    Woman with gun arrested outside of White House

    A woman with a gun was arrested Thursday night outside of the White House, officials said, just minutes after the President delivered his speech on sweeping immigration changes he’ll make by executive order. The Secret Service arrested April Lenhart, a 23-year-old Michigan resident, at about 8:30 p.m. on Thursday on Pennsylvania Avenue near the North Lawn of the White House after she was spotted with a gun holstered under her shirt, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. The incident occurred […]

    Obama announces immigration action

    President Barack Obama is ordering the most sweeping overhaul of the immigration system in decades, despite Republican claims he is overstepping his power by unilaterally moving to shield five million undocumented immigrants and prioritizing the deportation of “felons, not families.” Obama rejected accusations by conservatives that he is offering a free pass to undocumented immigrants and argued in a prime-time address that “the real amnesty” would be leaving a broken system as it is now. “Today our immigration system is […]

  • Undocumented immigrants in Chicago speak out ahead of Obama’s speech

    President Obama plans to detail what executive actions he will take in a televised address to the nation tonight. The president is widely expected to provide at least temporary relief to some of the 12 million immigrants who are in the country illegally. Some Republicans worry the president’s actions could spark civil disobedience or even violence and they accuse the president of ruining chances for comprehensive reform. Some undocumented immigrants in the Chicago area are relieved to learn President Obama […]

    Working on the holidays? You’re not alone

    Even if you don’t love spending all that much time with your family over the holidays, chances are you don’t want to spend that time working instead. Yet 45% of employed Americans said there’s “at least some chance” they will work on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s. And one in four said they have to clock in whether they want to or not, according to an Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll. Chances are good, of course, that many of those […]

    Bill Cosby on sexual assault allegations: ‘I don’t talk about it’

    “I have to ask about your name coming up in the news recently regarding this comedian–” “No, no, we don’t answer that.” Bill Cosby dismissed the question about sexual assault allegations before the Associated Press reporter even finished asking it. Afterward, Cosby pressured the reporter not to let the public see or hear his answer at all. That was on November 6. The AP, the world’s largest news organization, didn’t publish the video right away. But as the allegations against […]

  • The legal battle over Obama’s immigration plan

    President Barack Obama’s plan to take the immigration system in his own hands is a daring test of the limits of presidential power. The steps he will lay out tonight in a prime time address will fuel a debate over his use of executive authority to enact change without the agreement of an opposition Congress. Conservatives are howling that Obama’s effort to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation oversteps his own authority and infringes the Constitution. His backers say […]

    At least 8 killed in massive snowstorm, Buffalo braces for up to 3 feet more

    Enough already. Shivering under up to 6 feet of snow in its hardest-hit sections, Buffalo, New York, may see another 3 feet Thursday. If the forecast holds, that’s more than a year’s worth of snow in just three days. In a typical year, Buffalo’s snowfall totals about 7 feet, according to the National Weather Service. Get the drift? Piled high and deep, the snow is a nightmare for south Buffalo residents Donna and Sean Yager. It took them four to […]
