Several Democratic lawmakers said Monday that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen should resign in the wake of the Trump administration’s new zero-tolerance immigration policy that has resulted in thousands of children being detained and separated from their parents. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said in a statement that Nielsen’s “lack of transparency” at the department, combined with her “record of misleading statements including [Sunday’s] denial that the Administration even had a policy of separating children at the border,” should disqualify her from leading DHS. Harris was the first lawmaker to call on Nielsen to step down. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) also called on Nielsen to resign after touring the U.S.-Mexico border in San Diego on Monday.

About a year ago, 2005-2006 Ford GT designer Camilo Pardo decided it was time to part with his one-of-one "Solar 7" 2005 Ford GT, and sold it on the Petrolicious Marketplace.

The last-gen Ford GT is an appreciating asset, after all, and this one is arguably the most famous example out there.

The U.S. Supreme Court took a pass on setting limits on extreme partisan gerrymandering on Monday, saying the plaintiffs in the case didn’t have standing to challenge Wisconsin’s statewide assembly map.

The court has never said partisan gerrymandering is unconstitutional, leaving lawmakers from both political parties free to draw lines to their advantage.
