By Annika McGinnis WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday took another step toward authorizing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama, claiming he has overstepped his executive powers in carrying out his landmark healthcare reform law. In a partisan vote of 7-4, the House Rules Committee approved the legislation, likely setting it up for consideration by the full House next week. The Republican initiative already has spawned a bitter debate with Democrats less than four months before mid-term elections that will determine the political control of Congress next year. For example, House Speaker John Boehner wrote in June that Obama's use of executive orders, including raising the minimum wage for federal contractors and stopping deportations of undocumented youths brought to the United States by their parents, risked giving him a "king-like authority." But Boehner has tamped down calls from some fellow Republicans for impeachment proceedings against Obama, which would be a first step toward removing him from office.
Montana?s governor urged respect on Thursday for the courage shown by Democratic U.S. Senator John Walsh during his military service amid allegations he may have lifted parts of a master?s thesis from works by other authors. ?Senator Walsh has a long history of fighting for Montanans, both at home and in combat. He deserves respect for his courage on our behalf,? Democratic Governor Steve Bullock said in a statement. Bullock said he had no knowledge of the issues raised in Wednesday?s New York Times report when he appointed Walsh in February to fill the Senate slot vacated by Democrat Max Baucus.
By Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers' inability to reach an agreement on immigration policy is at least partly to blame for a crisis that has seen thousands of children flee Honduras for the U.S. border, Honduran President Juan Hernandez said on Thursday. Human and drug traffickers are "perversely" exploiting confusion about U.S. immigration policy, Hernandez told reporters on Capitol Hill, flanked by Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina and U.S. House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, before a meeting with House Democrats. Hernandez, Perez Molina and El Salvadoran President Salvador Sanchez Ceren are scheduled to meet on Friday with U.S. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden to discuss ways to stop the flow of children migrating from the three Central American countries.
By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Jade and rubies from Myanmar will remain banned from the United States unless the Asian nation moves to end a provision in its constitution that bars opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi from running for president, a senior U.S. senator said on Thursday. Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican party's leader in the Senate, said there is little appetite in the U.S. Congress to reinstate stiff trade sanctions that were imposed on Myanmar during its decades of tough military rule. "It is hard to see how those provisions get lifted without there being progress on the constitutional eligibility issue and the closely related issue of the legitimacy of the 2015 elections," said McConnell, who has taken a long-term interest in Myanmar and visited two years ago. Improving relations with Myanmar has been a priority with the U.S. government, but lately Washington has been concerned that the Asian nation also known as Burma is backing away from its reform agenda.

Special Report with Bret Baier
By: Bridget Creel, Special Report Summer Associate In response to a deadly ultimatum delivered by ISIS, thousands of Iraqi Christians have left their homes to seek safety from religious persecution. Mosul, Iraq?s second largest city, was captured by ISIS in June and the extremists have threatened and even harmed all inhabitants who do not practice Islam. This weekend, the Islamic State terror group (ISIS/IS) delivered a statement to Christians that gave them the choice between converting to Islam, paying a tax or fleeing their ancient homeland. The offer was time sensitive and if they failed to choose by Saturday, July 19, ISIS said there would be ?nothing for them but the sword.? Christians who were not willing to compromise with the militants fled Mosul. Before they were able to officially depart, ISIS demanded that they be stripped of all valuable belongings, leaving most Christians with nothing but remnants of their clothing. Christians are not the only ones affected by the acts of ISIS. ISIS is responsible for the destruction of mosques and shrines, causing other religious minorities to flee Mosul as well. Iraqi Prime Minister, Nuri Al-Maliki, called for governmental support for the homeless Iraqis who were forced to leave Mosul. He said that this specific event demonstrates "the extreme criminality and terrorist nature of this group.? Although many have moved away, some Iraqi Christians are facing the alternatives. Several Christians have converted to Islam and those that choose to stay, refuse to abandon their religious beliefs. Syrian Catholic Archbishop of Mosul, Yohanna Petros Mouche told the Washington Post, ?If we all leave, it sends the message that there is nowhere safe for Christians to live in Iraq ? and this worries me. I?m not a vagabond. This is my home, and I will die here if necessary.?
