AMERICA V. THE WORLDA draft of a bill from the Trump administration would propose having the U.S. abandon key World Trade Organization principles and essentially provide the president a license to raise U.S. tariffs at will, without congressional consent and with disregard toward international rules. TWO CAN PLAY THAT GAMEThe Canadian government has imposed tariffs on U.S. exports worth $16.6 billion Canadian dollars ($12.5 billion). More than 40 U.S. steel products attract tariffs of 25%. A tax of 10% has been levied on more than 80 other American items including toffee, maple syrup, coffee beans, and strawberry jam.

Mazie Hirono Wants to Protect Unions After Supreme Court Deals Blow to Labor
Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI)
on Thursday introduced bicameral legislation to guarantee the right for public employees to organize, act concertedly, and bargain collectively in states that currently do not afford these basic protections. Joined by Congressman Matt Cartwright (D-PA), the lawmakers led nearly 50 Senate and House Democrats in introducing the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act. The Supreme Court ruled last week in Janus v. AFSCME that non-union workers cannot be forced to pay fees to public sector unions. If passed, this bill would enshrine into federal statutes the ability for public workers to form or join a labor organization that can bargain over issues such as wages, benefits and other terms and conditions, including grievance procedures. It would also require state and local government employers to recognize the unions and to negotiate with them on a good faith basis. The bill also provides for mediation and arbitration proceedings, while setting up a mechanism for employees to voluntarily have their union dues deducted from their paychecks. “The Supreme Court’s decision in Janus is just the latest blow in a decades-long attack on unions and their ability to lift American families into the middle class... We need to pass the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act to protect and strengthen the fundamental the ability of unions to organize and collectively bargain for fair wages and working conditions that are critical to public-sector employees,” said Hirono. Co-sponsors of the Senate bill include Cory Booker (D-NJ), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Kamala Harris (D-CA), and Bob Menéndez (D-NJ), and co-sponsors of the House bill include Bobby Scott (D-VA), Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), Bobby Rush (D-IL), Mark Takano (D-CA), and Frederica Wilson (D-FL).

Harris, Booker, Scott Say Lynching Should Be a Federal Hate Crime
Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ),
and Tim Scott (R-SC), the only Black members of the Senate, have come together to introduce a bipartisan bill to make lynching -- the willful act of murder by a collection of people assembled with the intention of committing an act of violence upon any person – -a federal crime. The Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2018 will amend the United States Code to specify that lynching is punishable as a hate crime. “It’s a travesty that despite repeated attempts to do so, Congress still hasn’t put anti-lynching legislation on the books. This bill will right historical wrongs by acknowledging our country’s stained past and codifying into law our commitment to abolishing this shameful practice,” said Booker. “From 1882 to 1986 there have been 200 attempts that have failed to get Congress to pass federal anti-lynching legislation, it’s time for that to change,” said Harris. Scott added that "This measure is certainly well past due and I am glad to be able to join in efforts that will underscore the severity of this crime. This piece of legislation sends a message that together, as a nation, we condemn the actions of those that try to divide us with violence and hate.” We first told you about this legislation in June after Harris previewed her intentions to introduce the bill on Joe Madison’s SiriusXM radio show. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was asked by Madison about anti-lynching legislation, and he responded, “I certainly would support it.” More than 200 attempts have been made to pass an anti-lynching law in Congress. This is the Senate companion to legislation introduced last week in the House by Congressman Bobby Rush (D-IL) and 36 members of the Congressional Black Caucus. More here.

Catherine Cortez Masto Intros Bill to Fight Online Sex and Drug Trafficking
Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) wants to know more about how the federal government can end the online drug and sex trafficking business. Together with Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA), the pair have introduced the Fight Illicit Networks and Detect (FIND) Trafficking Act of 2018 to require the Government Accountability Office to conduct a study on how virtual currencies and online marketplaces are used to facilitate sex and drug trafficking and make recommendations for congressional and federal action on how to fight the abuse of virtual currency to facilitate crime. “Since my time as Nevada’s Attorney General I’ve made it my mission to stop trafficking of innocent women, children, and illicit drugs,” said Cortez Masto. “One of the key ways I was able to lead that fight was by collecting the data that helped stop these criminal enterprises. Right now, these enterprises are using virtual currencies and the dark web to avoid being brought to justice. This study will give us answers and provide Congress with additional tools to disrupt this illicit economy. We need to make sure Congress and law enforcement understand how to fight crime in the 21st century.” The companion House bill introduced by Congressman Juan Vargas (D-CA) and Keith Rothfus (R-PA) passed unanimously on June 25th.

Joaquín Castro Wants Congress to Oversee All Federal Facilities
Congressman Joaquín Castro (D-TX)
wants members of Congress to immediately be given access to federal facilities. Joined by Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), the lawmakers introduced the bicameral Restoring Oversight for Members of Congress Act. The measure provides for Members of Congress to obtain immediate access to all federal facilities, including those under contract or lease, to ensure elected representatives can conduct their oversight role without interference from the executive branch. It would also give members of Congress an avenue to report their findings. Finally, the bill calls for penalties if an agency denies a member access. The bill does contain limited exceptions for national security reasons and creates a process for members to access sensitive and secure facilities. “Under the Trump Administration’s zero-humanity immigration policy migrant children have been taken from their parents and locked away in federal facilities under spartan conditions. These facilities house vulnerable people, including minors, and it’s critical that Congress ensures the conditions are humane and appropriate, even if the policy is not,” Castro and Wyden said.

