SCOTUS decision on purging Ohio voter rolls could have an effect on midterms 9 MIN, 34 SEC

The Supreme Court upheld Ohio’s decision to purge its voting rolls of people who haven’t cast ballots in a while. The decision was split along ideological lines, with the conservative justices in the majority.

New Mexico judge on sentencing immigrants: 'Your heart gets broken 10 times a day' 15 MIN, 24 SEC

President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy at the border means everyone who crosses illegally and is caught will be prosecuted. That’s expected to swell lock-ups and courtrooms. The policy is new for the border in California, but it’s been happening for years in New Mexico. One judge there has handed down 15,000 sentences since 2003. He admits that he presides over a system that destroys families.
