WASHINGTON — Complicated negotiations over immigration policy will only get tougher in the wake of President Donald Trump’s reported comments questioning why the United States should accept immigrants coming from “s---hole” countries.Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, told reporters Friday that he would not have made the comments and pointed to the harm they could cause to those ongoing discussions.
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration’s decision to cancel provisional residency permits for 200,000 Salvadorans came with an 18-month delay that ultimately punts the issue to Capitol Hill.But Republican lawmakers from Nebraska and Iowa were not rushing to say those affected should be allowed to stay.“This program is based on America’s generosity to help with urgent crises — it is not a long-term immigration program,” Rep. Jeff Fortenberry said in a statement.
WASHINGTON — Nebraska has a seat on the Senate Agriculture Committee again.Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb., announced Tuesday that she is joining the committee and cited the panel’s importance as it tackles the writing of a new farm bill to replace the one expiring later this year. “Throughout this process, I’m going to continue traveling Nebraska, as I’ve done for the past five years, and listen to thoughts, suggestions, and concerns from our state’s many ag producers,” Fischer said.
All those with daily congressional press credentials: vote tomorrow in the Standing Committee elections between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. There are two spots open. You vote for two candidates. @Emma_Dumain and @sarahdwire will make great additions to the committee.
@micahmertes Lived a block away the entire time I lived in Omaha, went to a lot of those midnight movies. Laughed out loud just now thinking back on how the whole theater would recite the lines from the Changing Lanes trailer. "He cut me off!!"
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
