Good morning, here’s what you need to know.

  • New rule will deport millions

Documents released on Tuesday by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that the Trump administration will be taking a much tougher approach to deporting immigrants than the Obama administration did. The new policy will make state and local law enforcement immigration agents. Millions will be deported, millions more than under the Obama administration. Obama deported immigrants mostly if they committed serious crimes, while the Trump administration will be deporting immigrants for minor crimes too.

  • A team of generals

Since H.R. McMaster has been appointed as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, that makes three generals on his team. Including Defense Secretary JimMattis, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, and now H.R. McMaster. “They’ll bring a very sober, realistic, practical experience base to the discussions in the Situation Room because they’ve lived it,” said a retired three-star general who worked with President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama.

  • Tough time with town halls

Congress is on recess this week, but the anti-Trump movement is in full swing. Legislators are returning to their home districts and are finding tough questions and anger during community town halls. One of the most worrisome issues for many constituents is the repeal of Obamacare. Some members of congress are canceling meetings for fear that there will be protesters at them.

  • Sweden angry over Trump comment

The arrest drew attention to President Donald Trump’s remark at a campaign rally last Saturday that Sweden has been experiencing terrorist attacks as a result of letting in refugees.
