New Evidence Shows Early Humans Left Africa More Than 2 Million Years Ago

Stone tools unearthed in China help make a case that early hominid ancestors of humans migrated from Africa more than 2 million years ago. That’s much earlier than any previous evidence showed. According to the findings published in the journal Nature, the tools were found at Shangchen, a newly discovered Paleolithic site of the southern Chinese Loess Plateau.

Trump Plans Immigration Huddle With GOP Lawmakers As Family Separation Continues

As border patrol agents separate children from their families at a rate of about 40 per day, President Donald Trump plans to meet with GOP lawmakers on their immigration proposals. According to Politico, the meeting will take place Tuesday. The meeting comes after an extraordinary week in which Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited the bible to justify the government’s actions and Trump blamed Democrats for the policy his administration announced in April. “I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has...
