Rep. Keith Ellison, of Minnesota, took over as lead sponsor of the bill by former Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., who retired amid charges of sexual harassment.
As tensions between the U.S. and North Korea continue to escalate, President Trump’s tough rhetoric and warnings have only increased. Trump declared North Korea a state sponsor of terror towards the end of 2017. His attitude towards North Korea and Kim Jong Un have only become more aggressive, as he has called their leader "Rocket Man", referring to the nuclear crisis. Trump initially was supportive of he and Kim Jong Un's relationship and the relationship between the two countries. They have also planned a meeting for late spring. Trump explained how they have made effort and progress in talks with North Korea. Later, however, Trump transitions into saying how he probably has a good relationship with North Korea which does not sound too convincing. Kim Jong Un also warned how the button for nuclear war is on his table, and the US is within their reach. The relationship between our two countries will most likely continue to fluctuate throughout the coming years. There were many points made from both angles, for and against relations with North Korea, so I do not think there is too much bias in this article. This article is an example of a presidential power of the president because Trump is recognizing North Korea (foreign country) and they are in the process of coming together to meet and discuss different policies which will hopefully lead to mutual agreements.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday unloaded on California Democrats who push a “radical, open borders agenda,” as his Justice Department sued the state over its immigration policies. Sessions is pushing for a lawful immigration system, one that does not reward illegal immigrants with social security, welfare, and permits. He described open borders policies as "a radical, irrational idea that cannot be accepted". Sessions continued by accusing California of passing laws that were unconstitutional as well as a violation of federal law and common sense. The laws hurt Californians as well as the law enforcement. Democrats have been pushing back against the forces trying to get rid of sanctuary cities (illegal immigrant safe areas). Another Democrat remarked that the Trump administration was "abusing the legal system to push his mass deportation agenda". This article is strongly advocating for illegal immigration to be halted immediately and to knock down anything that gets in the way. This article explains the executive branch's limits through the refusal of some officials in California to cooperate with federal authorities in immigrant sanctuary cities. The president was also accused of installing unconstitutional programs to eradicate illegal immigrants.
President Trump told a Latino group Wednesday he is “ready, willing and able” to strike a deal with Congress over the illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, but said “Democrats are nowhere to be found". Back in September, Trump said he was ending DACA, but gave Congress time to come up with a better solution, and the time continues to get extended. With the installment of DACA, Obama was accused of exceeding his "constitutional authority trough the executive order". Trump continues to wait for the Democrats to come to the table, so that they can figure out a reformed solution and come to an agreement. There have been several proposals from the Senate, but so far none of them have received enough support to be put into action. There does not seem to be too much bias in this article, however, it only explains the perspective of Trump and the Republicans. There was little mention of the Democrats or why they are "nowhere to be found". This relates to the governments limits because a bill cannot be passed if it does gain enough support through the public and through Congress. The DACA program cannot be further discussed without cooperation from all parties involved.
