SCOTUS: Corporations are people

By CNN's Deena Zaru

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that for-profit corporations can be exempt from providing certain contraceptives to their employees if providing coverage for those products conflicts with the corporation’s religious beliefs.

The Court's opinion affirmed the principle that corporations are people and therefore like people, have constitutionally protected religious liberty.
The 5-4 decision against Obama’s contraceptive mandate not only presents legal obstacles for the mandate but also sets a significant precedent when it comes to the court’s understanding of religious freedom.

Temporary relief for flood of children at U.S.-Mexico border

By CNN's Kylie Mohr

“This is a humanitarian crisis,” so says Jeanne-Aimee De Marrais of “Save the Children.”  She is talking about the thousands of children flooding the U.S. border with Mexico.

“This is an unprecedented influx of unaccompanied children,” said Marrais, the director of domestic emergencies for Save the Children.  “We aren’t aware of any other influx of kids, in this scope and scale, anywhere in the world.  There’s not a manual of ‘how do you handle this?’”
