Judges Block Trump’s New Order Banning Muslims and Refugees – Two federal judges have hit hard against President Trump’s latest ban targeting refugees and Muslims, issuing a block just hours before the executive order was set to go into effect.

In this report, Dina Siegel Van of the American Jewish Committee in Washington celebrates the legal decision, while Trump condemns the judges.

In this report, Ruben Tapia describes the citizens’ campaign against guns in schools that began last December and continues today.
