The breakdown: 

1. Georgia prosecutor fights back against Trump attempt to remove her from election probe.

  • For more than two years now, Fani Willis has been investigating the actions former President Donald Trump and others took in the wake of the 2020 election.
  • Trump's Georgia legal team in March asked the court to toss out the report of a special grand jury that had been seated in the case and to prevent prosecutors from using any evidence or testimony stemming from the panel's investigation.


2. Immigration policy is uncertain now that Title 42 has been lifted.

  •  The Trump administration invoked Title 42 in spring 2020 as COVID-19 cases were spreading.

    •  That meant that border agents could quickly process and expel migrants.
  • The policy expired last week. 

LISTEN: Chuck Kuck speaks about working with immigrant families.

3. Army officially designates Fort Moore, dropping Confederate name Benning.

  • The Army's training hub in Georgia was renamed Fort Moore during a ceremony last week. 
  • The change replaces the name of a Confederate officer that had adorned the base for more than a century with that of a decorated Vietnam War commander and his wife.

LISTEN: Chuck Williams talks about the renaming of Fort Benning.
