As Trump Barricades the Border, Legal Immigration Is Beginning to Plunge

Andrew Yang ends 2020 presidential campaign

It’s the end to an upstart run that vaulted the businessman from obscurity to a Democratic contender backed by a devoted following known as the Yang Gang. Yang’s decision comes a week after a disappointing finish in Iowa, where the campaign invested millions and spent two weeks on a bus tour leading up to the caucuses. The investment didn’t pan out: Yang finished with just 1% support in Iowa and, after leaving the state with depleted resources, had to lay
