WASHINGTON — Vice President Kamala Harris, after weeks of pressure from her political opponents, will visit the U.S.-Mexico border Friday, as part of her role addressing the root causes of migration. "[Harris' trip to the border] is really about building on the work that she has been doing. Republicans criticized Harris' decision to visit El Paso rather than other parts of the state like, the Rio Grande Valley, which see significantly more border crossings. Although partisan politics are likely to hang over Harris' trip Friday, she will also be forced to confront major policy issues. Rohini Kosoglu, domestic policy adviser to the vice president and one of Harris' longest serving aides, said that Harris "has spent her career fighting for immigrants."

President Biden tapped Ms. Harris to lead diplomatic efforts aimed at stemming the flow of migrants and to improve access in the U.S. to voting. People close to Ms. Harris acknowledge that she has made some high-profile missteps in her first few months, at times overshadowing what they see as her accomplishments. A spokeswoman for the vice president declined to comment. Asked in a television interview earlier this month why she hadn’t visited the border, Ms. Harris noted that she also hadn’t been to Europe. She added: “I’m not discounting the importance of the border.” Some said Ms. Harris appeared to equate the two places and minimize the seriousness of the border situation.

U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris delivers remarks at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. June 18, 2021. It will be Harris' first visit to the border since becoming vice president five months ago. "The Vice President's trip to Guatemala and Mexico earlier this year was about the root causes, and this border visit is about the effects," Harris' spokesperson, Symone Sanders, said. During the trip, Harris said she would visit the border in the near future but was focused on "tangible results" and "opposed to grand gestures." As such, they are unlikely to stop their criticism of Biden's policies, even if Harris visits the border.

"It makes no sense," said Ross, 34, adding that no witnesses have stepped forward in the “broad daylight” murder. Such tributes have become a common sight in the poorer neighborhoods of Rochester, a city of 206,000 people in the northwestern part of the state. The per-capita murder rate climbed 30 percent in 2020 among 34 major cities surveyed by Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri in St. Louis. Evans said the murder surge reflects rising problems with drug trafficking, criminal gangs and illegal firearms during the pandemic. The city’s police union, the Rochester Police Locust Club, said the department has only 12 investigators to pursue murder cases.

It is the fall of 2020, and the American National Theater is desperate to survive the pandemic. In Torrey Townsend’s blistering and hilarious satire “Off Broadway,” presented by Jeremy O. Harris and streaming free on Broadstream, this tenaciously middling nonprofit is millions of dollars in the red, and operating with only a skeleton crew. When it finally reopens, it will do so with a surefire smash: Al Pacino in “Othello,” playing the title role. Andy, the company’s staggeringly underqualified artistic director, doesn’t recognize this as regressing to a shameful and banished tradition. “Y’all are gonna get eaten alive,” Marla, his horrified associate producer, warns during a Zoom meeting, but no one pays the slightest heed.

The bill will likely be neutral for interest rates, but could lead to a push for a broader bill later this year that could push rates higher, said Jim Vogel, fixed income strategist at FHN Financial Capital Markets.

CHICAGO — Doug Emhoff said in his first one-on-one interview as second gentleman that Vice President Kamala Harris has likely been treated differently because she is a woman of color and defended Harris from Republican criticism on her role addressing the root causes of migration. Emhoff shrugged off suggestions that Harris' decision to go to the border now was motivated in part by the former president. "I'm only in this role because the country elected the first woman vice president and that happens to be my wife, Kamala Harris. "Kamala Harris has had a long history with the Jewish community, not just because she married me. As for whether he and Harris have discussed a second presidential run, Emhoff said they are "not talking about that."

Managing Joe Manchin: How Chuck Schumer Tries to Keep Democrats United
  + stars: | 2021-06-24 | by ( Lindsay Wise | Eliza Collins | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -0.97   time to read: +1 min
WASHINGTON—Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York liberal, and Sen. Joe Manchin, the pivotal West Virginia centrist, have long been a prominent odd couple on Capitol Hill. But there are limits to what friendship can achieve in a Senate where each party has 50 seats and Vice President Kamala Harris has a tiebreaking vote. The interplay between the two men was on display when Mr. Schumer scheduled a vote to open debate on the Democrats’ sweeping elections bill. The bill itself was almost certain to fail, given it would require 60 votes—at least 10 from Republicans—to pass, and no Republican had signaled support. But Mr. Schumer wanted to proceed anyway to show that Democrats were united behind it and that its failure would be at Republican hands.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Joe Biden will meet with a bipartisan group of U.S. senators on Thursday to discuss their proposed framework for an infrastructure bill as he looks to push a large-scale spending package through Congress despite Republican opposition. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/FilesMembers of the group of 21 senators, or “G-21,” announced an agreement on a framework on Wednesday after a meeting with White House officials. The G-21 talks have focused on a $1.2 trillion, eight-year spending plan, with a mix of new and repurposed funding. The White House opened talks with the group after the Democratic president broke off negotiations with Republican Senator Shelley Capito. That measure would be brought up under special Senate rules for budget bills that would allow it to pass without any Republican support.

They also leave little doubt that he had come under enormous pressure to help obscure the connections to Akie Abe, the wife of Japan’s longest-serving prime minister, in a land transaction involving right-wing supporters. Under that deal, an elementary school where Ms. Abe was an honorary principal purchased public land at an unusually low price. It could also complicate the political future and tarnish the legacy of Mr. Abe, who resigned last year because of ill health but is rumored to be eyeing a return to power. While the dossier’s release seems unlikely to have major political consequences for Mr. Suga — who was Mr. Abe’s chief cabinet secretary and handpicked successor — or Mr. Aso, it is a reminder that the “scandals never really were closed. They fizzled out because attention moved elsewhere,” said Tobias Harris, a Japan expert at the Center for American Progress who has written a book about Mr. Abe.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaWASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - President Joe Biden heads to North Carolina on Thursday to encourage people to get their COVID-19 vaccinations as the rate of inoculations slows despite a nationwide effort to get shots in arms to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Sixteen states and the District of Columbia have reached Biden’s goal, but the country as a whole and several other states continue to lag, including North Carolina. Only 55% of the southern state's adult population has had at least one shot despite a slew of incentives, including a $1 million lottery, according to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. The trip to North Carolina, Biden's first since he took office in January, is one of a series of COVID-related events on Thursday, including a press call by Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff and U.S. First Lady Jill Biden and Fauci are in Florida to visit vaccine sites, including a drive-through site and one at a hockey arena.

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration is in the later stages of planning how to phase out a Trump-era public health rule that has allowed border agents to rapidly turn away most migrants who have arrived at the southern border during the pandemic, according to two administration officials. It is possible that in the coming weeks, border officials could start allowing migrant families back into the country, with an eye toward lifting the rule for single adults this summer. Since the beginning of the pandemic, border agents have turned away migrants nearly 850,000 times under the public health rule, known as Title 42, which immigration and human rights advocates call unnecessary and cruel, particularly for those seeking asylum. Migrant families have been turned away more than 80,000 times since the rule was put in place in March 2020, according to government data. An agency spokeswoman referred questions about the rule to the White House.
