  • Also, Trump is talking about birthright citizenship again. [Reuters]
  • Also, Trump apparently wants background checks for gun purchases... again. [Politico]
  • Bernie Sanders announced a plan to overhaul America’s labor laws. [Bloomberg]
  • Everything is on fire. [USA Today]
  • North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper vetoed a bill that would require law enforcement to work closely with ICE and DHS. [CNN]
