Jake Monty, a former member of President Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council, once argued the “Latino case” for supporting the billionaire mogul’s presidential campaign but jumped ship in the middle of the 2016 campaign when Trump’s immigration proposals hardened in the mold of his nationalist advisers. Yahoo News reached out to Monty to see what he thinks now about Trump’s immigration policies, particularly the internment of undocumented children.

Sessions spoke with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Monday and defended his agency amid a growing outcry over family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border under the new DOJ policy. Last week, the Department of Homeland Security said nearly 2,000 children had been separated from their parents over a six-week period ending in May. Many of these children are being held in juvenile detention centers. Sessions said comparisons of those centers to the Nazis camps wasn’t fair because the Justice Department was simply trying to deter people from crossing the border, not keep them in the U.S.

Daniels is suing to end an agreement under which Cohen paid her $130,000 not to discuss an alleged intimate relationship she had with Trump beginning in 2006 and continuing in 2007.

Hundreds of thousands of homes in the United States could face persistent flooding as climate change pushes sea levels higher, according to a new report.

A new report from the Union of Concerned Scientists quantified the risk by comparing areas already known to be at high flood risk against data from the real estate website Zillow.
