Obama Administration will take immigration fight to Supreme Court

Supreme courtThe Obama Administration will ask the Supreme Court to allow President Barack Obama to proceed with a round of executive actions to make it easier for millions of illegal immigrants to live and work in the U.S., the Justice Department said Tuesday.

A federal judge halted those moves in February and Monday night a federal appeals court refused to overturn that injunction. The White House was initially cagey about what the administration planned to do next, a decision that is technically made by Solicitor General Donald Verrilli.


Protesters for higher U.S. fast-food wages march in New York

Protesters in NYCU.S. fast-food workers kicked off a nationwide protest in New York on Tuesday backing higher wages and union rights in a campaign they hope will catch the attention of candidates in the 2016 elections.

A couple hundred protesters marched in downtown Brooklyn, blocking traffic and carrying banners reading "A living wage = quality care" and "On strike for work that sustains families." The protesters stopped to rally outside a McDonald's restaurant.

Half of surveyed oil train bridges are deteriorating, report says

railroad bridges deterioratingA survey of 250 oil train bridges across America found that almost half showed signs of considerable deterioration, including missing or crumbling concrete, partially washed-away footings, rotted pilings and badly corroded steel beams, according to a report to be released Tuesday.

Determining whether the problems found by three environmental groups pose a threat to public safety is almost impossible, however, because the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) rarely inspects the nation’s estimated 100,000 rail bridges, including some built more than 100 years ago. Instead the agency leaves that responsibility to the railroads, which don’t make their inspection records public.

Homelessness in Hawaii grows, defying image of paradise

Homeless in HawaiiHomelessness in Hawaii has grown in recent years, leaving the state with 487 homeless per 100,000 people, the nation's highest rate per capita, ahead of New York and Nevada, according to federal statistics.

Since 2010, the rise has come even as the national rate has fallen during the economic recovery. The increase, driven by years of rising costs in the island chain, low wages and limited land, thrust the image of people sleeping on beaches alongside the state's famed one of a relaxing tropical paradise.
