SPENCER CRITCHLEY, Democratic Strategist; Communication Advisor, Obama for America '08 and '12; Host, “Dastardly Cleverness in the Service of Good” podcast, willtalka bout: CONGRESS SCRAMBLES TO AGREE ON EMERGENCY BORDER BILL AS WHITE HOUSE, LIBERAL DEMS CLASH

A bill to provide $4.5 billion in emergency funding for the escalating humanitarian crisis at the border was on the rocks Tuesday as the White House threatened to veto over restrictions that would "hamstring" immigration enforcement -- and liberal Democrats complained the bill did not go far enough to rein in the administration's efforts on that front. Both the House and the Senate are scrambling to vote on funding ahead of the July 4 recess, amid reports of poor living conditions in government shelters and even deaths of child migrants as growing migrant flows flood across the border. More than 144,000 migrants were encountered or  apprehended at the border in May, many of them unaccompanied minors or family units, severely complicating efforts to house or deport them.

HANIA ALAIDROOS joined Brad Davis to talk about Keeping a lot of light on while you snooze -- such as from a television or bright nightlight -- has been linked with an increased risk of weight gain and obesity. Specifically, sleeping with a television or light on in the room was positively associated with gaining five kilograms, or 11 pounds, over a five-year period among women in a new study published in the medical journal JAMA Internal Medicine on Monday. "There was a 17% chance of gaining the five kilograms -- after we adjusted for confounding factors," said Dale Sandler, a senior investigator at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in North Carolina and senior author of the study. In addition, there was a 22% chance of becoming overweight and a 33% chance of becoming obese, she added.
