    Obama’s Immigration Actions Still Unrealized

    WASHINGTON — Nearly a year after President Barack Obama announced sweeping immigration actions, new doubts are emerging as to when — if ever — the measures will take effect. To the frustration of Obama and his allies, the new rules, which include broad deportation protections and new work permit guidelines, are stalled in a court battle initiated by Republican governors.

  • Soccer's powerful, polarizing governing body found itself on the defensive on two fronts Wednesday, one a Swiss investigation into World Cup bidding and the other a sweeping, stinging U.S. indictment homing in on what America's top justice official called "corruption that is rampant, systemic and deep-rooted."

    FIFA Corruption Probe Targets ‘World Cup of Fraud,’ IRS Chief Says

    Allegations of corruption at FIFA are nothing new to those who follow the international soccer organization. But what was surprising to some on Wednesday was the sense that someone, somewhere, was finally doing something substantial about them. The U.S. Justice Department unsealed a 47-count indictment in federal court in Brooklyn that detailed charges against 14 people accused of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracy. The most serious are the racketeering charges, which allege that the officials turned soccer “into […]

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Hillary Clinton’s team launched its campaign store late Monday, offering a place for eager supporters to donate in return for bumper stickers, signs and, yes, even a throw pillow.

    Rubio: Gay Marriage Proponents Pose ‘danger’ to Christianity

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio took a decidedly conservative turn on same-sex marriage in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network this week, warning that “there’s a real and present danger” that gay marriage proponents will cast the teachings of mainstream Christianity as “hate speech.” “If you think about it, we are at the water’s edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech.
