In Nielsen v. Preap, four justices joined Justice Samuel Alito yesterday to adopt an expansive interpretation of a mandatory-immigration-detention statute. In Demore v.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday that her department may have been founded to combat terrorism, but its mission is shifting to also confront emerging online threats.

Creed II continues the legacy connection to the classic Rocky franchise by having Michael B. Jordan‘s character Adonis Creed face-off with Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu).

The two losses in Florida over the weekend, especially Sunday’s 6-1 loss to the Panthers, put an exclamation point, as it were, to this most recent slide. The Wings’ have lost 10 of their last 11 games, and too many of them are becoming one-sided, if not on the scoreboard, then on the ice...
