    On Thursday, February 16, the Senate took a series of votes on immigration - all of which failed to meet the 60-vote threshold to pass. Read below for FCNL's response and vote recommendations.

  2. Update Checking Our President on North Korea 

    President Trump and other U.S. leaders seem almost eager for a war with North Korea, with their tough talk and tweeted taunts. South Korean efforts to pause both military exercises and North Korean provocations while building small pockets of trust around the Winter Olympics are the first encouraging signs in months.
