More States Sue over New Immigration Rule
Connecticut, New York and Vermont filed federal lawsuits this week to contest Trump’s new immigration rule. The new policy denies green cards to legal immigrants who do (or are likely to) enroll in public assistance programs. This brings the total number of states that are challenging the new rules to 18.
These states claim that the new rules are illegal and go against America’s values. Here’s a brief cover of Letitia James’ speech addressing Trump’s plan to make our nation safer.
Generations of citizens landed on the welcoming shores of Ellis Island with nothing more than a dream in their pockets. The Trump administration’s thinly veiled efforts to only allow those who meet their narrow ethnic, racial and economic criteria to enter our nation is a clear violation of our laws and our values.
-Letitia James, New York Attorney General
The regulations are set to go into effect in October. But, multiple states are suing in hopes to start a nationwide injunction that would block the enforcement of this new rule until all existing cases are concluded.
US Space Command Launching Soon
Vice President Mike Pence announced earlier this week that the United States Space Command will be up and running by the end of the month.
Keep your eyes out for the formal announcement ceremony on August 29. The Space Command will be directed by Gen. John Raymond, the current commander of Air Force Space Command, and the new military branch will start off with 87 employees. The Air Force and Space Command will work together while remaining separate entities.

The Space Force military branch is waiting on approval for Congress for funding. Pence said he hopes to have it fully established by 2020.
Harry Reid Calls Out Medicare for All
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) showed a shockingly rare display of common sense. He said that Medicare for All is problematic for Dems in the 2020 election during an interview. Reid suggests that, instead of socializing healthcare, Dems should improve the current system.
I think that we should focus on improving Obamacare. We can do that — without bringing something that would be much harder to sell. Improving Obamacare, people understand that. They would appreciate that. It locks in many important things.
Reid understands the dangers of radical reformation… at least when it comes to healthcare. He also mentioned decriminalizing border crossings during the interview. It’s as if Reid is partially on the right track, but keeps veering off the road thanks to the dangers of Liberalism.
Harry Reid: "People want a fair immigration system. They don’t want an open-door invitation for everybody to come at once." https://t.co/iv621cg1B1