By: Bridget Creel, Special Report Summer Associate Right in between the surge of rockets from Islamic extremist group Hamas and ground offensives from Israeli forces, innocent inhabitants of Gaza City turn to other options for shelter and safety. The Gazans run into one problem: they are literally trapped. The rectangular geography of the Gaza Strip poses implications for those wishing to relocate. The Gaza Strip, which is 25 miles long and between three and seven miles wide, has concrete walls and fences along the perimeter of the eastern and northern boundaries. Israel and Egypt can be found at the southern end of the strip and the western side of the strip borders the Mediterranean Sea, leaving the Gazans immovable. Due to the travel restrictions on Gazans from Egypt and Israel, Gazans are forced to seek out new living situations within the unsafe area. Those along the border have fled to relatives? homes and those with nowhere else to turn have looked to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency?s (UNRWA) emergency shelters for accommodation. Beginning on July 7, UNRWA issued a state of emergency in all areas within the Gaza Strip. Early this morning, UNRWA tweeted, ?More than 83,000 people are now taking refuge in UNRWA schools in #Gaza. Numbers are growing.? Despite consistent efforts to keep up with the rising number of inhabitants, the UNRWA has run into several difficulties, some more unexpected than others. Last week, 20 rockets were found in one of the agency?s abandoned schools. Following the discovery, the agency issued a statement that prohibited the storage of the Gaza militants? harmful rockets in their facilities. UNRWA continues to distribute food and water to the shelters but the combat has disrupted the delivery of the supplies. The agency runs into numerous other problems, such as the destruction of schools, as the conflict escalates. In the past 24 hours, numbers released by the UNRWA revealed a devastating loss for both sides. Innocent Palestinian and Israeli citizens are facing the repercussions of the battle. This morning, President Obama said Israel has the right to defend itself against Hamas but that the United States has ?serious concerns about the rising number of Palestinian civilian deaths and the loss of Israeli lives.? He went on to say that the focus should be ?a cease-fire that ends the fighting and that can stop the deaths of innocent civilians, both in Gaza and in Israel.? Inside United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) on July 18, 2014 in Gaza City. Israel launched a Gaza ground campaign after 10 days of bombardments from the air and sea failed to stop militants' rocket attacks, stepping up an offensive that already has taken a heavy toll in civilian lives.(Photo by Momen Faiz/NurPhoto/Sipa USA) (Sipa via AP Images)

By: Bridget Creel, Special Report Summer Associate Over the past ten years, four instances have occurred where the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have sent active bacteria samples to outside labs. An anthrax scare took place last month, marking the fifth mishap for the CDC. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) insisted on further investigation and recently exposed new details of the incident. Backtracking to June 19, the CDC announced that scientists working at the lab in Atlanta had been unintentionally exposed to anthrax. The CDC quickly took action and provided antibiotics for those who were affected. Following the scare, there was no indication that any of the scientists were infected. It is expected that in every instance, the CDC takes cautionary measures and assesses all risks before encountering dangerous bacteria. With that being said, how could a slip up like this happen for the fifth time? On Friday, the CDC published a detailed report of the event, with everything from findings to action plans. According to the CDC?s report, ?The overriding factor contributing to this incident was the lack of an approved, written study plan reviewed by senior staff or scientific leadership to ensure that the research design was appropriate and met all laboratory safety requirements.? Additional aspects that contributed to the occurrence included the use of unwarranted sterilization methods, no confirmation for inactive materials and insufficient knowledge of the procedures. As officials further investigated the catastrophe, additional information was uncovered. A report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said that the CDC should have sterilized anthrax samples before the samples were sent to the other CDC labs. The report also found that there were several different factors that went against safety guidelines including use of expired disinfectants, use of defective security measures, lack of examination of exposed scientists and the transfer of the bacteria through Ziploc bags. A House hearing was held today that discussed recent reports of the problems caused by the CDC. The hearing addressed issues such as ways to improve biosafety, the broader implications of the event and whether or not Congressional action should take place. The CDC labs have been closed and will not reopen until safety guidelines are put in place, CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said.
A non-profit group is laying out plans to turn the Palm Aire Hotel in Weslaco, TX into a facility to house illegal immigrant children between the ages of 12-17. The group was awarded a $50 million federal contract to purchase the hotel. The facility would hold 600 beds and house the illegal children for an average of 15 days, providing them with meals, medical care, educational programs, and even outdoor recreational facilities that currently include a pool, gym, and tennis courts. City officials have put a hold on the plans due to permit issues, but the the organization, Baptist Child & Family Services, hopes to have the facility operational by October 1st. Some are concerned about the other landowners in the area, as well as how many children the facility will hold and how they will decide what children will stay or be turned away. A fence would be placed around the facility, and restrictions would be put in place. The facility would employ around 650 people, and proponents of the plan say this is a responsible move in the right direction. What do you think? Is this a good idea? Let us know here on the blog or on Twitter @BretBaier. For more on this story please visit here
