Activists plan lawsuit challenging Trump immigration changes

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) — A northern Virginia advocacy group is planning a lawsuit to challenge the Trump administration’s decision to end a program protecting some young immigrants from deportation.

Virginia election officials: Some voters got wrong ballots

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia election officials say dozens of voters were wrongly assigned ballots in a district that could determine party control in the House of Delegates.
