ROUGH PATH TO CITIZENSHIPHouse Republicans will seek to settle their differences this morning in a two-hour immigration meeting where GOP leaders will try to forge consensus between the conservatives and moderates. Congressman Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) said a major priority is making sure that young immigrants brought to the country as kids have full protection a guaranteed future in America. Conservatives say they are firmly opposed to any special pathway to citizenship. SEE YOU IN COURT… Lawyers representing nearly 200 Democrats in Congress plan to argue in federal court that Donald Trump is violating the Constitution by accepting foreign state favors without first seeking congressional approval. PORN SCORN… "The business you were in entitles you to no degree of giving your credibility any weight." That’s what Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said of Stormy Daniels. "Explain to me how she could be damaged. I mean, she has no reputation. If you're going to sell your body for money, you just don't have a reputation.” He followed up these comments saying Trump’s three wives are great. BTW, some women build an empire out of having sex on tape and later use that platform to help right a wrong in the criminal justice system. KEEPING UP WITH THE COMMUTATIONS… After being influenced by fellow reality TV star Kim Kardashian, Donald Trump granted clemency on Wednesday to Alice Marie Johnson, a first-time nonviolent drug offender who was given a life sentence without parole. Kim visited the West Wing last week to advocate on Johnson’s behalf. There are more than 10,000 languishing applications in the DOJ’s Pardon Office. ALTERNATIVE HISTORY… Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pressed Donald Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a "national security" issue. In response, Trump quipped, "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?" referring to the War of 1812. Just one problem -- it was British troops who burned down the White House during the War of 1812. Not Canadians. LIKE A G… Trump made the comments as he prepares travel to Charlevoix, Canada for a two-day summit with leaders of the G7 after slapping controversial trade tariffs on all the key American allies attending the meeting. WHITE HOUSE RAMADAN… The president, whose rhetoric and policies have infuriated the Muslim community, has hosted his first Iftar dinner at the White House on Wednesday to celebrate Ramadan. SOUTHEAST OVER THE EAST ROOMThe WNBA champions Minnesota Lynx bypassed a visit to the White House and opted instead to go to Southeast DC where the team spent the afternoon handing out Jordan-brand shoes to more than 300 elementary school students. LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE: DIRTY BARRY V. CON-YEShaquille O’Neal is coming out with a new video game. Older gamers might remember the original 1994 Sega Genesis Shaq Fu? The sequel, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, includes BarackFu where players can become the “Commando-in-Chief” by defeating 300 enemies. Players can use an attack called the “Barack n’ Rolla” and have a confrontation with a Kanye West-inspired character called Con-Ye. Time for us to Barack ‘n roll and kick off your Thursday with this...

Booker Wants to Increase Associate Degree Attainment
Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ), Bob Casey (D-PA),
and Tim Kaine (D-VA) have introduced the Correctly Recognizing Educational Achievements to Empower Graduates Act. The lawmakers say this legislation will help people receive the degrees that they have already earned by creating incentives for institutions of higher education to establish “reverse transfer” programs, or initiatives to transfer back credits from a four-year institution to the community college where a student without a degree was initially enrolled. It will also make it easier for colleges and universities to share educational records for the limited purpose of awarding degrees. “If a student has earned the credits required for an associate’s degree, they should be able to obtain it, period. Our bill will encourage institutions of higher education to make common sense changes that will give students who have worked hard to earn their associate’s degree the chance to actually receive it, and succeed in today’s economy,” said Booker.

Dems Call for 9/11-Style Commission for Puerto Rico
Congressmen Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), Darren Soto (D-FL), and Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez (D-NY) on Wednesday called for a 9/11-style commission to look into the deaths in Puerto Rico following the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria. During a press event yesterday, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus members said they will introduce legislation next week to set up the independent commission to examine the death toll and how it was handled, though it is unlikely to move forward in a GOP-controlled Congress. "These numbers drive the narrative about what happened in Puerto Rico and how our government responded, and how we should rebuild going forward," Velázquez said. "We all remember when Donald Trump sat in Puerto Rico and pointed to a death count of 16, suggested that Maria was not, and I quote, 'a real catastrophe.'" Thompson said that the Government Accountability Office has accepted a request to audit the death toll, as requested by himself and Velázquez in December. More here.

Can You Hear Me Now? Doris Matsui Wants Government Spectrum Available for Commercial Use
All wireless signals -- TV, radio, GPS, and mobile broadband -- fly through the air on public, invisible signals called spectrum. Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) wants government agencies to improve their spectral efficiency and effectiveness and make more spectrum available for commercial wireless use. Matsui, along with fellow Co-Chair of the Spectrum Caucus, Congressman Brett Guthrie (R-KY), on Wednesday introduced the SPECTRUM NOW Act which allows agencies that have submitted a plan to study the possibility of increasing their spectrum efficiency and relocating or sharing their spectrum with commercial users to access existing SRF funds that they currently cannot. Without this fix, the lawmakers say federal agencies that have currently identified spectrum that could be repurposed would be unable to conduct the engineering research that could actually allow that spectrum to enter the commercial marketplace. “An adequate supply and pipeline of spectrum is necessary to meet the wireless data needs of next generation broadband networks,” said Matsui. “This bill makes it possible for federal agencies to more efficiently and innovatively use spectrum and, in turn, provide new opportunities for spectrum to be repurposed for commercial use.” More here.

