Hello there, interested public! There’s lots to catch you up on this week. Minutes ago, the ABA President issued a statement on the Trump Administration’s Family Separation Policy. The Associated Press took a poll of district attorneys to find out which ones would go on the record for non-enforcement of their states’ new anti-abortion legislation. The CFPB gave student loan advice on Twitter that one of its founders called “negligent or worse,” while the Trump Administration followed through and hired consulting firms to evaluate the federal government’s student loan portfolio. All this and more are in the links below.

See you around,
Sam
