The [Wednesday] Papers

"Early on there had been whispers that the new President's instinct was to pull out of Afghanistan but now we know 3,900 more U.S. soldiers will soon be sent in," the Bureau of Investigative Journalism reports.

"The clues were there in the data monitored by the Bureau. The US Air Force has dropped 1,984 missiles and bombs in Afghanistan in 2017, according to the latest figures, nearly three times the number it had released at the same time last year.

"The Bureau of Investigative Journalism has been tracking US military activity in Afghanistan since 2015. The numbers paint a stark picture of an entrenched and multifaceted conflict that has refused to comply with the hopes of the White House."

Authoritarian America
"California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye on Tuesday pushed back against criticism of her pleas to federal authorities to stop courthouse arrests of undocumented immigrants, telling a Sacramento gathering that she's challenging arrest policies, not immigration laws," the National Law Journal reports.

"If you're here, whatever your status, you enjoy the benefits of the laws of the state," Cantil-Sakauye told judges, lawyers and legislative staffers attending the Women in the Court Legislative Day at California's Capitol. A federal policy, not a law, "is superseding all of the other causes of justice," she said.

"Cantil-Sakauye in March assailed federal authorities for what she described as 'stalking' undocumented immigrants in state courthouses, saying the arrests dissuade potential witnesses and victims from coming to court. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials acknowledged the courthouse arrests."
