May 17, 2019
 

Happy Friday from Washington, where House Republicans hope to block what they say is Democrats' bid to make sexual orientation and gender identity more important than religious freedom or women's safety and privacy. Rachel del Guidice has the GOP take, while Natassia Grover offers a mom's personal view. President Trump outlines a way forward in reforming the nation's broken immigration system. We've got the news from Fred Lucas and commentary from Mike Gonzalez. Plus: Jarrett Stepman on diversity madness on campus and Daniel Davis on foreign policy that honors America's founding. Enjoy your weekend.

The particularity and uniqueness of America mean that it cannot be replicated elsewhere—at least not easily, and certainly not by U.S. coercion. The best we can do is protect the rare jewel that we have in America with a foreign policy that is muscular but not adventurist.
