5 things to know for September 12: Immigration, vaping, 2020 Dems, Bahamas, tariffs

Posted Thursday, 12 September 2019 ‐ CNN

(CNN)Triple Crown winner Justify reportedly failed a drug test before the Kentucky Derby last year (which should have merited a disqualification) but was allowed to compete anyway. Here's what else you need to know to Get Up to Speed and Out the Door. (You can also get "5 Things You Need to Know Today" delivered to your inbox daily. Sign up here.)1. ImmigrationThe White House gets a big victory on immigration from the Supreme Court. A Trump administration rule that dramatically limits the ability of Central American migrants to claim asylum can go into effect nationwide, the court said, even while legal challenges to it are still alive. The rule essentially bars people traveling through Mexico from being able to claim asylum at the US border. Meantime, the President's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, met with Senate Republicans to try to get them on board with the White House's proposal to overhaul legal immigration, though many seemed skeptical.2. VapingThe Trump administration is working to ban flavored e-cigarettes. A new policy is coming from the FDA that would require e-cigarette companies to get flavored versions of their products off the market. Health officials have argued that flavored e-cigarettes are too appealing to teens, and vaping use has skyrocketed among young people. But tobacco companies claim flavored e-cigarettes help get adults to quit traditional cigarettes.3. Campaign 2020It's Debate Night in America (again). The third Democratic presidential debate is tonight in Houston, and it'll only be a one-night affair. The debate field was whittled down to 10 candidates because the presidential hopefuls had to reach polling and fundraising benchmarks to quality (and many didn't). Tonight's big draw: seeing Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren side by side on a debate stage for the first time. Biden's advisers say the former veep will take it to Warren, saying the Dems need to nominate someone who can offer up "more than plans." Also, the candidates have been warned not to curse. Wait, what?
