Trump’s Hill meeting ‘didn’t move the ball’ on immigration bill:

Congressional Republicans, keen to secure an end to a policy separating children from their parents at the US border, received unclear marching orders from President Donald Trump on Tuesday after a meeting on Capitol Hill.

Some lawmakers emerged from the hour-long huddle adamant Trump had endorsed a compromise measure that would allow families to remain together.

But others were more equivocal, saying Trump only expressed support for any bill that arrives on his desk — either the compromise plan or a more conservative version whose prospects appear dim.
The White House said afterward Trump “endorsed both House immigration bills,” which also provide funding for his promised border wall and close certain immigration loopholes.
But the lack of a clear endorsement for either plan quieted GOP hopes for presidential momentum.

Over 500 guns found at convicted felon’s California home, officials say:

he first time the sheriff’s department searched one convicted felon’s home, they say they found 432 firearms. When they went back a day later, they found another 91 guns hidden in the residence.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in Palmdale responded to a tip from a neighbor of Agua Dulce resident Manuel Fernandez, 60.
“This case is a testament to the community’s involvement in reducing crime and taking guns out of the hands of criminals,” said Sheriff Jim McDonnell.
Fernandez was arrested on charges including being a felon in possession of firearms, possession of an assault rifle, being a felon in possession of ammunition and possession of large capacity magazines, gun accessories that are used to hold up to 100 rounds of ammunition. In California, any magazine that holds more than 10 rounds is considered “large capacity.”

“This draft,” one Western Conference assistant GM said, “is going to change the way the game is played over the next eight to 10 years, because the way to beat teams that play small and defensively switch everything is to have big skilled guys. And that’s what this draft is full of.
