U.S. President Donald Trump's administration plans to allow so-called 'Dreamer' immigrants to renew deportation protections for a year while it reviews a Supreme Court ruling, a senior administration official said on Tuesday.

It will not only take behavioral changes, but also Congress ensuring everyone has access to COVID-19 testing and treatment, regardless of immigration status.
The police chief of Tucson, Ariz., offered to step down after the release of a video depicting the death of a handcuffed man. Three officers involved have already resigned.
