Congressional Hearing On Slavery Reparations Set For Wednesday

For the first time in a decade Congress will hold a hearing Wednesday on the subject of reparations for the descendants of slaves in the United States, a topic that has gained traction in the run-up to the 2020 elections. The hearing is set for June 19 th , also known as "Juneteenth," the day when in 1865 former enslaved people in Texas first learned that they had been emancipated two years earlier. The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties is holding the hearing on H.R. 40 , which calls for a commission to "study and develop reparation proposals for African-Americans," including a formal apology by the U.S. government "for the perpetration of gross human rights violations and crimes against humanity on African slaves and their descendants." The hearing is scheduled to feature testimony from author Ta-Nehisi Coates, whose article "The Case for Reparations," published by the Atlantic magazine in 2014, is widely credited with re-igniting the

Humongous Horns: Texas Longhorn From Alabama Sets Guinness World Record

Six-year-old Poncho Via doesn't reside in the Lone Star State but he set the Guinness World Record for possessing the longest set of horns on any other Texas longhorn ever. Last month the steer's horns were measured from tip to tip at 10 feet, 7.4 inches. In comparison, Ponchos' spread is more than twice the width of a concert grand piano. Poncho was raised by the Pope family on a small-town farm in Goodwater, Alabama. In 2013, Jeral Pope Sr. reached out to a local veterinarian asking for assistance in finding a pet longhorn ⁠— a fascination that came from a road trip out West, where the elder Pope saw longhorn cattle and decided he had to have one. Once connected to a rodeo supplier, Pope Sr. purchased 6-month-old Poncho who's been their "gentle giant" ever since. Jeral Pope Sr. tends to his pet steer Poncho Via in Clay County Alabama at the Green Acres Farm. The Pope Family Months before Pope Sr. received Poncho, his son Dennis Pope bought himself a longhorn named Moo. Dennis

Kushner Meets With Bipartisan Architects Of Dreamer Legislation

President Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner met privately on Tuesday with the longtime Senate architects of plans to provide citizenship for those brought to the country illegally as children. The meeting has raised concerns among immigration hardliners that Trump's immigration policy is being "watered down," will give Democrats an upper hand and alter the focus of the debate from strictly enforcement to a deal that would include legalization. Kushner was spotted leaving Sen. Lindsey's Graham, R-S.C., office Tuesday morning where he also met with Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., where the three discussed Graham's immigration bill that seeks to change asylum law to help stem the flow of migrants from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a Senate GOP official with leadership. But another person familiar with details of the discussions said that Graham and Durbin want Kushner to support measures that would include protections for those brought to the United
