Ark Gov Defends Accepting Refugees For Resettlement

ARK GOV ON REFUGEES - President Donald Trump’s administration had issued an executive order late last year giving states the right to refuse acceptance of refugees.

AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

When President Trump's defense team delivers its opening statement in the Senate impeachment trial next week, famed defense attorney Alan Dershowitz will have a starring role.

But in an interview with NPR's Mary Louise Kelly on Friday, he sought to make clear that his involvement is limited to arguing that the two articles of impeachment do not satisfy the constitutional criteria for removing the president from office.

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear two cases challenging state attempts to penalize electoral college delegates who fail to vote for the presidential candidate they were pledged to support.

Electoral college delegates are selected by each party, and under state laws, they are pledged to cast their ballots for the candidate who carries the popular vote. But from 1796 to 2016, over 20 presidential elections, 150 electors have not abided by that pledge, according to FairVote, a nonpartisan voting rights advocacy group.
