Theresa May's Government Limps On After Surviving No-Confidence Vote
Reuters / U.K. ParliamentTheresa May's government has survived a no-confidence vote called by the opposition Labour party following the humiliating rejection of her Brexit deal—the largest parliamentary defeat in British history.

Although dozens of her colleagues rebelled against her in the vote on her Brexit deal on Tuesday, the Conservative party rallied behind her—alongside the Northern Irish DUP which has a loose coalition arrangement with the Conservatives—to allow her to limp on with her faltering attempts to see through Britain's exit from the European Union.

May won the vote by 325 to 306.

Judge Blocks Trump Plan to Add Citizenship Question to Census, Citing "Smorgasbord" of Broken Rules
A federal judge in New York City has ruled against the Trump administration's decision to put a citizenship question on the census. In a lengthy opinion, U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman wrote that in deciding to add a citizenship question to the census, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross violated a "veritable smorgasbord" of federal rules and "alternately ignored, cherry-picked, or badly misconstrued the evidence in the record before him." Ross announced the citizenship question in March, touting it as a way to enforce the Voting Rights Act and protect minorities against voter discrimination. Voting rights activists feared the question would deter immigrants from participating in the census, leading to a vast undercount in states with large immigrant communities. That could impact everything from the redrawing of congressional maps to the allocation of federal funding. We speak with David Cole, national legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, which challenged the addition of the citizenship question.

Deafening Silence From White House as Republicans Chide Steve King
Drew Angerer/GettyThe walls at the Capitol have closed in on Rep. Steve King (R-IA) over his latest racist remarks, but a growing number of Democrats are wondering why any walls are still standing around King at all, let alone the president who they see as the race-baiter-in-chief.    

On Tuesday, the House overwhelmingly voted to reject white supremacy and white nationalism after King publicly questioned how those terms ever became offensive. That vote came a day after Republican leaders in the House stripped him of his committee assignments (where lawmakers do the serious work of legislating for their constituents' interests while on Capitol Hill).

The move appeared to have rendered King, normally one of the most talkative lawmakers on the Hill when he wants to be, temporarily speechless; he emerged from his office Tuesday only to refuse to answer any questions from a crowd of film crews gathered outside.
