Jail systems in other cities have also faced legal challenges contending it's unconstitutional to keep a person in jail after they're released on bail or complete their sentence.

Jake Turx, a Hasidic Jew and new White House correspondent, spent a hour shaping his question about anti-Semitism to make it seem friendly to President Donald Trump. Trump didn't realize Turx, 30, agreed that the president had been treated unfairly when it came to claims of anti-Semitism. Turx started his question with a preamble of sorts praising Trump, saying his community had not accused the president or his staff of anti-Semitism, but then shifted to ask about rising anti-Semitism and the frequent, recent bomb threats to Jewish community centers.

"We have no evidence that anybody has suffered ill health effects from breathing air that came through these hoses," Stephan Monroe, associate director for laboratory science and safety at the CDC, told Reuters.
