Here’s Your Morning Scoop.

It’s Friday, May 31, 2019. New Hampshire, President Trump and the Abortion debate are in the news this morning. Here’s what you need to know: 

New Hampshire has become the 21st state to abolish the death penalty or Captial Punishment. The senate voted to override Governor Chris Sununu’s veto. New Hampshire now joins 20 other states that have abolished the death penalty through either state legislative or state judicial action. These states include all of the New England states, Illinois, New York, Alaska, the District of Columbia, and Hawaii. States where the governors have placed a moratorium either permanently or temporarily include California, Colorado, Oregon, and Pennsylvania. 29 states nationwide, the United States federal government and the U.S. Armed forces still use the death penalty.

President Trump says, on June 10th, he will place a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports. He tweets, “The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied…at which time the Tariffs will be removed.” The tariffs are expected to reach 25% by October. 

On Thursday, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards signed a bill which bans abortions once there is a detectable heartbeat. The bill excluded exceptions to rape or incest. Louisiana follows Georgia, Alabama and Missouri with this bill, heightening the abortion debate. Georgia has seen backlash from companies such as Disney, Netflix and Amazon who have all threatened to produce their shows elsewhere.
