A Texas federal judge has ruled that a law requiring only men to register for the draft is unconstitutional. A San Diego-based men’s rights group brought forward the suit. Also, a 24-year-old Alabama woman who joined ISIS now wants to come home to the U.S. The Trump administration says it’s not going to let her return, claiming that she’s not an American citizen, even though she was born here. Her parents are now suing the government to get her and her 18-month-old son back.
