Christmas Week Storm Threatens Holiday Travel

A massive cold front threatens to bring heavy rains, severe winds and even thunderstorms across a huge swath of the United States this week — just in time to disrupt Christmas travel. "There's the threat of locally heavy rain and this system could be windy enough to disrupt travel at airports in the east," said a lead meteorologist at the Weather Channel. The developing storm, already blowing through Southern California on Monday, is set to lash the Gulf States with heavy rain on Tuesday before bringing wet and windy weather through the Midwest and Northeast.

DREAMers Issued Licenses for First Time in Ariz.

Some immigrants who were brought to the U.S. by their parents when they were young — known as DREAMers after the DREAM Act — arrived at Arizona Departments of Motor Vehicles as early as 4 a.m. on Monday, the first day that they could legally apply for driver's licenses, NBC News reported. U.S. District Judge David Campbell on Thursday issued a preliminary injunction barring the state from upholding Gov. Jan Brewer's policy of denying the licenses to the young immigrants, who are protected from deportation under President Barack Obama's 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program (DACA). Although licenses were being issued, the legal fight for immigrants in Arizona isn't over. Brewer has already said she will ask the Supreme Court to hear an appeal to the injunction. Read »

No Charges for Fired Wisc. Cop Over Fatal Shooting

The Milwaukee police officer who shot and killed a black man in April won't be charged, a district attorney announced Monday, NBC News reported. Dontre Hamilton, 31, was shot 14 times by former officer Christopher Manney during a confrontation at Red Arrow Park on April 30, according to NBC station WTMJ. District Attorney John T. Chisholm said that Manney "was justified in firing” because Hamilton had taken Manney's baton while the officer was responding to a complaint about a man sleeping in a public park, and the Manney was attempting to "stop the threat." Hamilton's family said he had a history of mental illness, according to WTMJ. Manney was fired in October for failing to follow department rules in the moments leading up to the altercation. Read »
