Two Groups That Helped Dems Win Back the House Are Joining Forces For 2020
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast / Photos GettyTwo grassroots progressive organizations formed after President Trump's inauguration are joining forces in advance of the 2020 election.

Swing Left, which had been primarily committed in the last cycle to helping Democrats take back a majority in the House of Representatives, will bring Flippable, an outfit devoted to turning state legislatures blue, under its umbrella. The merged entity will continue to go by Swing Left.

The goal of the merger is to create a unified strategy and better equip volunteers and donors to help in the upcoming presidential race as well as down-ballot contests. Combined, the organizations raised some $13 million in 2018 in addition to having a community of more than a million of those volunteers and donors.

Democratic Rep. Tells Acting DHS Chief: Migrant Kid Deaths Under Your Watch Are ‘Intentional'
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/CSPANThe acting head of the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday was accused of overseeing the "intentional" deaths of five migrant children, in an aggressive line of questioning by a Democratic member of the House Committee on Homeland Security.

Rep. Lauren Underwood, an Illinois Democrat serving her first term, called the deaths the logical result of "a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration," an assertion that Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan disputed as "an appalling accusation."

McAleenan, who was first tapped to replace outgoing secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in April, previously served as commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, where he was an architect of the administration's policy of separating migrant children from their families. That policy, Underwood said, as well as a spate of recent deaths of children in DHS custody, amounts to more than simple administrative negligence.

Know-Nothing Ben Carson Is a Threat to Our Democracy
Andrew Harnik/AP/REX/ShutterstockDuring a grilling by the House Financial Services Committee on Tuesday, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson faced an actual expert on housing: Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA).

Porter, a former law professor who wrote the textbook on consumer law, asked Carson about REOs, a term related to foreclosures. He mistakenly thought she was asking about Oreos—as in the cookie—and Twitter lost its mind. At one point, the band REO Speedwagon was trending.

If Carson's ignorance wasn't enough, he later tweeted out a photo of himself with a package of Oreos.

Planned Parenthood President: Trump's "Pro-Life" Agenda Is Killing Thousands in the U.S. and Globally
A second federal judge has blocked a gag rule that would have stripped federal funding known as Title X for Planned Parenthood and other clinics that refer patients for abortions or even mention abortion as an option. The judge's ruling halts the rule, which was announced by President Trump in February and was scheduled to go into effect on May 3. Washington state Federal Judge Stanley Bastian ruled against the changes to Title X funding Thursday, saying they would require clinics "to face a Hobson's choice that harms patients as well as the providers." This came two days after an Oregon judge issued a preliminary injunction to stop the gag order from going into effect, calling the rule a "ham-fisted approach to public health policy." Title X covers non-abortion services like STD prevention, cancer screenings and contraception, and provides over $280 million in funding for 4 million mostly low-income women every year. We speak with the president of Planned Parenthood, Dr. Leana Wen. She says the gag rule would force doctors "to compromise the oath that we took to serve our patients."
