Miami Superintendent: ‘Over My Dead Body’ Will ICE Enforce On School Grounds

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami-Dade School District took up the immigration debate Wednesday.

The district reports undocumented students are worried sick for themselves and their parents. And the school board issued what is essentially a “stay away” order to federal agents.

“Our people didn’t come to harm this country. They came here so their children could have a better future,” 10-year-old Jasmine Coach told Miami- Dade school board members Wednesday to a standing ovation.

Rachel Maddow’s Tax Return Show Attracts 4 Million Viewers, Her Biggest Audience

Tuesday evening’s episode of The Rachel Maddow Show, in which the eponymous host and Daily Beast contributor David Cay Johnston revealed President Trump’s 2005 tax returns, scored huge ratings, beating out all other cable-news competitors. According to Nielsen data, the show raked in 4.1 million viewers, beating out Fox News (which normally wins the cable-news set for the 9 p.m. hour), CNN, and the rest of all cable television. Additionally, that viewership figure was enough to beat out even ABC and Fox broadcast-network ratings during the 9 p.m. ET hour. This was the highest-rated program ever for The Rachel Maddow Show in both total viewership and the key ages 25-54 demographic. Maddow teased this particular evening’s show with a tweet—“BREAKING: We’ve got Trump’s tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously.)”—and was widely mocked for how long it took the host to finally reveal what many ultimately viewed to be a lackluster scoop on the president’s old tax returns

Tillerson says diplomacy with North Korea has ‘failed’; Pyongyang warns of war

TOKYO — The Trump administration made a clear break Thursday with diplomatic efforts to talk North Korea out of a nuclear confrontation, bringing the United States and its Asian allies closer to a military response than at any point in more than a decade.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that 20 years of trying to persuade North Korea to abandon its nuclear program had failed and that he was visiting Asia “to exchange views on a new approach.”

Ryan Clings to Core of GOP Health Bill as Opposition Mounts

House Speaker Paul Ryan has told senior Republicans that he won’t change the main pillars of his plan to repeal and partially replace Obamacare, even as Republicans search for tweaks that can break their logjam over the legislation.

With a steady trickle of Republicans coming out against the bill, Ryan is sending the message he won’t drop any of its four main elements — refundable tax credits, health savings accounts, the phaseout of Medicaid expansion and the ban on insurers denying coverage over pre-existing conditions — according to a senior Republican aide.

GCHQ denies helping Obama spy on Trump

One of Britain’s leading spy agencies has angrily denied claims – suggested by the White House press secretary – that it helped former president Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump.

In a very rare public statement, a spokesman for GCHQ told ITV News that any suggestion it was involved in spying on Mr Trump “was utterly ridiculous and should be ignored”.

The strongly-worded denial came shortly after Sean Spicer repeated an unsubstantiated and explosive allegation – first made by a Fox News analyst – that Barack Obama used British spies to watch Donald Trump on his behalf to ensure “there were no American fingerprints on it”.

Obamacare replacement bill passes Budget Committee by one vote

The much-criticized Obamacare replacement bill passed the House Budget Committee on Thursday with one vote to spare, as three conservative Republicans broke ranks to vote against Paul Ryan’s health care proposal.

Reps. Mark Sanford of South Carolina, Dave Brat of Virginia and Gary Palmer of Alabama voted against the legislation. Combined with unified Democratic opposition, the bill was reported favorably by a vote of 19-17.

In Trump era, some Mexican migrants head north – to Canada

Shortly after crossing the Rio Grande into the gang-infested border city of Reynosa, dozens of Mexicans deported during U.S President Donald Trump’s first days in office said they would soon try to head north again – but this time to Canada.

In a Reynosa migrant shelter, just yards from the U.S. border, 26-year-old Cenobio Rita said he had earned about $3,000 a month installing playgrounds in Richmond, Virginia, before he was deported on Feb. 15 after police found marijuana in his car.

The Republicans Relearn Politics The health-care bill is far from dead, and a contentious debate is a sign of vigor

With a hat-tip to Mark Twain, reports of the death of the Republican health-care bill have been greatly, vastly, even bigly exaggerated. What we are witnessing isn’t a legislative demise, but the rebirth of a long-lost Washington concept: politics.

From the moment Speaker Paul Ryan unveiled his ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill, the media have declared it a doomed project. The newspapers have run out of synonyms for division, disunity, discord, conflict, struggle, mess. Since the only thing the media enjoy more than bashing Republicans is helping Republicans bash each other, the cable stations have offered a nonstop loop of a handful of GOP naysayers and grandstanders (cue Rand Paul) who wish the bill ill.

A NASA-led research campaign called SnowEx kicked off in Colorado in February. The five-year study will advance global measurements of how much snow is on the ground at any given time and how much liquid water is contained in that snow.

Sessions’ Russian controversy continues to boil over

Earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal announced that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had been in contact with Russia’s ambassador during the 2016 presidential campaign.
