The changes have affected the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in the United States and around the world and aroused criticism at home and abroad. REFUGEESThe Trump administration cut the U.S. refugee program to its lowest level since it began in 1980. The United States said it would accept just 15,000 refugees in the 2021 fiscal year, which began in October. DACA protects immigrants, popularly known as “Dreamers,” who were brought to the United States as children but lack legal status. The incoming Biden administration said it would create a task force to try to reunite hundreds of families still separated.

Georgia Democratic Senate candidates Raphael Warnock, left, and Jon Ossoff hold a campaign rally in Marietta on Nov. 15, 2020. Trump announced Rex Tillerson as his nominee 36 days after Election Day, and Obama named Hillary Clinton 28 days after Election Day. I have served on the Committee for 22 years, and I am its most senior member who does not currently serve atop another Senate Committee,” Durbin wrote in a statement. Senate Republican and House Democratic party rules do not allow a top member of leadership to also hold a committee chair.

The court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority including three justices appointed by Trump, is scheduled to hear an 80-minute oral argument by teleconference. The challengers argued that Trump is prohibited by the Constitution’s text from excluding illegal immigrants from the population count. The Supreme Court last year ruled 5-4 against Trump’s effort to add a citizenship question to the census. Trump’s administration would base its numbers on data gathered elsewhere.

REUTERS/Carlos Barria/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic President-elect Joe Biden is considering naming Tom Donilon, a veteran diplomat and national security adviser to former President Barack Obama, as director of the CIA, a person familiar with the situation said on Wednesday. Biden, who takes office on Jan. 20, is also said to be considering Michael Morell, who was the CIA’s deputy director and acting director of the agency twice under Obama. Biden, an integral part of Obama’s national security team during his eight years as vice president, would have worked closely with both men. He has already picked other Obama administration veterans for major national security posts, including Antony Blinken, a former deputy secretary of state, for secretary of state, and Avril Haines, a deputy at the CIA under Obama, to be director of national intelligence.

New Trump rule may require some African tourists to pay up to $15,000 in bonds

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The outgoing administration of U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday issued a new temporary rule that could require tourist and business travelers from two dozen countries, most in Africa, to pay a bond of as much as $15,000 to visit the United States. Trump, who lost a re-election bid earlier this month, made restricting immigration a central part of his four-year term in office. The visa bond rule will allow U.S. consular officers to require tourist and business travelers from countries whose nationals had an “overstay rate” of 10% or higher in 2019 to pay a refundable bond of $5,000, $10,000 or $15,000. Historically, U.S. consular officers have been discouraged from requiring travelers to the United States to post a bond, with State Department guidance saying processing of the bonds would be “cumbersome,” the temporary rule said. Countries whose tourist and business travelers could be subject to the bond requirement include those from Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Sudan, Chad, Angola, Burundi, Djibouti and Eritrea.

JUDGE TOSSES SUIT TO BLOCK BIDEN’S PENNSYLVANIA WINThe Trump campaign sued on Nov. 9 to prevent Biden, a Democrat, from being certified by election officials as the winner in Pennsylvania. The lawsuit said Republican observers were denied access to the counting of mail-in ballots, a claim election officials dispute, and alleged inconsistent treatment of mail-in ballots by county officials. Mark “Thor” Hearne, the Trump campaign lawyer who submitted the document, told Reuters the sanctions request was frivolous and an attempt to score political points. Trump legal adviser Jenna Ellis said on Saturday in a tweet that the campaign could “refile” the Michigan case if it needs to. Pennsylvania election officials have said there were about 10,000 late-arriving ballots, which were separated.

