Wisconsin Family Builds Backyard Roller Coaster

When you're hours away from the nearest amusement park, what else can you do but build your own roller coaster? JT Nejedlo and Aidan Deavon of Delafield, Wisconsin were normal bored teenagers one summer when they came up with the idea. "We decided to build a roller coaster because it would be fun," said Nejedlo. As you can imagine, it was easier said than done, but with a dad who used to be a physics professor, they were given the green light to try. Deavon's dad came home to find the boys cutting a hole in the old tree house and putting together a track.

Trump Calls JCC Threats 'Horrible' After Clinton Criticism

Trump Calls JCC Threats 'Horrible' After Clinton Criticism

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that a series of bomb threats called in to Jewish community centers around the country in the last few months "are horrible and painful." They were his first remarks specifically addressing the threats, coming amid mounting criticism about his silence. Earlier Tuesday, Hillary Clinton called the series of threats and attacks against Jews and Jewish groups "so troubling" in a tweet that urged Trump to speak out against them. Trump spoke over an hour later at a news conference at the National Museum of African American History and Culture. "The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil," he said.

US to Expand Pool of People Targeted for Deportation

US to Expand Pool of People Targeted for Deportation

The Trump administration is greatly expanding the number of people living in the U.S. illegally who are considered a priority for deportation, including people arrested for traffic violations, according to agency documents released Tuesday. The documents represent a sweeping rewrite of the nation's immigration enforcement priorities. The Homeland Security Department memos, signed by Secretary John Kelly, lay out that any immigrant living in the United States illegally who has been charged or convicted of any crime — and even those suspected of a crime — will now be an enforcement priority. That could include people arrested for shop lifting or minor traffic offenses.
