    An unintended consequence of the war on drugs: Mandatory minimum sentences that prevailed through the 1980s and 1990s filled federal prisons with low-level offenders, at great expense to taxpayers and to the country’s black and Hispanic communities. Cities, meanwhile, did not get safer.

    President Donald Trump isn’t draining the swamp in Washington. He’s shrouding it in a veil of secrecy and pumping in more slime.

    On Thursday, a federal appeals court based in Virginia handed President Donald Trump another defeat in his efforts to block immigrants from six nations — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — from entering the United States. It is likely to go to the U.S. Supreme Court next. The president would be wiser to recognize he cannot impose a religious-based ban.

    WASHINGTON — The shocking thing about Greg Gianforte’s assault on a journalist isn’t that he body-slammed and punched a reporter but that it took so long for the inevitable to occur.

    WASHINGTON — When in the Senate chamber, Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, sits by choice at the desk used by the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan. New York’s scholar-senator would have recognized that Sasse has published a book of political philosophy in the form of a guide to parenting.

    Dying is a sure thing. Accepting it intellectually is easy. Embracing it emotionally, however, is extremely difficult, not only when it applies to ourselves, but especially when our loved ones face it.

    Bills being floated in Congress by a handful of Republicans would impose taxes on remittances — money U.S. residents send abroad, usually to relatives — to pay for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall. The idea is as flawed as Trump’s own ridiculous assertion that Mexico must and will eventually pay for the wall.

    Some are claiming victory for the opposition because of reports that about 150 people walked out of Vice President Mike Pence’s Notre Dame commencement speech: “That’s great turnout!” tweeted one of them. “Thank you for everyone who showed courage by walking out.”

    It is not surprising but it is deeply depressing that the Trump administration is reviving the “global gag rule” — so called because it bans U.S. financial assistance to nongovernmental health care organizations in foreign countries if they provide abortions or even utter the word to their patients in counseling them or referring them elsewhere.

    For journalists covering domestic policy, this past week poses some hard choices. Should we focus on the Trump budget’s fraudulence — not only does it invoke $2 trillion in phony savings, it counts them twice — or on its cruelty? Or should we talk instead about the Congressional Budget Office assessment of Trumpcare, which would be devastating for older, poorer and sicker Americans?

    WASHINGTON — President Trump arrived in Jerusalem this week with a most curious bit of information for Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
