House votes to provide a pathway to citizenship for thousands of undocumented farmworkers

  • Washington (CNN) - The House passed a bipartisan bill Wednesday that would grant legal status to thousands of undocumented farmworkers.
  • While previous legislative efforts seeking to legalize a larger number of undocumented immigrants have failed, Wednesday's vote is significant both for what it tries to achieve and for the Republican support it received.
  • The measure would provide a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants working in agriculture, reforms a temporary agricultural program used by employers and requires companies to verify whether workers are in the United States legally through a federal system.
  • Since taking the House majority, Democrats have tried to push through legislation to address the undocumented population in the United States, but to little success in the Senate.
  • In June, for example, the House passed a bill that would provide a pathway to citizenship for more than one million undocumented immigrants.

Key paragraph in articles of impeachment against Trump regarding 2020 - Business Insider

  • The House introduced two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump Tuesday focusing on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
  • The Constitution extends the consequences of impeachment as far as unseating and indicting an official, but a vote to impeach does not prevent them from running for office in the future.
  • This paragraph is significant for two reasons, as pointed out by The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
  • The process of impeachment takes a simple majority in the House of Representatives.
  • The process then moves to the Senate, which holds a trial.
  • The Senate then votes whether to remove a president from office, which requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate.
  • Disqualification from running for office would then take a second vote in the Senate — one that only requires a majority to pass, according to The Journal.

Why Time picking Greta Thunberg will drive Donald Trump crazy

  • Thunberg was chosen among a group that included the Hong Kong protesters, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump.
  • Start here: Trump has long had an obsession with Time's person of the year -- dating back long before he was President.
  • And then there's this: Fake 2009 Time covers showing Trump as person of the year were found hanging in at least five of his golf clubs.
  • The covers showed a cross-armed Trump and these words: "Donald Trump: The 'Apprentice' is a television smash!" Good times.
  • Which brings us to Thunberg, who rose to fame when she began what she called "climate strikes" in her native Sweden to protest the lack of action by governments around the world to address the threat posed by climate change.
  • So the combination of being passed over (again!!) and Thunberg being Time's pick will annoy Trump.

Greta Thunberg labeled a 'brat' by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro

  • The Guajarara tribe, who work to protect the rainforest, has been threatened by loggers who experts say have taken advantage of reduced controls and less oversight to seize control of forest lands.
  • The 16-year-old is currently in Madrid for the COP25 summit -- which could make or break the world's climate commitments.
  • Around 25,000 people from 200 countries were expected to attend.
  • On Wednesday she told the conference that countries need to implement drastic emission cuts instead of finding loopholes to avoid taking real action.
  • It's not the first time that she has changed her Twitter bio in a tongue-in-cheek move, after she also updated it when US President Donald Trump mocked her.

Progressives slam Democrats for announcing their new trade deal with Trump an hour after they said they're bringing articles of impeachment

  • By 10 am, Speaker Nancy Pelosi had both unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump and announced that Democrats had reached an agreement with the president on a replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement.
  • But the mood was almost jubilant an hour later when Pelosi praised the White House-led United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which she said Democrats take "great pride in." Democrats touted their efforts in securing various environmental and labor regulations in the deal, which Mexico and Canada are both expected to sign in the coming days.
  • And US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, who has led the USMCA negotiations, wanted to finalize the NAFTA replacement before Congress goes on recess and while Democrats and Republicans remain on the same page.
