Republicans in Congress are demanding concessions on immigration in exchange for allowing more funding for Ukraine and Israel.

The White House has started to take part in these negotiations; which could potentially be the biggest change to immigration policy in decades.

And former President Donald Trump shows no signs of slipping in the GOP primary, even though he's under indictment in four cases, and other candidates poll better against President Joe Biden.

Finally, the Supreme Court has agreed to take up a case about abortion drug mifepristone, after a push by anti-abortion-rights advocates.
