US deficit projected to reach $1.9 trillion this year
Quick Glance: Forecast: US Deficit Reaches $1.9 Trillion
  • It is expected that the federal budget deficit will reach $1.9 trillion this fiscal year, as stated by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) on Tuesday, with government spending on the rise.

  • The current CBO projection for the cumulative deficit from 2025 to 2034 amounts to $22.1 trillion, which is 10 percent higher than the previous February projection, resulting in a $2.1 trillion increase.

  • The increase in the deficit is mainly attributed to several key drivers, including foreign military aid, actions by the Biden administration regarding student loans, the slower-than-expected recovery of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation from payments related to bank failures over the past two years, and higher outlays for Medicaid and discretionary spending.

Quick Glance: Poll Reveals Neck-and-Neck Presidential Race and Voter Discontent
  • The race for the White House remains in a dead heat just months before Election Day. Lisa Desjardins analyzes the numbers from our latest PBS News/NPR/Marist poll.

  • The poll shows the race at 49-49 if the election were held today, with a margin of error of 4.2 percent. This indicates a statistical dead heat between Republicans, more for Trump, and Democrats, more for Biden, for over a year.

  • Voter dissatisfaction with the two main candidates is reflected in the poll, with 55 percent of respondents expressing dissatisfaction. Independent voters show high dissatisfaction. The top issues concerning voters are preserving democracy, inflation, and immigration.

  • The economy is a central theme in the campaign, with Biden claiming he has done more for Wisconsin than Trump. Despite Wisconsin's strong economic performance, voters still feel financial strains, especially in the housing market and food costs.

Biden to announce new executive action protecting immigrant spouses and ...
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: Texas Risks Losing Billions in Federal Funds Over Abbott LGBTQ Directive, Democrats Warn
  • Democrats warned a state education board in Texas on Monday that Texas colleges and universities risk losing billions in federal funding if they comply with Gov. Greg Abbott's directive to ignore a new federal rule bolstering nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ students.

  • The new rule, which covers discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity for the first time, is slated to take effect August 1, though federal judges have temporarily blocked enforcement in 10 GOP-led states.

  • Refusing to adhere to the administration's new rule, which also strengthens nondiscrimination protections for pregnant students and makes changes to how schools handle claims of sexual misconduct, may also put students' civil rights at risk, Texas Democrats argued.

  • House and Senate Republicans have filed disapproval resolutions this month to strike down the new rule before its enforcement date, and lawsuits challenging the law in more than a dozen Republican-led states are still pending.
