That means that House Republicans who recently voted to sue President Barack Obama for what they say is his failure to obey the Constitution seem likely to hand him new war powers to combat militants seeking an Islamic state. At the same time, legislation seems on track to ext...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-584095982014-09-13T11:53:05.865-06:00" id="#license-2014-09-13T11:53:05.865-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Most of us live here by choice in this great country, but U.S. policies are increasingly hostile toward highly skilled immigrants and force us to return and compete against the U.S. It’s very hard for us to invest in the U.S., knowing that we could lose our jobs and be deported immediat...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

As Congress finishes work on a must-pass spending bill set for votes next week, the most conservative lawmakers on Capitol Hill are eager to send a message on immigration, and stand firm against a government lending bank. But a year after they forced a 16-day partial government shutdown over President Barack Obama’s health care law, few seem to have the stomach to push their demands that far again. “No question we learned that with the aid...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-583996652014-09-10T19:32:56.363-06:00" id="#license-2014-09-10T19:32:56.363-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
