Hundreds of immigrant children are being reunited with their families. ICE released a memo saying 500 children have been given back to their parents. This number accounts for just 15-percent of the children separated at the border.       Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono says the Trump administration is sabotaging healthcare and immigration reform. In the weekly Democratic address, Hirono called for unity in the fight against the Trump administration.

The girl and her mother were reportedly not separated. The photo was captured while the mother was being searched by Border Patrol agents.       New charges are being filed against the man suspected of running over several people on a New York City bike path with a rental truck. A grand jury handed up a superseding indictment against Sayfullo Saipov, hitting him with six attempted murder charges.

Carpenter argued the information should be discarded in his case because there was no search warrant in place for the records.        Today is a great day to give your special someone a kiss.
