.N. refugee camp in Mexico dropped to 8,600, but there are still nearly 3,000 people there.
That is the largest number of refugees in the world since the 1950s.
The number of Syrian refugees in Lebanon is down from the peak in 2012, when more than half of the camp’s 1,500 people were refugees.
The U.K. is expected to receive its first refugees in 2020.
President Donald Trump has promised to deport as many as 10 million people and has said he wants to move the U-2 spy plane to Miami.
But in an interview with The Associated Press, he said he may change his mind after the election.
“I think it’s very important that we have a political process, but also a humane process,” Trump said.
Trump’s comments came after he signed a sweeping executive order to increase border security, including the building of a wall on the southern border and the hiring of 4,000 more Border Patrol agents.
