Tuesday's Mini-Report, 2.26.19

Today's edition of quick hits.

Today's edition of quick hits:

* At the border: "Thousands of allegations that migrant children in U.S. custody were subjected to sexual abuse, harassment or inappropriate sexual conduct were reported over a four-year span to the government agency tasked with overseeing their care, according to documents released Tuesday by a Democratic lawmaker."

* Two nuclear-armed enemies: "Pakistan says India launched an airstrike on its territory early Tuesday that caused no casualties, while India said it targeted a terrorist training camp in a pre-emptive strike that killed a 'very large number' of militants."

* This is probably not good news: "Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has submitted his resignation, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News."

* This is an important setback, but the debate isn't over: "A House-passed bill to halt U.S. involvement in Yemen's deadly civil war will not get a vote in the Senate, a setback to Democrats and Republicans who sought to cut off U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen."

* A sensible move: "Gov. Tony Evers issued an executive order Monday pulling back Wisconsin troops from the U.S. border with Mexico."

* Good luck with that: "A lawyer for the Trump Organization has asked the House Judiciary Committee to cease any investigations related to it, claiming that the panel's work has been tainted by its hiring of an outside lawyer whose firm has represented Trump's company."

* Selective service: "A federal judge's decision Friday that the law requiring men -- but not women -- to register for a U.S. military draft is unconstitutional has no immediate impact on women or the U.S. Selective Service System. But it does revive debate about whether the country needs a military draft system and, if so, whether all 18-year-olds, regardless of gender, should be required to register."

* A case worth watching: "An amended class-action lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court on Thursday accused President Donald Trump, his three eldest children and his company of collaborating with a fraudulent marketing scheme to prey on investors -- including by recruiting teenagers, promising them success as 'The Trumps of Tomorrow.'"Anything to add?
