1. From Rogan's list, this is a possible way of getting a DACA fix. Let's call moderate Republicans about this. Erik Paulsen has joined. What about the other Republican representatives? WE NEED JUST (HOPEFULLY) THREE MORE!
Moderate Republicans continue to push forward with their discharge petition; Paul Ryan is still opposed to letting them frame how the House brings immigration legislation to the floor. “Californian Steve Knight is one of nearly two dozen House Republicans who have signed on to a petition to force the House to vote on immigration proposals as early as next month. The plan is to allow the House to vote on at least four bills, including a pathway to citizenship that many conservatives hate. That plan frustrates House leaders who worry a messy fight on immigration will divide the party and boost Democrats' chances of winning control of the House in November.” https://www.npr.org/2018/05/30/615554912/house-split-on-immigration-might-be-good-politics-for-some-moderate-republicans It sounds like a potential win for Dreamers to us! Let’s call our House reps, R or D, and encourage them to sign on to the petition.
2. DFL Convention. The primaries are in August.
The non-obvious winners:
Erin Murphy - Governor
Tina Smith - Senator
Matt Pelikan - Attorney General
Julie Blaha - State Auditor (over Lori Swanson)
3. A letter from Trump's attorney's to Mueller leaked. To me, it seems the biggest news is that Trump himself may have dictated the letter regarding the infamous Trump Tower meeting.
