If Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) vote against a bill to reduce immigration, they will be going against the desires of their own voters.
And this is not simply a description of their constituents as a whole but, specifically, voters who have cast ballots for them in the past.
That conclusion comes courtesy of polling in Michigan and Ohio, conducted earlier this year by NumbersUSA, an organization that favors lower levels of immigration. The group this week will launch a long-term campaign to pressure Stabenow and Brown, along with other Democratic senators up for re-election next year, in states President Donald Trump carried in 2016.
Foxconn Technology Group, which helped turn China into the center of electronics manufacturing, said it would build a $10 billion plant in Wisconsin to make display panels used in televisions and other products.
“The plan, announced Wednesday at a White House ceremony, marks the first major U.S. investment for Foxconn, the world’s largest contract manufacturer of electronics and the maker of iPhones and other gadgets for Apple Inc. […]
“The announcement confirms plans reported Monday by The Wall Street Journal. Foxconn was exploring investments in seven states including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas.
“Some of those states, including Wisconsin, were pivotal to Mr. Trump’s victory in 2016, and are home to many of the working-class voters who were seen as key to his win.”
WASHINGTON — In a dispute that could yield one of the most important judicial decisions of this generation, the US Supreme Court on Tuesday is set to hear arguments examining whether the Constitution requires state governments to license and recognize marriages between persons of the same-sex.
The issues arise in four consolidated cases from same-sex couples in Ohio, Tennessee, Michigan, and Kentucky. The couples are challenging state laws and state constitutional amendments that limit marriage to its traditional definition – a union of one man and one woman.
