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."

Patients with lingering Covid-19 symptoms should wait even longer, the study suggested. Some experts said seven weeks is too arbitrary a threshold for scheduling surgery for patients who have had Covid-19. The operation to be performed, patients’ medical conditions and the risk of delaying surgery should all be factored in. Oregon Health and Sciences University clinicians developed a protocol a year ago for clearing any patient who had Covid-19 for elective surgery. If the assessment raises no red flags, patients can be cleared for surgery once they have waited the minimum seven weeks since their Covid-19 diagnosis.

Live Covid-19 Live Updates: More U.S. States Try Lotteries to Tackle Vaccine Hesitancy Louisiana, where the inoculation rate has lagged significantly behind the national average, is among the latest to dangle cash prizes and scholarships in return for getting a shot. Six of the bottom eight states are in the South: They include Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and Tennessee. The Biden administration has made a concerted push to overcome vaccine hesitancy, particularly in the South. In some states, he said, the lotteries coincided with making the vaccine available to teenagers, which could skew the numbers. He suggested comparing the vaccination rates in states with lotteries to those without them.

While the goods trade deficit widened last month, that was because of an increase in imports as businesses desperately try to keep up with robust demand. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell 7,000 to a seasonally adjusted 411,000 for the week ended June 19, the Labor Department said. STRONG GROWTHFederal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told lawmakers on Tuesday that he believed the economy would see strong job creation in the fall. Strong demand and tight supply are forcing businesses to turn to imports, boosting the trade deficit. In a third report, the Commerce Department said the goods trade deficit increased 2.8% to $88.1 billion in May.

Failed attempts to pass marriage equality measures in 2007 and 2009, however, left supporters deflated. Andrew Cuomo was sworn into office in January after making same-sex marriage a key plank in his campaign. “We had the opposite of momentum,” said Brian Ellner, who left then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office in 2011 to help lead New Yorkers for Marriage Equality. During the race, Marchione questioned McDonald’s conservative bona fides, claiming he backed same-sex marriage to secure campaign donations. That May, then-Vice President Joe Biden came out in favor of same-sex marriage, quickly followed by President Barack Obama.

Regional parcel carriers are expanding their reach as surging e-commerce demand fills up capacity at the national carriers and retailers seek fast, cheaper ways to ship packages to customers’ homes. LSO, which serves Texas and Oklahoma, is planning a five-state expansion in early September to provide e-commerce and ground parcel delivery in Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois and Kansas. PREVIEWLSO says shippers have been urging the company to extend its geographic coverage since e-commerce volumes surged during pandemic lockdowns. “Now supply is starting to increase because more carriers are coming into the market,” she said. “The market is so big and it’s grown so much, their growth doesn’t take away market share from UPS, FedEx and the Postal Service,” Mr. Jindel said.

REUTERS/Shannon StapletonWASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - An Illinois man on Thursday became the first person charged for attacking journalists during the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of then-President Donald Trump. Attorney General Merrick Garland touted the arrest in a statement on Thursday, noting that the department has now arrested 500 people who took part in the violence, including 100 who are facing charges for attacking police, he noted. The violence left five dead, including a Capitol Police officer. "The manner of attack on the cameraman was very similar to the attack" on the U.S. Capitol Police officer, the complaint said.

U.S. Democrats launch bill allowing existing nuclear plants tax credit

Kevin Dietsch/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoWASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - Five Democrats in the U.S. Senate introduced a bill on Thursday that would allow some existing nuclear power plants to receive a tax credit equal to an incentive already given to operators of wind power turbines. The bill, led by Senator Ben Cardin, provides a production tax credit of $15 per megawatt hour for existing nuclear plant owners or operators in states such as New York, Illinois, and Pennsylvania which have deregulated power markets. Nuclear reactors are virtually emissions-free, but have been struggling to compete with power generation fueled by natural gas, and wind and solar power. The bill, if passed by the Senate and House, could help President Joe Biden, who has also supported a production tax credit for nuclear plants, in his goal to put the country on a path to decarbonize the power grid by 2035. Exelon has said it will close two nuclear power plants in Illinois in coming months if the state does not come through with subsidies.

Celebrities like Jay Leno, who have long profited from jokes about Asian Americans, began to rethink past slights. Asian Americans have dealt with an undercurrent of racism for centuries, since Asian immigrants first arrived in the U.S. more than 150 years ago. “It is violence — especially for a group that has been de-racialized and basically whitened,” Nadia Kim, a professor of sociology and of Asian & Asian American studies, said. Research shows that suicide is the second-leading cause of death for Asian Americans aged 15-34. When looking at women of all racial backgrounds 65 to 84, Asian Americans had the highest suicide rate.

KKR exec Pete Stavros' dad was an hourly worker, inspiring him to research employee stock ownership. KKR's co-head of Americas private equity, Pete Stavros, is familiar with the challenges low-income hourly workers face. While it's not a "magic solution" to any problem, Stavros said, employee stock ownership "can be the foundation for culture-building." For KKR, the focus on employee stock ownership has proven to be a differentiator from other private equity firms. The nonprofit will conduct research on outcomes driven by employee stock ownership.

(CNN) R. Kelly has been moved from a detention center in Chicago to New York where he will likely stay ahead of his August federal trial as he adds another New York-based attorney to his legal team. Two sources familiar with the matter said Kelly arrived at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn Tuesday afternoon, and that he will likely stay there until his federal racketeering trial begins in August. CNN has reached out to the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York and to an attorney for Kelly for comment on the move. Kelly, a Chicago native, has been held at the MCC Chicago for much of the time since his arrest in 2019 on federal charges involving racketeering, sex trafficking and obstruction. He has been appearing by video conference for hearings during the pandemic.

Former and current Capitol Hill staffers told Insider cannabis use was fairly prevalent there. That was in 2011, and he never was tested during his more than three years on Capitol Hill. If anything, weed use among Capitol Hill staffers appears to have become more common as an increasing number of states legalize its use and attitudes change, several people said. Using it is not considered a big deal among Hill staffers as long as they're discreet. Two years after that, DC Marijuana Justice made headlines by handing out free joints to Capitol Hill staffers who presented their congressional IDs.

President Joe Biden was expected to give an update on Monday on whether the White House will accept a pared-down infrastructure bill negotiated by bipartisan group of lawmakers. If that happens, the sources said, the biofuels bills could be rolled into a massive spending bill with economic priorities Biden omitted from the infrastructure talks. Democrats and the White House hope the spending bill will pass along party lines this fall in a process called reconciliation. The U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard requires refiners to blend biofuels like ethanol into fuel or buy tradable credits from competitors who do. This would lower the amount of renewable fuel refiners must blend in the future and create a price cap on compliance credits.
