Donald Trump has taken the political world on a rollercoaster ride over the past two weeks on his signature issue of immigration, suggesting last Tuesday he may be “softening” his deport-them-all stance. In a Wednesday night immigration policy speech in Arizona, Trump could clear up some of this confusion. The Hillary Clinton campaign is not expecting Trump to significantly alter his stance on wanting to deport all undocumented immigrants and is prepared to remind voters of his previous statements if he does.
After motorists and construction workers sprang into action last week to free a woman from a burning car after a tractor trailer barreled through several cars on an upstate New York highway, the mayor of the town has released new footage of the crash as a means of trying to identify the heroes who saved the day. A tractor trailer caused a 10-car accident on Route 17 in Binghamton, New York, last Thursday afternoon. 10 people involved in the pileup were taken to local hospitals for non-life threatening injuries, Press Connects reports. Dashcam video uploaded to Facebook by the mayor of the upstate New York town, David Rich, shows the devastating wreck from the perspective of one of the cars involved in the accident.

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a bid by North Carolina to reinstate for November’s elections several voting restrictions, including a requirement that people show identification at the polls. The eight-justice court, divided in most part 4-4, rejected a request made by Republican Governor Pat McCrory after an appeals court ruled last month that the 2013 law discriminates against minority voters. Elections in North Carolina this fall are going to be conducted under a fair and nondiscriminatory election law scheme," said Allison Riggs, a lawyer with the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, one of the civil rights groups that challenged the law.

Frank Ocean is an impressive car fanatic, as proven by him penning car essays and peppering marques into lyrics from his new album, Blonde. Diametrically opposing Ocean, in both automotive taste and adroitness, is Will.I.Am. Case in point: what he’s done to this poor Tesla Model S.

A second British backpacker died on Tuesday a week after he was stabbed trying to protect a fellow traveler during an attack at a hostel in northern Australia, police said. A 21-year-old woman, Mia Ayliffe-Chung, was killed last Tuesday when she was attacked by a 29-year-old Frenchman who shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) as he stabbed her at the hostel in Townsville in the state of Queensland. Thomas Jackson, 30, was stabbed in the face, head and body while trying to protect Ayliffe-Chung.
Donald Trump reaffirmed his commitment Tuesday morning to building a massive wall along the U.S.-Mexico border amid reports that the GOP nominee’s planned project might actually be a “virtual” rather than physical construction. Trump, whose proposed wall has been a centerpiece of his campaign since it was launched last summer, tweeted that the “great wall” would in fact be built along the country’s southern border — just as he’d been saying all along. Trump is scheduled to outline his immigration plan on Wednesday after weeks of heated discussion around whether or not he flip-flopped by softening his rhetoric on illegal immigrants.

The sheriff for metropolitan Phoenix trounced three rivals Tuesday to win his Republican primary in what could be the toughest campaign in his 24 years in office as he faces a storm of legal troubles stemming from his immigration patrols.

One of the most memorable images of The Night Of, the now-concluded HBO miniseries that seemed only to ever deal in memorable images, was among its simplest. In Sunday’s finale, the lawyer John Stone (John Turturro) presented his client Nasir Khan (Riz Ahmed) with the difficult decision of whether to report his other lawyer, Chandra (Amara Karan), for kissing Naz. Doing so could result in a mistrial—which could be a good thing for Naz, but would ruin Chandra’s career.
