In other news, the Trump regime is arguing in court that immigrant children should not be removed from their sponsors and reunited with their real families because it would be traumatic.

Meanwhile, Border Patrol agents recently found a sophisticated tunnel that runs directly underneath one proposed site for Trump's fantasy border wall.

Finally, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) has signed a bill that will raise the state's minimum wage to $15 per hour over the next five years.

The bill raises the current $8.85 minimum wage to $10 an hour in July, and then increases the rate by $1 in subsequent years until it reaches $15 in 2024, but not for all workers.

Farm workers’ wages will climb to $12.50 over five years, for example. Small businesses with and seasonal employees would see their minimum wage reach $15 an hour in 2026. Tipped workers, who currently have a minimum hourly wage of $2.13, would see it climb to $5.13 an hour by 2024.

Good things happen when you elect Democrats.
