British tourists, other foreigners not allowed to take tours at Trump White House, officials say

White House tours exclude foereignersThe Trump White House is open to visitors — just not all of them.

Visitors from England and other foreign nations don't seem to be eligible right now to get a glance at President Trump's new home in Washington.

Earlier this week the Trump administration opened up the White House for tours for the first time since the inauguration, and noted that citizens of foreign countries should contact their embassies "for assistance" if they want to visit.


Man facing deportation gets extension after clergy support

Clergy supports deporteeA man who entered the U.S. illegally more than 25 years ago received a 60-day extension Friday to seek a stay of deportation after several dozen members of the clergy and a U.S. senator showed their support by marching to a federal building in Newark, New Jersey.

San Francisco Asks Federal Judge to Block Trump’s Order on Sanctuary Cities

SF challenges ban on sanctuary citiesSan Francisco has asked a federal judge to block President Trump’s order threatening to deny federal funding to sanctuary cities that don’t actively pursue undocumented immigrants. City authorities on Wednesday asked U.S. District Judge William H. Orrick for a preliminary injunction against the president’s executive order until a lawsuit against it can be heard.

The city’s motion argued that Trump’s order infringes on the sovereignty of cities and exceeds the president’s authority. City Attorney Dennis Herrera described Trump as a “bully” for threatening to withhold federal funding for public aid programs.

windstormsHundreds of thousands of people were without power Thursday after windstorms struck cities around Lake Erie.

The weather across the area Wednesday was sunny but winds of more than 60 mph caused damage across Michigan. Around 1 million people in the state lost power, at least temporarily. Three thousand power lines fell in southeastern Michigan, where a thus-far mild winter has created softer ground, leading to the uprooting of trees. More than 875,000 electricity customers statewide were without power Thursday morning.

Attorneys for the state said in court filings they will request in a motion Wednesday that a federal judge issue a temporary restraining order blocking the president's new travel ban, CNN reported.

"To be sure, the new executive order covers fewer people than the old one," Neal Katyal, one of the state's lead attorneys, said in an interview with CNN.
