The UN’s special rapporteur on the human rights of migrants has submitted a formal request for an investigation into the death of Jakelin Caal Maquin, a seven-year-old Guatemalan migrant who died of dehydration and shock while in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection earlier this month, The Guardian reports.

The big picture: The UN watchdog, Felipe González Morales, told The Guardian that the Trump administration must abide by international obligations to protect the rights of migrants who arrive at the border, especially children. Part of what led Morales to call for an independent, "in-depth" inquiry is that key facts of the case — including the state of Maquin's health when she was taken into custody and whether she and her father were offered water — have been disputed by CBP.

Louisville officer: "Breonna Taylor would be alive" if we had served no-knock warrant

Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, the Louisville officer who led the botched police raid that caused the death of Breonna Taylor, said the No. 1 thing he wishes he had done differently is either served a "no-knock" warrant or given five to 10 seconds before entering the apartment: "Breonna Taylor would be alive, 100 percent."

Driving the news: Mattingly, who spoke to ABC News and Louisville's Courier Journal for his public interview, was shot in the leg in the initial moments of the March 13 raid. Mattingly did not face any charges after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said he and another officer were "justified" in returning fire to protect themselves against Taylor's boyfriend.

U.S. vs. Google — the siege begins

The Justice Department fired the starter pistol on what's likely to be a years-long legal siege of Big Tech by the U.S. government when it filed a major antitrust suit Tuesday against Google.

The big picture: Once a generation, it seems, federal regulators decide to take on a dominant tech company. Two decades ago, Microsoft was the target; two decades before that, IBM.

Why the stimulus delay isn't a crisis (yet)

If the impasse between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House on a new stimulus deal is supposed to be a crisis, you wouldn't know it from the stock market, where prices continue to rise.

  • That's been in no small part because U.S. economic data has held up remarkably well in recent months thanks to the $2 trillion CARES Act and Americans' unusual ability to save during the crisis.
