Despite President Trump's last-minute, all-caps tweet to promote the GOP compromise immigration bill in the House — which would have allowed families to be kept in detention together long-term — the bill failed 301-121 on Wednesday afternoon.

What's next: House Republicans are expected to turn their focus to a more narrow bill that addresses migrant family separation and would overrule the Flores Settlement, which currently does not allow minors to be detained for more than 20 days.

One big thing: The bill received fewer votes than Goodlatte's hard-line immigration bill that failed last week despite moderates, conservative Freedom Caucus members and leadership collaborating on this one.

The backdrop: July 10th will mark 20 days since Trump signed his executive order ending family separation, meaning that the children who were initially detained with their families by DHS will legally have to go elsewhere if Congress — or Judge Dolly Gee — does not act.

Joe Biden's campaign released his 2019 tax returns on Tuesday, showing that he and his wife, Jill, paid nearly $300,000 in federal taxes last year.

Why it matters: The release, timed just hours before the first presidential debate, comes days after a bombshell New York Times report said that President Trump paid only $750 in federal taxes in 2016 and 2017. Biden's team is hoping to make the tax contrast a sticking point during their showdown.

NYC's coronavirus positivity rate spikes to highest since June

New York City's coronavirus positivity rate has ticked up to 3.25%, its highest since June, Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference on Tuesday.

Why it matters: The jump — from 1.93% on Monday — came on the first day that public elementary classrooms reopened in the city after months of closures, but guidelines state that all public schools will have to shut if the citywide seven-day positivity rate stays above 3%.
