Late Tuesday afternoon, Senate Republicans said that they intend, as a voting bloc, to support legislation that would ensure that immigrant families not be separated when they try to enter the U.S. illegally. Despite that development, which is not guaranteed passage, the Trump Administration's practice of separating children and parents continues, including at a facility in the tri-state area.

Senate Republicans expressed confidence they'll be able to move the budget through their chamber by Friday afternoon. (Photo by AP) (Harrisburg) -- A deal on Pennsylvania's budget may be in the offing. On Tuesday, after considerable behind-the-scenes discussion, House lawmakers moved a compromise spending bill out of committee. Senate leaders and Governor Tom Wolf both said they support it.
