Conservative House members say they got a promise from leadership to pursue a separate hard-line Republican-only immigration bill in exchange for their votes to pass government funding Thursday night -- a measure that several Republicans doubt could pass the House, let alone the Senate.
The Justice Department formally asked the Supreme Court Thursday night to review a federal judge's ruling from last week that blocked the Trump administration's effort to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
As votes for government funding look perilous in Congress, bipartisan senators behind an immigration deal are furiously working behind the scenes to build support for their bill, hoping it could be in play to avert a shutdown.
Following a Golden Globes that made headlines with its Time's Up theme, the Screen Actors Guild is leaning into that discussion with its annual presentation Sunday. Yet with several more star-studded ceremonies to come, questions linger as to how well Hollywood's awards apparatus can juggle serving as a rallying point for that movement with its more prosaic, self-congratulatory business.
