Prototypes for Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall
President Trump defended his plan for a wall along the U.S. southern border on Thursday after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said some of the immigration policies Trump touted during the campaign — including the wall — had “changed.”

“The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it,” the president tweeted. “Parts will be, of necessity, see through and it was never intended to be built in areas where there is natural protection such as mountains, wastelands or tough rivers or water.”

Here’s a look at eight prototypes constructed in Otay Mesa in San Diego, Calif., by six contractors competing to build Trump’s “Big Beautiful Wall.”

Activists protest against Trump’s immigration policies
Three people were arrested for blocking the entrance to Sen. Chuck Schumer’s office in New York Wednesday, as approximately two dozen immigration advocates gathered in midtown Manhattan in the snow and freezing rain to demand that the Senate’s top Democrat reject any version of a government spending bill that doesn’t have the DREAM Act attached.

The small demonstration was one of several aimed at both Republican and Democratic members of Congress around the country this week, part of a push to tie key immigration legislation to a government spending bill ahead of a looming government shutdown on Friday.

Blessing of the animals on St. Anthony’s Day
The feast of St. Anthony, Spain’s patron saint of animals, is celebrated each year. On that day, pet owners bring their pets to churches to be blessed.

On the eve of St. Anthony’s Day, riders guide their horses through a bonfire in the village of San Bartolome de Pinares as part of the Luminarias ritual in honor of St. Anthony the Abbot. This 500-year-old tradition is meant to purify the animals with the smoke of the bonfires and to protect them for the year. (AP/Reuters)

Philippine volcano spews lava; thousands flee
Glowing-red lava spurted in a fountain and flowed down the Philippines’ most active volcano on Tuesday in a stunning display of its fury that has sent more than 34,000 villagers fleeing to safety and prompted police to set up checkpoints to stop tourists from getting too close.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said the lava flowed as much as 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) from the often cloud-shrouded crater of Mount Mayon, while ash fell on several villages in northeastern Albay province. (AP)
