COVID-19 keeps Melania Trump from attending MAGA rally

First lady Melania Trump will not be present at her husband’s rally tonight because of lingering health complications following her recovery from COVID-19, according to Fox News.

The “Make America Great Again” rally in Pennsylvania tonight takes place only two days prior to the last presidential debate of the 2020 election on Thursday.

The first lady has not been in the public eye since Sept. 29 because of her lingering cough, but continues to recover, said Melania Trump’s chief of staff.

Murder victim identified over three decades after death

A male murder victim was identified 35 years after his body was found dead in Pensacola, Florida, on Jan. 23, 1985, according to CNN

A family member attempting to locate their missing uncle advanced the investigation in identifying an unnamed murder victim after reading the police website in 2018.

William Ernest Thompson, the murder victim in the investigation, was identified by a relative by recognizing his belt buckle.

Thompson would be 85 years old today.

Company returns job opportunities to Black districts

A company run by president and CEO Mark Wilson plans to give the Black community thousands of jobs and economic prosperity, according to NBC.

Chime Solutions focuses on bringing Black citizens back on their feet by providing more job opportunities to struggling areas.

Wilson and his wife Shelly Wilson, a microbiologist, sold their previous company, RYLA Teleservices Inc., for $70 million in 2010. 

The two plan to hire a diverse employee population in their new company.

Chime plans to employ 10,000 workers in 10 economically challenged cities, many of which are in predominantly Black areas.

Trump’s immigration policies under review

The U.S. Supreme Court declared on Monday that it will investigate President Trump’s immigration policies, according to the New York Times.

Trump’s program that delayed entry for at least 60,000 Mexican citizens, along with deviation of $2.5 billion of Department of Defense funds for the construction of the southwestern border wall, are among the policies under the Supreme Court’s review.

The court will also review whether undocumented citizens should be omitted from the 2020 census while determining seats in Congress.

The court’s process might allow Trump to influence the reallocation of congressional seats regardless of the 2020 election results.
