Freight rail companies and unions have reached an agreement to avoid a strike that could have been catastrophic. The New York times reports:

“Talks had stalled over a push for companies to improve working conditions, including allowing workers to take unpaid leave to visit physicians. The agreement grants that ability, giving workers one additional paid day off and an ability to attend medical appointments without penalty, labor unions said.”

The current administration continues to deny the invasion happening at the southern border. Kamala Harris says the border is “secure.”
