WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has rejected President Donald Trump’s effort to end legal protections for 650,000 young immigrants, a stunning rebuke to the president in the midst of his reelection campaign. The outcome seems certain to elevate the issue in Trump’s campaign for reelection, given the anti-immigrant rhetoric of his first presidential run in 2016 and immigration restrictions his administration has imposed since then.

NEW:

UNDATED (AP) — Democrat Joe Biden and Republican Donald Trump have won Indiana's presidential primary. Indiana is among the states and the District of Columbia with primaries on Tuesday. The Democratic result in Indiana was expected because Biden’s rivals have already dropped out of the race. The former vice president’s haul of delegates from his Indiana victory pushes him closer to the 1,911 delegates he needs to capture the Democratic presidential nomination. The state’s primary was delayed by four weeks because of the coronavirus outbreak. Voters in nine states and the District of Columbia are participating in primaries Tuesday.

Republican Senators Mike Braun and Todd Young were selected by President Trump to serve on the “Opening up America again” congressional task force.

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - A defiant President Donald Trump is labeling his impeachment by the House of Representatives “a suicide march” for the Democratic Party. 

Trump spoke at a freewheeling rally in Michigan on Wednesday night as the House voted to impeach him.

He took the stage just minutes before he became the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.

It was a dramatic and discordant split-screen moment, with Trump emerging from a mock fireplace like Santa Claus at the Christmas-themed rally as the debate in Washington was underway.

A protest was staged in South Bend on the eve of the U.S. House debating and voting on Articles of Impeachment against Pres. Donald Trump. The demonstration was outside the office of Sen. Mike Braun, a Republican who has indicated he will not support impeachment and will support Trump when the issue comes before the U.S. Senate. 

Some demonstrators chanted, "Lock him up!" A variation on the chant often heard at Trump's rallies when he urges his supporters to voice displeasure about his 2016 political opponent, Hillary Clinton. Below are video clips of protestors chanting. 

About 50 protestors lined the sidewalk in front of Braun’s office Tuesday night. They want President Donald Trump impeached.
