Holiday Storms Poised to Bring Rain, Snow Across U.S.

Storms brewing in the U.S. are set to bring rain, snow and winds that could make holiday travel a messy affair, NBC News reported. A soggy north-south storm system that slammed the Pacific northwest and Southern California Sunday night, bringing down trees and power lines, is pushing eastward, threatening to deliver rain and gusty winds along the Gulf Coast and snow in the Upper Midwest on Tuesday. The storm is then expected to batter the East Coast with wet and windy weather on Wednesday — right at the prime pre-holiday travel time. The Midwest lakes and central Mississippi Valley may be the only areas likely to see a white Christmas, as snowfall is expected Wednesday evening and on Thursday. "Much to the dismay of kids, it's panning out to be a really wet and windy system," said Roy Lucksinger, lead meteorologist at The Weather Channel. Read »

DREAMers Issued Licenses for First Time in Ariz.

Some immigrants who were brought to the U.S. by their parents when they were young — known as DREAMers after the DREAM Act — arrived at Arizona Departments of Motor Vehicles as early as 4 a.m. on Monday, the first day that they could legally apply for driver's licenses, NBC News reported. U.S. District Judge David Campbell on Thursday issued a preliminary injunction barring the state from upholding Gov. Jan Brewer's policy of denying the licenses to the young immigrants, who are protected from deportation under President Barack Obama's 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program (DACA). Although licenses were being issued, the legal fight for immigrants in Arizona isn't over. Brewer has already said she will ask the Supreme Court to hear an appeal to the injunction. Read »

No Charges for Fired Wisc. Cop Over Fatal Shooting

The Milwaukee police officer who shot and killed a black man in April won't be charged, a district attorney announced Monday, NBC News reported. Dontre Hamilton, 31, was shot 14 times by former officer Christopher Manney during a confrontation at Red Arrow Park on April 30, according to NBC station WTMJ. District Attorney John T. Chisholm said that Manney "was justified in firing” because Hamilton had taken Manney's baton while the officer was responding to a complaint about a man sleeping in a public park, and the Manney was attempting to "stop the threat." Hamilton's family said he had a history of mental illness, according to WTMJ. Manney was fired in October for failing to follow department rules in the moments leading up to the altercation. Read »