Hank Johnson Intros Bill to Help People of Color Fly
Congressman Hank Johnson (D-GA)
on Wednesday introduced legislation which would create a grant program aimed at improving the preparation and representation of people of color in aviation-related fields. The new grant program, administered by the Federal Aviation Administration, would be named for Bessie Coleman, an American aviator and the first Black woman to earn a pilot’s license. The Minorities in Aviation Education Act would take a step towards diversifying the aviation industry by providing grant funds to states, local governments, institutions of higher education, and nonprofit organizations to increase the exposure and access to aviation-related education and jobs. “We know from academic studies that minorities are underrepresented in aviation fields,” said Johnson, a member of the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee. “By increasing educational opportunities in fields such as piloting, aviation maintenance and unmanned aircraft systems, we will tap into the unrealized potential of minority students and encourage them to enter well-paying careers while bolstering the aviation workforce ... I consider this a jobs bill.” More here.
Bob Menéndez Intros Bill Aimed to Lower Gas Prices
Senator Bob Menéndez (D-NJ) on Wednesday introduced legislation that he says would lower gas prices and bring relief to motorists hitting the road during this summer travel season. The American Oil for American Families Act would ban the export of American crude oil and petroleum products from federal lands and waters. According to Gasbuddy.com, the national average cost for a gallon of regular gas across the nation is hovering around $3. By keeping a portion of American-produced oil at home, Menéndez says the bill aims to improve energy security, lower domestic gas prices, and ensure that federal lands are being used for the good of U.S. residents, rather than to increase oil profits through access to higher-priced foreign markets. This, according to the Senator, would reduce American reliance on foreign oil by providing a significant cushion against global instability and OPEC’s artificial supply constraints. The U.S currently imports about 300 million barrels of crude and petroleum products per month. “My bill is simple. It says if you drill for oil on federal lands, that oil has to stay here in America to help lower gas prices. Whether it’s offshore rigs in the Gulf of Mexico or drilling in the pristine Arctic wilderness, there’s something seriously wrong about using public resources for the exclusive profit of the oil industry. Oil drilled on American land should mean lower prices for the American people,” Menéndez said. More here.

Race to Replace Keith Ellison Gets Crowded
DNC Vice Chair and Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) filed to run for Minnesota Attorney General, as we reported on Wednesday. His decision to run for AG set off a flurry of filings to replace him, and eight Democratic candidates have already filed to succeed him in Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District. Among them is state Rep. Ilhan Omar, the first Somali American Muslim legislator elected to office in the U.S. The North Dakota State University grad currently serves as the Assistant Minority Leader at the Minnesota Legislature. Also jumping into the race is state Sen. Patricia Torres Ray. The Colombian immigrant is the first Hispanic American to be elected to the Minnesota Senate. The University of Minnesota grad was also the first minority woman to run for Lieutenant Governor of the state. Joining Omar and Torres Ray in the fray is state Sen. Bobby Joe Champion. The life-long resident of North Minneapolis, who graduated from Macalester College and William Mitchell College of Law, served with Ellison as an attorney with the Legal Rights Center and as an Assistant Attorney General. Kim Ellison, a Minneapolis School Board member and Keith Ellison’s ex-wife also jumped into the race. The former teacher served on the LearningWorks board at Blake School and on the board for Parents United for Public Schools for nine years. Jamal Abdi Abdulahi also joined the slate of candidates looking to represent the district. The University of Minnesota graduate fled the Somali Civil War and lived in refugee camps before finally having the opportunity to evacuate to America. They’re joined in the Democratic-Farm-Labor party primary by former Minnesota House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher; Julie Sabo, a former state Senator; and Frank Nelson Drake, who challenged Ellison in 2016 as a Republican.

Iowa Candidate Makes History as First Black Woman to Win Party Nomination Statewide
Iowa’s Secretary of State candidate Deidre DeJear narrowly won the Democratic primary on Tuesday, making history as the first African American to win a major political party nomination for a statewide office in the state, securing just over 51% of the vote. If she goes on to defeat incumbent Republican Paul Pate, she would become Iowa’s first Black statewide elected official. The 32-year-old Mississippi native owns a small marketing firm and was a former field organizer for President Barack Obama's re-election campaign. In 2005, DeJear co-founded Back 2 School Iowa, a nonprofit dedicated to collaborating with communities and corporations in order to provide resources to inspire youth in continuing in their education and build their future careers. The 2008 Drake University graduate is endorsed by Emily’s List, Our Revolution, and Let America Vote. More here.
