JUST IN: President Biden announces new executive action protecting undocumented immigrant spouses and children of US citizens. Read more: Biden to announce new executive action protecting immigrant spouses and children of US citizens | CNN Politics
Quick Glance: Biden's Move to Protect Undocumented Immigrant Spouses and Children
  • The Biden administration announced an executive action allowing certain undocumented spouses and children of US citizens to apply for lawful permanent residency without leaving the country. This action aims to provide legal status and protections for around 500,000 American families and roughly 50,000 noncitizen children of immigrants under 21 years old.

  • This move targets key Latino constituencies in battleground states and serves as an olive branch to immigration advocates and progressives. Despite facing legal challenges, the administration believes the action falls within its legal authorities. Eligibility criteria include living in the US for at least 10 years and being legally married to a US citizen.

  • The action is seen as a way to keep families intact and could impact up to 550,000 individuals. The application process will open by the end of the summer, allowing individuals to seek higher-wage jobs from inside the US. The executive order is part of a broader immigration policy by Biden, with potential economic benefits for those affected.

  • Senate Republicans criticized Biden's action for creating more incentives for illegal immigration, while some Democrats praised the move. The announcement also included facilitating the employment-visa process for high-skilled individuals. Overall, the executive action represents a significant step in addressing immigration issues in the US.

Quick Glance: Court Orders BNSF to Pay $400M to WA Tribe for Trespass
  • A ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Robert Lasnik mandates BNSF to compensate the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community with just under $400 million for encroaching on the reservation.

  • Last year, Lasnik's judgment found BNSF Railway to have intruded deliberately and knowingly into the Swinomish Reservation by transporting approximately a quarter-million cars of crude oil, exceeding the agreed-upon limits with the tribe.

  • Commencing earlier this month, a judicial trial required BNSF to demonstrate the revenue portion it would have generated from crude oil transportation had it not breached the easement agreement.

  • The legal decision is rooted in a 2015 lawsuit alleging that BNSF exceeded the permissible number of cars by operating six 100-car trains weekly on the right of way, as stipulated in the easement agreement.
