Hundreds of immigrant children have reportedly been reunited with their families. An ICE memo claims 500 children have been given back to their parents. This amount makes up for 15-percent of the children separated at the border.        Politicians are pushing for bipartisanship at the Texas-Mexico border. U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz hope their Democrat colleagues will sign a bill keeping the families of illegal immigrants together while in federal custody. Today, Cruz and Cornyn visited shelters and say the kids are being treated humanely.       A man in Kansas City is being charged with capital murder after fatally shooting two sheriff's deputies. Antoine Fielder could get the death penalty in the case, according to Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree. Fielder overpowered Deputies Patrick Rohrer and Theresa King last week. Police believe he stole one of the deputies' firearm while being transported to a hearing.        The European Union is preparing to impose new taxes on a wide range of American products. The EU's response to President Trump's tariffs on foreign-made steel and aluminum sold in the U.S. is aimed at such only-from-America products as Harley-Davidson motorcycles, peanut butter, and Kentucky bourbon. EU nations say the U.S. tariffs violate global trade rules.        A big package of opioids bills is on its way to the Senate after getting through the House. The effort aims to curb the growing opioid crisis in the U.S., a crisis that has hit every state. The House package was approved overwhelmingly, 396-14.        The second round of nominations for the Teen Choice Awards has been unveiled. Singers Cardi B and Selena Gomez each picked up four today, while the TV drama "Riverdale" collected seven. Multiple nods also went to films "The Greatest Showman," "Black Panther" and "Solo: A Star Wars Story," as well as television's "Stranger Things" and "The Bold Type."
