  • The New York Times is sticking with the use of the term "illegal immigrant," despite the Associated Press cutting the term from their style guide earlier this month.

  • In an op-ed for CNN the president and CEO of the NAACP says that the GOP could learn something from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) about how to win votes from African Americans.