Calls to Abolish ICE Resound, but Hispanic Caucus Says Hold On
A document by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) appears to be pushing back on calls to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), instead focusing the blame for the agency’s misconduct on Donald Trump and his administration. In talking points circulated by Caucus staff to the members and obtained by The Daily Beast, the documents call ICE’s immigration enforcement regime both “inhumane and harsh” and say that “abolishing ICE without changing President Trump’s disastrous immigration policy will not solve the problem.” The talking points say that immigration enforcement is just one part of the agency’s portfolio and that it handles issues such as narcotics enforcement, investigating cybercrimes, human smuggling, firearms smuggling, and counterterrorism -- all very important security options. The document then goes on to state that the agency’s policy priority under Trump appears to be to deport 11 million people that “has led to this public outcry ... The agency’s name or place on the organizational chart doesn’t need to be changed. ICE needs greater oversight and accountability so that we can protect the homeland and better manage our broken immigration system,” the talking points say. A source close to the CHC told The Daily Beast that the talking points did not constitute a formal position of the CHC. More here.

Ted Lieu Wants DHS to Investigate Claims of Asylum-Seekers Being Turned Away
Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA)
wants an investigation into reports that asylum-seekers are being turned away at the border. Lieu on Friday led 51 colleagues in a letter calling for Department of Homeland Security Inspector General John Kelly to open an investigation regarding reports that asylum-seekers are being turned away at the U.S.-Mexico border before being referred to an asylum officer. In the letter, they also expressed dismay at Trump administration policies that could compel families to choose between pursuing legal asylum claims or being reunited and then deported. “We urge you to immediately open an investigation into the Department of Homeland Security’s potentially illegal treatment of asylum seekers at the southwest border, including the denial of access to asylum procedures, the pressure to recant fears of return and the implementation of a policy that incentivizes asylum seekers to forfeit their claims in order to be reunited with their children,” the letter reads. Read the letter here.

Obama Visits Venture Capital Firm
The Associated Press reports that former President Barack Obama visited Andreessen Horowitz, a prominent Silicon Valley venture capital firm, last week. Andrew Chen, a General Partner at the VC, posted a photo on Twitter of POTUS44 posing Friday with a large group of people, including several venture capitalists at the firm based in Menlo Park, California. Obama, while still president in 2016, was asked by Bloomberg about his post-presidency plans, and mentioned Silicon Valley and pulling together his interests in science and organization. Obama had also headlined a Democratic fundraiser Friday in nearby Atherton where he gave House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) a ringing endorsement. "Nancy, I believe is one of the greatest Speakers we ever had and will once again be one of the greatest Speakers we ever have after we get through this cycle," Obama said. "And there's not much I could have gotten done without having Nancy there alongside of me every step of the way." The Northern California fundraiser brought in $2.5 million for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. More on the VC meeting here.
Tim Scott Nominates Trey Gowdy for Supreme Court
Senator Tim Scott (R-SC)
wants to add a name to Donald Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees -- Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC).

During an appearance on CNN's Van Jones Show, Scott called Gowdy -- a former federal prosecutor -- "incredibly fair" and said he was an equal opportunity critic of both the Trump and Obama administrations. The president has said he will name his nominee to the court on July 9th. Gowdy was not among the 25 names the White House put forward. More here

Diverse List of TV Writers of Color Unveiled
An online database of more than 800 television writers of color was unveiled by the Creative Artists Agency on Thursday, according to the NYT. The “Amplify Database” is intended to serve not just as a resource but also as a rejoinder to the common refrain that qualified diverse writers are hard to find. It’s searchable by gender, genre specialty, ethnicity and experience, and, according to its creators, will be available free to studios, showrunners, and networks. The list includes well-known writers like Mindy Kaling and Al Madrigal, but it also includes names not widely known outside show business like Shernold Edwards of Killjoys and Bentley Kyle Evans of Family Time. While the database is expected to grow, membership currently stands at 46% Black, 28% AAPI, 23% Latino, and 3% Native American. More here.

NAACP Sues Connecticut Over “Prison Gerrymandering”
The NAACP filed suit against Connecticut in federal court on Thursday over the state’s method of counting inmates where they are incarcerated when creating legislative districts, arguing the practice dilutes the voting power of urban communities. The suit states “many (African-American and Latino) individuals are incarcerated in correctional facilities that the State has located primarily in rural, lightly populated, predominantly white parts of Connecticut.” Most inmates cannot vote under state law and don’t have contact with local representatives in the areas they are incarcerated. The NAACP argues that Connecticut, like many states, disenfranchises prisoners and has concentrated its prisons primarily in rural areas, and the effect is that white, rural voters in the districts where prisons are located have their electoral power unconstitutionally inflated, at the expense of voters of color in other, over-crowded districts. The civil rights group alleges the state’s legislative redistricting plan scheduled for use in the 2018 and 2020 elections equates to “prison gerrymandering.” Four other states -- New York, Maryland, Delaware, and California -- have enacted laws that require counting prisoners at their home addresses rather than their prison locations, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
