President Donald Trump’s administration is revising a former President Barack Obama-era rule on methane emissions to help make the U.S. energy dependent while helping people in rural parts of the country retain jobs. “In order to achieve energy dominance through responsible energy production, we need smart regulations, not punitive regulations,” Joe Balash, assistant secretary for land and minerals management, said in a statement following Trump’s move to revise the controversial rule. “We believe this proposed rule strikes that balance and will allow job growth in rural America,” said Balash, an official inside the Interior Department.

Howell of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia granted the order Monday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from CNN.

A federal judge in New York ruled Tuesday that the government must fully restart the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty and accept brand new applicants as well as renewals, throwing a potential wrench in the ongoing debate over the fate of “Dreamers” on Capitol Hill. Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis said the administration does have the power to revoke DACA, but it must give a sound reason for doing so — and the Homeland Security Department’s September 2017 rationale fell far short of what is required in that regard. He even used Mr. Trump’s own tweets as evidence that the DACA program was ended

Brooklyn federal-court Judge Frederic Block on Monday angrily ordered developer Gerald Wolkoff — who erased about 45 works overnight in the middle of both sides’ court case in 2013 — to cough up the millions. “The shame of it all is that since 5 Pointz was a prominent tourist attraction, the public would undoubtedly have thronged to say its goodbyes during those 10 months and gaze at the formidable works of aerosol art for the

What was supposed to be an open-ended debate on immigration reform stalled on Tuesday when Democrats objected to the Republican´s first amendment, which would punish so-called sanctuary cities. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., blocked a request by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to start by debating the sanctuary city language. Without Schumer´s consent, the debate cannot begin until either late tonight or tomorrow morning. The amendment mirrors legislation written by Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., that would withhold certain federal funds from jurisdictions that do not cooperate with federal immigration officials when it comes to illegal immigrants. Schumer argued Tuesday that the Toomey

There are at least two instances where Kehinde Wiley, 41, has painted portraits of black women holding a knife in one hand and the decapitated head of a white woman in the other.
