DETROIT (Reuters) - Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden came under heavy fire over healthcare, immigration and criminal justice reform on Wednesday, but fought back against a stage full of rivals eager to knock him off his perch during a contentious debate.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - California’s Democratic governor signed a law on Tuesday requiring U.S. presidential candidates to release five years of tax returns before they can appear on the state’s ballot, a move aimed squarely at President Donald Trump.

(Reuters) - A federal judge in San Francisco on Wednesday blocked the Trump administration from enforcing a new rule that aimed to bar almost all asylum applications at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The protestors yelled into a megaphone, held signs reading, “Where will you spend eternity? The fool has said, ‘There is no God.’ Repent or Perish,” and one of them wore a “Trust Jesus” t-shirt. But instead of repenting or perishing, DelRay and Colle decided to start kissing in front of the protestors, going so far as...

Organizer Don Grundmann from the National Straight Pride Coalition tells his local news station that the event is his group’s “cultural answer” to “anyone that supports the LGBTQ lifestyle.” “Essentially it boils down to two religious views of the world,” Grundmann says. “One is Christianity, which is represented by heterosexuality, a culture of life, and its opponent is the LGBT...
