According to North Korea monitoring website "38 North":

Commercial satellite imagery of the launch pad from July 20 shows that the rail-mounted processing/transfer structure has been moved to the middle of the pad, exposing the underground rail transfer point—one of the few times it has been seen in this location. The roof and supporting structure have been partially removed and numerous vehicles are present—including a large construction crane. An image from two days later shows the continued presence of the crane and vehicles. Considerable progress has been made in dismantling the rail-mounted processing/transfer structure. One corner has been completely dismantled and the parts can be seen lying on the ground. In both images the two fuel/oxidizer bunkers, main processing building and gantry tower remain untouched.

  On June 12, 2018 President Trump met with North Korean (DPRK) Chairman Kim Jong Un in Singapore, the first meeting between a sitting U.S. President and North Korean leader.  The two leaders discussed denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.   Howevever, a U.S. intelligence report released Monday November 12, 2018 suggests North Korea not only stopped dismantling this base but it is also continuing to make improvements at more than a dozen other missile bases.

The George W. Bush administration created a program called Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest ("MAVNI"), which "allows legal, nonpermanent resident immigrants to join the military and get fast track citizenship."  Over 10,000 immigrants have participated in this program, mostly through the U.S. Army.  All participants must have previous legal status in the United States before entering the program and must undergo a lengthy screening and background check process that involves the C.I.A. and the F.B.I. "Some of the service members say they were not told why they were being discharged. Others who pressed for answers said the Army informed them they’d been labeled as security risks because they have relatives abroad or because the Defense Department had not completed background checks on them." It is currently unclear how many immigrant troops are being discharged.
