BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union, Japan and other nations hunting for the eastern Atlantic Bluefin tuna are fearful that Turkey's unilateral decision to exceed catch limits agreed last year is threatening the stock recovery and the organization regulating its conservation.
A Republican bill to provide a three-week funding extension for the Department of Homeland Security cleared a procedural hurdle in the House of Representatives on Friday, indicating support for final passage in the chamber. The House voted 240-183 along strict party lines to approve a procedural rule that allows a vote on the funding extension later in the day, ahead of a midnight deadline that would trigger a partial shutdown of the domestic security agency. The House temporary funding extension is aimed at allowing Republicans to continue their fight against President Barack Obama's executive immigration orders that lift the threat of deportation from millions of undocumented immigrants. The Senate on Friday passed a full-year $39.7 billion funding measure for Homeland Security that does not include any immigration restrictions.
