*U.S. Added 151K Jobs in August:
The U.S. economy continued to build momentum in August, with employers adding 151,000 workers to their payrolls, the Labor Department reported early Friday. The unemployment rate held steady at 4.9 percent for the third consecutive month, and average hourly wages rose 0.1 percent. August is seen by economists as a difficult month to measure, as summer vacations and the new school year throw off companies’ usual hiring decisions. Federal Reserve officials and the financial markets are closely watching the jobs numbers for clues regarding an expected increase in interest rates.

*LBN-COMMENTARY by Charles Krauthammer: The one great service of Donald Trump’s extended peregrinations on immigration policy is to have demonstrated how, in the end, there’s only one place to go. You can rail for a year about the squishy soft, weak-kneed and stupid politicians who have opened our borders to the wretched refuse of Mexico. You can promise to round them up — the refuse, that is, not the politicians (they’re next) — and deport them. And that may win you a plurality of Republican primary votes. But eventually you have to let it go. For all his incendiary language and clanging contradictions, Trump did exactly that in Phoenix on Wednesday. His “deportation task force” will be hunting . . . criminal aliens. Isn’t that the enforcement priority of President Obama, heretofore excoriated as the ultimate immigration patsy? And what happens to the noncriminal illegal immigrants? On that, Trump punted. Their “appropriate disposition” will be considered “in several years when we have . . . ended illegal immigration for good.” Everyone knows what that means: One way or another, they will be allowed to stay.
