Judge: US Can't Refuse Asylum...Three Killed in Chicago Hospital Shooting...Trump: Saudi Arabia a "Spectacular Ally"

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The Trump administration cannot refuse asylum to immigrants crossing illegally into the U.S. from Mexico. That’s the ruling of a federal judge Monday after hearing arguments in San Francisco. President Donald Trump issued a proclamation Nov. 9 that said anyone who crossed the southern border would be ineligible for asylum. That could potentially make it harder for thousands of people who enter the U.S. to avoid deportation.

CHICAGO (AP) – Chicago’s mayor says the city is in mourning after losing a doctor, a pharmaceutical assistant and a police officer in Monday’s shooting at Mercy Hospital, on the city’s South Side.

Then police say the gunman ran into the hospital and shot the pharmacy resident and the officer. It’s not clear if the attacker then killed himself or was killed by police.

Trump has resisted calls for a stronger response to the Oct. 2 killing of the U.S.-based writer by agents of the Saudi government.
