Good evening and thank you for joing us.

I'm rylie livingston an agreement between the u-s and mexico on immigration enforcement ends the looming tariffs on mexican goods.

Melisa raney has details.

President trump making a dramatic reversal on his threat to impose tariffs against mexico.

Friday, the president tweeting that the tariffs are "indefinitely suspended" aft the u-s and mexico came to an agreement on immigration enforcement.

It was just last week that trump threatened to impose tariffs on all mexican goods entering the u-s if mexico did not do more to limit the number of central american migrants moving through the country and into the us.

The state department says the agreement means mexico will now take those steps --- deploying its national guard throughout the country --- giving priority to mexico's southern border.

Republicans like representative ted yoho say trump's tariff threat was the way to go... rep.

Ted yoho: "we stood with the presiden to put tariffs on there to put pressure on the mexican government because when we met with mexican ambassador, they all tell us that they depend on a strong america.

Well, with this influx of people coming in overloading our system, that doesn't make america stronger, it weakens america."

However not everyone supports how the deal played out --- house speaker nancy pelosi saying the deal doesn't address the root causes of central american migration.

In a statement released saturday, she said "presiden trump must stop sabotaging good-faith, constructive, and bipartisan efforts in congress to address this complex problem in a humane manner that honors and respects our most cherished national values."

The students that were enrolled there have since been relocated to the union academy elementary school building a few blocks away.

And that's why the united way partnered with mississippi university for women and spent the day with their mississippi governor's school scholars cleaning and getting the building ready for the upcoming school year.

Our cash matlock has the story.

Over 60 scholars from muw's mississippi governor's school program spent the day volunteering their time at union academy in columbus.

"they are dusting.

They'r cleaning the blinds.

They're cleaning the windows.

They're wiping down everything, sweeping, just really getting the rooms cleaned up and ready for those teachers when they come in."

"there were at least like fiv spiders that i had to get rid of.

Then we had to clean the windows, basically get all the dust out of here.

I think we've done a very good job so far.

The air quality is a lot better and everything is looking way cleaner and nicer."

The volunteers are gearing up for the upcoming school year.

That's when students from the old hunt school are going to be relocated to union academy.

"being a former teacher, know how much the teachers are going to appreciate it.

It's one less thing they have to worry about.

They can just come in and start getting their classrooms ready for school."

"environment is key, especiall in school.

I hope they really like the new, clean setting.

I hope they have a better time learning."

Coordinators for the clean up say the event is a great opportunity for scholars form across the state to take part in community service.

"it's important for them t learn that there are things around their own communities that they can learn... that they can kind of give back."

"sometimes just getting little dirty and a little sweaty, it's ok to do that because you're giving back.

You are helping the community in one way weather its tutoring students, or cleaning up after a tornado, or cleaning up a classroom like this, it just helps to know that any little thing they can do, any little amount of time that they can give can help and it gives back to the community."

"i think it's just a good way fo students like us to go out and help people do something good."

And the volunteers hope their actions will inspire others to follow suit.

"i hope they learn that you ca work with anybody, and you can either become a leader or you can have a vital part in anything you do and make a difference and do something great."

"to come in and see this roo and see that other people, young students who are probably their age, have gone and gotten these rooms together for them, have prepared a space for them, have taken the time out of their day to do something, i think that makes a difference."

The mississippi governor's school is a two week summer program comprised of students from all across the magnolia state.

Today's event was a part of their community service day.

Fun, fellowship, and food was the theme today at the prairie community center annual fun day.

The ole miss rebels the stakes are much higher with this weekend's series..two wins away from omaha ole miss and arkansas starting their super regional.

Rebs trying to get to the college world series for first time since 2014.

Isaiah campbell pitching for the razorbacks.

Top 1st, 1 out, grae kessinger catches campbell lacking and crushes one deep into left field.

That's a no doubter.

He grounds one into a 6-4-3 double play to end the inning and hopes of a but things aren't over.

Far from over as there is still a game 2 to be played.

There's still a chance for the rebs to make this a series.

This isn't the first time nor might it be the last time the rebs will have their backs up against the wall.

Go back earlier in the season.

They went on a 6- game losing streak.

Then the sec tournament comes and they make a run to the championship game.

Boom!

They hosted a regional.

Also earlier in the season when they played arkansas and won that series, they lost the first game of that series.

So the guys and coach mike bianco, they understand the task at hand but they feel confident playing with their backs up against the wall.

Grae kessinger: this team plays well with their back up against the wall.

When you look at the sec tournament.

What we did the last time we were here.

This team just steps up to the challenge.

We pick each other up and go one pitch at a time and don't worry about the end result and just control what you can control and this team does a really good job at that.

Mike bianco: we've been in some of these situations.

Whether losing the first game or being in the loser bracket in the sec tournament so this team felt that a little bit and has been able to play well.

But it's different playing at this place against this team.

They are real good.

Now for game 2 doug nikhazy will be taking the mound.

He's been probably the most consistent pitcher on the mound for the rebs this season.

Great picher.

Great stuff.

Great breaking ball.

We'll see if he can get the win for the rebs and keep this season alive.

Keep hope alive and keep things going for ole miss as they try to scratch and claw their way to a college world series birth.

But for now reporting in fayetteville.
