Annnnd We're Back!

I picked a GREAT week to be away! WOW! I leave the country and the Mueller Report drops! SO much to discuss, but let's start with a bit of a recap!


"5 things to know for April 2: Supreme Court, immigration, Brexit" -CNN


1. Immigration - "Could President Donald Trump actually shut down the southern border? The administration is sending mixed messages."

2. Supreme Court - "The Supreme Court seems to be in the middle of a rare public feud over how the death penalty should be enforced. The justices have been bitterly divided over the execution of a Muslim inmate in Alabama, who claimed his religious rights were violated because he could not have an imam with him in the execution chamber."

3. Brexit - "Time for your Brexit update: Things are still a mess! On Monday, UK members of Parliament ended up rejecting four different alternative options to Prime Minister Theresa May's unpopular Brexit plan. The options included two proposals to keep Britain in a customs union with the European Union that narrowly missed out on a majority."

4. Brunei - "It is a tumultuous time for human rights in Brunei, a tiny nation on the island of Borneo in the South China Sea. Tomorrow, a new law goes into effect that will punish adultery and homosexual sex with death by stoning." This makes my heart hurt. 💔

5. Algeria - "Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika is going to step down just a few weeks before his term expires on April 28th. The announcement comes after weeks of protests and calls for the 82-year-old's resignation."
