LOOP: Senate rejects four immigration plans



SCHOOL SHOOTINGS  Americans are divided on what to do to stem gun violence. But if we hope to find common ground, we need to make sure we get our facts straight.

SENATE BLOCKS IMMIGRATION  We’re back to square one, as the United States Senate shot down four different immigration plans, including one that President Trump called “a total catastrophe.” A proposal to cut funding to sanctuary cities was shot down because it fell short of the 60-vote threshold.
