Grassley of Iowa with Republican colleagues last month.Credit J.

Trump’s Travel Ban to Be Replaced by Restrictions Tailored to Certain Countries

“The Trump administration will ensure that the people who travel to the United States are properly vetted and those that don’t belong here aren’t allowed to enter,” said Jonathan Hoffman, the assistant secretary for public affairs at the department.Mr. Trump must still approve the new plan, but it appears to be similar to the kind the president tweeted about a week ago.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyGet the Morning Briefing by EmailWhat you need to know to start your day, delivered to your inbox Monday through Friday.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Trump Declines to Release List of His Visitors at Mar-a-Lago

Federal law exempts the White House from the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, which requires public disclosure of government documents. But CREW and its partners argued that because the presidential visitor records are typically maintained by the Secret Service — which is part of the Department of Homeland Security — they should not be exempt from public release.In July Judge Katherine Polk Failla of Federal District Court in Manhattan ordered the Trump administration to release the “records of presidential visitors at Mar-a-Lago” by September.But the Department of Justice, in a statement it sent to CREW, said it had decided not to release the names of everyone visiting with the president at Mar-a-Lago.“The remaining records that the Secret Service has processed in response to the Mar-a-Lago request contain, reflect, or otherwise relate to the president’s schedules,” Chad A. Readler, acting assistant attorney general, wrote in response to CREW in a letter dated Tuesday, but delivered on Friday. “The government believes that presidential schedule information is not subject to FOIA.”Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

The Obama administration had faced a similar lawsuit before it decided in late 2009 to start to make visitor logs public, a practice that stopped with Mr. Trump’s arrival.“After waiting months for a response to our request for comprehensive visitor logs from the president’s multiple visits to Mar-a-Lago and having the government ask for a last minute extension, today we received 22 names from the Japanese prime minister’s visit to Mar-a-Lago and nothing else,” Mr. Bookbinder said in a statement […]

Venezuela’s New, Powerful Assembly Takes Over Legislature’s Duties

The seizure of lawmaking powers on Friday is perhaps the most important move in a plan by Mr. Maduro to consolidate power for his party.On July 30, he asked Venezuelans to choose from a list of party stalwarts to form the Constituent Assembly, a body that would rewrite the Constitution and govern Venezuela for up to two years while doing so. Venezuelans were not given the option to reject the body, and opposition politicians did not participate in the vote.During the campaign, some top party members tried to tamp down fears of a power grab, saying the new assembly would not disband the legislature. But since the election, many party members have called for more drastic action, including imprisoning opposition lawmakers.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred. Please try again later.You are already subscribed to this email.View all New York Times newsletters.On Friday, Julio Borges, the opposition lawmaker who leads the legislature, called the Constituent Assembly’s actions tantamount to a coup. Mr. Borges said the legislature would not recognize the decision and reiterated that lawmakers viewed the assembly as a “fraudulent” group.In the wake of the July 30 vote, numerous countries including the United States, said they would not recognize the new assembly, either. Venezuela’s largest neighbors, Colombia and Brazil, have both said that Mr. […]

Affirmative Action Battle Has a New Focus: Asian-Americans

The case, which is clearly aimed for the Supreme Court, puts Asian-Americans front and center in the latest stage of the affirmative action debate. The issue is whether there has been discrimination against Asian-Americans in the name of creating a diverse student body. The Justice Department, which has signaled that it is looking to investigate “intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions,” may well focus on Harvard.The Harvard case asserts that the university’s admissions process amounts to an illegal quota system, in which roughly the same percentage of African-Americans, Hispanics, whites and Asian-Americans have been admitted year after year, despite fluctuations in application rates and qualifications.“It falls afoul of our most basic civil rights principles, and those principles are that your race and your ethnicity should not be something to be used to harm you in life nor help you in life,” said Edward Blum, the president of Students for Fair Admissions, the organization that is suing Harvard.His group, a conservative-leaning nonprofit based in Virginia, has filed similar suits against the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Texas at Austin, asserting that white students are at a disadvantage at those colleges because of their admissions policies.The federal government potentially has the ability to influence university admissions policies by withholding federal funds under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which forbids racial discrimination in programs that receive federal money.In many ways, the system the lawsuit is attacking is one Harvard points to with pride. The university has a long and pioneering history of support for affirmative action, going back at least to when Derek Bok, appointed president of Harvard in 1971, embraced policies that became a national model.The university has extended that ethos to many low-income students, allowing them to attend free.
