Government shutdown: Will Trump agree to brand-new arrangement?

After President Donald Trump used an El Paso, Texas, rally to make his case for border wall funding, information of the contract legislators made “in primary” to prevent another federal government shutdown are expected to be launched Tuesday. A bipartisan group of legislators, consisting of Republican Sen. Richard Shelby and Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey, revealed the offer following a closed-door conference on Capitol Hill. Till this past weekend, the greatest sticking point for the group had been how to deal with the president’s need for a $5.7 billion wall along the southern border — during the last shutdown, Democrats refused to provide him the cash, saying the wall would be costly and inefficient. Trump mostly avoided talking about the revealed deal throughout the rally and gave no sign of whether he’d be willing to sign such a offer. 

Contract talks to resume in Denver teachers strike

Negotiations are anticipated to resume Tuesday in between striking teachers and Denver Public Schools. Thousands of school employees strolled off the task Monday after stopping working to reach an agreement with administrators over salaries and benefits — the newest in a year of instructor strikes throughout the nation. In a series of tweets, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock offered “all the resources at my disposal” to aid teachers and school administrators reach an arrangement to end the strike. Substitutes and administrators are staffing facilities in the 90,000-students, 207- school district, although authorities acknowledged the strike would cause disturbances. Early-childhood class are closed, leaving about 5,000 young children at home.

‘El Chapo’ trial: What’s taking the jury so long? 

A federal jury in New York will intentional for a sixth day Tuesday to decide the fate of alleged Mexican kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán.  Federal district attorneys, who have called 56 witnesses against Guzmán during the trial, including 14 alleged former associates of the accused drug lord, argue that Guzmán smuggled heaps of cocaine and other drugs into the United States. So why are the jurors, who are serving anonymously, taking so long?  The answer might lie in part in the 10- count superseding indictment prosecutors filed versus Guzmán, 61. The charges consist of participating in a continuing criminal enterprise, criminal activity that could bring a life sentence in jail, drug trafficking, usage of a firearm in tandem with drug-related crimes and loan laundering.
