Top GOP lawmakers say they will bring an immigration overhaul bill to the floor early next year. This comes after President Trump discussed immigration reform with House GOP leaders Thursday.

Investigators were still on the scene late Tuesday gathering evidence after the latest in a series of deadly terror attacks using vehicles. The attacker Sayfulloh Saipov, a 29-year-old immigrant from Uzbekistan, drove his rented Home Depot truck directly onto a popular bike path on the west side of Manhattan in an apparent ISIS-inspired lone wolf attack. Officials say six people died at the scene with two more later succumbing to their injuries at the hospital.
