Digest

President Biden announced new executive actions on immigration, including limiting asylum seekers and temporarily closing the border to migrants crossing illegally when asylum numbers hit more than 2,500 along the border in between legal ports of entry. The president stated that he had no choice but to take executive action because Republicans in Congress rejected a bipartisan border deal. The new policy will be triggered when the daily average of migrant apprehensions exceeds 2,500 for the week, and administration officials confirmed that this threshold has already been passed. Meanwhile, millions of AT&T customers across the US reported cell phone outages, affecting calls to other networks in major cities like New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Pittsburgh, and Indianapolis. AT&T confirmed a nationwide issue affecting call completion between carriers, but stated that 911 calls are operating normally. The FCC is investigating the issue, which follows a similar incident in February where AT&T customers lost cell service for hours, including emergency services. The news also covered a life-threatening heat wave affecting multiple states from California to Texas, with triple-digit temperatures and potential tornadoes from Mississippi to Minnesota. In New York City, two young girls were shot and wounded on a playground, while Attorney General Merrick Garland defended the Justice Department from allegations of political bias. The first witness took the stand in Hunter Biden's federal gun trial, with the prosecution entering Hunter Biden's laptop as evidence. The news also covered the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, with President Biden expressing concerns about Prime Minister Netanyahu's handling of the conflict. In other news, the New York Stock Exchange canceled trades made during a technical glitch that saw dozens of stocks listed at incorrect prices. A tourist was gored by a bison at Yellowstone National Park, and a Major League Baseball player was banned for life for betting on games. In New York City, a couple magnet fishing pulled up a safe containing about $100,000 in waterlogged bills. Disney CEO Bob Iger was presented with the title, Honorary Knight of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, by Prince William at Windsor Castle. Finally, the news featured a newborn baby's photo shoot that went viral due to the baby's grumpy expression.
