2,000 children have been separated from their parents in the last six weeks, housed in a former Walmart or small group homes, as part of the Trump administration’s hard-line immigration policy.
President Donald Trump came out swinging Friday, lodging a remarkable series of claims and accusations about a new watchdog report about the Justice Department's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of emails. In an impromptu press conference on the White House driveway, the president used the report to revive his complaints about the FBI and to declare himself exonerated in the ongoing Russia probe. THE FACTS: At no point did the Justice Department inspector general's 500-page report address whether Trump or his associates cooperated with Russia's efforts to sway the 2016 presidential election.
As elementary school teachers in South Williamsburg, we see the trauma that President Donald Trump’s policies inflict on immigrant communities on a daily basis. It means saying loud and clear that immigration policies that result in family separation― whether at the border or within the United States― are needless, shortsighted and cruel. Right now, two of our students are experiencing a family separation that offers a glimpse into the everyday tragedy our broken immigration system creates.

Yemeni pro-government forces, backed by Saudi Arabia, battled Huthi rebels around the key port city of Hodeida on Sunday, as a top UN envoy held crisis talks with the insurgents in the capital. Saudi Arabia and its allies in a regional military coalition on Wednesday launched an offensive aimed at retaking the Red Sea city of Hodeida, home to the country's most valuable port which is controlled by the Iran-backed Huthis. The United Nations has warned the offensive could spark a fresh humanitarian crisis in a country already hit by war and impending famine, sending its envoy for Yemen to the capital Sanaa in a bid to come to a solution with the rebels.

Kelli Bailiff said at a news conference Saturday that 44-year-old sheriff's Deputy Theresa King had three children and 35-year-old Deputy Patrick Rohrer had two.

A study in the journal Pediatrics links lack of sleep to higher odds for heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity. It found that less than a third of kids get the recommended amount of sleep.
A Justice Department watchdog report has turned into Washington's latest Rorschach test, with President Donald Trump and his critics each cherry picking what they want to see from its findings to either discredit or defend investigators conducting the probe into the White House. The 500-page report, which was more than a year in the making, offered a nuanced conclusion about the bureau's handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe, criticizing the FBI and its former director James Comey personally but not finding evidence that political bias tainted the investigation in the months and days leading up to Trump's election.
The Amazonian goddess is returning to the silver screen, and this time its the decade of decadence. It’s certainly a change from the costume she wore in the dark, colorless world of Zack Snyder’s 2016 “Batman v Superman,” where her character was first introduced. “Wonder Woman” grossed $822 million at the box office last year, and, with a 92 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s considered the DC Extended Universe’s most critically acclaimed film to date.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, tells Chuck Todd that his counterpart, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), didn't share information he received from the FBI.
By Madeline Chambers BERLIN (Reuters) - Migrant policy requires a European solution, German Chancellor Angela Merkel insisted on Saturday, ceding no ground in a showdown with her Bavarian allies that threatens her three-month-old coalition government. The row is over Merkel's rejection of plans by Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, from Bavaria, for Germany unilaterally to send back migrants who have registered in other European Union countries. Such a reversal of her 2015 open-door migrant policy would be a huge blow to the authority of Merkel, in power for more than 12 years, and undermine the Schengen open-border system at a time when EU tensions over migration are running high.
The first rays of dawn were just breaking through when the small speck was spotted in the Mediterranean’s turquoise waters off eastern Spain. It was the first of a three-vessel flotilla that for the past week has captured the world’s attention, triggering harsh words from European leaders, threatening to fracture alliances, provoking upheaval and illustrating how immigration, a polarizing topic in the U.S., is becoming the most fiery issue in Europe. Shunned by other Mediterranean countries, the Aquarius rescue boat, accompanied by two Italian military vessels, was finally, after a week on the high seas, headed for port in Valencia, an elegant city famous for oranges, paella and its annual festival of Las Fallas, in which oversized effigies are set alight, covering the city in smoke.
A blast at a ceasefire meeting of Taliban fighters in the country's east has killed up to 20 even as the war-weary country celebrated an unprecedented holiday truce in the long-running conflict. The explosion hit a meeting in Nangarhar province as fighters met to mark the Taliban's three-day ceasefire to mark the religious festival of Eid al-Fitr. At least one hardline Taliban splinter faction had previously said it would not abide by the truce, while the area is also known as a stronghold of the Islamic State group.
The chiefs of a medical startup company once worth billions of dollars have been charged with fraud in the US. Theranos was established by Elizabeth Holmes in 2003 when she was just a 19-year-old Stanford drop out. Within a year it had won $6m (£4.5m) backing from investors attracted by Ms Holmes’s desire to disrupt the industry monopoly over blood tests – and she was toasted as a rising star of Silicon Valley.
Nearly 2,000 minors have been separated from their families at the U.S. border over a six-week period during a crackdown on illegal entries, according to Department of Homeland Security figures obtained by The Associated Press. The figures show that 1,995 minors were separated from 1,940 adults from April 19 through May 31. The separations were not broken down by age, and they included separations for illegal entry, immigration violations or possible criminal conduct by the adult.
A Houston police officer bought groceries for a man whose were stolen when he passed out in a Walmart parking lot. Officer Kirsten Koryciak was off duty but working an extra shift at a local Walmart on June 11 when she spotted a “groggy looking” man who let her know he’d suffered a diabetic episode in the parking lot. As EMS was tending to him, his groceries were stolen. Koryciak said after talking to the man she realized he was on a fixed budget and didn’t have money to buy another round of groceries.
Russia and Saudi Arabia will ask OPEC to hike production by 1.5 million barrels a day in the third quarter of 2018, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Saturday. OPEC and Russia decided together in 2016 to cut their supply in order to push prices up following a crash induced by a global crude production glut. An oil production shortfall in Iran and Venezuela has changed the scenario for the two countries and members of the oil cartel.
The Trump Administration has been better than its predecessors when it comes to Asia. The United States Commerce Department has granted Chinese telecom company, ZTE, a reprieve from a seven-year ban on using U.S.-made parts—a bad that was effectively a corporate death sentence. This is going to hurt ZTE—and China’s Communist Party (CCP).
Wankel’s return should come in a muscular sports coupe. If there’s any Mazda that we would really love to see back in production, it would be the RX series and its famed rotary engine. It’s more likely to comeback as RX-9, a successor to the RX-7 and

Special counsel Robert Mueller is examining a previously undisclosed meeting between longtime Donald Trump confidante Roger Stone and a Russian figure who allegedly tried to sell him dirt on Hillary Clinton. The meeting between Stone and a man who identified himself as Henry Greenberg was described in a pair of letters sent Friday to the House Intelligence Committee and first reported by The Washington Post. Stone and Michael Caputo, a Trump campaign aide who arranged the 2016 meeting, did not disclose the contact in their interviews with the committee.
