Virginia governor restores voting rights to 69k ex-felons

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced Tuesday that he has restored voting rights to more than 69,000 former felons who have completed their prison sentences but are still on probation.

Northam’s move mirrors a proposed constitutional amendment recently approved by the General Assembly that would automatically restore voting rights to people convicted of felonies once they serve their time and are released from prison. To take effect, the amendment must be approved by the legislature again next year and must win approval from voters in a statewide ballot referendum.

Until now, former felons who have served their sentences were not eligible to have their civil rights restored until after they completed probation. The new eligibility criteria announced by Northam means that, going forward, people convicted of felonies will become eligible to have their rights restored once they serve their prison time, although the governor’s office would still have to approve it.

Arkansas governor signs near-total abortion ban into law

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Tuesday signed into law legislation banning nearly all abortions in the state, a sweeping measure that supporters hope will force the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit its landmark Roe v. Wade decision but opponents vow to block before it takes effect later this year.

The Republican governor had expressed reservations about the bill, which only allows the procedure to save the life of the mother and does not provide exceptions for those impregnated by rape or incest. Arkansas is one of at least 14 states where legislators have proposed outright abortion bans this year.

Hutchinson said he was signing the bill because of its “overwhelming legislative support and my sincere and long-held pro-life convictions."

Court allows U.S. to resume expelling unaccompanied children


A three-member panel of circuit judges gave U.S. border officials permission on Friday to use a Trump-era emergency policy to swiftly expel unaccompanied migrant children from American soil without a court hearing or an asylum interview.

Judges Gregory Katsas, Neomi Rao and Justin Walker of the U.S. Circuit Court in Washington, D.C. paused a lower court order that had blocked the government from expelling children apprehended along U.S. borders without their parents or legal guardians. All three judges were appointed by former President Trump.

Supreme Court strikes down case law that allowed Texas governor to ban abortions during pandemic

San Antonio Current

The U.S. Supreme Court handed a win to abortion-rights groups Monday, eliminating lower court rulings that upheld Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's ban on nearly all abortions during the early stages of the pandemic.

Abbott, a Republican, mandated a statewide stop to "nonessential" medical procedures in March of last year, saying the pause was needed to preserve medical resources during the health crisis. However, Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health groups argued that abortions are rarely performed at hospitals and seldom require extensive personal protective equipment.

The high court's Monday ruling wiped out a pair rulings from the lower U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that sided with the Texas GOP on the ban.

While Abbott's order ended during the summer, he asked Supreme Court to permit the lower court rulings to remain in place, presumably as legal cover for future abortion restrictions.

In a statement supplied to NBC News, Planned Parenthood said it fought Abbott's procedural move because it wanted to "make sure bad case law was wiped from the books."

The health group, in conjunction with the Center for Reproductive Rights and the Lawyering Project, also called the governor's ban "a transparent attempt to chip away at access to reproductive health care by exploiting a public health crisis."