Thomas TolstrupFor Americans who have had a tough year financially amid Covid-19, a second set of $1,200 stimulus checks would provide some much welcome relief. In addition, the economists call stimulus checks an "essential tool" for preventing poverty from increasing more. They also cite research from the Urban Institute, which found that two additional stimulus checks could help keep about 14 million people out of poverty. The legislation included additional $1,200 stimulus checks. The proposal includes $1,200 stimulus checks, but with more generous terms than the first set.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - After a scathing court setback in Pennsylvania, President Donald Trump faces increased pressure from his fellow Republicans to drop his effort to overturn the U.S. presidential election and concede to Democrat Joe Biden. Republican Senator Pat Toomey said the ruling closed off any chance for a legal victory in Pennsylvania and called on Trump to concede the election. Critics say Trump’s refusal to concede have serious implications for national security and the fight against the coronavirus, which has killed nearly 255,000 Americans. In Wisconsin, election officials have criticized Trump volunteers for slowing a partial recount that is not expected to overturn Biden’s victory. On Friday, he summoned two top Republicans in Michigan’s legislature to the White House.

“Fight hard Republicans,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday morning as he pressed his unsubstantiated narrative of voter fraud. For Trump to have any hope of remaining in the White House, he needed to somehow overcome Biden’s 81,000-vote margin in Pennsylvania, a state he won in 2016. In Wisconsin, election officials have criticized Trump volunteers for slowing a partial recount that is not expected to overturn Biden’s victory. On Friday, he summoned two top Republicans in Michigan’s legislature to the White House. Half of Republicans believe the election was stolen from Trump, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling, and some supporters have staged rallies across the country to protest the outcome.

A federal judge earlier on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit filed by Trump’s campaign that sought to throw out millions of mail-in votes in Pennsylvania, dealing a major blow to its flailing efforts to overturn his Nov. 3 election loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden. In a statement, Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser to Trump’s 2020 campaign, said they hoped to take the case to the Third Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals.

U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, described the case as “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations.”Brann added that he “has no authority to take away the right to vote of even a single person, let alone millions of citizens.”Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“This claim, like Frankenstein’s Monster, has been haphazardly stitched together,” wrote Brann. The Trump campaign and its supporters have filed dozens of lawsuits in six closely contested states. In the Pennsylvania case, Brann also denied a campaign request to amend the suit to claim violations of the U.S. Constitution. Under Pennsylvania law, the candidate who wins the popular vote in the state gets all the state’s electoral votes. A presidential candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win the election, and Biden leads in the electoral vote count by 306-232.

The agreement, which U.S. President Donald Trump abandoned in May 2018 and restored related U.S. sanctions, sought to limit Iran’s nuclear program to prevent it from developing atomic weapons in return for the easing of economic sanctions. It did not, however, restrict Iran’s ballistic missile program nor Iranian support for militias in Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and Syria, which the United States regards as destabilizing to the Middle East and undercutting U.S. partners in the region.

The Trump administration has discussed these and other policy changes to lower drug prices over the past four years but has not made substantive progress. The Pharmaceutical Care Management Association, which represents pharmacy benefit managers that run the Medicare prescription drug plans targeted by the rebate rule, said it is exploring litigation.

(Reuters) - President Donald Trump will meet with Republican leaders from Michigan at the White House on Friday as his campaign pursues an increasingly desperate bid to overturn the Nov. 3 election result following a series of courtroom defeats. The Trump team is focusing on Michigan and Pennsylvania for now, but even if both those states flipped to the president he would need another state to overturn its vote to surpass Biden in the Electoral College. Shirkey told a Michigan news outlet earlier this week that the legislature would not appoint a second slate of electors. “It’s incredibly dangerous that they are even entertaining the conversation,” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, told MSNBC. Nationally, Biden won nearly 6 million more votes than Trump, a difference of 3.8 percentage points.

The nationalist governments of Hungary and Poland have refused to back the financial plan for the whole EU, even though they are beneficiaries, because the money is conditional on respecting the rule of law. “The talks should be continued and in the end we will come to an agreement, that’s how this usually goes,” Orban said.

One rule would require Medicare to tie the prices it pays for drugs to those paid by other countries. Medicare, which covers older Americans and those with disabilities, is currently prohibited from negotiating the prices it pays to drugmakers.
