“The Senate is voting on a sweeping election reform bill. Democrats say it would protect voting rights. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says, “It’s a vote on whether the Senate should simply debate the issue of voting rights, the crucial issue of voting rights in this country.” But Republicans say it would be federal overreach. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell counters by saying: “They’ve made it abundantly clear that the real driving force behind S. 1 is a desire to rig the rules of American elections permanently—permanently in Democrats’ favor.” It’s unlikely to get the 10 Republican votes it needs to move forward.

Debates around the border crisis continue. Over 50 House Republicans are calling on President Joe Biden to replace Vice President Kamala Harris as “border czar.” They noted Harris hasn’t yet visited the border amid a surge in illegal immigration. They also cited recent Customs and Border Protection data that shows that 180,000 people were apprehended last month after crossing the border illegally.”

“A federal judge in Louisiana on Friday blocked the Biden administration from lifting a public health order that immigration officers have used to quickly expel migrants at the southwest border, including asylum-seekers.

District Judge Robert R. Summerhays, a Trump appointee in Lafayette, ruled that the Biden administration violated administrative law when it announced in April that it planned to halt Title 42, a health order aimed at preventing the spread of communicable diseases in the country, on Monday.

The ruling will most likely spark a monthslong legal battle. The U.S. Department Justice quickly filed an appeal Friday with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and said it believes that the Biden administration’s decision to lift 42 was legal.”

“EL PASO — A text from Border Patrol Sector Chief Gloria Chavez lit up El Paso County Judge Ricardo Samaniego’s cell phone at 5:53 a.m. on Sunday.

She delivered the news: Border Patrol’s Central Processing Center in El Paso was massively overcrowded. To relieve the strain, more than 100 asylum seekers were released Downtown, and they were on their own.

It was a relatively small group, given that Border Patrol had been taking in more than 1,000 people a day. There were people from Haiti, Ecuador and Turkey; all had legal documents and U.S. destinations in mind and quickly scattered in taxis and ride-shares.”

According to this article on Associated Press, by NICHOLAS RICCARDI

“President Joe Biden’s approval rating dipped to the lowest point of his presidency in May, a new poll shows, with deepening pessimism emerging among members of his own Democratic Party.

Only 39% of U.S. adults approve of Biden’s performance as president, according to the poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research, dipping from already negative ratings a month earlier.

Overall, only about 2 in 10 adults say the U.S. is heading in the right direction or the economy is good, both down from about 3 in 10 a month earlier. Those drops were concentrated among Democrats, with just 33% within the president’s party saying the country is headed in the right direction, down from 49% in April.”
