Non-criminal arrests by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have more than doubled under Trump, rising to 10,800 between January 22 and April 29 this year compared 4,200 over a similar period last year. Why that's happening, per ICE:

ICE will no longer exempt any class of individuals from removal proceedings if they are found to be in the country illegally.

ICE added that its "agents and officers have been given clear direction to focus on threats to public safety and national security."

More than 41,000 people in total were arrested on immigration charges in those 100 days, a nearly 40% increase from last year.

Ford announced Tuesday that James Farley will take over as its next CEO, replacing James Hackett, 65, who is retiring after three years in the job.

Why it matters: It leaves Farley to complete the company's ongoing turnaround effort. The transition will be that much harder as the industry tries to navigate the coronavirus-induced economic slowdown which shuttered Ford plants for two months on the eve of some of its most important vehicle launches.
