ImmigrationNearly 250 migrant children held in reportedly poor conditions at a Customs and Border Protection facility in Texas will be moved. The children should be in the Department of Health and Human Services’ shelter system by today. The move comes after a team of lawyers, doctors and advocates warned of major health and hygiene problems — including in some cases a lack of soap — after visiting multiple US Customs and Border Protection facilities in the state. The Trump administration argued in court last week that detained migrant children didn’t need toothbrushes, medicine and blankets in order to be held in “safe and sanitary conditions.”Meanwhile, Mexico has deployed about 15,000 troops to its US border (on top of the 2,000 service members it’s sent to its southern border with Belize and Guatemala). Mexico is under renewed pressure from the Trump administration to help slow migration flows northward.Read MoreLawyer: Migrant children are taking care of toddlers in El Paso Border Control Patrol StationLawyer: Migrant children are taking care of toddlers in El Paso Border Control Patrol StationLawyer: Migrant children are taking care of toddlers in El Paso Border Control Patrol StationJUST WATCHEDLawyer: Migrant children are taking care of toddlers in El Paso Border Control Patrol StationReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

US and IranPresident Trump signed an executive order yesterday imposing new sanctions on Iran as retaliation for Iran’s downing last week of a US military drone. The President said the “hard-hitting” sanctions will financially punish Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The sanctions also target Iranian military officials and the country’s top diplomat. Iran’s state media denounced the move as a sign of “America’s desperation.” CNN’s Stephen Collinson says Trump’s sanctions move still risks putting the two countries on a path to war.

Bill Gates told the Economic Club of Washington DC that “the government needs to get involved” because technology has become so central to all areas of our lives. Microsoft’s big tech rivals — Apple, Google, Amazon and Facebook — all face increased scrutiny from the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice, which could lead to antitrust investigations. Microsoft had its own antitrust lawsuit to deal with two decades ago and ended up changing some of its business practices after a settlement with the Justice Department.On GPS: Bill Gates talks current eventsOn GPS: Bill Gates talks current eventsexp GPS 0217 Bill Gates interview current events full part 1_00011201JUST WATCHEDOn GPS: Bill Gates talks current eventsReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Now, the government in Myanmar has shut down mobile data networks in parts of that country. It was done “for the sake of security and the public interest,” a Myanmar communications official said, and services will resume when “stability is restored.” A top UN official warned of “serious implications for human rights” in places where mobile internet services were cut.The affected areas include Rakhine state, where violence had forced more than 720,000 Rohingya to flee into Bangladesh. US lawmakers and human rights groups say the anti-Rohingya crackdown amounts to ethnic cleansing and even genocide. Internet shutdowns have become increasingly common across the world in recent years, especially in Asia, often after protests or other anti-government activity. By the way, the internet is back on in Ethiopia.Who are the Rohingya and why are they fleeing?Who are the Rohingya and why are they fleeing?Who are the Rohingya and why are they fleeing?JUST WATCHEDWho are the Rohingya and why are they fleeing?ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

A “potentially dangerous” blast of hot air is forecast to engulf the continent this week. Temperatures are expected to hit 100 degrees Fahrenheit in France, Germany, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Switzerland and Italy. The uncommon heat could hang around until the start of July, one forecasting agency predicts. A climate professor in Germany says heat waves like this will happen more frequently because of climate change. He notes the hottest summers in Europe since the 16th century have all come in the past 17 years.Europe to experience heat waveEurope to experience heat waveEurope to experience heat waveJUST WATCHEDEurope to experience heat waveReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
