Cops should check houses for elder abuse, lawmaker says

The Philippine National Police (PNP) should spearhead house-to-house surveys to find out if senior citizens are being treated well by their families, a party-list lawmaker said on Monday.

There are also reports of prolonged inhumane treatment of elders who suffer from mental illness or failing physical health." As House Bill (HB) 6891 or the Anti-Elder Abuse Act has yet to become a law, she said the PNP can already check houses to see how the elderly in the country are being treated.

US Republicans risking conservative backlash over immigration

NEW YORK --- The push toward immigration votes in the House is intensifying the divide among Republicans on one of the party's most animating issues and fueling concerns that a voter backlash could cost the GOP control of the House in November.

One tea party group described the Republican plan as "the final betrayal." Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, who is close to President Donald Trump, tweeted Friday that Ryan is "trying to open our borders even more and give illegal immigrants the biggest amnesty in American history."
